    Oh, baby!!!

    Trade just announced!

    The NY Yankees robbed Jeter blind!!

    [​IMG]


    Stanton, who turned 28 last month, hit .281/.376/.631 (165 OPS+) with those MLB leading 59 home runs in 2017, earning him NL MVP honors.

    ...Castro goes from the Cubs to the Yankees to the Marlins over a span of three offseasons. He had a career season in 2017, batting .300/.338/.454 with 16 HRs and a 106 OPS+. With two years left on his seven-year, $60 million deal and a club option for 2020, he could be a candidate to be traded again before the start of the season if the Marlins go into full rebuild mode.

    Of the two prospects reportedly going to the Marlins, Jorge Guzman, 21, is likely the one with the best chance to make an impact. The Yankees' ninth-best prospect per MLB.com prior to the trade, Guzman posted a 2.84 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 88/18 K/BB ratio in 66 2/3 innings at short-season A-ball in 2017. The Yankees also received Jose Devers, who wasn't ranked among the Yankees' top 30 prospects by MLB.com."

    I was a Derek Jeter fan up to the day he accepted the ball back from this fan....

    "For Christian Lopez, the 23-year-old fan who came up with Jeter’s 3,000th hit at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, the ramifications of his gift from above are as American as baseball, hot dogs and taxes.


    “There’s different ways the I.R.S. could try to characterize a ball caught by a fan in the stands,” said Andrew D. Appleby, a tax associate at the Sutherland Asbill & Brennan law firm in New York who has written about the tax implications of souvenir baseballs. “But when the Yankees give him all those things, it’s much more clear-cut that he owes taxes on what they give him.”"
    Fan May Owe Taxes For Claiming Jeter’s 3,000th Hit


    Jeter.....a millionaire, should have signed the ball and given it right back to Lopez.


    Now......snatching Stanton.......Karma.

    The contract is a millstone. They owe Stanton $30,000,000 a year, until 2027. (He'll be 38.) Figure at least $60,000,000 of dead money on the contract...unless he opts out (he can in 2020), in which case he's either gone, or they will have to pay him MORE money.

    Jeter is probably turning cartwheels...he is out from under a horrible contract, with an All-Star second baseman and one of NY's better pitching prospects. He might have simply given Stanton away, had any team agreed to simply pay the entire contract. (As it stands, the Marlins are eating $30,000,000.) There is no way on Earth the Yankees are staying under the 2018 luxury tax threshold as they claimed, especially with Ellsbury's albatross of a contract.

    Castro is signed to a reasonable contract (about $10M/year) for 2 seasons, with a team option for 2020.

    EXCEPT.....that Jeter took back 30k of Stanton's salary plus the salary of Castro.

    Yanks come out way ahead in this deal by every metric imaginable.

    So....Stanton costs $14-15 million/year....

    Machado next year??????

    The Yankees owe 260M...basically, it is another A-Rod contract, even after Miami pays the 30M.

    No...this is third grade math! Ten years, 260 million, means they owe him $26,000,000 per season!

    It's not just your math that needs help....

    Jeter took back $30k and Castro is about ten more.



    Stanton for $15k/per

    WHACK, WHACK, WHACK! OK, one more time: the Yankees are on the hook for $260,000,000 of the remaining $290,000,000. The contract is for another ten seasons. Therefore, the average salary is (yet again) $26,000,000 per year. This is NOT nuclear physics.

    I believe when this is complete Stanton plus min wage type who starts at 2b will cost #yankees as much toward luxury tax threshold as Holliday and Castro cost last year.
