Cashman: ‘We’re all on watch’

If our outfield could hit, maybe we'd score runs
Giambi not progressing much

In an interview on the Michael Kay Show on Thursday, Brian Cashman declined to say if Joe Torre’s job was safe. “I think everybody currently shouldn’t feel very comfortable and I don’t think anybody does,” he said. With this lukewarm endorsement in mind, I think the next 10 games against the A’s, Twins and Angels will go a long way toward determining Torre’s future with the Yanks.

    The only thing I have to say about the current state of the Yankees is that whenever Ken Singleton laughs he reminds me of Dr. Hibbert from the Simpsons. oh yeah.. and go yanks.

    I cant say that I care for his attitude that the players on board are the ones who will have to play their way out of this mess.

    If he wont make in house moves or trades to improve the team, then i hope at the deadline he will be be selling off parts like A-Rod (if he will agree of course) Abreu, Matsui, Farnsworth, Mussina, Cano, Proctor, and more to playoff contenders when value will be highest.

    If we are going to continue to stink up the joint this season and not make the playoffs, then lets move the dead weight and add to our stable of prospects, maybe some position players.

    Luddy: I wouldn’t trade A-Rod. He is, for better or worse, a key part of this franchise, and the Yanks should really lock him up long-term ASAP.

    The other guys can go. I wouldn’t miss any of them.

  • Luddy Bazcej

    You are probably right, but the potential return for A-rod could be magnificent…maybe 5-6 quality major leaguers and/or prospects.

    Would you pull the trigger on an A-rod deal that brought back F-Rod, Jered Weaver and 3-4 top Angels prospects?

    To me Cashman’s fate is welded to Joe Torre’s. Last fall he refused to make the needed move, firing Torre, opting instead too advocate for his return. This club is soft folding at the first sign of resistance. Look at 94, 05 and that ridiculous exhibition last fall. The talent was their last year and with all the problems this year I think they still could have made a race of it with a tougher attitude.

    Cashman, leaving Torre out of the equation for a moment, has not been a top shelf GM but I think he could have been given another year if he hadn’t brought Joe back too waste yet another year and another 200mil.
