In response to BMav's comment:
Red Sox scored 853 runs. The Yankees scored 650 runs. Do the math. The Yankees then lost by far their best offensive player. He had 107 RBI's. The next best RBI guy? Overbay at 59!
The idea that the Yankees will have a better offense next year is funny.
not saying who has the best offense
doesn't matter much in dec
but some of the reasoning here is funny
U mentioned overybay without mentioning teix will be taking his place
others question the difference between ells and grandy
thing is we didn't have either last yr
The way I see it Zac is last year the Yanks won something like 89 games using subs for the most part and their best pitcher had an off year.
Cano cannot be replaced by a single addition to the club but a collective approach which has to include more bench depth can have the same result.
Case in point the 2013 Red Sox. Agon was without question their best player the previous year (sorry Dustin) and by taking the approach I noted above resulted in a Championship.
If the season started today I would give my Sox the edge.
But it doesn't and the Yanks have time to further improve as do the Sox.
IMO both the Sox and Yanks aren't close to being done.
How can the yankees improve? Acquire another 6 Outfielders? Spend the remainder of the budget on more bats and no arms? Platoon at every position and only carry 7 arms? Call up one of their studs from the minors lol They can marginally improve at the bottom of the order but slots 1 through 7 are already set....
