    It sounds like they could have but opted for more salary relief - the rumor is that the Rays and Astros offered more talent.

    This is what tanking looks like. When they gave away Jay Bruce for nothing, it became obvious that they're going to minimize payroll and lose a lot of games. Encarnacion still hits homers, and he will be a good DH/PH for the Yankees, who will now ditch Kendrys Morales, who will be a stopgap for a bad team, maybe even the Mariners.

    Except they're sending money to the Yankees. They aren't getting a whole lot of salary relief.
    Things can always be worse.

    Well I guess the other teams wanted them to send more money? But yeah, I think swampdragon is spot-on with the reasoning for this deal.
