Odds and ends from Cashman

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 30, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Standing at the top of the Landmark Building in Stamford this morning, Brian Cashman talked about more than his catching situation. These are a few of the miscellaneous notes.

• Cashman said he’s actively looking for additional infield depth. “It’s an area that I will focus on, but whether anything materializes from that area (is impossible to say). We have people on the roster currently. It’s just, what’s the ability to upgrade on it? What’s the availability in terms of what’s in the marketplace, both free agent and trade? Does any of that make sense with the cost associated with it, whether it’s your assets as a player or a dollar amount? And if you do anything in that capacity, how does it take away from all the other areas on the field that we need to address as well?”

• With Mariano Rivera’s new contract about to become official, Cashman said he feels no need to add another late-inning reliever. “On top of Mariano?” Cashman said. “I don’t think that’s necessary. I’m not opposed to it, but it’s not on the need list. If we get something added to the bullpen, it would be something that presented itself that made too much sense in the marketplace, whether it’s trade or free agency or what have you. It wouldn’t make much sense given the team needs and the remaining dollars that we have.”

• Cashman indicated that he has not had any — or at least not very many — conversations with Eric Chavez. He’s not even sure whether Chavez wants to play another season. “That I’m not aware of either way,” he said.

• Derek Jeter’s recovery is going well, Cashman said, and the Yankees still expect Jeter to be ready for Opening Day. “Actually very good,” Cashman said. “He had a checkup a couple of weeks ago in North Carolina and everything is going very well, so he’s going to be ready for us by Opening Day. He’ll be a restricted player early in camp, but all indications are very strong for a full and healthy recovery. He just has to wait it out, that’s all.”

• Of course, today’s New York Post including a not-so-flattering photo of Jeter looking out of shape. “The one thing you don’t have to worry about is Derek Jeter,” Cashman said. “Bottom line is, the most important thing Derek can do right now is rest. … I saw that the picture said he’s heavy. I can’t tell you he’s heavy. Even if he was, I’m not worried about Derek Jeter in that capacity in any way because you’re not going to find anybody more committed to being the best that he can be than Derek Jeter.”

• Cashman said none of Jeter’s checkups have indicated anything about him being out of shape.

• Cashman being predictably vague on the trade market: “I’m engaged. I’ve talked to everybody on several occasions to make sure that there’s no opportunities that we’re going to miss out on. If there’s a chance to match up, you explore those options, but matching up is difficult.”

• Big picture look at the Yankees offseason going forward: “We obviously have more work to do,” Cashman said. “The priority has been pitching, and step by step, we’re getting that piece back together again. I think we’ll feel really good about the staff as we start. There’s two sides of the ball, you’ve got to do defense and an offense. The defensive side, I think is getting addressed pretty strongly, and the offensive side we’re going to have to start focusing on.”

    yup. just like losing pujols crippled the cards

    They did replace him with Carlos Beltran and a bunch of young prospects that actually produced. The Yankees couldn’t afford Beltran and we have no prospects :( The cards also only won 88 games??
    ==============
    If they don’t give Cano $200 mil they could very well sign a player comparable to Beltran. Who knows what they could have in Corban Joseph and by the start of the 2014 season Tyler Austin and Slade Heathcott could be ready to contribute as well.

    The Yankees – all team – will survive the loss of one player.

    I just think the moves they’re making now are circumstantial and not indicative of a smart, savvy business approach.

    They haven’t proven they can do that all that well just yet.

  3. blake November 30th, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    The Cards had a lot more young offense that was already contributing on their club than the Yankees do…..they were in a better position to lose their best player and keep winning.

  4. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    Ready to contribute doesn’t mean full-time player OPSing .800+. 2014 is likely to be either player’s first taste of MLB. They got to that point by having Allen Craig in his third year. Freese in his 4th. Jon Jay in his 3rd. Matt Carpenter & Kozma are the guys who were really in their first year and Carpenter was a college player & Kozma barely played.

    The Yankees do not have Craig, Freese, or Jon Jay. It is asking a lot. And as I said, the Cardinals were the worst team in the playoffs and one of the average teams in baseball who only made the playoffs thanks to being in the NL. Really hard to use Pujols & Cards as an example.

