In the eyes of a 20 year old Yankee fan who has come accustom to watching winning baseball teams that are always above.500, this season has been a tough one. Some will call me a spoiled Yankee fan but this is not the Yankee way. If I have to pay $5 for a fucking water bottle, $15 for a hot dog and some fries I expect to be spoiled by a winning ball club. Yanks are winners, if we aren’t doing good, which in Yankees fan expectations we’re not, then you trade and trade until we are competitive again. Now I know this team is further away than a few small trades from a championship. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start taking steps in the right direction ASAP. The team we have now isn’t going to get better, there’s no upside for this roster only room for injuries with all these geezers. So what is Cashman waiting for? Trade Beltran while his trade value is high, I love the guy he’s been our best player all season but he’s 39 and we can’t grow with him. Aroldis Chapman is the next guy that has to be shipped off, we aren’t going to pay him in the offseason so we might as well get some pieces for him in return. A lot of these playoff teams are going to need a big time arm in the bullpen come September/October. I hear the Andrew Miller trade rumors all the time but I think that’s a piece we have to keep. Big time lefty arm and also one of the few Yankees to have a reasonable contract so we shouldn’t let him go unless we can get something big in return. If Cashman decides to buy at the deadline and trades a bunch of prospects to do so I’ll have to start a petition for his resignation because that would be ridiculous. The Yankees have to trade away the few desirable pieces they have, try to get rid of some of the bad contracts in the process, and call up some younger guys so they can get ready for the bigs. Let’s be honest Yankee fans this year is a bust it’s just not gonna happen so let’s make the best of it try to be competitive, watch some of our future stars shape themselves, and get ready for a big offseason followed by another big offseason. Getting back to the Yankee way of winning seems like a long road from now but, a year or two of waiting is a lot better than 86 years. Cashman prove yourself as a GM for once and get this team back to the promise land.
