        Willing to bet the equipment Brian uses for this isn't questionable, used ropes just coming off of repairs.

        If only he valued the starting rotation a fraction as much.

          I wonder if signing Tanaka was one of the Yankee contingency plans? I hope they have some plans/preferences ahead of Tanaka.

          The quality of the starting pitchers that might be available is narrowing down, it feels like.

            Signing Tanaka was probably their only plan. Are there any decent starting pitchers left out there now?

              I never read anything about the Yankees talking to Tanaka.

                Eight Sportswriters from Athletic forecasting a long lockout....most have typical pitchers/catchers report date (or a little later) as "settlement date".

                I presume Hal/Cash perhaps figure there will be discounts available from players looking to get to a team during spring training.

                  Teams don't get discounts for premium talents. Harper signed in early March. Machado signed in mid February. When teams decide to spend 200-300M and are willing to commit 10 years for a player, the shorten spring training would not stop them from waiting.

                  Maybe Gardner would give the Yankees a discount.

                    I agree but Hal/Cashman have been bargain basement hunting (except for Cole fo course which was the sampler for the fan base) for quite some time. I don't see Hal changing his colors now.....he's just going to hide behind the statement that available players cost too much.

                      Promoting from within is to be expected in an organization that constantly feels like they know everything and nothing is wrong. Essentially proves that the assistant coaches let go were just scapegoats.

                          Because that's all they could charge if they wanted to have any hopes of getting annual attendance up to the lofty total of 1 million.

                          If they could have charged more, they would have.

                          I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd, when they said "sit down" I stood up.

                            This team just doesn't get it. They're going to stubbornly double-down instead of admitting their philosophy is flawed.

                              Amazing how stubborn this organization is. Cashman will forever believe that he is the smartest guy in the room.

                                We are way past doubling down. This is like sextupling or septupling down.
