    Don't shoot the messenger!

    What I do believe, Hal is dead serious about holding the line. Cashman is working within the guidelines to fill out a rotation that saw several holes develop.

    Who else costing at least $10 mill would you.have cut loose to re-sign Tank, plus the other two SPs?

    Oh not, not attacking you. Just asking. I just find it hard to believe if they signed Tanaka for 15M they couldn't find a few million to fit Tallion as well. And yeah, it seems like Hal was serious in the past too then eventually blew by it again. The Yankees are absolutely screwing themselves. They screwed their self with Stanton's contract and now by not going for it when their window is the most open it'll ever be.

    Yanks should call up Colorado and see what it would take to get Gray for the rotation and givens for the bullpen.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Gray is owned 6 and is a free agent at end of 2022, givens is owed 4 mil and is also a free agent at end of 2022.

    Maybe throw some better prospects in there to get them to eat some money.

    Maybe andujar in the package as well, to play third for them since they just traded their third baseman.

    With the Rockies trading Arenado, what would it take to pry German Márquez away? Possible?

    i don't think they went in on Kluber thinking, oh, it'll take 11 million to sign him. There was more or less a bidding war for Kluber and I think the yankees got swept up in it. They were even outbid by another team. I think overall, it was a good gamble, in spite of the injuries. If Kluber returns to form, and Taillon can be another Cole, then the yankees will have an amazing rotation, far better than any they've had in a very long time.

    It's not like a prediction or anything, but if it happens, then how can you argue the caliber of rotation we'd have? Besides, that was Taillon's pedigree when he was drafted, to be a number 1. Not really unrealistic, at all, if he can get past his health issues and pitches to his natural ability.

    It is very unrealistic. Sure, it's great to be hopeful and positive and all that, but come on.

    Cashman had some harsh but realistic words for Gary Sanchez.

    Good for.Cashman for taking that stance and not coddling him. Pena and Girardi were tough on him and that's when he put up his best results

    One of the big reasons Boone was brought in was to be better communicating with the young core, specifically Sanchez. That has worked well 👏

    Atleast we have 3-4 very promising C specs in Aball or higher. I'm still very hopeful that we get to see vintage Sanchez again... dude was a beast in 16-17

    Or else they trade Sanchez for Gray and Givens with the Rockies saving $4 million and the Sanchez hits 60 HRs for them in Colorado and becomes a Legend. I looked up their 2021 roster and they have one catcher, who had 39 AB last season in 46 games , so he's obviously a defensive replacement late in games.

    Not sure how Yadier Molina fits into the Yankees salary structure or whether they could do a blockbuster trade with the Indians for Roberto Perez (perhaps Frazier, Andujar and/or others).
