    Maybe Andujar is so good at third base we don't need to go after Machado. Rather see the money spent for pitching.

    Of course Machado would rather play SS, they make more money as a free agent. if the Yankees were to offer 300M, he would have no problem playing 3B lol.

    This is why Andujar should be given the chance to play this year. If he hits .300 with say 15 to 20 HR and plays good defense, it might not be Machado numbers, but why would they need a 3B if they already have power in Giancarlo, Judge, Stanton, Bird?

    Look, if he plays a great shortstop this year, then you consider playing him there if it makes you better. ( SSS but his uzr/150 is better than Didi's )
    But I'd imagine that once Cashman is in a room wit him and if he gets Alex to talk to him. He'll be fine with whatever happens.
    Stanton does't want to DH but he'll be DH'ing quite a lot.
    ARod and Stanton were traded to the Yanks. Both were desperate to exit their respective situations with Rangers and Marlins. They didn't have the leverage that Machado will have as a free agent. He'll be in total control of his destination.

    I actually don't begrudge Machado on the position switch. He's young enough where it actually makes sense from a legacy standpoint. He's a career 115 wRC+ hitter. Say he finished his career around 120. That doesn't get you into the HoF as a 3B. But it likely does as a SS.
