Two more publications have it all figured out.  They know exactly who the Yankees need to trade with to unload Brian McCann. Meanwhile, there has been no indication that the Yankees are gonna do that and if they do, it’s gotta be an incredible deal. Not sure these are… writes that it could be the Astros:


“YANKEES’ MOTIVATION: With Gary Sanchez entrenched as the longterm starting catcher, McCann is the odd man out. He’s currently slotted as the lefty-hitting backup and who will occasionally spell Sanchez against righties and probably often catch CC Sabathia — the pair worked exceptionally well together in 2016. McCann is also owed $17 million a year in 2017 and 2018. He’ll see a lot of time at DH, too, but his numbers don’t profile well at that position. He’s more valuable as a starting catcher. 


 ASTROS’ MOTIVATION: Houston needs a catcher. Jason Castro will be a free agent at season’s end. They could try to re-sign him, but the 29-year-old hit just .210 with 11 homers last year. McCann would be a clear upgrade.”


FOX Sports says it could be the Orioles:

“With Matt Wieters heading to free agency, would the Baltimore Orioles consider a trade with the Yankees for catcher Brian McCann?


 The Baltimore Orioles are at a crossroad regarding Matt Wieters. Their starting catcher for the last eight seasons could be heading to free agency…The bottom line is the Orioles could use a catcher with veteran presence in the clubhouse.”


 Right now I don’t see any of this. I see the Yankees holding onto McCann, having him there for his bat and expertise and helping to mold guys like Gary Sanchez and Austin Romine and to be honest, he’s one of the smarter guys in baseball.  Why the hell would you give that away?  That’s my thinking at least. 

Anyway, I found these 2 nuggets interesting!
