    I am sure they fired someone in their front office in 2019 and then brought in someone from Tampa bay to replace him

    Dombroiski was the president of operations, n I t the GM.

    Who do u guys think are the top 3 gms in baseball. I would have to say Friedman and Prellar, LA and SD, would be my top 2. After that I wouldn't say anyone else has established themselves or done as well as those 2. I would say the Tays GM will make that list if they end up winning the Snell trade

    While I think Cashman is probably in the top 10 bit IMO he way to into using anals to evaluate players make in game decisions and scouting/ development. Imo we need someone in that office and even our manager needs to use analytics as a tool not using them as the primary decision making tools. Imo the eye test is also very important. I'd love to see them bring on a Pena type who could use a different method to get through to players, especially Sanchez. If he's even going to put up elite numbers again he needs a mentor to kick his *** when hes being lazy.

    I would absolutely love if they brought Kratz back as a coach to work with young pitchers and catchers. He was excellent and any C that can still get a job in his late 30's definitely has some knowledge to pass on. Catcjers always make the best coaches. Bring Kratz back and maybe in a few yrs he ends up or manager or MLB pitching and Catching coach

    I would say cashman is not in the top ten gms , I would say 12 or 13 tops . I just see him as an average gm who is too in love with analytics and hrs . As for kratz , I believe he retired and isn’t going to be a playing this season. I wouu up of love kratz as a catching coach or bench coach

    Dayne, Preller is looking like a genius this off season. He's seizing the moment and taking advantage of opportunity.

    I am not convinced the yanks would have beaten the Astros , Don’t forget cole would have only started one game in that series , game 4 . Astros would have likely feasted on a worn out yanks bullpen and suspect starting pitching in the first 3 games .

    I want people who think the Yankees would have beaten the Astros in the alcs last season with cole only starting one game in that series . Please explain how a Yankees team with an overused bullpen on top of that would have beaten the Astros .

    Exactly , they would have feasted on the Yankees weak pitching in the first 3 games of that series .

    Clearly, you only read a little..I know when and how long it's been as it is... never said I didn't... though many here seem to think the Yanks should have the same successes as when it was only 8 teams and win the regular season, you win the pennant... those days are long gone.. when you add teams to the playoffs... you make it so a team that really has no business winning.. can win... (I.E. I gauled me that Houston (and Milwaukee) was even allowed in the playoffs, then if that wasn't bad enough... they were 1 win away from the WS... they were below .500 on the season... it made the MLB regular season and playoffs into a JOKE...its no wonder so many tuned it out!)

    Personally... teams that can't win their division should be done! But MLB just sees $$$$... just like NHL, NBA and NFL... (worse with the NFL and the NFC East.. ugh talk about losers!)

    Oh, I know.. it's the way it is... but that don't mean I have to like it.. I much preferred the 2 division leagues of the 80's.. and can't stand the daily interleague play... (well, inter conference.. since it is daily.. they're not separate leagues anymore... ) I like the difference between the AL and NL.. (DH or no DH) Both styles have their advantages.. I like making pitchers hit meaning they have to be a complete player... rather than the 1 dimensional players they are in the DH leagues... but I also like the fact that in the AL, they can make pitching changes without worrying about whose going to hit when for the pitchers spot..but it does mean you need a deeper bench... which means the backup guys get into more games in the NL... Both have advantages.. and I like seeing those.. now.. you can see the pitchers hitting going away sooner... which will be a sad day for baseball in america...

    I think many of our younger members fail to see or appreciate the Yankees history, how things have changed, and use the NFL, NBA and NHL as templates for post season play....the more the merrier! The beginning of the end began with the WC spots imo. The continued expansion of post season, imo, will continue the downward spiral. The product so watered down people may only watch "the playoffs." Once they reduce the season from 162 down to around 100 or whatever their "magic' number to insure parity, look out.

    Rant off......and get off my lawn kid!
    A-MEN!!

    Oh, and I still abhor the Giants and Dodgers for how they treated NYC in the mid-50's... a city that supported both teams for decades.. only for them to move 3000 miles away IN THE SAME OFFSEASON... I was not alive yet... and I've heard that Brooklyn had yet to forgive the Dodgers.... just rude how baseball let that happen... The Dodgers deserve their warm weather fans they have (word I've heard.. they show up late.. stick around just long enough to be seen.. then leave early... and that's when their winning... ).. and the Giants not getting any championships for 4 decades after the move...

    People.. you want your favorite teams to NOT move... piece of advice... MAKE THEM OWN THEIR VENUES... that means it's like trying to move an Oak tree without killing it... They love renting because they can pack up and move with little notice (see the Colts, Dodgers, Giants, etc..)

    I guess this means.. I'm a puriest in many ways... and I can live with that tag... just because that's they "way it is" doesn't mean "I have to like it!"... I don't mind the expansion.. or the parity.. but watering down the playoffs... YUCK!

    Noting wrong with being a purest. I full agree with both your pos and Doc's.
    The regular season means less and less.

    My dad was a Brooklyn Dodgers fan. He hated the Giants and LA Dodgers.
