The Yankees getting him would be like them just punching themselves in the face over and over for no reason.

Hopefully he's gotten over the passed ball yips
He is the back up, so he should be valuable to the pitching staff even when not playing.

Doubt it. Maldonado is widely regarded as a great receiver.

How can you be upset about a catching platoon with the nicknames Chorizo and Machete?

Lol on Maldonado and how he finally ends up with us. Astros offered 2 yrs and $12MM before the season and he signed with KC for 1 yr and $2.5 MM.

Ok. I just remember a whole lot of passed balls last year when he was catching. Hope that is over though it is mostly moot since he'll be backing up Robbie.

I could see Reddick being traded in the offseason, giving Tucker a chance to make the big league club in the spring.

Sell the farm. Let's take this MF back this year.

That didn't happen until the playoffs.

He was nails until the ALCS. That's why it was so odd.

Right or wrong, had we not won in 2017, I'd say do whatever it takes. But we did win in 2017 and have the infrastructure for long term success. I don't want to go "all in" because I don't think it's necessary, especially for rentals. We all saw how hard it was to win a WS. This team as is could sweep their way through the playoffs and I wouldn't be shocked.

Would you trade Tucker if Bum agrees to an extension say maybe 3 yrs with an option? Didn't he say he wanted an extension if traded earlier in the year?

The farm system as thinned? Is that guy serious? lol what a joke of a line.

Come on man you have to admit the team as a whole has thinned since TW left

In my head this is like a PS4 MLB game where you go to the trade room and throw in deals until you get the trade success percentage above 70% and it turns green.

There's no doubt I'd be dealing tucker, Whitley, Reddick and Martin for Mike Trout or Christian Yelich

We have never won the WS when trading for Maldanado at the deadline, therfore I do not like this move!

Not sure I'd disagree with him, especially in RR.

They may already know they won't be able to afford Cole this is an option where they can secure Bum for 3-4 years at a cheaper rate than Cole. I mean do we think Cole gets what 6-7 years at 28-35 mil per? Bum may be worried about the FA market after the Keuchel debacle and that's why he was wanting an extension from whoever traded for him?

Stassi is out of options, so he might be an add-in on a trade.

Not excited about Maldonado. I don't think he does anything that Stassi doesn't. And yes, I base that off his playoff performance last year. When it mattered most, he was trash.

Bum does not want an extension. He wants to be a free agent.

But he's right

Look at what all our young pitchers have done.

Plus you can't include Yordan as the farm

The cupboard is not bare but it's not as full as we thought just a year ago

He essentially is one if he waives his no-trade clause and gets an extension with the trade. Still choosing where he wants to be.

I think MadBum wants a wink nod extension agreement in return for waiving his no trade clause
