...then Brown.

Now he wants to overpay for a stiff like Milton. Someone please get us a GM who has a clue about pitching. There is a reason he is a type-C free agent...he stinks.

Rotoworld:
The Yankees will offer Eric Milton $21 million-$25 million over three years, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Milton is a Type C free agent, so the Phillies won't be awarded compensation if he signs elsewhere. That's a big reason why the Yankees are moving quickly to sign him. Nov. 12 - 1:06 pm et

Would you rather that the Ynankees go into another postseason with an all-right-handed staff?

Yes, if it means throwing a stiff like Milton out there. What difference does it make lefty/righty if the guy throwing the ball blows? David Wells is a better option and a cheaper one.

Cashman's been less than impressive in the last few years and you guys may know already how I feel about Milton. This move would be B-A-D.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

I agree with LBJ for a change....Milton is pretty bad. Milton for 21-25 million is very bad.

Bring back Gene Michael, says I. He stood up to Steinbrenner. Cashman and his crew has become Steinbrenner's little monkey boys, I'm convinced. Instead of making smart baseball decisions, they just do what'll make Stein happy.

Think about it. The man has his career and his family to think of; he knows that if he says the wrong thing, he's fired. It would be no different with anyone else. The problem is not Cashman, its George.

That simply is a very convenient cop-out. Whenever something goes wrong, it is George. When it goes right it s Cashman. Fact is, Cashman has been to blame for a number of inept moves. Blame George for Contreras...for A. Boone if you want to. He has actually been rigth alot mor ethan wrong (Wells, Clemens, Sheff, Boggs, etc).

Cashman was the one getting Weaver...he was the one getting Brown...he and the Yankee brass are the ones pushing Milton. Why would George insist on Milton?... because of his name recognition and prior great pitching?...please. Cashman has made some good moves, but his record is mixed, esp wrt pitching. Moose signed...Lieber...Wells (a George move) all good...The bullpen and the starters have generally been lousy. Witasik for D. Jimenez. The Vaz signing has blown up...the Weaver deal was a disaster leading the another disaster in the Brown deal. This is Cashman and the Yankee brain trust, who let's faces it, would not know pitching talent if Cy Young himself showed up at their doorstep.
