A perfect example of how little was out there to be had.
Cashman did the right thing. Keep what you have and move forward.

Absolutely. Liriano's ERA during August was 5.54.

Yep. I'm surprised the Yankees didn't try to go after White Sox pitching after it was apparent they were done.

Dude, we've known this for a LONG TIME. Yankees were looking for SP which the Twins have an abundance of, but nobody could produce this year.

Interns need to stop letting their kids write this crap.

Yeah, that makes me ill just thinking about it.

When you are 35-40,with prior injuries its tough to be effective the entire season.C.C. even looks tired.

That was one of the few teams with something to offer in trade. Could be a big house cleaning there this winter.

Cash, please unload AJ and Hughes first chance you get. Nova, Garcia and even Colon have saved the Yankees from complete disaster.
