    If this was 2003, those would be good moves. 

    And they've already missed out on Jim Thome and been rebuffed for Bobby Abreu.  Can Moises Alou be far behind?

    Given the Yanks luck at reclaimation projects recently, they probably both will hit 20 homers, hit .300+ and remain healthy the entire year.Yell

    Sounds like what many of us felt when they signed Colon and Garcia last year. I hope these signings don't work out quite as well for them.

    Good moves on the Yanks part, both are pro's that are tailor made for Yankee stadium. Chavez if he can stay on the field should give them about what he did last year (allow Arod to sit against tough righties). Ibanez if he get's 500 at bats as the primary DH will probably finish the year in the 20 homer/75 rbi range and can play a little left and 1B too...

    They are both still very good hitters although Ibanez had a tough year last season.  Injuries aside, when you need a hit, or someone to cover key injuries they will be nice to have.

    I really don't know why Freddy Garcia, coming off a 12-6 4.64ERA season with 157IP was considered a "reclamation project."

    I see your point, but maybe it was because he only signed for $1M and he had 58, 15, and 56 IP the previous 3 seasons beforehand. Plus, his 1.376 WHIP in 2010 was about .080 higher than his career norm.

    Let's see how 2012 goes for him.

    IMO, the Yankees are smoking something signing Ibanez. The obsession with older (and over the hill) players is getting a little much. If you're going to going to go that route, at least get a gamer like Damon; it's no fluke the Yankees won the WS with him on the team, for starters, recall his double stolen base in Game 5. Admittedly, he completely lost the ability to play the field. The difference is everyone likes to pretend Ibanez can play defense a little; he can't, and neither can he hit anymore; a big comedown from Montero.

    Slice it anyway you want to; the Yankees have a better team than the Sox do - even on paper.

    On paper the Phillies had the best team in baseball last year, and in ST, their rotation was being hailed as the "greatest of all time." 

    They didn't even win a playoff series, which goes to show how much game is played on paper...

    True, but I think I'd rather have a better team on paper going into ST than a worse one.

    Why is this thread still here? Seems like positive posts about the Yankees as opposed to realistic or negative ones can remain here. Funny, that's what I've always maintained. Guess I've finally been proven right on that account.

    Why are you still here, KST. Just about everyone knows you are another Pike alter-ego, except apparently for jesseyeric and moon. Even the old 
    "girlie cool " quote you had posted as yor sig was obviously something a guy would post trying to convince people he was a female.  Funny that you removed it, Pike.  Why don't you just stop the abuse, pike. We are all sick of it...

    I don't think this proves anything Kim. Stop trying to analyze everything that happens. Don't know why Moon's thread was removed, but agree that it shouldn't have been.

    Steven - as much as I like Damon, Ibanez is the better signing because he can go into the field. Damon has zero ability to put the glove on anymore. It is a matter of flexibility.

    I didn't understand why that thread was removed either; it was benign, and a playful bash. Maybe they were afraid it would escalate.
