say what you want about Nick Swisher, but he was very productive, a total bargin until now, and we got him for wilson betamit. he signed kuroda, he got ichiro and ibanez.
The Yanks replaced Cone with Mussina and Giambi with TexThis is exactly my whole point.. He replaced another FA with another FA at a higher cost!. .that is why he spent 3 billions dollars.. This is a horrible business model to have. .you simply cant just buy one player after the next or the Yankees would win every year.. you have to have home grown players and mix in some FA and MAKE TRADES!.. Where are the last two on this list for the past 14 years?....
There are guys on the way up who are going to slot in all over the OF, C, the rotation, the bullpen and potentially at 2B and 3B.dcone where was the plan 7 years ago? or the plan since 1998 thru 2006? and why when Cano and other leave we will ask these same questions over the next two years!..
rooting for Heathcott, Austin, Williams, Joseph, Sanchez, Montgomery, Phelps, etc.
