BJ Upton gets 5 years 75 million. Anyone think Swisher will get something near that?
I only like ichiro as a 4th outfielder.
Doesn't walk. Hardly ever. He's a bottom of the order hitter now.
I'd like to know where we are going to get a 2 hole high OBP guy from to replace swisher. Because it isn't Ichiro.
Also hughes is a FA after this year.
So next years rotation is CC, Nova, Phelps. As of right now.
I said I'd like to know where the Yankees plan on getting a high OBP guy for the two hole.
Also who know's who will be available via Trade? Phelps could turn into a stud? Pineda COULD although UNLIKELY come back.
Oh you can also add in, What about Granderson? Next year our only actual Outfielder currently will be Gardner.
Cano at 2B? What to do with him? Sign him? Try to trade him now? Will adams be ready?
There's a lot more issues then just the starting rotation or RF.
Its not even funnny how many questions the team has/will have going into the 2014 season.
Basically they will be the in same situation as this offseason, except they won't be able to overpay for vets on one year deals. All these one year deals are fine as a stopgap type deal but they don't really help with the 2014 budget as much as the team likes to keep saying.
If anything I would think the team would want some more actual certainty when going into a strict budget year so that they don't have as many holes to fill. Who knows, maybe that will come in the form of a trade this offseason. But I doubt it.
I like to think the team has a plan on how they plan to do all this and still compete but I sometimes doubt that too.
