Eh. I caught my mistake. The yankees could win it i just dont see them winning.
Now i just think if you can build a core out of young players and such. Now im not saying if you sign a high profile free agent you wont win the world series. I just believe that you need to have guys be with each other for some years so they can mesh. I believe the yankees could win a world series in the near future i just dont believe it will happen this year. I mean holy snot the yankees have a good core now but i think it will take a year or two to mesh and get that team chemistry going.
I mean look at this core that the Yankees have now
And just a select of some players who are in the bullpen or could be in the bullpen
Edwar Ramirez (I love this guy i wish he was in a twins uni)
I mean you guys now have some great pitching! But i also think if Stein wants to open up the check book some more i say get another starter so Joba can be a RP. Most ppl flame me on this but plz dont im just giving my opinion. The reasoning is he was such a dominant RP and just wasnt as dominant yet. You could give him another year but i just think you should sign another player or let your Top Pitching Prospect (Besides Joba and Hughes) and have him start in the 5 spot.
You also have some nice Position players
Ya got Molina and Jorge at Catcher
You also have
jeter, cano, duncan(potential 30 HR guy someday), arod
Then now you have Cameron for Melky so cameron will bring in some leadership.
ALso in the OF you have Damon (kinda getting worse but still a decent peice) You have Nady and and Swisher and Matsui. And even Christian who is a good prospect.
I mean now this is just a debate between two hardcore fans for there teams so dont personally hate me. A rivalry is nice but dont hate me personally and bash me personally. Because i promise i wont. (You havnt bashed me yet but im just saying in the future because some ppl have held grudges liek that)
But this is how i think the playoffs and divisions and stuff will go
The sox being 4th and twins being first is not me just being biased. I am taking consideration on possible incmoing players. The active roster and the Farm Systems of possible players coming onto the Major League Clubs.
