Notes from Cashman: Trades, relievers and rotation plans

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 15, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

On this first day of the GM Meetings, Brian Cashman’s most significant conversation might have been a face-to-face meeting with C.J. Wilson’s agent, but Cashman has engaged in trade talks with several teams this winter.

“I’ve got teams expressing interest in varying aspects of our roster from the Major League 25, as well as our stuff in the minor leagues,” Cashman said. “We’re looking at a lot of different potential opportunities, but I don’t think there’s anything to worry about right now. I don’t feel there’s anything close.”

Cashman specifically named four big league players who teams have called about: Nick Swisher, Brett Gardner, Russell Martin and — when asked — Cashman said that, yes, teams have called about A.J. Burnett.

“No one has asked me about Granderson just because he’s a potential MVP candidate,” Cashman said. “I don’t think they want to bother… But those are all tradeable pieces, to varying degrees. Soriano. Robertson. Phil Hughes. I could trade Robbie Cano if I wanted to, I just don’t want to. I don’t want to trade any of these guys, to be honest.”

As he searches for ways to bolster the rotation and add depth to the bench, though, a trade is obviously a consideration. His most valuable trade chip remains prospect catcher Jesus Montero, but that sort of deal remains unlikely.

“I’ve had his name mentioned earlier today in a text message,” Cashman said. “Somebody proposed an idea and said, ‘Hey, if you don’t do this, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.’ … It’s easy for me to trade him, it’s just hard to part with him. So it makes no sense for me to define what I would or wouldn’t do. It’s in our best interests to keep him, and that’s how I’ve always felt unless a unique circumstance happened. (Cliff) Lee was a unique circumstance and prior to that, and post that, nothing has presented itself that would make me think about it.”

• Wilson’s agent, Bob Garber, seems happy with today’s conversation with Cashman. He told Marc Carig that the Yankees have asked for another meeting in New York to talk about Wilson. Garber said that today’s conversation had much more to do with Wilson than Roy Oswalt.

• Cashman is not optimistic about finding a second left-hander for the bullpen: “Do we need a lefty?” he said. “Obviously it would be a luxury to have a left hander, but with Joba coming back you have Soriano, Robertson and Joba, they all get lefties out, so we have I think one of the best bullpens in the game. Can we get it better with an additional lefty? Yeah, but I don’t think so. I don’t think that’s going to be available to us. I don’t predict a successful conclusion to that as we go through the winter.”

• On the rotation: “I expect Hughes and Nova to be in my rotation without a doubt,” Cashman said. “I expect that, but they have to continue earning that spot. Hughes in the end finished out of our pen and kind of got pushed out by circumstance but he’s better than that. He’s a rotation guy… I expect it to be CC, AJ, Hughes, Nova and the rest of it is going to come from that pack below or it will come from an outside source that we have negotiated with or trade for.”

• Cashman confirmed a report that Hughes is once again working with Athletes Performance to improve his conditioning this offseason. It was Hughes’ idea, not the Yankees, but the team is happy about it. “I think physical conditioning got him out of the gate slow when he showed up to spring training, but I don’t think it had anything to do with his season,” Cashman said. “We got him in shape. Him, Joba, we have a few guys on a yearly basis that we put into fat camp. I think (Hughes) was eight pounds over when he showed up for spring training, but we knocked it out, and he took care of it with the extra work in the spring. I don’t think that had anything to do with his season.”

• Cashman still has not heard whether Eric Chavez wants to play next season. He did say that — given the fact Alex Rodriguez clearly didn’t have his timing back — Chavez might have been a better option at third base in the postseason. “Alex belonged there,” Cashman said. “He belonged playing there. Unfortunately, the results didn’t follow.”

• Cashman once again said he’s interested in bringing any of Chavez, Andruw Jones, Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon back to the Yankees, but some of those might price themselves beyond what the Yankees want to spend.

• On keeping players out of Venezuelan winter ball after the Wilson Ramos situation: “I’m not going to worry about something I can’t control,” Cashman said. “It’s home (for some players)… It’s nothing I can control. Unfortunately, Hugo Chavez has created the dynamic down in Venezuela that’s not necessarily good for his people.”

• Cashman said he’s hoping to have time to meet with more agents while he’s in Milwaukee the next day and a half. “I texted a number of them back,” Cashman said. “It’s just trying to find time.”

    I’m confused. Is this some type of reference to his lower body conditioning as Run It Out reports??

    When was the last time a contending team traded a pitcher of Cole Hamels caliber in season?

    Contending teams just don’t trade those kind of assets in season.

    Only player in recent memory I can think of is Manny.

    He didn’t mention Burnett as somebody expected to be in the rotation next year.

    That depends on who it really was. Not all outrage on here is for real.

