It Got Over Early

with 48 comments

Late Saturday night former Director of Spending Brian CashMan was given the OK to break up Hal’s father’s Yankees. By Sunday morning the last of CashMan’s big reliever assets, Andrew Miller, was on his way to Cleveland for outfielder Clint Frazier, lefty Justus Sheffield and right-handers Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen

Al Yankzeera’s biggest nightmare, #TeamSell, has finally come home to  roost, forget the Dark Ages, we might be headed into  the Dark Stage era of Yankees baseball.. Or not!! As one disgruntled Bomber fan standing on line at Best Buy purchasing his 3rd TV of the season said

I’d rather watch Refsnyder learn to play 1st then that big stiff nostril “no run” texeira,
How does # 13 not retire out of embarrassment?
The mighty white McCant too?
Go back to Atlanta and quickly !!

So It’s not like Hal needed extra security to help control an overflow crowd of people anxiously waiting  to pay for those Fat Cat cush seats up front, “let’s be honest” Brillo Levine could have paid off ARod’s remaining $30M salary by just  selling ad’s attached to the empty ones we’ve seen all year

Possibly, with the White Flag Psycho “I don’t ever wave a white flag” Joe said isn’t being waved flying vigorously   over the Mall on Rivera Avenue, there will be enough empty seats / billboards to help pay for whatever part of Bubba McCann’s contract Atlanta can’t afford, ditto Captain Gardner and hopefully  his new digs..If CashMan  can get anything back  for Ivan Nova throw his hat in the ring for a  Nobel Prize in Economics..

I’m not sure what the fans were coming to  see before the big sell off, CSPAN had a better line-up.. Perhaps the only excitement came from the last 9 outs, Beltran  and D-Gregorius’ AB’s, or Tanaka if he had 5 days rest?

The last expiring contract on CashMan’s agenda is the Don B’s favorite Bronx Belter, Carlos Beltran.. Possible landing spots for Beltran

Buster Olney  
Among the teams talking about a Carlos Beltran deal: Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Indians.

7:35 PM – 31 Jul 2016

CashMan is doing just  fine bringing back quantity in his two  deals with Chicago  and Cleveland, hopefully a few of these 7 prospects and Adam Warren makes 8 pan out.. Miller  Chapman, and Beltran hitting like an MVP on a losing team  was a once in a lifetime gift for an organization needing a hard core re-boot

Per Sensie Joel Sherman, the Yanks are a 24 hour service at the moment

Besides Beltran, the Yankees continue to listen to inquiries on Brian McCann, Brett Gardner, Nathan Eovaldi and Michael Pineda, and hope to find a landing spot for Ivan Nova before Monday’s 4 p.m. deadline.

Hal hasn’t completely gone rouge, he’s still playing hardball on a Beltran prospect return.. So  far CashMan  has exploited the market getting back the Cubs and Indians  #1 prospects plus some depth insurance in case the hype on the big 2 (Torres and Frazier) doesn’t pan out

With Betances in the mix, and a less then stellar supporting cast, but serviceable Warren  and Clippard carrying his water, remaining status quo and trading no one allows the Al Yankzeera publicity team to  stay in business selling a fake fight to  the finish battle cry


Once Beltran goes, the only excitement left in the Bronx will be to  hand ARod the daily DH job, and watch  him try to reach 700 HR’s, keeping an eye on Severino, Green, Romine,  Refsynder, Betances, Warren, D-Gregorius, Tanaka and Castro…The rest of the team is irrelevant unless you want to monitor what  to  do  with Pineda and Eovaldi  this winter…

  1. Miller said all the right things when he left, but do you think he’s happy too be in a pennant race with a few of his old buds from Boston

  2. from Wally Matthews:

    The seeds for the great sell-off — and the Yankees can call it whatever they like, but if it quacks like a duck, please pass the sauce a l’orange — were planted in December 2007, when someone in Yankees ownership (read: Hank Steinbrenner) decided to override the recommendation of general manager Brian Cashman and reward Alex Rodriguez with a contract extension and a raise.

