Yawn - My Reaction To Brian Cashman's Latest Trade

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’m so underwhelmed, so that’s why I yawn. I mean, it’s hard to get excited about this one.
In case you missed it, don’t worry you didn’t miss anything earth shattering but, the Yankees made a trade yesterday! *YAWN*

HERE is your headliner if you missed it. The Yankees traded for 27-year old outfielder Greg Allen. YAY? In exchange for Allen, the Yankees sent 27-year old reliever James Reeves to the Padres. I know you are jumping up and down with excitement as you are reading this….

After I finished jumping for joy and read the details it’s weird that the Yankees would trade for him at all. Allen was just designated for assignment so the Padres could make room on the roster for Ha-Seong Kim who they just signed from South Korea. I’m really scratching my head as to why the Yankees TRADED for him. We could’ve waited to claim him off waivers without having to give Reeves at all. Not that Reeves was a very valuable piece for us BUT Allen’s production was so replaceable that the Yankees could’ve acquired a similar player with a league minimum free agent signing….so why TRADE? 

Pointless to go on about that I suppose, but this does mean bad news for Brett Gardner.  If you were hopeful to see him back in pinstripes for 2021 this likely ends his Yankee career. His leadership is going to be missed. It will be hard to not see him in the dugout after 13 seasons but the Yankees went younger and cheaper for the backup outfielder. I guess the bonus here is he is a switch hitter but I guess we are stockpiling outfielders again! I guess he can help fill in when injury plagued Aaron Judge or Aaron Hicks go back on the disabled list. We know that is most likely a WHEN it happens not IF unfortunately.

It’s nice to see that the Yankees addressed an area of no need and dismissed Gardner at the same time. That’s multi-tasking for you, Cashman! Now, can you stop playing this stupid game of chicken with DJ LeMahieu and stop ignoring our pitching needs?

That would be just great…

    NoCashman is following the mediocre tradition of his and Hal’s whole tenure. It is hard to watch a team that spends money on trash and then claims they “have no room” for baseball players year after year.
