    Thanks Snapple. I had a typo that's since been corrected. That was probably the focal point of the confusion.

    In fairness, Towers donation of Bauer to that three-way trade made that happen. Don't see how Cash can match that for 1 year of Choo.

    I'm no expert, but this seems highly counter-intuitive.

    Thats because you are trying to apply common sense to addiction. If it were that simple nobody would be an addict. Some people feel there is a drop off after 5 years of sobriety, but again I'm not including people who simply stop for a couple of weeks or even a year or so.
    So every 12 step program teaches, yet their success rate is no better than those who spontaneously abstain.

    this is true, but what Snapple said is true too. The two points aren't really related IMO.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    Cashman is giving Ichiro another year so that they can have more t-shirts to sell when he is limping around for his 3,000th hit in 2014.

    When George made foolish reactionary moves, it was because he wanted to win above all else -- and he never shied away from making follow-up moves to buy his way out of his mistakes. Cashman and Levine seem to be only concerned with making their pals at Goldman Sachs and News Corp. as much profit as possible.

    They are in for a rude awakening once they realize that corporate luxury box clients, the ones who spent $1,250 a seat, won't be re-upping to see a 75-win collection of geriatrics.

    Yeah it makes no sense to me to walk away from a 2 year deal from Martin...yet give Ichiro a 2 year deal based on a hot two months of production, and ignoring the rest of his 2012 season (and 2011 for that matter).

    Ichiro probably has zero chance to get to 3,000 as a Yankees. He currently has 2606 hits. He would need to get close to 200 hits in both 2013 & 2014. Not likely at age 41.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    cashman is really taking it up the pooper this winter... granted, i know he's working with a tight budget and doesn't have full autonomy, but you'd think he'd get creative with some trades by now... we certainly have the pieces, and seeing what some other clubs gave up for above average talent (i.e. choo), it saddens me that he's getting anally violated so badly

    Cashman should be held accountable for the performance of player development under his leadership. Had he done a better job the organization would be in a much stronger position as it attempts to get under 189.

    Didn't Martin just have two hot months last season or there about?

    His Youkilis press conference was supposedly full of his typical Cashman hubris and snark -- "Well you don't win a trophy for having the highest payroll"

    Well you do win a trophy for winning the World Series, and the fans care a lot more about that than making sure that Hal has a little more money to squander on horse racing next year.

    Martin also hit quite a few home runs - some of them quite important - and blocked everything that came his way. Between Martin and Ichiro, I see Martin as the bigger loss, given the alternatives.

    Wonder if Cashman will jump ship when his contract is up, or react to possible criticism that he can't win with a smaller payroll...

    I agree. Its much more difficult to find a competent catcher than a 39 year old corner outfielder with no power. Given the contracts that were handed out this offseason, what Martin got from Pittsburgh was peanuts.

    The Yanks FO has gone corporate. They know Ichiro's pursuit of 3k hits is worth millions in advertising. Signing him is all about profits leading up to a sale of the team.

    I think the Ichiro signing was more about ensuring that we only have one OF spot to fill come 2014.

    Then they'd probably want him for a 3rd year...

    Why would Ichiro's pursuit of 3K hits be that important? It's not like Jeter who got all his hits as a Yankee. A Rod should get 3K and at least a good many of those hits were as a Yankee.
