This is sort of a good news bad news thing. The good news is Torre wil be fired and as much as I respected the guy from 96 to 02, he has deserved to be axed ever since the 2004 ALCS meltdown.

The Bad news is Piniella willlikely get the jb and we all know Piniella is a moron.

Changes the Yankees Should Make in the offseason

Postby theultimate69 » Sat Oct 07, 2006 8:32 pm

The Yankees need to make some serious changes. Like Michael Kay said in the postgame, going with all talent and emotionless businessmen on the field will not get it done. They need to add young talent that will show emotion and CARE what happens. For the Yanks that lost today, it was just another day at the office. It was said before the game that Torre did not even talk to his players. Nothing.

1st off: The following veterans should be gotten ridden of, even if their contract gives them a few more years:

Mussina (do NOT pick up that option!)
Giambi
A-Rod (ask him to waive the no-trade clause)
Randy (obvious)
Sheffield (obvious)
Lidle
Wright
Bernie

The following players should remain:
Cano
Matsui
Wang
Proctor
Farnsworth
Rivera
Jeter
Posada
Damon
Melky
Abreu

I honestly believe that the Yankees cannot win with so much talent and experience anymore - they need to trade some of it away for young guys.

Targets:
#1: Dontrelle Willis
- Daisuke Matsuzaka
- Mark Teahen
- Scott Kazmir
- Jeremy Sowers
- Carl Crawford
- Ervin Santana
- Scot Shields
- Hanley Ramirez
- Garrett Atkins
- Eric Byrnes
- Duaner Sanchez
...among many others

Players that need to be brought up:
1. Phil Hughes
2. Kevin Thompson

Trade possibilities (they're blockbusters, but the truth is, the Yankees should make a trade for younger guys, even if they DO lose "talent" - because the chemistry has to improve):
1. A-Rod + Giambi ---> Kazmir + Crawford
2. A-Rod ---> E. Santana + Shields
3. A-Rod + Giambi ---> Willis + Hanley

Final thoughts: Torre needs to be fired. Girardi needs to be hired. The entire team chemistry needs to improve dramatically, we need to get younger, more unproven guys that will show emotion, excitement, and flare.

I watch the Yankees these days, and they look just like a businessman looks in his cubicle - just another day at work, boring, sad. When you watch the Mets, and the Tigers, to name two, the players look HAPPY, excited.

Did anyone see the celebrating the Tigers did after they won? Can you picture the Yankees doing something like that in New York? I can't.
I want to.

I love those trades too.

Giambi and A-Rod for Crawford and Kazmir?

Giambi and A-Rod for Dontrelle and Hanely?

I'm sure Tampa and Florida will be jumping at the opportunity!!

Any trades involving A-Rod would have the contracts balanced, with the Yankees therefore eating much of the salaries.

lol agreed Arod is pretty much the whole salary for both of those teams i bet they would be excited to get the 25 million dollar man. this isnt fantasy baseball after, this is a business neither of those trades would NEVER... EVER.... EVER come close to happening.
