Needs more Red Sox. :hihi:


Seriously though, offensively it's not too shabby, though you may want to beef up on your pitching a little bit though. Keep an eye on the waiver wire the first few weeks to see if you can pickup some unknown a la Okajima last year.

I was thinking my pitching was lacking a little bit. I think Fausto is one of the best pitchers in the league, Javier Vazquez had over 200 k's last year, Francis was pretty good and still young, Chien-Ming Wang won 19 games. I held out on the pitching for a while. First 3 rounds I beefed up my outfield. May have reached for Granderson, but he is a total stud.

Yea, I think you're right there. Fausto's had the great ERA last year and Vazquez can make up for the lack of K's from Wang, and playing with that Yankee offense Wang will rack up the wins again.

On a side note, I haven't kept up with the Yankees as much this offseason. Do you know what's the word with Joba this year? Is he still coming out of the pen or are they moving him to starter full time? I know there was some debate between Hank, Hal, and Cashman with this.

The latest I heard was he will be a set up man until after the All-Star break, when they will try to make him a starter.
