    I'd be against a multi-year deal no matter what the cost.
    I think the total amount of around 12M is right but definitely more guaranteed than 5M. I’d guess an 8-10M base plus incentives.

    This is promising. Medina seems to be harnessing his stuff. Try to move him in a package for Castillo

    I like him. He would've been a solid 4th OF in his prime for the Yankees' best seasons. But no. He shouldn't be afforded some prolonged goodbye tour. It just seems off.

    He got to see Ruth play? Man that would be an incredible, in-awe event to witness! The A's were around back then?

    Yeah Medina is starting to get more attention. IMO, I'd give up both Garcia and Dominguez for Castillo before I'd include Medina in any deal.

    I got an alert on my phone this morning from the Athletic that they are acquiring Kyle Hendricks, and then it disappeared. I haven’t seen this reported anywhere. Did anyone hear or see anything?

    Evan Daniel posted it as a hypothetical on Twitter last night, and apparently, some in the media ran with it before, you know, making sure it actually happened.

    Don't understand how Cashman starts the offseason recognizing the need for balance in the lineup and stability in the rotation and then puts his feet up after attempting to low-ball a 32 year old middle infielder. Lindor and Carrasco >> than a deal for DJ. And it's looking unlikely we'll get a "deal" for DJ when a relief pitcher just got 3/54.

  18. #4618

    Re: 2020-2021 Hot Stove Thread

    And it's some real Art of the Deal nonsense to rule out an option in Lindor that competed directly with the party they're negotiating against.

    That would be a steal for NY. Can't imagine the Cubs agreeing to that trade.

    I don't understand the somewhat popular take that the Yankees are somehow 'winning' the offseason by not making any moves while other teams in the division get weaker...are we ignoring the fact that the yankees are also a weaker team than they were at the end of last season? It also bothers me that this seems to imply that the Yankees' goal is simply winning the division...I wish our sights were set a little higher than that.

    I just edited my post. I thought he was over his injury, he is not. Yes, it's Tanaka for me. OK he is not a #2 but we only have 10-15M. I don't know Richards but I like Sugano. I am so disgusted with Paxton that he was ready last year this may be the same issue with Kluber. Remember how many posters what Kluber last time. Well, that didn't work out for Texas. I still hope Sevy will be our #2 but think back to the worst of worst for me was praying for Pavano. We need a dependable SP. PS my favorite pitch is the cutter (Hughes had a decent one).

    Kluber will get offers, (he was great) Brian loves bargains, Cressey, our pitching coaches failed Ottavino and Monty didn't do as well so I am not confident we improved. Unless it's money you can write off the AAV nope

    thanks for the reply

    At least he got to see those great Giants teams of the early 1920s.

    Wow! That's great. I would have been 6 years old so a little too young to go to the WS, lol. I always wished my father had taken me to Ebbetts Field but he was a Yankees fan living in Brooklyn.

    Not sure how popular that take is, but I too have seen references to not needing to make major moves because other AL East teams might have gotten weaker. Not only is that factually debatable, it's a horrible strategy.
