Pissing ) Passing ) on Hope

You can see it in the wake of our 2 game win streak.

Or our 2-2 record against Houston and the White Sox, so far.

We don't need a potentially game changing young guy from Cuba, we need more 35+ pitchers.  It is in the air.

The thought is;  we have a killer line-up with Beltran, Ichiro, McCann, Texiera, Gardener and Ellsbury.  We have filled in the infield for next year with Drew and that number 12 person.  And, we have Prado to play everywhere.  Not to mention a healthy Francisco.  The thought is:  all of the above ( or most ) have just had, "off years," and in 2015 will rock.

So we need more pitchers with huge contracts.  The thought is:  Greene and McCarthy aren't really any good.  Nor is Phellps and Pineda is unreliable.  CC still haunts us.  And Tanaka will have surgery.  So let's add a few more starters whose arms are dying, and leave the offense alone.  Let's not add spend on run producers, or clutch hitters.

We have plenty of pop ( pardon the irony ).

Just let Cashman's convoluted reasoning, and poor player selections, continue to interface with the Steinbrothers' feigned interest in the team.

Money for old guys.  Take no risks.  Bottle up all prospects' hopes forever.  Don't get into a bidding war for anyone who is a position player.  Remember that drugged out bum we signed out of Cuba a few years back to play third.  Don't do that again.

The thought is:  the Yankees are a magnet for guys whose careers are shot and who are looking for a cushy retirement in," the pinstripes I have always wanted to wear."

The thought is;  we are screwed.

Wonder where Wang is these days? Three years, 15 million sounds about right.

According to heyman:

"Yanks loved rusney. Saw 20-HR power. But bowed out in $40M range. luxury tax implications likely figured once prado came."

essentially, hal's budget preventing a "risky" move once again.
