Remember when the Yankees hinted Nolan Arenado was the real prize?


When it became clear that the Yankees weren't going to sign Manny Machado, the team leaked that Nolan Arenado was actually their third base target. The Bombers would give Miguel Andujar one more year to show he could grow at third base before deciding if they needed a legitimate replacement. Now that replacement is off the board, making true a painfully obvious forgone conclusion. Never wait for next year, and never believe strategically placed leaks.
