Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Craig Kimbrel

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Craig Kimbrel

Would it make sense for the Yankees to sign the active leader in saves? In the past 13 years or so, the Yankees have signed multiple key, World Series-winning Red Sox when they’ve hit free agency. On one hand, there was the Johnny Damon signing. He gave the Yankees four solid seasons of lead-off hitting, culminating in the 2009 season, which ended in a championship. The other side of the coin is Jacoby Ellsbury. After a good first season, he’s fallen off a cliff, mainly due to injuries. It’s been over a year since he’s last played a game, and for all we know he may have lost an arm....

Why a Yankees trade for Robinson Cano makes sense

Why a Yankees trade for Robinson Cano makes sense

The Yankees and Mariners quickly discussed a swap of Robinson Cano and Jacoby Ellsbury. Maybe the Yankees should pursue it harder. The story of the Yankees and Robinson Cano is an old one. Like a strip of smooth dirt in the forest, this is a path that’s been hunted before. You might assume that because we’re dealing with mega-contracts and sabermetrics that this is a modern tale, but you’d be wrong. This one takes us back to a similar story, almost 2,000 years ago. In that old story, a boy asks his father for his inheritance and then travels the world living lavishly, only to return...

Are the Yankees looking for a first baseman?

Are the Yankees looking for a first baseman?

Recent rumors suggest that the Yankees’ first base situation isn’t exactly set in stone. While the Yankees have only consummated one major move in recent weeks, the trade for James Paxton, rumors have been increasingly swirling. Sonny Gray rumblings are commonplace now. There are the consistent mentions of Bryce Harper, and Manny Machado. Justus Sheffield was reportedly offered for Paul Goldschmidt, and Jacoby Ellsbury for Robinson Cano apparently has been discussed. We can link a few of these rumors in an interesting way. The offer for Goldschmidt, the Ellsbury/Cano swap, and the...

Yankees reportedly discussed a Jacoby Ellsbury for Robinson Canó trade

Yankees reportedly discussed a Jacoby Ellsbury for Robinson Canó trade

These talks probably didn’t get very far. Just as life imitates art, sometimes baseball operations mirror FanPosts. According to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic (subscription required), the Yankees and Mariners discussed a Jacoby Ellsbury for Robinson Canó swap at the start of the offseason. “Earlier this offseason, sources said, the Mariners and Yankees briefly discussed a contract swap involving Canó and outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, who is owed $47.2 million over the next two years and holds a full no-trade clause. “The Yankees wanted the Mariners to include significant cash in...
