The end of the Yankees (for several years)?
« Topic Start: October 19, 2012, 03:34:41 PM »
New York papers have been full of Yankee disintegration. I could link to them, but they are so hard to miss, everywhere.

- Jeter is 38 or 39. If he plays next year, I expect that will be the last season
- Petitte is their second-best starter, and he's about 40. Came out of retirement...does he want the bother of staying in shape during the off-season to pitch another year?
- Mo Rivera wants to pitch one more year. I expect he will. Jeter and Mo.

- ARod is expected to be gone, no matter what the cost. And soon. The benchings were a waving flag. Papers noticed that ARod went to the bench and tried to pick up a blonde woman fan. That did not make him a hereo.

- Swisher flopped, and he's not so young

- Granderson and Tex will be 32 or 33 next season.

- Cano and Gardner were the only guys under 30, and Gardner was hurt.

- The Yankees have no starters after Sabathia (and the hope that Andy returns)

- The farm system is empty.

- Jeter's replacement is about 140 pounds...no the typical Yankee slugger.

I think the Yankees cannot sign enough free agents to replace all these guys. They haven't been a bad team since about '95, but this could be the start of some serious pain.

i could have sworn the won the most games in the AL this past season.

They will still go into next year with a pretty good lineup, and their rotation isn't bad with CC, Nova, Hughes, and Kuroda.  They also still have Betances and Banuelos in the minors (who are good trade chips even though they struggled this past year.  They have a hell of a lot of cash to go out and get a Dan Haren, Mike Napoli, or that guy in Texas who would instantly revitalize their lineup.

A 2013 lineup of:
Jeter
Ichiro
Cano
Tex
Hamilton
Granderson
Martin
A-Rod
Napoli

with staff of CC, Nova, Haren, Kuroda, and Hughes is going to be a contender.

Bowden was proposing a Granderson for Rendon swap.  NO F-ING WAY!

I'd take Granderson here but not for any serious prospect.  He'd be a one year rental until Goodwin is ready to take over.
