“I’m very comfortable with the decision we made back with the Santana situation,” he said. “Right now, we’ve got Sabathia where the Santana money is, I’ve got a center fielder in Melky, I’ve got Phil Hughes performing for us, and I’ve got Swisher in right, which Jeffrey Marquez was in the deal to help me get.
Death Sentence “So right now, I believe the organization is in a better position because of that type of decision-making. I know people still like to debate it. Debate all they want, I think it was the smart and right move, and we’re stronger than we would have been with one player and the money attached to the player without all the extra players we have now.”
The discussion question is very simple: Do you agree with Cashman? I do, but I can see how people might look at the Santana situation and ask if prospect-hugging when the best pitcher in baseball hits the trade market at 27 is entirely prudent. It worked out, but CC could have signed elsewhere and the Yankees would be left empty-handed. Is holding on to young talent always the right move?
