The Yankees had better re-sign DJ "DJ" LeMahieu or I will be sad.

EDIT: And trade Gary Sanchez for pitching.

EDIT 2: If anyone will take him.

Gary legit might get non tendered...

Yankees priorities, by Assistant Vice President of Baseball General Management Operations, Bathroom Cleanliness, and Microwaves Well Played Mauer:

Sign DJLM.
Sign Realmuto. Between DJ, JA Happ, and JT, we can corner the market on two letter first name players.
Keep Gary around. If he looks great in spring training, trade him for an SP rental you have a decent chance of extending. If he sucks, well, thatís why you have Realmuto and Higashioka.
Sign Bauer but make him wear one of those gimp masks so he canít talk to anyone.
Go get Stroman or Quintana I dunno man itís just money.

I donít know which of these are serious and which arenít anymore.

They aren't going to pay Realmuto or Bauer. They are already talking about how much money they are losing this season. Wouldn't you rather have Tanaka back then Quintana or Stroman? They are both pretty meh IMO.

I'm pretty sure a lot of those were converted down for the shortened season, but Happ didn't reach it

Edit: Yeah they did https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/07/mlb-mlbpa-reach-deal-on-vesting-options-roster-bonuses-other-issues.html

He didn't reach it because they manipulated his starts so he didn't. Shady AF.

glad to see the Mets toxic ownership about to be replaced by a hopefully-not-quite-as-toxic one

all of our FAs are gone with the possible exception of Stroman

I think they'll buy Ramos out for $1.5M rather than giving him $10M for his age-34 season, and I assume Betances is going to invoke his player option for $6.8M rather than test the market

we really, really need pitching so I'd expect Cohen to make a strong effort towards retaining Stroman and probably also go after a high-upside FA like Walker or Paxton (please not Bauer though)

Why don't you want the best pitcher in the league? Cause he's a dipshit on twitter? meh

He is not the best pitcher in the league lol. I’m not gonna argue with you but we can revisit that claim after this season.
He was this year.

Strasburgs UCL posted:

Bauer has had one full season with an ERA under 4 and is a big enough rear end in a top hat that he has been traded in part because of it more than once. He also has all these crazy ideas about starting every game on one less day of rest and doing a one year contract every year. Just absolutely loaded with red flags.

Teams should love his 1 year deal thing.

deGrom was better than Bauer in every way that's not based on a .215 BABIP

Yeah I think this is a fine point. So he was the 2nd best pitcher in the league. He's still a guy you should want on your team. Especially on a 1 year deal. It's a no brainer.

This doesn't make much sense. If they are going for a D first catcher, Higgy seems fine for that role.

I mean, if they acquire Lindor then itís fine to let him walk. To let him walk without a plan would be pretty bad

The idea of giving up a ton of assets for Lindor who isn't even as good as DJ is and who you can have for just cash would be monumentally stupid.

I hated the extra inning rule way less than I thought I would and 7 inning DH's are good... The main thing they have to get rid of is the expanded playoffs.

I can't imagine we see expansion soon. I'd be fine if they made the wild card game into a best of three, but other than that, expanded playoffs are gross. Hell, even the Brewers hated it.

Expansion? They should be contracting teams.

Is it just me or is the Stanton trade too high on this list at #2? The rest of the top-5 are:

1) The most infamous transaction in baseball history
3) Inner circle Hall of Famer and franchise icon (though past his peak)
4) Inner circle Hall of Famer before his peak
5) Inner circle Hall of Famer before his peak

Actually #3 is too high as well imo
