Cashman addresses some issues

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Nov 01, 2007 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Just returned from the Stadium. The televised part of the press conference was pretty standard.

Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman met with the print writers later on and that’s where we got some information.

The coaching staff will be as was reported here. Cashman is settling those deals now.

Cashman said his preference was to have Robinson Cano remain at second base. But he admitted that he has thought about using him at third base if there is a need.

Joba Chamberlain will be a starter unless Mariano Rivera goes elsewhere.

Hideki Matsui will soon have surgery to clean up his right knee. He should be fine by spring training.

The decision on Bobby Abreu’s option is due tomorrow. Cashman said he had to have one more discussion with the Steinbrenners. It sounds like they will pick it up.

Cashman made it clear they want to retain Rivera, Posada and Pettitte.

He also made it clear that Alex Rodriguez is not coming back. Along with the loss of the subsidy from Texas, the Yankees still can’t believe that A-Rod didn’t have the courtesy to at least talk to them first. Cashman, Hank Steinbrenner and Hal Steinbrenner all reached out to Rodriguez and he blew them off.

Cashman said they did not “need to” get a first baseman. They are prepared to go forward with Shelley Duncan, Andy Phillips and Jason Giambi.

Back later with the audio from Cashman and Girardi.

    Good job, Pete….souds like a plan. Let’s hope that all the REAL free agents can be signed!

  2. Dr. Acula November 1st, 2007 at 4:50 pm

    1st base: what ’bout Douggie??

  3. swo November 1st, 2007 at 4:50 pm

    Thanks for the info, Pete. That actually answers a LOT more offseason questions than one would think. But of course, Cashman has also stated in the past that “Bubba Crosby is our Center Fielder”, so I guess anything is possible. I’m sure we’ll hear plenty of “Wilson Betemit is our third baseman” over the next few months.

  4. Enoch November 1st, 2007 at 4:53 pm

    I’m really hoping that Boras finally takes one in the rear. Even though ARod is the best player in the gamel, likely history (statistically), this decision has bust potential all over it.

  5. Drew November 1st, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    “1st base: what ’bout Douggie??”

    Who cares about eye chart? He’s low priority. Get the big 3 back in here NOW.

  6. Steven November 1st, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    “1st base: what ’bout Douggie??”

    Why pay for mediocre production and have 3/4 1st baseman on the roster?

  7. nate c. November 1st, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    i’m not sure it is possible. but reading your comments about a rod -> i now hate him even more.

    thanks for the scoop peter

  8. Rebecca--Optimist Prime November 1st, 2007 at 4:56 pm

    Wow, I feel a bit like the kid that gets double presents cos his parents celebrate both Christmas and Hanukah.

  9. murphydog November 1st, 2007 at 4:57 pm

    I agree that the first base line sounds too much like “We’re prepared to go with Bubba Crosby in centerfield.”

    Maybe with the new ownership/management in Atlanta it’s time to revisit the situation with Mark Tex. (Maybe talking about Mark will get us off Miguel Cabrera). What are those good people in Atl. looking for besides all our young pitchers. (Are they rebuilding or contending?) They will need a CF. We’d of course need a window to negotiate an extension with Mark.

  10. murphydog November 1st, 2007 at 4:59 pm

    So there’s your answer on A-Rod coming back. Now it’s personal.

  11. Thomas November 1st, 2007 at 4:59 pm

    I agree with Enoch. I don’t know if there is a $30 million per year for 8 years or longer out there. After what people (GM’s and other owners and media) said about A-Rod first contract, that there would be anyone wanting to look foolish with a 10 year $300 million out there.

  12. Brendon November 1st, 2007 at 5:00 pm

    i’m scared of matsui having surgery yet again.

  13. SJ44 November 1st, 2007 at 5:01 pm

    Its funny to me how one phone call could have changed things for Arod.

    Just call the Steinbrenners and leave on good terms. Why shut that door?

    Just not smart. Coupled with the actions and comments coming from Boras this week, Arod’s start to “iconic” status has hit a serious roadbump.

    He comes across looking awful in this and the Yankees come off looking quite good.

    Who would have thought that 2 weeks ago?

  14. jennifer- congrats JOE G November 1st, 2007 at 5:01 pm

    I hope the Yankees stick to their words, sounds ilke they will since they keep saying it. They would look like fools now if they went back on it.

  15. Anthony November 1st, 2007 at 5:03 pm

    What about Minky? Defensively hes just as good as phillips offensively not so much..

  16. Glenn D. November 1st, 2007 at 5:04 pm

    is anyone watching/listening to MMD, did Jeter come on yet?

  17. CA Yankee Fan November 1st, 2007 at 5:04 pm

    Doc-
    Douggie’s a FA. He’s a better 1st baseman than those on the roster, and his offense isn’t as bad as many would make it out to be.

