Cashman: “I like the team that we have”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 12, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Less than three weeks before the trade deadline, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman does not sound like a man preparing to make a splash.

“I think we have quality players at every starting position,” Cashman said. “I think we have quality players at every spot in the rotation and every spot in the bullpen. There are guys who are coming off the DL. I think we have a quality bench. I think the only question you could ask is, do you want to take on the payroll and more importantly distribute future assets for what might be considered marginal upgrades.”

Russell Martin is struggling, but how many can’t-miss, two-way catchers are out there, much less available? Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira have underperformed, but they’re not going anywhere. The outfield is due for a boost when Brett Gardner comes back, and the Yankees should know by the deadline whether that’s going to happen. They can adjust their plans accordingly if he has another setback.

“We’re going to have to evaluate regardless,” Cashman said. “We’re going to walk through that process. I’ll have to keep ownership advised, and we’ll make decisions accordingly. But as we sit right now, that would be the circumstances that we find ourselves in, which is good.”

Clearly the Yankees could improve the roster, but they’re pretty deep as it is, and they believe that acquiring a clear upgrade would come at a massive cost. A solid, middle-of-the-rotation starter isn’t necessarily going to help this team. Neither would a middle-innings reliever or a bottom-of-the-lineup bat. They could make a small depth move, but there is little urgency to go after an impact player.

“I like the talent we have,” Cashman said. “I like the team we have. You’d have to put the pedal to the metal to overpay or significantly pay to find something that everybody says, ‘This just significantly upgraded this aspect of the club.’ If you do that, it’s going to come at a hell of a cost.”

    Shame,

    Mustellier isn’t a late bloomer. We signed him out of Cuba last year. Not like he has been in the minors for 8 years and is breaking out or something.

    —————–

    Just saw this, thanks for the info. I didn’t really read up on him enough, I just saw his age and what not.

    He seems like a guy the fans could get behind rooting for though if he shows something.

  2. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Ok, I don’t expect Cashman to say that the team needs to improve in a certain area because then the story is “Cashman rips Player” but at the same time – I’m soooooo sick of his woe is me approach to making deals – that everyone’s price is too high, blah blah blah…

    If you’re legitimately happy with the team as constituted then, I’m sorry, you’re a fool. If you don’t want to make trades because you believe you can’t find what you need on the market – that’s fine. But if you don’t want to make trades because teams aren’t dumping contracts for marginal prospects like they did 10 years ago – suck it up.

  3. NYYROC July 12th, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Chip, Agreed. Other teams move players. Texas is really agressive. Don’t want to see Grienke, Hamels, Upton etc. wind up on LAA, Tex & Detroit while Cashman picks up another Qualls.

  4. Nick in SF July 12th, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    What’s the upgrade we need? Who’s sitting or leaving to make room for it?

    ———————–

    Don’t get me wrong – if he doesn’t want to pick up Grienke or Upton or Hamels because he doesn’t think they would be a fit here or represent a great enough upgrade – that’s a baseball decision and that’s fine. But if he doesn’t want to go after them because “the price is too high” well then he’s no better than the fantasy GMs on these sites who want every trade to be a clear win.

    In fact, I would prefer for him to not make a big trade because every time he does he goes on the radio for the next few weeks airing out buyer’s remorse which in turn makes fans freak out.

    If he had come out after the Montero deal and said “we gave up a great talent but we got back someone who is just as great a talent and fits our team better” that would have been that – but instead he went out there saying how he wasn’t sleeping at night because of this, that if it goes badly it would be a disaster…blah blah blah – just shut up Brian.

    —————–

    Well that’s the other thing – if he wanted to he could probably go out and offer the Braves a deal they couldn’t say no to for McCann: Banuelos, Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams and Tyler Austin – he could do that and they would say yes and that would be a huge upgrade behind the plate.

    But if he’s confident with the team as it stands – and feels like the offense can weather Martin behind the dish – that’s fine.

  7. 86w183 July 12th, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    You guys should know better than take pulic posturing as reality.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Cashman is sending the message to all G.M.s that he has no sense of urgency…. nor should he.

    All moves are about the same thing. Value and cost. All G.M.s calculate that differently depending on the players and contracts involved.

    Would Cashman do Phelps and Nunez for Hamels. Of course that would be low cost and great value, but the Philliles wouldn’t. The Yanks are as good as anyone in baseball top to bottom and have reinforcements coming in Joba, Gardner, Pettite and on Tuesday CC.

