I'm a Yankee fan, and I'm not trying to hijack the thread or rub salt in the wound, but. What do you think is wrong with this team? Is it the front office? The coaching? The players on the field? All of the above? On paper, they should be much more successful than they have been. Certainly, injuries will always play a role with any team, but...what is going on with that team?
They seem to have the money to spend...are they afraid of overpaying the likes of a Texiera or CC (soon to be Halladay, Lackey, even Mauer in 2011)?? Or do yo think that those elite free agents just don't want to play in Flushing with the Mets? What does their farm system look like? Any prospects that can start a new generation for this team?
I was talking with a buddy of mine who is a Met fan, and he's a very loyal fan and pretty knowledgeable baseball guy, and he sadly thinks that this team needs to start from square 1 yet again.
