Looking at some Astros pitchers
Cashman: Yankees might start season with current pitching staff

The Zack Greinke trade happened over the weekend, and we know the Yanks were at least somewhat involved. Mike and I have differing views of this, so we talk about the merits of each.

More interestingly, Brian Cashman said that he might have to go into the season with the current troops. That would make for an interesting pitching staff, but not interesting in the “they might be awesome” kind of way. It’s interesting in a hold-onto-your-butts kind of way.

Really, though, who could they get? That’s a perpetual point of conversation, and we’re definitely in on it.

    The Yankees were never hesitant to trade their prospects in the past because… drum roll please… their prospects just weren’t that good.

    Now that they are showing the ability to create and evaluate good prospects that can succeed in the majors, I completely understand why they are starting to value their prospects more (e.g., tabata, jackson, hughes, joba, kennedy, gardner, robertson).

    Compare that with the Red Sox, and I can’t remember a prospect, since Hanley, that they have traded which has turned out well for the other team.

    Also, let’s not forget that baseball in general is starting to shift towards young controllable talent.