    This is not to be interpreted as blaming A-Rod for the Yankees’ current plight; neither he nor his then-agent, Scott Boras, marched up to Hank’s office with a gun and a mask. The Yankees offered him the deal — an unprecedented $275 million in salary and another potential $30 million in home-run bonuses — and he would have been crazy not to take it. (And, crazy to walk away from it before every last dollar is paid.)

    But the decision to make that deal, as well as the others that followed it — eight years, $180 million for Mark Teixeira; seven years, $161 million for CC Sabathia, with two more years and $50 million more tacked on in 2011; seven years, $155 million for Masahiro Tanaka; seven years, $153 million for Jacoby Ellsbury; five years, $85 million for Brian McCann; and four years, $52 million each for Brett Gardner and Chase Headley — ensured that this day would come, the day the Yankees would find themselves continuing to pay bills for goods and services that they had long stopped receiving.

  3. I saw YES post Frazier in left, Rutherford in CF, and Judge in RF….as the future, I guess they think Harper will be money whipped to stay in DC…

    Obviously they didn’t hear Francesa almost guarantee Harper stays in Washington, why because they already gave Starsburg $175M and Scherzer ova $200M and da owe-na has da money

    Right there you know Harper is a goner, it was Mushnick who mentioned Francesa just about guaranteed Milla was goin no ware ok

    I think Rizzo who is prospect porn-a-phobic might trade Harper before they just let him walk for nothing but a QO, look at the haul two relievers got, one a rental, imagine that grab

    although the team that gets Harper will have to sign him so easier said then done, and right now he keeps playing like he did in July he couldn’t get a Captain Gardner contract

    • hahahaha, that was a classic Don B post, Classic


      August 1, 2016 at 9:12 am

  5. You guys are both classics.
    After this year the tally will be one second wild card game ( and that was an over and done quickly shutout to Houston) in the last four years.
    Excuses aside, they still rank among the highest payroll teams in the game. Excuse me if I don’t jump on the Cashman/Girardi bandwagon. Last week Michael Kay said that Girardi was one of the best managers in the game and was actually underrated. I think I’ll believe that whopper after it is verified that Glaucoma John Sterling has superior x-ray vision to Clark Kent.

      Yankees bummed they missed out on Melancon so they could keep selling those No Runs DMC shirts


      August 1, 2016 at 11:12 am

  6. Cashman already exposed himself as nothing much more then a director of spending with a few decent acquisitions that panned out
    After his boss woke up and realized he had no farm system in 2013

    He’s getting a 2nd chance with this reboot if these kids don’t pan out or can’t be used to get something that does
    He gone
    Girardi should be gone based on he may have lost the room his team folded on him in Tampa
    I’ve played wedding and bar mitzvah gigs with more energy then those guys generated at the Trop


    August 1, 2016 at 11:19 am

  7. Per the rumor moguls Boston in the lead for a Sale trade
    I’m not buying it its click bait for Twitter followers

    Unless Chicago is getting back Moncada Benintendi and Devers plus
    Which would clean out their system anything less would need an investigation


    August 1, 2016 at 11:33 am

  8. this trade deadline is hilarious, seems every team is wiping out their farm system to make a run, the Yanks are in reverse mode… By the end of the day we should have the #1 farm system and a last place team lol…..

    the package for Sale will hurt Boston, they can do all the math they want about Sale giving them 4 yr’s of playoff runs, but once they chop up their depth and guys start to get hurt, they might be in trouble, especially if getting Sale doesn’t win them a ring

    Dombrowski will be long gone by the time all these moves backfire on him… Boston taking a page out of old George days, the days he killed the Yanks not helped them

    Francesa not that enamored with the Bruce deal hahahaha Mets just stole Jay Bruce and have enough to get Lucroy… Mets are rocking


    August 1, 2016 at 1:09 pm

  9. This is like Christmas Eve for me with all these trades… Yanks could be in it too if they didn’t make so many fucked up moves from 2013 until the other day