    If the yankees do sign CJ wilson, I dont think people will be too upset by it. He does make the yankees pitching staff better.

    hmm. definitely somebody you pissed off under another name. The whole grammar thing was weird too.

    Blake

    I said it before, I really don’t have a problem with Coach K or most of his players (well maybe Reddick, he was a punk at Duke). It’s the student body that is so annoying ( and that’s putting it nicely ).

    I heard earlier Battier has the most wins of any Duke player ( over a hundred ). I actually met him a couple of times, and he was/is an extremely nice guy. I’m looking forward to this Kansas- Kentucky game, although I doubt I will stay awake for all of it.

    I wont be upset per se…..and short term he would make them better…..but if the deal was for 5/90 or so then Im not sure how wise a longterm investment it would be…..between. think that money coukd be better spent elsewhere.

  19. Ghostwriter November 15th, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    I think Wilson could help us, but I think that the Yanks should move Burnett to make space for him in the rotation. Having both will make it tough to get the kids some chances.

    If you don’t do Thurman Martin for King Felix……ill have to ask about Montero.

  29. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Who is the player that GM would start at before moving to Montero next in line?

    Nova is the only name I can think of, not because he’s more valuable than Montero, but because he’s probably the one commodity Cashman won’t budge on since he needs pitching desperately…and trading Nova for a pitcher would be spinning his wheels.

  30. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 10:26 pm

    Jurrjens.

    “Hey, if you don’t do Gardner (for Jurrjens), I’d have to ask about Montero…and I know you’re going to say now (because you can get more for Montero than my guy Jurrjens)”.

    I think Nova’s name fits better than Gardner’s.

  33. Joe from Long Island November 15th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    Ghostwriter- that was a good pickup, about Cash not mentioning AJ in the rotation. I’m sure it was completely unintentional – to say it out loud.

    It may just be me, but I’d be a little surprised if AJ makes it to Tampa in February.

  34. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Where did Cashman fail to mention AJ? He did here on LOHUD

  39. Ghostwriter November 15th, 2011 at 10:37 pm

    Joe,

    Before today, I would have not guessed that Burnett was on the move. However, this interview that Cashman gave today does seem to suggest that AJ might be on the block. Still, it is going to be hard to move the guy. If I had to bet money on it, I would bet that AJ will be with the Yanks next spring.

    Part of me likes Burnett a lot: I like how he didn’t quit on himself, and how he was willing to face up to all of the that was thrown at him. However, AJ is an obstacle in piecing together a solid rotation: He’s getting top-of-the-rotation money, but he pitches like a journeyman. This just screws up everything…

    Joe,

    I agree. I think if somebody is willing to take him then you have to pull the trigger at this point….they just have too many other options

  42. REZ12 November 15th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    If he’s already committed to Hughes-Nova-AJ in the rotation, then only one spot is left. I’d bet that is Garcia.

  43. blake November 15th, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    kenny williams will try to get Montero for Danks but will settle on Romine. (at least that’s how it plays out in my head)

    He saod that he was committed to CC, Hughes, and Nova. He didn’t mention AJ when he discussed next year’s rotation.

  46. Yank 97 November 15th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    Cash really needs to sell Nova high. High contact, low K, mediocre control guy = not a good fit for us.

    I’d love to get rid of Hughes instead, but I doubt he could bring back anything useful – Nova could.

    Trade Nova/Romine/Warren or something for a young bat. Sign Wilson or Darvish and then let Burnett/Hughes/Noesi/Garcia or whomever fill out the rotation in ST

  47. blake November 15th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    “Cash really needs to sell Nova high. High contact, low K, mediocre control guy = not a good fit for us.”

    this is backwards thinking.

  48. Tar November 15th, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    Actually Bret I think Cash let out more than usual with that sentence. My thinking is the guy in question is Romine or another catcher.

    Don’t know why he committed to Hughes already, TBH. He should have kept everyone on their toes coming into ST ready to battle it out and made sure they all came into camp in shape and hungry. Even though we know AJ is getting a spot if he’s still here, I wouldn’t have guaranteed him anything either.

  52. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    I’m still surprised a GM would start a conversation on some player over Montero and then switch to Montero as his second option.

    Gotta be Nova.

  53. blake November 15th, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    I agree with Tar….if that statement meant anything it was probably referring to trading another catcher.

  54. blake November 15th, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    They could put Prince through fat camp and then put him in RF…….

  55. REZ12 November 15th, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    According to Carig (or the way Carig inferred the agents’ statement), Wilson AND his agent are meeting Cash in NY, not just his agent.

  56. Irreverent Discourse November 15th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Yank 97 – Yes, absolutely. Nova overachieved last year anyone can see that, and pitcher of his profile (low k, high balls in play, “effectively wild” control) are not generally successful on the long term.

  57. blake November 15th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Doesn’t Wilson have an apartment in NY?

