The Yankees would be a nice landing spot for Daniel Murphy

Listening to Francesa, he thinks they go after Machado to play short until Didi comes back and then move him to 3rd.  Also thinks they won't be able to resist signing Bryce "he's outta central casting he's perfect!" :(

I think it has almost everything to do with analytics being used by every team. Sorry not that many teams want to pay guys like JD Martinez $200 million anymore, or give the Hosmers of the world 8 year contracts.

Frankly, if you want to give the money back to the players, stop agreeing to make players indentured servants during their peak production years. Rookie year is pre-arb, 2nd and 3rd years are arb years, 4th season the player enters free agency.

I never underestimate the capacity for stupid from a single MLB owner on a marquee free agent. JD Martinez is a very good player, but he's doesn't have any star power. Harper is one of the biggest stars in the game. That shouldn't matter, but all it takes is one owner for it to matter
