This is a great article by Mike Lupica, on why Yankees will Regret it if they don't sign Machado, with some insight by Showalter. Good read, And I agree 100 % that Yankees will Regret it if they don't sign Machado. www.mlb.com/news/yankees-should-sign-man...

This team is no longer dedicated to winning. 10 years, one title.  Choke after choke since 04.  Save 09.  What happened to this once proud franchise?

IMO, within 2 years at the most, the Yankees will regret it if they do sign Machado.


Lupica hates the Yankees, so I certainly don't take anything he writes as designed to help the Yankee cause.

Aren't you a little old to be seeking attention on a message board. Man talk about insecurity

There are 30 teams in the major leagues.  This isn't the 1950's anymore, or even the late 90's...  I'd happily take a title every 10 years and maybe at least be a playoff team in 6-8 of those 10 years.  But at my age that means only one or two more titles!  LOL!  (which is still not bad considering there are teams with generations of fans who do not have the experience of winning it all EVER!)

 Do you ever do anything other than whine and complain? Your act is getting old. You must be a thrill to be around.

Bomber if I had my choice if they were going to sign one of Harper or Machado I'd take Harper. I agree down the road they most likely will regret signing either if they do at the back end of the deal but both are elite talents. I don't like the money and years they will want but they are extremely talented. The Sox brought in Martinez on a good deal. He has opt outs. If the Yanks do it I would want them in. I would also put in opt outs for the team. Say in 3 years both the team and player have opt outs. Machado still young and the Yanks can determine if he is worth the long term investment. I don't get why it's mostly the player with the opt outs.


  If they can come up with a contract like that I'm all in because both Harper and Machado are elite.

Depending on the actual contract numbers, I don't understand the huge reluctance by you guys on signing either one.


Most all the long contracts the Yankees have had were not problems IMO. It was the extensions and added contracts after players opted out, that bit them in the pants.


Both of these guys are considered top level players, at age 26, and are available for $ on the free market. Players such as this rarely ever become available until they are 30ish, unless you can make a trade to acquire them. It's almost a given these days that the contracts will have opt outs for the player, which should be fine. Give them opt outs past year 3 or 4, and you get their most productive years and let them walk. 


Let's put this in another light. Imagine the Red Sox were strongly considering signing either/both. Would you say,"Nah....let them have 'em! We should save Hal's money and sign Hecchevariololozelos and a back up catcher." ?

yank, I believe any contract over 3 -5 years is too long. But it is how things are usually done these days. I also wouldn't have as much of a problem with signing these guys if the deal was 3 years with options. Harper could put up monster numbers in Yankee Stadium. Machado though gives me a really uneasy feeling based on his personality more than his talent. And I am a big Andujar fan and want him to get a shot at 3B, which is the only place Machado can play well.

I agree........he is a great player, but for how many years???.....and how long will the knees hold up......and you are certainly correct about Lupica being a Yankee hater........I try not to pay attention to his Yankee thoughts.......I feel a little more comfortable, looking down the road to the player with the best chance at longevity, and for me, will forever and a day, pick Harper over Machado......we can fill the holes at SS for way less expensive, and grab a # 1 or 2 starter........if Machado finds his way to the Bronx, I will give him every chance to shine, and  to fulfill his contract, but more confident with what Harper brings to the table.......Go Yanks
