If the Blosox go on to win the division, JD Martinez will be the reason why. Yes, anytime a team gets a championship banner courtesy of a free agent signing, the deal was a steal.



The guy is a beast this year, but he also has had a very good track record career-wise. If his 2019 is anything like this season, he will likely opt out of his deal.


He didn't sign until February 26th; I was somewhat surprised the Yankees never seemed to show any interest in him. Much cheaper, and a shorter deal than Stanton.




The reason they didn't show interest in JD was because Cashman felt the Stanton deal made more sense, since it cleared the way for bringing Torres to the Bronx, as Castro went to Miami for Stanton. Once that deal was made, and the Yankees picked up Stanton's huge contract...no way they would've even contemplated getting JD for the kind of money he was asking.




I was aware of those reasons for the Stanton deal. But Torres natural position is shortstop, not second, and they could easily have moved Castro in another trade. Didi may end up being moved this offseason if his $ demands are too high, especially given how good Torres has been.


Was not a fan of getting Stanton somewhat due to the dollars, but mainly due to the length of his contract. It is because of contracts like his, and Ellsbury's, that the Yankees are somewhat limited in absorbing money now, to stay under the $197m threshold CBT.




I know it was great to get the MVP of the NL from the previous year, but I don't like this trade, he's not a good hitter, he's a homerun hitter but he has too many bad at bats for me.. Last night he looked completely lost, swinging at pitches he couldn't even reach.. To me he's a guess hitter and if he doesn't guess right, he strikes out..


Call the Angels Ca$hman, I have a trade idea, and I'm betting the Angels would turn it down, trade both Stanton and Judge for Trout and pay a third of Stantons contract.. How many on this board would do that deal ???




Only the idiots. You want to trade the best on base hitter the Yankees have, and the best chance at driving him in, and trade them both for 1 player, who if he gets hurt, that will be it for the team. Not to mention the fact that the Yankees would have to be mighty stupid to not only continue to pay a chunk of Stanton's contract, while also having to pay for Trout's too? Total insanity...The Yankees are close to winning it all right now, but if they made that trade, they would become a .500 team (at best maybe 10 games over) for the next 5 yrs.




I think he was joking around.  Or maybe not ... I'm not sure.




No, I wasn't !!!! 


I would rather have one of Trout than both of Judge-Stanton... I see as a trade for Judge for Trout, Stanton isn't a plus or minus on this team, too many bat at bats.. I'd take the gamble with a better contact hitter to take his spot.. Like I said you can all get on my back but that's the way I feel...




I think the losing is getting to you ... I wouldn't do that deal in a million years.




First thing I'm going to say is, I bet the Angels wouldn't either ?? 2nd tell me your reason you wouldn't ???




It's simple ... Judge and Stanton are better than one Mike Trout ... you need to get a grip.




I'm a little late in aswering your question Mo, someone came to the door..


Here's my reason, and I honestly don't think I need to get a grip... First off in my opinion Trout is better than Judge, he's a more complete hitter, he can hit for average as well as power and will diffenetly strike out a lot less, maybe the two are close in defense, I'll give the edge to Judge with his throwing arm, but that's the only edge I give to Judge.. Now for Stanton, yes he's a power hitter, and was a MVP, but in saying that, I think we could get a hitter that again would be a better average hitter, most likely won't come close to hitting as many homeruns as Stanton does, but he'll strike out a hell of a lot less... Now the next point I want to make, take Stanton's money and you could probably get at least one and a half quality players for what he's costing us.. Next I know we have team control for Judge for a few years but by the time he's going to become elegable for a rainse he's going to get a big one..


These are the main points why I would make a trade like this... But again because I'm on the right track, and you won't agree with me, I'm betting the Angels wouldn't do that trade either because think we would be getting the best of that trade ?? So no need to worry it ain't happening anyways, but again I'd go for this and I'd almost bet Ca$hman would too ???







If you think Cashman would trade Stanton and Judge for Trout, you're dreaming ... I don't have a clue how you came up with this idea ... but I think it's wacky.

That's fine with me, I never thought it would go anywhere either, just doing a little arm chair GMing... I know Judge is a fan favorite, and he should be, it's been a long time since we had a player like him, I guess Jeter comes the closest, but I don't think it would be long for the fans to fall in love with Trout either.. 


If anyone is reading these posts, chime in and give your two cents... I'm interested in to see if anyone else feels the same way I do ???

Being critical of a player does not equate to hate.



Bird was amazing when he was first called up years ago and has not done a damn thing since to earn playing time.




I think that’s where a lot of the Bird hate lies. Management is entitling him to first base w/o earning it. The frustration is understandable. His proneness to injury doesn’t help Yell

Didn’t want to add to that novel of a post so ill just throw my opinion of Judge out there. I feel like he was thrown out there as a replacement to Jeter ( if that was possible) and I don’t like when players get rushed so I didn’t accept him right away. However, after last year AJ showed he can handle the spotlight and do quite well while everybody watches ( the whole baseball world, no lie). He cut down on his strikeouts and mashed 50 homers Surprised as well as being vocal with his teammates (growing into a leader) and stays out of trouble in the biggest playground in the world ( young kid with money). He’s a freak of nature (size) that will continue to sell tickets and merchandise long after people stop talking about Trout. I like Judge but then again it’s hard not to. My two pennies Smile

I personally don't hate Bird, I just think he may not be able to do much this season.   Not sure when/if he will round in to form after this latest pretty serious ankle injury, but this year's team is just too good to keep waiting for him to hit over .200 and to stop wincing in pain and looking at his ankle.


I'd have him back on the DL until he has 0 pain if they can get a replacement, and once he's truly 100% physically, have him to AAA until his swing/timing is back.    If that can happen this year, great, there's a DH slot and he can possibly get back in to the lineup if he's ready, either DH'ing or by outplaying his version of Andujar.   Basically he should be treated like Drury was at the start of the season - take all the time you need, make sure he's fully healthy, and then he needs to earn his way back at AAA.


That's for the good of the team and to have the best shot at winning a WS this year, I like Bird.

He can demand all he wants, but his salary will be determined for the next 2 years by arbitration.




Didi is a FA after the 2019 season.

So sick of the hate for Bird. Listen people and listen good. If they DFA him he would get claimed immediately.And you haters would be belly aching. You are the same bunch who wanted to give up on Judge, as I recall. Impatient fans.



Being critical of a player does not equate to hate.



Bird was amazing when he was first called up years ago and has not done a damn thing since to earn playing time.




I think that’s where a lot of the Bird hate lies. Management is entitling him to first base w/o earning it. The frustration is understandable. His proneness to injury doesn’t help 



Exactly who is Bird's "competition" for first base that he needs to earn the position over? Walker? Drury? Austin?  He will be better than any of those players, if he can stay healthy longer term.

I know it was great to get the MVP of the NL from the previous year, but I don't like this trade, he's not a good hitter, he's a homerun hitter but he has too many bad at bats for me.. Last night he looked completely lost, swinging at pitches he couldn't even reach.. To me he's a guess hitter and if he doesn't guess right, he strikes out..


Call the Angels Ca$hman, I have a trade idea, and I'm betting the Angels would turn it down, trade both Stanton and Judge for Trout and pay a third of Stantons contract.. How many on this board would do that deal ???



For Trout, I'd trade Stanton, possibly Hicks to be their CF, and/or 1-3 prospects.


No way I trade Judge. He is a homegrown Yankee, is extremely popular with the fans, very productive, and is a stand up, decent guy. Just the type of person I like to have on my Yankees.
