That's why he gave up #3rd best prospect for a free swinging FA 3rd baseman, 2 relievers...cause it's about next few seasons right?
I'm being facetious of course.
Hey if Cashman is given all the kudos, he deserves a share of the blame when he team struggles. Blame cuts both ways.
Listen, the 2017 New York Yankees have the most expensive pen in the history of baseball. The KC Royals formula works but I've said this over and over, the Royals had the line up built for close games. This Yankee team is below .500 in close games. They are at least 2-3 seasons from becoming a contender despite ESPN and NY Media talking it up.
Speaking of the Royals, the Yanks are NOT a lock for the Wild Card. They are even money to lose the wild card, which the media will go with fire Girardi.
Frazier was a throw in Yankees had to accept him in the trade in order to get rid of Clippard,he is an expiring contract anyways, it is still about the next few seasons realistically, Cashman was trying to give his team a better chance this year while not mortgaging the future. Do people not understand you can't keep all your players you will lose some due to the rule 5 draft, Fowler, Mateo were gonna be blocked for the forceable future.
