The Yankees are toast, feels like one of those annual NY Giants 2nd half collapses.

Because this is what Cashman wants. He wants Gallo hitting 2nd, he wants someone to coddle Gary Sanchez. Remember he didn't want to Trade Gleyber because he has to walk around in the city. Now Gleyber is a bum.

It's not Boone's fault that Chapman is a fraud without the sticky stuff.

2 third place teams, entertaining.

Oh wait the Yankees are in 4th place right now.

Needs - Closer, Setup Man, 1B, 4th OF, Starting OF, Shortstop, Catcher ... Jeez.

Bet they resign Gardy again and we'll have 400 AB of Hicks next year to look forward too.

It's interesting that I said before the season that the Yankees should strongly consider trading Torres (and for a healthy starter no less) and most folks called me insane. It was clear to me that Torres was not a SS no matter how much we wanted to round peg him into a square hole. He doesn't have the body or the range for it and usually when you try to force a player to play a position he's not comfortable with (especially if that position is arguably the hardest position to play in baseball) that it's going to negatively impact everything else. And it apparently has. And his value is now nose diving.

So what do we learn from this guys?

PS: I was also pushing to trade Gary Sanchez well before his value also basically tanked out. Had suggested that they would have been better off keeping Romine and pairing him with a more robust backup C and trading Sanchez while he still had value. But a big part of the problem is that Cashman refuses to trade anyone that has any real value even if their future/projection is dubious or the fit is just off. He does not reset, he does not draft high upside so it forces him into a model (spend to win) that the Yankees cannot and more so are not willing to do.

It’s odd that every infielder minus Voit and Rizzo has played round robin all over the infield except Gleyber. It only took them till September to realize he’s not a SS. :banghead:

this season is done. Team has no heart or pride - just like their owner Hal The Accountant.

Full firesale needs to happen.

Perhaps hiring the guy who somehow tore his ACL playing basketball the year after getting to the World Series clearly wasn't the right choice.

Nothing will change until The Hal Bean Counter fires Cashman. But then we know Cashman must have some compromising photos on Hal to have stayed this long. A new GM and Boone will of course be history is the way forward.

Honestly, I feel good with Cashman, unless he's also being cheap as eff without ownership directives. Nothing changes unless Hal changes.
