Yanks got intl money in Gray deal, plus intl money from Orioles. Stars aligning for Otani in the Bronx?
Paul Swydan
3:20
I guess we'll see.
Marcus Banks
3:20
I wanted Gray but am disappointed to see Fowler go.  Really wanted him to come back strong in a yankee uni after what happened to him
Paul Swydan
3:21
Yeah, that was definitely a sad story. But the bottom line is that the Yankees already have a crowded OF, and his best chance at legit playing time in the next year is in Oakland.
Uncle Rico

Looks like not signing EE in the offseaon is biting the Red Sox in the bum bum.  He would be leading the team in almost every offensive category....
Travis Sawchik
3:21
Paul, I am ready to take the baton
Paul Swydan
3:21
Yeah, that would have been nice. It'd be easier to swallow not signing E5 if they had made any headway on an extension for Betts, Bogaerts or Bradley. But here we are and they have done none of those things.
3:22
OK, you are all in good hands with Travis!
Talk to you later!!!
Travis Sawchik
3:22
Not sure about that!
Adam
3:22
Are we well past the "kicking the tires" stage of trade chatter?
Travis Sawchik
3:22
Ha. Quite possibly we are beyond that

Seems like a case where the A's got a good potential haul but it still feels like the Yankees made out like bandits.
Travis Sawchik
3:23
I like it for both clubs. But I like it from the Yankees' perspective a little bit more as they kept their top young assets, and now have improved their  division and postseason odds

NYY fan here. can someone explain why this isn't a steal for yanks? 2/3 of this return has potentially career ending injuries
Travis Sawchik
3:26
Cashman has done very well at the last two deadlines
3:27
To get Gray without surrendering a top 50 overall prospect in the game is solid work
Erik
3:28
Given the injuries for Kaprielian and Fowler, there has to be a decent chance that the deal gets cancelled after the A's find something they don't like in their physicals, right? Or does that only happen for the Orioles?
Travis Sawchik
3:28
Is this like buying a house? If the injuries are disclosed and you still hit 'accept' its yours?
A's take on a ton of risk but upside, too
3:29
I guess I'm a little surprised there wasn't a better deal out there
LeBron
3:29
Thoughts on the tribe and joe smith?
Travis Sawchik
3:30
I thought the Indians needed another bullpen piece and Smith is striking out 35% of batters. For me, he's a better No. 3 than Shaw, he's an upgrade
I haven't seen the cost yet, though
New Bork
3:30
Lets not forget that Sonny Gray has an extensive history of no being healthy. Maybe there just wasn't that much more out there.
Travis Sawchik
3:30
Apparently there was not an overwhelming market
The Yankees got more back for two relief pitchers, and one was a rental, last season
Sean
3:31
I told Paul I wanted you in the chat. He replied with "I bet you want a back rub too." Does this mean you're supposed to give me a back rub?
Travis Sawchik
3:31
Not included, sorry
Al Avila
3:31
Just so you know, Travis, I am going to trade Iglesias to Arizona
Travis Sawchik
3:31
How could you trade your OWN son?
3:32
Was Alex Avila a first born son?
Joe
3:32
Alex Avila was the first born!
Travis Sawchik
3:32
Incredible. Ha.
Fly Birds Fly
3:32
Pirates should be unloading
Travis Sawchik
3:33
I'd be trying to unload some 'B' pieces like Nicasio, Watson and Freese
But this isn't a great sellers market, apparently
JT
3:34
Who even trades for Darvish at this point? Doesn't seem like Dodgers want to give up Buehler/Verdugo. Maybe dark horse like Royals?
Travis Sawchik
3:34
I wonder how much of a discounted price the Rangers are willing to move him for at this point
3:35
If the Dodgers aren't going to budge ... ?
