    Imagine If The Yanks...

    ...actually became sellers for one year.

    Imagine the hauls we could get for trading the following expiring deals:

    Cano
    Grandy
    Joba
    Hughes

    If we traded all four in various deals, could we not restock the upper levels of the farm, while setting up the 2014 team and beyond?

    Question is: Would this fan base be on board with one year of cleaning house for another decade of a new young core to compliment our aging vets on long term deals?

    I would love this because I truly believe none of these 4 players will be here anyway in 2014.

    Is the financial risk of an empty stadium in 2013, worth the upside of building a new core?

    Thoughts?

    Would require a GM who actually knows what he is doing, which we, sadly, lack.


    And so, a new era begins.....

    Cano and Hughes are too close to FA to really pull in a credible haul, we waited too long on Chamberlain and maybe Granderson nets us something.

    Disagree. Cano would get us an awesome package. I think all have value to MLB teams that have a shot to compete.

    I don't know Leo, he's one season from a highly prized free agency. One year rentals tend to diminish returns IMO.

    See Zach Greinke, Tex, and Cliff Lee recently. If the player is good enough you can get a haul. Even a half of a year.

    Yeah. I'd really be surprised if Cano couldn't bring back at least two top prospects. One year deal or not he is the best second baseman in baseball.

    The Mets turned half a year of 34 year old Beltran into their #1 prospect.

    Yeah, I think teams on the brink would pay up to get him and take a run for a year.

    Such as St Louis, Atlanta, Nats, LA, Arizona, Texas, White Sox....

    i honestly don't see cano going anywhere, yanks will resign him for sure. We are still the yankees. Winning is still #1 priority.

    Funny how we all defend Cashman for not wanting to trade top talent AND have to pay for an elite player but we expect that everyone else will be just so eager to do the very same thing.

    Then why did you want to trade away our best hitting prospect in a decade for Halladay or Lee? Weren't those guys one year rentals? They should have been cheap..... right????

    Precisely because I would have paid the money due a contract extension which is where you and I disagree.

    Yes it is an egregious practice to part with a kings ransom in players (or what we thought was a kings ransom, that is) and then pay handily on top of that.

    I am not disagreeing with that but that Halladay was the best arm I the game as was Santana before him.

    What I am saying is why expect every other GM to do exactly what we are arguing Cashman was smart not to do when it was his turn.

    Is that not also a double standard?
