Listen: Yankees, Manny Machado, Mets discussed on Tony Paige Show
"WFAN FM New York. AM Tony page before we get to the calls. Let me just express something. We've remember if you see something on the internet doesn't mean it's true. Now, if you see John Hayman or Rosenthal Sherman or a reputable reporter. That's something to consider. Remember, everybody's at the winter meetings. If people adding pieces to the trade if these guys on on their their boots on the ground if they're not talking about it. You know, just because somebody says, I know a friend who was in the elevator with Cashman. He heard him. No, no, no. No, no. It's it's you know, it's the guys who are doing the work with their Lord knows guys are on their cell phones, their nine different cell phones and making all kinds of calls and staying testing, they know. Now this time tomorrow. If the guy's covering Bazeley baseball are starting to put different names in filling out to trade, the Dan you getting somewhere, but just because it's on the internet is like on the internet by who. Cousin Joey who lives in Vegas? And he heard something who who somebody told them somebody who heard it from somebody else and. Just just right now is the rumor is we? To the medicine in the garden of the rumor. Even get done. Me personally way stands right now. Just like OJ, I need some more. That's not enough. This thing you're making the team weaker. And Yankee fans will be met fans would just be besides himself. He turns out to be you know, he has one of those. Eighteen in three years with a one point nine eight one of those things but failed. We just lose their mind. Let's go to Marcus in Greenwich, Marcus, you're on the fan. Hey, how you doing? All right, man. How are you? I'm good. Thanks. So what's this proposed deal? I'm hearing about the Mets. I mean, I heard about the main players, but who would be going won't be going for the Mets on the Yankees. Florida began. Why would they want to do it because he's not resigning them? So they wanna they will not gonna resign. He wants to get something. The those are the only two names. Nobody knows what the rest of the prospects. Everybody's speculating, but those are the names are the only soup that that most of the baseball writers are announcing you'll say they're in the room deal. Resited recipe. Don't know yet. Okay. So so basically, I'm always on listen early. I guess that guy from Florida what start everything up said that that the Mets would get Andrew hoc- that stop this see that. That's just a guy talking. It's not a it's not a writer. So, you know, I know if I said, the Mets are gonna get sunny grades like, well, how do you know? I don't know. I think they're going to get Sonny. Great. It's like this like, no one's, you know, like, I said, if it's not a legitimate writer, just because somebody says, it doesn't mean it, you know, if the writer says he's out there working. But didn't Rosenthal and Heyman. Then they all say that there's some truth that there's something happening. We've seen a three team trade. But not but not those just as two names, not anybody else. They didn't mention anybody else's name. So. Okay. That part still is still being negotiated. I guess I'm just worried about I mean, I don't care what the Mets have the Yankee fan. I could care less. How good I like the metro obsessed not making the Yankees better. I can care less about how good the Mets become I just don't want. I just don't get how the Mets are so delusional with the fact that they want to hold onto the Asians. When I haven't won anything with them. They don't they wouldn't want. They don't want players is. What wins you games, not an eighth pitches? One every fifth game. I mean, what team has won the World Series based on as you have to have position players. First pitching is important in today's game. You need every day players. Yeah. But if you don't have pitching in getting that for. You're not. But if you don't if you don't have the everyday players. It's a it's a balance you need both you need both. But you're gonna you're gonna get rid of a top pitcher. To get a catches it. Okay. Well, he's gonna play every single day. Pacers every five days. Okay. That's understood. But you just made your pitching staff worth. So how does that make you better? Just because he's playing every day. You know, he can only do so much. I understand they have in one with this. But remember we are hasn't been around because he'd been hurt first. Goodyear. Mass is always a question Mark about is know. Kid. He lasted a season. They have the pieces in place. They just for them to get better. They you know, they could write a check for Machado. If you traded Rosario. Nimmo. We're talking about this last week for removed CEO. And then you signed Machado. Well, then you just improved yourself in two spots. And you still have your pitching staff. If this thing comes apart forget about all, you know, people want to other name's trae. Let's just say we're just do what we know removed. So and Syndergaard. That doesn't make any better makes the Yankees a lot better. I'm still trying to figure out what the Yankees get Machado. They're going to have a problem. When he comes back what happened to him. If everybody if and do are still there and Torres is doing well. And who's ever at first base, whatever coming everybody's doing? Well, what do you do with DD? What do you do with them? You make them the D H and say as well those little tender. Do you move the third and what happens to do? Or no, tell me goes to first base because you heard Cashman didn't make sense to put Harper at. I