I mean, the reality was, we were supposed to be on the other end of that Michael Morse trade. Instead, the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics worked with the Washington Nationals and came up with the right combination of players and now Michael Morse is just a dream, read HERE.
Morse is a right handed batter with
power. The perfect player for what Brian
Cashman was looking for when he told the
world that he wasn’t interested in a left handed DH (like Raul Ibanez), but
instead, a righty outfielder with power, read HERE.
It’s times like this that Yankee
fans actually DO know what we’re talking about. Michael Morse needed to be in
pinstripes. We were willing to look at
all the data and hinting by Yankee brass and conclude logically…
“OK, so the idea of a big time free agent isn’t in the budget. Morse is a
trade. We don’t have to give away the farm, we just need to give away enough to
get him.” We settled on it! We learned to like it. We read the tweet (HERE) by Jack Curry of YES that
stated that the Yankees and Nationals would talk about a trade.
I will hold my Yankee owners accountable if they went to the media
and swore “they weren’t done yet” and yet, they ARE done. It would not only piss me off, it would help
me organize my summer, something I've been saying I'd do for the past month now... not go to games. The
fans deserve what we want and if brass don’t get the players to better our team… I just won’t go to games anymore. Why
pay the money if we’re not going to see guys we want? This is not a boycott, please don’t
misunderstand me. This is a stand
against an aggravated off season.
be on Double Secret probation in my own mind, then, when I felt like going
again, I’d lift it. I’m a Yankee fan
after all, I wouldn’t be able to say away too long.
I know Brian Cashman never disappoints and I’m his biggest
fan. But I’m also not going to sit here
and write about how he’s about to do something great for us Yankee fans and
we’re going to love it. Because, let’s
face it, I just don’t think he can. It’s not that he doesn’t want to, but let’s
be honest, Cashman has been reduced to a puppet and it all started when Rafael Soriano was signed against his wishes.
Cashman needs to “check in.” That’s my opinion of course, and to be honest,
if that’s the case, it’s a shame.
The Yankees have a great ball club, but the sluggish off
season is getting on my nerves and I
know it’s getting on yours as well.
Players have come and gone this winter.
Some of those big time free agents were just not in the cards and I
understood that, especially if you have
the $189 million salary cap staring you in the face, but there are great
players that the Yankees can trade for and nothing has been done. And not to beat a dead horse, but if
Giancarlo Stanton, Justin Upton and Michael Morse are standing in a lineup, and
you know what you know about money, and how the Yanks are less likely to give
up farmhands, etc… who are you choosing? Morse would have been perfect and now
most likely Yankee brass WON’T go after the others because the cost is too
They should hold a press conference just to
tell us that, because at least then I can respect their decision even though I wouldn't agree with it. But if they keep telling me “we’re not done
yet” and nothing get’s done… I’d be happy to not travel to the Bronx this
summer…. Not as a boycott, but as a stand.
That’s right… do something that makes sense Yanks, or you’re on Double Secret probation… by me!
