    i find it rather hard to believe that anyone could have tex as her favorite player, tex's mommy daddy and wifey not included.

    I don't like the current bullpen with one too many sidewinder specialists. Need to upgrade before the playoffs.
    Please fire Cashman, so some Yankee fans can have hope again.

    Chamberlain will very likely be back in the next 15-30 days.
    Rivera remains an outside possibility for the playoffs.

    I dont trust Eppley at all. I've been waiting for the bloom to fall off that rose for awhile now.

    It's been a very good bullpen and bullpens are flaky as it is. Guys get on hot streaks, guys lose/gain confidence.

    Bullpen has been a strength, even Eppley has pitched some quality innings for them.

    Tough luck last night. They can't win them all.

    He needs other options as those two you can't count on quite yet. IMO, I don't expect Rivera back this year. We need another power arm besides Joba possibly coming back. One that can get out leftys and rightys.

    I'm not satisfied with Nix either as the Yankees need a true backup middle infielder that can field the position competently and hit a little.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    Cash,

    Your work is not done this season as you have a team capable of winning the WS, but you need more help. Your bullpen needs some credible arms, enough with the one dimensional specialists. Adding Joba isn't enough. If you had Mo then no problem, but I doubt you'll get him back this year. Your outfield needs another capable player due to Gardner's lost season. Catcher, well Martin is taking "suck" to a new level there. You might not be able to address all of those concerns, but 2 out of 3 is an improvement.

    Of course, all of this is predicated on Pettitte coming back and being effective along with CC, Kuroda and Hughes/Nova.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    Not sure what trades people could be calling for this year. Hammels? We got CC, Kuroda, Nova, Hughes, and Pettitte expected back, so we wouldn't pay the moon to get a SP at this time like that. Bullpen? Soriano has been excellent, and so has most of the bullpen on a whole. We're also getting Joba back, and Mariano is a small possibility. Good luck getting a catcher who can rake. So the only thing we could trade for is a LF with Gardner likely done. Adding another decent bat at the right price would be good, such as what we went for in Lance Berkman a couple of years ago. I haven't paid attention to any trade rumors until now, but that's really the only type of player I could see getting, a veteran bat as a rental. As it is, the rotation of Jones, Ibanez, and Chavez has done a decent job with getting big hits.

    From doing a small bit of looking around, I would take Juan Pierre from the Phillies. Hitting .305 with 21 steals. We could use some speed.

    Check re Joba, but maybe he'll come off the DL even sooner. I think the last hurdle is pitching back to back. Also, isn't Aardsma also in the queue for us ?? So Qualls and Eppley are likely toast. Qualls for sure has to go.

    Sure would be nice to have George Kontos and Jose Quintana in our system right about now.

    What's it to you?

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    kontos was a fungible relief arm... i'm not really mourning his loss

    the quintana thing is a little harder to swallow, given all the trash we had on the 40-man at the time he was released... but then again, no one could have seen he'd be this effective

    Yeah, most who followed the minors knew that Kontos could probably be a quality middle reliever in the majors (perfect place for him to bloom btw) and werent sad to see him go (albeit for Chris Stewart).

    But with the 500 LHP we have on the roster its amazing we didn't keep the young one with better upside.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    With all the raving (psychotic) comments about Nix by Joey G, Im a little afraid Cash isn't going to look for an available UT ala Hairston in 2009.

    Victorino would be very nice and perfect.........almost meaning its not going to happen.

    Not worried about pitching so much.

    Normally I would agree on Kontos but I didn't like the Stewart trade from day 1. It was unnecessary, and given the relatively unsurprising regressions from Wade, Eppley, and the general suckitude of Qualls, Kontos would be a welcome addition to the bullpen right now.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    Wait...um...did Cashman really get Ichiro for two relatively non-prospects?
    Yeah I know he's a corpse of Ichiro! and an overpriced no power corner outfielder, but he's still got a GG defense and maybe, just MAYBE he might get hot again with the Yankees lineup protection and the chance to play in a WS.
    Worst case it is a non-factor washed up defensive OF traded for non-factor prospects, best case who knows what bonus.

    That is, unless Farquhar is some big lottery potential that I don't know of.

    Ichiro may be a corpse of Ichiro, but on a team where ARod is already a corpse of ARod, his contributions may be sufficient. We just need him for the next three months, and I'm optimistic he can contribute.

    Somehow, I don't see a player named Farquhar ever playing for the Yankees.

    One down, two to go with the add of a bullpen arm being the likely one to get done.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    For $2.2 million it's not a bad pickup...for his speed alone.

    But this nonsense about how he is going to somehow rejuvenate w/ the Yankees...I mean, come on. He's a spare part....basically 25th guy on the roster.

    He's a low risk guy, yes. I think he'll be a semi-starter unless he REALLY stinks it up.
    Attention Steinbrenner and front-office morons! Your triumphs mean nothing. You all stink. You can sit on it, and rotate! This is George Costanza. I fear no reprisal. Extension 5-1-7-0.
