If this is the best offer Youkilis can find, then he should take it.
If he visits Fenway as a Yankee, I would still salute him and give him a warm welcome.
Seems like most of the fire has gone out of the Sox-Yanks rivalry of late...we have to worry more about the Orioles and Blue Jays nowadays.
I hope Youk does well for himself wherever he ends up.
[/QUOTE]"fire has gone out of the Sox-Yanks rivalry.
That has more to do with the Sox than NY.
That may change as the Sox work at improving their team.
Thanks to "coupon clipping Hal" the Yanks are falling back into the AL East pack.
The Yanks have several players of age coming off of injuries.
Can Robertson rebound to 2011 form and assume set-up role?
Who will play 3rd, and can they build their bench on limited payroll?
For the first time in memory the Yanks have legit concerns which in the past were dealt with by simply throwing more money at the problem. Money that now appears scarce. If TWM reads this than I'am sure he will tell us that all the Yanks problems will all dissolve with the constant flow of future HOF prospects currently in the Yanks farm system.
It's always about me with you I rent space in your head.
You conveniently ignore that while GS was alive I also wrote for years in numerous posts that Yankee fans should enjoy because things would change drastically after GS passes.
And they have, the old man was a genius who could leap over any financial obstacle baseball put in front of him.
Yankees like most other teams have talented youngsters in the farm system.
Yankees best talent finished 2012 at high A. But you might see Mark Montgomery next season.
If the Yankees want to compete in 2013 and get under the 189 payroll cap next season simple just give away enormous 1 year contracts and wait until the next wave is ready.