  18. Cheesyhoboe November 1st, 2007 at 5:06 pm

    Nice to see he’s not beating around the bush. Cashman has his work cut out for him this offseason. I’m happy that he wants Cano to remain at 2nd base and that Abreu will likely get picked up again, but that 3rd base hole is a definite problem. It’ll be interesting to see where this all goes.

  19. Phil - 27 in '08 November 1st, 2007 at 5:06 pm

    Minky would have been yet another left-handed bat.

    The club has already stated they are looking to get Duncan more at bats against LHP. I guess 1B is where he’ll see those ABs.

  20. Phil - 27 in '08 November 1st, 2007 at 5:06 pm

    Jeter is on right now.

  21. Johan November 1st, 2007 at 5:09 pm

    What about the K machine Santana? Or the need of a true Ace.

  22. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 5:10 pm

    A dud put the nail in his coffin today by throwing Rivera under the bus. Now if they go get him it shows that they dont care about comrodery or loyalty. Me being Rivera or his old teamates would have no respect for the orginization.

    A-blows
    is A-HISTORY.

  23. gayle November 1st, 2007 at 5:11 pm

    Dont expect anything groundbreaking they said yesterday that one of the conditions for having Jeter on was not to ask the obvious questions Arod, Torre, Girardi etc etc

  24. Migames November 1st, 2007 at 5:14 pm

    wow, the yankees talking about cano at 3rd, arod not returning their calls, etc. Yup, if boras thought the yankees were in play, he really misread the situation. But then again, this might be the yankees turn to f with arod

  25. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:14 pm

    “Sounds like it’s not going to happen” (Jeter on A-rod coming back). Ouch.

  26. Rockin' Rich November 1st, 2007 at 5:14 pm

    Boras and Payrod can spin all they like but not taking or returning those phone calls is inexplicable — and inexcusable.

  27. gayle November 1st, 2007 at 5:14 pm

    Well I take that back just had some very nice things to say about Girardi and said about Arod:the one thing I have learned in getting to know Hank and Hal is that they are men of their word”So i dont see it happening in terms of him coming back

  28. Justin November 1st, 2007 at 5:14 pm

    Yeah that really sounds like the Bubba Crosby comment.

  29. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 5:15 pm

    Question about Jeter. Hes my favorite and im sure most of yours, but when do you think he will change positions? And what possition? He didnt look to confortable playing short last year. Mostly his throws seemed to come up short. How about moving him to 2nd,cano to third and Tejada at short. Or make a play for Young in Texas.

  30. Glenn D. November 1st, 2007 at 5:16 pm

    What did he say about Joe G.?

  31. gayle November 1st, 2007 at 5:16 pm

    He said that he likes him very much and that he is a hard worker and that he communicates great with the players

  32. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:17 pm

    “i’m scared of matsui having surgery yet again.”

    Yet again? He had the knee drained, which was a procedure with a whopping week-long recovery time.

    Pro athletes have surgery a LOT. A little joint cleanup is pretty normal. David Ortiz is having knee surgery too, most likely. Does that scare you? However, it does kind of torpedo thoughts of him maybe learning 1b over the offseason.

  33. Buddy Biancalana November 1st, 2007 at 5:17 pm

    SJ-

    Just curious, do you work in baseball? Sounds like you do, if not you really should, thanks for all the insightful postings. Maybe Peter can open a door or two for you.

  34. fleas November 1st, 2007 at 5:17 pm

    One thing to consider guys is that Arod is not known for being all that bright. He’s not intelligent like Mussina and it shows in the way he speaks. I can assure you this — although AROD had the final say — he was whole heartedly cohearsed by his super agent — boras — to take this stand. Boras really did a number on the guy. He was convinced that Arod was not expendable. When you put your trust in your agent that he/she knows best, you don’t fight/argue with them. If you did, then you have the wrong agent. SScorr had Arod fly to LA after the last game and convinced him.. “THis is what we are going to do… Your Arod! We’ll announce the opt-out during the final game of the WS!!” Arod, probably was like uh.. you sure, if you say so.. Scott, “Listen Arod, you are an enigma, you are baseball, you are the record king.. you leave the business to me, you keep swinging.. got it?”

    It’s sad that Arod doesn’t have enough brains to tell Scott that he was out of his head.. and that just maybe the Yankee’s were not bluffing. Scott, truly though they were. The Yankee’s are making a statement for all the MLB right now for future negotiations.

    I have no doubt that Arod want’s to be a Yankee very bad, and wanting something so bad, and you can’t have it.. makes you want it that much more.

    The only saving grace for Arod, if there is a saving grace, is that he fires Boras and tell the media/public that he is really sorry for letting this idiot put him in this position. Will it happen, I’ve seen for crazier things happen… does it need to happen? Yes! I believe it absolutely does.