  8. blake July 12th, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    nearly every trade Cashman has made has been with little to no speculation surrounding it at all…..

  9. blake July 12th, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    I like the current team fine as well….it could be improved but it’s pretty good….it’s the 2013 team and beyond that I’m less confident in and anytime you can upgrade now and the future at the same time those are the deals I’d be looking for if I were Cashman…..that in addition to the smaller moves that can help this year.

  10. bruceb July 12th, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    Will the Yanks win the AL East with their current roster? Almost certainly.
    Will the Yanks win the World Series with their current roster? Unlikely.

  11. Nick in SF July 12th, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    Just so I understand you, Chip, you’re saying that Cashman is a fool if he’s really satisfied with the team as constituted and his rhetoric annoys you and he should just shut up?

  12. J. Alfred Prufrock July 12th, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    NYYROC July 12th, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    One of the dangers of having such a good record at the ASB is that it could lull Cashman into thinking the team doesn’t need to make moves. Afterall if it ain’t broke why fix it. The team is definitely built to win the regular season (talent & depth), but the post season is more about somebody getting hot (can’t plan for that) and impact, game changing players. Don’t have much confidence that ARod, Tex, or Swish can do that. Don’t think Cashman will make a move for a game changer.
    ///

    Alert post. I’d say though, of the three, I’d have greatest confidence in Alex to adapt situationally in postseason than the other two. Still hoping Alex will find a gear and go off for a spell, and hopefully, that coincides with the postseason. The problem with aging players is they just can’t sustain those hot spells like they used to, and Alex is a thoroughly compromised player, relative to the player that carried us three years ago.

    You worry – or I worry – that Cano is just going to get slop in the postseason more than ever and that the stakes therein, plus the realization that he lacks true protection, will cause him to try to do too much. Granderson in the cleanup spot would be an improvement toward that end… they’re the two bats who can turn on you. Grandy, though, is another concern, because he’s prone to the big swing and again, I worry that he will be trying to do too much…the bottom of the lineup is also a deep concern.

    What would be helpful is if Gardner can make it back, that he won’t be beat up and maybe by the time the playoffs are here, he will still be fresh and able to take up where he left off against Detroit in the ALDS. After Posada, he was the next guy shortening up and getting on base. We desperately will need him to be that player again, especially if Cashman does nothing to upgrade the team. THe pitching is very strong, but we’re going to sorely need everything to go right in the lineup to go deep in the playoffs.

    Having said that, and believing Cashman’s narrow view of offense to be his sincere take (OBP and the long ball), I still think it has to have sunk in that they need a high average contact hitter who can hit line drives. I don’t believe for a minute that they’re not at least considering making a splash to gain some youth and upside to the lineup. Being in first overall is the perfect cover to lay in the weeds and pretend you think you have everything you need.

  13. blake July 12th, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    I still think the Cards are an interesting potential trade partner…..they want to win now….they need pitching….and they have a GM that has proven willing to make bold moves to win now…..perhaps he’d be even more inclined to do so given that they are trying to repeat.

    They don’t want to trade off the big club but they have some interesting prospects they could offer….and the Yanks have some of what they need….

  14. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    —————–

    Agreed and I like that. I could just live without the post trade handwringing from the GM.

    You made the trade and already are having second thoughts? That’s not exactly giving the fan base the warm and fuzzies.

  15. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:15 pm

    Nick in SF July 12th, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    Just so I understand you, Chip, you’re saying that Cashman is a fool if he’s really satisfied with the team as constituted and his rhetoric annoys you and he should just shut up?
    ——————————–

    More or less.

    I think any GM who is totally satisfied with his team is a little bit of a fool. I think a GM who has a team with Martin’s production behind the plate and Raul Ibanez defensively in LF and the injuries in the rotation would have to be a grand fool to be satisfied with the status quo.

    That said, I do not expect him to say anything other than what he did – and that rhetoric doesn’t bother me because it is typical GM speak. What does bother me is the immediate regret he shows after making a trade or signing a player – usually GMs will say how excited they are to bring in a player – instead Cashman talks about how he’s not sure he did the right thing, he gave up too much, paid too much….etc.

  16. jacksquat July 12th, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    What Cashman says is for public consumption, including other GM’s, keep that in mind for everything he says.

  17. m July 12th, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Why would you give up all those players for McCann?

