Twitter Poll: James Shields to the Bronx… Yay or Nay?

The New York Yankees fans are jumping off of bridges, running around like chickens with their heads cut off and declaring their never-dying love to their secret crushes in droves right now. The world is coming to an end and the sky is falling after the Yankees got swept by the Toronto Blue Jays inside Yankee Stadium this past weekend. The call for Cashman’s head, the firing of Joe Girardi and the need for a big move are ringing all across the nation and they only got louder when James Shields cleared revocable waivers this week. Earlier today I had my say in whether I thought Shields should be a member of the Yankees but I wanted to give you, everyone reading this, the opportunity to also be heard on a bigger stage. Sounds like the beginning of a Twitter Poll to me.

I’ve had my say so I won’t beat a dead horse here. I think the Yankees are fine and I think they are getting that inevitable cold streak out of the way in early August rather than late September. It’s not always the best team who wins the World Series or their respected leagues pennants, it’s the hottest teams. The San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals were simply hotter than everyone else and rode the Wild Card One Game Playoff games into a hot streak and into the World Series. There is no reason the Yankees couldn’t do that in a Wild Card Game or an ALDS game after winning the division. I don’t think Shields is a necessity and unless it is an absolute salary dump where we give up prospects that I, the self-professed prospect humper, never heard of or care about then I think I have to pass.

Everyone has their own opinions and they are entitled to them, that’s what makes these posts special and the whole social media thing special (most of the time anyway). To be involved in our next Twitter Poll post head on over to the app and give @GreedyStripes a follow. Then be on the lookout for out next Twitter Poll tweet. We will not use your answers without letting you know first.