    I for one, would love this to happen and Arod still be a Yankee. I am not happy with the shenanigans at all, but I want to see him build himself in pinstripes as a legend like others before. Which we all know he is absolutely capable of.

    It won’t be the same for him playing for any other team. So if he is gone and gone for good, and he doesn’t can Boras..

    He may have just walked away from the best thing is his life, and expect him never to be satasfied.

    The impact this could have on his psychology does have the potential to destroy him. We all know how fragile he is.

  35. ManMuse November 1st, 2007 at 5:20 pm

    I’m going to miss Minky if he’s not coming back. He didn’t hit a lot, but I loved watching him play first base.

  36. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:20 pm

    S.o.S.27

    Look for a different Jeter this year. He’s not going to be a distraction and he’s going to take back his team. He’s had to tiptoe around a lot of things and accomodate A-rod for the last 4 years to make him feel comfortable in New York. Sounds like Jeter’s ready to move on.

    MMD shocked that Jeter answered a question honestly! Well, now he doesn’t have to worry about stepping on sensitive toes.

  37. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:22 pm

    “Tejada at short. Or make a play for Young in Texas.”

    Stop playing fantasy baseball. Young is a franchise player down there. As for Tejada, he’s a malcontent in the clubhouse, doesn’t run out ground balls, and has been linked with steroids.

    Jeter’s throws don’t generally come up short. His arm is fine, it’s his range that’s becoming more of an issue. Moving him to 2B wouldn’t really help that. They’re going to have to talk about him moving to 3B in the not-too-distant future. His bat isn’t really potent enough to play 1B, though I’m sure he could handle the position pretty easily.

  38. SJ44 November 1st, 2007 at 5:22 pm

    Great post fleas and its 100% accurate.

    This is one of those moments you look back on 5 years from now and ask, “what was his thinking”?

    Last time we saw this was when Kobe pushed for Shaq out of LA. Kobe’s rep took such a hit, he’s never recovered.

    This whole episode makes Arod look real bad.

    What’s worse is, from a business standpoint, taking the Yankees out of it hurts their bidding. Its why doing what they did was idiotic.

    Water under the bridge now. Good luck to Arod and I hope he finds SF to his liking.

  39. CaptainsCorner November 1st, 2007 at 5:22 pm

    Good interview by Jeter. He actually showed some personality. Seems like he likes Girardi, and that he thinks Hank will stick to his word that the money whore is gone. He is probably begging him to stick to it.

  40. SJ44 November 1st, 2007 at 5:23 pm

    Mel,

    He’s also going to be healthier. Played all year with a bad shoulder and his knee was hurt in July and never came around.

    No need to move Jeter. Let’s not get crazy.

  41. YankeeInMichigan November 1st, 2007 at 5:23 pm

    Joel Zumaya had surgery today on his pitching shoulder for an injury suffered while moving personal belongs (such as his air guitar?) out of his San Diego home. I’m sure that Rivera’s agent took note and has just raised Mo’s price.

  42. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:24 pm

    That’s A-rod’s not going to be a distraction.

  43. stuart November 1st, 2007 at 5:25 pm

    arod is not dumb. he actually is smart just lacks interpersonal/communication skills. I read about him he is a nice but wierd dude… his inability to just chill out, shoot the breeze, not be able to just be casual…

    he in alot of ways he is a tragic figure considering his wealth and skill…he could have owned NY but he leaves like he left his last 2 stops.. he is loved no where and hated in many places……Imagine that this great athlete, it is too bad….He had the best yr in baseball I have ever seen and I am in my mid 40′s.. his 2007 is top 10 yrs of all time in baseball…………

  44. YankeeInMichigan November 1st, 2007 at 5:28 pm

    The ultimate revenge will come when the Yanks offer A-Rod arbitration and A-Rod will be forced to accept it because no one else will come close to his demands. He’ll then be forced to repair his reputation while playing in New York in a contract year.

  45. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:29 pm

    stuart,

    Another similarity with Bonds & Kobe interpersonal/communication skills.

  46. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:29 pm

    Breaking news. Torre new manager of Brooklyn Dodgers.

  47. PittsburghYankeeFan November 1st, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    I have to admit, there is no turning back on ARod at this point. ARod should have returned at least one of the calls. What harm would it have done?

    It is also interesting that Cashman was “sleeping” during the World Series, and didn’t hear his phone go off. Yeah, right…I’m sure he knew what the call was about, and didn’t take it. Perhaps that is what drove Boras to leak the news the night of the WS.

    Either ARod wants to play for someone else (likely), or he fires Boras and comes back to the Yankees with his tail between his legs (doubtful).