    That’s the point Cash is trying to make. sure you could improve the team, but it will be at a significant cost for a not so significant upgrade.

    Yes, I realize that McCann is a big upgrade over Martin. But, McCann doesn’t significantly upgrade the team.

  18. J. Alfred Prufrock July 12th, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Who needs Cashman to qualify his deals with post-deal rhetoric. His confidence in a trade, or lack of it, does not shed light on whether the deal is a good one or a bad one.

    I don’t sit around waiting for Cashman to rhapsodize about someone they’ve acquired. If it’s one of those under the radar acquisitions whom I am not familiar with, I’ll do my own looking around. Hyperbole from the GM, one way or the other, isn’t what I’m looking for, as a member of the fanbase.

    That said, he put Pineda in an awkward position by saying that nonsense about if he can’t develop a changeup, Cashman will have made a mistake. Way to go, dude.

    ————————————

    It would be really interesting, but I just don’t see it happening. You don’t often see contending teams deal quality players off their big league roster for prospects. You see the Yankees do it even less frequently.

    Now, if you wanted to say that Gardner’s not coming back and could the Yankees and Cards do a deal where the Yankees get Jon Jay for David Phelps….that might work. But I’m not sure Phelps represents the impact pitcher that St. Louis is hoping to get.

  20. Nick in SF July 12th, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    “What does bother me is the immediate regret he shows after making a trade or signing a player…”

    He said complimentary things about Montero and gave a frank assessment about how the Yanks took on more risk in the deal; doesn’t the fact that he did the deal in the first place mean more? And he didn’t say he regretted it.

    He also had a few comments after the Soriano singing, since it directly contradicted what he’d said on the subject earlier.

    When else has this happened?

  22. J. Alfred Prufrock July 12th, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    Cashman is who he is. He is a cover my a s s guy who lacks class. Calling Ian Kennedy an “NL pitcher” was ridiculous. I had no idea he said that. Calling Joba fat was also a low blow. Never mind that “Posada’s the DH unless he plays himself off of it” crap.

    I don’t like the guy, I don’t like his baseball philosophy, either. But I’m stuck with him. I hope he gets a bat without destroying the system.

  25. CountryClub July 12th, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    The Yanks have Joba, Pettitte and Gardner coming back. All three will make a difference in their unique ways. And the Yanks dont have to trade anyone to get them.

  27. Howe Farr July 12th, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    You remember that time that Cashman gave us playoff-bound teams each year except one? Those were the good ole days!

  28. EA July 12th, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Yanks need to get a bat.

  29. 86w183 July 12th, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    Chip I don’t know where that’s coming from on all those trades I don’t remember anything of the sort.

    There’s nothing wrong with a GM acknowledging he hated to give up the players he gave up. Would you prefer to hear something like this:

    “Montero is a lazy piece of crap who can’t catch. I can’t believe those idiot Mariners gave us Pineda AND Campos for him. I’d have taken either one” ??????????

  30. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    For the record: Outside of his handwringing over the price of players in FA or Trades or his public buyer’s remorse the only problem I have with Cashman is the continued use of Nardi Contreras as the guy running the organization’s pitching program.

    His results have been tremendous. Though you can’t dismiss the fact that Brian does have a greater wealth of resources than any other GM in the game to work with.

  31. m July 12th, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Imagine how disappointed Detroit, Anaheim, and Phillies fans are. Oh yeah, Boston, too!

    Yankees just plugging away. Hoping for a strong second half. We play the AL East teams a ton. Hopefully, there’s a collective effort to keep he foot on Boston’s throat.

  32. jpmatrixfan88 July 12th, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    No problem Shame. Mustellier is an interesting guy who has hit at every minor league level they put him at. Has played 2B, 3B, and all 3 OF spots. He can be a useful super sub type for us going forward, probably next year. He is tearing up AAA.

  33. Tackelberry July 12th, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    No reason to empty the farm for a possible 3 month rental. Then everyone would be screaming that we gave up 3-4 good prospects and have nothing to show for it. As for Upton, again it depends on the price. Would not give up both Williams and Austin in same deal. One or the other

  34. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    No, as I said earlier, what I would prefer is: “we gave up a great talent but we got back someone who is just as great a talent and fits our team better”

    As opposed to harping on how much of a disaster the trade could be or how he’s lost sleep over it…

  35. Nick in SF July 12th, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    I’m not aware of those instances or what Cashman supposedly said that rankled you, but fair enough.

