The only way we should take Machado would be a lopsided steal.  I have no problem with showing interest but we shouldn’t sacrifice anything to rent him.  After the season Cashman should try to extend Didi while pointing out our depth at 2B, 3B, and SS as well as our interest in Machado’s free agency.  If Didi doesn’t sign on a team friendly extension then trade him and develop Torres at SS.

I don't understand why the Yankees should be interested in a guy that says he only wants to play shortstop, when DiDi is one of the best shortstops in the game, the Yankees first priority should be a top ranked pitcher, not a shortstop. Anyone can see that

I agree but the Yankees have to be careful with Didi.  He is middle of the pack in defense, offense, and speed as a SS and the team only has a year and a half of control left over him.  If he is to stay long term Cashman has to make sure it’s not expensive to keep him and he has viable plans B and C

Yes LL, I agree


But if its a 1 on 1 trade DiDi for Manny, that would be a no brainer. Wishful thinkingTongue Out

Then who plays SS next year?  Torres?  Then who plays 2B? Don't see them handing out the kind of contract Machado is reportedly looking for.

I want the Yankees to steer clear of Machado and Harper but I can’t imagine any team would trade for him without it being an audition for 2019 and beyond

If George was alive Manny would be Yankee just because of today’s game.

True, but is that a good thing?

Oh and you forgot the best part...if he was on our team, he would also underachieve (as most of the superstars we sign do, when compared to what they did with their previous teams...see Gray for the latest example).
