In response to southpaw777's comment:
they overspent on OF'ers, C, and a starter with no MLB exp.
Now, they might all do well, but they lack depth in just about every area. A couple big injuries and it could get ugly. That new kid at SS/3b is looking pretty good though.
No getting a bonafied closer had to be one of the dumbest non movesIMHO. DRob had little exp. as a closer and Im not sure from what I saw that I would have trusted him with the job without having a BU plan, ie; Edward Mujica incase Koji has issues.
Im a big fan of having a lot of depth. Its a long season and injuries WILL happen and you have to be prepared forit. Im not sure the NYY are.
have not read anyone but U knocking the Mccann signing
knocking them 4 not replacing Drob has some merit
but DRob is as qualifed as any new closer
Im not knocking the signing itself zac. If you read, I said they OVERPAID by a lot for these guys and didnt spend some $$ where they needed too, IMO. McCann and Ells are solid players without a doubt, but not nearly worth what they got.
Oh, and At least Mujica had 30+ saves last year and is our back up in case something happens to Koji, our top closer...That would be considered qualified to be a closer, and hes still our BU plan. Who do you have? Kelly? now that is an LOL...good luck with that.