    ————–

    But where would that bat play? There aren’t that many good hitting catchers in the league – even fewer who are available.

    Really the only spot is LF and the Yankees are only going to get a LF if they’re convinced Brett Gardner’s not coming back.

  37. m July 12th, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    The “bat” could also be Swisher’s replacement starting next season.

  38. tomingeorgia July 12th, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Howe,
    Right on. He should be shot now.

  39. CountryClub July 12th, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    The Yanks dont need a bat. Could they use a catcher that hits? Sure; but none are available. I guess maybe they could get an OFer if you’re one of the fans that hates having Gardner out there. But I’m not one of those fans, so I don’t see the need for a bat.

  40. CountryClub July 12th, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Wow, Chip; we think too much alike.

  41. yankee21 July 12th, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    Hopefully Cashman is just speaking for public consumption. If he actually believes Russell Martin is just “struggling” and there are no reasonable alternatives for catching or he believes they do not need a contact bat, he has his head in the sand as do all his yes men surrounding him that are parroting what he wants to hear.

    There is no question this team needs to upgrade at the catcher spot and there is no question NY needs to start serious planning for the probable departure of Swisher and potential departure of Granderson on/before the end of next season.

    Their starting catcher is hitting near .200 since May 1 of last year. That is garbage. They have a guy 40 years old playing OF they have Andru Jones playing OF at what 37? And they have a guy in Gardner who cannot stay off the dl. There is nobody at AAA who can step in right now and replace either of their production unless you count Mustalier who was signed as an IF but is being “Nunezed” as a utility player. Dickerson can catch and throw and run but do you want him starting for any length of time. How about Nix? How about Laird?

    BTW, will NY chief competition for the AL crown be standing pat this TD as well?

  42. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    On a completely unrelated note – good deal for both the team and player in the Encarnacion signing.

  43. G. Love July 12th, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    I think he’s scared out of his mind to make a deal on the heels of the Pineda/Montero deal.

    Yeah, neither side is looking great at the moment but at least Seattle has 2 healthy assets as opposed to 2 injured pitchers one of whom is seriously injured.

    Now that Austin Jackson, Kennedy and Melky are all doing really well in other organizations I wonder if he’s seriously gun shy about making deals.

    I think the plan will be free agents and development going forward with him hoping to hit on Chavez/Jones/Ibanez types on low risk 1 year deals until some of the bigger contracts fall off the payroll.

    The good news is that means they’ll resign guys like Cano, Grandy and Hughes.

    The bad news is we’ll make no trades for marquee players who hit the block because he doesn’t want to pay the cost and run the risk that the player they get is injured or the prospects he trades realize their potential.

  44. Wave Your Hat July 12th, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    For 2012 all the Yanks need for a good shot at winning the WS is for the pitchers to come back and to avoid further injuries.

    It would be good to get Gardner back but not necessary. The Yanks have been winning with Martin/Stewart and I don’t see why that can’t continue.

    I certainly wouldn’t trade any assets which could be useful in 2014 and beyond unless I got a similarly useful player back.

  45. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:45 pm

    m July 12th, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    The “bat” could also be Swisher’s replacement starting next season.
    ———————

    Agreed – but where do you put him now?

    I mean I would love for the Yankees to get Bryan LaHair – but if Gardner does come back, where do you play him? DH over Ibanez? Ok…that’s fine, I’m down with that, but I don’t think the Yankees will go that route.

  46. Niblick July 12th, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    Cashman has spent way too much time the last couple of years climbing down tall buildings as if he were Spiderman, bartending while wearing clown wigs, and bedding down a bunch of real loser women. Combine that with the numerous off-the-wall comments he’s made to the media during this period, and you wonder if he’s been going through some kind of mid life crisis that is affecting his commitment to the team.

    It’s time for Cashman to put a little thoughtful effort into the team.

  47. Bret The Hitman July 12th, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    Beneath the posturing, I think it’s pretty clear the Yankees need to add an outfielder. Gardner is on uncertain ground. That’s reason enough. Never mind the fact that Swisher will walk for absurd money and Granderson is a long-term liability if he wants a 15-20 mil contract.

    What are our options this season in-season?

    We’d all love Justin Upton but I think the best we can hope for is Quentin, Willingham or DeJesus.

    We will sign Melky Cabrera in the offseason.

  48. m July 12th, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    Depends on the player. If he’s versatile, then pit him in LF. I love Gardner, but I’m not encouraged by the setbacks. Not counting on him until he’s pain free.

