catch my drift , the Yankees had alot of all or nothing guys and you're not going to win like that point black period. We need some baseball fundamentals put into this lineup IE. Man on 1st and 2nd drop a bunt advance the runner over.
IMO thats how you win and stay away form HUGE slumps
Future lineup...in The Show
RF Giancarlo Stanton
LF J Upton
DH Big Papi
i still like my line up
minor leaguer LF(competition at spring training)
Yankees Offseason Wishlist
1. Explore trades to unload big contracts ( )
2. Resign Robertson ( )
3. Acquire a 2nd or 3rd basemen( )
4. Explore deals/free agency to get a young SS ( )
5. Take a page out of the Royals book and make a deep bullpen ( )
The Yankees need more than King Felix, they need A-Rod Out, Swisher out, A. Jones out, Chavez out, Freddie Garcia out, Ichiro out, Derek Low out.
SS Jeter (Asdrubal Cabrera "Cleveland")
3B Chase Headley (Chris Johnson "D'Backs")
LF Carlos Gonzalez
CF Curtis Granderson
RF Justin Upton (Jay Bruce "Reds") (Jason Heyward "Braves) good arm
C Willin Rosario (Rockies)
SP CC Sabathia
SP King Felix
SP Hiroki Kuroda
SP Andy Pettitte
SP Michael Pineda
LR Phil Hughes
LR David Phelps
LR Cody Eppley
LR Clay Rapada
LR Boone Logan
ST Francisco Rodriguez
ST David Robertson
Closer Mariano Rivera
2. Cargo? He's horrible away from home. We don't have the pieces to get him
3. The rest? I dont even wanna get into detail. Are farm is thin as is.
Freakin fantasy land. This isnt MLB the show.
getting those type of guys doesnt guarantee they will continue to be that way at yankee stadium, Teix and giambi used to be avg hitters that used the field along with power then they turned into pull happy sluggers
granderson wasnt the same hitter before he cme to the yankees
so this idea that what the yankees need to do is bring less power hitters and get guys that hit for avg, gap to gap thinking they will translate the same here is i believe wrong unless they are right handed hitters that hit the other way like Jeter arod and montero
David Ortiz in pinstripes at DH is a priority this offseason. It must be done
EDIT - Boston and Ortiz finalizing a 2 year 25 M dollar deal

One- Let swish go
bring Kuroda back, Ichrio back.
Fully healthy Gardner next year, all speed outfield. Bring up some kids. Hope Andy decides to come back, bring Moe back. Boom 95 win team again. We have to have some kid hitters worth bringing up.
3 time sim league Champion
I want no part of Lohse on this team
