    New York Yankees

    Not much of an OP from me, mainly looking for good baseball posters to tell me what they think.

    How do the Yankees look now and where do they go from here? Brett Gardner? A year from free-agency and could still be of trade value for a Doug Fister type starter? Cano? The health of Texiera? The entire pitching staff, no Rivera, what can New York do to be better and close big holes in their pitching staff?

    Ellesbury

    Jeter

    Tex

    Soriano

    McCann

    Suziki

    Nunez?

    3B?

     

    and the starters...

     

    Sabathia

    Pineda 

    Nova

    Phelps

    Huff/Warren

     

    Honestly I am not sure if I should be laughing, I am unimpressed. Cano stays and they can score a lot of runs, but........

    Let's assume they do not re-sign Cano and Elles goes down for most of the season in June with an injury... this team instantly becomes old and slow-footed.

    Yanks have issues. Signing Ellsbury is about the last thing the Yanks needed, they already had Gardner who is a very similar type player. Maybe Yanks know something RS didn't = Ellsbury can pitch?

    They have talent, but no more than a lot of other teams.  Right now, without Cano, they bsically have an IF that played virtually no games last year.

    A nice defensive OF with some speed, that hit very few HRs.

    Their #3 SP missed all of last year, and I don't know who #4/5 is.

    And an excellent setup guy moving into the closer role.

    Will Jay Z start wearing a Mariner's cap if Cano signs  with Seattle? All the other clowns would start wearing them too.

    As much as I'd like to see them lose him, Cano will be back with the yankees, it's just matter of how much and how long. Yankee brass is not going to let a hoped for payroll ceiling get in the way of fielding a winning product.

    Even with all their money I don't know where they are going to get all of the pitching that they need. Most of it would have to be through trades and they don't have many chips.

    Re: New York Yankees

    It is an old team, and every 6+ year deal they sign puts them deeper in the grave for the next decade. Can you imagine if they had given Beltran 3 years?

    ARod - suspended

    Jeter - fragile and old

    Nova - totally unpredictable

    Pineda - still waiting

    Suzuki - shadow of former self

    Soriano - old but can still hit

    Tex - either MVP or Bust depending on his health

    Elles - averages under 140 games a year

    Sabathia - needs to continue to re-invent himself

    They are talking about adding Brandon Phillps who is a clubhouse headache.

    Do they have a closer?

    With the new psoting limit of 20M, that means Tanaka will be available to pretty much any team in MLB. The problem the Yankees will run into with this situation is that now that the posting fee is so low, Tanaka will get a large paycheck with goes against the annual AAV not the other way around.

    Also, ARod may hold things up into Jan/Feb. Its going to get tricky to stay under the LT limit. If they go over, Ellsbury's deal just turned into a 200+M deal with the tax assessed.

    Greetings, Zac,

    I just took a look around and I guess there are more arms available than I thought.

    Do you think Cano will be back with the yanks?

    B4 or after I ate the brownies ;-)

    IDK mike I'd be sursprised not shocked if he wasn't

    at this point I  care more about tanaka

    I'm guessing the new posting system puts the 189 dream to bed

    and yanks continue to improve by FA

     

    speaking of being shocked

    while ells makes any team better  CF wasn't a priority

    so I can't see them making that move if they weren't planing on making other big moves

    I don'y see anyone on the free agent list that will add to the Yankees rotation, in the way that CC did in 2009.

    Ellsbury leaving was a double whammy. We lost him and the yanks got him. I wasn't surprised though. I got the impression he wasn't too happy in Boston or the way he was handled by the medical staff during his various injuries. It was pretty clear that they never had any intention of paying him what he was going to want or giving him the years. I kind of thought he would end up in New York. At least he can't grow facial hair so he won't have to worry about shaving to maintain that cleancut yankee NARC appearance.

    Morning gary, this isn't a knock but going into the offseason and thru ST noone in baseball was exactly raving about the Sox pitching last year, turned out well..that said i agree on the issues part...definitely need to shore up the pitching...as for Ellsbury, i think the deal is too long and the $$ too high...don't particularly feel they needed him, but he's a good player who needs to stay healthy....willing to let the pact get underway and give him a chance...no doubt Yanks still have a ways to go.

    If the Sox can help with getting Kemp off the Dodgers hands perhaps Magic and JayZ can work some Magic.

    The Yankees will always spend whatever it takes to get back on top. That has been very obvious over the years. It is never surprising.

    When the yankees finally pony up the jay-z $$$....any WAR that ellsbury provides compared to last year's CF for the yankees washes out the negative WAR of whomever is closing for them now that Mo is Go. 

    no matter who they bring in as starter you still need someone to pitch the 7th, 8th, and 9th.  they are a 90 win team at best

    Re: New York Yankees

    Here is the reality: New York is the financial capital of the world. New York is the media capital of the world. Except for Hollywood, New York is the entertainment capital of the world. The major sports have their headquarters in New York. I wonder why ?  Very many of the top athletes desire to play in New York. Very few leave there willingly. The Yankees have a huge revenue stream from gate receipts, TV and radio. The Yankees have been more than willing to spend whatever it takes to stay on top. This formula has worked for them, as 27 World Championships will attest. The New York Yankee fans have become quite arrogant about this success. This is why we hate them. This is why many fans around the country hate them. But we cannot deny their success. The reality is that money does indeed talk. The small market, small time Charlies of MLB will only have occasional moments in the sun. The big spending Yankees will always be the team to beat. If you don't realize this, there is a bridge in New York that you might be interested in purchasing. Reality is not always enjoyable for us fans, but it is reality. There is no getting away from it.