basically has a play first base for. Why would you put that do are there? Let's go to Vernon in Manhattan. Vernon you're on the fan. Hey, tony. How you doing? All right, man. How are you doing good? Caffeine your song. Little bit. You got a new new in the phone booth new in the walkaway? Never you money. Leave the team. New little words, Tony they need to keep Noah Syndergaard walk away from the table. Don't even think about trading him. First of all, I'll bullpen is horrible. Here's a here's another thought God forbid something happens to degrom and he's on this show for a while. So synagogue takes over number one. What if he's synagogues gone who takes over Wheeler? That's true, you know, some tone. I never thought of that. Yeah. The ground get hurt. And now, you don't have. No syndergaard. See, I always talk. If you ask a picture, everybody's shifts down, and it makes them that much stronger. If the if the Yankees where they get Syndergaard CC's, the number six daughter, and you don't you don't have to worry about him. But if you take away one of your top starters. People move up. The guys are moving up on Knesset. It'd be that good. That's true. In the thing is right now. The need to hold onto the pitches. 'cause you know, all the other teams are looking at them. They got their mouth watering. And they know that they get Syndergaard. That's strengthened their pitching staff and one thing I don't want to go to the Yankees. Now, he's at least one. Yes. What talks today? You have a nice day. All right. You're the other thing is excuse me. When everybody reads, the tweets all the writers, no syndergaards available. There's other of my swoop, and like, you know, one of the Mets giving you because I do a better deal. I if you got the prospect, so you got to play the Yankees by one, you know, if I'm Cashman know, I don't have to make a deal on Wednesday. But I can talk. You got let me let me hear what you're offering is going to meet you at Hoboken Dmitri's was happening. Tony what's up, man? How you doing Honduran? How you doing? All right. It looks like the mad scientists and cash from spoken about the the Bryce Harper sweepstakes. Basically kind of said, you know, playing Harper. First base is not just the fires paying close to four hundred. He's never played it, right? And you know, I personally think that was going to start trade. And you know, I think that might be, you know, his bargaining chip. You know, has a China Machado go to third and I wanted to be surprised that they signed that your like a one year keep them at shortstop. You know, he doesn't wanna move towards that to me makes sense because you have enough power. You don't you know, just played a position you only doing it for half a year. And to me if DD comes back, he takes spun Camacho's there, everybody's just getting moved. And I don't know. It's kinda it's kinda put in the Yankees, you know, ninety eight ball if you saw Machado put him out and short, and then say he's having a mossy year like how you gonna put DD right back there. And on that, you know, look, let's. What if everybody's having a good year? What is that? What if what if the bird is comeback player of the year where then what do you do? Yeah. Yeah. You really can't break up the dynamic if they're clicking on all cylinders, and it's just you know, to the point that I just feel like what the next move for cash me. He you could tell like you said, they're not strapped up on. Money's just that they're trying to validate their expenses on what they're gonna do. So you know, it's just comes to the point. Like, I said it's gonna be I think Andrew Har is going to be in play. You know, if he's really personnel Machado. They're probably still on the third sonnets refer, maybe a year, whatever. And they also did he gets back, and he'll be like a utility player is back up there in whole shortstop. But at the same time, it's like I just feel like you need to address starting pitching again. I know we got Paxton, but at the same time as the guy you're gonna get after thirty six year old west three years, like, dude, you know, everybody's retooling the organizations. Let's start young pitching. And you know, situational pitching us. Like, why is Kashmir on advice on the starting pitching or less? You feel like we're going to have a repeat I'm putting all my cards in the bullpen. But there's so much you can use with the bullpens. You don't want to overexert before you had the playoffs. You know? Oh, absolutely. I don't know. Thanks, man. I it's weird. Think about I'm like, it's like, they'll do it is this like I said, I. Last week. If you're if you're trading Syndergaard. I want and what are we getting? The response is supposed to be. Oh my God. Really? We're getting them. We're getting him. You know, it's gonna be knocked my socks off. And I don't SOX is still on Tom in west Babylon time you're on the fan. Tony Finn ain't giving Yankee Syndergaard. And if I am. Frazier. Kenny. NJIT NEW GUINEA him to if they say, no, you know, what you going sunny great. If they say, no, then I walk away from table. GM's got to wake up in the whole team. It's not the GM. It's really your ship. Do you gotta do Tony way? There right now we have the pitching staff these guys out there that week of still roster by writing about writing a check. Thank you. That's that's the thing. I understand why are you trying to get to play as when the aggies? So why why can't you spend money? They don't give me this. I'm tired of this. That's because they don't want to spend the money. Okay. Sorry on somebody else. And get Manny Machado. Want Manny Machado?."
