Mets signed Frazier 2 and 17. Yankees couldn't pony up 8.5 mil a year?

I think the problem was the extra year not the avg salary. They are clearly going for Machado next year and dont want extra money on the books.

Guess the Yankees are just a small market team playing in a big city.

Seriously, they make the Mets look like big spenders

Which is ridiculous. I totally get wanting to get under the luxury tax (kind of), but not wanting 8.5 on the books next year? Come on. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DUQ_FZtUQAAfCgM.jpg:large Yankees down near the bottom. It's embaressing

What will they do with him next year if they think they have a great 3rd basemen ready for prime time?

Sit him on the bench? Trade him (a la Chase Headley)

I doubt it has anything to do with money, they just didn't want to sign him.

You are right they can easily trade that contract but part of this must also be about letting the young guys play this year. Additionally, could be Yanks are still in play for Darvish and didnít want to commit to frazier yet.

This is not a charity organization or an organization that is rebuilding. They are championship contenders.
Unless you're right about Darvish, this is just money grubbing

You're upset about Frazier? Todd Frazier?

I'm upset that they are pinching pennies and haven't signed a major league infielder despite having two spots open and being championship contenders. They dumped an all star's salary (Castro). This is not The Boss's Yankees.

Free agency this year is completely bonkers. No one is getting signed. Pretty sure Cashman has a plan. It's not like they turned down Stanton because he cost too much or anything.

+1.


I don't think the decision not to get Frazier was cheaping out.
