Do these clowns give this stuff any thought?
Yanks are four down in the loss column. No team should quit in that spot after 88 games. Suppose Yanks sweep Boston?
Plus, it's Cashman's fault they're in this mess. He won't last the year.
None of the assets that Cashman wants to dump are worth much:
Carlos Beltran: old, probably limited to AL as DH
Mark Teixeira: not hitting
Brian McCann: 32 year old catcher, owed $5.3 million more for final two months this season, plus $17 million each of next two seasons. Who wants a CATCHER who is likely to break down?
Ivan Nova: two month rental
Nathan Eovaldi: inconsistent; Dodgers and Marlins already gave up on him
Jacoby Ellsbury: Is this a joke?

Nice work, Cashman. NOBODY is taking Ellsbury.
