Taking note

Looking ahead to the 2010 regular season…

The Positives:

The Infield:
You never worry about this infield. From left to right: Teixeira, Cano, Jeter, Rodriguez. To me, that’s the best in MLB. You won’t have to worry about that for a good five years.

Pettitte:
This rotation scares me. But, the Yankees needed something, and Pettitte was a good choice.

Wang:
I didn’t really want to see this guy give up 27 runs in three consecutive starts again. Hopefully he succeeds somewhere else, but I don’t want to even risk going through that again.

The Negatives:

Jackson:
They did it. They let him go. How dare they. There are some things you just don’t mess with. Your top prospect is one of them.

The ? Marks:

Granderson:
The Yankees gave up a lot for this guy. After all, the Yankees already have a .250 hitting outfielder in Nick Swisher. Plus, he’s 2/3 of a player because he can’t play against lefties. We’ll see.

Halladay:
Don’t get me started on this. If they make an offer, expect Montero and Joba/Hughes to be a part of it. Will they do it?

Damon:
The Yankees need someone to fill that DH spot. Boras is asking for a four year deal, the Yankees want no part of that. Who will back down?

Bay/Holliday:
Bay is waiting for something, I’m not quite sure what it is. Holliday has been dormant for the most part so far. The Yankees have done absolutley nothing in reagrd to either of these guys. Maybe similar to a Teixeira kind of situation?

To do list:

  • Get one or two starting pitchers.
  • Get one or two relief pitchers.
  • Sign a DH.
  • Make a decision on Bay/Holliday and stick to it.
