Murphy’s Flaw

Cashman: We already have  two 2nd baseman  that  can hit but can’t field, so Murphy is an  emphatic No

Well if Murph’s agent wanted to  use the Yanks as leverage in a deal he’s outta luck.. We knew that but it’s refreshing to hear Cashman just  flat out say it

As a contrast Dave Dombrowski came out of his first  day’s meeting stating

Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski. He says “it’s actually been a busier first day than normal.” and actually indicated that he thought the team had already been very close to striking a trade before it fell apart. Dombrowski was among the baseball operations leaders who spoke with the media today, and we’ll be covering the comments of him and others over the course of the evening.
The Red Sox are chasing at least one or two good arms in the pen, said Dombrowski. He’d like one of those pitchers to be capable of backing up Koji Uehara as the team’s closer. Indeed, Dombrowski declined to rule out the possibility of adding a pitcher who has served recently in a 9th-inning role.
Dombrowski said that the Red Sox‘ highly-regarded group of prospects has drawn quite a bit of interest, “Yes, I will say that unequivocally,” he explained. The veteran executive also indicated that he’s feel comfortable with the organization’s array of young talent even if some were utilized in trade.

Boston is gonna make some noise this off season, 3 out of the last  4 yr’s they’ve landed in the cellar..

Culture Shock? Dombrowski doesn’t have 10  drunks sitting at a Little Caesars Pizza Bar in Detroit tracking his every baseball move anymore He has 4 states of rabid New England fans ready to jump on his every move… They’re fucking nuts up in Boston, he better not trade away one of their darling Prospect Porn Kids that  the Boston media has overhyped…

The Fat Bastard 

Amber Alert

Unknown

Yesterday Imus in the Morning brought up  an interesting point, in fact one we’ve probably all wondered

“If the Fat Bastard knew he was an alcoholic 3 yr’s ago, why didn’t he get help  then instead of cashing those $23M a yr checks and sucking”?

Cashman must be channeling Jim Carey in Liar Liar

“We’ll see,” Cashman said when asked at baseball’s GM meetings in Boca Raton, Florida, if Sabathia would be a part of the Yankees’ rotation next season.

“We’ve got a lot of guys who are going to be vying for those five spots,” Cashman said. “I’m not guaranteeing anybody anything.”

That’s all  well  and good now, but Cashman might not be talking so  tough  if Fat Bastard fakes sobering up just long enough to  collect his $50M.. Do  we really think Hal  will  eat the dough?

He’s already  cornered the I suck Market, so  him sucking for 2 more yr’s is almost expected by most fans… The media will  continue to  protect him based on he’s a stand up  guy when they need a quote

WTF did he do in Baltimore that  week end  to  bail on the  team the night before a WC Game that  couldn’t wait? Especially if he claims he has been hammered for 3 yr.’s…?

Reyes Pulls a Papelbon

Apparently Jose Reyes didn’t like his wife’s Halloween costume or maybe they  went to  a party dressed as Papelbon and Harper

This is no joke, I have little respect for Ray Rice I don’t care how many do  gooder things he’s done previous and post slugging his then  girl friend, and now Reyes comes out of the closet as a real  tough guy beating on his wife

It’s Miller Time

Cashman trading Andrew Miller? I’m all in, bring back a haul, Cash…

Sell high before his arm  falls off… 3 for $27M isn’t a bad price for a closer..

Tell  you what, If Boston gave the Yanks Andrew Benintendi and Brock Holt, I’d drive Miller to Boston.. A Swiss Army knife, and the 7th pick in the 2015 draft  who is fast tracking through their system… Kid has pop  and bats LH

    Miller can be had if you overpay in prospects,

    Warren will be a starting pitcher,

    Jose Reyes is a punk bitch,

  3. good memory donny, I had no idea what trade got Willie to NY.. So I looked it up…. 1975, yr I met my wife, and months before I cured my drug addiction, no wonder I have no recollection

    In December 1975 the Pirates sent Dock Ellis, Ken Brett and Willie Randolph to the Yankees for pitcher Doc Medich. Doc went 8-11 in his only season in Pittsburgh before he was traded to the A’s while Randolph alone made this a huge win for the Yankees.

    that’s a heck of a trade… Was that before or after Doc pitched a no hitter on LSD?

  4. somebody really needs to break Axisa’s rose colored glasses…Pitching Depth????????

    I have depth in apples, despite 95% of the apples being rotten there is still a lot of those suckers in the bushel

    My meth lab neighbor has depth in cars and toilet bowls, none of them work, and they’re scattered all over then yard, but he’s got a shit load of them…

    I looked at the Yankees’ trade chips last week. An extra starter like Michael Pineda or Ivan Nova seems like a candidate to be traded, though who knows. The Yankees have pitching depth but they could use more quality pitching, if that makes sense. Also, second base and bench help figures to be on the agenda. We’ll see.

    • Poor Mikey was shocked about Reyes at least 7 times he said it

      And Mikey, Boston wouldn’t even trade Betts straight up for Harvey

      Nor would they trade Bogaerts straight up for Harvey
      No less think your getting both of them
      Have Gammons explain it to you