    Thanks for making the Yankees look good, ARod, and thanks for taking away publicity from the Sox WS win…

  48. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    Joel Zumaya had surgery today on his pitching shoulder for an injury suffered while moving personal belongs (such as his air guitar?)”

    Please…it’s not an air guitar, it’s a video game controller _shaped like a guitar_

    Get it right ;-)

  49. Migames November 1st, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    alright, alright, all this arod could have owned new york is kinda silly. Fans booed him after his 1st MVP season. If you think we wouldnt have booed him next year after he started the season 2 for 32, then you are kidding yourself. Arod could have stayed and owned new york, but he could have stayed and been booed for many many years.

  50. Paul9 November 1st, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    Boras already fooled all the owners last time with Texas bidding against themselves. If the owners didn’t take notice to that and they do it again, then enjoy the circus its your own fault.

  51. Rebecca--Optimist Prime November 1st, 2007 at 5:30 pm

    Minky and Molie have both filed for free agency, but you lot knew that.

    Torre to Dodgers official.

  52. stuart November 1st, 2007 at 5:32 pm

    Bonds is just a jerk, kobe I am not sure of him being a good guy. arod is a good guy, clueless, narcisist but not a mean guy.

    He just blew it..I doubt Boras mentioned to him that his legacy would not be good if he moved on.. He could have been in the sentence, ruth, gehrig, dimaggio, mantle, jeter, and arod….

  53. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:32 pm

    “It is also interesting that Cashman was “sleeping” during the World Series, and didn’t hear his phone go off.”

    He didn’t just say he was sleeping, he said he’d tucked in his little boy, and then fell asleep in there while reading to him. Why would he make up such a specific story, if he was lying? You keep lies simple, so you don’t contradict yourself later.

  54. Samples November 1st, 2007 at 5:32 pm

    There is no high profile 1st base free agent available for the Yankees to be posturing for. The ‘Bubba Bluff’ was purely to couteract Damon and Boras when everyone assumed the Yankees were going to throw whatever $$ they asked for. Well played by Cashman, and a prelude to the Abreu trade.

    Fleas, not that I want to sound like an Arod defender, but I’m not sure what you heard to say he is not well spoken or unintelligent. Quite the contrary, his intelligence, over thought, and very carefully crafted quotes lead to his disliked persona. We’ll never know who’s idea it was to announce the opt out during the WS, but don’t think for a second that Arod takes orders from Boras. Quite the opposite.

  55. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 5:32 pm

    Someone mentioned earlier A dog to the Dodgers. Does anyone else think that the Dodgers might not make a run at him the same reason why we wont? They got screwed in the Drew deal with accusations of tampering. That being just last year. I know its business but it had to have ate at them. If were out and maybe the Dodgers, Cubs looking for ownership, Sox pissed at the rain on thier parade. That leaves Angels, Mets and Giants. SJ your right, pack your bags A bum your going to alcatraz.

  56. Scott Borat November 1st, 2007 at 5:33 pm

    Torre named Dodgers manager. Press conference on Monday.

    Good luck Joe.

  57. Diane November 1st, 2007 at 5:33 pm

    A couple of different TV stations have broken the news that the Dodgers have announced Torre as their new manager.

  58. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:33 pm

    Pittsburgh,

    Did you not hear the story from Cashman’s own mouth? He was putting his son Teddy to sleep and fell asleep while reading him a book. C-money is one cold mother if he’s going to use a kid as an alibi. lol.

  59. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:34 pm

    “but he could have stayed and been booed for many many years.”

    Fine. If that’s why he left, then he should be man enough to say it. Say the fans are too fickle in NY, the media is too intrusive, and he was tired of his family having to deal with it. Don’t give us this nonsense about “being unsure” what the organization is going to do in the next five years.

    It’s the disingenuous nature of it all that bugs me.

  60. Dan C November 1st, 2007 at 5:34 pm

    I was listening to Howard Stern this morning, and Artie (a die-hard Yanks fan) said that he has heard that Jeter and Girardi aren’t too close. He talked about how Girardi was sort of an outcast from the “in crowd” on the team when they played together. Do you know anything about the relationship of these guys??

  61. Paul9 November 1st, 2007 at 5:35 pm

    If Arod fires Boras and apologizes does anything change?

  62. Migames November 1st, 2007 at 5:37 pm

    i heard that bababoey doesnt like chad curtis…

  63. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:37 pm

    whozat,

    That’s right. Why would you put your young son in the position to have to commit perjury?

    “No, daddy wasn’t reading to me. He looked at the phone and said I don’t want to talk to that mother****er. Mr. Lawyer, what does mother****er mean?”

  64. Christine November 1st, 2007 at 5:37 pm

    “Sounds like it’s not going to happen” (Jeter on A-rod coming back). Ouch.”