    Cano, Grandy, and Hughes have proven they can play in New York. That’s something that’s difficult to impossible to determine before pulling off a trade.

  49. 86w183 July 12th, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    Chip —

    The only time he did was you just described was over Montero. The Soriano comments were simply to re-establish his credibility since he was so open about NOT signing Soriano before Randy Levine convinced Hal to overrule him.

  50. Jerkface July 12th, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    On a completely unrelated note – good deal for both the team and player in the Encarnacion signing.

    Good for edwin but they just locked up a guy for 3 years @ 9 AAV for ~80 games of production. Risky.

  51. Shame Spencer July 12th, 2012 at 2:52 pm

    jpmatrixfan88 July 12th, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    No problem Shame. Mustellier is an interesting guy who has hit at every minor league level they put him at. Has played 2B, 3B, and all 3 OF spots. He can be a useful super sub type for us going forward, probably next year. He is tearing up AAA.

    ————————-

    Do we have word on his defense? Could he be the new Nunez… like, one that can actually catch and throw the ball?

  52. m July 12th, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    What do you guys think they’ll do with Nunez? I haven’t heard much about him since he was banished to AAA.

    If he’s not Jeter’s replacement, he should go as a piece for the next big trade. I think he can play in the majors, I’m just not convinced it will be here. I place a big premium on defense, but on the other hand if Jeter went down there’s no immediate everyday replacement.

    Side note, Nix, Chavez, Ibanez, Jones are all better than expected. Of course i wasn’t expecting much. :(

  53. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    ———————

    I completely agree with this.

    But is Cashman going to give up the players needed to get Upton? I don’t think Cashman has the players to get Upton. Arizona’s going to want ML ready talent – outside of Banuelos and Nova the Yankees don’t have that. A couple of days ago I suggested it would take a third team to get Upton to the Yankees – something like dealing some combo of prospects to the Cubs for Starlin Castro and then packaging Castro along with additional prospects to the D’Backs for Upton (Drew is a FA at year’s end)

    There are other guys available: Carlos Quentin, Denard Span, LaHair, DeJesus, possibly Ichiro, possibly Alex Rios, possibly Josh Reddick – it’s all a matter of what you’re willing to pay for those players.

    You can’t say that you want Cashman to go out and get Reddick or Quentin but not give up someone that we consider to be a top prospect to do it.

    Do we have word on his defense? Could he be the new Nunez… like, one that can actually catch and throw the ball?

    ——————–

    No, Mustellier is challenged defensively. I asked the AA beat guys earlier this season and they said he’s held up at 3rd best (as far as IF goes). But I dont think he was playong much OF at that point.

    “The good news is that means they’ll resign guys like Cano, Grandy and Hughes.”

    or sign Cano, let the other two walk and sign cheap junk to fill in the gaps while pointing to the new CBA with fake disgust.

    m July 12th, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    What do you guys think they’ll do with Nunez? I haven’t heard much about him since he was banished to AAA.

    If he’s not Jeter’s replacement, he should go as a piece for the next big trade. I think he can play in the majors, I’m just not convinced it will be here. I place a big premium on defense, but on the other hand if Jeter went down there’s no immediate everyday replacement.

    ————————

    Reason you haven’t heard much is because he’s been on the DL most of the time he’s been down there (he’s played in 4 games)

    I think Nunez took a huge step back. He was given the opportunity this year to emerge as a Ben Zobrist/Chone Figgins type for the Yankees but his defense is just so poor at all three infield spots that they can’t trust him in that role. So the goal now is to have him focus strictly on improving his defense at SS so that maybe he can be phased in there when Derek steps aside. Or at least to improve his trade value, because no team wants a middle infielder who can’t field unless he hits like Soriano did.

  58. blake July 12th, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    “Good for edwin but they just locked up a guy for 3 years @ 9 AAV for ~80 games of production. Risky.”

    Yea….I think AA is somewhat of a gambler….folks said the same thing when he signed Bautista after such a short amount of success and that’s turned out pretty good…it’s risky but if he locks up players cheaply and it works out then that’s more money to spend elsewhere.

  59. Shame Spencer July 12th, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    m – Those convinced the team was serious when they said Nunez would replace Jeter were way off the mark. It was never going to happen with Jeter’s contract running through 2014 (I have every reason to believe Jeter will use that option). I think, unfortunately, this might be another case of us not capitalizing on making a move while his value was higher. Cervelli is another player we could have moved but didn’t sell high on. It could be argued Gardner has been another.

