The Yankees should trade Sanchez to the Marlins for  Realmuto and maybe swing a deal that included Starlin Castro was well, who can play 2B while Torres slides over to shortstop, while Didi is recovering. Also Castro can play 3rd. and shortstop. Also today, the Cubs have non-tendered Toe  and resign him.

Hey Clipper, who is your all time favorite Yankees catcher you have seem outside of Yogi.....does E.Howard or Munson comes to mind?





I grew up in the 1950's with Yogi and later Howard in the 1960's. I really liked Munson because he was old school behind the plate, like Yankees HOF Bill Dickey, who taught him as a rookie.

Yet the Yankees are seemingly so focused on "clarifying" comments from a player who shows laziness, and who professes laziness. A player whom they seem more than ready to drop $30m per for a bunch of years on. Makes zero sense.


I'm sure if Sanchez gets back to hitting 30+ homers and driving in a bunch of runs, his attitude won't be seen as such an issue.

Per Heyman, the Yankees seem to be willing to include Gary Sanchez in a deal for Realmuto, but only in something approximating a straight-up swap. Sanchez, who has four remaining years of team control to Realmuto’s two, has turned off some admirers with his indifferent play behind the plate and propensity for the long slump, but is nevertheless an extremely valuable asset in today’s desiccated offensive landscape behind the dish. Indeed, Steamer actually projects the 26-year-old Sanchez to be nearly as valuable next season as the elder Realmuto (3.5 WAR, to the latter’s 3.7), pegging him for a 116 wRC+ to Realmuto’s 108. It should be noted, too, that analytical models are far more bullish on Sanchez’s much-maligned defense than the general public: DRS, after all, sees Sanchez as clearly superior to the Marlin star over the last three seasons, while Baseball Prospectus, though higher on Realmuto, mostly agrees, seeing the Dominican-born backstop as generally above-average over the same frame. The Marlins, though, seem to find the package insufficient without other “top pieces” involved, which scenario would almost surely be a non-starter for the Bombers.




What do you think BG ? We know Sanchez upside with the bat but I don't care what the stats say he's terrible behind the plate. I haven't watched enough of Realmuto to know if he's worth Sanchez potential. 




If the chance came up I'd do the deal, even up.  From what I've seen they want Sanchez plus.  Jeter can pound sand. Sachez has a great arm,  but he'll always have trouble blocking balls because of his legs. They're too big for the position and it cuts down on his quickness and movement. I do think he will come out of his funk with the bat. I can't believe he just lost it in one offseason.  




I grant you Sanchez has a bit more of a track record of production than Jesus Montero.  But Montero seemingly "lost" it between his Yankee debut and his first season with Seattle and was, essentially, out of the majors the following year.


Now I think Sanchez is a more talented all around player than Montero.  But his lazy attitude could well sink him.

If he puts up a .285/30/100 season we'll happily live with mediocre defense.  But if he is hitting under .200 with one HR come May and is leading the league in passed balls the torches and pitchforks will be out en masse.

Then imagine the reaction when the possible $30 million dollar Machado loafs to first base on a ball off the wall like he did in the WS.If a player isn't busting it on MLB's biggest stage, with the most at stake, what makes anyone think he will be better during regular season games.


Hal really needs to think when he says Machado's comments need clarfication. MM's actions and words have spoken.

I never denied that Cano was a productive player but I never enjoyed watching him as a player. If Sanchez puts up the 30 homers with a 280 batting average and still shows lazy tendencies I'll feel about him as I did with Cano. If they bring on Machado and he pulls the same nonsense and I stop enjoying watching guys like him and Sanchez play, I just won't follow them the way I do now. 


With the whole sabermetrics, lack of steals and hit and runs while waiting for the 3 run homer, I find the game less exciting now anyway. Add a couple of guys trotting down to first on ground balls, I'll start watching the Real Housewives of New York instead

Sorry, I maybe in the minority but I don't like the idea of Sanchez being traded for JT. 


JT is the better catcher but the Yankees will lose a lot of HRs and RBIs if they trade Sanchez. 1 bad season isn't enough for the Yankees to give up on Sanchez. 



I'm afraid on this one, Max. Realmuto would be a good player, but Sanchez could be great...  Then Sanchez could turn out to be Jesus Montero...

    thinking about this, the answer is easy. If the Marlins initiated the conversation, thank them for their time and say no. When you have an AS catcher there are lots of teams you could call. They called the Yankees because they think Sanchez is special. I'll take their word for it.

The Marlins have inside info as well...   We need to find someone who can work with Gary, so his potential becomes success on the field.

I think there's a couple things to consider here, first Jeter has a hand in this and second, their catcher is going to be up for a big payday in a couple of years and the Marlins don't have the money to spend as the Yankees do... Sanchez has a couple more years of team friendly control than their man...
