    I'd agree, but today it's been dominated by the latter.

    Nope both are doing a fine job in this thread.

    Except I would say there are a lot of posters being rational and the homers are jumping on them with hyperbole.

    Nah, we've got to get this thread to 100 pages... that will be really impressive for a guy who won't throw a pitch this year

    The other big problem this creates for the Yankees is that now they need to go out and get another top of the rotation guy this offseason because they can't count on Pineda for next year. So this will cost us further prospects or a big long term contract. Nothing we can do about it, but I'm not afraid to call the trade a loss, even this early.

    I'm a bit bothered, because this is exactly why people tend to HATE Yankee fans. I live in Michigan, my dad, brothers and wife-in-a-month are the only Yankee fans I know. People loathe Yankee fans because of the attitudes that are displayed in this thread. Most of the people sticking around to continue posting and discussing are fine. It's the drop by "Cashman made a bad trade. We lose. Fire cashman" posts that I am addressing. People expecting the GM of ANY team to win all of their trades is just asinine (Hank Hill asinine).

    Coffee had a great point that he traded someone who didn't really have a place on the team (I get that it's up for debate). I think that the FO was probably thinking "hey, we might not be able to sell any higher than right now" and got what they could. That's absolutely their call.

    You cannot call this trade as a win or loss yet. I'll step away from this thread to cool down, but I thought I'd say what is bothering me so much. It's only fair to you guys, and to myself, for perspective's sake.

    The "he had no place on the team" argument is post trade rationalization I only saw on NYY fans.

    Not even Cashman said it because the trade was a simple talent for talent trade that both teams felt made their team better.

    I said that Montero "having no place on the team" was an idea that posters made up after the trade to help them rationalize the trade. He was considered by most to be a "generational bat", yet I'm supposed to believe the Yanks wouldn't have found him 500 ABs between C/DH this year.

    Unfortunately I was right about everything involving the trade, though that's little comfort now.

    Nothing can be done-- lets hope the rest of the rotation holds up. Hope he recovers well.

    @THEBOSS

    This line of thinking was created after the trade. I never thought he'd be a catcher, but to say he had no place on the team is a huge stretch.
    Is this the unanswered challenge? If so, we knew the DH would be clogged between A-Rod and Jeter. And actually, I much prefer the DH as we have it now. Raul/Jones/Nunez and then resting is really nice. I think it's much better than having ONE guy DH. But, I suppose it is nice when you are actually carrying 3 catchers (regardless of skill of catching). But, this is where it runs into the realm of opinion, and I did say that Coffee's post was subject to debate.

    I thought I did respond to you. I guess I responded to someone else saying what you said.

    Anyway, I conceded the point-- it's in there somewhere, I promise.

    I'm not sure I agree with the first part of that -- I think it's too early to tell what we'll think of Nova by years end, and where Kuroda settles in and whether he comes back. That said, I've always been convinced that if Hamels is available, there's a good chance they'll pursue him, Pineda or not.

    I can't call the trade a loss at this point. Obviously for this season, but there's still a long way left.

    No worries. He's a good kid; easy to root for. He's going to have to walk through fire to be successful, but it's doable. A lot riding on it for him and his family.

    I'm assuming most people got the Pineda questions wrong in the Prediction Contest.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    With how packed our rotation is this year, this may turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

    I didn't hate it. I thought the mariners wonnth trade almost exclusively because of what we are seeing now. I had wished if they moved him it would be for someone a bit further through the injury nexus.

    I always understood the logic of the trade, I simply didn't agree with the trade. Nothing to do now but wish Pineda a speedy recovery

    There will soon be a "Pineda rule" to go with the verducci rule. Something tells me very few GMs will repeat this mistake from now on.
