BBWAA awards finalists being announced on MLB Network

Brian Cashman is scheduled to speak to the media in about an hour. Not sure he’ll have much in the way of news, but we’ll find out.

For now, flip over to the MLB Network where the finalists for the BBWAA awards are being announced. You all know the BBWAA awards — MVP, Cy Young, that sort of thing — and this year the awards are being televised, beginning with tonight’s show to basically announce which players finished among the highest vote getters.

All votes had to be sent on the final day of the regular season — I had a Cy Young vote this year — so these finalists aren’t going on any sort of ballot, it’s more of an early acknowledgement of which players finished in the running, with the winners being announced night-by-night next week.

    Would be happy to hear that Hiroki Kuroda has accepted the qualifying offer, that the Yankees are inching closer to a deal with Rivera and that Pettitte has made a decision to pitch one more year.

    Oh, and that he and Kevin Towers have dinner plans this evening.

    Warning Track,

    Are you saying no to Hamilton or no, at that price? I don’t expect him to get more than four or five years.
    —————————————————————————————————————-
    I am saying NO to Hamilton, respectfully of course, LOL!!!

    Honestly, saying NO to Hamilton should be easy based
    on the asking price and length of the contract.
    Not worth the risk!

    I heard Mike Adams talking about Hamilton on the radio a day or two ago. He said the issue is which Hamilton will show up on any given day. Not a ringing endorsement.

    Anyway, Upton is going to be there. Right?

    Lets expound on our pipe dreams.

    Trade Romine,Nova, Austin, Nunez for Justin Upton
    Trade Granderson for Anthony Rendon
    Sign Rivera
    Sign Hughes (3/25)
    Sign Kuroda
    Sign Pettite
    Cano accepts a 6/120 extension
    Sign Soria (1/5)
    Sign Scutero
    Sign Ichiro 1/8

    Jeter SS
    Ichiro RF
    Cano 2B
    Tex 1B
    Upton LF
    Arod 3B
    Ibanez (or whoever ) DH
    Catcher
    Gardner CF

    You’d have still Sanchez, Heathcott, Williams, and Rendon as all top 50 guys and all hopefully knocking on the door between 2014 and 2015

    @Buster_ESPN: Others in the organization thought that Bauer really needed to focus on pitching in lower half of the strike zone; he didn’t.

    Blake-

    Nice wish list.

    Why does Towers need Romine. He has Montero?

    Do the Yankees have any such academies?

    2 elite seasons, he OPS’d .899 4 years ago. I don’t see how they work out an extension for Upton that pushes his AAV to 14. Even if he takes a premium extension of 3 years / 45 million his AAV only rises to 10. He won’t get 20 million per year because he is coming off a down year. It is most likely he will not even ask for an extension, and actually it would be in the Yankees FAVOR to force him to the bargaining table now when they can buy low on him.

    I thought we worked out that if a contract is altered, the AAV starts being calculated from the time of the alteration/trade? It basically becomes a new contract. Otherwise you would just extend many players you wanted to keep a little early because the AAV would be lower (if their previous salaries were lower).

    The CBA says that signing the player to a new contract while he is under contract (aka extension) means the AAV is calculated from the first year of the previous contract. If trading a player messes with that then it will be quite easy to run his AAV up to 14 because he makes 9,14,14 on the rest of his deal.

    Lots of rumors of player movement. None about anyone moving toward the Yankees.

    @Joelsherman1: Strong feeling here Justin Upton will be dealt #Rangers a frontrunner. Watch #Rays, interesting because losing his bro BJ to fr agcy

    @Joelsherman1: #Rangers looking at C and pen, and do like Russell Martin #Yankees

    Justin Upton’s no-trade list last year included the Yankees, Red Sox, Indians, and Cubs, but Diamondbacks General Manager Kevin Towers now says that the no-trade list is made up of four new teams, tweets Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic. Towers said that it won’t keep him from speaking with those four teams and he has even had talks with one of them already (Twitter link).

    If they are in fact new teams (as in different) then that would mean the Yanks are off and that’s good
