Also Cashman has done a not a good job, an excellent job loading the farm. Some of these teams just want to slam the Yankees, aka 1 ready young front line player and multiple picks. More than what's asked for from others.

looking back on your post, it seems even better than when you wrote it. Trading away too much talent in a panic ruins teams. It's got to be hard for Cashman to resists overpaying when he has so much talent, but I agree than he should get value in return for what he gives. This way we'll all be excited by how the team is playing long into the future.

We need to throw their pitching coach or somebody in that staff 5M a season, this is horse s*** !!!

And WTF is with all these injuries Geezus !!! Boone is definitely the Coach of the Year with all these injuries we've had to deal with. Can somebody give me an update when is Stanton, Voit , Betances, Bird, Gary , EE and Ellsburry coming back? I mean come on we really need Ells out there. Let's just sweep Boston so we can get rid of them from the playoffs for good .

Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia, on the injured list for the third time this season, says the pain in his surgically repaired right knee has been constant for five years.

"It's always the same. If I had to scale it on a scale of one to 10, it's always an eight and when it's bad it's 10," he said Saturday.

Not even mad at CC, he's out to get the bag and hopefully another ring but Cashman really thought bringing back CC was gonna be a solid option all year in the rotation?

If he was serious about building a potential WS rotation that could compete with the Astros/Dodgers.

CC at best is a pen arm at this point of his career. Can only go 2-3 innings before things go sideways.

These injuries are going to kill us in the end because finishing with the best record in the AL is everything.

I feel like if we have home field versus the Astros we'll have a fighting chance. Without it we're toast.

Eerily similar to the 2005-2006 teams that were filled with broken down pitchers and meddling arms that the Yankees brought to eat up innings.

Both teams eliminated in the first round.

Cashman/Yankees have never been serious about building a legit rotation. Cashman has a tremendous eye for scouting bats that can be developed, but never with pitchers. It's fascinating.

We totally didn't need Keuchel because he's not an ace despite nearly the entire team catching the injury bug!

Guess this means Frazier isn't an option. Gardner, Maybin, and Tauchman can hold down left and center and even give Judge a rest day until Hicks is ready.

Frazier must be counting the days until he's a FA, because the Yanks are neither going to trade him OR play him, at this rate.

It's a long countdown since the Yanks have 2 more years of team control.

I don't get that whole ordeal as to why we weren't serious bidders on him.

The whole story, from Cashman's perspective, is screwy.

So, Keuchel/Boras never contacted the Yankees back for a final offer? How does that happen? Was Keuchel never coming? Were the Yankees not serious from get go?

From all we heard we were like a million and some change short on our offer compared to the Braves.

I don't get how Boras wouldn't call back to get more money from the Yankees.

There must be more to this story as to why the Yankees are treating Frazier this way.

I know the way Frazier handled the media when he made those errors in the field was a BAD look on his part. I know the Yankees are big on the way the players handle the media, it was a Mets-zy way Frazier handled himself to the media.

He has an attitude about himself like he's a superstar when he barely has a year of MLB experience under his belt.

It definitely rubbed Cashman/Steinbrenners the wrong way. Now he's in purgatory until September callups.

I have no idea if the Yankees pitching is doing better or if the Red Sox are just playing so badly they're making us look good.

But one takeawy has to be that some were panicking after we didn't acquire any pitching and we lost 3/4 to the Red Sox. We're not as bad as we looked then and we're probably not as good as we look after the top of the 4th tonight.

I'm still convinced Hal thought the extra million or two was an overspend and closed his checkbook.
