    Re: Yankees Rotation is a DISASTER

    Y eah, glad we got a great rotation and  the Yankee's suks. And its a game of feet . 12 feet Thats how far off the plate Buck was on his 8 walks.. His delivery is spasticand then he looks athe mound like someone moved the dirt where his foot is supposed to land.  They should break down and hire a good high school pitching coach

    And don't look now, but I'm still not convinced that their much-ballyhooed lineup is going to be as epically awesome as many have insisted it will  be.

     

    McCann is struggling...Jeter, Beltran, and Soriano are showing their age...Solarte is coming back down to earth...Roberts is brutal. Ellsbury and Tex are getting it done, but this is a team with a lot of holes (which is what I said this winter when some of the more faint-hearted Red Sox posters were insisting that Ben had screwed the pooch by not making major moves and we all should be trembling at the sight of the Yankees' mighty free agent spending).

     

    One ill-timed injury and New York's year could start resembling 2013 a lot quicker than anyone expected.

    Update to this post:

     

    Teixeira .867 OPS

    Solartte .830 (still outperforming his career minor league OPS by about .100 points)

    So far so good.

    Ellsbury .726

    Gardner .724

    ^Eh.

    Beltran .715

    Johnson .693

    McCann .675

    Roberts .669

    (Getting into Sizemore-ish territory now)

    Soriano .645

    Jeter .634

     

     

    The big-spending Yanks are hitting .255/.317/.386 as a team compared to the cheapo, complacent, Ellsbury-missing Red Sox at .246/.329/.376, and have 2.5 games on them currently.

    That's not to say the Red Sox are in a good place, because they're not...but the people who spent the offseason claiming the Sox ownership was cheap or didn't care about winning because they didn't break the bank on Ellsbury or surrender a draft pick for someone like Beltran or McCann have got some 'splainin to do. The Yanks went on a spending spree and have ended up, so far, with a lineup almost as terrible as ours, if not worse.

    --Uhh, those numbers don't show it to be "worse".


    I didn't say they were worse, but let's take a look...


    C McCann vs. Pierzynski - advantage Sox, at least so far
    1B Teixeira vs. Napoli - advantage Yankees, though possibly not by as much as people think once Naps is healthy again
    2B Roberts vs. Pedroia - advantage Sox, not close even with Pedroia having a down year
    SS Jeter vs. Bogaerts - huge advantage Sox. Put Drew there instead and it's still a plus for Boston.
    3B Solarte vs. miscellaneous - advantage Yanks so far, but probably not going forward with Bogaerts there (see above)
    LF Gardner vs. Gomes/Sizemore/etc - advantage Yankees
    CF Ellsbury vs. Bradley - advantage Yankees
    RF Beltran/Suzuki/Soriano vs. Victorino/miscellaneous - advantage Yankees, but not by nearly as much as you would think
    DH Soriano vs. Ortiz - hahahaha


    Looks like a toss-up to me at best. Credit to the Yankees for having a stronger outfield (not saying much at this point), but it is still pretty terrible, and the rest of the lineup looks far from certain.

    If the Yankees stay in contention, look for them to acquire one of the top available starters. Price, Lee or Samardzija.  Possibly Shields. Their farm system may not be great, but I'm sure they have at least a couple of good prospects to use in a trade. We know they have the money.

    that said if anyone, shields is probably the most likely

    I doubt the Rays would even consider trading Price, within the Division, gale.

    Yeah. Too bad the Red Sox don't have the kayoonees to do anything about it. There they are, flying like a slow moving zeppelin with broadside presented, and here we are with no ammo.

    Cough up some nice prospects for him, please.

    Price was tough against the Sox, early in his career, not so much lately.
