I like it. Big expectations for this team. Boone is a smart guy. Hopefully he can handle it.
I agree TDK
Fuck off Ohtani!
Giancarlo Stanton to Yanks virtually done....Castro and 2 medium prospect? 59 homers and 132 ribbies last year

That poor baseball. (Mark Brown/Getty)
Saturday: The Yankees and Marlins have a deal for Stanton, reports Heyman. Sherman says the Marlins will get “at least” Castro plus “good but not top prospects” in the trade. I wonder if that “at least” part means another veteran with a pricey contract (Chase Headley?) could be involved? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. I’ll have more on the trade in a bit.
Friday: The Yankees and Marlins are discussing a Giancarlo Stanton trade, according to multiple reports. Stanton used his no-trade clause to block deals to the Giants and Cardinals the teams announced earlier today, which apparently prompted the Yankees to get involved. Here’s what we know so far:
Stanton will accept a trade to the Yankees. Apparently his four-team approved list is the Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, and Astros. [Ken Rosenthal]
Momentum for a trade is “significant” and talks have reached an “advanced stage.” The Dodgers are still in the mix, however. [Jeff Passan, Jon Morosi]
The Yankees would not be sending any of their top prospects to the Marlins. The Yankees have a loaded farm system, so even their non-top prospects are pretty good. [Jon Heyman]
Starlin Castro‘s name has come up in trade talks. That would help offset Stanton’s massive salary somewhat. [Morosi]
Jacoby Ellsbury has not been asked to waive his no-trade clause, since I know you’re all wondering whether he’s part of the trade. [Mark Feinsand]
The Marlins are “actively trying” to get a deal done with the Yankees, though it’s unclear if it’ll get done tonight, if at all. [Joe Frisaro]
The Yankees are likely to keep Brett Gardner. They’re trying to dump Ellsbury on the Marlins though. [JonHeyman]
Stanton to the Yankees is “close if not done,” which, uh, sounds amazing. [Hank Schulman]
Things have a way of coming together very quick with the Yankees, so stay tuned. They’ll have to get a little creative to add Stanton and stay under the luxury tax threshold.
On behalf of my Blue Jays...
Wow! Things change quickly in sports. In an 8-month period the Yankees have went from a young building team, to a surprise Young Gun team 1 win from the World Series, to now a Power House Bronx Bombing team who could potentially be starting another Dynasty!
I'm speechless. I almost feel like I'm missing something, there has to be more. Castro + a couple of A-ball prospects!? Fuckmothering hell, Cashman strikes again. Not sure who plays 2B for now. Long-term either Gleyber or Didi slides over I guess.
Jeter still coming through for the bombers
Didi, Sanchez, Judge, Stanton: 169
The Boston Red Sox: 168
BREAKING: The Red Sox have reconstructed the Green Monster after hearing the Yankees acquired Giancarlo Stanton.
