    @NYDNHarper

    Cashman injured on 2nd landing. They’ve brought ice to put on his foot or ankle. Apparently Caught it in ground on landing.

    The second jump didn’t go great, though. Cashman twisted his right ankle and said he heard a pop. Going for X-rays.

    The goal is April 1?

    Great now the GM goes down with an injury this is going to be a tough yr lol

  5. Rich in NJ March 4th, 2013 at 11:58 am

    If Cashman goes on the DL, can we get a new GM for that period of time?

    repost

    yankeefeminista March 4th, 2013 at 11:52 am
    champ, I agree with all the above. However, there was thought Austin would start in A+ regardless. My Tampa source was saying so quite a few months ago, and then Chad and others confirmed the Yanks were considering the same. Not sure what the reason was. I know Austin was coming off the ankle injury, and didn’t get many reps in the AA playoffs and then was shut down, but he’s seemed fine in ST, and is his usual hitting self, so… I am not sure what the thought process will be. I know they were working on his D in Instructs, but he could just as well do the same in Trenton. Maybe plans have changed. We shall see.

    Cash hurt? Ugh.

  8. Cashmoney March 4th, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    Rich, I am planning cave diving for Cmoney on his next venture.

    note to myself, better log in as Chad’s boys before u know who gets the first word in!

    Holy stalagmite, Cash!

  12. blake March 4th, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    @NYDNHarper: People who attended to cashman say they’re pretty sure his ankle is broken. They say bone was sticking out. Took him to hospital.

    Yikes

  13. Rich in NJ March 4th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    Well, whatever my feelings about Cashman’s fitness to remain GM, I am sorry he got hurt and hope he has a speedy recovery.

  14. RadioKev March 4th, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    In all honesty, Cashman breaking his ankle will probably bring more publicity and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.

  15. Shame Spencer March 4th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    I like Chad’s line up. I’m surprised he went with Almonte over Mesa, but I hope he’s right and they end up carrying both those guys.

  16. RadioKev March 4th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    Vegetable MRI’s. Probably more interesting than Pineda’s.

    Steve
    I heard the other day on a game broadcast that the Yankees have to stay under 189 for two years in a row for it to count. That was the first time I’ve heard that, it it true?

    ——————

    Chad could have elaborated.

    It helps them set the LT back to 17.5% if they go under for one year, but the only way to get the tax to 0 is to stay under for more than one year. (LoHud: is this all correct?)

  18. pat March 4th, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    Ouch! A Joba trampoline injury for Cash.

  19. Warning Track Power March 4th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Chad-Wonderful updated on a “day off”. I really enjoyed reading everything you had to say.
    Gardner is playing so well right now. Very nice to see him excel.
    Ramirez seems to me like a legit pitcher who will someday pitch in The Bronx. After seeing him yesterday escape a jam while Girardi was being interviewed in Yes, the kid showed so much guts and appeared in control at all times.

  20. Rich in NJ March 4th, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    “Ouch! A Joba trampoline injury for Cash.”

    Ouch indeed.

  21. comet March 4th, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    Good afternoon Shame, YF, and Trisha.

    I`ll be very honest. I think both the Blue Jays and Rays will likely finish better than our Yankees this year. I like our pitching but not our hitting. We`ve lost Swish and Martin and have not replaced their bats or power.

    Because I`m a Yankee fan I`ll hope that I`m terribly wrong. That`s why they play the games!

    I think the Angels made a huge mistake in treating Trout the way they did. How much would it hurt to have given him a million dollar contract after what he did last year. Instead he received no recognition. Were I him I`d be waiting to be a free agent.

    Yankees say they will not try to void Brian Cashman’s contract after skydiving injury

    get better Cashmoney

  24. pat March 4th, 2013 at 1:05 pm

    Cashman adds “No protruding bone, as rumored” in his right ankle. But it’s probably broken. #Yankees

  25. Shame Spencer March 4th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    “No question. I think Joba should absolutely believe he can still start. And he might be right. But as I’ve said before, the Yankees did give him all of 2009 to prove that and he wasn’t great.”

    Lol, neither was Hughes in his first year as a starter (and I think saying they ‘gave him all of 2009 to start’ is…… not accurate at all).

  26. Shame Spencer March 4th, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    Good afternoon, comet! I think we’ll still be okay but I’m relying on injuries for both the Rays and Jays and….. very few for us lol.

    —————————————————————————————————————
    There are so many factors to this situation.
    Hughes was once behind Joba in the pecking order.
    Now the roles have been reversed and rightfully so.

