Yankees' history didn't lure Stanton, but their future did

Yankees' history didn't lure Stanton, but their future did

Ozuna, who agreed to a one-year contract worth $3.5 million in January and thus avoided arbitration, is not eligible to be an unrestricted free agent until after the 2019 season.

In exchange for Stanton and $30 million, the Marlins acquired second baseman Starlin Castro and two prospects in the low minors: shortstop Jose Devers and pitcher Jorge Guzman, who was ranked as the Yankees' ninth-best prospect by milb.com. "It's just not where we were at that particular time". We were not on his list (of preferred teams), so they were going somewhere else.

"Sometimes things just spiral out of place and you have to find a new home", Stanton said.

He said he stayed away because attending the winter meetings is the job of Michael Hill, the Marlins' president of baseball operations. "We feel like we have a great, young team in place, and now you add the National League MVP, a guy that's obviously in the prime of his career, a guy that's coming off such an wonderful season". He met with both - mainly "to learn what another organization is like", he said - but had no intention of letting Jeter dictate his future. Not that they don't love him as a player. Having those two sluggers relaxed in the middle of their lineup in 2018 is frightening for opposing pitchers and exciting for the New York Yankees and their fans. This was the best deal out of the three for us.

Considering the 28-year-old has never reached the playoffs with the Marlins, it's understandable for him to want to go to a ready-made contender.




Owner Hal Steinbrenner was asked whether star players help to sell the Yankees. "We're comfortably under the threshold with some more money to spend, whenever we deem we want to spend it".

In 2017, when you thought of the New York Yankees, you probably thought of Aaron Judge. "We did all our homework on Stanton", Dombrowski said. With a deep lineup, no one player has to shoulder all of the pressure. Now in 2018, when you think of the Yankees, some will still think of Judge while others will think of Stanton.

"Hey, I'm pumped", Judge said, according to Cashman.

"This is exciting. If you could pull that off, that would be fantastic, " Judge said in response, according to the GM, who was "excited even more so" by Judge's response. It was a major weakness for the Yankees last season as the team's DHs combined for a.235 average, .327 on-base percentage and.429 slugging percentage.
