Needed a reliever, especially a lefty, so I'm happy to see Britton coming back.

 

Didn't really look like himself last year but hopefully he rounds back into shape coming off that Achilles injury.

I was actually surprised he got the money he did given his injury history. At his best he's as good as any reliever in the game, though, so it could be a great bargain.

The more time goes on, I really start to wonder if the Free Agents are just going to take the big money offers they are getting from lesser teams (White Sox) than the Big Clubs like the Yanks and Dodgers.

Do we even know what they've offered? I know it was reported they made a serious offer to Machado but no details at all other than it's more like $200M than $300m.

I don't know how real any of the offers really are outside of the final one that a player takes to join a team

Rumors are they won't go past 7 years so it's hard to envision them landing Machado or Harper.

that was an unsubstantiated rumor.

 

Landed another top reliever for the White Sox.  Going to be interesting especially in the AL Central

Even with Machado in the mix, the Indians are still comfortably ahead of anyone else in the AL Central

Looks like the Yanks are moving on from Machado after signing LeMahieu.

 

Don't love the signing but it's not for a lot of money and he plays solid defense. 

 

Has always put the bat on the ball which this team sorely needs but his splits away from Coors are concerning.

I'll think he will be fine at Yankee Stadium

LeMahieu should be just fine, if he can handle New York.  The fans there are a bit different than in Colorado.  Reports are that they are still considering Machado, but not more than 5 years.  I could see 5/$175MM from the Yankees.  He wants to play there and they could use him, but not enough to give him the ultra-long contract.

I agree, but the gap closes, and starting with 2020, certainly no later than 2021 at worst there's competition for the Indians and the rest of the AL with the White Sox.
