    I think the Yankees have too many who lack hustle. I like Tex because he plays great D and he hustles. Arod for all the crap he takes the man hustles. I do not see hustle out of Cano,Granderson,Swisher ,A.Jones or Chavez and I was on Chavez band wagon day one but seems like these guys for one reason or another are not going to run through a wall for the team.

    but Cano is much too talented to let walk. great defender and best hitting 2nd baseman in game but the others should go. I think you need guys that hustle up and down the lineup and care more about winning than looking pretty or seeing how many homers they can hit or just going along for the ride.
    Cano, by far, has the most talent on this team IMO. I just hate how lazy he is. I've said before I wish he had Pedroias heart. With the contract he is demanding it may not be a bad idea to trade him. He'd most likely be a 1 year rental but he'd fetch some nice talent. I'd love Hamilton, like you said, he does hustle and he hits for power AND average and does play a nice CF. I just want some guys who can move the runners and not this station to station stuff then waiting for the big fly.

    We need some youth on this team and we need guys who are Hungry! I'd love to see the Yankees go after Hamilton but his injury issues concern me a bit. Upton wouldn't be a good fit in my opinion

    Pick up the option to Cano, and package him, A-Rod and hughes in a trade to the Marlins for Staton and scraps. Now that they traded Bell, they have cap room.

    #8 The yanks don't chase any big names in FA cause they are all about profits and not winning. (George will be missed more than ever)

    They need a different offensive approach though. Even though they outscored 29 other MLB teams, they are too "station to station" meaning it usually takes 3 hits to score a run unless someone hits a homer. They could use a few more guys who can take an extra base, go from 1st to 3rd on a single, steal a base, bunt, etc.
    I have been saying this since the day sliced bread was invented. But as usual "I was laughed at"

    Well, my god. As if I have not heard the dumbest ideas already and then I read this.

    In conclusion,

    I am back. Mods stink. And the Yankees pissed me off. Oh, Swisher. Can't say I told you so.

    I'll toast to that.

    2. It doesnt work in the playoffs. 1 World Series win in 12 seasons isnt exactly up to par with Yankee standards. Again, relying on the long ball doesnt work in the post season.

    3. I think a team more likely to rely on a homerun as opposed to putting the ball in play is more subject to a cold streak like this.

    The teams that won it in 96, 98,99 and 2000 didnt rely on the homerun. At all. Guys like Paul O'Neil who hit for average and didnt swing for the fence with RISP. I dont see why you dont get this. Its not hard to comprehend.

    Again, The 90s dynasty Yankees is a standard that can't be equal with because those teams come once every 30 years...you can not use them...

    And again, explain why Cano went cold after having good postseasons prior? They all got cold at the same time not because of relying on the HR but because they were pitched differently and never made the adjustments.

    There is no simple formula....you just got to be hot in Oct.

    Holy ****! After reading some of these posts, it's going to be a long offseason. Have to make sure that I have enough Ibuprofen to last me until April.

    Usual guys are fine. But some people tend to make some absolutely stupid trade/FA requests.

    Hamilton is not signing for less than 6 years. It's looking like A-Rod is here to stay. Were not opening the checkbook like "The Boss" days, and getting rid of players and replacing them with virtually the same type of players is stupid. That is a CLEAR sign of making moves just to make moves.

    Trade/FA wise, not including pitching, I like Span, and who knows, possibly Butler? Although that would probably require significant pieces to be moved. But if you're going to make signings or trades you do it for those type of players. Not an injury prone, recovering addict who would implode in NY. And sure, let's replace Grandy with B.J. Upton. That way, we can keep the high strikeout total intact and get about half the homeruns.

    And enough with the Russell Martin hate. Who are you going to replace him with? A Free Agent? HAH, yeah let's make that position a little more like sh.!t. A catcher from our farm? No, and here is why. Sanchez is not ready, Romine, not so sure. Martin may hit in the low .200's, but you can pencil him in for 20 homers, and there was an article on ESPN that I read which said that Martin, just by the way he frames pitches, saves about 10 runs a year. It was stated he is the best framer in the game, and if you think that isn't important, well I'm sure you're posts would show why There is nobody better out there right now.

    Swisher can go, and quite frankly if we can't get anyone via FA or trade who is better to replace him, I would love to have Ichiro back.

    Guys that I don't think will be back.

    Jones- FA
    Swisher- FA
    Hughes- Traded. Honestly thought it would happen sooner.
    Ibanez- FA
    Chavez- FA, although would not mind him coming back.
    Soriano- Opts out
    Garcia- FA
    Phelps- Traded

    I see Phelps and Hughes as our two main trade bait pitchers. Not sure about Nova, but I'm pulling for him to be a solid part of this team. If not, oh well.

    Cap room? What is this, the NFL?

    I Everyones dreams this happens:

    Cano and A-Rod for Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Johnson

    Hughes and Grandy for Justin Upton

    This most likely wont happen. So lets be more realistic. Do I think they will make big changes? Yes...but not to this extreme.

    I do think that Granderson could be traded and i honestly would trade Cano because he wants 10 yrs and after A-Rod contract im hesitant.

    Stanton would cost way more than Cano and A-rod. I'd love to have him, but he'd take those 2, and a few upper level prospects. He's young and has unbelievable potential.
