    Webb would be my first choice because of the reasons you just mentioned. Lee should be an option even if he wants a 4 or 5 year deal. Him aging doesnt worry me as much as someone like Beckett. Hes not a power pitcher, his stuff shouldnt diminish that much over the course of the contract.

    What if Vazquez pitches well for us this season. Then he could be signed to replace Pettitte as the #3 starter. Cheaper than going after Lee.

    I was thinking about it the other day, the Yanks will have a very difficult time having a payroll of under $200M after this season (if that's in fact their goal, other than winning).

    Pettitte, Vazquez, NJ and Winn will be coming off the books - totals out to around $31M. DJ will be mkaing around $20M going forward and Rivera can expect the same $15M he's been making. Granderson, Cano and Swisher will all be receiving raises. Basically, if the Yankees are planning on signing Lee next offseason, Crawford is out of the question unless they want their payroll to be above $210ish.

    They could try something drastic like paying Jeter market value or a little above instead of silly legacy value. I know that is outrageous, but it might be worth exploring.

    You are right though thebo.

    As for Wandy Rodriguez, I think he is arb eligible after the season, not a FA. He's also a bit of an enigma that struggles with mechanics. I'd prefer Lee.

    Jeter isn't getting $20M/yr unless he wants a 1 or 2 year deal.

    Cashman should get an extra $7M-10M for the next 5 years for what Hank screwed up with Arod, and another $30M/yr for the rest of the contract.

    exactly. plus joba, hughes, brett et al are only going to get more expensive from here out. it's more likely that our payrol will hit $210m than 190m.

    Lots of good stuff from Cash…….good for him.. He's not taking any guff from ffice:smarttags" />Boras and he's not allowing the Yanks to look bad when, in reality, it's lace w:st="on">Boraslace> and Damon who misplayed the whole thing. lace w:st="on">Boraslace> had better get used to the idea that he can't push Cashman around.

    If the offense continues to hum this year, Crawford would probably be more of a luxury than an need, and the pitching would make more sense. On offense, you could just sign a 4th OF and potentially turn Jesus loose at DH

    I like the quote about how if a player wants to get something done here, he will……that basically, enough with the lip service.

    So far this off-season, Boras hsa charged the Yankees a premium (for Nady of all players) and hardly negotiated with Damon. If that means the Yankees bow out on some Boras clients, so be it; as Cash said, if those players really want to be here, they’ll find a way (with or without Boras).

    i really don't like a young player to just become a DH. perhaps he could split the role with catcher.

    Nomaas interviews Ca$hmoney. Excellent questions with some quality nuggets from Cash:

    SJK: Since you were given full authority over baseball decisions after the 2005 season, how do you believe the organization has changed -- whether it be fiscally, philosophically, or in methodology?

    CASH: I think we've changed in all aspects. There were a lot of people before involved in the decision-making process and now that's more defined. I felt like we were the Roman Empire where are operations were stretched far and wide. We're weren't king of the hill in player development, king of the hill in amateur scouting, king of the hill on the major league side, king of the hill on the international side…we weren't maximizing our resources at any level. We had department heads making decisions for other departments that weren't their responsibility. Now, I have localized each department to their specific area and maximized their expertise in those areas for the greater good of the organization as a whole.

    Draft day, for example, has become critically important to us again. They're vital to success and I'm proud to say that some of our recent draftees were part of a world championship team this year.
    He also goes in depth about why Reed Johnson wasn't his first choice for LF, and says flatly Montero won't be in the Majors this season (though I'd assume if major injuries hit this might change).

    Perhaps, but there are still huge questions about whether he'll ever really be able to handle C at the major league level.

    Melky had a negative WPA, WPA/LI, and clutch score. Not clutch.

    Excellent interview. Regarding Reed Johnson, he makes it like he signed Winn instead of Reed when Reed could have been had for virtually the same contract as Thames.

    Would have been a good follow up, although I wonder if a guy like Reed would prefer to be a 4th OF rather than a 5th OF. Or maybe he didn't want to be the second best Johnson on the team
