Another Panda Jerk: Cashman

It's time to pull the Sabbathia offer, Bronny. You're making us look stupid, panda jerk! You let this guy sit on the offer for a month, meanwhile, his agent is just shopping it around trying to find something better from another team. Not $40M better, but just a little better, so his client can go play in the NL. If he signs for $110 and an an opt-out clause with the Brewers or Giants, that's on you Bronny. Don't be a panda jerk. Pull the offer, blow Lowe out of the water, give Pettitte his money, and figure out your fifth starter internally or by trade (under no circumstances sign Burnett, since he'll get hurt and you'll just have to figure out your fifth spot internally or by trade). Playtime's over. Time to move on.

Right. Pull the plug on CC before he pulls it on us. I say trade everybody for Roy Halladay!

If Toronto would only be willing to trade Halladay, you'd have to do what it takes. That's bigger than Santana as far as I'm concerned. A month with no answer while Genske shops the offer around is pulling the plug. If nothing else is forthcoming, they come back and we offer $130M, take it or leave it.

The problem is that we don't really have two starters right now. Yes, Wang and Chamberlain are starters, but Chamberlain won't be allowed to pitch the whole season. You add Pettitte and Lowe to that, and we still have one vacancy to fill right away and another vacancy to fill 3/4 of the way through the season. Plus Wang is coming off an injury, Pettitte was largely ineffective last season, we wouldn't know how Lowe would readapt back to the AL East, and although Aceves, Hughes or some other minor leaguer could fill that 5th starter spot, I don't know that its the best building strategy. They are being patient with Sabathia because adding him betters this team immediately. However, I think a Steinbrenner impossed deadline wouldn't be a bad thing. We can't wait forever, and neither can the rest of baseball. I think a lot of teams besides the Yankees and Brewers are looking to this situation to see how they'll play things.
