The Sonny Gray trade to Cincinnati is officially official, the Yankees announced on Monday. He signed, basically, a three-year extension and the trade went through. The final deal is Sonny Gray and LHP Reiver Sanmartin-whom I’ve never heard of-to Cincy for 2B Shed Long (Reds’ No. 7 prospect according to and a Competitive Balance Pick in the draft, which will be in between the first and second rounds. The Yankees pulled a fast one, though, immediately sending Long to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for 21-year-old center fielder Josh Stowers, who was the No. 10 prospect in Seattle’s system,...

All offseason, Brian Cashman has made it abundantly clear that he intended to move RHP Sonny Gray when he received a worthwhile offer. It’s taken longer than many expected, but it seems that Cashman has finally found a package he likes. The Yankees are now set to send Sonny Gray to the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for Cincinnati’s No. 7 prospect 2B Shed Long and a competitive balance draft pick (CBP). The hold up right now is that the Reds are trying to sign Sonny Gray to an extension beyond 2019 so they get more than one year of control...

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...

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...

We all know that the Yankees made a move to land 31-year-old outfielder Andrew McCutchen from the San Francisco Giants following Thursday night’s irritating 8-7 loss to the Detroit Tigers. I have a few thoughts on what this means moving forward. The Yanks just got a lot better. While Cutch is nowhere near his MVP-days, he is still having a very productive season. He’s slashing .255/.357/.415 (115 wRC+) overall, with 15 homers while playing his home games in spacious AT&T Park. I’d be lying if I said I was watching a lot of Giants games this season, but I imagine...
