    Agree.  Hope ARod comes back. They can have a high paid geriatric section in the clubhouse, walled off from the little people.




    If Arod doesnt get the full suspension of 200+ games, and say its less than 162, What money would count against the LT? Does he sit, say for 150 games without pay or does the $$ still count against the LT?




    if he's suspsened he doesn't get paid and thus it won't count against the LT

    but staying under the LT threshold was pretty much tossed out the window whey the acquired Beltran.  Are the yankees capable of anything other than writing big checks?  God I love Cashman - I hope they give him a lifetime contract!!!

    Not buying the injury excuse. Yes, the Yankees had some injuries, but so did every other team. The Sox lost our best pitcher for months and won a ring with him still not right. We lost our two closers (and found another one); Miller was lost for the season; Morales missed a lot of time; Vic missed time as did Ellsbury and others (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseball/mlb/teams/boston-red-sox/injuries.html). While the NYY injury report is impressive (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/baseball/mlb/teams/new-york-yankees/injuries.html) they simply did not have the organizational depth to survive their injuries and succeed. We did. That is the difference IMO.

    On top of that, they put themselves in a position to have more injuries.  Look at the guys that got injured-

    • Tex-33
    • Jeter-39
    • ARod-37
    • Youk-34, with a long history of injuries

    And they missed almost nothing from their pitching staff.  Granderson was a bad break, but the other guys were older, more prone to injuries, and less likely to return quickly because of age.  They had the highest average age for both hitting and pitching.  Out of 30 teams, no one has an average age of 30, and the NYY were at 31.8.

    And before the NYY come in to complain, I have said that about the RS.  Every year, it seems I am lamenting that TB is healthier than us.  But I know I can't complain because they are starting a lot of prospects.  They were supposed to be healthier than us.
