Reactions to the Yankees bringing back DJ LeMahieu were quite different than last time

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Remember how Yankees fans reacted when LeMahieu arrived in 2019? Friday’s news brought about the exact opposite response. Want to have yourself a good laugh to distract yourself from current horrors of the world? Go back to our community reaction post from almost exactly two years ago, when the Yankees signed free agent infielder DJ LeMahieu to a two-year, $24 million contract. Fast forward 24 months, and wow, that changed. After two MVP-caliber seasons, Yankees Universe rejoiced after LeMahieu re-signed with the Yanks on a six-year, $90...

The Yankees have re-signed DJ LeMahieu. Now what?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ It’s Moby Dick all over again. For the second offseason in a row, the Yankees caught their white whale. Now what do they do? After a half-decade during which the biggest splash the Yankees made in free agency was the ill-advised $153 million splurge on Jacoby Ellsbury, and during which they skipped out on bidding wars for the game’s best available targets, the Yankees have landed the top player on my team’s wishlists for the second year in a row. After nabbing Gerrit Cole for a gargantuan sum of $324 million over nine years last...

Photo by Alex Trautwig/MLB Photos via The Bombers accepted going to six years with their star infielder, but will have more financial room to operate thanks to a lower-than-anticipated AAV. Finally, it happened! The New York Yankees got their man, as infielder DJ LeMahieu agreed to sign a six-year contract worth $90 million, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. After months of little or no movement on the free agent front, the Bombers ended up securing their “offseason priority,” as general Brian Cashman recently said. Press reports had LeMahieu asking for at least...

The Yankees and DJ LeMahieu found their level

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ After a long standoff, the Yankees and their star second baseman finally reached a deal that both sides could claim as a win. At long last. The Yankees made us wait over three months, but a full quarter of a year since we saw them walk off the Petco Park field in anguish, they gave their fans something to smile about. DJ LeMahieu will be a Yankee again, and he just might close out his career in pinstripes after re-signing on a six-year, $90-million deal. This concludes a long staredown between the Bombers and LeMahieu, a battle in which each...
