    But you don't know that a "marginal increase" would have landed the player.

    What was the most the Red Sox were prepared to pay had the Yankees increased their offer? Nobody knows.

    Let's...

    So, if Moncada cost the Red Sox 63M, he has to roughly produce a WAR for them of 10.0 for them to break even, if we get lazy and assume that the cost to buy a 1.0 WAR player is about 6.3M. Maybe...

    The penalties are harsher for PED usage because it affects the game, the standings, wins/losses, etc., as well as the user.

    So McDaniel is critical of the Yankees but then says:



    Didn't the Yankees do what a team that is "run well and efficiently" would do?

    Clearly, the Yankees decided what Moncada was worth to...

    Lots of guys will use him as an agent regardless of what happens with A-Rod because (a) he gets guys lots of money, and (b) everyone hates A-Rod.

    Boras has already been uncooperative. The...

    He's already 35. The contract runs 7 more seasons, during which he's owed 24M, 25M, 26M, 27M, 28M, 29M, and 30M. A-Rod's deal declines as he gets older, Albert's deal increases.

    Yeah, Brendan Ryan hardly adds much against LHP. Might as well let Didi take his lumps.

    We've developed other guys developed since the 90s who may not have been top 100 but have had varying degrees of success, although a lot of them found success after we traded them. Melky Cabrera,...

    I expect more than 5 HR. He hit 6 in just 270 AB last year. Double the ABs and shorten the RF fence. I expect .250 BA and 12 HR. He's not a base stealer, so I won't even guess at that.

    He has to be careful about pushing Boras into testifying. Scott may give testimony favorable to the Yankees. Payback's a you know what.

    No, but I had to think about it.

    The money owed Pujols is about the same as is owed to the other three combined - it's just spread out over a longer period of time. I think we will probably get...

    You're assuming that had we offered 4.5M more than we did, the Red Sox would have not have increased their offer and he would have been ours. Not sure that's a fair assumption.

    Their offense was #18 last year in terms of runs scored. Sandoval and Hanley will have to be awfully good for their offense to carry them to the playoffs.

    All true. Nothing is guaranteed with Moncada either. Although the scouts rave about him, no scout has seen him try to hit MLB caliber pitching yet because he hasn't had to. He may be the next Mike...

    It really is an up in the air division. The team that finds a way to win 90 may end up the champion.
