Grand Papi  To Retire


This works well  for Boston, now  the Cafeteria Lady Hanley Ramirez only has to fake 1st base for 1 season

Heyman Confirms Yanks won’t Be In on Price

The Met Mutts, Red and Butt Head had Jon Heyman on their show yesterday, after 18 minutes of what  the Mets were gonna do  they  finally got around to  the Yanks and per Heyman’s sources the Yanks aren’t in on Price

The way  we looked at it, at  a 50% Tax penalty no big time free agents will  come to  NY… Figure the Yanks will be around $220M in payroll, if you add David Price’s $30M AAV that’s a $250M payroll

That’s over a $30M tax penalty, ain’t happening

What  does scare you is the possibility of Miller and Gardner going in a trade for a young cost controlled pitcher

They  can have Gardner but it would be nice to keep Miller, then  again it’s more important for Hal  to  cut payroll, get younger, and still  try to fake a playoff run with Betances as the closer…

Not sure who  else they’d put in the pen, but Cashman is a money ball  guy and Money Ball guys hate paying top  dollar for 60 innings of work.. In their mind, any ass hole can be a reliever

    • hey Big D, he wants to make the Jeter tour, should be fun after the Boston fans made fun of Jeter lol…… Actually too bad he’s bailing because with Ramirez owed $66M and no place to play, Dombrowski has to stick him at 1st base which should be in our favor…. Ramirez would make a good DH, although $22M per isn’t ideal

  2. I don’t trust Betances all season, keep Miller you assholes,
    I want to spit in poopi’s gloves then smack that Fuggin juicer with them.

  3. So, in Cashman’s mind any asshole can be a reliever? How’d that work out for him this year, when he brought up a cattle call of relievers who all spit the bit? Would love to get rid of the Babe, but I’d like to keep Miller. Big Papi retiring. In announcing his retirement, Papi did it a year in advance. So, he could have the same choreography of the last dance ala Jeter. But , this is exactly the antithesis of what he said back in ’14. During Jeter’s farewell tour, Papi said when he retires, he’s just gonna say at the end of that season that he’s done & have a nice life. He would NEVER do what the Captain is doing. Now, 2 years later he apparently is changing his tune. Besides being a juicer who slipped thru the noose, he’s also a hypocrite!

    • yes mB that’s what makes this so good.. My only disdain is it takes Dombrowski off the hook trading or eating Ramirez’s money in a trade, watching him stumble around at 1st base will be just as much fun

      Miller and Babe will command a solid return, maybe a Carrasco type pitcher… We ain’t winning nothing anyway might as well start the rebuild with the currency we have to acquire what we need starting pitching

      those dogs we have now won’t hunt… that said Miller is owed $27M Babe $38M, so not sure a mid level team like the Indians wants to take on that salary

      I’d say Cashman won’t get the return on Miller so he stays, maybe at the deadline…

    • How about Miller & the Babe & someone else for Michael Brantley?? I LOVE Brantley!!! Or, re-work it with Betances???


      November 18, 2015 at 11:45 am

  4. Betances would be a better trade, he’ll bring back more


    November 18, 2015 at 11:29 am

    • Brantley us out 7 months shoulder but he’ll yeah

      Never happen unfortunately

      Severino Judge and Betances would be the asking price

    • Kay sounds confused

      Maybe Cashman sends Gardner and Miller to Detroit who sends the prospects they got for Price to Cincinnati,
      Yanks get Chapman and Frazier from the Reds

      Miller and Gardner on the hook?


      November 18, 2015 at 5:03 pm

    • So where do I sign up for that???


      November 18, 2015 at 5:15 pm

  5. O’Day looking for Miller money, that ends any hope of him coming to NY… Boston was interested but looking at their roster they really need a LHP out of the pen they have Kimbrel Uehara and Tazawa not sure why they’re still squawking about O’Day or Soria….
