    And yes while cashman can lay claim to that championship it was mainly because he had free agency to bail him out of the mistakes he made the previous 4 seasons .
    Unfettered control since 2005 were the terms for Cashman re-signing each contract renewal. Scherzer, Machado, Hader, and JD all look like greatly missed opportunities right now but hey.....the Cashmanites love their Michael Pinedas, Jameson Taiilons, Jay Bruces, and James Paxtons.

    They seem to really love often injured mediocrity thatís for sure ....

    And do you know what unfettered control means ? It means having total control of nearly everything he has a hand in and that includes plans for the pitching on a daily basis before games and a hand in how the line up will be like on a daily basis before games and responsibility of the anals department that HE put in place .

They all sat down, Boone, Blake, Thames and Cash and hashed some things out. Blake said his relationship with Gary has been much better since. Seems like he's in a better place mentally and wouldn't be surprised if he has a good year ...
    That is good to hear. He does look more confident defensively, he just doesn't have that same killer look at the plate, Yet. I'm hoping he has a great yr, when you can get that kind of production out of the C position it really give you an advantage.

    Then trade him in the off season and hopefully Breaux will be ready to take over next yr

    I would be happy if all that came true . Knowing cashman he gets a big 4 or 5 year deal after next season,

Or at least take him out of the damn top of the lineup ... the 3 hole is a magnanimously stupid place to bat him.
    Actually I think there was something wrong with him mechanically because his power was completely sapped. After August he was terrible, but before that he was .300+ hitter.

    The thing is its not about how many marquee names you have on the roster, its about where the money is spent. The Yankees have an excellent 3rd baseman in Urshela. Thy don't need Machado unless they were going to move him to SS. Same with a guy like JD Martinez. They have Voit who led MLB in homers last year.

    The Yankee's problems come from not identifying their weaknesses particularly well. You could make a case they could have made additions to the lineup but their offense is good enough to win a WS. What has hurt them is their lack of SP and their inability to produce in high leverage spots. The bullpen struggled with that, specifically Chapman, the last couple of years as well.

    Cashman's biggest problem imo has been his inability to build a WS caliber rotation. You can't just invest in Gerrit Cole and call it a day. It's not enough because Kluber is old, Taillon is injury prone, Severino is coming off a major injury. There are some good young arms there but not established ones.

    The Dodgers won a WS and what did they do? Add the NL Cy Young winner from last year and put David Price in their bullpen.

    Letís not forget Lyle Overbay, Travis Hafner, Kevin Youkilis, Tulowitski, Vernon Wells, Mark Reynolds.
    They were all broken or garbage when they left their former teams and Cashman had to sift through the garbage pile to get those bones that were already stripped of meat and tried to use the pinstripe uniform to cover it up and thought the fan base would not notice.

    There was also Jeff weaver , Kevin brown , Javier Vazquez , Phil Hughes , ian Kennedy , joba chamberlain , Chien ming wang , kei igawa ....

    And those were just from 03 to 08 lol. They were not all old and broken down but examples of cashmanís inability to build a ws caliber rotation

    Cashmanís excuse is that the payroll was already bulging and he was forced to dumpster dive or go with young thst were far from ready. He couldnít trade Hughes, Joba or Kennedy at the time because he was always reminded of the Core 4 + Bernie and thought those young players would turn out to be the same. Kennedy is the only one left right now....Sometimes you need to not worry about payroll and just go for it. You get Cole and you leave him with no support but garbage to fill in behind him. Monty is serviceable but he is just a 4 or 5.

    Cole and Bauer would have given the Yankees some teeth in the rotation. And quit the comments about Bauer. Come Oct youíll see LA benefitting while the Yankees watch from the sidelines cleaning the blades of their golf clubs.

    If Hal had the stones he would fire both Cashman and Boone right now as we have 145 left.......But he will wait until the record gets to 17-30 and remind everybody how the team turned it around in 2005 with their 11-19 start and ended up in 1st place. Save it Cash!

    Itís not that he doesnít have the stones , he just doesnít care enough to do such a move. And it would be dumb of him to bring up 05 since the angels owned the Yankees pitching in the first round that year . So honestly that season wasnít anything to brag about

    I was horrified at Bruce. I understand the others. I get wanting to find a guy for cheap. I think Tallion was a good signing but not if you expect him to come in and be the #2. That's his ceiling What should have happened is that he found a legit, healthy guy who could be that. Then trading for Tallion to be a mid rotation guy or Pineda or Pax.......
    ......
    .......
    (Because that list is too long), would make more sense.

    Coming into a season. with 2 guys recovering from surgeries, with another one, Sevy on the way and a guy who hasn't pitched in a year?
    Again stallion and kulber are decent signings for pretty cheap and short term. Great. But it is short sighted as all hell to presume they will be good enough to be your #2 and 3 starters.

    It's a long season and who knows, they could find their form.
    But as I said last year and the year before,(since they traded for Stanton) this lineup cannot win without great pitching. Right now, this lineup can't even win with great pitching. That will change. They will hit. But it's a piss poor construction that relies on power over contact.
    There is also the matter of a manager who is clueless as to what to do when the lineup can't hit HRs.

    My guess is that they go on a tear that puts them in position to make a trade at the deadline and they find a pitcher.
