“You are not prepared to say that your superstars are damage inclined. There is no approach the Yankees wish to say that Stanton’s damage inclined as a result of he is acquired seven years to 10 left. They do not wanna say that their nice younger participant [Gleyber] Torres is damage inclined … what are you gonna do in the event you’re the Yankees? Aaron Decide may very well be the face of baseball. Are you gonna give him a [Giancarlo] Stanton-like deal … when he can not keep on the sector?”
