Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

FanRag: Heyman | Yankees eyeing Yu Darvish

New York Yankees people do like Yu Darvish, and at a reasonable price, he will be seriously considered. It seems everyone’s strategy this year is to wait for the price to drop.

The Yankees are intent on adding a fine starting pitcher and have had trade discussions regarding Gerrit Cole, Chris Archer and Michael Fulmer, and are looking at free agent Alex Cobb, and possibly some others. Cole is probably the most likely fit in terms of a trade, as Fulmer is coming off an injury and Archer plays on the division rival Rays, but word is, there’s been little progress since the Winter Meetings in talks with Pittsburgh.

The Yankees also are believed to like Cobb, but sources suggest they haven’t given up the idea of Darvish — though it might be a tight squeeze to sign him and stay under the $197 million luxury tax threshold. It’s possible they might need to make a little room, which could entail the trade of another high-priced veteran, perhaps Jacoby Ellsbury, who has a full no-trade clause but is said to be willing to consider a few scenarios.

I’m not sure what’s reasonable.  Four years and $80M?  Five years and $100M?  I like Darvish, but not if it means trading TPBG™ to fit Yu’s salary into HalCap™. Trading Smellsbury on the other hand…

I’d certainly rather sign Darvish than trade for Gerrit Cole.  FIP be damned.