  60. Chip July 12th, 2012 at 3:02 pm

    FWIW – Brandon Laird is still only 24 and he’s started swinging a better bat lately, but I’m unconvinced he’ll be anything more than a AAAA player.

  61. jpmatrixfan88 July 12th, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Shame,

    Not really sure how good his defense is, but I would guess he is a decent defender.

  62. Wave Your Hat July 12th, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    The new CBA doesn’t really punish the Yanks for spending over the cap more than the old CBA did. What the new CBA does do is add a bigger carrot – a potential rebate of a portion of revenue sharing payments – for not overspending the cap.

    So you can’t demonize the new CBA – rather the new CBA is making the deal too sweet too resist.

    Thanks for the info. I wish there was a premium placed on playing good defense by our minor league coaches. S’far as I know there could be but I hate that we have a lot of young players in our system that don’t seem to be very reliable defensively. That seems like something that could/should be more easily fixed than bat issues.

  66. m July 12th, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    It’s pretty clear that Arizona wants to dump Upton. Pretty sure it has more to do with his contract than his ‘tude.

    Cash got a much friendlier contract from the White Sox in the Swisher trade (looking back it was great for the Yankees) without giving up much.

    Upton is a better player, but the teams with assets to get it done might not have the need or want to take on salary or deal with re-signing him.

    Donnybrook might be barking up the right tree on his stance on Upton.

  67. m July 12th, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Shame,

    Good points. But Gardner was a cheap OF that allowed us to spend elsewhere (Grandy). Not convinced Cervelli would have brought back much. If course now, he’d bring back nothing.

  68. Warning Track Power July 12th, 2012 at 3:11 pm

    “I like the talent we have,” Cashman said. “I like the team we have. You’d have to put the pedal to the metal to overpay or significantly pay to find something that everybody says, ‘This just significantly upgraded this aspect of the club.’ If you do that, it’s going to come at a hell of a cost.”

    That’s all any Yankees fan needs to read.
    Cash summed up the situation and there is no room to argue with the man.

  69. comet July 12th, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    Chip:
    “Agreed – but where do you put him now?

    I mean I would love for the Yankees to get Bryan LaHair – but if Gardner does come back, where do you play him? DH over Ibanez? Ok…that’s fine, I’m down with that, but I don’t think the Yankees will go that route.”

    I’d like a guy like LeHair on the team too but unless you can trade Swisher in there or assume that Gardner will not return you have no place for LeHair. Why would the Cubs want to get rid of a guy like Lehair unless there was an obvious over pay on the Yankees part? Lehair is much further advanced than Montero. Think of what we’d give up to get him.

    We can talk all we want about upgrades but any we get would be costly in terms of aquistion cost and possibly the 2014 goal of an $189 million payroll.

    This team will require a third baseman in next few years and will have to stay under the salary cap while carrying ARod’s $30 million in dead money. I don’t think ARod is going to be a better player in the future than he is right now. Doesn’t his contract carry him until he is 43? That’s six more years. That means we have carry him somewhere unless he retires. Even then I don’t know how the CBA will treat his salary. Do you?

  70. Shame Spencer July 12th, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    m – I can’t remember for who right now and it’s killing me but I’m certain there was a deal on the table for Cervelli that the Yanks pulled back on. I think it was during last season but it may have been the one before…. they all sort of bleed into each other lol :D

    Does anyone else know if I imagined this almost-deal with Cervelli? It was before he had the concussion issue I believe..

  71. blake July 12th, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    —————————

    I’m hardly a minor league expert, but I think that the idea is that if you find a special bat you can find a place to play him defensively. They do have a couple of solid defensive players down there – Ramiro Pena and Doug Bernier – but they can’t hit.

    Also – it seems to me that outside of the rotation – most of the AAA roster is made up of filler. Guys you can call up if you need to, but no one you would consider for a regular job at the Major League level. Maybe that’s why guys like the Almontes are still in AA? Might have something to do with the AAA Yankees being nomads this season? Not sure.

    Maybe they’ll try moving Mustelier around – but – much like Montero – his bat might have more value at one spot than at another and moving him would decrease any potential trade value he might have.

