Tuesday afternoon, Patrick Corbin agreed to a contract with the Washington Nationals that is worth an astonishing $140 million over the course of six years. Whether or not there are opt-outs involved is yet to be announced, at the time of this writing. The Yankees, long assumed to be the favorites to land the 29-year-old southpaw, reportedly would not extend their offer beyond five years, with Jon Heyman reporting that the Yanks’ official offer was five years and $100 million. For an extra year and $40 million more, I can’t blame Corbin for picking the Nats and not taking a...

The hot stove is starting to crank up ever so slightly. The Braves made a couple of moves earlier in the week, a flurry of very minor moves around the league have started to happen due to the 40-man draft deadline, and Patrick Corbin is taking his meeting with the Yankees as I am writing this. We’re about to get to the really fun part of the offseason, as I would guess that the marquee free agents will begin to sign as soon as 2-3 weeks from now. The Yankees have talked for a while about the plan to get...

Brian Cashman is at it again. The Yankees made their first major move of the offseason on Monday night by trading for Seattle Mariners lefty James Paxton in exchange for a three-player package, according to multiple reports. The headliner in the return trade is top prospect LHP Justus Sheffield. The Yankees also gave up RHP Erik Swanson and outfield prospect Dom-Thompson-Williams, a person that I had never heard of before this trade. Losing Sheffield is unfortunate, but this is a no-brainer move by the Yankees brass. Sheffield, although he still has plenty of potential, was not impressive in his very...

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 want starting pitching. This is no secret. Brian Cashman said in the end-of-the-season press conference that starting pitching would be a point of emphasis this offseason. It was the biggest single roster hole for the Yankees this year. It’s also not a unique position to be in. Just about every team in Major League Baseball will spend this offseason trying to bring in reinforcements for their starting rotation, even as we are entering the bullpenning age. The Yankees have two guys who are guaranteed to be in the rotation for next season right now: Luis Severino...
