    Now, what is next? lol.

    Is that right? If Tanaka opted out after 2017 then Yankees would get about 560k extra for 2018 budget.

    7y/155m = 22.14 AAV without buyout option due to no mention of it.

    4y/88m = 22m AAV.

      The Yankees aren't going to get another starter from the market. Fifth spot will probably be Pineda or Phelps.

    why don't people understand trades have to be agreed on by all teams involved, you can;t just get a guy because you want him.
