Discuss the Yankees in here (Formerly Inside the Lines II)
Please show some courtesy to your fellow fans and use descriptive thread titles in this sub-forum and in all other areas of this forum so everyone knows exactly what's being discussed in a particular thread.
A thread titled "Joe Torre" for example could be about anything - please specify exactly what you want to discuss in the thread you're starting such as "Will Joe Torre Ever Come Back to the Yankees?". Not everyone has a lot of time on the forum to go in and out of every single thread so...
According to Jon Heyman, Yanks acquire utility infielder Brignac from Rockies. No mention what they gave up. Can't imagine it would be much.
Now that spring training is here and all players have reported, it is time to begin speaking of the season that will lead to our 28th World Series Championship.
Despite the lack of moves this off-season, I, for one, believe that this Yankee team will be successful and has a solid chance to advance to and win the World Series. Our starting pitching is intact, Mo has returned (and appears to have lost nothing, from what I read) and we acquired pieces that I believe will fit well on this team....
I was wondering with all the Yank injuries this year how do you think Steinbrenner would handle this? Would he fire the training staff? Demand that Cashman empty the bank and acquire any available superstars that are out there? Or, would he demand to know why Yankee fans are not coming out to support their team like they did in the past? Just wondering. What do the rest of you fans think?;)
TH: RC-24......you tell me.
HM: DP-41......strong, strong 7 IP, great pick off and 8 SO.
Pitched a gem
Yankees appear to be scrapping plan of staying below $189M payroll

The age of austerity doesn't look like it'll last long for the Yankees. (USA Today Sports)
All along, the New York Yankees have stated the effort to cut their 2014 payroll to $189 million is merely a goal. More and more, it's one major league sources don't believe they'll reach.
In recent months, the Yankees have become far less bullish on their publicly stated austerity plan, admitting to other executives and...
Will the payroll be under 189M or will the Yankees continue working over the luxury tax?
according to Joel Sherman, Cano/Boras wants a 10 year deal at top market value, likely meaning 20+ million a season....
would you do it?
I honestly think I would just pick up his 2013 option and trade him at the deadline rather than get hooked into another A-Rod type deal
The 12th Annual NYYFans.com Prediction Contest - 2013 Edition
For the 12th straight year we are pleased and proud to present the NYYFans.com Prediction Contest - the 2013 edition.
A contest that begins in the beginning of March and ends (hopefully) in early November...
This year's contest is ready and Lou's site has been updated.
Here is the link to the contest:
this is even messier than it looks, 'cause Gardner, Ichiro, and Wells are all hitting better against left-handed pitching so far.
ichiro against lefties: .350 .341 .450 .791, 110 wRC+
gardner against lefties:.260 .309 .480 .789, 108 wRC+
wells against lefties: .347 .389 .571 .960, 158 wRC+
ichiro against righties: .230 .305 .338 .643, 66 wRC+
gardner against righties:.259 .344 .353 .697, 93 wRC+
TH: Cano (without that 2 RBI double we would have lost, plain and simple)
HM: Overbay, Robertson
TH: Nuno (1st ever Major League start, pitched 5 scoreless innings)
HM: Romine, Joseph, Overbay
...and yes this is the Yankees Team Hero thread not the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders Team Hero thread
For the first time in years Vegas has the Yanks at 86 total wins for 2013. What do you think?
Im going under at 84.
HM: Kuroda, Cano
Starting tomorrow, we have 34 games in 34 days with one off day and one doubleheader. Who will start the May 13 doubleheader? Will Nuno start?
On another note, our next three road trips are all 8 or more games. The previous time that happened was in 2007.
TH: Wells (without the 2 run HR Pettitte gets tagged with the loss, and the catch at the end could have cost the game if he missed it)
HM: Pettitte, Mo
HM: Ichiro, Kelley
Team Hero: CC Sabathia
Honorable Mentions: Robinson Cano, Vernon Wells, Chris Nelson, Adam Warren, Boone Logan, David Robertson, and Mariano Rivera
I don't think any Yankee would have an extremely high WPA (win probability added). I gave Team Hero or Honorable Mention to half the Yankees that played.
