The New York Yankees are used to success so when they get declined on a trade offer, that is something news-worthy.

It has been an eventful offseason for the New York Yankees, even though the past few weeks have been incredibly quiet on the trade front. Besides the incredibly annoying rumors surrounding Gerrit Cole, the Yankees have been practically non-existent.

Going away from the “will they, won’t they” tension surrounding Cole, the Yankees also made some offers to other starting pitchers before. In fact, both offers were rejected, per Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

According to Brink’s article, the Yankees made pretty substantial offers to both the Tigers and the Rays for Michael Fulmer and Chris Archer, respectively. Both offers were promptly declined.

We of course knew that Clint Frazier was a trade chip in every offer placed on the table, but Brink also reported that Tyler Wade and Thairo Estrada were also included in the deal.

Huh…and yet here the Yankees are, still clamoring over a starting pitcher who struggled last year.

Anywho, on a lighter note, the Yankees have been incredibly active on social media this winter and they just finished up a recent poll which asked what fans’ favorite on-field memory was from this season.

To be honest, there were definitely too many to choose from. But of the four choices offered by the Yankees, the fans definitely picked right.

I think I’m going to be watching this every day until the Yankees start up playing the game of baseball again. What a remarkable way to start off a magical playoff run for this team.

And the ridiculous part? The Yankees are expected to be even better this year. So hopefully next season we won’t have to live through the anxiety-inducing Wild Card game.
