The New York Yankees have some financial issues, and it's Brian Cashman's job to deal with these issues.
What are the Yankees to do with their your young stud pitcher Ivan Nova?
Brian Cashman has some moves to make this offseason, and here are five of them.
Ivan Nova is the future when it comes to pitching for the New York Yankees.
I love CC Sabathia, but he's already 31 years old.
SuperNova is only 24 years old and already has 15 wins this season alone.
Ivan will be Yankees No. 2 pitcher if he keeps this up, and he has the chance to secure himself a solid postseason spot if he can put up another win or two.
Jesus Montero is finally in the big leagues, and it's time for him to stay.
In 2011 alone, Montero has three HRs, six RBI to go along with a .286 batting average.
While it's obviously a small sample size with only 12 games placed, this kid can hit.
Montero has a legitimate shot of DHing in the playoffs over a certain someone...
Jorge Posada's time to go is now.
Let's take a look at Posada's stat line for 2011: 13 HRs, 40 RBI and a .238 batting average.
Those numbers don't exactly scream DH to you.
Posada doesn't strike David Ortiz fear into any pitcher, the Yankees don't need him as a catcher with Russell Martin there and Jesus Montero is primed to take his DH spot in the playoffs.
The way things look, there's no need for Jorge, and Cashman needs to rid the Yankees of him during the offseason.
If CC Sabathia doesn't opt out and Ivan Nova keeps pace, the Yankees are going to need a reliable No. 3 pitcher going forward.
Freddy Garcia has been great this year, but he's not getting any younger (already 35 years old).
I don't trust Bartolo Colon with his old age (38 years old) and and 8-9 record, but his 1.25 WHIP gives him a little leeway
Mr. 5-5, 6.00 ERA, back spasming, young Phil Hughes (25 years old) hasn't been exactly the model of consistency either.
Brian Cashman needs to search the entire league for an young, upcoming pitcher he can side to go alongside Nova.
A.J. Burnett isn't a starting pitcher in the MLB. I don't care if he's currently listed as one, that's a bad joke.
Seriously, how're you 10-11 on the New York Yankees? Are you kidding me?
The Yankees are currently ranked second in the ENTIRE league in runs.
Finding wins should be easy for Burnett, but the Yankee hitters don't trust him.
They know when Burnett hits the mound, they have to produce runs to win the game.
The Yankees have a few options here. They could eat Burnett's contract, attempt to pull off some sort of trade or push him to the back of the bullpen.
