    Wow. These guys really pushing a ‘First base controversy’Voigt, Bird, Andujar.....they are constantly
    referring to the analytic measures of Trashman & Boonehead as to who lands the job. The way they
    are knocking Bird, I hope the guy wins the first base job..........outright!

    I for one am Uber thrilled Tulo 2Lo- is coming to the Bronx. A bargain of a signing, in which the Blue Jays will pay 99% of his salary...

    House for Machado, no way. 4 to 5 years ago I loved the idea of Machado coming to New York. Before I realized what a FKUP he is.....

    Yankees: How will the signing of Troy Tulowitzki affect Manny Machado?

    Machado shows his allegiance to no one ........he prefers his FA drags out for as long as possible.
    Oh please, be the pig you are and look elsewhere. I am no fan of yours.

    I'll bet Judge has black & blue marks all over his ass for kicking it when he made those comments to Machado about he' (Machado would look good in pinstripes. Come on Philadelphia, give that spoiled little guppy a fat 10 year deal and keep him out of Casmans clutches.

    Britton had some shaky performances but I guess better him than Robertson.

    Britton is imho not even close to having Miller in the Bullpen.

    Another step backwards.

    We were spoiled by Mo.
    More men have walked on the Moon, than scored off of No-no-Mo in Post Season...
    Not Hideo....fk Hideo...

    if he comes back to his 2015 and 2016 years this will be a tremendous signing for us. Have to remember he had injuries during the 2017 season.

    Trashman does it again. He has signed 29 yr old journeyman OF Billy Burns to a minor league contract to
    help fill out the roster of AAA Scranton.This GM sure knows his way around the Trashbin!

    Saw an article this AM claiming that the lack of interest shown to Harper & Machado by MLB Teams was disgraceful. Well shit, for what they allegedly want for what they will give back is not worth the rumored salaries they'll receive. This article was on Yardbarker and written by a sportswriter named Jason Rowan.

    ....^^^^

    The only disgrace is both Machado and Harper and their Agents, for thinking anyone's worth 30 Mil $$$.

    Neither Kershaw or Greinke's worth 30 Mil.

    IF any One Athlete is worth 30 Mil $$$ imho, it would be Trout.

    What would Mantle, May's, Ford, Gibson, Koufax, Marichal and numerous others be worth today???
    One thing is for certain: None of these were Egomaniacs to believe they were worth 40 Mil in today's FKDUP market.

    Free Agency has become a Fkng Beast and Agents have turned a Fkng Sport a bless-ed Game into Big Business.

    Players have become Commodities in lieu of Athletes....

    Ball Players like Say Hey, the Mick, Teddy Ball game and the like were franchise players and earned the salaries they got. Marvin Miller was an advocate for salaries, Steinbrenner paid for what he believed to be a where withal for success but none of that happened until Curt Flood challenged the system, these modern day fuck wads probably don't even know who Curt Flood was.

    Yeah, it's a disgrace that teams don't want to strap themselves with ten year $400 million contracts.

    Caught a bit of MLB Tonight this AM prior to Hot Stove. The "Sports Journalist" (did not catch his name) said that Othani will be the face of MLB in 10 years. Hot Stove today is hosted by Fran Charles & Ron Darling a much improved duo ove Vasgergian & Reynolds. John Heyman reports today that the Yankees interst in Machado is dimming, they (Yankees) do not want to fork out Stanton Money, good show if that is true. I'm rooting for the White Sox and Philly. Per Shehadi a go fund me set up by Yankee Fans for Machado had received but 167 Dollars. Shows me where the fans stand on Manny Boy.
