    Of this list - who's under contract for next year? Betances, Torres and Sheffield? Is Frazier under contract?

    No, Frazier is a free agent as is Pineda.

    • Todd Frazier - I think they'll consider it, esp if they somehow have an opportunity to move Headley, but ultimately they'll pass. Combo of him getting a multi-year offer somewhere and Cash not wanting to block 3B-1B too much for Andujar/Gleyber/etc. Plus he has a career .321 OBP and his power has diminished post-30.
    • Dellin Betances - Not going anywhere
    • CC Sabathia - 1 year deal
    • Matt Holiday - He gone
    • Michael Pineda - Big Mike likely gone
    • Cha(nc)se Adams - Def makes his debut in 2018, hopefully has a Monty type impact and shows he can be a long term piece.
    • Gleyber Torres - Starts year at SWB and works his way up
    • Justus Sheffield - Might push the issue but I wouldn't expect anything more than a spot start. Solid AzFL might change the calculus.

    I think there is a chance to trade Starlin Castro to open 2B for Torres and get something good in return for Castro.

    I think we keep Headley - he's good as a 3B/1B/DH switch-hitter and a potential trade chip in July for a team that needs him as a rental.

    I believe some team will pay about $10 million a year for Ellsbury so we only have to eat the balance and we need the open roster spot for younger up and coming outfielders. And, that $10 million will help us to stay under the salary CAP.

    I don't expect to see Holliday, Frazier or Ellsbury on the 2018 Roster even though they all contributed in some way this season.

    Yea as good as Castro has been, he doesn't fit into long term plan. Can you imagine an infield of:

    C Sanchez
    1B Bird
    2B Torres
    3B Andujlar
    SS Didi
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    I'm going to shut this thread down. There is a Hot Stove thread over in Inside the Lines. Please post there. Thanks.
