And, yes, I am well aware that Sabathia was lurking on the free agency radar going forward.
How many of those supposed World Series titles were brought by guys Cashman signed.
I can and will more than gladly post Brian Cashmans work history, as I've done before, with the dates of his tenure as GM which began in February 1998.
Unless of course you feel that the dynasty lineup of Paul O Neill, David Cone, Tino Martinez, Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Bernie Williams, Cecil Fielder, Mariano Rivera, Scott Brosius, Chuck Knoblauch, Et all were actually signed/groomed by Brian Cashman AFTER he became GM in 1998.
What about Cashmans insistence that we not resign ARod. Where would his lone 2009 championship be then. Much as ARod is hammering us now, there would've been NO Brian Cashman championship without his stellar 2009 postseason. None.

Secondly, the way you argue makes it hard to take anything you say seriously. When you begin by insulting people and calling them ignorant, nobody wants to agree with you, and your "rhetoric" is not good enough to justify the insults and convince people that you are in fact right. It's also a childish way to formulate arguments and your credibility is severely damaged when you act in that manner.
Derek Jeter is a lucky man.
I would dump salary tomorrow if we had the right GM I mean where are we going with this team I dont think they can win a world series they dont grind out at bats they dont push the other teams defense they dont look to get deep into bullpens they just dont do what it takes to win a series and Im very suprised Girardi is ok with this rebuild tomorrow nobody even likes this team I have a buisness right near the stadium and believe me real Yankee fans dont come anymore there is no energy at all.Real Yankee fans will accept rebuilding and doing it the right way we had a run that will never be duplicated look at it this way our closer is 43 shortstop almost 40 arod is so shot from steroids he cant stay healthy do you realize he was an embarasment in the playoffs our centerfielder looked like he was lost Cano hasnt run out a ground ball in years Tex never shows up in big spots we could go on for hours this team is going no place DUMP NOW PLAY SOME KIDS AND REBUILD the yes network will still make money and coporate will still buy tickets I lived with the Knicks the last decade I can deal with a few down years with the Yankees
While all or some or a small part of what you say may be true (yes, we have a bunch of old guys and they did indeed suck wind in the ALCS), this team won 95 games which was more than any other team in the AL won, so all is not without hope. Most of those old guys are back and they're a little bit older, but the "play some kids and rebuild" argument is one I have a hard time buying into. I might be able to buy into it if you could tell me:
Which "kids" do you want to play? The only OF prospect close to being ready for prime time is Melky Mesa, whose only claim to fame so far is that he failed to step on 3B in that one post-season game. Oh, and he strikes out a lot. You want to see him in RF instead of Ichiro?
Also, what do we do with the old guys who still have years left on their contracts? Tex and A-Rod will be here until they're gray. Plus, there aren't any "kids" ready to step in and take their spots. Jeter won't be here forever, but he was pretty good last year and we don't really have a "kid" to take his place unless you really want to watch Nunez trying to play SS every day.
I guess people forget..that um...these little things exist.

I can't even begin to read something; unless it has SOME punctuation.
What I will say is that their is no maybe about it. Arods late inning heroics staved off elimination and that cannot be argued.
Now, as far as taking the advice of your philosophy on Internet protocol.
Why don't you look up in post #56 of this very thread on page 4 how said poster actually was the FIRST one to hurl personal insults.
I certainly would've thought That your advanced medical training would've taught you to look at everything before you jump in rashly . When mocked I will certainly mock back and I think you realize by now that I don't feel answerable to your sense of offended decorum.
Thanks for the advice anyway.
I'll take it under consideration.
