Bugg - That is one nice pick-up and potentially one nice pick-up. The only possible question for Vazquez is if he does a Jeff Weaver and cracks under the NY spotlight. I think he will be fine, but the Yanks are putting alot of eggs into the Kevin Brown basket. If he remains his injured self, it will be Moose, Vazquez, an enigma in COntreras and questionable Lieber. For the first time since the early 90s, the Yanks could implode with a spotty defense and fragile starting pitching. This could be a sub .500 Yanks team. Granted, George will buy a team before that happens. $300 million team salary.
I give you credit man. You are passionate about your Sox.
A sub .500 Yankee team though? Cmon man. The offense is better. The bullpen is better. The rotation has questions but even if things go wrong is still good enough.
How about the Yankees BULLPEN? Really think about it. Scared yet?
The rotation has questions but it wasn't like they didn't have questions last year either. Wells and Clemens weren't very young. Pettite leaving is a huge loss. Chalk that one up to George being George, and I am not happy about it.
But 1st place is where they will finish.
I do want to thank you for starting this thread though PFSKISH. Because now I am PUMPED for baseball.
