With only a couple of days until Christmas, I thought I’d check in with this blog one more time to:
#1 Wish everybody a very Merry.
#2 Express my bewilderment at Cashman’s off-season “strategy.”
To elaborate, the Yankees GM said starting pitching was a priority and yet he’s done nothing except re-sign Sweaty Freddy. Puzzling? It is to me.
Today’s report was that he likes Kuroda but doesn’t have the money. Excuse me? The Yankees don’t have the money?
We’ve seen Darvish, Wilson, Buehrle, and now Gio Gonzalez land with teams. Yes, there’s Edwin Jackson and Roy Oswalt, but nobody expects the Yankees to go after them (with good reason).
So where does that leave us?
Right – with an empty Christmas stocking.
I just hope Hector Noesi turns out to be the second coming of Ivan Nova.