  59. blake November 15th, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Nova sinks the ball generates a lot of ground balls…which helps mitigate his K rate…..also if he continues to develop his slider then he could get more swings and misses in the future.

    You don’t trade a young pitcher just because he wasn’t perfect in his rookie season….that’s very counterproductive unless the return is substantial.

    That’s a possibility.

    But how would the GM know Cash is going to say no unless Cash first knows the name of a player that GM is offering. By saying “you’re going to say know” could imply that there’s a player’s name being discussed between Cash and the GM before the text message arrives.

    Clare – VERY interesting! I don’t see any other way to read it. They knew this grand jury stuff was looming, and Paterno knew that he knew what he knew (if you know what I mean!) I’d say the man definitely still has tools in his toolbox and I never bought that at the age of 75 (or whatever the quoted age) he was losing the ability to realize how wrong certain things were.

    I think if someone had come up to him and said “Joe, I just saw some man having sex with your grandson (if he has one) in the shower!” Joe probably would have fully comprehended just how wrong that was.

  70. Nilsson November 15th, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    It’s unfortunate for Feliz. He really didn’t blow that lead in the 9th. The ball should have been caught.

    Anyway, Joba just posted a twitter link to one of his workout sessions. It looked like an intense upper body/shoulder exercise. Between a new elbow ligament and all of this rehab work, I can see him reverting back to ’07 dominance.

    “There is no way of knowing. We don’t have enough information to figure this out.l Bret’s guesses are just as good as yours…”

    No way man— my guesses are factual. :wink:

    Just trying to read between the lines with the available information. I really do think Cash let out more than he meant to. And my guess is it was a catcher that another GM was inquiring about.

  83. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    Tar,

    This is an expanded version of the quote:

    “Somebody proposed an idea and said, ‘Hey, if you don’t do this, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.’ …”

    It seems to imply that there’s a player Cashman is interested in but the GM holding that player wants too much. The other GM seems to be acknowledging that his demands are too high by presenting the possibility “if you don’t do this”. Then he asks about Montero just to remind Cashman that his asking price could be even worse than the original proposal. The GM tries to show a contrast between his original demand (Nova) and his final last ditch effort (Montero) so that his asking for Nova doesn’t seem too far fetched, unfriendly or offensive.

    I think it’s Danks.

  84. austinmac November 15th, 2011 at 11:15 pm

    Mac, I believe that the Yanks backed out because Kubek announced his retirement and other than Tresh, the Yanks had no other shortstops.

  87. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    Not Felix.

    The Mariners GM stated he knows Cashman would not trade Montero for his player. So this is a player not even close to being worth Montero.

    I’ve been discussing John Danks with Kenny Williams. He proposed a trade idea involving Nova and said “Hey, if you don’t do Danks for Nova, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.”

  91. Tar November 15th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    Bret

    I see it differently.

    The other GM makes a proposal for catcher X, And than says

    “Hey, if you don’t do this ( trade for catcher X), I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero”

    My translation is if you don’t trade one of your lesser catchers, I have to check on what it would take to get Montero.

    No what I am saying is a GM make an offer for one of the Yankees excess catchers not named Montero. And than says this

    ‘Hey, if you don’t do this, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.’

  102. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 11:34 pm

    OK, let’s plug in a name.

    “Hey, if you don’t do this proposed deal for Romine, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.”

    That doesn’t make sense.

    If Cashman isn’t going to do the proposed deal for Romine, there’s no point in even floating Montero’s name. It’s actually kind of an insult.

  104. DaSaint007 November 15th, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    I’d offer CJ @ 4 years $60-$72M, and a full no-trade clause. If I have to add more years and/or more dollars, I withdraw the no-trade clause.

    CC, AJ, CJ, Hughes and Nova, with Garcia as long-man/spot starter ready to take up the slack should either Hughes or Nova falter.

    CC-AJ=CJ

    Actually, that’s about right.

    He’s an old man. He’s 13 years older than his wife. He puts the house in his wife’s name to save her the hassle of having to deal with probate when he checks out. It makes sense to me. It makes sense even if the lawyer told him that the transfer wouldn’t help anything: Old people can be stubborn as hell.

  107. Tar November 15th, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    “If Cashman isn’t going to do the proposed deal for Romine, there’s no point in even floating Montero’s name. It’s actually kind of an insult.’

    It doesn’t mean it’s for the same players. It could be completely different parameters. all under the trading off of excess catcher umbrella. Every GM out there knows the Yankees have an excess of catchers. If Cashman doesn’t want to trade Romine for this package,”I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero”.

  108. Bret The Hitman November 15th, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    Tar,

    That doesn’t explain why the opposing GM conceded to Cashman, admitting he would refuse to deal Montero without first knowing the player offered from that opposing GM.

    On the other hand, if Cash and the GM established a specific name as a topic of trade negotiations, the opposing GM could assume Cashman would say no for that player if that GM wanted Montero for that player.

