Looking at the Yankee lineup and I’m reminded of that line in Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Who Are Those Guys??????


there are so many holes on this yankee team it’s not funny. I don’t care if Stewart has a better BA than Cervelli at this point .Offensively Stewart is hopeless. And Cervelli is no great shakes at the plate either. They’ve gone into this season with no real #1 catcher. With ARod out and Youk struggling and hurt the 3rd in line is Joseph? bases loaded and Stewart can’t bring in a run. If Tex is out for any length of time we have Dan Johnson as an option for 1st base? Another hopeless hitter. Sorry Yankee fans but this team is going to be fighting with the Red Sox all season for last place in the division. Robert can call me negative if he likes but I don’t see a lot of positives other than pitching if it comes together.


Stewie hit it pretty well…twice! Otherwise we agree.


this yankee team is weak as it is but now with more injuries it looks even weaker. Even the GM is doing stupid skydiving and breaks an ankle. Who’s next? Got the AA team on the field tonight. Can’t understand why they have the world baseball series during spring training and why guys like Cano play in it instead of helping his team when the team needs him. This is going to be a long year.
