It wasn't Cahman's fault that Pineda hurt his arm. Not all of his 2012 moves have paid dividends, but some of his previous moves certainly are. A free agent acquisition, Rafael Soriano, has done a very good job replacing Mariano Rivera. In spite of all the pitching injuries, the Yankee pitching staff has performed decently and even very well at times. Even some of the best GMs in baseball history occasionally made trades that are real clunkers. Cashman has built a team that is for the most part, hard working and diligent.

The Yanks currently have the 2nd best record in the Majors and are 5 games ahead in the AL East. Hindsight has kicked your post squarely in the nuts.

Cashman's moves as GM I would rate better than many of Girardi's as manager. Using as many as five pitchers a game will eventually burn out the relief pitching corps. Too many pitchers used in one game increase the chnces that one of them just might not have it that day and get lit up like a pinball machine. And if a pitcher is throwing a shutout in the eighth inning and still going strong, instead of taking him out because he threw 100 pitches, let him finish the game and give the bullpen a needed rest instead of what Girardi did in one game where he removed Phil Hughes in a 6-0 game and the succeeding relief pitcher allowed four runs necessitating bringing in closer Rafael Soriano to preserve the win instead of allowing him a day of rest.
