Good morning folks, hope you’re all doing well. Today the team is taking a deep look at the state of the org, beginning with Peter dissecting how Brian Cashman’s rigid stances have acted like a double-edged sword for the Yankees. Dan looks into the impact that a delayed start for the minor league affiliates from Double-A Somerset and below will bring, and Jake puts a lens on exactly how much the Yankees are breaking their backs to save by avoiding the luxury tax — spoiler alert, it isn’t much.

Fun Questions

1. How much of the Yankees’ hardball stance this offseason do you attribute to Cashman, and how much to Hal Steinbrenner?

2. Who do you think has a brighter future — Deivi García or Clarke Schmidt?
