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.

NY Post: Yankees and trade deadline: Don’t mess with team of future

This is not the time to make a big deal for a starting pitcher. Let the Dodgers, Royals, Red Sox and Astros capture the trade-deadline headlines, just as other teams largely dominated last winter’s Hot Stove League. While Sonny Gray and Jose Quintana count as good pitchers who can be controlled beyond 2017, they need not cause you to tear up your map and start fresh.

In their last 22 games, the Yankees have gone 6-16. That they started the year 38-23 before experiencing this massive market correction evokes the quality plummet in “The Flash” from Season 1 to Season 2. They’re good enough that they probably won’t crash all the way below .500; many of their losses during this slump can be attributed to a leaky bullpen that should fix itself, and Starlin Castro, Matt Holliday and Aaron Hicks should return from the disabled list, in that order, and improve the lineup. Yet they don’t appear good enough to turn right back around and play the sort of high-level ball that put them atop the American League East for the better part of a month and a half.

Remember, a year ago at this time, the Yankees (in far worse shape at the time) held fierce internal debates about what to do. Hal Steinbrenner was admittedly hesitant to draw the white flag by trading Carlos Beltran, Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Ivan Nova. Brian Cashman won over the Yankees’ managing general partner, however, and Steinbrenner, a student of social media, quickly appreciated how positively the Yankees’ fan base reacted to his organization’s long-term thinking.

I agree.  I might even explore trading some veterans if you can get something back that will help in the future.  I don’t think they’ll go with that approach, but I’ll be happy if they just don’t trade any of their top tier prospects.
