It's like he promised someone would buy a Corvette and that person bought a Camaro, Mustang, Charger, and a Jaguar.  "Interesting to note that this person doesn't drive any of these cars on Sundays and alternating Thursdays, so..."

More like they went out and bought a Camry and a 92 Ford Explorer

He probably wants more years and I think would cost a draft pick?

I think ulimately DJ plays 2B, Gleyber moves to 3b, Andujar traded or 1B. Tulo SS. If Tulo can't hold up, Gleyber is at SS and Andujar stays at 3B. 

It's actually one of the scenerios Cashman mentioned during the Winter Meetings. Sign a 2B and move Torres over.

Mike Lowell said something about Andujar yesterday on MLBN that I agree with. He would much rather have a player who can hit but struggles in the field , than a guy who can't hit but is a great fielder. He said there is a much better chance Andujar will improve in the field than a guy who can't hit learning how to hit.

100%, the anti-Adam Engel.  He's so damn young, as long as the work ethic is there, he'll get better with the glove.  They also mentioned he was working with Adrian Beltre on his technique, definitely a good guy to learn from.

I'd love to get Andujar. Trade one of our OF prospects for him. Trade a second tier prospect and Abreu for him (Yanks could use a better 1B).
He seems reasonably athletic and should field the position okay in time; and if he can't, he can still hit.

Yeah I think they will shift him to 1B. I don't think Bird and Voit are anything special going forward to be honest.

Yanks can def do better than that if they're dealing Andujar. A guy who can barely play 1B with one season of control and second tier prospect? Really?

Absolutely.  We'd probably have to flash Eloy to get Andujar, which obviously neither side are doing.

I think that the Nats would also be 3rd time tax offenders, so the penalty would be even more stiff should they go over. But, I still think its possible.

When the Rangers signed ARod, the Sox went bargain shopping for their extras and got themselves Royce Clayton.

Okay - whatever.  Sox have the prospect depth to pay a fair price for him.

Speaking of guys who can't hit but are great fielders!

He was a 30+ year old veteran who never could hit.  
Nothing like trading for a young promising player.

The Yankees aren't trading Andujar to the White Sox for anyone except for perhaps Rodon.

It would probably be something along the lines of Robert/Dunning at the very least and that's if the Yankees would only accept prospects which is unlikely. That sound worth it to you?

I don't think it'll be a smart idea on his end.  He'll then have to compete with Arenado.

Just a FYI: There is absolutely no chance Harper goes back to the Nats. That ship has sailed. Please put it to rest. They would have to go way over the luxury tax for his services, have no ability to make further moves, and they already have a loaded team. Nothing to see there.

Dodgers traded for Russell Martin, who is owed $20 mill this season.  Dont what they moved or what the Jays are going to pay down on that contract, but has to have some effect on the Haprer/Dodgers talk.

Agreed.  Boras is using the Nats to drive up the price on the Phillies, and the Nats are happy to oblige to make Harper as expensive as possible for their division rivals.

23 year old with an .855 OPS (126 OPS+), don't think they'll roll with a depth package.

 I wouldn't call Robert and Dunning a fair price.
Like I said, I'd pay a fair price if the Sox still need a 3B.
Or another young 3B top  3B prospect.   Beats signing moustakas.

Regarding 126 OPS+, the Sox just let a 120+ catcher go for 2 years of  relief pitcher; He too is defensively challenged