    Joba required TJ surgery.
    Joba lost time when he broke his ankle.

    Sure there are questions about both pitchers, but Hughes has a solid grasp on a starting rotation spot while Joba has a lot to prove as a middle/late reliever.

    WTP – I was strictly commenting on Chad’s comments. He wasn’t actually given a full season to perform in one role.

  31. Warning Track Power March 4th, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    Shame
    Sorry. I have no idea what Chad said. I was not participating in the chat today.

    My apologies

    Hopefully this is good news. Jose help get it done!!

    WTP – He said “the Yankees did give him all of 2009 to prove that and he wasn’t great.”

    I disagree that he was given the full season. I do agree he wasn’t great, but Chad’s Girls disagree with how Chad’s statement is framed.

    Chad’s Girls also disagree that George would have cut payroll immediately after getting new CBA rules.

    Variety is the spice of life, however.. so Chad’s Girls continue to be Chad’s Girls despite not seeing eye to eye in these cases.

    Then he needs to channel their inner Jared Weaver and leave some money on the table. It takes two parties to get a deal done.

    He instead passed up the chance to receive one of the most lucrative pitching contracts in baseball history and signed a five-year, $85 million deal with the Angels last August that still draws ridicule from baseball agents and harsh scrutiny by his peers.

    “I know people still talk about it, and how big some people still think it is,” Weaver tells USA TODAY Sports. “But honestly, I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s tough for me saying the contract is a discount. Come on, it’s $85 million. It’s more money than I ever thought I would make in my life. I’m happy with my decision, and I can just concentrate on playing baseball, which is more important to me.

    “I’m happy. My family is happy. The fans and my teammates are happy,” he says. “If we play like we’re capable of in the second half and win this whole thing, that’s all the happiness I need.”

  36. Captain Clutch March 4th, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Weaver basically said to Boras this is what I want get it done now. Unless Cano does that there is a zero percent chance that Boras and the Yanks will agree to a contract this year. Everyone knows how Boras does things if the client doesn’t make it known what they want. 99% of the time it’s the highest bidder.

  37. Rich in NJ March 4th, 2013 at 1:42 pm

    Exactly.

    If Cashman goes on the DL, can we get a new GM for that period of time?
    ——————

    I hear Damon Oppenheimer is getting called up from the minors.

  39. Chip March 4th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Weaver and Pudge are the only two Boras clients I can think of who didn’t go seeking their big FA pay days. In both cases it was the player who decided to do a deal rather than going to the open market and in Pudge’s case the decision only came after the Rangers had nearly traded him to the Yankees (for Jorge Posada) because they didn’t think they would be able to re-sign him.

    I don’t think Cano will go this route – he wanted to negotiate a long term deal with the Yankees two years ago and they told him, quite publicly, to shove it. Now he has the hammer and I think he’s fully prepared to use it.

    The problem is all they gave him was 2009.

  42. Against All Odds March 4th, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    @Chip what about Cargo? He signed an extension but was he an impending free agent?

  43. champ809 March 4th, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    Yankeefem-

    I think the feeling was that the AA outfield would be packed with Zoilo in RF/Slade in CF and Flores in LF and that may still be how the rosters open the season.

    However I think the Yanks should be a little more aggressive with these guys based on what they’ve shown so far.

    Again assuming Mesa makes the team then I would start Zoilo in RF in Scranton with Musty in LF.

    In Trenton I’d go with Flores in LF/Slade in CF and Tyler Austin in RF to begin the season

    In Tampa I’d put Mason in CF with maybe Gamel in LF and Kelvin De Leon and 1 of my 2013 sleeper prospects Eladio Moronta in RF.

    If Slade comes firing out of the gate then I promote him to Scranton and promote Mason to Trenton with Gary Sanchez. That would entail JR Murphy also starting off hot which I believe he will.

    The Yanks minor league system I think will by season’s end again be a top 5 system as they may have Zoilo,Slade,Tyler Austin ,Corbin Joseph, JR Murphy and Austin Romine all at AAA

    With Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams, Anderson Feliz, Angelo Gumbs, Jose Ramirez, Nick Turley, Bryan Mitchell and maybe Jose Campos in AA.

    That Charleston team again will be stacked with the likes of Greg Byrd, Jake Cave, Matt Duran, Pete O’Brien, Miguel Andujar, Ravel Santana, Claudio Custodio, Rafael DePaula,Ty Hensley.
