    Re: 2006 team all but complete

    Jason Michaels and Erubiel Durazo/Eduardo Perez should definitely be looked at. We need to upgrade the bench. Although, Michaels would probably play RF, with Sheffield moving to DH.

    Re: 2006 team all but complete

    One of the following will not be a Yankee when the season starts:

    Pavano
    Wright
    Chacon

    We're not going North with 6 starters. Small is the perfect long relief/spot starter type. I hope Chacon stays because he deserves to based on performance to cost. I'd like to see what a healthy Pavano could do for us next season. Wright would be my odd man out, but would be the hardest to move.

    I agree with you completely. I want to trade Wright, but he probably wouldn't get us anything. There is no way I trade Chacon. And pavano would probably bring back the most in a trade, which would result in Small or Wright going into the rotation (which I'm not crazy about.) If we trade Pavano, we would have to get a starter back in return.

    I would rather trade Pavano than Wright. Because of the DL buyout we are only on the hook for 1 more season with Wright. We will have Pavano for 3 more and, unless he surprises us, any value he may currently have will dissipate with a mediocre season.

    Cashman has done a tremendous job, but we still have a weak outfield defensively. Cash should continue to pursue a fast young outfielder with a good arm and a decent bat. That would allow us to put Sheff in DH where he belongs. Then we can safely say that the rebuilding of this team is complete.

    Re: 2006 team all but complete

    I think we should sign OF Eric Byrnes to be our 4th outfielder, he would be a perfect fit,can play all OF positions,good defense,good speed,does any and everything asked of him to win. Also I think we should add 1B/DH Eduardo Perez to the bench. WE should also sign CF Endy Chavez...but now that we have added Bernie, there's no room . But we still need to atleast try to sign him to a Minor League Deal.


    I dont think we should deal Sturtze right now, we should wait until Dotel is back and has proved he is still Dotel and then we could afford to trade him.
    (Unless it involves getting a good young pitcher for the starting lineup )

    We also need to improve our starting pitching, im just clueless to how we're going to pull that one off tho. Any Ideas??


    and on a meaning-less move, I think we should sign Dewon Brazelton to a Minor-League Deal. This guy is still very young (only 25-years-old) and has loads of potential. We would be improve our minor-league depth and you never know, he could bounce back from a horrible season he had last year.

    We need a DH and to strengthen the bench a bit. Everything else looks good.
    Actually our lineup is at best the same as last year. We need to get Bernie out of there ASAP and replace him with a real hitter.

    Yep, it partially negates our offensive advantages at other positions. We should have at least a league average offensive DH.
    I mean, people knew that Brown was out there, and that Randy was ornery all the time. And Pavano is whoever he is. But if youre their manager, you cant go out and write about them like that.

    Re: 2006 team all but complete

    Our middle relief is still a question mark?

    Mariano is not a LOCK anymore.(need to start looking or grooming a young'un)

    Starting Rotation is question mark

    We need to replace Posada. How many more rally-killing, inning ending double plays do we have to endure from this guy?

    How is it "at best the same as last year" Bernie is out of center, Ruben is off the team. The key to the DH spot is having it be Sheff more and looking at a solid defensive corner OFer we dont need a real hitter for DH, we have that in Sheff.

    I dunno... I like Gary ShefFIELD of DREAMs rocket arm in the outfield.

    Damon replaces Bernie.
    Bernie replaces Tino/Sierra

    Our lineup is clearly better than last year's.

    You are right he is not a lock, he is just the best damn closer in the league and is coming off of one of the best years of the career.

    I will not trade that arm for lack of range, you can get more guys catching the ball than you can throwing them out.

    His arm is okay, but his range is terrible.

    Rivera, even at his age, is still the closest a reliever can get to being a lock, perhaps in baseball history.

    I think our lineup is better. Damon, this year, will be a lot better than the output we got from Bernie/Crosby/Womack/etc. We'll also have the good Giambi for the entire year, instead of just the second half. Cano should continue to improve, and I think in the end the bench will be better. I don't expect Sheffield to regress significantly enough to offset the other factors.

    Sheff's a year older. A-rod probably won't have the monster season he had this year. Posada will suck even more. Bernie's in the lineup. No bench.
    With that said this can all change with the right aquisitions.

    All I am saying is that we need to start looking. He was so vital to winning for all those years. It would be a shame to have all those hitters and no one to save the games. If not this year then next... '

    I just dont want to wait til last minute. Its smart to start now.

    You make it seem like Rivera will go from having his best season ever, to someone who won't be able to save games. The middle relief is already a lot better than it was last year, as well.

    Are you serious? The guy hasn't even turned 30 yet, he's now had 2 full years in New York, one of which he won the MVP. He will have a great year, expect more of the same.

    Not to nit-pick, but he did turn 30 this past summer.