    That and it also sounded like Jeter wasn’t all broken up about it either.

    I think once it is all said and done, the team will be better without Rodriguez. I think Jeter has taken a back seat in his role as captain, and now he can get back to being the Derek Jeter we all know and love.

  65. stuart November 1st, 2007 at 5:38 pm

    if it would never happen except in the movies but if arod said 2 weeks ago, I am happy in NY. I do not want to test the market I will sign for 7 additional yrs at $25 mill. per for a total of $175 mill, I want to finish my career in NY, then there would be no more booing EVER..

    But of course he and borass are coniving to get every last penny, scheming and conniving to make every last penny..When I mean every last penny with these guys that is what it is……

  66. Jeremy November 1st, 2007 at 5:38 pm

    ARod’s departure from the Rangers was pretty strange too. He took a pay cut to go to the Red Sox but the Players Union blocked it. Then the Rangers named him captain. Then he was on the Yankees seemingly overnight. Seems like a thousand years ago, but it was only the 2003 offseason.

    In an alternate universe ARod stayed on the Rangers as their captain, brought the team a championship, and was hailed as one of baseball’s greatest leaders.

  67. murphydog November 1st, 2007 at 5:38 pm

    So A-Rod is really a great person, he just has this little, nagging problem of a deficit in interpersonal/communication skills? Take the crack pipe out of your mouths, guys.

    Little A-Rod ain’t in the first grade. He’s not supposed to still be working on the basics of being a person at 32 and with more money than he can spend in three lifetimes. A-Rod’s problem is not that he doesn’t know how to express himself properly or that he just doesn’t realize how things look because he’s a minority kid who grew up in a broken home. His problem is that he’s been pampered since he was 17 years old, promised the world and mostly getting it. If he bears any relationship to a child at all he’s a spoiled brat. As a man he’s a narcissistic, selfish, arrogant a-hole. Stop excusing his piggish behavior.

  68. Migames November 1st, 2007 at 5:39 pm

    so now its arod’s fault that jeter grounded out in all those double plays

    ;)

  69. Dave November 1st, 2007 at 5:40 pm

    The yanks need a right handed power hitter – either as their third or first baseman or their centerfielder. If the yanks have some crap player at third, mienky at first and melky in center our lineup becomes avewrage at best with really no right handed power whatsoever minus posada when he bats from the right side. BAD BAD MOVE. This isnt even the time for cashman posturing – everyone knows we have all lefthanders except for jeter in our lineup. We need righthanded hitters at first, at third, centerfielder – all. Its cant be phillips at first this yr. aND IF IT IS, it cant be melky in center. Unless we somehow get tejeda or Miguel cabrera at third.

  70. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:42 pm

    “That leaves Angels, Mets and Giants”

    The Giants…I would think that they just finished trying to build a team out of one superstar and a bunch of other guys, and so they’d not want to do it again. And they already have one mindbogglingly bloated deal on the books, with Zito. Though, maybe they’ll reason that Alex is young, so it could be like it was around the turn of the century, when they went to the series with bonds on the roster. Huh.

    My money is still on the Angels. He’s the guy they’ve been looking for for years, if they’re willing to pay him the cash. I wonder…does that leave Chone Figgins without a position? I’d not mind getting him and trading Johnny somewhere else. He’s a great leadoff guy, and he can play CF just fine. If Melky, Kennedy and prospects net us pitching, and a AA/AAA pitcher + cash can get Figgy, then Damon could net us some tasty AA/AAA position player prospects, or maybe bullpen help and salary relief.

  71. Christine November 1st, 2007 at 5:43 pm

    “So A-Rod is really a great person, he just has this little, nagging problem of a deficit in interpersonal/communication skills? . . .”

    Just to point out a few things too, I just lerned he didn’t show up to accept the Hank Aaron award not once, but twice now.

    Also, last year he was in Southern California when they held Corey Lidle’s funeral and he couldn’t be bothered to go. I can understand if he felt odd or didn’t know him that well, but neither did Jeter, and he went.

    I don’t think Rodriguez is a bad person, I think when he talks, he talks with his “inner monologue” which has hurt him time and again. But with Boras, I guess time will tell, but it truly sounds like he is the dog to Boras’ leash.

  72. Peter November 1st, 2007 at 5:44 pm

    Its all about how much Boras makes. He didn’t want Arod in front of the Yankees because they might convince him of the extra value in being a Yankee. Therefor, he cut off all communication between his client and the Yankees.

    Boras only cares about how much he makes off the contract, not about his client’s overall interests.

  73. mel November 1st, 2007 at 5:44 pm

    migames,

    I know you’re just kidding, but I’m kind of tired of hearing about Jeter’s GIDPs. Did he have twice as many as the next guy? I don’t know, but I doubt it. I believe that Posada had a lot, too. I’ll wager, too, that a lot of those GIDPs came in the last part of the season when he was bothered by injuries.

