Been a Yankee fan since the days of Mantle, Ford etc and I'm really perlplexed as to what they are doing , or shoud I say not doing this off season. Are the Steinbrenner boys that broke? Are they tying the organization's hands to put a viable contender on the field in 2013? Do they think they can fill those high priced seats with a third place team in the East? While the pitching for 2013 seems to be OK, everything else is totally askew.
Letting a decent young catcher go for unwillingness to pay about 15 million for two years. While I like and wanted Ichrio back we sign a 39 yera old to a 2 year contract. We sit on our hand while all avaiable decent right hand hitters are going elsewhere, even Scott Harriston, who would be good for say a two year contract will probably be lost due to the Yankee lack of dealing. Maybe we can trade for a few needs and I feel Nunez is a capable ML hitter if given a proper chance but I don't want to be sitting there in July 10 games out and know the Yankees did nothing to be contenders this year. So Cashman and the Steinbrenner Boys, what's up???????
I am in agreement with much of what you said but I especially agree with you in regard to Nunez. I hope we give him an opportunity this season.
And I gotta give you props for being the first poster I've ever seen here in PSD who was actually able to use the word 'askew' in a post.
