    People need to stop talking about a new "young core."

    Yankees need to sign proven talent....and that will come with a price.

    That super talented core of team controlled, Cooperstown bound, prospects does not exist.

    There will be an opportunity cost for free agents, that is the reality of free agency.

    Exactly . Only rebuilding teams keep spending years and years on “ new cores “ . Teams that are win now are supposed to build to win NOW.

    Why would’t it have Freeman getting more chances with the bat?

    Analytics has ruined MLB!

    I miss the typical 1970s-1990s lineups.

    Why we didn't sign Brantley, when he wanted to come here last winter i'll never understand. High contact, High avg, good power. One of the better LHed hitter in baseball over the last 5 + yrs

    Not to my recollection, it was because they couldn't sign him and stay under 210m

    I do get your point, how ever with very good talent costing 18-25M AAV and superstar level talent costing 30m plus for 10yrs, you simply can't build a team that way anymore.

    Seager and Correa are looking for a minimum of 10yrs 300m and in Correa's case he's looking for a Lindor type deal closer to 12yrs 350m. We have Cole, Stanton and DJ signed long term to large long deals, they are going to resign Judge who will get 7yr 210m minimum and is you sign one of the SS that a ton of money locked up very long term. If u have 5guys costing u close to 140M a yr, u have to fill out the other 35 spots for about 70m combined to stay around the current LT threshold.

    In this day and age you can't sigh a bunch of big long term deals and hope to stay competitive towards the end of those deals. Having a quality spec pipeline is invaluable to a team like the Yanks. The best teams build from with in and supplement with FA and trades.

    If they go with one of those SS, then they will go cheap on the mound, 1st base and any other position they need to upgrade.

    We don't have a legit 1st base spec that could take over anytime soon. We don't have a ready TORP waiting in the minors, we have so see what they do at the MLB level. On the other hand 2 of our top 3 specs are SS and in Peraza's case finished the yr in AAA. Peraza is a legit top 50 spec. It's obviously not my call but how many 10yr plus deals have worked out well for the teams that signed those players?

    RHP Charlie Morton underwent X-rays tonight that revealed a right fibula fracture. He will miss the remainder of the World Series and is expected to be ready for Spring Training in 2022.

    What a brutal loss for the Braves.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Charlie Morton threw 10 pitches on a broken leg, sat down for a half-inning, threw six more pitches, the last two of which were a 96-mph fastball and 80-mph curveball to strike out Jose Altuve.

    So, yeah, Charlie Morton threw 16 pitches pushing off the mound with a broken leg.

    What a boss.
