    While it isn't being reported this way yet, I talked to a buddy that played for the Giants and stayed in their front office.

    He told me a couple weeks ago, he said they felt that they had about 75% chance to sign Judge. He sent me a message tonight that they feel 100% that Judge is going back to the Yankees. Judges people told him that any offer they gave Judge, he wouldn't sign it until Hal has a chance.

    I've heard from way to many people that Judge is going to give Hal the last chance and Hal is deadest on not losing him. Hal has been far more involved with the Judge talks than I've ever recall him being and I'll be very very surprised if Judge isn't our captain by the winter meetings

    Man this is ugly. Nimmo is far and away the best option, but I wouldn't touch him with his injury issues for the salary he is projected at. Benintendi likely gets well overpaid as well. I'd probably just roll with Peralta or Cabrera to start the year out of this list.

    Here's my ranking
    1. Brandon Nimmo
    2. Andrew Benintendi
    3. Masataka Yoshida
    4. Roll with Oswaldo
    After that, NO to all.

    The reason I put this post here is to show how few viable options there are in left field. With Benintendi's asking price looking high, and Nimmo most likely wanting to play CF and staying with the Mets, Yoshida may end up being the best value though

    I agree with this, though I would certainly consider signing Brantley on an incentive laden contract with an option. Brantley is a career .298 hitter who puts the ball in play and seldom K's. In fact, his walks almost equal his K's. He'd be a great influence on these free swingers. He's 35 years old (but his stats didn't diminish) and was injured after 64 games and had labrum surgery on his right shoulder, but since he's a LH thrower (and hitter), hopefully, it would not affect is ability to play Left Field. I'm not sure how close he comes back to the beginning of the season, hence the incentive contract. Plus for a lifetime .298 hitter, he only made $6.5 million last year. He might be worth something like a $2 million contract with incentives and an $8 million option for next year with a $2 million buyout.

    My first choice would be to trade for Reynolds, if we can get him without giving up our top 3 prospects, but if that is not possible before the year begins, I would prefer someone on a short term deal. Nimmo doesn't do it and Benni at 6 years doesn't do it. Assuming we keep Dom and Jones, we might as well have a spot for them long-term.

    I echo Eagles sentiment. Yikes, the pickins are slim

    Beni. (But not at 6 for 120. 4 for 75? Yes!)
    Ninmo.
    Brantley
    Hicks
    Cabrera
    Yoshida
    Kiermaier
    Peralta
    Pollack
    Duval


    I think the most likely situation we see is a return of Hicks or Brantley, Cabrera and Stanton, sharing the job

    Beside him setting the Japanize HR record, he also screwed around and won their triple crown and the MVP. 76% of his hit's last yr went for extra bases. WOW

    Our core could very well be Murikami, Volpe, Peraza, Dom, Arias and Jones. Judge would be the veteran leader and he would be surrounded by younger, high ceiling players. I'd be more than pleased with the group of players
    Yes please. It just blows we have to wait a year.

    The meeting changes nothing with the Yankees chances. There is a 0-100% chance he signs here.

    Because you, nor I, nor any one person other than Judge(outside of his wife/parents), has any idea of what will actually happen.

    So kindly take your negatives vibes and **** right off.

    If the money is close I'd take Nimmo over Benny, but after that Yuck

    After looking at that it almost makes u think Hicks wouldn't be the worst option

    1 Nimmo
    2 Benny
    3 Brantley 1yr deal and hope Dom starts the way he finished ?
    4 Cabrera
    5 Hicks

    Everyone does realize the very best FA option hasn't been listed, right? Gallo LOL
