Time To Play The Waiver Game Brian Cashman

Welcome to August baseball. What do I do if I am the GM of the Yankees today? I place Hiroki Kuroda, Brett Gardner, Robinson Cano, Vernon Wells, Ichiro Suzuki, Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, Lyle Overbay, Chris Stewart, Curtis Granderson, Boone Logan, and David Robertson on waivers. Most, if not all, of these men will clear waivers and will be available in trades with anyone. Why do I say this you ask?

We place the aformentioned guys on waivers because this may get out of hand in a hurry with 23 of our 49 games remaining against the three teams we are chasing in the AL East. Those teams, the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles, and Tampa Bay Rays, have played us tough this season and are going to make or break the season and our playoff hopes. Brian Cashman, and you Yankees fans reading this, have to be prepared to blow this team up. In no way do I want to trade anyone listed above, before that even gets started, but it may have to happen in the end.

Brian Cashman has been trying to rebuild the farm system since 2005 and we have not had many impact guys come out of the system since. If Cashman really wants to rebuild the farm a trade of Hiroki Kuroda and Brett Gardner alone rebuilds the farm over night. Add in a David Robertson trade or a Robinson Cano trade and we have one of the best farm systems in all of baseball. As much as I would hate to blow it up, hell let's be honest I refuse to blow it up, it may be done before the August 31st waiver trade deadline.
