    The question I have now is, do I extend Hicks? He was great last year, but is that enough Track record after years of being not good to extend?

    Yeah, he is, and there is no telling where he will end up. Is his value so largely tied to his home that it matters? Would that uncertainty make you let him play for a buck the year? Given our large cap and inflation, $6 is still a massive bargain if he is capable of repeating his 2018 performance?

    I'd extend to $6. I can't imagine that he won't be starting for someone and producing that much, and it makes him a dump trade guy for this year. I think that's better than taking the extra $5 profit this year.

    there is a non-zero chance that the Yankees sign Harper and give Judge significant time in CF this year. so more dominoes to fall

    Yes, but Hicks will either play full time or get traded unless the Yankees are nuts. Gardner shouldn't block him at all.
