    Why bother coming up with new reasons for 6-man rotation to be a problem... let's face it, all the good ones were used in the late 60's/early 70's when teams went from the then standard, 4-man...

    I do believe you have nailed the real problem with the yanks with their farm... Ajax and IPK were dealt for granderson because the front office (ownership may have been involved, to what degree, we...

    I don't Hate Cano... I hate that he left (and since the Yanks did make a very substantial offer... so HE LEFT when he didn't have to), but I don't hate him... but since he left, I consider him...

    don't knock it.. my resume is 10X what yours is (and still growing)... and the concepts don't change.. only the level of execution.
