In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment:
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.
An Older Jeter
Tex should be back
McCann helps a ton
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
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
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.
