Wishing anybody who stops by a very Merry Christmas. May all your Yankees dreams come true! (Mine’s Scherzer. So far he’s not under my tree.)
Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile, but I couldn’t muster a whole lot of enthusiasm for the arrivals of Brian Roberts and Matt Thornton, though I do hope they’ll be welcome additions to the Yankees roster. The Carlos Beltran press conference went well, and I think he’ll give the offense some pop. No idea what they’ll do with so many outfielders. And, of course, we still need pitching. But it’s certainly been an eventful off-season so far.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and here’s to spring training!
With only a couple of days until Christmas, I thought I’d check in with this blog one more time to:
#1 Wish everybody a very Merry.
#2 Express my bewilderment at Cashman’s off-season “strategy.”
To elaborate, the Yankees GM said starting pitching was a priority and yet he’s done nothing except re-sign Sweaty Freddy. Puzzling? It is to me.
Today’s report was that he likes Kuroda but doesn’t have the money. Excuse me? The Yankees don’t have the money?
We’ve seen Darvish, Wilson, Buehrle, and now Gio Gonzalez land with teams. Yes, there’s Edwin Jackson and Roy Oswalt, but nobody expects the Yankees to go after them (with good reason).
So where does that leave us?
Right – with an empty Christmas stocking.
I just hope Hector Noesi turns out to be the second coming of Ivan Nova.
