In response to pinstripezac35's comment:
Well considering the money spent...Hankenstein will demand no less!
they sure did spend
but some might not know that right now
odds favor their payroll being less than last yr (arod certainly a big part of it )
The line-up will put up lots of runs...but like Jete says, it will come down to their pitching.
true very true
we will C what it's worth
but tanaka was their #1 target and they got him
I think they'll miss Rivera bigtime!
can't argue with that
I mean plenty of teams have won without mo
but they didn't replace robertson either
Question for Yankee fans...you spend all that money on free agents but don't bring back your 2B who was born to be a Yankee and play in that stadium...beats me!!
I know you have been away for a while but
did U miss the part where seattle gave him 90 mill more
some think it was that
persoanllay I think it was because
they feared those RSP's coming back
Question for RSN...you make all that money on WS but don't bring back your
lead off / CF who was born to be a sox and play in the fens ...beats me!!
Because are front office is a little bit more committed to staying under the luxury tax. And when you have one of your top prospects that is (or at least very close to) MLB ready waiting in the wings.....you let the 20+ million injury prone 30 year old walk.
That model is much much much much more common than what the Yankees do and Boston is able to do because they have something NY does not, Depth and a minor league system.
