Post of the month.
Just making sure we're clear.
Losers claim they did their best.
Winners go home and f--- the prom queen.
Gotta love Sean Connery.
When you are named Brian Cashman, the world is your oyster.
So by IH's very own analysis of Lester as pretty much a sub ace, better than 2 pitcher you would pay a guy 23.5, losing four of your top prospects, to a guy who is a quitter.
I advocated heavily on your boy Lester and somehow ended up on your ignore list.
In my 3500+ posting history, I've never said it more beautifully or more articulately than this.
The crux of the biscuit right here.
I've heard limited hearsay that he can come off as arrogant, but again that's unconfirmed conjecture. He used to be a premiere talent with a premiere work ethic. Now he's the spokesperson for Hart...
My gut feeling tells me that Teixeira has cashed it in and is just collecting at this point. He was berated by management for running the Teixeira Inc. corporation superseding his baseball...
I think they're trying to talk the talk at this point to keep the ticket paying fans from revolting (how sad is that really)
Cashman seems to be on a very tight budgetary leash.
It was a joke.
Teixeira has publicly stated multiple times that they are going to have to bury him in the pinstripes. He's not going anywhere.
Cashman stated two days ago that they were far from done improving this team. I agree with every single point you just made. So is it incompetence or have the Yankees become paper tigers that no...
How many times have I imparted the mantra about Cashman's inability to formulate and execute a long term vision.
Lester got six years and didn't cost a pick.
Yet no one wanted him.
So do we now justify 200 mil and loss of pick for Max.
Makes no sense.
Nova coming back April 1
Honestly, I've grown more supportive of Cashman the past two years or so.
I still think he lacks long term vision and vastly overestimates his ability to develop talent but I've softened my stance...
No, but Groupon may indeed rear it's ugly head again this year.
Fixed. Now how about the other 15 guys.
Who are we going to trade?
Harang has had an awful career and even regressed during parts of last year despite his overall uptick in Atlanta.
If just 2 of those four offensive possibilities come somewhat to pass, I'll be very happy.
Our rotation though is a mess. Losing Green, the possible loss of McCarthy and even considering Kuroda...
In other news Soriano's wife is hot.
If Cashman is on a serious budget this year then I hope that McCarthy is open to limited years.
If we don't engage on Scherzer and can't get McCarthy to see our line of thinking we are going to be...