    Sorry for the rant. If Jeter could cut down the GIDPs, improve his range, and keep it in his pants he’d be PERFECT.

  74. Brayden November 1st, 2007 at 5:45 pm

    Sorry to be off of Arod, but I just hope that the Yanks keep Melky, he could be the next Bernie Williams. I hope.

  75. Dave November 1st, 2007 at 5:45 pm

    Fact is, melky cant starts if we dont sign a first baseman or a solid third baseman or trade for one. We should try to trade damon or giambi plus money to a team for a third baseman or a third baseman and then, sign one of the top centerfielders in free agency. Or we can sign Lowell and trade for a first baseman and start melky in center.

  76. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 5:46 pm

    The Giants need to sell tickets. $ whore does that.

    Im all for Figgy but not giving up all that.

  77. SJ44 November 1st, 2007 at 5:47 pm

    If you get a shot, check out the Jim Kaat Q&A on the YES Network site.

    Its great! He has a lot of interesting things to say about the Yankees, Girardi, Arod, etc.

    This isn’t some Shakespearian play folks.

    This is an agent and a player who believe they are bigger than the game and bigger than the Yankees. They aren’t on either count.

    Life goes on and I highly doubt the Yankees will cease operations because Arod is no longer at third base.

    I am more interested in the Mo, Posada and Andy negotiations.

    Hopefully, they are wrapped up in the next two weeks. Then, we can wait and hear the latest Boras excuse as to why he is “worried” about the direction of the Yankees.

    One other thing……Pete broke the Torre to the Dodgers story two days ago.

    Let’s not give anybody else credit for Pete’s work.

  78. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 5:48 pm

    “Its cant be phillips at first this yr.”

    This I agree with. They need about an 800 ops out of both infield corners this year, and there has to be a good righty option at both positions for when we face lefties. Is Shelley Duncan that guy at 1B? I really don’t think so. I think he’s a decent righty power threat off the bench that can hold down 1B for a game, or a corner OF spot for a few innings. Pinch hit him for Abreu or Matsui or Giambi against a guy they have TERRIBLE numbers against, or something. But I don’t think that Duncan/Phillips/Giambi is a good 1B option for next season.

  79. Buddy Biancalana November 1st, 2007 at 5:56 pm

    SJ-

    Assuming you missed my question posed to you earlier, Iam assuming your answer is yes.

    What do you think of the proposed Crede/Damon swap plus cash from the Yanks?

  80. Boston Dave November 1st, 2007 at 5:58 pm

    why does everyone think the angels would just want to give away figgins? it would probably take a top prospect. is he that much of an upgrade over damon? i personally dont think so.

  81. LathamJoe November 1st, 2007 at 5:58 pm

    SJ44:
    I agree that the actions of a ARod and Boras have made the Yankees look quite good. But the Hank and Hal Circus need to use some restraint in dealing wuth the Media on the ARod issue, because the public consensus can turn very quickly.

    a recent article attributed to Hank’s statements:

    “Alex Rodriguez isn’t going to be a Tiger in 2008, but maybe he’ll consider an offer from the Toledo Mud Hens.

    On Sunday, after SI.com reported that Rodriguez would opt out of his contract and become a free agent, New York Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner told the New York Times, “Does he want to go into the Hall of Fame as a Yankee, or a Toledo Mud Hen?”

    Not very bright for a MLB V.P.!

  82. swo November 1st, 2007 at 6:03 pm

    I believe one would call what Hank said a “joke”, LathamJoe.

  83. SJ44 November 1st, 2007 at 6:05 pm

    Joe,

    But, it did help Arod get an offer from the Toledo Mud Hens today!

    True story, the Mud Hens offered him a 35 million dollar deal, loading with incentives, today! lol

    Notice, no Hank, Hal or Randy Levine at the PC today. Cashman spoke for the team. I think that’s what we will see for the most part from hereon out.

    Buddy,

    I don’t work in the game but know a lot of people in the game. Been around it my whole life which (unfortunately) is considerably longer than the average age on the blog! lol

  84. SJ44 November 1st, 2007 at 6:06 pm

    Crede is not enough is you trade Damon. Personally, I wouldn’t trade Damon. When healthy, he is a catalyst to the offense.

  85. LathamJoe November 1st, 2007 at 6:07 pm

    Maybe, swo, but if it was coming from a baseball fan and not a MLB executive. I have no love for ARod but he’s obviusly one of the most all-round gifted baseball player ever.
    The reference to entering the AAA Mud Hens Hall of Fame was an obvious slight.

