If the steinbrenners fired brian cashman today & hired me as GM, during the press conference I would announce to NY that "We are rebuilding this team". Get younger...much younger through draft picks. Trade for prospects, trade for expiring contracts. So when those contracts expire and said player signs with another team, we get a draft pick as compensation.
No more over paying players where we pay for the player they use to be & not the player they currently are. F that. Thats where this whole Arod thing really grinds my gears.
Its time to look for the next Jeter, Mo, Pettite, jorge etc...Which honestly, i think the yankees have done a ishhh job doing. Thats why there 40 years old still playing full time. They cant let go because of what they have done when they were 30. (Mo & Jeter is an exception tho, currently).
My philosophy would be, not where I wanna be next year but where I wanna be in 3-5 years. Get a young team that can build & grow together. If the first season we finish with 75 wins, then we finish with 75 wins. Deal with it. Maybe the next season we can have 85 wins. The next season with 90 wins & gunning for the wild card spot. 4th year 95 wins, in contention to win the division, pretty much kicking everyones *** & the entire team is under 30.
