"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

“Bottom line is, there was a price to pay for waiting for Cliff Lee. Now, part of that price is definitely going to be a loss of previous opportunities that were existing,” Cashman said Tuesday. The Yankees general manager added that in addition to a dearth of pitching talent now available on the market, lefty Andy Pettitte is “leaning toward retirement,” and “not officially in play.”

“There’s no official announcement that (Pettitte’s) retired. We’re obviously focused on those players in the free-agent market and trade market. Andy currently is not one of those guys,” Cashman said. “If he chooses to be, obviously he knows we’d love to talk to him.”

by the way, what big opportunities did Cashman miss out on waiting for Lee?

[2] i suppose he could have signed an outfielder and traded gardner or granderson for pitching.

1) Curses! You beat me on the Beat of the Day!

Nice choice.

[3] What pitching, Randy Wolf? Ted Lilly? That's all anyone is willing to give for those two. If the Yanks really are Richie Rich, then all the other teams are trying to fleece them at any given moment.

[2] Yup. Cliff Lee not be the only.

[2] It's possible to have more than one iron in the fire. Cashman didn't miss out on anything.

Remember how the Mets were supposed to be world beaters after picking up Brett Saberhagen, Bobby Bonilla and Eddie Murray, among others?
