  1. Yankees now shifting their focus of the offseason to Manny Machado. Looking to get him on an 8-year deal. Machado wants 10. Around 8/260 is what I'd expect to be offered. Maybe not shifting their focus, its a very busy offseason for the Yankees but they'd like to have Machado in a Yankee uniform by the start of Spring Training 2019. I don't blame em!

    Yes, you don't want to be stuck overspending on free agents that you aren't that crazy about. Have to let teams know you're seriously interested so they don't go trade with someone else. They aren't just going to wait around for you. Yankees also want to add 2 SP, so 1 via trade and then look to sign Corbin is the ideal.

    Lookup Simonetti Source on Youtube and Twitter. He has been pretty reliable when it comes to Yankees news. Jack Curry has even gave him props publically on twitter. He's who I got this from and he's been right many times in the past. He doesn't reveal his sources, but he's said in the past it comes from "family." And its important to note that your Jon Heymans, Joel Shermans, etc. are not sources but just reporters who never really reveal where they're getting information. Jon Heyman especially I feel has fallen off in getting good info from sources. These guys just built a reputation from being right often and having jobs with YES, NY Post, MLBN, etc. to add to their credibility.

    I said they are slightly closer but there's "still a lot to do" for any deal to happen. Not exactly close but they have been progressing. From what I hear, they've agreed on the first player that the Yankees would send to the Tribe. They're working out what other players would be included.

    Yankees and Indians are slightly closer to making a trade that would send Carrasco to the Yankees. Still a lot to do.

    Yea Profar could play SS or 2B while Didi's out, depending on where they prefer Torres. Then when Didi returns, Profar could become the starting LF or just move all over as a super utility guy.

    CC averaged over 5 IP per start (29 starts) and had a 3.65 ERA. That's pretty solid for a 5th starter in the AL East. In comparison, JA Happ had a 3.65 ERA in 31 starts, averaging under 6 IP per start. Everyone wanted him back. And he'll be looking at a multi-year deal for more money.

    Yankees are interested in Jurickson Profar. Looking to do Gray for Profar but Rangers want aother prospect in the deal.
  9. There's no better offseason in any other sport. So much speculation.
  10. Segura isn't happening. Going into his age 29 season with 4-years left + 5th year team option or $1M buyout. He also has a reputation as somewhat of a clubhouse cancer.
  11. New York Yankees 2019 Outlook

    Exactly. He's going into his age 33 season. 2 years left that are guaranteed, + an option or buyout in the 3rd year. They want to get the best return while they can. They're also looking to give a guy like Ryan Merritt the opportunity to start. And Bieber is obviously in their plans. They have some other young guys with a lot of promise not too far away.
  12. CC returns with the Yankees for 2019. 1yr/8M

    Yankees are meeting with the Indians to discuss Kluber. Seeing what kind of deal it will take. Sounds like Kluber is more likely to be moved that Carrasco. Mariners also being sellers...Paxton?

    Voit is not going to hit .333/.405/.689 in 2019 but Yankees will give him the opportnity. Especially since having him at 1B will allow them to spend more in other areas of the team. If he fails miserably, then maybe Yankees get Edwin Encarnacion for a cheap rental.
  15. New York Yankees 2019 Outlook

    It sounds like CC will be back. They'll still be going for Corbin though.
