Current Projected

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.
Jeter is King

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.

NYDN: Brian Cashman doesn’t see Yankees adding another pitcher this offseason

Brian Cashman got his closer (Aroldis Chapman) and his DH (Matt Holliday) this offseason.

The Yankees GM just hasn’t been able to add another starter — and it doesn’t appear he’s going to.

“We stay engaged with the marketplace, but I think more likely than not — 99 percent likely — we are going to be going to camp with what we have,” Cashman told Jim Bowden on the former GM’s SiriusXM radio show Monday morning.

“And that’s (Mashiro) Tanaka, CC (Sabathia) and (Michael) Pineda locked into three spots and then five guys competing for the final two spots between — in no order — (Adam) Warren, (Luis) Cessa, (Chad) Green, (Bryan) Mitchell and (Luis) Severino.”

Given the paucity of quality starting pitchers on the free agent market, and the likely cost to acquire starting pitchers via trade, this makes sense.  I don’t have the warm fuzzies about the rotation as current constituted, but you can at least squint and see the Yankees putting together a serviceable rotation out of what they have on hand, perhaps with some reinforcement later in the season from the farm system.

Things could be better, but they could certainly be worse.
