I'm holding back on going on a rant about this being the lead on Sportscenter.

The Yankees are holding a meeting with all of their high-ranking officials about what to do with their 38-37 team. That being said, will they have a knee-jerk reaction and fire Mel Stottlmeyer and/or make a trade comprable to the Raul Mondesi deal of a few years back? Or will they stay pat?

Your thoughts. I'm sure fenway will have some interesting nuggets.

Who really cares? I don't give a crap what they do or don't do. They are the Yankees and they put themselves in this mess with their free spending ways. Oh well...

I think the Yankees are about to enter the pre-Constaza days of the 80's and 90's. Remember when Tim Leary was in their rotation, eew.

I remember Stump Merrill as their manager,and such big names as
Jesse Barfield,Andy Hawkins,Steve Balboni and of course,Steve Sax,
who the White Sox were so desperate for after the 1991 season,
they traded a young Bob Wickman and Melido Perez to get him.:D:

Oh yeah,I almost forgot: 10 years of Dave Winfield (1980-1990).

I cares because they might decide whether to get rid of some people. They can't hold onto all this payroll and continue losing so this might be time to pick some of their guys up...not that I want any of them besides the ones they probably won't part with, like Jeter...THAT would be awesome.

I think they'll be fine, I haven't followed real closely, but the pitching seems to the issue, and I think Mel might be in trouble. There's always exceptions, but most of the good Yankee pitchers have seemed to have been established somewhere else already. Contreras hasn't been everyone's favorite player here, but he's had great games, and a solid season, especially compared to his NYY days where it seemed like everyone but his pitching coach knew he was tipping pitches. Also, a guy like Jaret Wright has a great year last year, and gets lit up before getting hurt. Pavano has been average compared to a Cy Young candidate last year. I'm not saying it's all Mel's fault because I know nothing about him and am no where near the team or clubhouse, but it's a nice place to point the finger, especially when "drastic" times call for some changes.

Well obviously the original poster, this is the talking baseball forum!

If the Amazin's bullpen didn't blow it last night, Torre would have been looking for a job today. It wouldn't surprise me if Torre and Bernie Williams are let go within the week.

What's wrong with Dave Winfield? He was a great player.

I hope they trade A-rod or something drastic like that. Try to get a whole new pitching staff by dumping a good player. maybe package A-rod and Giambi with something. That would be awesome.

Giambi deserves to be exiled to Siberia. I'm still waiting to see what happens if he finds himself playing first base when the Sox are in town, and Frank singles or walks.

I don't know what on earth this summit will do. The farm system is bare, trade options limited because of bloated contracts.

Their biggest problem right now is they have to do something today, and most MLB teams are willing to wait another month to protect the live gate.

What they'll do is fairly simple.

Offer SF Wang+Cano for Schmidt+Durham+Alfonzo. Something like that where they basicaly trade mediocre prospects for a good palyers and a lot of dead salary weight. It's about all they can do outside of replacing some coaches.

They absolutely have to rid themselves of Bernie Williams in the field. Center Fielder is their #1 objective. I'm kinda wondering if Seattle can be duped into some kind of Deal for Reed or possibly Ichiro? This is probably absurd, but the Yankees need a player like either of them out there in the field.

Mariners make too much with TV-Radio in Japan to even think about moving Ichiro

If he's read this, I'm sure jeremy is creaming himself thinking about Reed's future plaque in monument park.

No way they get Reed or Ichiro, but they could probably land Randy Winn.

This summit will resemble the emergency meeting of a company going into the toilet. Boss is freaking out and wants heads to roll. Yes men scurring about crashing into each other shouting "Yes Boss! Yes Boss!" while planting daggers in each other's backs. Ship continues to take on water. Boss blows up and fires people. Yadda Yadda Die Yankees Die. :cool:

I meant no slight to the poster of this thread, but I was just saying that me, personally, could care less what meetings will or won't take place. It's just like every other week I hear on SC that "The Boss" is having a meeting to rev up his players, etc. The reason they are in the mess that they are, in my opinion, relates to the fact there are so many superstars, and it's hard for them to gel. WEll, that AND the pitching. So, my apologies to the poster, I wasn't slighting the thread, as I didn't use the infamous Who Cares tag. I'm just happy to see the Yankees in disarray, and wondering what is wrong.

The speculation is that Gene Michael is going to resume at least a 'co-G.M.' duties with Brian Cashman. That those two would prefer to hang on to whatever talent remains in the minor league system but that they would make a deal for Mark Kotsay.

Naturally the owner can over rule any of this but that appears to be the philosophy for the rest of the season, at least if Michael is elevated.
