Any team with the talent of Gary Sanchez is likely to be receptive of his talents at putting baseball’s a million feet away in a matter of seconds. Of course the fact he is still pre-arbitration helps the Yankees payroll immensely. But that doesn’t detract from the fact that the Bronx Bombers are spending on average nearly $1.5m less than the average Major League franchise and have a 0.4 better average WaR for the pleasure. Probably best to re evealuate this one, once #IamGary signs a contract!
