We say that, but dude got paid with a bunch of opt outs. I just don't think anyone wanted to pay him for 8 years.

And then he went on to have a career year and win the world series with a great postseason.

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops.

Things I'd like to see the Yanks do, outside of major FA acquisitions:

Resign Robertson.
Resign Hechvarria for a year. With Didi out they'll need someone to super utility if Gleyber winds up playing short.
Resign Walker. Can play second until Didi gets back, and is fallback if Beefy Lad AL regresses.
Opt out of Gardner and try to sign him to a lower AAV as a fourth OF/trade chip if they get Harper.
Resign Happ.
Resign CC for a year.
Invent a time machine and don't sign Ellsbury.

Yea, I think Machado fits the Cubs needs right now more than Harper, and I think Harper is going to be way more than Machado too. Do not resign Murphy, for the love of god. Is Russel officially shipped off to the moon, or is he still on the team?

There's only one player in the sport right now who I would believe could reliably play up to a $40M AAV for the better part of the next ten years, and that's Trout. Even then though, you run into the Angels' problem where you're paying Trout so goddamn much you've lost a lot of the financial flexibility required to build a team around him.

The rumor is Harper considers bidding to start at 10/350, which yikes.

That rumor was a made up number out of thin air from a guy on a Yankees fanblog, which then got picked up by some B-tier website that reported it as a fact. It's literally fake news.

The Angles also have to pay Pujols which doesnt help either

OTOH, if you are the Phillies and are paying nobody rigjt now, you can pay Harper his 400 mil and still have enough room to add a few more guys

Hell no. Walker could have probably been fine if he played every day last year, but we saw what happened when he didn't, and he won't play every day in 2019 either. If the Yankees can't beat his numbers with an internal option they're hosed.

Your logic confuses me. I mostly agree that he's preferable as a starter than a utility guy but I thought the idea was that with DiDi gone he WOULD be the 2B starter with Torres moving to SS?

If nothing else I rather do that then go for Machado. Which is what I'm most "afraid" of this winter.

Oh, yeah I guess I assume they're going to keep Torres at 2B and plug SS rather than move him and plug 2B, which is probably dumb because a good SS is harder to find.
