    Melky had almost 2000 ABs in a Yankeee uniform and couldn't get on base or slug. I'm happy for him now but it wasn't like he never got a chance here. He was an everyday OFer for 4 years.

    Speaking of Melky's performance -- his off the field performance includes taking a leave for the birth of his child. This will be his 4th child (I think this is the same mother from child #3 so I believe we're still at 3 moms/4 kids. ).

    Funny that the two throw-ins in that deal have had the most success to date.

    Even funnier that the team that got the guy with the most success hasn't benefited from it -- the Braves released Melky after his one awful year with them. At this point (big caveat given Vizcaino), the Yankees have gotten more with Logan than the Braves have.

    I still can't believe Melky f.... Cabrera is hitting .354 with a .916 OPS in July.

    I know, but lets see him hold it next season after he gets a fat 5 year contract
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Definitely. It's perfectly reasonable to evaluate this trade half of one season into it.

    George Kontos has pitched well for San Francisco (he got traded for Stewart).

    Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Apparently the Braves (Chipper Jones in particular) weren't too thrilled with Melky's douchey behavior earlier this week: http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/ey...-melky-cabrera

    He didn't reach the majors with the Yankees but...

    23 year old Jose Quintana's last start (at Boston)
    8IP 5H 2K

    70.1IP 43K 2.30ERA 1.02WHIP .231BAA

    The Yankees deemed him not worthy of a spot on their "prestigious" 40 Man roster.

    Those types of moves/non-moves bother me more than failed trades. I didn't agree with the Montero trade, but I could understand it. Letting Quintana and Aceves walk away when there were options and trading Kontos for a player with zero value are the kind of moves a GM should be criticized for. Especially considering some of the players who were given roster spots.
    Don't tease me, you know what I do for a living.

    Agreed. I hated the Montero trade but I understood the rationale behind it but seeing Quintana flourish in Chicago when all it took to keep him was a spot on the 40 Man, it pisses me off.

    Every year there are always multiple scrubs on there that'd be easily replaced or just re-signed once they were removed because nobody else was interested.

    Letting Quintana walk & trading Kontos for someone like Stewart is just awful.

    (Just because there are some shmucks that would go there....no I am not saying Cashman should be fired, it's the "end of the world" or some other ar-tarded exaggeration).

    Turned out to be a one-hitter. Lost the no-no with two outs in the eighth. Pirates win, 5-0.

    That is, they had a five-run lead, and their starter didn't cough it up, or anything!

    The White Sox's minor leagues now have Dewayne Wise.
    Miami promoted Nick Green to MLB. He had 82 plate appearances with the Yankees in 2006. Miami will be his eighth MLB team.
