    Unless we're getting Tatis or Gore, which we're not, nah.

    I really don’t see the need to trade Andujar. Even if Manny was a Yankee

    Merry Christmas Yankee brethren. Hopefully we ring in the New Year with Machado.

    River Ave Blues has a great article about Yankees payroll, and how it’s minuscule compared to what it was in the past.

    http://riveraveblues.com/2018/12/yankees-can-afford-sign-bryce-harper-manny-machado-182396/

    If we could get rid of Sonny for prospects + cheap role guys. And find somebody or anybody to take Ellsbury and a couple long shot prospects for basically 2 years $20mil (we’d pay $11mil this year and $11mil next year and pay the $5mil buyout)

    You clear $18-$20mil off the payroll.

    There should be no reason that we don’t make SMART investments with good length of contract structured with it.

    Whatever.

    Minimum contracts can't hurt & I guess there's some upside.

    I hope it’s not a stop gap before Didi gets back and we don’t sign Manny because we’re penny pinching. Manny unfollowed YES

    Tulo has nothing to do with Manny.

    They went for a guy for minimum deal that if he can get healthy can contribute.

    Rosenthal tweeted that we’re progressing toward a deal with Britton and should be announced soon.


    Severino/Tanaka/Paxton/Happ/CC
    Green/Holder/Britton/Betances/Chapman
    Sanchez/Romine
    Voit or Bird / Torres / Andujar / Tulo
    Gardner / Hicks / Judge / Stanton

    5 more spots left
    Cessa, Loaisiga, German, Kahnle
    Wade, Frazier, Ellsbury

    All guys with shots at the opening day roster.

    Need Ottavino, too.

    Our 'super bullpen' isn't that super right now.

    It’s still a top 5 bullpen.

    But yeah I’d go Ottavino and if there’s no SP trade then go between Kahnle and a young guy starter all season as final pitching spot all year.
