    We don't really have the pool money available to compete for those guys.

    Doesn't come out of this years pool though, IIRC. I saw some names tied to our SOX but don't really know any besides this dude the Angels just got.

    From what I read, the Angels made a trade to acquire more pool money to make this signing, so I have no idea which year's pool it comes from. Either way, I don't think the Sox had enough to land Maitan.

    Marlins send $1 million in international slot money and Dee Gordon to the Mariners in exchange for 3 minor leaguers.

    Interesting; especially after the Dee Gordon move.

    I can't imagine the Scioscia-path is gonna let Ohtani do a lot of the stuff he wants to, regarding hitting and pitching, but who knows...

    Stanton has to stay healthy and adjust to the AL, Judge has to prove he’s not a flash in the pan. :shrug:

    Patient Yankees fans are not in favor of this.

    OTOH, ownership has enough money to keep this from burning them.

    Rick Hahn is truly a thief (heh HeH), considering this shitty haul.

    Highly doubt there are too many Yankee fans who are upset about this.
    The Marlins main objective was to shed salary, didn't care much about what they got back. Plus they'll be able to flip Castro.

    Yeah don't see why Yankees fans would not want this deal. I know two big Yankees fans and they like the deal.

    Not sure what the Marlins end game is, do they want to tank and rebuild through the draft? Or is this another Loria type situation where they want to spend as little as possible and then flip the team for a profit down the line? It also kind of seems like Jeter doesn't know what he's doing.

    I think for starters they just want to afford the team. Don’t seem to care about on field success, priority 1 is re-collecting some money.

    Seems like it's going to be a bad several years for the Marlins

    I think ineptitude has to come into play. The Dodgers had a new ownership group and suddenly become contenders. Honestly, they got played by both the Yankees and Stanton.
