If the Yankees don't sign Max Scherzer, the Steinbrenner Kids should sell the team.

Max Scherzer is pretty much all that's left for the Yankees to add any meaningful player for next season.

Dumb and lazy Steinbrenner Kids never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity: Tampa GM goes to Dodgers. Oct. 15, 2014

A few days ago the Steinbrenner Kids, who own the New York Yankees, signed their 16 year incumbent general manager (GM) Brian Cashman to a new three year contract.  Did they know that the Tampa Rays GM was available, that Andrew Friedman was talking to the Los Angeles Dodgers?

A Tale of Two Cities

Yankees are just another team. Is that good?  Monday, November 24, 2014 ...


Wow, the Ramirez contract looks really good compared to those that Brian Cashman gave out a year ago.  Really good.  Maybe Cashman is saving up for those nameless Cubans but maybe Boston is too.  Maybe Cashman has some other plans, like pouncing on starting pitchers Max Scherzer or Jon Lester.  Or maybe Cashman is gun shy after failing to finally get the Yankees under the soft salary cap last year, which would have freed up $100 million that could be put to good use now.  Cashman seems to be compounding his failures and chief executive Hal Steinbrenner continues to be oblivious.
