The Yankees had a core of homegrown talent. They called them the core 4. Posada, Pettite, Rivera and Jeter were all drafted/signed.

Right, and many of their other key players like Tino Martinez and Scott Brosius were guys that weren't big time money guys.  Bernie Williams was another home grown drafted Yankee. The Boss started throwing around major money after the meltdown against the Diamondbacks in 2001 and the Yankees have only won 1 WS since then and that was with the team they bought in 2009. One of the reasons Cashman has tried so hard to get the Yankees back to drafting and developing their own players.

First real domino of the offseason falls, as James Paxton goes to NYY for Justus Sheffield and two others. 

Wonder if this pulls the Yankees out of the running for Patrick Corbin? Also wonder if maybe that means Braves should go after Mitch Haniger? Haniger would the absolutely perfect replacement for Markakis in every single way.

Doubt it, they still need another pitcher and probably dieing to spend $$$.

I hope we at least make an offer on Haniger.