    August 1, 2016 at 1:10 pm

  10. Remember Francesa was the dolt who said he wouldn’t trade 2 months of Chapman for Altuve 3 weeks ago… Until one of his butt boys informed him Altuve is having an MVP type season….. I think the Met Mutts goofed on him for 2 weeks


    August 1, 2016 at 1:16 pm

  11. that’s right ass hole, deadline Monday, lets talk PGA golf at 2 PM, right in the heat of all this trade stuff… you can’t make this shit up


    August 1, 2016 at 1:17 pm

  12. Beltran traded to the Rangers for Dillon Tate-hope McCann is next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    BACK UP THE TRUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    August 1, 2016 at 3:02 pm

    • Hey Big D yeah just heard, sounds like a Cash special, get a guy who was highly rated, 1st round #4, but hasn’t panned out, he’s got a 5 + ERA at A Ball

      Too bad Beltran is more valuable to a team looking for a DH then what we could get back for him, but at least A-Rod gets out of witness protection

      this kid is getting smoked at Single A wow… Good chance he’s a TJ waiting


      August 1, 2016 at 3:17 pm

  13. Joel Sherman ‏@Joelsherman1 52s52 seconds ago Jersey City, NJ

    As @JackCurryYES reported #Yankees besides Tate are getting Erik Swanson and Nick Green from #Rangers for Beltran

  14. In June Tate was the Rangers #3 prospect so he’s been highly touted at one point


    August 1, 2016 at 3:37 pm

  15. Tate presently their #5

    Swanson and Green no ranking below 30, throw in’s

    Rangers now get a Beltre Beltran combo, Yanks get a hope and two prayers.. Better then nothing chance Tate might be decent and the farm system keeps getting stocked

    now flip McCann and Gardner


    August 1, 2016 at 3:40 pm

  16. Yanks picking up all of Beltran’s money – 5 million. So essentially they bought a couple of mid level prospects.


    August 1, 2016 at 3:46 pm

  17. Rangers gonna steal Lucroy I bet Gallo goes… Mets needed to include Herrera in the Bruce deal, he was supposed to be their 2nd baseman in 2017 #metsaredesperate


    August 1, 2016 at 3:52 pm

  18. NovaCane to the Pirates


    August 1, 2016 at 4:01 pm

    The #Cubs get Joe Smith and #Pirates get Ivan Nova in late moves per @Buster_ESPN and @JonHeyman


    August 1, 2016 at 4:04 pm

  20. Intel on Tate


    John Manuel

    Has had hamstring issues this year, velocity has been down. Only a starter the last 2 years


    August 1, 2016 at 4:16 pm

  21. Tate is more suited a future reliever per Sweeney, still no intel on Nova, poor bastard nobody even cares but us


    August 1, 2016 at 4:20 pm

  22. Ok, now we are making progress.
    Couldnt Cashnutz get one bat in the Carlos Danger unload tho ??
    If Headley and Whitey McCant could go too then we might have room for real growth.
    Nova for ??? 😊😊😊 player to be named WAY later lol


    August 1, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    • Beltran trade opens a spot for Judge
      My guess A-Rod and Hicks are on notice
      Although Hicks my have more rope
      Ref needs to put some hits together too
      Or Judge comes up in September and Arod gets a month to get it going

      There is also no room for Sanchez lotta pressure on Alex they need that spot in the line up

      Rangers didn’t want to trade a slugger I have to check who they sent to Milwaukee for Lucroy
      But Gallo and Profar are still there
      Beltran can thank Prince Fielder his DL got Beltran to Texas and hopefully a good pitcher in Tate


      August 1, 2016 at 7:24 pm

  23. good chance Nova for a PTBNL.. Yanks just got rid of him, making room for Severino and or Green to the rotation


    August 1, 2016 at 4:27 pm

  24. Addition by subtraction at it’s finest.
    Hal or his Sister musta been pissed after TB cooked us Morte !


    August 1, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    • All these trades didn’t make Captain Gardner any smarter