  86. Christine November 1st, 2007 at 6:08 pm

    “Let’s not give anybody else credit for Pete’s work.”

    I will most definitely second THAT! Thank you, Pete. I love your site.

  90. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 6:12 pm

    I see the WhiteSox getting Rowand back.

    Someone has to go Giambi, Damon or Matsui. I think Damon is the easier of the 3 to move. My pick would be Giambi,but that would mean eating most of his money and getting less in return. I wonder if Oakland would take him back with prospects for Chavez.

  91. Dr. Acula November 1st, 2007 at 6:12 pm

    Dan C-

    I wouldnt take anything Artie says seriously. Now, if it was Jackie the Jokeman, that would be different. Jackie rules.

  92. Boston Dave November 1st, 2007 at 6:19 pm

    s.o.s. – i think the yanks will go for a right hander if they trade for anyone. not chavez. crede, cabrera, i wish scott rolen was at least on the radar (i know i am in the minority there).

  93. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 6:27 pm

    I mentioned Chavez because the A’s dont like spending and he is their most expensive player at 10 mil. He has also been hampered by injuries so my guess is they might want out from his contract. We might be able to get out from under Giambi and get something(not the best option)needed in return. Then look for firstbase or the outfield for right handed power. Again he wouldnt be my first choice(Crede and Beltre,maybe a healthy Rolen),but he might help by addition by subtraction.

  94. fleas November 1st, 2007 at 6:29 pm

    Uhh.. Do you people have a clue what you are talking about?

    “Fleas, not that I want to sound like an Arod defender, but I’m not sure what you heard to say he is not well spoken or unintelligent. Quite the contrary, his intelligence, over thought, and very carefully crafted quotes lead to his disliked persona. We’ll never know who’s idea it was to announce the opt out during the WS, but don’t think for a second that Arod takes orders from Boras. Quite the opposite.”

    FYI, Cynthia.. Arod’s wife is highly intelligent and is a psychotherapist of all things. Don’t think for a minute she is not persuading him on his way of speaking, the same way Boras persuaded him to opt-out.

    Arod, has little ability to think for himself. He is very confused. Trust me.

  95. whozat November 1st, 2007 at 6:32 pm

    “My pick would be Giambi”

    Everyone’s would. If they could eat only half his money and get a middle reliever from A ball, I think they’d do it. But he has a no-trade and won’t go, and nobody wants him.

    They need to unjam the OF/DH situation. Damon and Matsui both have value, but Damon actually expressed willingness to go. If he can get us good stuff in return – and we can get a new leadoff guy – then I think that’s the move you have to make. Does Damon catalyze the offense, when healthy? Yes. But Figgins makes the Angels go. If they get ARod, he has nowhere to play anymore, and Orlando Cabrera can leadoff for them just fine. So, I think he’d be available. Not for a song, but for a good-but-not-top prospect and cash. They’ll want some of that after signing ARod.

    And then we could include Melky in a deal for Santana…or trade Abreu. It gives us a new leadoff guy, and options.

  96. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 6:37 pm

    whozat,
    Gaimbi has said no in the past knowing that he has a starting position on the team. Im sure he would change his tune now. All you would have to tell him is go in a trade or go hang out with Pavano. He knows he isnt needed as before.

    As far as Figgins to replace Damon, that would be a great pickup if we wouldnt have to lose our top flight minor league pitchers.

  97. Boston Dave November 1st, 2007 at 6:38 pm

    whozat, figgins can play a few positions and cabrera is not a good leadoff hitter. i think you are underestimating what the angels would want for figgins. they realize how valuable he is to their offense. i think it would take a premium prospect to get him.

  98. Jeff in MA November 1st, 2007 at 6:39 pm

    I’m with Brayden, I hope they keep Melky. We FINALLY have a decent arm in center field and now everyone wants to trade him.

    I’d like to see them use the ARod $$$ to get a third baseman (Lowell). Outbidding the RSX for free agents hasn’t been too difficult lately.

  99. S.o.S.27 November 1st, 2007 at 6:41 pm

    Lowell is probably staying in Boston.

    free agents lost to sox
    One word DICE

  100. Jeff in MA November 1st, 2007 at 6:43 pm

    We got Jawnny though. They can have DICE.

  101. Real 1B please November 1st, 2007 at 6:43 pm

    Cashman is fine at 1B huh? Last I checked, Duncan and Giambi are lousy 1B and Phillips would be coming off a season-ending wrist injury. Sean Casey (career .301 BA/ .366 OBP hitter, .296/ .353 w/ only 42 SO in 453 AB this year) with a litle bit of Phillips for tough lefties would be better. I’d even bring back Tony Clark who’s better than al of them. Cashman is already weakening the defense by not re-signing Mientkiewicz. Also Boston would still have the edge at 1B in Youkilis like they’d have the edge at 3B if they kept Lowell, DH (Ortiz), and Ramirez (LF), and might have the edge at catcher (Varitek) if Posada signs elsewhere. Pedroia and Cano cancel each other out, so the only clearcut edge the Yanks have is at SS (Jeter).

