  The Yankees signed Luis Severino to an extension Friday morning, just in the nick of time to avoid the arbitration hearing that was scheduled for later in the day Friday. The deal has a base of four years and $40 million, buying out his four arbitration seasons. There is a fifth-year club option on the contract, which would be his first free agent season. The deal can max out at $52.25 million over the next five years (thru 2023), according to Joel Sherman and Jeff Passan.   This is a great thing for the Yankees, who get to avoid...

The offseason is far from finished, but Spring Training is now one month away, and there is a more than zero percent chance that the New York Yankees have completed their major offseason transactions. The team you start the season with is never the team you end the season with, but it is about time we project the opening day lineup if the season were to hypothetically start tomorrow. With Didi Gregorius out and Manny Machado and Bryce Harper seemingly out of the picture, who would be on that Opening Day 25-man crew? This is a long blog, so I'm...

It wasn’t all that big of a surprise, but on Thursday it was reported that reliever David Robertson would leave the Yankees once again to sign a two-year contract (with a team option for a third year) with the Philadelphia Phillies. I’ll miss D-Rob. A lot. As the offseason went on, it seemed like this was inevitable, though. Particularly when you look at the terms for which he signed coupled with how quickly the Yankees wrapped things up with Brett Gardner and CC Sabathia (and JA Happ, if you consider that quick), the fact that D-Rob hadn’t signed yet and...

The New York Yankees agreed to a one year deal with 38-year-old lefty CC Sabathia. The deal is reportedly worth $8 million for his final season and will contain no incentives. It sounds like CC learned his lesson with incentives after the “that’s for you, bitch!” game. The big fella was adamant about wanting to return to the Yanks, where he is among the longest-tenured players with Brett Gardner. He is one of the biggest leaders in any clubhouse in baseball, and he has my unconditional love forever. As many as three non-Yankees teams reportedly reached out to Sabathia. Ken...

The New York Yankees agreed to terms with Brett Gardner on a one-year deal worth $7.5 million for 2019 on Wednesday. Oct. 31 was the deadline to decide what to do about the team option on Gardy’s contract. The Yankees had two options: Pick up the team option: Brett Gardner earns $12.5 million for the 2019 season Decline the team option: Brett Gardner receives a $2 million buyout and becomes a free agent The Yankees opted for the latter but immediately re-signed Gardner to the aforementioned $7.5 million deal. As I understand it, the move saves the Yankees $3 million...
