Yankees brand Red Sox as the Warriors of MLB

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman appeared in awe of the rival Red Sox on Tuesday, saying the club is the Warriors of Major League Baseball after its acquisition of pitcher Chris Sale.

So what has Cubs skipper Joe Maddon done since winning the World Series? He's bought a new sports car, seen "Hamilton" on Broadway and visited the Yogi Berra Museum, which he found ... surprising.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said that he has offers on the table to both Aroldis Chapman and Kenley Jansen. Since Cashman has said this publicly, I would suspect he is making it known to try to exert a little leverage over the team's first choice, Chapman. Chapman would not cost the Yankees their first round pick, while Jansen would.

Red Sox manager John Farrell on Yankees GM Brian Cashman calling Boston "the Golden State Warriors of baseball" after acquiring Chris Sale: "It's going to be important for our guys to buy into us as a team; to understand that we are working towards a championship. That's going to require certain players accepting their roles. As long as their focus is what's best for our team first and not individual players we should be okay"

After Brian Cashman called the Red Sox the "Golden State Warriors of baseball," I asked the GM what the Yankees were, "I don't know," Cashman said. "I couldn't tell you. If it is the NBA, we're in the pack of contenders looking to take Golden State down. That's a good question."

The best indication that Edwin Encarnacion isn't getting the offers he's looking for: Agent Paul Kinzer telling teams there's no hurry to get him signed. Indians, Rockies interested. But Red Sox appear "very unlikely."

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees GM Brian Cashman said on SiriusXM that Aroldis Chapman "is going to be costly. We're prepared to a degree to compete for that."Chapman told ESPN he is looking for a six-year deal.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Aroldis Chapman told ESPN's Marly Rivera he wants a six-year contract. I would be shocked if the Yankees gave him that. I'm not even sure they would go five years, but we'll see.
