    Yankees fans are effectively held hostage by him and him alone. That is why I respectfully disagree with the idea of promoting or "adjusting" his position. As long as he has a say, he is trouble.
    I don't disagree, but who is directing that edict and change in direction? Could it be ownership?

    Did George (for all his faults) but profit above success? Not a chance. Winning is all that mattered and profit would surely follow. A philosophy he lived.

    I don't hear a cry for ownership to sell.

    There is no cry for ownership to sell because everyone knows that is not happening anytime soon . Best we can hope for is cashman to be fired and replaced with a more flexible GM . And that isn’t even likely .

    I can't imagine they won't bring Ford up form the Braves series. That SHOULD be the end of Bruce and Odor. We shall see.

    You expect him to know that? He thinks Cole will go 30 - 0.

    I remember what you said before every series and you haven't been right yet.

    Prior to Cashman, Stick was the longest tenured GM, holding the position from 1990-95. Most others served one to two year stints and were gone. Stick deserves credit for the early championship run (mostly for protecting Jete and Mo from Georges wrath while convincing him building the core was the road to success...don't mess with it. ) , but Cashman had a hand in it as well. Cashman was lucky in some respect, George was pulling back a bit during his initial years. as the GM.

    "....he never built a title team without free agency to bail him out" Didn't I once warn you about speaking in absolutes? They have a nasty way of coming back to bite you in the butt!

    Cashman does deserve some credit for the Yankees postseason success, some smart trades NOT free agent signings instrumental to that success:

    David Wells, Graeme Lloyd for Roger Clemens (1999)

    Ricky Ledee for David Justice (2000)

    Alfonso Soriano, Joaquin Arias for Alex Rodriguez (2004)

    C.J. Henry for Bobby Abreu (2006)

    Wilson Betemit for Nick Swisher (2009) Also signed CC , Teixeira and A.J. Burnett

    ..and who can forget Shane Greene for Didi Gregorius (2015)

    I absolutely hate playing a Cashman apologist / defender. But certain erroneous assumption need clarity and /or correction.
    No comment Jorge? I am surprised you seem to respond to every post whether directed to you or not. I reposted just in case you missed this one.

    And maybe Boone gets canned.

    As well as Cashbox.


    I've said this before and I'll say it again. You're a terrible fan. TERRIBLE!!! You want your so called favorite team to finish last. That's insane.

    This team is going to be fine folks.

    All teams have 5-9 stretches during a 162 game season...We just happened to get it now.


    But that would ruin your season. You want them to finish last.

    Higgy is the Yankees true catcher. Send that stiff packing! The man is always hurt.

    If you were the GM, I'd seriously consider jumping ship. LOL

    If that doesn't get Ford brought up for Yanks' next game, nothing will. Thank goodness Bruce finally seeing writing on the wall, a bit late, but bettef late than never.

    Its like the players have bought into all the anals projections and forgot that the games aren't played on paper. at this point this team would have to get better to be bad ...unbearably boring to watch
    They didnt look good last year either, so it seems like this is a continuation. Whatever the coaching staff is preaching it clearly isn't working. It seems like they aren't pissed off enough when they lose.... and Boones "we put up some good at bats but overall we need to get better" crap is creating a bunch of complacent kool aid drinkers...
