Yankees-DJ LeMahieu reunion offers peace to both sides: Sherman

Yankees-DJ LeMahieu reunion offers peace to both sides: Sherman

No
one
objected.
Everyone
held
their
peace.
This
was
a
marriage
that
should
have
continued
considering
how
both
sides
felt
about
each
other.
So
DJ
LeMahieu
and
the
Yankees
found
their
way
to
a
reunion.

The
sides

came
to
an
agreement
on
a
six-year,
$90
million
contract
.
The
structure
matters
to
the
Yankees,
in
particular,
because
they
want
to
keep
the
average
value
low
to
address
other
issues

scream
“starting
pitching”
here

and
still
stay
under
the
$210
million
“luxury
tax”
threshold.

In
the
end,
this
was
a
compromise
by
two
sides
who
enjoyed
their
partnership
the
past
two
years
and
wanted
to
keep
it
going.

LeMahieu
rightfully
wanted
to
outdo
the
four
years
at
$92
million
Josh
Donaldson
received
last
offseason
from
the
Twins
entering
his
age
34
season
and
coming
off
a
strong
year,
but
two
injury-filled
ones
before
that.
LeMahieu
will
be
entering
his
age-32
campaign
off
of
finishing
fourth
and
third
for
AL
MVP
in
his
two
Yankee
seasons.

But
factors

were
working
against
LeMahieu
:
1.
The
pandemic
lowered
revenues
around
MLB
last
year
with
projections
for
more
of
the
same
in
2022,
leaving
many
clubs
either
out
of
the
top
of
the
market
or
expecting
discounts.
2.
Even
those
interested
in
LeMahieu
believed
that
it
was
futile
because,
in
the
end,
the
Yankees
would
step
up
to
get
him.
The
Mets,
for
example,
were
not
engaged
in
any
significant
way.
3.
The
Yankees
were
holding
the
line
even
for
their
best
player
because
they
are
determined
to
drop
below
the
$210
million
luxury
tax
threshold.

Still,
the
Yankees
had
to
give
in
somewhere
because
as
badly
as
LeMahieu
wanted
to
return
to
the
site
of
his
greatest
success,
the
Yanks
also
wanted
to
keep
him.
With
cracking
$100
million
in
total
seeming
less
plausible,
the
LeMahieu
camp
established
$90
million
as
a
must-reach
demarcation.
To
get
there,
the
Yankees
were
willing
to
take
the
age
risk

LeMahieu
turns
33
in
July

by
extending
to
a
six-year
term.

Why?

Because

for
luxury
tax
purposes
,
the
annual
average
of
the
contract
is
counted.
So
a
five-year,
$90
million
deal
would
cost
$18
million
toward
the
payroll
and
a
six-year,
$90
million
is
$15
million.
The
Yanks
project
to
roughly
$30
million
under
the
$210
million
threshold.
So
every
dollar

or
million
dollars

helps
fit
more
into
the
package.
