Flexibility is a must for Cashman....he seriously needs to trade Granderson....He will be 33 starting his next contract...not worth it! Trade him for whatever Brian can get....
Hafner by the month.
Mar/Apr: 196 WRC+
May: 64 WRC+
June: 54 WRC+
July: 31 WRC+
I'm fine trading him if they can get some solid pieces for him. If they can't find a good deal theres no point.
i don't know if you guys have seen this
so apparently if he retires early the yanks can recoup anywhere from 70%-100% of his remaining 114 million dollar contract if doctors list him as unable to physically play baseball anymore, so for them the best case scenario is this surgery goes awry and they get off the hook.
Granderson has his huge flaws but he's also a guy that has hit 84 HRs over the past two years. Cashman is an idiot if he gives that up for a couple low level prospects to get the payroll lowered...for what? Payroll next year doesn't matter at all. If it did the team wouldn't have signed Kuroda, Pettitte, etc...
The team also does want to win. Or at least look like it wants to win. Whether you like Granderson or not he is a big part of this offense. Some stats might not be pretty but 84 HRs and 225 RBIs over the last two years isn't nothing.
Instant replay will be expanded:
RABVia Jayson Stark: Instant replay is unlikely to be expanded in time for next season. MLB tested out a new system for fair-or-foul calls at Yankee Stadium and CitiField late last season, but the league can’t decide on a technology or how to employ it. We went through the exact same “MLB is looking into it … lol too bad” song and dance last offseason.
I do to dislike Grandy, but he showed very little passion down the stretch and in Oct....Confidence could be shattered....90% of his swing and misses in Oct were in the dirt 3 feet away.....I don't think he hits 25 HRs this season....I do think he will K close to 200 times....if they keep him then move him out of CF....
Either way this year is the last run with the current roster.....a serious change is needed with an injection of youth......we have no Bernie Williams or Derek Jeter on this roster....This team is old and needs to stay healthy to have a shot...Cano is 30.....we needed some 22-24 yr old position players coming up and it is not there....
The team will win games but Andy, Kuroda and Mo need to be successful....along with Jeter and a few others."
But i dont believe CG will not be resigned. You just want draft picks instead? Shouldnt they get more than that?
Be resigned....double negative...my bad.
