Billy Bean, George Steinbrenner, Yankees discussed on Effectively Wild: A FanGraphs Baseball Podcast

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

George Steinbrenner and he seems to have kind of consolidated his power. So between that and I mean, you know, Billy bean with as could Billy beedon. He's not the GM technically, but could he get fired? Could Brian sapient get fired? I mean, these guys have been in their roles for decades and I think it might take not even a scandal because Cashman's had a kindle to read. He's been in the tabloids for various stories and hasn't seem to affect his job security. I think it might just take an ownership change for these guys to. To get displaced at this point.

What if teams traded a rental player but was sent back in return was decided based on how the team performed the rest of the season, the Abass package that the selling team gets no matter what, but the package gets a little better as the team progresses in the season.
