Yanks won't be in a "selling" mode until mid-July. If they are around 10 out by then, then they'll be dumping Chapman and maybe Betances. I doubt they'll get rid of Miller.

Problem is they are still in the Wild Card hunt... as long as they even remotely think they can convince fans they are in the hunt for a playoff spot, they won't likely dump anyone. However, Chapman may be on the block no matter what, but we'll see.

he's a free agent, and that's why he's available. Yanks will fill positions through their youth/farm, and then eventually add 1 or 2 free agents.

They are not, read that as no way, going to raid any future pitching or young players to trade for anyone.

If and when the Yankees were in a "buying" mode, with a real shot of going deep in the playoffs, it will be different.

it's been my view that the Yanks will land Harper; they need a young star for next generation of fans; they have the $$$$ and Harper wants to play on one of the big stages,,,,NY, LA or Boston but I think he can see himself in the Stadium

If it's by straight free-agency then sure, the Yanks will try but they are not giving out 10 year contracts to anyone again.

They will not trade for him, however.

sure was interesting while it lasted for the METS , Collins in playing Joey Joe baseball w/ the injuries , can't believe a guy goes 3-4 or 3-3 & then sits him down to to the lefty / right T thing ???

I'll say it now METS need another starter these arms are good but won't last another playoff back to back

I was at a friend's house on Sunday. Yankees game on. Announcer said that even after all the recent moves the team was still overstocked at DH.

It's ok, when the National League adopts the DH the Yankees will have plenty to trade.

The Yankees don't care about this year at all, Cash finally convinced them to re-tool, which they are in the process of doing.

Not sure Alderson will pull a rabbit out of the hat for the Mets this year like last.

If the NL gets DH I won't care what the Mets do.
