    I'd take the latter.

    2019 (last full season) revenue: $683 million
    Current franchise worth: $7 billion

    They're making more money and not spending it. No fan should give them another dollar
    Hell no, we won't go!

    Not saying it isn't risky at all. But it has significant less risk than Cole's contract IMO.

    I can agree with that.

    I'd take the guy who has been the best and most consistent pitcher the last decade and coming off a healthy season. Verlander is old, coming off a major injury, and hasn't pitched in a long time. Scherzer just has the old part.

    we should have saw this last year when the yanks stayed under the luxury tax most of thought it was so the yanks could reset the tax. no one thought it was because hal has become a skinflint.

    Cashman is doing an absolutely amazing job.

    Between Semien, Ray, and Seager, Cash has saved the Yankees $615MM!!

    That is basically the equivalent of winning the ALCS.

    If we pass on Correa now and can get that # near $1 Billion, it is basically like we are Champions.

    And with Stallings going to the Marlins with Ray, we definitely dodged a bullet there.

It is simply about telling the average fan about the reality of what actually happened on the field. The “Holy Trinity” of baseball statistics fail at this most basic task, and so they are not worth deifying any longer. - Dave Cameron

    Surely the 43m aav could be better spent elsewhere. Crazy crazy numbers. Their payroll now crazy and they as a team are still a bit far away from winning.

    Where? On who?

    This is a 4th place team with an ownership that lacks the courage to declare we are in a tear-down because the "Baby Bombers," failed.

    But make no mistake. We are in full tear down mode. We are not augmenting the infield, we are not even in the conversation for Robbie Ray, or Stallings, or Seager, or anyone....

    The Yankees are getting Rizzo and Simmons and running it back.

    I'd rather avoid that third year and the massive AAV. $50MM to $130MM is a very significant difference. Let's also not forget how dominant Verlander had been prior to the major injury. Dude won the Cy Young his last full season.

    Ray signed with Seattle.