    Without the player name in place, there’s no way to know if Cashman would say no.

    The player’s name was in place when the original “idea” was proposed.

  109. Tar November 15th, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    “Without the player name in place, there’s no way to know if Cashman would say no.”

    The list that would elicit a yes response from Cash is very short. Cash would know ( without a name) just by knowing which GM he was talking too.

  110. Bret The Hitman November 16th, 2011 at 12:02 am

    Tar,

    If the GM knows believes it’s possible that he doesn’t the merchandise for Romine (conceded when that GM presented the notion “If you don’t do this”, it’s counterproductive for that GM to even suggest Montero. That’s just a huge leap in trade value. If he doesn’t have the goods for Romine, the talks should end without a mention of Montero.

  111. Nick in SF November 16th, 2011 at 12:13 am

    Paterno would have kept the house in his name if he thought there was any chance that Cashman would deal Montero for less than a front line starter.

    It’s just very, very unlikely.

  112. Tar November 16th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    Cashman said. “Somebody proposed an idea and said, ‘Hey, if you don’t do this, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.’ …”

    “If you don’t do this” doesn’t by any stretch mean doesn’t have the merchandise.

    A GM calls Cash asking about a catcher ( because he knows the Yankees have an excess) not named Montero and proposes a trade.

    Before Cash says yes or no the other GM says “‘Hey, if you don’t do this, I’d have to ask about a guy I know you’re going to say no on, and that’s Montero.’ …” What does he have to lose?

    I’ve explained it as best as I can, and I totally concede that I could be way off the mark.

    I’m out– goodnight everyone.

  113. UnKnown November 16th, 2011 at 12:14 am

    I hope that the Yankees pass on CJ unless they can get him at something very reasonable.

  117. m November 16th, 2011 at 3:12 am

    Just to clarify, Cash’s comment about the Montero text didn’t make sense. I agree it’s unlikely that a GM would try to entice Cash by “lowering his demands” to a Montero-type.

    It’s technically the tomato paste that’s the veggie, and they’re saying 2T of tomato paste counts as a serving, rather than the 1/2 cup of same that was requested. I think pizza is a fairly healthy food, that could be made healthier with a whole grain crust (some chopped peppers or broccoli on top helps, too). The bottom line is at least the kids eat the pizza and it doesn’t wind up in the trash. But I think calling tomato paste (and ketchup) vegetables really pushes the limits.

    Good morning.

    Which vegetable is Selig?? Squash? Selig the Squash?

    I don’t think the Marlins will get both Pujols and Reyes, unless both are willing to take below yearly market value to play there. The Marlins already have a good 1st baseman.

    If the Angels go to 5-6 years for CJ Wilson and he accepts, any interest in Ervin Santana who might be dangled for offense.

    And I’ll tell you another thing whiskey and beer are grains and vegatables too.

    Very healthy for ya’.

    In moderation, of course.

    “I’m sure inquiring teams are thinking along the Derek Lowe lines, which is to say, if the Yankees eat all but $5M per season and accept some org guy in return, then they got themselves a deal.”

    Make that all but 10 million and deal……5 million per for 2 years is a pretty fair price for some team.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    As his contract states, Burnett can block deals to 10 teams but what teams ? You can almost rule out west coast teams because of his wife’s dislike for flying.
    As for how much the Yankees will eat, it depends on how strongly they feel about his blocking the way for the next 2 years with the good young arms that deserve a chance at making the team as a starter such as Noesi, Phelps, Warren, and right behind them Betances and Banuelos.
    The Burnett that’s seen is as good as he’ll ever get with declining velocity among other reasons.

    108,

    Still leaves 20 teams to deal with……with the market fir pitching this winter it wouldn’t shock me for teams to have interest if the Yanks are willing to make him affordable.

    If you’re a team and you need a starter would you rather pay Edwin Jackson 3/40 or AJ 2/12 (which is about what it would be if the Yanks ate 20 million). Maybe the Reds or Nationals…..or even Marlins.

    Joelsherman1 24 mins Wondered if #Angels would deal Haren if got Wilson, but Dipoto forced to move him with #Diamondbacks, doesn’t want to do again. Big backer

    Joelsherman1 26 mins If #Angels land Wilson to team with Weaver/Haren will make Santana available to address offense

    Joelsherman1 47 mins Column nyp.st/rsOTCn #Yankees feel pressure to add SP, go to bottom and see what Reyes wants #Mets

    If the Angels go to 5-6 years for CJ Wilson and he accepts, any interest in Ervin Santana who might be dangled for offense.

    ================================

    I’d be interested, but wonder whether the match is there. LAA needs offense, but it really has to be infield offense or catcher. Yankees obviously have catching depth, but not necessarily anything that’ll help the Angels offense now.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
