    I don't see how the finances make sense. Unless we trade prospects to dump contracts.

    I don't even care at this point, lol. The fact that the Yankees have a very good chance of getting Cole is amazing.

    Looks like the Yanks may put their best foot forward regarding Cole. If they make a legit offer and he chooses someplace else then c'est la vie.

    Just from a starting pitching perspective. They'll probably allow Tanaka and Big Maple walk. If they sign Cole then they are going over all the lux tax thresholds this year and their is no way around it.

    I don’t think they care about the finances.

    But I do think they move Happ to offset a little money for at least next year.

    I don't think they'll let both Big Maple and Tanaka walk, but decent chance one will, sadly.

    Tanaka had a great run here, but he’s the guy you let walk, no question.

    Cole
    Severino
    Paxton

    Me, I wouldn't be surprised if they let both go, all dependent on price of course. ...But, both will be 32, one with still a partially torn UCL and the other with a significant injury history. Paxton is a Boras client on top of it. If they are looking to save money. I think it'll be here. Also will have to wait and see how the German situation plays out and how Devie Garcia develops.

    Maybe, but I just cannot see them letting both walk. Trying to replace both of them at once wouldn't be very easy (at least at first)

    You forgot Strasburg :naughty:

    But in all seriousness, they could let both walk if they did sign Strasburg as well. You have Deivi Garcia and Clarke Schmidt coming through the pipeline. A couple other real good arms. They have drafted a ton of arms. You just need one to push through if you get Strasburg too because you could find a veteran SP on the cheap to be the 5th starter. They also still have Monty

    Cole
    Strasburg
    Severino
    Montgomery
    Garcia/Schmidt

    The Yankees should not give a rats ass about going over the luxury threshold. That organization makes SO MUCH money

    Happ should be moved either way. He's garbage.

    The thing is they CAN afford it and they can shed salary in the next two years. They can possibly shed Happ’s salary for next season. Tanaka and then Paxton as well. They have young cost effective arms coming through the system to offset the heavy investment in the front end of the Starting Rotation.

    Pitching wins championships.

    Settle the SP. Then look at bringing Betances back. Maybe Treinen brought in here too. Stack the pitching.

    After that see what you do about CF. I would let Frazier and Tauchman battle it out for LF. Maybe you bring back Gardner for CF while Hicks recovers but I think you can find a cheaper option to get the same results offensively/defensively that you would from Gardner while not paying extra for the clubhouse leadership. Maybin also a good candidate for LF.

    Look into Lindor. Especially if they pass on Strasburg and can include Kluber in that package for say Andujar + +. But if no Lindor I want Didi back. They almost need him back as a lefty bat. Have him sign a team friendly 1 year deal and let him it free agency again.

    Would like to have Romine back.

    Lots of options

    Signing both is unrealistic. At this point, I'm happy that there's a very good chance they'll sign one of them hahah. But if they somehow pulled off signing both, then you definitely let Tanaka, Paxton and Happ go at the end of this upcoming season (with Happ possibly even being traded before then).

    In the meantime, imagine a rotation of Cole-Stras-Severino-Paxton-Tanaka? My god...

    Had some solid stats for the Mets after getting cut. Hopefully he can build on that and be a nice middle reliever for them. Cheap deal too, with an option for the following season.

    I'd be very surprised if Didi doesn't get a longer deal elsewhere.

    I hope Didi gets his money from somewhere, just not here.

    I’m all aboard the Strasburg and Cole train.

    Didi might only get a 1-2 year deal. I don't see a team giving him a 4-5 year deal one.
