    I agree. But that also means parting ways with Roberts. I do think if at the end of June Roberts is hitting .208 the Yankees might cut him. Outside of yesterday's game he hasn't been that...

    Glad someone else wants to defend Cashman. I personally am a defender. I think the moves he made at the time he made them have been good. I think we have traded for the correct free agents.

    I believe Tanaka's career performance will be similar to David Wells. Both pitchers were very aggressive and didn't walk people (Wells had 719 Walks in 3,439 innings less than 2 per 9 innings). Ask...

    I often wonder how Yankee Fans (to which I am one) can rip Cashman's moves overall. Sure some moves work out some don't...some moves are precipitated by ownership. But here is the rub:

    Here is what I have come to know - No matter who the players are, Girardi can manage a bullpen and get great results;

    If you think about Joe's tenure, outside of Mo most of the pieces (other than...

    I really hope the Yankees move on Franklin. I think this is the deal:

    Cervelli, Ichiro, Phelps, and 5.0 million Cash

    Well The Rockies traded Kyle Parker for Nick Franklin. Given what Seattle got here, I think the Yankees should have made a move, I don't think it would have cost us Phelps either.

    Franklin is one of the better players out there. Did he have problems his first 1/2 season yes. But he was VERY young. Showed some promise.

    I realize he made alot of errors, curious about his...

    I did think of that, but I can eliminate 2 players easily. Ichiro (who we probably trade unless someone goes down), Franklin/Roberts. Franklin can be groomed in the minors. Roberts - I have a...

    Someone beat me to the punch on going after Drew. But I think we absolutely should.

    As for Jeter, you can tell from last year his body was not responding. Took a year for him to heal from that...

    A trade for Gardner and Phillips makes all the sense in the world for the Yankees. But I do respect the Yankees not wanting to pickup 4/40 on a guy who barely crossed .700 OPS which even for a...

    If Cano doesn't sign I don't blame the Yankees. He has been shooting for the moon. Cano could have been wrapped up in a minute for 8/190 in NY with a few incentives to get him to 200 million. The...

    Here is my thinking. Ellsbury 7/150 is better than Beltran 3/50.

    So how does this play out. Well. I think Mr. Scott Boras is enacting some revenge, and while I think he has done his clients a...

    For one thing, If I'm the Yankee ownership I don't comment on any players, other than perhaps Cano. Frankly I think the Yankees need to look at a two year rebuilding plan. Year 1, is simple, don't...

  17. MLB'S Pathetic Response to the Dempster undermines their Steroid Case

    Yankees should make two moves.

    1.) Michael Young. Unless the league is bluffing big time...A-rod is probably done for the year with the suspension (wont see him until late 2014 early 2015). ...

    When Granderson comes back Wells is a platoon player with Ichiro and Hafner. Against Lefties he has a respectable .744 OPS, Hafner has the same versus Righties. Ichiro may have a .700 OPS but he...

    Rutldge for Nova

    I noticed (because I have him on one of my fantasy teams) that Josh Rutledge was sent down. One of the positions I think the Yankees should look to get better is Shortstop. Rutledge is a nice...

    Cashman GM of the Year

    For all the Cashman bashing, looks like he pulled a few rabbits out of his hat once again. With the Yankees starting to get healthy look at the moves and non-moves:

    1. Vernon Wells. Picked him...

    Although the stat sheet has Lin, slightly ahead, an argument can be made that the team gels better with Felton's style. Keep in mind Felton is a much better defender then Lin, this often does not...
