    Yanks going to get Soto?

    Talks are really heating up. Martino is very, very optimistic. I can't imagine it would cost as much as we thought b/c he is for sure going to hit FA next year.

    Love the move for them for 2024, but I would be terrified about him hitting FA after next year which Boras already said is 100% happening. Dude is going to command 10/450

    With that short right field fence at Yankee Stadium Soto is going to kill it homerun wise and RBI wise next season. Last year with SD he hit .275 with 35 HR's and 109 RBI's. Great addition to the lineup for the Yankees.

    35/110 in Petco park is wild. He may hit 50 in Yankee stadium. I wonder how much money he is going to get, 10/450 may even be light. He's only 26. I wonder if we see 13/520

    Not sure how I feel about moving Judge over to center full time. Big fella's likely to hurt himself again.

    Is that the plan? Why not Soto left with Grisham in center and Quadtron as the permanent DH per usual? I thought Soto played left.

    I read it was going to be Soto in right, Verdugo in left and Judge in center. Apparently right field is the best place to hide Soto in the field.

    That would be an awesome example of the Yankees overthinking everything. Just like when they refused to ever let Stanton run around in the field and then his legs were stiff as fuck for years on end when he came up to bat and always gets hurt.

    Soto has played two years in left and two years in right including 140 games in left last year. Verdugo is the youngest with experience here and there playing a tougher center field at Fenway and definitely the least valuable of the three. The player you’d be OK with getting hurt the most/have the least invested in.

    So what will the Yankees do? Shuffle them all around into their least comfortable position in the name of analytics.

    Well I read it in the post, so maybe you're right. I'd feel much better about that alignment, obviously. Still, seems like classic Yankees, sacrificing a couple of promising arms for a short term bat. Sure, he's young, but they only have him for next season.

    You're dead on about Stanton, he completely calcified as a DH. Dude was an MVP as an outfielder, he needed to be on the field defensively from the start.

    Prediction time…. Yankees extend Soto during the season, or Mets get him the year after ?

    I think he gets resigned and Stanton gets traded with the Yankees eating all the salary or he gets DFA'd.

    He hits FA, 100% unless the Yankees give him 15/600 in season.

    Ohtani just got 10/700. Soto may get a billion dollar contract

    So, at 300mil…. Does the extra 25 that the dodgers payed really make a difference? If the Yankees were -really - where he wanted to be? F-him, I’d tether sign 3 reliable known pitchers for that.
