    That's interesting. Shipping Donaldson makes sense, and Urshala is essentially his direct positional replacement. But, now we need a SS again, to keep Polanco at 2B where he is best. Hopefully we use Donnie's salary to fill the other needs.

    Sanchez replaces Garvers hitting (until last year when he was horrible), but isn't the greatest defensively. Takes the pressure off of Jeffers to be the everyday guy.
    Trust me, us Yankees fans were begging for them to get rid of Sanchez. Even his hitting has been highly overrated the past couple of years, especially in clutch playoff situations. He never truly developed into the superstar many expected. And I don't even want to talk about his defense or complete lack thereof. You can have him.

    I'm surprised they were willing to trade Urshela. He will be a good addition to your Twins. So, just how good is Kiner-Falefa? I know he's super fast, but he only passed through Minnesota...

      Sanchez will be the backup C/occasional DH, if he stays. So his defense shouldn't hurt too much. Maybe the scenery change will help his bat. Kiner-Falefa looks like he's above avg. as a defender and can hit. He's not a power guy though. More bat-on-ball type.

      The Twins real move was to clear the Donaldson money. He's over 20/mil a season and the report says the Yankees took all of it.

        Sanchez's swing was perfect for Yankee Stadium. Take that as you will.

        Baseball overall needs more bat on ball type of hitters, so I'm okay with that.

        Yeah, the Yankees can afford it. LOL

          Would love to be a fly on the wall in the clubhouse when Cole and Donaldson come together.

            Hot Stove is on fire!

            Matt Olson to... the Braves?! They give up a ton in prospects to make it happen.

            That means Freddie Freeman is likely signing elsewhere.

              I don't know how much Freeman is asking for, but Olson who was already under contract gets $168m/8-years from the Braves.

                  Mets and Yankees who are unvaccinated cannot play in New York. This is on top of the border crossing mandate that will not allow unvaccinated players to go between Canada and the US and vice versa (Blue Jays are 100% which is why the rule effectively is only keeping American-based teams from Toronto). So right now Aaron Judge and other Yankees are currently unable to play in roughly 90/156 games on the schedule.

                    Unless they have a specific medical issue that keeps them from being vaccinated, I don't feel bad for them. I also never will feel bad for the Yankees in general.

                    A lot of hot stove updates:

                    Blue Jays - Matt Chapman (A's)
                    Mariners - E. Suarez, J. Winkler (Reds)
                    Cubs - S. Suzuki (JP)
                    Phillies - K. Schwarber (FA)
                    Yankees - A. Rizzo (FA)

                    I expect news anytime now on the A's pitchers (Montas, Manaea), as well as landing spots for Story, Freeman, Correa, and old man Greinke.

                      Mets players last year topped out at 55% vaxxed.

                      Are we really 156? Not 162? Not 154?

                        I just guessed. I thought two series were knocked out due to the lockout.

                          I thought they were doing all 162.

                          I wish they had taken this opportunity to knock back to 154 permanently. If not far fewer.

                          A 100-game season would have such higher quality.

                            MLB will be 162 games this year as normal.

                              Rockies giving a 30yo K. Bryant 7-years with full no-trade. Feels about 2-years too many.

                              Z. Greinke (FA) to the Royals for 1-year.

                                And yet, the Rockies dumped Nolan Arenado last year when he was signed to a similar deal...
