Yankees having trouble finding a taker for Jacoby Ellsbury as per John Heyman.
Hicks and Yankees settle for one year $2.825 million.
Seems like a good deal to me.
Why are we not surprised. If he cannot get his job back let him be the Permanent Latrine Orderly for the team Clubhouse.
...more money well spent.
Yankees avoid arbitration and have resigned Tommy Kahnle as per Yankees Sports Talk.
Blue Jays and Josh Donaldson avoid arbitration settle at 23 Million as per Ken Rosenthal.
The Yankees and Adam Warren settle at 3.3 Million avoiding arbitration as per Jon Heyman.
Yu Darvish Tweeted that The Yankees haven't made him an offer yet as per Bronx Bombers Beat.
Trashcan should tweet back an offer, 5 years 15 million dollars total, 3 million a year...lol-!
New York tried to get ahead of the market by offering him a seven-year deal worth $160 million, but when Darvish didn't accept the offer in 48 hours, the Yankees pulled off the table, according to ESPN NY's Michael Kay.
^^^^ Wow, some of us, if not all of us, have said at one time or another, "eat a good chunk of his contract, and trade his ass". Half his 22 Mil, Trashman's as desperate to get rid of dead weight dingleberry's after all, even if it cost him an arm & leg. Throw one testicle in the mix (w/the arm & leg), and maybe you'll get a deal, find a desperate taker, peddling known over priced shit.... Jacoby's going to be a hard trade, no one wants him, no one. Either pay 3/4's his salary
according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. 3 more seasons with t/4th being a 5 Mil $$$ buyout, you know will be paid.
Reason #1 you never sign a player and hand Him a "no trade clause", unless He's earned it via the 10/5 rights.
The New York Yankees are said to be willing to pay at least half of Jacoby Ellsbury’s $22 million salary but are still having trouble stirring much trade interest at this point. That could be because there are so many similar players still available on the free-agent market, though, and it’s possible they could find some takers later.
Ellsbury hit .264 with seven home runs and 39 RBIs in 112 games this season.
Yup he just said it again on his Show.
Darvish is a good pitcher but I'm surprised he turned that offer down if in fact that report was true...but now I'm reading that the reported offer either never happened or was inaccurate.
NEW YORK -- The Yankees reached one-year contracts with their remaining six players eligible for arbitration on Friday, leaving their projected luxury-tax payroll at $177 million -- $20 million below the threshold.
Shortstop Didi Gregorius agreed at $8.25 million, pitcher Sonny Gray at $6.5 million and setup man Dellin Betances at $5.1 million. Also reaching deals were relievers Adam Warren ($3,315,000) and Chasen Shreve ($825,000), and backup catcher Austin Romine ($1.1 million).
Didi Gregorius reached a new deal as the Yankees moved to get under the luxury-tax line.
New York's luxury-tax payroll rose to $149,927,500 for 15 players with agreements, and the projected total is well under the $197 million tax threshold. The projection includes $10 million for the rest of the 40-man roster, $14,044,600 for benefits and a $3 million charge for cash transactions: a $5.5 million payment to Houston as part of the Brian McCann trade, a $500,000 payment to San Diego as part of the Chase Headley deal and a $3 million credit from Miami as part of the Giancarlo Stanton acquisition.
Wait... Wtf? $23M?
Mission accomplished...less maybe a SP; maybe 2 come by the trade deadline, or next winter meetings...
Btw- Gerrit Cole signs w/Stros...
