    With the news that DJ is likely going to avoid surgery, the Yankees have been more aggressive in shopping their MINF. AZ has interest in IKF and Torres.

    Yankees really like McCarthy and that he'll play next yr at 25. I'm told that if the Yanks are able to complete the signing of Rodon, they will look to the trade market for LF. Pereira, Schmidt and IKF is a proposed package for McCarthy. AZ is also looking for MILB level MINF, which we have tons of.

    Reynolds market is flooded and very expensive. To get him right now it would take 2 of our top 3 and the Yankees aren't interested in that at this time. Dodgers and Marlins seem to be the 2 most aggressive teams

    Yankees have interest in Happ and Cubs like Torres. Packages would include other players.

    Right now Yankees top priority right now is upgrading the rotation. They Yankees want Rodon, Rodon want to be a Yankee.. based on what i'm told we're they heavy favorite, but it doesn't sound like the Yanks want to go 6-7 yrs. They want to be 5 yrs, with an option. He's unlikely to take less to play here.

    Hicks market still is Washington/ Colorado, but it's seen as something that will get done after the big priorities.

    Yankees are still in the market of a LHRP

    getting rodon will be more important for the yanks then getting a hitter for one simple reason the shift is gone batting averages will skyrocket.. you will need more starting quality pitching..

    I was commenting on the comment that the Yanks opening day lineup would be the same as last year. Don't move the goal post on me. And Bader wasn't an active part of the July/August collapse. He actually started playing in mid-September, about the time Yankees righted the ship.

    Yeah, hopefully Judge is at least still hitting then. My point is, imagine Peraza, Volpe, and whoever becoming all stars 3 years from now. Wouldn’t it be nice to add premier free agent in his prime rather than surrounding them with a 37 year old Stanton and a 34 year old Judge? Do we think those guys stay healthy and productive then? It’s a lot to ask of aging giants.

    Wasn’t trying to move the goal posts on ya. Just saying that even with Bader playing better than he ever has before in the playoffs, the Yankees still got swept. The Yankees need more offense. A lot of people seem to be putting a lot of faith in these guys when pretty much all the hitters that will be relied on are over 30. That means regression is significantly more likely than them getting better. The Yankees need to retool this lineup big time.

    Ah yes, that makes more sense. I think the Yankees probably like Rodon because he’s really freakin good more than anything. Yankees love high K pitchers with low walk rates.

    Yankees view Rodon as a " bulldog" type ace. Love that they would be able to change up pitching styles and having the ability to change what hitters are seeing game to game in a playoff series. They also view him as insurance if Cole opts our after 24
    1 Cole is dominate, power RH pitcher
    2 Rendon is similar from the LH side
    3 Sevy is a power RH pitcher but his sequencing makes him a way different look than Cole
    4 Nestor gives you a completely different look/ velo from the LH side
    5 Montas is more of a north/south pitcher that throws hard . The Yankees are expecting to see the healthy version of Montas and still believe in that trade. He was said to be extremely distracted when we got him because of losing the woman that raised him from an early age in July. He was act actually on leave from the A's when we traded for him.. Stupid time to trade for him, but that's on Cashman, not him

    I agree with the people who are saying the Yankees can't be done here. If they are, they will be worse than last year. They need a leftfielder who can make contact, preferably a lefty. Dumping Hicks and Donaldson should be priority number two. Priority number three should be replacing Donaldson with a viable option. I'd be fine with keeping Torres and using DJL over there personally, but if Torres has to be traded to get the LF they'll still need a 2b or 3b. I still say the lowest priority item is the starting pitcher.

    On the other hand if they can sign Rodon and still get their LF and still improve at 3b I don't care how they do it.

    Lol. That's pretty funny
    Wasn't Montas an Astros killer?

    I love Rodoh's stuff. I am just terrified of injuries with him.

    Yanks out on Correa who is looking for a big, longer deal than Xander and Turner got.

    I know most won't look at it this way, but Judge signing for 9yrs, was kinda a favorable out come for us.

    The Rodon market has thinned alot in the last 24hrs. LAD are more looking for a RH starter and they won't go past 4yrs. Padres are out after Xander. Giants seem focused on Correa. Mets want Senga or at least they aren't looking to spend another 30m AAV on pitching. Rangers are very much still in. Rodon wants to win now and if he wasn't a Boras guy, this would be done. He's trying to get every dime possible
