    NYY question

    Beltran, Ichiro, soriano, Gardner, Ellsbury, wells 4 of which are 38+ 3 have been heading south for the past 3+ years 

    how does this work this is serious question. I just do not understand the thinking.  As I see it Jake, Brett and Carlos are the starters how do you keep the other 3 happy especially Soriano?

    I'm not sure I understand the question.  Are you referring to the disparity in their salaries? 

     

    What I DO know is this:  Winning buys a lot of happiness.  When teams are winning everyone jumps on the winning bus and salaries don't matter as much, but when teams start to lose things can go bad in a hurry.  Look what happened to the Sox in 2011. Everything was smooth sailing until the d-cation struck the v-lation and then nothing was going to turn things around.  Inertia - What's in motion tends to stay in motion, even if it's a downward spiral.

    It's not a coincidence that the Sox didn't have any long losing streaks AND they ended up with the best record in baseball in 2013.  One of the biggest jobs a manager has is to keep the team on an even keel and not let negative inertia pervade the team.  That's something that both Tito and Farrell are very good at.

    Getting back to the Yankees, the biggest challenge Giardi is going to have is to keep the team winning because they Y's salaries et al demand fans coming to the park to get the bills paid and if the fans don't show because the team is losing the whole house of cards tumbles - and with those salaries it's a darn big house!

    I think the Yankees are feeling a desperation to win this year. Trying to stockpile as many good players as possible, without regard to age. They don't seem to be thinking too much about the future. The long range plan may be lacking , but you can never count them out as long as they have the resources and ability to acquire the needed players each year.

    I'm sure the Yankees are trying to find takers for whatever they can get for Ichiro and Wells.  Soriano will probably DH and do well hitting in Yankee stadium and Gardner should play the other corner with Beltran if the Yankees are smart.

    Guess the idea is to have as many as possible when dealing w/ players that old and that injury prone. Ichiro / Wells / Soriano will all spend time at DH and or DL if not already taken by Jeter or Arod, so good luck to Yanks with this plan.

    I agree. I think the Yankees will bid adios to Wells and try to find a new home for Ichiro.

    Ells in CF, Beltran RF, Gardner LF, Soriano to DH.

    About right.  I'm not even sure why Wells is still there.

    I'm guessing the kid Almonte who was up last season will be the 4th outfielder.

    I miss old George Stein....man, he was quite a guy.  If he were still around, I doubt very much if Cano would have left,

    I'm pretty confident Jeter will dh most of the time. It's part of the reason they retained Ryan

    Well, Soriano and Wells are pretty cheap. Most of their deals are being paid by their ex clubs.

    One OF'er will be traded, and one will DH.

     

    (ARod & Teix have also been in steady decline, and then there is Jete.)

     

    Now, there is talk of signing Drew.

    Geesh!

    Me:  Mark Teixeira missed nearly all of last year.  Derek Jeter missed nearly all of last year.  curtis Granderson missed nearly all of last year.  Alex Rodriguez missed nearly all of last year.  Michael Pineda has missed all of the last 2 years.  At what point did you decide the solution for all of this had to inclde Brian Roberts?

     

    Cashman: Ummm.... want Vernon Wells

     

    Me:  Not even at gunpoint

          Agreed, but that is one case that the yanks got right.

          His son's are struggling to save face. At times I get the impression they are trying to rebuild their weak farm system only to see them make moves that further their demise. Makes you wonder if they will ever strike the proper balance of farm talent filling holes and FA signings filling out their roster annualy.
