Why aren't the Yankees mentioned in that tweet?

They already have a power hitting 3b and a hole at SS for this year.

Imagine because they're set on the left side of their infield without Machado

Yankees don't need him. They've got Andujar at 3B.

Which is exactly why them chasing MM is so silly to begin with. Also, it's good to be back...my account KidMcCarthy from over 14 years ago was not able to be recovered it appears.

Well, Manny > Andujar > Moose. And they'd be able to deal Andujar for pitching or move him to 1B. Plus, they're trying to get Manny on their terms. They could get him if they really wanted him.

 Agreed. But pitching should be their top priority. Their infield is pretty dang solid. They are projected to win like 98 games after winning 100 last year. Crazy.

Welcome back. You must be rusty . I hope you realize that Manny Machado and Mike Moustaskas are both MM .

Signing Moustaskas after missing out on Machado would be so much worse than just missing out on Machado. Please don’t.

Any owner not giving their front office enough payroll flexibility to sign *Mike Moutakas* deserves to be scorned.

An owner giving the FO money to sign moustakas deserves to be scorned.

That's not really fair, he's not a bad player, if your team has a gaping hole at 3b he's a solid player and he can probably DH and play 1b sometimes and be a pretty good 5th or 6th hitter. Out of last year's playoff teams he'd dramatically outperform what Boston got at 3b for example, due to injury in no small part. If someone like the Angels wanted to keep trying to win next year, he'd be a huge upgrade at that position. 

The problem is - he's not all that much better than Yolmer. Going from Engel and Yolmer to Jay and Moustakas might well have been enough for us to get to 63 wins last year.
