    Just a thought:

    Could the Yankees' sudden public interest in Machado be a negotiating strategy to make Harper jealous and lower his asking price so he can play for his beloved Yankees and become the new Mickey Mantle?

    I think he wants to put as many of the Top 20 starting pitchers in all of MLB into the Yankee rotation as possible. The poster is obviously a fantasy league player.

    I doubt it. Boras is not one to let his client take a lower offer and I doubt that Harper would either.

    This is a good point. If Clint Frazier proves he's ML-ready and healthy then he could become the headliner in a 1/2yr Bumgarner deal if Miggie's too much to give up at that point. I'd hope the rebuilding Giants would still entertain an offer of Frazier and some ML-ready pitching prospects, something the Yankees are rich in (i/e Montgomery, Loaisiga, German, Adams, King).

    Let's say both end up the same asking price. I know Boras' is higher but just for fun who would we want on here?

    I would like Machado of course. But I wouldn't say no to Murphy. At least he can hit in the playoffs and doesn't come up small....

    Just not sure he's worth more than the 10yr/$300M contract waiting for him in Washington. Not sure if any team owner is sure either.

    Isn't it Cashman's job to try and sign him for less than he's asking for?

    Very tough call. I could make good arguments for either one, against either one, and against both of them altogether, and this team can be a WS contender regardless. Lots of good options if you have money to spend.

    If we can't get Machado, this is the best idea I've seen yet, then slide Torres back to SS.

    YES, definitely, but I still wanted two more. Paxton is one, but I'd like another one.

    I want three SP's I can matchup with any of the Bosox or Astros three and beat them.

    Sounds pretty bad to me actually, you'd have terrible defense at 3rd 2b and 1b with a shaky defensive shortstop, that would go down as the worst defensive infield in baseball history

    I think Paxton, Severino and Tanaka can matchup and beat either Boston or the Astros. I think Happ can beat either team too.

    If Cashman is really getting two more relievers as he keeps saying, we will be super deep there again and only need 5-6 innings at most in playoff games. Last year there were only 20 AL pitchers who had 150+ innings and an ERA of 3.76 or better, 5 of those 20 are next year's Yankee rotation.
