There is all that noise that Machado wants to play SS next year though. What then?
Didi to 2B, Machado to SS, Torres to 3B? I'm kidding, of course.
Anything's possible. Lol
People think Harper is out the question, especially with word being that Machado wants to be a Yankee bad.
My thing is....if Miguel & Gleyber come in this season show something real nice, I think Cashman would be salivating at the fact of putting Harper in the OF with Judge & Stanton & rotating them all from RF,LF & DH.
A true baseball big 3.
Also, Harper is a lefty that can help balance the lineup out.
You have to get rid of Ellsbury...I also think its a pipedream we get Harper now. I really do, that guy may just do it and we become the Golden State of the MLB, just like the old days...But lets give our kids a chance too lol
I mean, next season - Ellsbury would be easier to move with just 2 seasons left. Though, there's been talk of getting him to Arizona (he has a home there) within these next few weeks if Arizone loses JD Martinez. With Yankees paying half of his contract.
Either way, Gardner expires after this season, so we wouldn't have to get rid of Ellsbury per say.
I'm all for letting our kids play. I'm also here for baseball domination. If there's a chance to nab him, we'd have to at least sit back & think about it. We're going after some big FA(s) next offseason. But at the end, we have to wait for this coming season to play out 1st.
Never know what may happen. Injuries can change everything for a player.
