    The Yankees will be better next year (ever so slightly) but they've done nothing (and you can argue even hurt) their long term situation. 

    [/QUOTE]


    No ARod

    An Older Jeter

    No Cano

    Tex should be back

    McCann helps a ton

    Granderson gone

    Ichiro a year older

    Wells pretty much toast

    Soriano won't repeat last year's feat

    No Overbay and Haefner

    CC coming off a terrible season - downward trend

    Kuroda can't repeat that

    Pineada hasn't pitched in years

    PEDitte gonzo

    No Rivera and Roberston hasn't had success closing


    Ellsbury is a big plus

    So you see, all Cashman knows to do is to sign big name FA's - he overpaid but scored w/ 2

    Look at this team - how can they possibly be better?  they won't win 80 games unless they steal some serious pitching

    yankee fans who belittled him for years will have to see Jake's mug on every YES promo for the next 7 years.  That's almost as good as winning yet another WS while the yankees didn't make the playoffs with a $230 mil payroll where 1 in every 3 teams make the playoffs these days couple with the Arod Cheating Scandal coupled w/ PEDitte and Rivera retiring  - ALMOST!

    [/QUOTE] i don't believe anyone here belittled Ellsbury...one thing for sure..we were a LOT more supportive of him than some Sox fans..

    First, I know plenty of yankee fans who belittled him.  Not to mention the constant rants that Brett is better

     

    Second, I have always been a big fan of Ellsbury

    Anyways, what I said is true - yankee fans who hated him will get to be hypocrites once again ala Damon..............

    Is Soriano 37, Gardner 30, Wells 35  and Ichiro 40 good enough????

    They will be better assuming they have a cleaner bill of health, and I'm also certain they will make some more moves before the season begins.  When I say better...I thinking a game or two.  They still might not be a playoff team, they definitely won't win the division.

    They should get something much better than they got last year behind the plate, at first, at third, and in the outfield as well.  

    Yes they are still heavily relying upon a older group of guys that have higher risk injuries and many are in decline, for example I assume they should get something out of Teixeira but I wouldn't be surprised if he gives them nothing next year.

    Listen I want the Yankees to stink as much as the next man, but they are obviously throwing money at the problem.  This will make them slightly better next year, but they are continuing to do it on the back of their future.....and to be completely honest I enjoy seeing a slower death than a short one. 

    They are an organization in complete denial.

    You guys act like the Yankees didn't field a half triple A half AARP team last year either.  If anything they overachieved next year.  So perhaps this is a good truce, the Yankees might be better this year and have the same record, or even win less games.  But If Ellsbury or McCann goes on the D.L.......that would be funny.

    I am shocked Cano is not in New York.  I cannot believe how badly the Mariners overpaid him.  Great player, but for that much?  And the Yanks were outbid for their own FA?  Hell must've frozen over.

    with McCann in....the Yankees have a VERY good trade chip in Gary Sanchez.  Brett Gardner is expandable as well.   They obviously don't have anywhere near the chips we have, but they are perfectly capable of pulling off some moves.  

    And the Yankees may very likely just say "screw the luxury cap" and spend whatever it takes.

    Re: Who is the Face of the Yankees?

    and you have to admit, the Yankees and Cashman have always been able to pull off a trade or two that looks like a steal, especially after their prospects prove they were nothing but overhyped to begin with.  Whither Banuelos and that other great up and coming pitcher these days?

    What is more interesting to me at this point is whether the Rays deal Price and how they fill out their offense, what the Orioles do to plug up some of the holes in their team (Feldman gone, McLouth gone, Roberts on the decline).  And is Toronto going to sell or try to add a piece or two?  They were odds on favorites in February last year.  Yankees could be second best club in ALE, assuming Sox stay the best.  Or, they could just as easily be the worst.

    They will buy the next face of the franchise and might have already. 

    If Pineda can get healthy, he can be a good start.  He was purchased, but young enough at 24 to market.  McCann will be marketed heavily with his five year deal and I hate to say it... but Ellsbury is signed for 7 years and women dig him.  If sex sells... my money would be on Ells for them.

    Pineda was trading for Jesus "Babe Ruth" Montero - another great yankee prospect like Chamberlain......

    It will be Ellbsury for 7 years and he will be all over YES and yankee fans will have to root for  a man they hated...I wish PEDitte was there one more year b/c he hates Ellsbury......

                                    Listen to Andrew on this one. JE will be the new "Face of the Franchise" in the Bronx. He fits the image the Yanks are looking for . They're trying to cleanup the franchise. With Jeter on the downside they'd like to smooth Ells in to the big image slot that will open with his departure.  A couple of years ago an  AD-TRAK executive made a comment about Jeter signature apparel revenues that went something like," Jeter is paying the Yanks to play for him". I took it to mean that the ad revenue that Jeter created was enough to offset the contract money he was receiving then. They think the next guy to be able to do that for them is JE. They could be right.

    That's my whole point.  Yankees fans demeaned Ellsbury for years and how he's their poster-boy.  No way most Sox fans would ever embrace Cano if he came to Boston; none.  That's another key difference between us and them.
