I don't think theirs a chance in hell Cashman gives up Torres and probably not Florial or Sheff. I'd be fine with trading pretty much anyone else especially to keep him away from the Astros
    thanks I hope it works and we get this potential stud without giving up to much

    then p/u a low salary 1B/3B type and i'm good togo

    If you want to go on an expensive vacation and you can afford it and you'd prefer to leave on Sunday, but it will cost you $10,000, but if you leave Saturday night (airfare is cheaper with a Saturday night stay) and it costs you only $5,000, do you leave on Sunday because that is your preference or go on Saturday night, even if you need to stay at an airport hotel for $200 when the plane arrives at 11 PM. After all, it's only money and you can afford the extra $5,000.

    Moral of the story is the Yankees don't like to pay double what everyone else does either. If they go over the luxury tax this year, then they stay at 50% tax. Then if they sign Harper and go $40 million over the tax, they pay an extra 42% for being over it 3 or more years. Then their draft pick drops 10 spots. They've already paid over $300 million in luxury tax since it has been in effect. So, it would be foolish to go over for anything other than a near guaranteed World Series title.

    I donít want Cole to hurt the Yankees, so he better be traded in the NL and not an AL foe. Donít want him here either.

    geogre would have agreed

    heck hal probably does too

    question is does his pride get in the way

    after saying more than once '' a team doesn't need to go over the tax line to win ''

    he's going to take a beating from some

    then again he probably will either way

    personally I think he's been great and can respect his goal of

    staying under ( for 1 yr) while putting a pretty good team out there

    when they say '' you never have enough pitching '' they are right

    I donít agree that the Yankees are going for it this year..

    The Yankees are going for it every year for the foreseeable future. Already contenders with or without additions. We have zero ďneedĒ to overpay for anything. Sick offense, great pen, strong starters, great farm, youth. Monsters that arenít even in their prime yet.

    If Cashman and the FO continue to play this right, sky is the limit. Just imagine if Torres is even half the player everyone thinks he is. Or if one more of our pitchers pans out..The league is scared right now

    Can someone please change the name of this thread? In case something changes with the Astros, this could be a title for a future thread, but it's clear this is no longer the case and may cause confusion.
