Cashman: “It wasn’t a deep market”

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jul 31, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

No real surprise here, but Brian Cashman said he had “a lot” of conversations with different teams. Some ideas gained traction, others were shot down immediately.

“It wasn’t a deep market at all, is one (reason for not making a deal),” Cashman said. “Two, what I was offering, obviously wasn’t good enough for the opposing teams. What the teams were suggesting to me, wasn’t good enough from my perspective.”

Cashman also said that Alex Rodriguez is still on schedule to play in a simulated game in Tampa tomorrow, but he wouldn’t give details of the rehab plan beyond that. He also said the Biogenesis situation had no impact on his trade deadline approach.

Curtis Granderson is expected to be activated on Friday.

    He’s such a crummy GM.

    I’d be interested in reading some insight on how the new playoff structure has affected the trade market.

    One win and some wanted us to buy. One loss and it’s we shoulda sold. I can’t ever bring myself to root for the Yankees to lose but now it’s not the worst thing in the world. An early playoff exit would only serve Hal but not the team.

    Well at least they didn’t make the future worse.

    say goodbye to the 2013 playoffs Yankee fans.. Another Cashman fail.. Orioles add Morris, Sox add Peavy and Yankees basically added nothing..

    Paul Konerko is just salary and worth the risk on my opinion. If it does not work out then it does not but still just money. I am expecting this sort of deal, not even Michael young type.

    “…what I was offering, obviously wasn’t good enough for the opposing teams…”

    I hope Phil and Joba don’t get wind of that. :neutral:

    Cashman is so predictable and we l called it. Grandy is coming back, a one liner about the market yadda yadda. Still no rh bat to platoon overlay. Still no real 3b. Still have Hughes and Joba.

    Good gms make a market they don’t sit back and whine that there isn’t one.

    What future does this team have?

    AAO – Sure, but what were we willing to lose/give up to build up that farm? Where is the Yankees “sucker” Like the Redsox had the Dodgers and the Marlins had the BlueJays?

    You can’t just simply “buy or sell” things because you have a desire to, you need a partner to do business with.

    Even with a partner, you can’t just move $20m/year contracts on a whim. A-Rod, Teixeira, CC, Jeter are all full no-trade.

    ———————————–

    I understand impact that the contracts of those guys play a part of the reason they couldn’t make a move is they don’t really have anything to give. The kids on the farm have had bad seasons and the few assets on the big league club have no value.

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

    Wasn’t today – but the only middle-of-the-lineup’ guy that was traded was A. Soriano; no ne else.

    So we did do something – just not today.

    tweet just shown on MLB Network:

    craigcalcaterra: Source: If A-rod doesn’t settle with MLB, he will be given a lifetime suspension.

  13. ac1 July 31st, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    I’m so sick of hearing how all our returning stars will save our season. Same story last 4 months.

    I have started to actually hope this secret plan for arod is tomorrow in Tampa and quietly fly him to San Diego to play 3b for us Friday.

    I really don’t care what bud is threatening. He will play while appealing. And I am no fan of Alex but I he will at least make it worth watching.

  14. ac1 July 31st, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    That lifetime ban b s will never come to fruition and Alex is clearly ready to call buds bluff. Everyone else is getting 50 games. Good luck, evidence and all, making a lifetime ban stick. It’s their way of trying to get him to agree to a deal…

    In the event that some here might have been asleep the past few days, the trade market was the slowest that I’ve ever seen in my 50 years of watching the game. Now one must think as to why this is rather than being a moronic peckerhead Yankee Fan let alone a so called Yankee fan. Everyone wants change yet how to achieve positive change requires some viable considerations. Baseball IQ’s have dramatically shifted here over the past few years or so……

    ‘Paul Konerko is just salary and worth the risk on my opinion’

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

    Why noy ? Another old broken down wreck to sit on the DL and collect a fat paycheck

  17. Irreverent Discourse July 31st, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    I would be at least a little suspicious that MLB is pushing so hard for the players to take plea deals. How much bad press for MLB are they afraid of coming out during the appeals?

    None of their statements regarding the a-rod situation make it seem like they have a rock solid case against him. Why would they care or push the plea deal so hard if they actually had him by the balls? I’m sure that this isn’t the case, but their PR (or lack thereof) around the situation is staggering.

    David Adams has been a big disappointment. He didn’t even have to be great. If he could hit 260-270 and hit around 15 homers a year he would of been the everyday 3rd basemen. I remember a lot of fans were upset when he got released. Its too early to call him a “bust” but he did blow a great opportunity.

  19. The Other Phil July 31st, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    Pat M: I would venture a guess that, while IQs have shifted, it is also that the loudest voices are also usually the dumbest.

    People shouting about no movement, but what move was there to realistically make? So many playing GM on PS3 with the cheat mode on: “We should have traded Chris Stewart for Giancarlo Stanton! UGH! Cashman sux!!!1!”

  20. Against All Odds July 31st, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    but he did blow a great opportunity.

    ——————

    Understandable but it’s his first go around. If fans can give a kid getting a cup of coffee in his first season they might as well not be in favor of the other kids on the way.

  21. Nick in SF July 31st, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Sherman calls the Cubs the trade winners — got out early and made deals — and the Mariners the losers — in an environment in which teams wanted bats, the M’s failed to move any of theirs.

    oops :arrow:

  22. Wave Your Hat July 31st, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Pat M-

    The Yankees can’t bring themselves to do what they need to do, and what they want to do can’t be done. Bad times.

  23. Jesus Bustero July 31st, 2013 at 5:07 pm

    Sure, more teams are in later so there are too many buyers but

    1) How do you explain lack of trading in the Winter for Cashman?

    2) Why didn’t Cashman think to capitalize on this new pool of buyers by dangling Kuroda, Cano and Gardner?

  24. comnsnse July 31st, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Cashman, honest evals and exhibiting an attitude that he will either be in charge or tell the committee to “take this job a shove it”!

    Straw asked about Cashman’s lack of talent in assessing personnel value.

    Start from the beginning with cap restraints, unexpected injuries and being “suggestor in chief”, all of which are not the norm.

    I believe he should not be criticized for this years bandaid roster but should be held accountable for the lack of real progress by the system gurus in judging our prospects.

    When we see a few firings at the minor league level directors, scouts etc. we will know he is in charge .

    Until then it is impossible to determine how much power he has, and therefore decision making is his doing.

    Do not forget this was George’s way of keeping his troops in line, everyone watching everyone else and afraid to make decisions.

    Making everyone by necessity come to George for the imprimatur on all decisions.

    Is it so far fetched that the sons would think this is the way to deal with employees and do business?

    Who will tell them differently!

  25. EndlessMike July 31st, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    How was it not a deep market when you have Jason Nix and Vernon Wells on your roster. Wells has been on 10 homeruns and 30+ rbis since May.
