Think All You Want, Men.....


I love this blog's winter " hot stove league." And I will provide my best thinking.

But something is nagging at me;  " none of it will matter."

There are many here who have brilliant ideas.  Some are simple and obvious.  Some are subtle.  But there is creative thinking and a high knowledge of the game.

All of this blog's output would help the Yankees.

But none of it will.

Our best years will no longer be championships.

 Hal will be too cheap to allow that.  And 2019 was the year which proved that.  We had chances to make huge upgrades ( at catcher, and at starting pitcher).  All were rejected, to the benefit of others and to the detriment of us.

Our best years will be just like 2019, where others celebrate and we look on with longing and despair.

We will get to see the space goggles used, and the cheap champagne sprayed, because our winning will end just after the 5 game series, following the play-in games.

It is like you throw a really cheap bachelor party for a friend, and then you don't get invited to the wedding.

The Yankees will not get number 28, next season no matter how hard we plan for it.

Not with Sanchez and Stanton as kingpins in our line-up.

IN ANSWER TO HOSS AND EVERYONE ELSE HOPING BABY HUEY SANCHEZ GOES AWAY, HE'S NOT.

WE WILL NEVER DEAL HIM, SO FORGET IT.

JUST TURN ON THE RADIO OR LISTEN TO ANY SPORTS SHOW OR EXPERT, AND ALL YOU HEAR IS, "SANCHEZ LEADS THE LEAGUE IN HOME RUNS. HE HAS LESS THAN 400 AT BATS!, DON'T BE RIDICULOUS, YOU CAN'T TRADE HIM!"

THAT IS FRANCESCA'S TAKE TOO.

CASHMAN AGREES.

WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO SINK OR SWIM WITH GARY.

I KNOW ONE THING.

WE BETTER PONY UP NICE TO ROMINE, BECAUSE HIGGY IS A #3 CATCHER, NOT #2.

IF WE LET ROMINE GO, THAT WOULD BORDER ON INSANITY IN MY MIND.

SANCHEZ IS TOO UNPREDICTABLE.

You need to completely ban any talk of Cole becoming a Yankee. It is utterly worthless. The Yanks will value him at a "price". The rest of the teams will value him the same BUT will recognize you need to "overpay" because that's what you have to do to get free agents like that (duh). Especially (and no on talks about this) because NY state sucks the life out of their deals with taxes. But no! It exceeds Hal's price, so it ain't happening. And why? Because they couldn't help themselves at the "value" of the Stanton trade. How's that looking now btw? Stanton means we can't afford a top starter. Ugh.

TRUE WORDS INDEED.

I'M WATCHING THE WORLD SERIES.

WASHINGTON IS WINNING AGAIN , (INCREDIBLY)....

WANNA KNOW WHY?

THEY ARE MAKING CONTACT.

THEY JUST PUT A BALL IN PLAY WITH THE BASES LOADED AND BREGMAN BOOTED IT. PROBABLY MEANT THE GAME.

SOMETHING WE DON'T DO.

ALL WE DO IS STRIKEOUT.

I agree, with sadness and frustration commensurate to that of our Dauntless Leader, Alphonso. (All right, so he does sound kind of daunted just now. Still!).

And yes, Washington played like world-beaters. And won with a much, much, much worse bullpen than the one we have. Funny how that's gone, isn't it Coops?

Also, it every playoff game he plays, Bregman puts another nail in the coffin of his MVP hopes.

It's amazing how the Red Sox pounded Houston last year and it looks like the Nationals will this year. Who would have thought that a low SO rate and solid staring pitching could win WS titles?
