      The mistake was not dumping Cashman 10 years ago.

        Very interested to see what Matthew Blake does with Andrew Heaney. He’s always off the charts by advanced metrics (104 Stuff+, 107 Command+, top 25 K-BB), has high spin, low slot 4-seamer, and has underperformed his estimators. Tough park, but maybe some clay here to be molded.
        I needed a good laugh today and this provided it.

          One week ago today, the Yankees had no realistic chance chance of even making it to the world series.
          Today, after Cashman's genius at play, the Yankees still have no realistic chance chance of even making it to the world series, but with 5 less prospects. Most importantly, Hal doesnt have to pay any luxury tax.
          A fool and his money can throw one heck of a party!

            What is the romance with Heaney? Am I missing something? what does he offer? Junk, despite weird name and bless him for enduring that, projects to be much better.

                So we traded Junk for bigger Junk!

                  I'm excited about the improvement in defense and offense. Should be worth 5-10 wins extra....given the circumstances it's about the best we could have done

                      Yes, these two areas are where the team has really under performed. If these guys stay healthy and start doing what they can all do, then it'll be up to the pitching.

                      All in all, the team is better, and the future is no worse.

                        IMO the Blue Jays improved themselves immensely with Jose Berrios.

                          Every year Cash does one of these trades and they never work out....Junk has a top shelf arm, too good to be in a deal for a journyman type...Also don't sleep on Elvis, Big kid who has room to improve...BAD DEAL IMO.

                            Given the Yankee track record of developing prospects, I have zero issue with these trades.
                            Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

                              I'd undo this trade if it were up to me, but less because of Junk and more because Heaney as a rental in the midst of an atrocious year doesn't seem to make sense at all.

                              Junk may have a top shelf arm, but Heaney was a top 25ish prospect when he was called up. The odds of Junk having a career at all or event one as mixed as Heaney are pretty slim I'd think.

                                Are you saying with the benefit of hindsight, or without? I don't think you're finding a GM that is going to trade a guy who won't be a FA for 5 more seasons, is making reasonable $$ in arb, hit a HR every ~10 AB last season to lead league and had a 156 sOPS+ last season, can hit RHP and LHP and hit situationally, in spite of the bad defense.

                                One of the best things Manfred could do is to get support for universal DH this offseason. By doubling capacity there, maybe you can add some cash and deal Stanton and put Voit at DH. Or, less desirable, trade Voit to address other needs.
