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

    We might as well be discussing Paul Byrd shutting us down 15 years ago because we've learned nothing as an organization in pressure games since then.

    Im on the fire Cashman train with you. After I saw his end of season presser and heard him say something to the effect of " we will get together with everyone and work our process that we;ve had in place for the past ten year yadda yadda " I thought, the process that has netted you a WS 11 years ago, that process? Come on, its time to go Cash. Yeah, he puts together a competitive team year in a year out but he never makes that one trade or two that puts the team over the top cuz the deal might favor the other team. The idea of losing the battle but winning the war must be a foreign concept.

    I'd rather have a team that wins 2 or 3 times in ten year with a couple of bad seasons than being almost good enough every year. So yeah man, im with you, time to bring someone in that has a grasp on todays game. Its no longer put the most talent on the field, its a game of making the parts fit well, which, hes done a very poor job of.

    Yeah, not making a trade at this years deadline should get him fired by itself.

    The best upside signings on the free agent market this year?

    1. Chris Archer
    2. Cole Hamels
    3. Andrelton Simmons
    4. James Paxton
    5. Kirby Yates

    We explain why: https://buff.ly/2TBHcta
    how many of those guys would you want to sign? Yates at the right price and maybe Paxton on the right kinda deal but the other 3 i'm not sure i'd touch. Archer has been a complete disaster since he left the Rays. I'd take a chance on him as a reliever or sign him to an MILB deal but i'd never want to count on him to be a part of the rotation

    its really to bad he got hurt, he was probably our best reliever in 19. The good news is its going to save us about 5.5M and in this market we could probably pick up 2 good relievers for not much more than that

    Yates but i doubt he can be had a decent price. Rather try and sign Hand

    The rest no thanks. Paxton has been underwhelming and the team has plenty of 3,4,5 starter options, they need a legit 2. If Sevy can come back and be even close to what he was then they have a real 1 - 2 - 3 that will have a real chance.

    I want no part of any. Just surprised by the list.

    Cleveland didn't pick up Carlos Santana's option either, so they now have a big opening at 1st base

    Sounds like the Mets are going to offer Stroman the QO, so we can scratch him off the possible's list. No way are we going to pay more than 18m and give the Mets a draft pick

    You really think he was an option? They could've traded for him and didn't. He's more of a borderline 2, or 3 even, on a contender which is fine but not at the 15+ he will get.

    Again, they need a Bauer type at 2 and not a good but not great pitcher. Would be great if Sevy can come back, even at 75%, and give the team a 1 2 3 that actually gives them a real chance.

    I want nothing to do with him but others had been talking about him as an option.

    I completely agree that they need a legit number 2 very badly. I do have serious concerns about Sevy when he comes back after missing almost 3yrs. I just don't think the Yanks can count on him being the same guy he was before, especially right away

    I don't know why people like Johnny bother being a fan, or anything.

    I've never met someone more negative in my life, if my memory is correct.
