I will fill in details later, once they become known, but imagine Aaron Judge, Greg Bird, Giancarlo Stanton and Gary Sanchez in the same lineup.
Well, the Yankees traded Starlin Castro & prospects to the Marlins today for Stanton.
More to come.
UPDATE: Stanton for Castro, Jorge Guzman (21, 5-3, 2.30 at short Season Staten Island this year, 88K in 66 2/3 IP), and Jose Devers (17, .245-1-16, 16 SB, SS in rookie and Dominican Summer League Play).
The Yanks will be picking up all but $30mm of Stanton’s deal. Kind of like losing A-Rod’s deal after this year but replacing it with Stanton’s.
But a no-brainer. Lost Castro, so it will be determined who plays 2B. But didn’t give up any top prospects like Adams, Sheffield, Torres, Estrada, McKinney, Frazier, Abreu, Acevedo, German….
as for 2B it could be Gleyber Torres right away, or if he needs a little more time (and 20 more days in the minors means his free agency gets pushed back a year) the Yanks could use Ronald Torreyes or Tyler Wade as a stopgap.
