Cashman Still Hot on Bubba Crosby
Friday, December 02, 2005
"Right now, it's Bubba Crosby. If something makes sense that's better than that, we'll pursue it." - - Cashman

For reasons undecipherable to Yankees fans around the globe, the Yankees seem to be dead set on using Bubba in centerfield. Mattingly in particular is a big supporter of Bubba and has said several times that he feels the kid has raw talent that should be used. Personally, I don’t despise Bubba – I just don’t want him playing centerfield on my team every day. Pinch-running in the ninth inning is fine; four at-bats per game is not. I strongly believe that there are other players that could get the job done far better than Bubba could, and without nearly killing Shef in the outfield.

The winter meetings are coming up and trade options will surely be discussed. The problem that Cashman is seeing - - and that most of us are seeing - - is that no matter how badly we want someone to come in and play outfield for us, we just don’t have much collateral to use as trade bait. Every option that I come up with is riddled with problems.

Small, Chacon, Cano: Cashman is – thankfully – VERY hesitant to trade these guys, and rightly so. To me, these players are the future of the Yankees. They are young, talented, eager, motivated….everything the Yankees organization has been lacking. To trade them would be to shoot ourselves in the foot.

Prospects: While we definitely have a lot of talented prospects, do we really want to trade away our young gold mine? And also, would we be able to get a top outfielder for prospects? Probably not.

Bubba Himself?: Not sure what we could get for him, but maybe we could tack on some cash and a prospect and pick up a pricey contract of a bigger name outfielder.