  5. DONNYBROOK November 30th, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Why would a Dr. dealing with Jeet’s broken ankle, have anything to say about his being “outta shape”? This is just More of Cashman’s gibberish. Cashman has been playing catch-up assembling this team, and the Sudden loss of Martin has put him even further behind . I Hope he has some kinda Plan going into Monday, and is just Not gonna sit in his hotel suite deluding himself like Brando in “Apocalypse Now”.

  6. Warning Track Power November 30th, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    i’m glad there is a recent photo of Jeter to see, but i think the tone of that article/blog
    is very, very cruel.
    the man can not work out, so obviously he’s going to gain some weight.

  8. G. Love November 30th, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    A little late to the party, but seeing Martin actually go to the Pirates was surprising. I thought with all the love he gets from Girardi and Cashman, they were going to extend themselves financially to retain him.

    That said, take Martin’s HR’s out of the equation and I think we can find a catcher to be better offensively than him. I never really had a problem with his defense, but his offense was putrid for most of last year.

    Glad the rotation is locked in though and Mo, of course, is back.

    Hopefully, Cashman finds something decent at the winter meetings for the OF and behind the plate.

    I’d be happy with Ichiro, Hairston or Ross added to the OF mix and getting someone who has been more than a career backup behind the plate. The problem with elevating a backup catcher is they tire out fast. I remember Molina just fading fast here because we played him more than he was conditioned for.

    I know it would never happen in a million years, but I wonder if Cashman and Jack Z discuss Montero at the winter meetings since he doesn’t really fit in for the Mariners. Pat M seemed to be sure the M’s were going to deal him. The roof would blow off this place if that ever happened.

    Fantasy aside, I hope Cervelli gets a fair shot. He plays hard and if we’re going to have a light hitting catcher, we should at least get that much out of the player.

  9. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Tommy Hanson for a reliever Walden? ATL must be really worried about Hanson’s health. I am always wary of any pitcher ATL seems ok in letting go.

  10. AAA November 30th, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Hanson for Walden?

    I know Hanson’s shoulder is shaved steak at this point, but you’d think maybe the Halos put a little more than Walden into this.

    I would have liked to trade for Hanson….his shoulder is worrisome but he’s real good when healthy

    Cool 1 exception who was simply a prospect and at the time in 2004 right after he was traded he was diagnosed with a tear in his ligament in the elbow! So the Braves traded damaged goods that happened to work out ok for the Cardinals (it was a significant trade too, not like this, they got back JD Drew) so actually I’m right lol

    I’m always wary not always never doing something. The Braves just traded a ‘good pitcher’ for a reliever. The good pitcher has a blown up shoulder, altered his delivery to try and save that shoulder, which broke his stuff & his back.

    Also lol at feliz was great until the injury, exactly the point. And Feliz & harrison were traded in big packages.

    You cannot ignore that Wainwright was revealed to be damaged right after being traded. This is what the Braves do.

  29. UnKnown November 30th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Martin’s precursory tweets a couple of weeks ago seem telling the way things finally ended up. He seemed agitated and flustered.

    I am surprised that Martin didn’t take the Rangers up on their 13m/2 year offer. 4 million less to play with a contender. Easy for me to say though as it’s not me turning down 4 million.

    I am glad that at least Cashman told Marchand this – “We are still capable of a lot. People should still be leery of us and afraid of us as the stalking horse and that’s good. I want them to think that.”

    I’m excited to see what happens next week. It should be interesting one way or the other.

  30. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    @craigcalcaterra

    I would have hoped that they’d get more than Walden, but I can only think of one pitcher the Braves have ever unloaded and not won the deal.

  31. blake November 30th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    “You cannot ignore that Wainwright was revealed to be damaged right after being traded. This is what the Braves do.”

    Cards were lucky it took years to finally blow up

  32. The Return of Stoneburner November 30th, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    at the time in 2004 right after he was traded he was diagnosed with a tear in his ligament in the elbow!

