No doubt, pitching has to the most biggest priority.  If either Keuchel and Corbin are available, we must get at least one, great would be both.




I think Corbin is the guy. I think CC goes. Corbin being the lefty power arm from NY. Younger then Keuchel and not sure Keuchel is cut out for NY. Probably will want to keep his beard type. I'll take him but if a choice between the 2 I'd take Corbin.




The beard issue might be too big for Keuchel to overcome.




Telling Keuchel to shave that beard would be like telling Harper to shave his head. Big egos and that's their pride and joy.




Well the Yankees aren't going to change their rules for one person.

Nope and I hope they never do change that policy Mo. It's one of the many things that makes us unique.

I agree.




They are professional entertainers, the policy is classy and the league is littered with faddy hypsters that will look dated years from now.  The Yankees are an institution.

If the money is right, I'm betting Keuchel will shave in a heart beat... Sometimes it's a team thing to grow a beard just as it's a team thing to not have facial hair as a Yankee... But who says Keuchel is even on Ca$hmans radar ???

We need pitching ... that alone would put him on Cashman's radar.

Great wishing but I seriously doubt Keuchel will come here, beard or no. Corbin's a good bet right now. But I think we also need a complete (meaning all four) power-hitting OF: adding Harper if possible, but at least another LH bat in the line-up w/ power numbers and a high OPS. Didi's too erratic, and right now Bird's really not performed well, certainly nowhere near expectations. (I've said enough about the other LH guy.) The switch-hitting Hicks is okay, but that's it for LH power. At minimum, we can't rely on Bird in the future for that LH power-source, for he's bound to go through such slumps again.

Starting to agree Hamp.

Bird has showed very little ... Yankees are holding on because he is home grown.

I agree, Mo, but then why don't they put (the LH hitting 1B) Mike Ford on the 40-man and give him a chance to show what he's got? He's homegrown, too, and has played at SWB since time immemorial, it seems. He certainly can't do any worse than Bird. I just think Cashman has got fixated on Bird and, as w/ Cessa, can't let go of his imagination of what he thinks he can do.
