Listen: New York Yankees, Manny Machado, New York Mets discussed on JR
"Station. Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six and as I said, it's gonna jury outside. It's dampening the holiday mood. It may be dampening spirits. Our local teams may not be helping too much on the other hand, we have the I wanna call them the New Jersey Nets. But people will get mad at me. The Brooklyn nets who have won seven games in a row. The last time they probably did that they were actually probably still playing out at the Meadowlands. And then as I said it's kinda dreary right now for the jets and giants they are waiting to end this season. They no more bright spots for the jets and giants they're going to have to wait until the traffic. They're going to have to wait until free agency. If your name is Todd Bowles, you already know Christmas is going to be. Bittersweet for you. You're going to be on your way out of the door. And then when you look at the Yankees and Mets these guys gone shopping, Brody van wagon, and he's actually going out and doing work training for Robbins casino. Bring in Diaz who who can help save a lot of the New York Mets games later on. So the the Yankees and Mets did doing work. There's still a lot left to do in a season Machado was running around on his tour right now. He was in the Bronx yesterday hanging out in Yankee Stadium for ninety minutes today. He was in Philadelphia at citizens Bank ballpark reportedly for four hours for his own sake. I hope four hours of meetings leads to three hundred million dollars worth of contracts that he will sign, you know, but as we all can pretty much assume and presume by now. All of that money is not gonna come from the New York Yankees. And I've been listening to to a lot of the shows earlier today Machado is the hot topic people are saying, hey, you know, the Yankees need to bring in Machado's. Some people are saying the Yankees don't need to bring in this. No, Johnny hustle guy. And it's it's real interesting to me in my opinion. Look if I'm sitting in a meeting for ninety minutes, and we're talking about me sticking around for six years. Maybe ten years presumably, the Yankees don't want to give this guy saying years. I'm going to say, it's a bad meeting ninety minutes and then dinner in the evening. No, I'm going to look at a four hour meeting and say, hey, they really try to impress the living hell out of me. And it's the New York Yankees. What more do you need to say? What are you going to say and ninety minutes are you gonna take Manny Machado to monument park? Like like, what do you need to do to impress this guy? Everything is pretty much there. But when it boils down to whether or not. Manny Machado needs to be a New York Yankee, I think he's a luxury for the Yankees. This is another case or another instance of the rich getting richer, the Yankees don't need. Manny Machado, the Yankees need pitching in my opinion, before they solidify themselves as more than a World Series concentre if they want to move towards unseating the Red Sox towards being a legitimate favorite for the World Series. One hundred games was great last year for the New York Yankees. But one hundred wins did not win them a World Series. We know they have the bats. We know the bats swing and miss. You know, you have Stanton. You know, you have judge guys when you're seven feet tall eight feet tall. And you swing a bat. You're going to be more susceptible to the long ball. But also more susceptible so going out there and striking out. So the Yankees need help with the bats to even things out. We know. Gregorious is going to be out for God only knows how long maybe he comes back in in July, maybe June. Hopefully, he's not out all the way until August. And these are problems that most teams in major league baseball. Lots of have we have too many outfielders. We have too many power bats. We have too many righties. Oh last year. We only won one hundred games these are problems. If you are the New York Yankees, but in my opinion, and I think the Yankees a steadfastness. This isn't George Steinbrenner running the Yankees right now the Yankees have options and they're being prudent. They are taking their time as opposed to you know, George Steinbrenner waking up one day a fifteen. Eighteen years ago and saying, you know, what I want to give Gary Sheffield a check today just because I want to right fielder. This is not where the New York Yankees are. And I think they are making the correct decision in taking their time. I must tell you as a New York Yankees fan. I don't care if the New York Yankees Manny Machado right now, if they get them good if he doesn't come in great as well. Because what happens in this off season for the New York Yankees. What's left to happen is not going to further dictate? What happens in the postseason? I'm gonna explain this. Okay. We are in December, folks. Okay. This saying that Manny Machado will not make his decision on so possibly January. I'm going to tell you the New York Yankees have enough assets. That are still