You realize a Purple Sox response to the Giancarlo Stanton commerce is coming. The shock is that GM Dave Dombrowski didn’t return hearth on the Winter Conferences this week, however that could be as a result of he’s aiming excessive sufficient to shock the Yankees proper again.
The Boston Herald cited a supply saying that Dombrowski is continuing patiently as a result of he needs to have the ability to signal each Eric Hosmer and J.D. Martinez, the 2 prime place gamers on the free-agent market.
If that occurs, The Rivalry could possibly be heading again towards the let’s-go-nuts ranges of 2003-04, when the hype and depth felt as if it might by no means be matched.
And wouldn’t that be enjoyable.
Yankees loaded with prospects — cause for group’s transformation
On the very least, the Yanks and Sox appear to be separating themselves from the remainder of the AL East for the primary time in years, all of the extra so with the Orioles apparently significantly contemplating buying and selling Manny Machado somewhat than lose him to free company a yr from now.
And whereas the Yankees have expressed curiosity in Machado, I don’t see how they get him. In contrast to the Stanton commerce, they’d should commerce prime prospects for the Orioles to even contemplate coping with them, and that simply doesn’t make sense once they can wait a yr and easily signal him.
Brian Cashman could also be strolling tall nowadays, however he has put the Yankees again on prime, or close to the highest, with sensible, savvy strikes at each flip, and it’s arduous to consider he would get stars in his eyes now, regardless of how completely Machado matches.
As it’s, Cashman is on his method towards profitable the winter, if he hasn’t achieved so already. Unloading Chase Headley’s $thirteen million to the Padres was a feat solely barely much less spectacular than getting Stanton for peanuts, as he freed extra money so as to add beginning pitching and keep underneath the posh-tax threshold.
Yankees’ lineup prospects appear countless with Giancarlo Stanton
However perhaps Dombrowski goes to have one thing to say about that but, if he truly does signal each Martinez, the highest slugger available on the market, and Hosmer, maybe probably the most extremely-regarded participant.
