What the Mouths are Saying in New York

Recommended Posts

This morning, on WFAN, the fill-ins for Boomer and Carton went on and on about how the Yanks are only a couple games out of the Wild Card and only 5 1/2 games back of the Orioles.

They used this as a reason why the Yanks made a good decision on not selling yesterday.

Right now, the feeling up here in NY is that the Yanks are more than capable of catching up and winning the division. Not once this summer have I heard them give any respect to the O's, not that I expected them to.

Stranger things have happened. Maybe they go on a run. But let's see what their record is on August 11 after they play 10 games against the Sox (who will most likely play tough against the Yanks), the Tigers and Cleveland.

I say 4-6 if they're lucky.

I caught a bit of Joe & Evan yesterday afternoon, and their essential take on the Yankees' moves were that they got a little better without giving up a whole lot. Probably not enough to win a championship, they conceded, but their thinking was that Prado and Drew are slight upgrades and that--hey, you never know--the team could catch fire. They also remarked that Cashman would never sell the team out from under Jeter during his final season.

They also had someone on who noted that the Yankees might get Pineda back soon (he's making his first rehab start at Scranton on Sunday, I think they said), which could be an upgrade to their staff.

Then they fielded a lot--and I mean a lot--of calls from delusional Mets fans with thoroughly asinine trade proposals. "Now, hear me out! Hear me out!" Maroons.

Interesting little twist I hadn't thought of...

Honest question, what do they have to sell that would be worth what a rebuilding team needs? They're a collection of expensive veteran debris, like every other Yankee team. Except now most of the expensive veteran debris is hurt or sucks. And it'd be hard to trade Gardner because he's probably their new franchise player! What are you getting back for bullpen guys? I mean honestly I look at that team, the entire franchise, and have no clue how they are only 5 behind us. Cashman should be fired and Girardi should be given a raise. One guy couldn't do less with more and the other couldn't do more with less.

They could get something for Tex maybe.

Maybe not...

Betances would have given them a nice return. Robertson too' date=' but not as much. Kuroda would have been a nice fit for a team like the Dodgers that wanted back end rotation help.[/quote']

I thought of Betances, but they'd probably rather keep him. :P
