It effectively means they're out of the Harper/Machado race. So, good for my Phillies.

Why?

The goal is to get under the luxury tax to reset the penalties, not to stay under it forever.

You are probably right. Harper's left handed bat would've looked very good in New York. I think a guaranteed Stanton is better than a chance at either of the guys you mentioned. I think it is the right move.

Maybe I am wrong, but Didi is the one that this move will set up to have a monster season, right?

They will still make a serious play for Machado.

Idk if this means they're out on machado, but I can't see them signing Harper at all now.

Definitely good for the Phillies, but can't count the Yankees completely out. I still believe the Yankees can be on another level financially from all of the other teams if they want to be.

Yea, good move by Yankees. No guarantee on Harper ,but still have a shot at Machado.

Where do guys see Stanton GEM's leveling off a before spring? 1k? I've got a couple. I imagine a few others do to. Sell now or wait?

I could see Machado being dealt to the Yankees for Jordan Montgomery and others.

Depends on one's financial positioning. I think the optimum buying window was the last two weeks, if the cards weren't acquired much earlier on the cheap. As to selling, one could take a small profit in spring— yet one could also go long, as if he swats lots of homers and helps the Yanks win a title, his key card will soar.

I think this might be the final nail in the coffin for me in supporting this dumpster fire of a franchise
