Hard to believe all Cashman got for "ALL WORLD" Mike Tauchman was Peralta. Just another reason Cash should be fired




One deal does not a GM make.




sounded like you just touted getting rizzo & gallo for free. throw odor onto to the list of freebies. in addition to peralta, have to say cortez has worked out pretty well. reserving judgement on heaney but his start against boston was pretty damn good. how do like velazquez. the major in-season stumble was davis.




No argument on any of that. Yeah Davis is a still a mystery but he has done well other than Davis this 2nd half. And yes I am a Rizzo fan. If the tables were reversed and Rizzo was hot and Voit cold I would be questioning why Voit was in there. I also said Cashman will be here still this upcoming season. I'm not saying he will go. The winning and the deals you state this half, saved his job if anything did. Been also saying that Velazquez is a great move and that Boone is smiling but he IMO will reign due to health reasons more than likely after this season ans would love to go out a winner so that is another reason I don't get him sitting Luke and if Luke comes back cold it sure will be talked about. It already is on Twitter and sports radio and I don't listen S T radio or belong to Twitter just what I read on Yes and Pinstripe Alley. It's a great question and not everyone thinks its a good idea like some on here do.

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

If the Yankees let him go at seasons end I would get it. Not because he is the bad GM so many fans claim him to be but Hal might think after all this time it might be time for a different set of eyes.



I think it was a poorly constructed roster going into the season. Too righthanded, not enough pitching and lacking speed. That being said, the corrections he made at the deadline while keeping Hal's payroll mandate were amazing. Add that to what he did in 2016 by rebuilding this team into an instant contender was nothing short of amazing. IMO he's one of the very best GM's in baseball and has been for many years.



Aword on Boone. I think he has a little Joe Torre in him. I think he does a great job managing the clubhouse and with all the analytics running the game more then ever that along with bullpen management has become the most important part of the job. JMO




I disagree.


The Yankees HAD left handed hitters into the season. Let's not forget Aaron Hicks, who actually is a switch hitter. Also, let's not also forget this guy...




LOL....do we still remember him? It's Jay Bruce. 


With the addition of two left handed hitters in Gallo and Rizzo, it offsets the loss of Hicks and Jay Bruce, who I believe was the replacement for Luke Voit. 


Also, have we forgotten, Mike Tauchman? He was left handed! Do you recall someone in this messageboard INSISTING that Tauchman replace Brett Gardner!!!  Let's also not forget the chants that Mike Ford be given a chance at first base, fulltime!


All in all, there was absolutely NO UNDER-SIGHT, when it comes to the construction of the baseball team. 


Also, let's not forget the addition Rougned Odor, another lefty bat, in addition to the Yankees' attempts to acquire Joey Gallo in the spring.


I'm sorry but this idea that the righty-leaning lineup is Cashman's fault is utterly ridiculous. Cashman always pursues best player in the position, if the team can afford the cost. There was absolutely NO other player available, who are left handed, that Cashman could've gotten other than Jay Bruce, Rougned Odor, Joey Gallo, 


Also, this idea for having anothers set of eyes, tells me that you don't know how this works. It's not the eyes of the GM that works, rather it's his scouts and the people under him. Cashman is an EXECUTIVE.....the best! Without a doubt, he's the best. 


Let's not forget, under Cashman, the Yankees shouldve have been in the world series in 2017, 2018, and 2019......had it not been for the Astros and the Red Sox cheating. Most of the lineup in 2017,2018, and 2019.......are in the Yankees today!

Yankees longtime GM'S, it seems that Brian Cashman will eventually pass Edward Barrow.


Edward Barrow (1920-1945) 25 seasons- Hall of Fame


George Weiss  (1948-1960) 12 seasons- Hall of Fame

well Bats, first off I've been a big Cashman fan and have been for the 15 years I've been here but to deny that the starting lineup was too righthanded going into the season is just incorrect. The players that were going to get the most playing time (starters) were all right handed with the exception of Hicks. Who were guys like Bruce and Tauchman going to take a significant amount of playing time from? If you think Cashman is not very much in tune with the Major League rosters, I believe you are very much mistaken.

I do remember hearing there weren't many lefthand batters out there.

Cashman was able to get two left handed bats without increasing payroll. Year after year Yankees are in post season baseball.  Why fix something that is not broken...

Talking about left handed hitters, we've had several this season, but I was happy with the trade at the deadline, but right now neither hitter is hitting... Rizzo had four good games, and Gallo really hasn't done much but what he was known for, striking out... But something about getting those two has changed the chemistry of this team... I think Rizzo will hit, but what seems to have really helped our team is the defense both of these players have brought... A lineup of every other hitter being right and left has made us a lot harder to pitch to..

Rizzo had covid ... I really don't believe he is fully recovered.

Yes..even Cole said he has not fully recovered. A couple of days ago, he said he still cannot taste or smell anything. Hard to have any appetite for food if those two factors are impaired.


Lack of sustenance is not a good thing when your exerting energy and recovering from Covid-19.
