New York Yankees Hot Stove: Cashman Makes Progress On His Not-To-Do-List

I guess it is so far so good for New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman, as he crossed a lot of things off his 2012 off-season not-to-do-list at the Winter Meetings this past week.

One thing that I learned so far this off-season is that emulating Moneyball and ex-Red Sox GM Theo Epstein was just a fad.

As there is a new “it girl” in baseball and it is dubbed the Evil Empire.

What are those baseball fans that relentlessly whine about the Yankees “buying championships” going to do?

I mean, now that everybody’s doing it.

Maybe it is time to just shut-up and finally get it through your thick skulls that MLB has no salary cap. This applies to all 30-teams the same, allowing all owners equal freedom to spend away, or not.

    Now all of us “haters” on the Yankees “strategy” are just going to laugh at the Yankees for bein terrible at utilizing thier own “strategy.” Buying every “good” baseball player in the world looks incredible from the outside, especially when you flop in the playoffs because CC Sabathia can’t pitch games 1-7. Now that every team is “strategizing” we can point out the fact that the Yanks, Sox, Marlins, Phillies, and Angels do not comprise all of MLB and the Yankees will still spend more than everyone else, ideally failing in the end because it’s hilarious.

      Yea but Pegg…..the Yankees do win and are always in the playoffs, and that says something.

      The Yankees fans pack in that Stadium nightly, and the owners want to put the best team ont eh field possible….so my question to you is:

      What is so wrong with making money and re-spending it on your team????

      There is a reason that every player dreams of being a Yankee…..cause they are the most winning franchise in all of sports. You can't buy that Pegg.
