Starting depth is looking like an issue next year, and I can't helped but be intrigued by the idea.
Yes, Joba was a failed experiment. I know.

What are some of the moves you want to see this winter? I'm hoping we pick up Lester and/or Scherzer first and foremost but I also think adding a right fielder with power is crucial. Nelson Cruz? We will also have a middle of the infield to put together, I have a feeling we sign JJ Hardy and see how Refsnyder does at 2nd in Spring Training.
To continue Tz's awesome tribute to Jeter in the countdown thread, I've amassed over 180 pictures of Jeter and plan to post one for every day to the end of the regular season. Enjoy.
Do you think this record is achievable? Looking at the schedule, the Yanks have more home games left than anyone else in MLB (40). Let's just consider the possibility of turning things around and regain their home field advantage. Can they go 28-12 at home? Can they play slightly better than .500 on the road (15-13)? Will 90 wins get them into the playoffs?

Hands down, the Hero of the Night
With Derek Jeter retiring (some of you may have heard about this) the Yankees may choose to go captainless, as they did for many years, or they may name a successor. If the latter, who do you think would be a good candidate. It would have to be someone, obviously, with leadership qualities, and also fairly successful on the field.
My nominee would be, assuming he is healthy, CC Sabathia, He seems like a very mature, leader, very competitive, and he would be someone the rest of the team could...
As optimistic as I can possibly be, I think finishing up 17-8 gets the NYY to 88 wins and gets at least a tie for the 2nd WC.
The land mine is the 9/12-9/14 series at Baltimore. Anything less than 2-2 could be the KO punch. 3-8 vs the O's this year