      August 1, 2016 at 7:14 pm

  25. Brainiac defensive shift with an immobile pitcher on the mound

    I hope Espada’s computer gets a virus

    Mets getting the momentum


    August 1, 2016 at 9:03 pm

  26. “& just like that, the Mets take the lead”
    No shit!
    I was screaming to get C. C.out with the lead, but noooooo,


    August 1, 2016 at 9:07 pm

  27. Hey comes the gidrools
    Poor CC

    Mikey 2 Chins and his Jr. GM posse were giggling like a green room full of taylor swift fans when the yanks went up 3-1
    They were saying how free and how much fun they were having
    I wonder how they feel about Cyborg Joe’s gang now


    August 1, 2016 at 9:22 pm

    • Mets probably can’t believe they get a soft 4 games it’ll help them get whole

      Gotta love Flash
      Reynolds 2 hrs in 297 abs and he tries to tell us what a tough ab he is based on no Intel

      There’s tons of Intel on every player who writes this gasbag’s material


      August 1, 2016 at 9:37 pm

  28. I’m sure this made the team feel better
    Maybe they need a new manager to guide the new young players

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi: “There is age on this team. I think there are needs on this team. Brian Cashman and his staff are trying to put this team in a good position to have a long run of not just playing well, but winning championships. I think this is what this organization is about. It is not about being a second wild card team and winning one game or losing one. We want championships. That is what we have always been a


    August 1, 2016 at 9:54 pm

    • Top 5 SS what an ab


      August 1, 2016 at 9:59 pm

    • Ok it’s up to the Big 1

      Good job boys a base hit with the bases loaded would have been ok to but we’ll take what we can get


      August 1, 2016 at 10:50 pm

  29. Automatic Hicks almost won it
    Nice catch by Senator Granderson


    August 1, 2016 at 10:17 pm

    • Romine empire

      Captain Gardner can save the day


      August 1, 2016 at 10:20 pm

    • Wow a 3 ft grounder from the Captain
      No wonder he’s still in the Bronx


      August 1, 2016 at 10:23 pm

    • Warren was just missing the outside paint almost getting squeezed
      Nice job

      Neither team has a player that scares you
      Last met in the pen make him work


      August 1, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    • Good job doughboy now steal off this catcher


      August 1, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    • Maybe not it’ll blow humpty’s ab


      August 1, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    • Bad start for the big 1

      He blew getting the lead run too ouch


      August 1, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    • Classic the Big 1 vs the Senator

      That’s the Senator we know and love
      Good job boys the new era gets off to a good start


      August 1, 2016 at 10:59 pm

  30. Cashman was busy on tv before and during the game,had some interesting news. Sanchez could be here Wednesday,catching and dhing. Not good news for Arod. He also said that we could see Judge(previously all year he said we would not be seeing him) and Tyler Austin. They made the moves so they could clear room for the youngsters to get some playing time. Times are changing,the Yanks are getting younger and plan on playing their youngsters for a change. Yanks made an incredible comeback to win the game,showed a lot of guts especially after all the deals. PsychoJoe left CC in too long,its usually 5 and fly and then compounded it by bringing in gidrools!! CC gave up a homer to Reynolds who had 2 homers in the minors in 289 at bats!! WTF!! Pathetic. Didi had a great at bat and drove in the tying runs. My pal Hicks was robbed by Granderson of an extra base hit-it probably was a homer at the stadium. The Yanks still have a potent bullpen with Severino,Clippard,Warren and Betances as the closer. Betances may channel David Robertson as a heart attack along with each save. The Mets have the worst batting average with risp(Yanks are next to last!!!) and Granderson is below .200 with risp. Arod almost had an at bat,but got called back for Gamel to bunt. I think there are going to be more changes coming to the roster once they are done at Citi and are back playing in the AL.


    August 2, 2016 at 12:39 am

  31. My hope is that one of the former Yankees blast Clippy Joe for his shitty over-managing.
    I know they dont do that but a guy can hope, cant he ??
    Go all Jim Bouton on him lolol
