Yankees 2013 Season

So far 2013 is not looking good. Not sure if more of the roster $$$ are active or on the disabled list. They should just write off this year and use it to rebuild. Cutting ties with A-Roid would be a good start.

If we can just hold our heads above water for April and May we can make a run. Gonna have to learn to score runs other ways than the previous few years, but def a team that could get it done. Also pitching has to hold up as always.

Never ceases to amaze me. He just knows how to pitch. IMO he will be the leader of the staff this season. This Indians series could be a big boost of confidence. Good to see Robbie getting his swing back from the WBC.

Petitte is a true craftsman.

Good chance they are better than expected if the pitching staff holds up.

All depends how well a few of the older players hold up.

Can't complain too much for the first 2 weeks given all the injuries. 7-3 in the last 10 too.

Quite remarkable so far. For once they have great depth on the pitching staff and it is paying off.

News about Jeter doesn't sound good. Hope he gets this thing healed completely before trying to come back. But I'm guessing after all star break at earliest if he's able to come back this year at all....kinda reminds me of the Ryan Howard Achilles injury last year. He had a lot of setbacks after getting hurt the last game of post season.

I am starting to get the feeling that Jeter will not be back this year. Very sad if this is how his career ends.

I'm getting that feeling too.....I don't think he will retire, but I do worry we've seen the last of the old Jeter.
But I think he's just like Mo and will rehab and give it at least another year or 2...whatever is left on his contract. Two more years I think?

I am sure he will rehab and come back if he can. I just hope he will close to the player he was last season. It would be ashamed for Jeter to go out on a low, give then Hall of Fame career he has had.

A-Rod on the other hand, not sure I want to see him in a Yankee uniform again.

Well I definitely wouldn't be surprised if they did try to get rid of him. But the problem will be no one is gonna want that contract so they are surely gonna be on the hook for the vast majority of it............but then again the Yankees see $$ with Arod too, b/c he's gonna be heading for 700 HRs and he's less than 100 hits from 3000 too......so who knows......it will be interesting to see. I'm not a huge Arod fan, but I still believe that when's he's healthy and locked in he's one of the most dangerous hitters in the game.

Question is will he ever really be healthy again?

If not, dump the contract and see if they can take it as a tax write off.

Well I don't think he will ever be the old healthy Arod, but I think he's still going to be better than most 3B in the game......
And as far as the contract, it's guaranteed. So you have to fork over the $ whether he's playing or not (ala Carl Pavano) ....so hopefully he's at least serviceable.....unless of course you trade him, but no one is going to take the rest of that deal without the Yankees picking up most of it. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds.
But I'm pleased how they've been playing the last 2 weeks.....and if not for the Sox being on such a roll, they would be in even better shape!

They do seem to be playing well. Overall the pitching has been outstanding.

Lackey was a nice surprise this week - as well the gift the NL gave to us in sending Houston to the AL this year. A tough road it looks like for them.

Thought of this post when I saw the below image today . . .

Houston game has to be Petite's worst start in years. Not sure most of the Houston players where even born when he began his career.

Yeah definitely a game you expect to win! Though I still think we are in much better shape than I expected us to be at this point. Hope it's not fools gold though.

It is the middle of May and the Yankees are in 1st place. Who would have thought?
