Even though the team has improved as of late (yay regression!) it's becoming increasingly apparent that this team doesn't have enough sustained big league pitching to engender much in the way of a winning streak in order to make themselves relevant in any kind of post season activities this year. At least based on the eye test and the daunting task of having to bootstrap ourselves out of the basement of the NL West ahead of not only the loathed Dodgers, but also past the Rockies and Giants (much less the Padres who always seem to make our lives a challenge).
With the Yankees now losing Sabathia for "at least" six weeks and their need for a heir apparent to he who shall be feted, is now the time to bundle up our remainders to the Yankees and raid the upper echelons of their farm system? This works under the assumption that the Yankees have a farm system worth raiding mind you....NY has to compete and they have to compete every year and it doesn't appear that they have an heir apparent waiting in the wings for Jeter, although since you're the Yankees, you can just buy whoever becomes available. Cashman has shown the idea of trying to be cost conscious as evidenced by letting Cano walk and a relatively cheap slick fielding Gregorious might be just the back up plan in case Jeter's fragility comes back into play and starting pitching that just may need a change of scenery to be successful. So with that in mind....
Is it time to move DiDi and any one of McCarthy, Cahill, or Delgado (or insert other name here or multiples thereof) to a team that has a need in return for a combination of Sanchez, Clarkin or Judge?
Naturally, you can mix and match your own ideas to suit but since we're not going anywhere this year (at least based on the historic numbers that Jim has posted previously), so why not reload. It's not as if the Yankees aren't poised/rumored to make a big splash in the international markets again, as such, they may be willing to not wait on their farm talent, not to say that Cashman is an idiot, but he has other pressures that he has to cope with, i.e. winning now.
