but, losing big game shields will hurt..a solid no 2 starter who could go 7,8 or 9 innings...a huge blow..davis a spot starter and recent pen guy is a very good arm...

Cano Will Not Give Yankees A Hometown Discount
By Mike Axisa [December 8, 2012 at 8:40am CST]
Robinson Cano is due to hit free agency after next season, and Mark Feinsand and Christian Red of The New York Daily News hear the second baseman will not give the Yankees a hometown discount. One source said Cano could seek a contract in line with Alex Rodriguez's.

"He’s not giving them a hometown discount, and they seem to be more interested in keeping their payroll down than winning," said one source while another added:“He knows he’s the best player on the Yankees ... There’s no reason for him not to be paid that way.”

Cano, 30, hit .313/.379/.550 with a career-high 33 home runs this past season and has produced a .314/.365/.534 line with 115 homers over the last four seasons. He's also proven to be extremely durable, playing in no less than 159 games in each of the last six seasons.

The Yankees will have paid Cano a total of $57MM through next season as part of the extension he signed prior to 2008. They have upwards of $80MM slated to come off the books after 2013 but are trying to get under the $189MM luxury tax threshold in 2014 and don't figure to reinvest all of that into the team. Cano hired Scott Boras prior to 2011 and told the Daily News he would "love" to remain a Yankee, but added: "I know this is a business ... It’s up to them."

I looked at Cano as an extension candidate back in April. Joel Sherman of The New York Post first reported last month that the second baseman would look for a market value deal after already signing one team-friendly contract.

never ever forget some of the stupid deals george made...he was far from perfect...some of the best things happened when he was banned from baseball...the concept of just buy the best players does not always work out as the sox found out. and the yanks have been burned before also...
yanks have a good rotation, good pen. and will have a good lineup.
rays just lost a number 2 starter who 2 years ago, the 1...and in wade davis a starter who went in the pen and excelled...they have much less hitting then the yanks..orioles have less starters...boston pickes up napoli and victorino and gomes..to replace ross, crawford and gonzo...that is not even close to being average to what they had..also, the orioles will not even come close to the 1 run game record they had...and, the jays picked up guys who helped the marlins stay in last...but, still at least better then last year. they will keep the sox in last
yanks will be fine.
"yanks will be fine" you got to be kidding no catcher, no RF and no 3rd baseman, a ss coming off injury ...

Sources: Yankees 'all over' Ichiro
December 9 Foxsports.com Share Article"Ichiro Suzuki enjoyed playing for the New York Yankees so much, he likely will be back with them again.

The Yankees are showing strong interest in re-signing the free-agent outfielder, according to major league sources.

"They are all over him," one source says. "That (a deal with Ichiro) will happen."

Ichiro, 39, would join two other left-handed hitters in the Yankees' outfield, Curtis Granderson and Brett Gardner.

The Yankees then would need a right-handed complement, presuming they do not trade Granderson, an idea the team is exploring, sources say.

The return of Ichiro would not preclude the Yankees from re-signing free agent Raul Ibanez, another left-handed hitter who likely would get most of his at-bats as a DH."

and you think they won't pick one up? or, one you think is good?

its early. even paul admits it. its the second week of dec...wait till the second week of jan...there is time.

tampa lost a great starter and a top pen guy who can start...the hitting on that team is pathetic...

balt starters are not as good as the yanks top 3, and the yanks 4 is better then their 4..pen, even. they will not win as many 1 run games again..

sox suck.

the jays got the guys who helped the marlins go in last...they will be tougher and tougher for all...not a pennant winner yet

yanks when the smoke clears will be fine...and when they win in the end, i will be right. I am no doom and gloom guy and usually i am the most negitive...

they will pull off some deal some time.

Fox Sports 10 greatest Yankees of all time. Wonder how anyone else top 10 teams compares?

