Yankees Hot Stove: 9 tweets fans do not want to read

The New York Yankeesoff-season has been an unpleasant wake-up call of what is to come.

As a fan to say that my heart is breaking would be an understatement, as the new Yankee reign still talks the talk but it is all smoke and mirrors.

With the number of holes, aging and injured players and the fact that GM Brain Cashman has literally no money to spend to make the team a winner is not the kind of ownership that this historic franchise deserves.

What is even worse is that the Yankees have the means to make this team a winner but care not too.

Free agents that are good are not going to want 1-year deals, unless you are in the 40 and over club and plan to retire; or want the option to return to their homeland of Japan.

It is so discouraging and here are 9 tweets from the last few days that is just reiterating that this is really happening to the Yankees.

    Dodgers fans quickly following suit of Laker fans with confidence that Robinson Cano will bring his talents to Hollywood for '14 season @2B

    Yeah that's one that needs to be avoided at all cost

      Don – The way the Yankees are behaving this off-season is sad. It is the end of a dynasty when it didn't have to be. These one-year deals are insulting and players are not going to heed to taking less from the Yankees just to play in the Bronx and watch the owners get richer.

    Stand BY!!!! Kate just lost Chavy. All Hell is about to break out. With A-rod out. I must admit I think Cash blew it but stay tuned.

    • LLP says:

      Richard – I agree theYankees are in BIG trouble! This is not putting a World Series caliber team on the field and it is Hal Steinbrenner's fault. His true self is shining through….and it spells G-R-E-E-D!

    Wow, so much fail in this piece.

    Hmm, let's see where to begin, first of all, it is well known by anyone who follows baseball that this year's free agent class is one of the worst in recent history. Who exactly are you even proposing the Yankees should be spending their money on?

    And isn't specifically what everyone hates about the Yankees the fact that they overspend every year on free agents? Well how has that worked out these last few years? They're stuck with nearly un-tradeable, albatrosses of contracts for A-Rod, Tex, Granderson, among many others. So again, what exactly is the problem here?

    When the Yankees built their last dynasty they did so with a heavy influx of homegrown talent: Jeter, Mo, Posada, Pettite.

    The sad truth is that this iteration of the Yankees is on the decline. Jeter, A-Rod, Tex, Mo, Pettite, CC, Ichiro, and Ibanez are all old and honestly to think that they are capable of anything but just maintaining last seasons level of play would be foolish. But hey if we just give a huge contract to another over 30 player in Josh Hamilton THE CHAMPIONSHIP IS OURS!!!

    And again I have to wonder if the author watched the Yankees last year. Russel MArtin? THANK GOD HE'S GONE! He of the sub .200 batting average for a huge part of the year. He who comes up to the plate as basically a guaranteed out in the playoffs.

    I could really go on for a lot longer, but it's too frustrating. I'll just leave you with this passage from the ESPNNY homepage TODAY:

    "The way the collective bargaining agreement works, if the Yankees fall below the tax threshold in '14, they would then reset their bracket to zero. By 2015, when there is a mammoth free agent class — currently featuring names like Justin Verlander and Elvis Andrus — the Yankees possibly could return to being the Yankees of old, George's Yankees. Without a 50 percent tax, it could be bombs away all over again in two years."

      I agree. A lot of people cant remember when George bought the team, and changes the culture. Time, and the rules have changes and the business model has to also. I want to see a competitive team next year, but I am willing to watch the kids fill holes, while the business side resets. In 2 years we may have a couple of young studs, from the farm, and be ready to drop some cash in the FA market.