    *****

    This is not accurate Jerk – come on

    It was not right after. Wainwright actually pitched in AAA that season and it was not until Junish of 2004 that – it was not right after – besides he made his major league debut in 2005 – and actually pitched in the AZFL in 2004 – seriously – - – -

    “The 2004 season found Adam at Triple-A Memphis, where he started well before being shelved in June by elbow problems. A slight ligament tear—which at first was thought to require surgery—healed on its own. Adam returned to make four starts in the Arizona Fall league for the Mesa Solar Sox. In 2005, Adam got in a full year at Memphis, going 10-10 in 29 starts for the Redbirds, with a league-high 182 innings pitched and 147 strikeouts, which ranked second. Once again, he finished strong, with three victories in his last three starts.”

    So cool – you are wrong :(

    ****

    It was not right after the trade!!!!! He pitched in 2004 for 12ish games in the minors and then was shut down – - – -

    Oh lol – being part of a big trade has nothing to do with it – they traded two other pitchers that have turned out well – and Feliz was well after the fact – count with me – he is traded in 2008 – then 2009-2011 he is great – well after the trade – it took until 2012 for an injury that shut him down for good – could have just as well been the Rangers that messed up – - – -

  35. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    I never said he wasn’t pitching or that he missed time, so actually I am right. What they found is that Wainright had a ligament tear. It did heal and he did pitch, though only for 64 innings, then it blew up later. And yes 2004 is right after he was traded. He was traded in the offseason before the 2004 season. The Braves traded a pitcher they correctly assessed as risky for a very good position player in JD Drew who went on to have his best year. Good for the Braves, they seem to know pitching.

  36. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    How is 2004 not right after the trade? He was traded in Dec 2003? Injured in 2004? Is there a 200blorp that fits secretly in between 2003 & 2004? Is it like a leap decade thing?

  37. The Return of Stoneburner November 30th, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    And here is the beauty of this Wainwright fiasco – he had arm problems in high school back in ’98 – so the Braves – the Braves! – took him well aware of the injuries – the whole baseball world knew he was a risk – but a risk worth taking – which paid off great for the Cards – it is not exactly as if the Braves were hiding the ball – - – -

    Nice try :(

    That is not right after trade – look at your own words – right after the trade is right after the trade – it is not the next season – - – -and he pitched!!! Right after the trade means the trade happens and the right after he gets injured – there is Extended ST, 12 games he pitches – you even said this early:

    right after he was traded he was diagnosed with a tear in his ligament in the elbow!

    There is no wiggle room right there – that’s the offseason.

    And your arguments need to be better than ending with “you are crazy bro” – I expect more from you – that is last line of defense of a cornered argument/statement – - – -

  41. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    You are falling into having to argue semantics and try to parse things instead of just looking at my statement as it is conveyed. Your last line of defense. Reminder that this all started because I simply said I am wary of any starter the Braves think they should trade.

    2004 is indeed right after the trade. The very first season on his new team and he misses 60% of the year.

    Wainwright’s elbow trouble in HS was simply a strain, but it did drop his draft stock, allowing the Braves to take him with nearly the last pick in the first round. Actual elbow trouble for him has since popped up twice, but only after being traded by the Braves.

  48. Duh Innings II November 30th, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    Cashman doesn’t think it’s “necessary” to add another reliever LOL.

    Oh yes it is when your closer just turned 43 and the only guy in your bullpen with significant closing experience David Aardsma last closed on a regular basis in 2010.

    The Yanks should do this:

    Sign Joakim Soria to a $5M base salary plus $2.5M incentives for 2013 (half of Mo’s 2013 salary) with a mutual $10M base plus $5M incentives option for 2014 (Mo’s 2013 contract.)

    Re-sign Rafael Soriano for three years at $10M base plus $2M incentives a year so he makes at least $30M and could make up to $36M. He gets security (three years) and three more legitimate cracks at a World Series ring.

    Rivera/Soriano/Robertson/Soria/Aardsma/Logan/Rapada – WOW!

    Who the #$%^ cares who the RF is with that bullpen?

    The Yanks could have a pair of closers making $10M base each, $9M less than the combined salary of 2012 Mo-Sori.

    Closer / Insurance Closer / Setup Man

    2013 – Rivera / Soriano, Robertson, or Soria / Soriano, Robertson, or Soria

    2014 – Soriano, Robertson, or Soria / Two from Soriano, Robertson, or Soria / Soriano, Robertson, or Soria

    2015 – Soriano / ??? / ???

