  • New York Yankees 2018 Thread…

    We're hurting after tonight's crushing game 7 loss, but we should hold our heads up as it was a great season. Especially since it was supposed to be a rebuilding year. The future however looks very bright.

    Speaking of the future, I'll starting this 2018 New York Yankees thread with an article written by Joel Sherman just a few days ago. It's a great read!

    2017 NEW YORK YANKEES: KEEP 'EM OR DUMP 'EM?

    The Yankees were supposed to be a year away. But thanks to the spark provided by the Baby Bombers, the high-powered Yankees chased the Red Sox all the way to the finish line. But anything short of a World Series title around here means you came up small. Now that the 2017 campaign is over, it's time to put on your GM cap and vote on the future of the Yankees. Read more.

      ‘Raw’ Hal Steinbrenner speaks as big Yankees offseason begins

      LOS ANGELES — Hal Steinbrenner admitted being “a little raw right now.” He was speaking by phone Monday from his office in the Tampa stadium named for his father, not even 48 hours having elapsed since the Yankees lost ALCS Game 7 to the Astros.

      “You know me, you know my family, it’s a little recent,” Steinbrenner said of the pain of the season ending.

      Nevertheless, in a 20-minute conversation about the past, present and future of the franchise, the sentiment he returned to over and over was a pride for these Yankees. Read more.

          I certainly hope you're wrong as I want him back big time (Cashman too), and I think he will be.

            There are reports that Girardi wants to be with his family.
            Cashman is staying.

              He has said that he wants to talk it over with his family, but those reports claiming that Joe Girardi prefers to leave the Yankees and not come back are just rumors for now.

              His own brother thinks Joe will want to come back, and for good, obvious reasons. The emergence and growth of the Baby Bombers. I myself can't imagine him letting somebody else ride the wave of this very good and young team that will only get better over the next several years.

                Here is what Joe has said publicly:

                "I love what I do," Girardi said. "I've always said, the first thing that I do is I always talk to my family first. They come first, because I think when you have a job, your family has to buy in, too. It's not just what you want out of life. It's everyone buying in. So I'll sit down, talk to my wife and my kids, and see where they're at and what they're thinking. And then we'll see what the Yankees are thinking."

                  I want him to stay, just to be clear.
                  I hope you're right.

                      How the Yankees can finish 2018 as World Series champs

                      The heavy lifting is done, yet here comes the hard part.

                      Over the past few years, Brian Cashman has helped overturn an organizational philosophy that favored older, expensive and famous over young, deep and flexible, both in skill and finances.

                      The 2017 Yankees came faster and went further than expected, reaching Game 7 of the ALCS. Their roster and farm system and future payroll are lined up to produce even better teams. But the step from promise to a parade is perilous.

                      Think about the 2015 playoffs. The Mets were ahead of schedule, went to the World Series, looked like the future was bright and have regressed since. The Astros were ahead of schedule, won the wild card game (over the Yanks) and then missed the playoffs last year before augmenting so well in the offseason and in-season that they are going to their second World Series ever — a symbol that growth in baseball is not always linear.

                      Then there were the 2015 Cubs — like these Yankees, a wild card that got to and lost in the LCS. They came back and won it all. Read more.

                          Girardi is OUT as Yankees manager. I wonder who will be next?

                            I'm too much in a state of shock to think who the next manager will be.
