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 knows the Yankees desperately need pitching

Sounding like his old Boss, the late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner who always said you can never have enough pitching, Bombers general manager Brian Cashman said “pitching, pitching, pitching” is what he and the team’s front office will be focusing on during the winter. Could that mean bringing closer Aroldis Chapman back to the Bronx for a second stint, fresh off the Cuban flame-thrower winning a title with the Cubs?

“We’re going to go through everything. We’ve had our scouting meetings. The areas that we would like to focus on—the bullpen and starting pitching,” Cashman said Thursday night at the ALS Association Greater New York Chapter’s 22nd annual Lou Gehrig’s Sports Award gala, where Cashman received the Jacob Javits Lifetime Achievement Award. “I think the biggest focus will be pitching, pitching, pitching.”

The Yankees really do need pitching, especially starting pitching.  Unfortunately, there’s not a single starting pitcher I’d sign from the free agent pool.

I suppose you could throw some money at Rich Hill and hope he exceeds his 110 innings in 2016 which is the most innings he’s pitched in a season since 2007.  Which also happens to be the only other season in his major league career where he exceeded 58 innings in a season.  I’m probably in the minority but I’d possibly consider bringing back Ivan Nova depending on the terms.  He pitched well for Pittsburgh after being traded there, wouldn’t cost you a draft pick, is still relatively young and further removed from Tommy John surgery and could possibly at least soak up some innings.  But I completely understand why most Yankee fans would not want him back.

I wouldn’t touch any of the other pitchers on this list.

Happy shopping Cashman.