    They were going for it in a weak NL east. It didn’t work out, but Feliz has not been anything close to what he was supposed to be. Harrison was the closest piece to the majors in the deal and he was in AA. The Rangers got exceptionally lucky on Andrus being awesome. Harrison struggled but has been pretty good the last 2 seasons.

    I should revise that to say .. the type of ligament tears we are talking about – elbow. The continued stress of pitching will weaken the ligament over time

  55. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    The Braves aren’t perfect, but the sentiment I am expressing is self evident in their moves & in the public perception of them. They are astute on the pitching side of the game, so I will continue to be wary if the Braves are willing to trade a specific starter out of a group, or if they let a starter go for a reliever.

    Why is this even an argument?

    Jerkface didn’t say he would never trade for an Atlanta pitcher or that they are perfect.

    Given their track record, it makes sense to ALWAYS exercise extra caution when the Braves are willing to deal you a pitcher.

    Between these unecessary attempts at playing Gotcha and posting just obviously inaccurate info Stoneburner really is the worst.

  60. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Yea they paid heavily, it was a sick deal for Daniels. The Rangers are also very astute at talent evaluation, probably more astute overall than the Braves are. That is the danger of trading a ball guys like Vizcaino. They are too far away to count on but could potentially turn a mere win into the most lopsided trade of the decade.

    If both were simply A ball busts, you’d have Saltalamacchia the huge bust & Harrison who took some time to get settled (looked like a huge bust) but is pretty good now.

    I like the fact that more and more respected media people are coming around to the preposterous notion of a blanket ban on all steroid users — proven or suspected.

    Every era has had its “taint” and from 1990-2004 it was steroids. BFD.

    It’s time for the Hall to take over its selection process and get it out of the hands of a ridiculously large (500+) group of crotchety old sports writers. The NFL has a committee between 40-and-50 and it seems to do its job pretty damn well.

  71. DONNYBROOK November 30th, 2012 at 1:59 pm

  77. DONNYBROOK November 30th, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    I’m sure the weight gain, and Now the picture, are killing Jeet. He has a lotta pride, and regards his image highly. All that picture Might do is get him to rush things when he is cleared, and possibly lead to another Pettitte like set-back.

    First significant non-tender of the day – Daniel Schlereth. Best known because of who his dad is, Schlereth is a LHRP who is not yet arbitration eligible, spent most of last season on the DL – from a Yankee standpoint you can never have enough LHP.

  83. Chip November 30th, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    RH RF option – the Nats want to re-sign Adam LaRoche to play 1b which would make Morse the odd man out – You know I already want the Yankees to pick up Suzuki from the Nats – expand the deal to get Morse too.

  84. spidanyc November 30th, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    Just out of curiosity, who is the better pitcher: Tommy Hanson or Phil Hughes?

  85. Patrick November 30th, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    Just out of curiosity, who is the better pitcher: Tommy Hanson or Phil Hughes?

    When healthy Hanson is probably better but it’s a moot point because Hanson’s shoulder is shredded (supposedly)

  86. blake November 30th, 2012 at 2:27 pm

    “Just out of curiosity, who is the better pitcher: Tommy Hanson or Phil Hughes?”

    Hanson before his shoulder messed up….much rather have Hughes right now.

    Yea do not sully Dinklage & Tyrion with such an inapt comparison, which is based purely on physical height.

  105. pkyankfan69 November 30th, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    Tyrion is cool but that doesn’t change the fact that both he and Pedroia are midgets.

    It’s a perfect match.

  106. DONNYBROOK November 30th, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    I “make” my family do nothing. That is the conduct of King’s and tyrants.

    you have yet to make a stance on whether that picture will cause Jeter to get hurt or not…..please stop waffling and choose.

  108. Jerkface November 30th, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    It’s a perfect match.

    There are other midgets in ASOIF that Pedroia can take, don’t waste Tyrion on a red sox. Pedroia can be Penny.

  109. DONNYBROOK November 30th, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    Funny picture here. The King is attempting to elbow his way into the picture.

  110. AAA November 30th, 2012 at 3:10 pm

    but Morse would be a pretty good get….

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

    He’s close your eyes bad in the outfield, but the Yankees can use some right handed pop. Morse more a DH and maybe OF against LHP’s to me.
