Mancini gets right of first refusal for any Grapefruit 1B reps he wants, right?
Maybe Hyde gets a text thread going among the three of them so by breakfast they all know what's up this afternoon.
Chris Shaw may or may not be in the list.
Astros, Cubs and Red Sox all have those recent rings (couldn't say if they had Best 5-Year Record in their League), and I think those give cover to re-do those bottom lines on the rolling 7-10 year balance sheet. We have to beat $300M of Yankees three years out, but the Red Sox really can't pitch and Xander's shortstop clock strikes 30 in the not too distant future. It'll be tougher if Devers (and Vlad) stay trim.
The 2023-2024 Yankees do already have almost $100M of it committed to Stanton, Hicks, LeMahieu, and then Cole much more productively. We'll see if Judge gets a Springer-ish AAV, or Voit keeps getting tendered.
I think I think a healed up Chris Sale is more of a trade acquisition possibility than someone tormenting us in 2023.
I get the frustration about his comments being similar to the past, to the stupid contract and still being on the team.
If he must be here (and it seems likely at this point), it'd be nice if the changes made a difference and he showed significant progression. Not going to bank on it, but it would be more fun to have him not suck if we're stuck with him.
