    I don't think they were being particularly patient this postseason. Granted I don't have data to back this up but I distinctly recall our hitters routinely swinging at bad pitches. They were just flat out missing the ball.

    What in the world is this man talking about? How about instead of trying to invent silly catch phrases, he learns how to draft and develop pitching?

    Clippard, Robertson, Aceves, Melancon, Ramon Ramirez, Coke, Phelps...Have all had success as ML relievers

    Hughes, Kennedy, Chamberlain, Nova, McAllister have all had success as ML starters

    Vizcaino and Banuelos are far from busts...

    Cole, Storen, Fister, Bard are also technically draft selections under Cashman

    Kontos and Garcia had a lot of success in small samples this year

    Its been far from a perfect job, but lets stop acting like there has been no success over the past 10 years.

    Berkman would be delicious. Except for the whole knee thing.

    I am sorry, I forgot which of these is a top-flight starter for the Yankees. Please refresh my memory.

    Re: The Big Hairy Monster Thread

    Because producing top-flight starters when picking so late in the draft nearly every year is something that's to be expected. Hughes and Joba could have been those guys, but they never lived up to the hype. Cole could have been it, but he didn't sign.

    Sh.t happens.

    You said "draft and develop." His post was responsive. Your reply was not.

    lol i think you forgot your own point. The ability to draft and develop pitching is what you called into question. I never said any of those starters were studs, but I don't see how Cashman can be blamed for Joba and Hughes regressing.

    Re: The Big Hairy Monster Thread

    How many prospects come through MLB a year? How many turn out to be "front line starters?"

    Keep in mind, your definition of front-line starter seems to be a perennial CY contender.