on the team that will last them between now and the trade deadline in the summertime. We'll help put them into. A position to compete for a title. If I'm the New York Yankees if I don't get many Machado. Figure out a stopgap. Unfortunately, one of those stopgaps is off the board in Dan, you Murphy, he's going to go out to course, feel and he's probably going to resurrect even more his bat. You're going to see New York Mets playoff version. Daniel Murphy before he walked away and took a contract in Washington or the medicine and tender him what Gress the New York Yankees should worry about stopgap. They have enough offense. They didn't maintain some of the assets. There's no need right now to say, hey, we're going to trade Miguel. And do you don't need to do that right now sunny gray today right now is somewhere he may be in his pillow crying tears, not knowing on what team he's going to go to. I don't know if Brian Cashman hurt his feelings enough an off season Sonny gray is still an asset to the New York Yankees. He will eventually be traded. Clint frazier. We didn't see a whole hell of a lot of Clint Frazier. Last season. Unfortunately, he's had a suffer from symptoms from concussion. But Clint Frazier was a coveted bat when he was with the Indians when he initially came over to the New York Yankees. This is not a dude who's even probably gotten to his prime. And then you still have guys like Aaron Hicks who's entering the final year for his contract. Greg bird. You know, there may be some soccer team that looks at Greg bird. And and may think you know, what this is an opportunity for us to bring in that left handed. Swing into art scene. We can go ahead and get him, healthy and fix them. So if you're the New York Yankees Machado last year to ninety seven batting average thirty seven home runs. You know, he goes out there and hits drives in one hundred and seven runs in the World Series. Okay. He batted four for twenty two. Okay. I mean, we can't necessarily kill guys when they're facing some of the best pitchers in the major. That's the World Series. You're not out there playing against the fifth star. So in my opinion, salad speaks. This is all sports. Manny Machado may be accused of coming out. I don't hustle this. Don't hustle that many Machado. If you listen to Mr. yelich National League MVP, he's a dirty player at the end of the day it boils down to what you will do to help the team win games and not be a distraction off the field. And I'm sorry to say for anyone who looks at the ethical side of things and doesn't want Manny Machado won the Yankees. But numbers taught we know what many Machado will do over the course of one hundred and sixty two games. That's hit thirty home runs. That's Dr in ninety two one hundred and that's to eighty it doesn't matter. Whether he's gonna play third base. It doesn't matter whether or not he's gonna play shortstop. But if there's one point that everybody has to understand. It doesn't matter. If the Yankees, bring them in or feet sakes that big old check and goes down to Philadelphia or maybe he says I want to play on the south side of Chicago. Maybe Manny Machado says I want to play for the White Sox at that point. You really know. It's all about the money. I don't I don't know why anybody would want to necessarily go play for the White Sox. And Hello to all my friends out in Chicago. But that's just a fact of the matter by all indications Manny Machado wants to be a New York Yankee the New York Yankees want many Machado. But if I'm a Yankee fan, I'm not mad if they don't get him. He is not a necessity. New York Yankees before you know, it it may not be this off season where they've gotten James Paxton you have to remember they're going to get Jordan Montgomery back at some point this upcoming season and sunny gray is going to get flipped. You're not gonna see Sonny gray pitching for the New York Yankees. So if you're a Yankee fan if he doesn't end up if Manny Machado does not end up under the tree if you don't open that gift and Manny Machado is not there do not fret. The Yankees are not finished building the New York Yankees in regards to adding pitchers in regards to adding assets and regards to protecting the lineup and protecting the infield. This is all going to play out between now and the summertime, and I would mention to tell you the New York Yankees will go out there and compete in the American League east with or without Manny Machado. Do you think? The New York Yankees need Manny Machado, or is it an embarrassment of riches. I don't think Manny Machado really makes all that much difference. Because as we've seen time and time again, you can go to the playoffs. But the bats don't stop the other teams from scoring you need pitching. And that's what the New York Yankees will go out and get it may not be today when you want it it may be in March. It may be in may it may very well be in June and July by the time we roll to the trade deadline to the Yankees need. Manny machado. It is JR on the fan. You can find me online at JR sport.
