In response to ThatWasMe's comment:
The Yankees are cheap because they didn't give Soriano a 2 year deal worth 28m to close when they have Mariano?
What other team in the game would do the same?
And cheap because they didn't think Nick Swisher was worth 14m a year for 4 more years.
What am I missing here?
I could make an argument where they should've spent more money and did not, where GS would have but those aren't two good examples.
Next season the Yankees could have three homegrown catchers on the roster Cervelli, Romine and Sanchez and why Martin would not get more than 1 year this year.
Granderson and Tex are both injured no way anyone could have forseen either accident.
The Yankees like every other organization have to suck it up and use what they have in their system or do what are they are doing scanning the waiver wire.
Shopping young talent for a temporary fix is dumb and always comes back to bite.
I can't wait for opening day and baseball to begin.
The Yankees will deal with their problems just like the Sox will deal with the loss of Papi's production from their the line-up.
Like the Dodgers will deal with Greinke's creaky elbow.
This is all part of the game.
"the yankees are cheap because they didn't give Soriano a 2 year deal worth 28m......"
What did they give Soriano a few years back when they still had Mo closing?
You make no sense Pop's.
I don't know why I respond to your inane ramblings.
You were calling the Yankees cheap when they had Mo closing and Soriano setting up.
The Yankees are paying Mariano Rivera 10m to close for them in 2013.
Why would they ever give Soriano 14m per which he got from the Nats to be Mariano's set-up?
And the Yankees would have had to out bid the Nats to get him meaning Soriano have gotten much more than the 24m he is getting.
What other team in baseball would pay 24mil per year their set-up guy and closer?
Name just one.
