    Except when Jeter went into his pre-3000 slump, it wasn't Long he went to to fix his swing.

    This was two years in a row of bad offense, including players that played below expectations. There were...

    I suspect he would never be give the autonomy to do so.

    Brett Gardner? Does CC count? I know he declared FA, but I don't think he was on the open market before resigning.
  4. Poll: There are always options, good and bad. Is the...

    There are always options, good and bad. Is the risk of overpaying Robertson $2-3m for one year really worse than letting him walk away and getting nothing in return, with no established closer to...

    You forgot El Duque and Contreras. But that's 6 players since 1996 (the year of the Fat Toad).

    Agreed. The Boss may be gone (for better or worse) but the Yankees' ownership remain one of the more actively involved in MLB. And while Cashman may head the baseball side of things, we know that...

    Coaches and managers are hired to be fired. We all know that. We don't know to what degree Long was communicating with the players, how much they listened, or what if anything he did to try and adapt...

    Yankees also laid their eyes on Puig and Abreu, so I'm not sure how much I trust their judgement when it comes to Cubans. Still it's foolish to dump money on someone just because the last couple of...

    D-Rob has been an elite reliever for the last 4 years. It was shortsighted for the Yankees to not offer him a deal earlier. Right now, he is the only reliever the Yankees have with a reliable...

    Except, as others have stated, the first tinkering was making him a reliever. He had always been a starter until desperation forced the Yankees hand to bring him up and make him a reliever. While...

    Respectfully disagree. Betances is tossing in an era with less power, and more players willing to hack and take the K. Mo also followed up his 1996 season with 16 more gems. DB has a long way to go...

    He's happy where he is, he's successful where he is, and he's valuable where he is.

    Imagine asking in 1997 if we should try to convert Mariano Rivera back to being a starter. I'm sure someone did....

    If they got scared off from those early numbers, what did they think was going to happen on the open market? They makes their decision not to trade him in 2013 even less understandable. I am always...

    Now that Jeets is gone, the Core Four gone, YS2 is gone, Torre is retired, Monument Park safely houses Tino and Pauley.... I think maybe now is the time we also say good-bye to that last connection...

    They should have tried to sign him to another rather then let him hit the market. If they did, and Boras/Jay-Z said "no" so be it, but to my knowledge no one has ever hinted at such an exchange. What...

    Who says he didn't?

    We have to be careful about taking a report like this at face value. We don't know who said what, let alone what actually happened. Any speculation about a private conversation...

    But that belief is based on faith, is it not? No real evidence that he would have taken that much less money. How much can you say we did not negotiate in good faith when we offered the 2nd largest...

    Don't care about the closer role. The guy has been an elite or near-elite reliever since 2009. I have no reason to think pitching one inning later will destroy that talent. Obviously there is...

    So I guess that it is good for the Cubbies to be starting a second century without a championship? Or to let the Mets flounder in the game's biggest market? Or for the A's and Rays to compete while...

    He's played 40-odd games in 2 seasons, which isn't much better. As for Jeter, he's mediocre, not worth the money they are paying him if he wasn't *Derek Jeter*, but at least he doesn't have bad hips....

    The difference is Joba was ALWAYS a starter before the Yankees brought him up in relief. He had the makeup and stuff to be successful as a starter. DB doesn't. He admits it. He has gone on record...

    There's other factors here beyond the salary. That's a sunk cost whether ARod plays or not. Sure a miracle may happen and wipe him off the books (another ban, someone taking his contract, retirement)...
