Since the off-season is over I thought it time to move over to the 2015 season thread.
Not sure how much they'll do between now and the summer to fix the middle infield, or deepen the starting rotation, or improve the bench. But one thing that looks like it will need to be a priority is either 2B, SS, or possibly both. The quality of our middle infield right now is dreadful. We're pretty well locked in to what we have for offense otherwise, but these two positions sure could use some upgrades. I don't think Cashman's going to spring for a big money player at either position, but...

Zack Hample is the guy who caught the ball and he is somewhat notorious around baseball for catching home run balls. I remember seeing him on Sports Center catching 2 balls in a game and doing a stupid dance. I believe he caught the last homer run a t Shea Stadium and Mike Trouts first home run. He's even written books on the subject.

I'd like to see the Yanks sit Beltran for a while and bring in Slade Heathcote; send down Gregorus and bring up Refsnyder, both moves to help our offense. Both Gregorus and Beltran are lost at the plate. Even Mickey Mantle was sent down in his rookie year because he was pressing to much and when he came back up he was gangbusters.
Comments? It's not to early to make the move to improve the team.
I know that this is a long shot to think that the Yanks would trade for him with his big contract and the need to give up big prospects , but I wouldn't be shocked if this happened. The Yankees rotation is a mess with no help in sight! What do thr rest of you think is going to happen?
Earlier this week I was thinking how nice it was to have a period of time so far this spring without any major injuries. The Brendan Ryan thing didn't sound like a big deal, and then I heard about Capuano today. Although I wasn't much of a fan of him as the #5, it's still a bit discouraging. Hope his rehab goes well, and he's back in uniform soon. Hopefully one of the kids will earn a shot at it and do well in the meantime, and keeping fingers crossed that this won't be anything like the last...
