I think if we've learned anything over the years it's that Brian Cashman is a GM that either doesn't pull the trigger when he needs to or does so dismissively with what he gives away in relation to what he's getting back. His record speaks for itself. He's only reluctantly decided to listen to offers for Granderson only because they need to keep under the 189 million mark, and as far as I can tell, we haven't heard one rumor of anyone even calling Cashman about Granderson. I get the feeling that Granderson is still kind of hands off regardless of what Cashman may have said to the media. Both Hughes and Nova should be on the block as well.

I still can't believe what the Rangers lost for not wanting to trade Hamilton.
As for Joba, I can see no conceivable reason why he would want to stay with the yankees, unless he's probably so beaten down that he no longer cares about his career or money. If I'm him I'd want to be a closer or starter for some team. The very last thing I'd want is to remain a 6th or 7th inning guy making 2-3 million a year. That's just bulls-hit.
