The Yanks had their “organizational meetings” down in Tampa this week, and have apparently put together a considerable shopping list: if you’ve got a live arm and a pulse, you’re on Brian Cashman’s radar. Sabathia, Shields, Peavy, Burnett, Lowe, in addition to the aging NY vets Pettitte and Moose and (why not?) Brett Favre. Teixeira is also a priority target, perhaps priority target #1. The most significant piece of news to emerge: the organization intends to return Joba to the rotation, as they have always planned. This is great news for all of us sabermetrically minded fans, but may not sit well with some others, including Jorge Posada, who has suggested Joba should remain in the pen for health reasons. What’s interesting to me about this is that the Joba decision was presented to the media as one “universally agreed” to by everyone in attendance, a group that included Cash, the Steinbrenners, the Stick, Reggie Jackson, and Tino Martinez. I’m not sure why Reggie should be included in such discussions, aside from legend status; Tino is another story. Smart and a bit ruthless as a player, he has demonstrated some keen insight as an analyst. We all know he has a long-term friendship with Posada, so it’s noteworthy, at least to me, that he emerges from these discussions joining the consensus to keep Joba a starter. Tino: definitely a man to keep an eye on within the organization, or perhaps outside of it.