    If Posada signs elsewhere, the Yanks have to get a real 1B.
    If Baltimore doesn’t pick up the option on Kevin Millar, the Yanks should sign him in a heartbeat.

    The Yankees should decline Abreu’s $16M option because it’s too much money for 34-year old (on 3/11/08) awful RF with limited power who could easily give you his first half of 2007 all year thus be 1989-92 Jesse Barfield II minus the defense. He wouldn’t be protected by A-Rod anymore and the Yankees are too lefthanded. They have plenty of lefthanded hitting in Damon, Cano, Matsui, Giambi, and the left sides of Posada and Cabrera. They need to cut the shit and offer Andruw Jones a year and say $15M ($1.5M > he made this year and $2M > what they’d clear buying out Abreu) to play CF. Jones would cost the Yanks $15M + $2M Abreu’s buyout = $17M,
    only $1M > Abreu’s option, $2M > Abreu made this year. Jones is not getting 2 or more years from anyone after the lousy 2007 he had BA/ OBP/ SLG wise. I’ve read the Dodgers, b.s. cuz their oufield is set (Juan Pierre in CF, cheap kids who hit .300+ Ethier and Kemp in the corners). Jones did, however, post 26 HR and 94 RBI though and would be the perfect infusion of righthanded power the Yanks need. Also, Melky has the talent to equal Abreu’s ’07 HR total (16) and drive in 85 runs (a modest increase from his 73 this year), only 16 less RBI than Abreu which is o.k. cuz (Melky) will save at least 10 runs with his defense so it just about balances out.

  102. G. Love November 1st, 2007 at 6:51 pm

    I keep having fantasies of Arod dressed as Darth Vader picking up Boras dressed as the Emperor and throwing him over his head to his death.

    I know it’s wishful thinking, but man oh man, has Boras led this man astray. He’s turned him into Bonds without the drugs (unless he is in the Mitchell report). This guy is universally loathed, will be trashed by the NY media for the rest of his career and all for more money. It’s sad.

    I wish him the best. I think if he had the cojones to fire Boras and call the Yankees and ask them for a 2nd chance they would really consider it, but it would have to happen fast and I’m pretty sure Boras has Arod locked in a room somewhere with indoor batting cage, some free weights and a constant loop of cartoons featuring subliminal messages in them.

    What a shame.

    This team is going to be okay. Pettitte and Mo are the keys. Get them back for sure and it all falls into place.

    And for those of you knowing Hank/Hal, I’m a little stunned. I like the guys. I like the tough words and the commitment to winning they seem to have. If they were buffoons, Girardi wouldn’t have been their pick. They wouldn’t have okayed Eiland and spent what they did to retain Kevin Long and I can guarantee you they realize they want this last season in the old stadium to be a historic one.

    I can’t wait to see the moves and how this team fleshes out. Personally, I like Hank/Hal a lot.

    “I’m pretty sure Boras has Arod locked in a room somewhere with indoor batting cage, some free weights and a constant loop of cartoons featuring subliminal messages in them.”

    Hysterical! Absolutely hysterical. Not far from the truth either.

  104. Joe G is the man November 1st, 2007 at 10:28 pm

    Yankees are a better team without ARod.
    Everyone else will play better now. Arod is great, but his energy brings down the team. He isn’t worth the wins he brings and they can be made up easily.

    Yankees have a glut of pitching as it stands now. I would keep him as a reliever, if I were them. Put in Kennedy and let Joba take on the role as set up man for Mariano. Dare I say let Mariano become the set up man and let Joba close. Yankees need a reliable closer to win games. Papelbon and Oki have won a lot of games for the Red Sox.

    Watch out for the Mets as they want Posada and will give him a longer contract than the Yankees will. Yankees need to be careful.

    Considering that A Rod has been with the Yankees several years now and they haven’t been to the World Series during his tour of duty with them a few coments are in order. He plays very well during the regular season, but in the playoffs, when it is time for him to shine, he does badly.
    Does he swallow the Big Apple in the post season games?
    It looks that way to me. It also seems as though his nick name should be changed to O Rod.

    I think both he and the addition of Clemens this year may have had very bad influence on the Yankee morale. it was like saying “You guys are not good enough. We need a magic bullet. It is Clemens.” Well, that didn’t work out too well and it cost a lot of money.

    So, a good bye to O Rod and a good bye to Clemens are in order. Clemens is finished; O Rod will try to hook the next john who starts to make a bid. Good riddance to both of them.
