Another underwhelming offseason by Cashman/The Yankees.


Recommended Posts

Rotation is Cole, 2 guys that havent pitched in 2 years (Kluber & Taillon), 2 rookies and Montgomery who hasnt proven anything. Seriously? The NY Yankees need to enter a season with a high risk rotation like this? Why??

Lineup is still unbalanced. Too many guys who dont make consistent contact and arent clutch. Literally the same flawed lineup as last year. 

How is Gary Sanchez still on this team btw?? Literally the worst defensive catcher I have ever seen. 

Yankees have 1 World Series ring in the last 20 years. Cashman has done some good things rebuilding this team after 2013/14 when they were mediocre but lately he's done nothing impressive. Maybe it's Hal not wanting to spend extra dollars but I dont see this franchise as very hungry to get over the top. 

Cashman doesnt seem to understand that you have to give up big league talent to get other big league talent that makes his team better overrall. No reason why Gleyber or Voit shouldnt have been available in a trade for a guy like Whit Merrifield or a front line starter. Right now we have a pretty bad infield defense with Voit at 1b, Gleyber at SS, Even worse when Sanchez is catching.

They resigned LeMaheiu and Kluber is a good buy low signing who realistically can be a solid #2 starter for a season

Was the best position player on the market and they resigned him. That, in itself, made this a great off season.

It is what it is.  There were no sexy moves to be made this offseason besides signing Bauer which wasn’t happening

Zach Britton - MRI

He's being shutdown - Needs orthoscopic surgery to remove bone chip in his elbow.

He'll probably miss 4-6 weeks.

Sucks

So Sanchez hit 2 home runs early on in spring training and the entire Yankees team and coaching staff tried to boost his confidence and say how great he looks, how he might be an MVP candidate this year etc.

He's hitting about .200 in spring training now.

Big mistake bringing this guy back. Cant catch a fastball, cant block a ball in the dirt and clueless at the plate as a hitter. Awful awful player.

I am not sure how they didn't make a change at Catcher.  The ace hates him.

And in another attempt to boost lil Garys confidence.......they made him the catcher for Cole on opening day.

If Cole and Gary can’t get along Higashioka will just end up catching Cole.  Andy Pettite had a similar arrangement with Jim Leyritz back in the day 
 

I’m way more worried about our starting rotation depth and now bullpen depth

Rotation...they have Devi at AAA and Severino coming back over the summer.

Just need them to not have three guys get hurt early and they should be fine.
