So in other words what he is saying the Yankees desperately need to give a mediocre, .500 lifetime record, veteran pitcher that can't get past the 6th inning $10M plus a season for 3 to 4 years to have a chance. Just think how much better than Chien-Ming Wang some middle of the road starter could have been if we had one in long relief and didn't have to go to our minor league system for a spot starter a few years ago. Do we really need a platoon at first base? Just put a righty there that can field better than the 17 errors we had at first last season. This guy needs to calm down.

I totally agree with the article and was talking about it before.



The slumbering Yankee GM does need to wake up and doing something
(better or more than what he's done to date.. which is very little).



I don't think he's done, but a lot of guys are coming off the list.

It's a pretty depressing list.

If the offseason ended today, the Yankees would still win their division by ten games. As far as the starting rotation goes, if we don't make another move, it will look a lot different at the end of the year than it will opening day, because a couple of the kids should be ready. As far as people coming off the list, every time one of them signs with somebody, i think "good, another bum I don't have to worry about."

You know, Tarman, you said this very same thing in another thread and I
gave you a response to consider. Have you read that? WE are
not operating in silo here, Tarman. We have to GET to the
end of the season in the lead, so I don't know why you keep referring
to the END of the season. That's irrelevant.



We have holes that need filling, and it begins in the starting
rotation. It doesn't end there though. You have a lot of
confidence in a 2 1/2 man rotation, I must say.

Cashman is gonna do something good rest assured. How many times have we been in this situation and out of nowhere he makes a huge deal? It happens almost every year and I'd be willing to bet he'll do it again this year. He knows what he's doing which is why he isn't settling for the bums of the market (Lilly, Meche, Padilla, Wolf). He's gonna get someone whether it be by signing or trade but he'll do something and it'll be good.

I don't see how anything he said is wrong. Another legit starting pitcher is needed, as is a first baseman, backup catcher, and bullpen help.

Taking up a roster spot with the wrong player can be more devistating than signing the right one. As a Yankee fan you should know that because this team has carried a lot of dead weight in the past.

I'm glad Cashman doesn't overreact like many on these boards. We obviously need pitching, like every other team in baseball, but we should keep in mind that we were the 11th best team in runs given up last year. Not bad for a flawed team. With no sure thing in the market it makes no sense to make a move.


And if think Cashman isn't listening to offers you're crazy.
