After coming within one win of the World Series, the Yankees traded for a decade of the Marlins' $325 man
Let’s go back to December 2017 for an oral history of the trade which landed the Yankees the reigning NL MVP with quotes from the prominent people involved in the actual deal.
The 26-year-old star would have been a luxury for the Yankees, which is what they used to add to the team
I can stop constantly checking to see if the Yankees signed one of the 26-year-old star free agents after the Padres signed him to a 10-year, $300 million deal.
Number 42 is now a Hall of Famer after being named the first unanimous selection in history
One day I will tell my kids about the guy who threw one pitch and got everyone out, but I don’t expect them to believe me when I tell them about Mariano Rivera.
The two 26-year-old generational stars are still free agents and now the Yankees are over the luxury-tax threshold
Now that the Yankees are over the luxury-tax threshold, they might as well do what everyone hs expected them to do for the last three years with this free-agent class.
What started as the Yankees getting two-and-a-half years of control for a potential ace, ended with Gray pitching to a 4.51 ERA in 195 2/3 regular-season innings for the Yankees to go along with a loss and no-decision in two postseason starts.
The Yankees re-signed one of two necessary pieces of their bullpen
The moment David Robertson signed with the Phillies, the Yankees were going to sign Zach Britton. They didn’t have a choice.
The dominant reliever has left the Yankees for the second time in his career
I thought after Robertson returned to the Yankees he would be a Yankee for as long as he continued to pitch the way he always had. But four years after the Yankees let him leave, they have let him leave again.
The low-risk, high-reward deal is a move Yankees fans should be happy about
For now, the addition of Tulowitzki is a move Yankees fans should be happy with. That happiness might not last depending on how the rest of the Yankees offseason goes.
It's time the Yankees released the worst player in the team's history
Given contract and performance, Jacoby Ellsbury is the worst player in the history of the Yankees. The Yankees need to stop trying to salvage any part of his deal and eat the remaining $47 million-plus owed to him.
The Yankees could sign two 26-year-old superstars and all it will take is money
The Yankees weren’t good enough to win in 2017 or 2018. They can change that in 2019 by signing two generational talents. But to do so, they need to start acting like the Yankees again.
