Interesting rumor. Not sure about getting Cueto. Doesn't help the pitching until late in the season provided the arm is healthy.

Its good if Cashman is talking ot the Giants. Maybe some one else besides Cueto emerges.

The Yanks may need pitching help (again) in 2020 with CC retiring and Tananka a pitch away from Tommy John himself. At this rate, I would take a just about anything to get rid of Ellsbury.

Have to really be impressed with the level of ineptitude from the Marlins. Joel Sherman made an excellent point - a few months ago, there was talk about a 3-team trade that involved Thor, G Sanchez and Andujar with Realmuto going to the Mets. They somehow went from that to accepting an offer that netted them a SP with durability concerns and no real secondary pitches and a AAAA catcher.

"I thank the Good Lord for not making me a Marlins fan," - Joe DiMaggio, probably.

And out of left field, there's a rumor circulating that the Yankees have offered Machado $220 Million; but the duration of the offer and any opt-outs are not known. If this is true and Manny takes it, they Yanks are not done making deals as they would have a logjam at 3B or 1B (assuming their long-term plan is not to play Machado at SS), depending what the Yanks see as the future for Andujar.

It’s too much of a discount to not consider.

Agree. A 7 or 8 year deal with a higher AAV makes sense for the club. Doesn't seem like anyone is willing to do a decade contract for either Manny or Harper. If the offers are all in the 7/8 year range, it'll come down to where Harper/Manny want to play, not where whoever offers the most dollars. Of course, if Philadelphia or the White Sox give in and offer 10 years, they'll sign there.

I think teams want value for each season signed. Why pay a guy 22 million in year 6 if you project 22 homers and 80 rbi? That is probably, by today's measures, a 14 million value.

Thanks Albert Pujols.
