The Yankees made the JA Happ signing official on Monday, announcing that the organization has signed the 36-year-old southpaw to a 2 year deal with a vesting option for the third year in 2021. The full terms of the contract have not yet been announced, at the time of this writing, but we had heard when they agreed to the terms last week that it was 2 years, $34M ($17M per year) and it would be another $17 million if the contract vests. I’ll assume those remain the terms. The third year will likely vest as long as Happ maintains...

Ken Rosenthal made a rare blunder this morning when he reported that the Yankees and free agent lefty JA Happ had come to an agreement on a three-year deal. He soon backtracked saying that they seemed to be heading in that direction, but nothing is yet decided. There's been kind of a flurry of conflicting reports on this thing. We heard that Happ and the Yankees are close and it's inevitable and we've also heard that Happ has several offers and whoever caves on offering him the third year of a deal will earn his services. It's been a really...

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...
