How are Gary and Gio doing?


What happened to all of the haters of that trade who were calling for Cashman's head?

not gonna judge any trade on 30 games but yes so far so good. josh is an ugrade over gio and as poorly as our catchers have hit - the improved defense, framing and general handling of the pitchers is a major upgrade over sanchez. on the downside, even as josh is starting to hit his stride, will never understand the taking on of all that contract. josh is gonna have to have a great season to justify that.

No one complained re dealing Sanchez. Any "complaint" re the Gio/Donaldson deal had to do with taking on Donaldson's contract at a time of looming FA for several current Yankees.

     Who was the guy who tendered the $ 8 M offer for 2022 to Sanchez ?

Judge will be a FA, that's really the only guy they should be worried about.   Considering they can shed 31 million between Chapman and Britton, they should have no problem signing him - so long as he doesn't get unreasonable as Cano did.


They have Josh for one more year.   Tons of people were clamouring for one of the big ticket FA SSs to be signed, and they were all going to command 6/7/8+ years.   And they're being paid much more than what Josh is.   The salt was flowing after that trade on multiple levels.

No doubt if Judge continues to hit like he has so far, they're going to have to make a tough decision... I think it will come down to just how much he wants to be a Yankee, there's other teams that are going to offer him more money just so they can take him away from the Yankees...

    Judge might give the Yankees a hometown discount but we can't expect that to be more than 5 %. Baseball is a business for both Judge and Steinbrenner. The Yankees are on course to argue an arbitration case that amounts to the difference of paying Judge 17 or 21 M for 2022. I think we'd all agree that regardless of how that works out, he'd be a bargain at that rate. But under the rules, the Yankees are free to underpay him. 


    If any of us were AJ and going into free agency, we would feel that we had been underpaid in our first 6 years of work. And we would be looking to make up at least a part of that money on the next deal. I will hate to see Judge leave New York and I still hope he doesn't, but if is offered more than 5% more to transplant, I won't be upset with him. This is the business the players and owners agreed on.

agree even at $21mil, he'd be a huge bargain. don't know how his season plays out but right now we're looking at a possible mvp worth $30-35. have no qualm with AJ getting a huge salary, the years is my big issue. i'm sure yanks will match or surpass any yearly salary but may not be willing to pony up for years beyond 37.

He's gonna want Mike Trout type money,  I love Judge but he started late so unless he's willing to sign for 5 or 6 years I think the Yankees will let him go.

I have read that his camp wants 9 or 10 years. If that is the case, he will probably be gone. Giving deals like that to players in their 30's is insane. But I doubt any team will give him that.


The Yanks will likely increase the dollars, but taking him through his age 37 season, which they offered, is far enough.
