So the reason NYY fans didn't want ARod resigned was the way the opt-out was handled? Did NYY fans such as you want ARod to fail during the 2009 post season?...

Mike Lowell? A dead pull hitter at YS? Please...

Who's blaming anyone? Would be naive to think that the sons would have made a $275 million decision without getting their father's thoughts. If Hal didn't have this $189 million mandate for 2014, his contract would be a non-issue...

Yanks will not be sellers at the trade deadline this year. They are still in contention for the AL East crown. There is no perfect team in the east in 2013, everyone has holes but none as glaring as the Yankees age.

Offer qualifying contracts to Grandy, Hughes and Joba. No way bring back Andy and his 20 starts for $15 million. Overbay, Hafner, Stewart...adios. Rivera is retired and Aj Burnett is off the payroll. Jeter wants to come back it should be for peanuts also.

Rotation will be CC, Pineda, Nova, Phelps and TBA. Montgomery gets called up for the bullpen and Robertson gets the first nod to try and replace Rivera as closer.

Think Cashman likes to play the "go ahead and sign my FA" game and will draft college ball players who can be put easily into AA ball.
Arod is better then what they have and there is not much better out there top trade for.
Don't NYY being sellers though if someone offered up something useful for Granderson, think he gets moved...

Agree on offering qualifying offers to HR Hughes & Joba. Would let Granderson walk. He may sign the qualifying offer. Too costly to keep if Hal stick to his $189 million mandate. Where does Granderson play with Wells & Ichiro signed for 2014 at low dollars? Don't see Jeter playing for "peanuts."

Too early for me to say if Pineda is part of the rotation. Mongomery looks to need more time in AAA based on his numbers @ SWB. Lots can happen between now & 2014...

Didn't montgomery have a good 2012 in triple aaa? Think nuno and rameriz make the squad. If almonte continues to perform they may have solved one problem. Cervelli needs to come back and put romine back in the minors asap.

If cano goes expect next year to be worse. No kuroda? Who knows what tex will do. Ichiro and wells regress more? Scary thought. If I was cash make this year work.

Now please tell me what jeter gets. No way some 15 mil contract. He might not be able to consistently play the field.

Montgomery was solid in A & AA. His numbers this season @ SWB look average. Time will tell with Almonte as it did with Adams. Romine does look to need more time @ SWB...

Wouldn't be surprised if NYY makes the same offer to Kuroda as they did this season. Scary thought is right regarding Ichiro & Wells...

Don't see Jeter's ego allowing him to be paid no less than $10 million base salary for next season, especially if he returns this season & shows he's can still play...

well, isn't his option, 9.5mil??[jeter] key words, still play. what if he is a 260 hitter, part time dh and fielding regresses?

do the yanks give him 2 years? at 18 mil [total] or just hold him to the option...last deal was not a nice negotiation. jeter does not have a good year coming off the injury, I cant see it getting better, no matter how much they need him. cash will not pay 25 mil for 2 years. doubt that.

not asking you to guess money, as it depends on the year he has...

I do like nuno and rameriz however...I can see them on the squad next year. yanks have some late inning guys and some long guys and what appears to be 4 and 5 starters.

No way Jeter gets two years and I'm the biggest Jeter homer in here. If he was smart he'd excercise his $9.5 million option

Think Hal & Jeter go a year at a time going forward...

Sanchez, Austin & Heathcott keys to their offensive future...

If Kuroda wants to still play ball in MLB he'll resign with the Yankees otherwise he'll sign and play back in Japan to end his career. Kuroda is old school.

Agree Romine should go back to AAA but overall he should some good things while he was up here.

Ichiro? There are worse OF's then him and he's till batting .270 and could get hot. Wells looks like a bust as an everyday OF. One more year of those 2 baby sitting until 2015 season when one of the Yankee OF prospects are ready is not the end of the world.

But Yanks are old.....not the offensive machine they were the past 15 years but then again the 1996 Yanks were not an offensive power house and won with pitching.

Pineda? Agree he has a lot to prove but if he's healthy watch out, he can flat out pitch.

his option is 9.5 mil....a lot depends on the balance of this year...

Huge win for the home town Yankees. Any notice Yanks beating big game pitchers in 2013 like Verlander, Hernandez and Darvish?
