    Yeah, hard to argue, Ozuna, Realmuto and Yelich should be the centerpieces in the rebuilding process, whether as part of the team, or in what they bring back

    Even the Stanton thing could have been played better, not being so open about needing to dump him, and creating some "Maybe we will, Maybe we wont" type buzz

    I get that the contract is insane, especially for a low budget team like the Marlins, but my issue is with Mr Yankee showing up in south Florida and basically giving Stanton to his old team.

    Well they had a deal with the Cardinals and Giants, Stanton just said no. So it's not like the Yankees were his first choice.

    And youd be wrong

    He already had deals worked out with the cardinals and Giants, and it was Stanton who squashed that

    And according to reports, the return from both those teams were similiar to that of the Yankees

    If the Dodgers were interested, he would have landed in LA

    Truth is, Jeter turned to the Yankees AFTER everything else failed

    The no trade clause was a killer. He tried to deal him to the Cards and Giants and Stanton shot it down. Apparently he would only go to 4 teams (Dodgers, Yanks, Houston and Cubs) so Mr Yankee didn't have a choice.

    Pre-steroid Clemens was incredible, no doubt. Unfortunately he was a dick and once he started on the sauce and moved on to Toronto, then NY, then Houston and finally back to NY he forfeited any shot at having a spot on the Red Sox Mount Rushmore.

    I agree, outside of Babe Ruth I guess, any guy (Boggs and Clemens) that played in NY and Boston, need to be eliminated from both Mount Rushmores
