Yankees Said to be Interested in Asdrubal Cabrera a Year Too Late

This would be just the kind of dumb shit move that Brian Cashman would make, wouldn’t it? Excuse my language and excuse my bluntness but this rumor has me heated. The New York Yankees are reportedly interested in shortstop/second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera. Of course the team reiterated that their budget is stretched about as thin as it’s going to get so a deal could be unlikely but the interest is there nonetheless.

So let me get this straight. You want to take an older, more expensive switch-hitting version of Robert Refsnyder and sign him to say a one or two year deal on the cheap and once again block and demoralize Refsnyder himself? And for what? Average offense, average defense and a switch hitter to balance out a lineup that will continue to either strikeout or hit a home run, nothing more.

I don’t get it. I don’t. These better be just rumors and we better not be bracing ourselves for another Stephen Drew at second base next season. I can’t even right now. I’ll flip. I’ll lose it. Cashman, don’t do it. I mean it, don’t!
