  1. I am hopeful that the Yankees will not sign a free agent or trade for a starter but rely on Noesi, Warrren and Phelps until the B's are ready!

  2. Cashman is doing two things here… 1. Singing the praises of his Player Development Plan(Which has been nothing short of brilliant) 2. bumping up Noesi's trade value, not too many teams would pass on the next Ivan Nova. We shall see

  3. Very few blogs are discussing how expensive and inflexible the Yankee lineup is over the next 5 years, People seem to think we can continue to give away long, expensive contracts… which we can't.

    Cashman sees this. He is looking for deals, and favorable trades like the Swisher and Granderson deals. But he is not going to overpay for anyone. Over the next 5 years, we may see 2 or 3 big deals, but the days of getting a stud or 2 every year are gone.

    The Yankee farm is going to have to help carry us through the middle of this decade.

  4. I can't believe I am the only one who sees Cuddyer for his value to the team. With no good 4th outfielder on the roster, sign Cuddyer to give us an awesome outfield rotation and add another true leader in the clubhouse. He is in the top three free agents in a truly weak class. He has intangibles (leadership, situational hitting, community service, mentorship) that put him in the top three free agents in my eyes (for the Yankees…he's obviously not in Pujols or Fielder's class but they add nothing to our team). And for all the Darvish lovers, PLEASE google articles pre-Dice-K signing with the Sux that talk about how he had 8 or so major league ready pitches that would baffle the AL East hitters. How long did that last? But I would sign Cespedes because we don't have that many good outfielders in the minors.
