Imagine if they get Gerrit Cole next season! What's his contract going to look like? i'll say 7/170  

the 7 seems right, but i think hell get more like 26-28 mil per year if he matches last years numbers

He gave up assets for Paxton. Valuable ones. Could've gotten Corbin for just $. That's the key difference.

And if you don't think adding Bryce Harper would've made them a better team, I really don't know what to say.

Corbin was the first major player to sign.  There didn't seem to be any bidding war to join in.  He made his choice quickly and signed where he wanted to sign.

Cole's market is impossible for me to judge. Greinke / Price were in no position to get more if Cole repeats last year, but I also see a lot more teams being wary to pony up the money Greinke / Price got. 7 / 230 should be more the right range if he repeats last year. He was on another planet.

ya i was gauging him against corbin, not price or greinke.  7 years at 30 mil a year is 210 right?  so id say in that 190-210 range.  dont think he passes greinke though.  i think market changed.

In my opinion no GM should sign any pitcher to anything over 5 years...

Yanks had him in for a visit. They weren’t willing to go beyond 4 years, IIRC. It was a poor decision. 

 

Btw, he wanted to be a Yankee. He’s from NY and made no secret about wanting to play there leading up to his free agency.

would you give sale 7 years 32-34 mil per next year?

 

Sale probably not but it is difficult. TBH, I did a lot of thought to what I'd give guys this offseason but I havne't projected the next class. Sale has many many more innings than Cole. But situation is paramount.

ya, tbh if cole has another year like last id prefer cole as well.he may aim for something like a 8 or 9 yr deal.  id give him 7 with some big AAV (cole) in that 28 mil range

How much longer does Brett Gardner get a look at lead off? Ever look at his post season stats? .202/.252 life time? Wow... 

I think the Yankees had like 4 hits last night and Gardner had 2 of them.  He went 2 for 4 with a HR.  That's going to buy him some more time until at least Hicks gets back.  Post-season stats are generally a rather insignificant sample size.

Hopefully Wade can hit this time up.  Really pulling for him.  I want to see him play regularly.  Frazier I don't really care for but if he hits that'll change things.  Tauchman I wonder if he'll breakout like the Yankees envisioned.

I've been talking bad about Gardner for a while but he saved me last night (had Yanks -1.5, LOL).  I think once Hicks comes back, he'll go down to the bottom third of the order.

me too

 

tbh, yanks are killed with injuries.  luckily, their april schedule is weak except for 3 @ houston and 2 vs boston.  if they can just play 500 ball, or maybe a game or 2 over 500 in april they should be fine

 

they should get hicks, stanton, betances, cc, severino back in early may. DJLem signing is looking really good right now.

Can Nick Castellanos play 3B anymore?  Tigs looked to trade him in the off-season and could use prospects in return for him. 

 

this crossed my mind too.  not sure the answer though.
