    If that group peaks, we might be in trouble.
    Toronto could be this year's Baltimore or they could be this year's Miami.

    Are we ever going to do...anything? Excluding Youkilis and our predicted signings of Kuroda, Ichiro, Pettitte and Mariano, what HAVE we done?

    I understand that these predicted signings are practical and necessary, but we haven't really gotten any better. I'm not sure about you guys, but even with our strict budget cuts, I'd still like to see an improved team out there next year, ya know, cause we didn't win or even make it to the world series with last year's roster...

    I'd be fine with signing a Catcher and leaving the OF as is, or signing an OF'er and giving the starting job to Romine. He was hyped up a bit at one point, and I know he was injured, but let's finally see what he can do over a longer period of time.

    Most real owners don't spend 189 million a season on payroll.

    I am already so sick of hearing about the Blue Jays. They didn't spend at all after Clemens was traded and couldn't develop enough talent or didn't add to their young talent and now all of a sudden they go for broke.

    I think the Jays are in for a suprise......teams that flood their roster with so many new players usually do not perform that well as a team in their 1st year together.....2014 is different...

    They extended Dickey. Hehe.

    Johnson comes next. Hehe.

    Both should provide length. Hehe.

    Everyone in our lineup besides Jeter/Ichiro was swinging for the long ball. You can tell in their strides and hacks. You need more balanced players to make up a balanced lineup, obviously.

    Jeter, Bourne, Gardner, Ichiro

    +

    Tex, Granderson, Cano, ?, ? (Catcher, DH remain to be seen)

    +

    Youkilis, who is neutral with his ability to hit one out at any time as well. Cano may go in this category as well, but no sense in nitpicking.

    That's a balanced lineup...

    When A-rod returns, it becomes even more balanced. But I wouldn't use balanced, I would say complete.

    We have proven in history time and time again we can get to the post season by hitting home runs. However, we have also proved time and time again we fail to make it far into the post season because we are too reliant on looking for a 2 or 3-run home run to tie or put us in the lead.

    Plus, we need change. Tired of seeing the same type of players on the field each season. Hence my reasoning for wanting Swisher gone. I'm also happy Martin is gone. Let one of our kids play.
    Well this is right and wrong.
    iIt’s wrong in thinking that adding pure speed guys to the lineup makes it more balanced. It does not. Having a complete lineup doesn’t mean having one that is pure power guys mixed with pure speed guys. It means having guys who cover all the tools individually. Look at the Cardinals lineup. they lose Albert Pujols and theyre still one of the best offenses in the NL. Why? Because they have guys who don’t just rely on one facet of the game. They have guys who can do a little bit of everything. If you have a lineup full of one dimensional guys, whether it be power or speed, you aren’t going to have a very balanced lineup. let’s say somehow they do end up signing bourne.

    bourne-1 dimensional
    jeter-a little bit of everything
    cano-2 dimensional
    Teixeira-1 dimensional
    granderson-1 dimensional
    ichiro-1 dimensional
    gardner-1 dimensional
    youkilis-1 dimensional

    adding nothing but speed to the lineup doesn’t make you more balanced. it just makes you depend on something different.
