  1. I dont see how the yankees can aford to pay anyone after the 10 below. Maybe a reporter should try to get hold of the ny yankees president, and ask him if he is going to stick to what he said about a 40 man roster being no more than 189 million, before we continue to keep up this speculation and talk about signing free agents that dont fit into the economy of the yankees.

    teixeira, cano, jeter, arod, granderson, sabathia = 120.5 million base salary in 2013
    if we add Kuroda at 15 m, mariano at 10, pettite at 10, and ichiro at 10,………..

    that leaves 13.5 million left for 15 players on the 25 man roster

    to get the 25 man roster at 179 milion to have the 40 man roster at no higher than 189 million.

    the yankees got some wheeling and dealing to do here.

    • Jim, that’s a year away in 2014 isn’t it. I think they can cut salary by getting rid of Grandy,Kuroda,Ichiro,Mo,Pettite,and Ibanez next year.

  2. Look for the Yankees to shed Soriano, Ichy and Kuroda and Swisher.

  3. Broken Record….with the help of the good Lord, move A-rod to any team that wants a ‘star’…….Sign Hamilton, then stop and reassess. Everything will fall into place..

    • patrick, I don’t think the Yanks are going to be able to move A-Rod. I think they could move Grandy and sign another starter and reliever. Kuroda looks to be 50-50 right now, as for Ichiro it all depends on the money and length he is looking for

    • Patrick…I sometimes wonder about you!
      You are a broken record, when it comes to Alex, up until his hand injury he was considered one of the better all around 3rd basemen in the league. The chance of trading him are slim to none.
      Hamilton is one of my top players in baseball right now…talent wise! But, him in New York playing for this team, no way in hell would I touch that guy without having a contract letting me void the thing if he does this that or another, one would need a contract the Union would never allow, nor would Bud.
      What do you think of Keppinger for 3rd and SS? He will be 33 in the spring a righty with good bat control and puts wood on the ball.

    • Dad says you are right on Patrick. Arod out……Hamilton in. He says Hamilton will do great in NY just like Mickey Mantle who also had addiction problems.

  4. They met at a Dunkin Donuts… at first bite.

    She is now on the roof drying my undershirts.

  5. Respectively; Some think being an alcoholic, is like an addiction to drugs, News Flash: Alcoholism, also known as alcohol dependence, is a disabling addictive disorder…a sickness without any known drug treatment.

  6. I’m glad Tex is confident about the 2013 team. Now if only I had any confidence in Tex…….
