    Shouldn’t they be sellers now?

      Hal, Hank, Trost and Levine would never permit that.

      Shame. With so many pending free agents on the roster, now is the time to cash them in for some prospects.

      I don’t think anyone disagrees, except for the team’s owner and senior management.

      Wouldn’t a strong GM lobby to get them to see the light and do the right thing?

      A GM could be strong and still not get his bosses to budge.

      Actually, they should’ve made that decision awhile ago, in order to sound out the market in depth.

      But the team’s ownership philosophy/business plan doesn’t allow for it, so that’s that.

      And Cashman could never implement that. The perfect recipe for mediocrity for years to come.

      Assertion without evidence, especially considering the fact that the Yankees have never been sellers before, even when they should’ve been in 2008.

      The Yanks are 3.5 games out of the 2nd wild card. I doubt they’d be sellers now.

      Exactly. While their chances may not be great, being a seller would send a bad message to the fans. More than anything, Hal doesn’t want an empty stadium for the last two months of the season.

      It may happen anyway.
