    Will be interesting to see how Yankees stay under 189 Luxury Tax, Pay A-Roid 114 Million (next five years) & A. J. Burnett 10 MILLION next year. then put a championship team on the field.

    Yankees Offseason

    1. Let Swisher, Ichiro, Ibanez, Jones, Garcia, Chavez, Lowe and Martin go. We need to change the direction of this team and it starts by getting younger.
    2. Bring back Pettite and Kuroda for the right price, if not let them go.
    3. Give Cano his money.
    4. Sign Brandon McCarthy.
    5. Trade Hughes, Man-Ban, Gardner, and a mid-level prospect for Justin Upton.
    6. Trade Nova, Betantes and mid-level prospect for Salvador Perez.
    7. Sign Michael Bourn.
    8. Trade Eduardo Nunez, David Phelps for Howie Kendrick.
    9. Sign Paul Maholm.

    1. Michael Bourn LF
    2. Derek Jeter SS
    3. Robinson Cano 2B
    4. Justin Upton RF
    5. Curtis Granderson CF
    6. Mark Teixeira 1B
    7. Alex Rodriguez DH
    8. Howie Kendrick 3B
    9. Salvador Perez C

    SP- CC
    SP- Kuroda
    SP- Pettite
    SP- McCarthy
    SP- Paul Maholm/Michael Pineda

    Bullpen:
    Keep in tact but let Soriano walk to much $.

    These moves keep payroll about the same as it is right now. Our lineup becomes younger and more dynamic. Now we have more speed and average with the additions of Bourn, Upton and Kendrick. Perez is a good young catcher Im still not sure that Nova and Betantes is enough. As far as the starting and relief pitching goes it stays pretty much the same.

Perez is a good young catcher Im still not sure that Nova and Betantes is enough. As far as the starting and relief pitching goes it stays pretty much the same.
    Bourn = overpriced version of Gardner. I'd rather get a power-hitting outfielder. Someone like Upton or Hamilton. Also, no way that the Royals give up Perez, he's their catcher of the future. Also, I think that's overpaying for Kendrick, I think Nunez can be just as good.

    Nunez definitely does have some decent trade value as a shortstop, his bat and speed are both pluses for that spot, the only issue is his arm, but that can be fixed. Also, he's young, still pre-arb (if I remember correctly) and cheap. He's one of our best trade chips.

    Anyways, because I don't feel like studying for midterms, here's my somewhat realistic, somewhat fantasy overhaul of the Yankees.

    1) GONE: Swisher (qualifying offer), Soriano (qualifying offer), Ibanez, Ichiro, Jones, Chavez, Lowe, Garcia

    2) Re-Sign: Kuroda (one or two years), Pettitte (one), Mariano (one with a player option), Martin (two years cheap), Stewart (one year)

    3) Free Agent Signings: Joakim Soria (one year with a club option), Zach Greinke(give him what we offered Lee), then a few minor league scrap-heap starters

    4) Trades
    Trade 1: Granderson, Betances, and Ramon Flores to the Rangers for Elvis Andrus (move Cano to third, Andrus to second)

    Trade 2: Nova and prospects to the Cardinals for Jon Jay

    Trade 3: A-Rod and some fillers to the Angels for Bourjos

    Trade 4: Hughes, Bourjos, Gumbs, Zolio Almonte to Washington for Rendon, Tyler Moore

    Trade 5: Rendon, Nunez, Adams to Arizona for Upton, Brad Ziegler

    2013 Lineup:
    Andrus, 2B, S
    Jeter, SS, R
    Cano, 3B, L
    Upton, RF, R
    Teixeira, 1B, S
    Jay, CF, L
    Martin, C, R
    Revolving DH spot (Mustelier, Moore, etc.)
    Gardner, LF, L

    Bench:
    Stewart/Cervelli, C
    Moore 1B/OF
    Adonis Garcia, OF/2B
    Mustelier, 3B/OF
    Nix, INF

    Total position players: 13

    Rotation:
    RHP Zack Greinke
    LHP CC Sabathia
    RHP Hiroki Kuroda
    LHP Andy Pettitte
    RHP David Phelps (possibly replaced by Pineda in June, giving us an insane rotation)

    Bullpen:
    Closer: Mariano
    Setup: Robertson
    Setup: Soria
    RHP: Ziegler
    RHP: Joba
    LHP: Rapada
    LHP: Logan
    Long: Adam Warren

    Greinke's signing might be superfluous, but I think it would be worth it. I think he's one of the top five starters in all of baseball. Also, none of this is going to happen, but I can dream, right?
    O-H-I-O!

    Welcome home, Urban

    In what way would that trade benefit the Marlins moving forward?

    ^Miami has a new stadium and need to build a larger fan base by attracting big names i.e. Cano and A-Rod

    Giancarlo Stanton isn't capable of doing that himself? I would much prefer watching a 22 year old stud on the rise rather than a regressing third baseman and a second baseman that is demanding a long term contract.

    Not only that, it is much more cost effective for the Marlins to not deal a stud like Stanton.

    Why would the next best young outfielder after Trouter be traded period? They have him under control for the next 5 years or so. A-Rod's contract is an albatross, and they would only control Cano for 1 year and then lose him to free agency. How would that benefit Miami?

    2. Again why would cash strapped KC trade a good young prospect for somebody like Hughes whose contract they wont control after another year? Nunez is clearly not a third baseman, nor an upgrade.

    3. Betances? Really? After this season why would Theo do Cashman that favor?

    Come on man, think these proposals through.
