Links: "Gardner is our everyday left fielder and Headley is our everyday third baseman, unless trade opportunities provide themselves to put me in a position to consider making a move.’’

1. In other words, "That 'FOR SALE' sign on the windshield is purely decorative." Hard to imagine, but Gardy and Headley might soon be disappeared, according to the Morning Murdoch. Jacoby Ellsbury? Well, as they say, hindsight is 2020. (The year he leaves.)

2. A harrowing historical recount of how the alt-Yankees in an alt-universe might have alt-drafted and alt-Mike Trout. Did you know the Angels selected Trout with the pick received from the Evils for signing Mark Teixeira - dislodging the Brewers from getting that pick for us signing CC Sabathia? If not for Hal's 2008-09 spending spree - which remains his only success as an owner - well, let's just say there were consequences. Don't read this with a hot cup of coffee in your hand. You'll want to fling at someone.

3. The Yankees deal the dog-man, James Pavos - yet another guy they probably would have lost in next month's Rule 5 draft. In exchange, they get a 21-year-old high-achiever, the prototypical type of prospect (RIP Ben Gamel) they'll someday trade rather than lose in the draft.

4. Gleyber Torres wins the AFL MVP, revving the YES hype machine, though invoking unfortunate memories of past recipient Eric Duncan.

5. Twenty-five year old relief pitcher Giovanni Gallegoes is named to 40-man roster. Personal prediction here: Watch out for this guy. I saw him last season in Syracuse, and he was beyond lights out - three Ks in barely 10 pitches. Wondered why he didn't get a call-up. Figured the fix was in, and to get noticed, he'd have to save a A-list celebrity from a burning tower. Good to know I'm not alone. (And that it wasn't a drug flashback. Wait. Are drug flashbacks real, or was that something they just said to scare us?)

I REMEMBER YOUR LIVE ASSESSMENT OF GALLEGOS..... HE HAS BEEN COMPLETELY UNDER THE RADAR....ACTUALLY, HE HAS NEVER EVEN BEEN ON THE RADAR!..... HOPING YOU ARE SPOT ON WITH HIM........... AS FOR CASHMAN, WORDS CAN NOT EXPRESS MY FRUSTRATION/RAGE TOWARDS HIS THINKING......SO YOU MEAN TO TELL ME, IF WE JUST "GET RID" OF CHASE HEADLEY, AND BRETT GARDNER (AND SALVAGE EVEN SOME OF THEIR SALARIES), WE HAVE NO ONE ELSE WHO CAN REPLACE THEM??? IS HE FUCKING NUTS?....(WITH ALL THE "SUPER PROSPECTS" AND OTHER POSSIBILITIES WE HAVE)???? ........CASHMAN MAKES ME BERSERK.

Don't forget, Anon, Cashman has earned our respect and some slack because of his stellar trading history.

Saw this on ESPN, the Red Sox network with a good Yankees writer or two: "Aroldis Chapman was exposed in the postseason by his diminished velocity when fatigued and questionable command, two things he'll need to work on."

This is a big reason why I'd take Miller instead of the garage killer any day of the week. He's more consistent, imo. Not too mention the clubhouse factor. Everybody likes Andrew, and nobody with a garage likes Aroldis.

YEAH, MILLER WAS THE GUY TO KEEP.....IF CLINT FRAZIER AND OR JUSTUS SHEFFIELD ARE A BUST, CASHMAN HAS KILLED US AGAIN, AND IN A MURDEROUS WAY.....MILLER'S SLIDER JUST CUTS THROUGH THE BEST HITTERS IN THE GAME LIKE BUTTER....HE IS ALMOST NEAR MARIANO TERRITORY AS A RELIEVER.....AND WHAT WAS HE WORTH????????
