Comments on: Yankees Trade Rumors: Cliff Lee http://ladylovespinstripes.com/yankees-5/ Baseball from a lady's perspective. Tue, 19 Aug 2014 22:00:16 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 By: jerrynotpit http://ladylovespinstripes.com/yankees-5/#comment-102308 Fri, 18 Jul 2014 15:26:17 +0000 http://ladylovespinstripes.com/?p=42149#comment-102308 The Yankees need to do much better with their farm system. They are busy trading for players who have been around a while when they should be looking at bringing in new young talent. It they get better at developing new players with the cash they have it would be hard for someone else to lure them away. Should they bring Lee in? Right now I don't see another option. Something has to happen for them to make the playoffs.

I think the need to do a better job of developing their pitchng. I think they baby them too much in the minors. I do not think Cashman has done that good of job with the resources he has available. For every good move there are two bad ones. I do agree they need to give some of the kids a shot to inject some excitement into the team. Like Rob Refsnyder should get a shot. I think Cashman should really try to pry a shortstop away from the Cubs. I think that Javier Baez could be the shortstop for the next 10 years. The future is now. I enjoy your prespective and reading your blog.

The A's have to win a WS still this season before we declare them the end all be all. Money comes with playing in NYC…. And it doesn't bother me because it is not mine being spent.

But as far as you thinking the Yankees will hurt financially…. That is not going in the near future, if ever, as the franchise is worth the second most money in sports behind Manchester United. The money is spent frivolously because the Yankees have a plethora of it.

I do agree with your talent point Roger, as the Yankees seem to struggle developing players or more specifically, transferring them from Minors to Majors. Gardner, Robertson, Betances, Nova are all home grown, and Cano was too so I think bad luck has something to do with it a little too.

Burrnet, ARod, Beltran, Soriono. So lets start with the farm system and start giving guys a chance. Oakland has a $75 million payroll and look where they are. Yanks have 200 million and look where they are. At some time yanks will hurt financially and should stop spending 10 years on anyone. First of all no one is worth any money they make. Lets put everyone on steriods and play ball.
