    Kyle Seager coming off a down year. One of his worst offensive seasons.

    Owed a good chunk the next few years. I wonder if the Mariners would be open to moving.

    I doubt they'd be very open to trading him unless we're sending a very significant package. His BABIP indicates poor luck more than anything else (HRs, walk rate, and K-rate were all around career norms). He's pretty well paid, but I'd bet the Mariners would be asking for A LOT. As in Gleyber/Abreu/Plus.

    No Bae. But I'd give them a very nice package.

    I wouldn't be opposed to the Sox giving up Benintendi + and pay Stanton market rate(higher than market rate?). Unfortunately, they wouldn't do that.

    Kyle Seager is owed $74.5 million over the next four seasons (with a $15 million option for 2022 that becomes a player option with a trade) after posting 12.9 fWAR, valued at $102.8 million, over the first three seasons of his seven-year, $100 million contract with Seattle.

    I suspect the Mariners view Seager as a keeper.

    New Yankee manager Brian Cashman announced today that Aaron Hicks will be an everyday player next year, Ellsbury will be on the bench, and third base is Headley's position to lose.

    In other Yankees news:

    More interviews for the manager opening are coming with people whom Cashman hasn’t even booked yet, he said, as he tries to limit the amount of leaks.
    Cashman said that Chad Green, who excelled in a relief role this past season, would prepare for spring training as a starting pitcher, standard operating procedure for someone with Green’s profile.
    Asked whether Gleyber Torres can win the starting third-base job out of spring training, Cashman replied, “Sure, why not?”

    This is more of a cold stove question. But I didnt know where to put it.
    Why didn't the Yankees resign Billy Butler after 2016 instead of going after Carter?

    I was review past Silver Slugger winners and saw Butler's name. (DH, 2012)

    I wondered about that at the time, but they seemed to have no interest in considering resigning him, and he didn't play anywhere. So he either retired after 2016, or just couldn't find a job. I remember reading somewhere that he was a bit of a difficult personality in the clubhouse. Perhaps that had something to do with it.

    No surprise. Pretty much means Frazier is gone.

    Im fine with that, I like Frazier alot as a local guy, great clubhouse presence and all around likeable dude. However, he doesnt fit very well going forward, especially with Andujar and Torres knocking on the door. The past year has shown that the Yanks should continue their youth movement and not sign older free agent players.

    I hope one of those kids knocks that door down, because Headley at 3B doesn't fit very well moving forward either. His offensive game was certainly improved last season, but his defense doesn't seem all that viable anymore. Didn't take that much for him to lose his job at 3B last season, and if it's his job to lose I think he'll do it again.

    The Yankees should not sign older players that would impede their development as a contender going forward. They should also not allow slavish adherence to a "youth movement" to prevent them from acquiring (or retaining) any player who can help them reach that goal.

    I’m not saying that Frazier is the guy, just that the considerations should be practical, not ideological.

    Hicks is not durable to last a whole year; like to see what Clint can do over a full season.

    I think you can do both given Frazier plays probably in left or right field but I will admit I'm pretty worried about our depth at CF given Hicks' history.

    Perhaps it's irrational but I kinda worry about him being able to handle that for a significant stretch of games given his age and his general career trajectory of second half slumping. He DID buck that this year though so maybe, again, I'm just being irrational.


    To me centerfield is one of those low key spots I'd like to see them try and snag somebody in a trade.

    Well, if Hicks and Gardner are both available to split time there, it should save wear and tear on both of them..
    I used to think I was crazy... Now I am sure of it..

    Frazier played in CF as recently as 2016. And we have Ellsbury as well. We have 4 players capable of playing CF at least adequately, which is more than probably every other team can say.

    Jeter says "a lot of this started when he came out and expressed publicly that he didn't want to be part of a rebuild."

    "It's an organization that's been losing money for quite some time, so we have to turn that around," Jeter says. "It's easy to point the finger at him, because he makes the most money, but that doesn't necessarily mean that that's the move that's going to be made."