1 Babe Ruth, OF/P — 1920-34The best Yankee ever is inarguably Babe Ruth. Yankee Stadium will forever be known as "The House that Ruth Built," and for good reason. Ruth was the first player to belt 30, 40, 50 and 60 home runs. In 1920, his 54 bombs with the Yankees eclipsed the total for every other American League team. The Babe: a Yankees, and baseball, legend

2 Lou Gehrig, 1B — 1923-39Gehrig was a member of the Yankees from 1923-39, enjoying his breakout season in 1926. To this day, he still holds many hitting records, including most career grand slams, with 23. He was dubbed the "The Iron Horse" for his consecutive games played streak (2,130), a record that stood for 56 years. His career was suddenly halted at age 36 by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), now commonly called Lou Gehrig's disease. He died in 1941.

3 Mickey Mantle, OF — 1951-68"The Mick" spent the entirety of his dominant 18-year career in Yankees pinstripes. A switch-hitter, Mantle won the Triple Crown in 1956, to go along with three AL MVP honors during his career. Mantle holds multiple World Series hitting records, including most home runs (18) and runs batted in (40).

4 Joe DiMaggio, OF — 1936–42 and 1946–51DiMaggio's a legend for his game both on and off the field. He holds what many consider to be an unbreakable record: a 56-game hitting streak. "The Yankee Clipper" was an All-Star selection in all 13 of his major league seasons, thanks in large part to his hitting prowess and ability to patrol center field with blistering speed. Off the field, DiMaggio's best known for his marriage to Hollywood pin-up Marilyn Monroe. He missed three seasons because of military service.

5 Yogi Berra, C — 1946-63Berra's widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history, if not the greatest. He won a record 10 World Series titles with the Yankees. A force with the bat, he's also famous for his unique take on the English language. Berra, a three-time AL MVP, was known for being able to hit even the worst pitches, to which he said, "If I can hit it, it's a good pitch."

6 Derek Jeter, SS — 1995-presentJeter, another Yankees lifer, started his career in New York with a bang, winning the Rookie of the Year award in 1996. He was then instrumental in New York's World Series victories in the mid-to-late '90s. The Yankees captain since 2003, Jeter's the Yankees all-time hits leader, hitting his 3,000th with a homer on July 9, 2011.

7 Whitey Ford, P — 1950–67Hall of Famer Whitey Ford spent his entire 18-year career with the Yankees. Nicknamed "The Chairman of the Board" for his ability to remain calm in pressure-packed situations, he was a six-time World Series champ and holds the record for most games won (236) with the Yankees.

8 Reggie Jackson, OF/DH — 1977-81Simply put, Jackson's postseason numbers are eye-popping. His clutch hitting in the playoffs earned him the nickname "Mr. October." In Game 6 of the 1977 World Series, he belted three home runs off three different Dodgers pitchers. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993, Jackson's No. 44 jersey is retired by the Yankees.

9 Alex Rodriguez, 3B — 2004-presentRodriguez hasn't had the longest, or smoothest, career with the Yankees ... but it's far from over, and his talent is inarguable. A-Rod became the youngest player ever to hit 500 home runs — and then 600 — beating Babe Ruth's pace by more than a year. Rodriguez won a World Series with the Yankees in 2009.

10 Mariano Rivera, RP — 1995–presentIt seems as though Rivera has been anchoring the Yankees' bullpen forever. The ageless wonder continues to amaze, setting the all-time saves record on on Sept. 19, 2011 — and he's not done yet. He also boasts the MLB postseason record for saves and ERA, marks both he and the Yankees hope to improve upon.

Not sure what they are going to do or not do..with the exception of the Kuroda signing and overpaying pettitte I haven't seen them do anything positive in my view yet..Rumor signing's of Ichiro and or youk is getting older not better..youk's replacing an injured Arod and youk's always injured himself..Ichiro will not offset the loss of swishers numbers..yes its tougher for all but this team is getting weaker not better..Baltimore and toronto are better then they were last year, yanks aren't even close to being a pennant winner with this team, right now Baltimore is the team to beat..Yanks don't appear to have a plan in place so I think it's unlikely they pull off a deal...Not a doom and gloom guy either just being objective.