  85. Shame Spencer July 12th, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    comet – I’m a little surprised at the number. Those are two big deals that are going to be hard to balance as the years go by. They have a ton of money locked up in 5 players right now (Parise, Suter, Heatly, Backstrome, and… man… I keep forgetting his name… whatever, someone else!). Now, a lot of that money will be off the books in a couple of seasons but Parise isn’t a 40-50 goal scorer or anything. They’re going to need a few more pieces to compete. Should be interesting to watch. I’m still really sad that he left but some things you can’t control. Just wish I didn’t have him sign my Devils starter jacket…. it took me about 3 years to even find one. I’ll have to get another and have Marty sign it lol.

  86. blake July 12th, 2012 at 3:26 pm

  90. Shame Spencer July 12th, 2012 at 3:28 pm

    Ah, this might be what I’m thinking of. Still not a big return m but it’d be more than he’d be worth now probably:

    Via George King, the Yankees were close to trading backup backstop Frankie Cervelli to the Pirates for right-hander Brad Lincoln recently, presumably sometime over the weekend. “It was very close but [we] couldn’t agree on the value of the players,” said King’s source.

  109. Giuseppe Franco July 12th, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    I’m not exactly one of Cashman’s biggest fans these days but the anticipated lack of deadline move(s) does not necessarily suggest the front office doesn’t feel this team doesn’t have room for improvement.

    Cashman does often speak from both sides of his mouth at times but I do believe him when he says he’s always looking for ways to improve their chances of winning a ring this season (as any GM should).

    But he also has to weigh any options and determine whether adding pieces is worth the cost – especially in terms of players other teams would want in return.

    For teams like the Nationals, Pirates, and Dodgers (among others), there is more of an incentive and sense of urgency to improve the team because they are used to being sellers at this time of the year and are not usually in the playoff hunt heading into the 2nd half.

    But for a team like the Yanks……the fact that they are perennial WS contenders and teams often expect a bigger return from them for the same players does put a little bit of a damper on potential deadline deals.

    Sometimes the cost to improve the team in a given season doesn’t always make sense long term.

  110. luis July 12th, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    Hello everyone,

    25 hours to game time….Thank God we are so close to see basball again, I am getting restless.

    About Cashman´s take: I think the team is one good contact/ average/impact bat short…But I wouldn´t pay the price that it would take to get an impact player and put this team over the top. So if he doesn´t make any moves, I´ll be fine with it. I think the moves are going to happen in the off season though, which ones remain to be seen. I njust hope that he doesn´t gut the farm, but on the contrary, he is enhance it.

    G Love, I think that you are right on your take.

    Stephen Strasburg was asked about the inning limit that the Nats have on him and said that they’ll have to rip the ball out of his hands to shut him down – which is what you want to hear.

    I wonder though if despite the talk whether there will be a backlash against him by the other players on Washington, especially if they’re in a dog fight down the stretch and here you have this tremendous pitcher, who is healthy, and sitting on the bench.

    Also I wonder what the response will be from players towards the organization – that they’re putting him ahead of the rest of the club by saying that he’s more important than winning.

    It’ll be interesting to see how that plays out.

  116. yanks 27 July 12th, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    The Yanks simply need their own players to perform this October.
    CC needs to pitch like an ace and dominate like he did in 2009, not be the below-average pitcher he has been in every other postseason of his career. Ditto A-Rod. Guys like Tex/Swisher have to figure out how to hit in October. No idea what they’ll do about their C position, but that is a blackhole.

    Have to hope Soriano can get big saves in October and not wilt like most other closers do and hope the rest of the pen doesn’t melt down like in 09.

    Cahsman has been burned so many times in October, I can see why he;d want to take his chances with what he has, knowing anyone they get won’t necessarily guarantee them a better chance of advancing. Can never guess when bats will go cold or when a pitcher will have a bad day. And based on this year, there’s a good chance a game or two might be wrecked by errors in the field.

    Why would there be a backlash against Strasburg from his teammates (or fans) when it’s not his decision to make whether he gets shut down or not?

    The organization is making that decision for him. He literally has no say so in the matter and it does make at least some sense considering that he already had to miss a season due to TJ. Of course he’d continue past his inning limit if the decision was entirely his to make.

    These are uncharted waters for the Nats so the excitement of a pennant race and a potential spot in the postseason is only going to motivate the players even more. It’s a lot more fun to come to work everyday when you’re winning than when you’re in the cellar and just playing out the rest of the season.

    I don’t see any potential backlash against Strasburg at all (at least not from teammates).

    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.
