    • The Yankees have talked to Raul Ibanez about returning as a platoon DH, but according to the New York Post, those conversations have not included any sort of negotiation, and Ibanez would like to sign somewhere within “the next seven to 10 days.”

    • Short-term Yankees third baseman Casey McGehee has signed in Japan, where he’ll once again be a teammate of Andruw Jones. McGehee is going to make $1.5 million, and could add more with incentives.

    • Speaking of short-term Yankees third basemen: Cody Ransom has signed a minor league deal with Padres.

    • Rich Harden might have made sense on a low-risk contract to compete for a spot this spring, but he’s signed a minor league deal with the Twins.

    • Another second-tier pitcher is off the market. Francisco Liriano has agreed to a two-year deal with the Pirates.

    I'm ok with Bichette and Williams, but I really hate to lose Sanchez.

    Same here. Even though I think Bichette, Williams, Sanchez is a fair amount for Arizona to ask for I'm not sure I do that deal. Not with our current situation.

    If we keep trading away our best young prospects we'll never have a Juston Upton of our own. I like Sanchez too much to trade. At least for Upton.

    I like Williams and Sanchez. Bichette, eh.

    I don't think Upton is realistic for us... I think we'll end up with Hairston or someone like that, a FA. Even though Hairston wants to go back to the mets. I just don't see Cash doing anything now that it's almost January. 8 weeks and it's spring training time.

    I could see us being a 90 win team this season. We lose the offense of ARod, Swisher, and Martin. But we do gain a full season of Ichiro (For what it's worth), Youk, and Gardner being back.

    You know what, I'm sorry, but aside from Sanchez, Banuelos, and Austin, I don't give a flying **** who we trade from our farm system anymore.

    Remember the package of players Seattle originally wanted for King Felix? Betances, Banuelos, Montero, Nunez and I believe there was one more? Chamberlain? Yea, how did that work out?

    Mason Williams, Bichette Jr., and another prospect or two for Upton I will be more then fine with.

    People forget, Upton is just now entering his prime. Considering the position we are, with this stupid 189 mark (because we only make 650 million in revenue each year ), this is a good move, and I have changed my mind from previous times.

    I'd rather take my chances on a guy who we know has the ability to hit 30 homers, and Yankee Stadium sure as hell would help, then take a chance on prospects who have yet to prove anything. This is a move that changes our entire lineup. If the possibility is there, get it done Cashman!!!

    I honestly believe Youk gives us around the same offensive numbers that A-Rod gave us last season. (although he was injured)

    Gardner gives us one thing we desperately needed until Ichiro came along, speed on the basepaths.

    And there is no way in hell Romine hits for a worse average than Martin did. I'm not so sure how his power numbers will be, but I honestly believe we win 95 games again. Every year it seems like we find reasons were going to suck, but I think we all lose track of just how many superstars we still have on this team.

    Not even close. If he stays healthy I'm thrilled though.
