So.....DJ turned them down.......opinions on how high you think Yankees will go with an offer.....I'm guessing 3 years with an option for the 4th tear, at roughly 22 per.......thoughts?

Someone needs to help me out here because I'm having a real hard time with the math. Pinstripe Alley or one of those sites did a review of the 2021 payroll and they are projecting the Yankees will be about 30MM under the cap after arbitration. If we give DJL 22mm how are we going to address SP and still remain under the cap?

According to BBR and Spotrac, the Yankees will have a $167/$168m payroll for 2021 after all options and arb raises. The CBT threshold for '21 is $210m, so that projects to leave about $42-$43m to spend and stay under the cap.


I've heard that $30m figure mentioned before, but those sites indicate otherwise. The AAV payroll is different, and is likely how the $30m number comes into play.

Hi Jim, thanks for your reply, I like your number better than mine. I've always found the MLB method for establishing the LT threshold confusing. If you or someone could provide clarification on a couple items I'd appreciate it. Spotrac does show the contract number at 168mm but I cant determine if it includeds the estimated Arb. numbers. You seem to indicate it does. Also there is comthing called AAV which I think is the average annual value of the 40 man roster which I always thought was the basis for the LT. hat numeber is considerably higher at 191MM. Neither of those figures include player benefits which I had thought also was used to alculate LT. That is another 15mm.


I've heard different mumbers as to how much space the Yanks have. If anyone could simplify this I'd be grateful. I guess the real number wont be know until 40 man roster is set and arbitration or renegotiated contracts are finalized but we should have a ballpark figure.

He turned down the Yankees offer. This proves 100% without a doubt that he does not want to play for this organization and he wants out. He wants to play for a team that actually wants to compete for a championship.

Or, it could mean at 32, coming off two very good years, he's looking for more than a 1 year contract.

Turning down a QO has nothing to do with wanting out. It's a strategic positioning. There have been many and will be many more turning them down. I'm assuming you've only been watching baseball for a short time because obviously you haven't noticed, this team competes for a championship almost every year.

Ive been a Yankee fan all of my life and I am 32 years old so you are wrong. Its called having some humor. I know why he did it.
