Might as well put a Ferris wheel and a merry go round out there in center field, because the Yankees just became a bona-fide circus with this Arod nonsense.
The Yankees have just become the Jets...and they have no one to blame but themselves.
Andy and Mo are retiring after the season, and Jeter can't seem to stay away from the DL. What do the Yankees do? Do they offer him a 1 year contract to end his career? Or let him walk? Be kind of hard to let the face of your franchise play for another team no matter how you look at it. I'm concerned about Tex, the last year and half he has dealt with wrist issues, and he's getting older. Also he can still hit for power and play a solid first base, but his average has gone down every year.
That Montero trade was bad for both franchises, but the thing is if we kept Montero for another year or so made him look like a top young player we could have gotten another top prospect from another team. The Yankees didn't do enough homework on Pineda, and from what I'm hearing he won't play till next season. The Youkilis deal was bad from the start, this wasn't the same player in Boston, this was a guy whose best years were behind him and the Yankees got desperate because of A-Rod's injury. Also another big mistake was not resigning Martin, he has helped the Pirates pitching staff tremendously. The Yankees catchers this year have been arguably the worst I have seen in a Yankees uniform in a long time.
The Yankees have some work to do this off-season, they have to decide what to do with Cano, no team will give him a 10 year deal, and neither should the Yankees. Granderson and Hughes are good as gone, and this team is getting older by the season. Tough times ahead of this franchise.

I thought this was an 85 win team they might not even win that many. The future for this franchise is extremely bleak. its going to be 4 or 5 years before they can compete for World Series again. , I see absolutely no reason for optimism either. We have aging players that suck or cant get on the field at 3 infield spots. Cano is going to want 30 million over 8 years probably and that will screw us even more. We have not 1 outfielder thats worth a damn as Granderson is gone. Please tell me why this team, will be any good. I rather have the Mets roster right now. Im disgusted with the direction of this franchise. I can not believe they let it get this bad. How do u not try to get better or younger. They are in a 2 year holding pattern. I dont mind losing but actually rebuild with youth. If they were going to spend money they should of spent it on a 22 year older like Puig not garbage like Youkalis. i was pissed off about this season from the jump.There was no reason for excitement or optimism with this team. Being an old team that cant win is the worst thing u can be.I usually purchase a ticket package but I didnt even bother this year. I refuse to pay top dollar for this
