I cant believe we got rid of Homer and got way better pieces in return. I would have taken a broken washing machine and thought we would have won that trade as long as we got rid of his terrible contract. Great day to be a reds fan

Read the Padres are also in on Realmuto? Like, why though.

Just, for once, hold on to the Robbie Alomars and Trey Turners. Always building great farm systems then wasting it.

Realmuto makes sense, as does Kluber, especially with the depth of the farm.

Padres seem like they are about a year away from making up ground, either one of those pieces would be a nice part of it.

I guess it'll come down to how much the Padres are willing to give. Tatis Jr. should be untouchable IMO.

Honestly, even with the deep pockets, I can see why a team like the Yankees who are loaded with young/prime position players would hesitate to dump a huge contract on Harper or Manny's lap, as great as those guys are.

They still need another left handed bat and don't really have an obvious starting LF, they need a better defensive 3B (and SS for the first half of this season), and they are generating an obscene amount of money right now which they have not so far reinvested in their payroll. I get the argument for only signing one, especially with a seemingly stronger FA starting pitcher class next year which they need to be in on, but there is no reason not to land at least one of them given their age.

Machado could be the second coming of Reggie. Well, without any of the charisma of Reggie.
My money is on the Yankees version of pablo sandoval.

Machado reeks of a player who will get the big payday and then stop trying.

Quite happy if the Yankees get him instead of the white Sox. Not that i was worried the white Sox would get him. I'm worried the white Sox might get harper though.

They should turn it into the 24/7 Chris Russo network and see how many people they kill from excessive blood loss through their eyes and ears.
