Apples and oranges. Gittens is a DH posing as a 1B. Wade is a superutility guy.




That was my point.  Gittens had almost no value while Wade clearly did.   They hung onto Gittens for a week then released him forcing them to release Wade.




Another one of Cashman's inexplicable moves. He is releasing players he held on to with white knuckles for years, now dumping them for nothing. He is grossly overrated as a GM.




Gittens still has options and Wade was out of them.   My guess is Gittens didn't have an offer from the far East until recently, and the Yanks let him go to pursue it.

Meanwhile, Breaux isn't on the 40 man roster.

  I think he is fixated on Carlos Correa much as he once was Alex Rodriguez. He is leaving the Yankees no other options.

If so, he is really not smart. Correa will want at least what Seager/Lindor got, probably more, with a NTC, and is yet another RH batter with an injury history.

Yes - again, not smart.

Kinda takes the suspense out of whether or not they will offer Sanchez a contract
