    "...1900 is now considered the beginning of the modern era in Major League Baseball, and today’s records are based on player statistics since that time."
    "The sport’s pre-modern era encompasses the first official game played in the United States
    (in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1846), along with the country’s first professional team,
    the Cincinnati Red Stockings (whose first season was 1869).
    Over the course of the sport’s first few decades, however, many of the games’ rules and regulations were in flux, including the distance of the pitcher’s mound from home plate.
    But by 1900 most of these rules had been codified, and with the founding of the American League and the playing of the first World Series a few years later, baseball became the national pastime we know today.

    Also ran across this article entitled Baseball Before 1900 Chronology: Some of it is pretty funny like the entry for 1861 Feb 04 for a game played on ice skates on a frozen pond. LOL:

    Based on the two years that he's had, I don't see LeMahieu staying on the cheap. And with that being the case, I sure hope that the Yankees don not play hardball with him but I suspect that they will.

    Even when the machine is having a bad day he still manages the game winning hit.

    Hes already given them two top-10 MVP level seasons for cheap. Time for the Cash Man to pay up.

    Totally agree, he can play 4 positions and has been the glue of the team for 2 seasons now!

    He is 32 years old...what are some guesses that he will sign for? I think a 4 year deal would be ideal...$75mil??? However he/agent will probably push for 5 or 6.
    Interested in what you guys think.

    I doubt anyone gives him 6. I'd think 4/75 is cheap. 5/100? 4/85?
    A fool and his money can throw one heck of a party!

    I would start at 5 years, $90 million and go from there. I don’t think something like 5/120 is out of the question.

    He went from a guy I didn’t really even want to one of my favorite guys on the team. Such a good signing.

    I think an interesting over/under is $100MM guaranteed.

    Barring any real or manufactured financial concerns for clubs related to the pandemic, I'd have EASILY taken the over on that coming off his last two seasons. I think barring teams that could use his talents being unable or unwilling to ante up at pre-COVID market rates, he'll clear that hurdle for sure. And the Yankees would be foolish to let him walk IMHO

    I agree, $100M is a good gauge. I'd be thrilled if the Yankees offer (and DJ accepts) 4yrs/$100M.

    Not sold on a 5th year, but it can be a bargaining tool to lower the AAV if necessary. Maybe 5yrs/$110M with an opt-out after 3 years?
