iIt's time for the slumbering Yankee beast to wake up.

It almost sounds like this guy is desparate for the Yankees to make a move. This hack probably can't wait to write a column bashing the Yankees for overpaying Zito or something just as useless.


Has any free agent signed yet that the Yankees really should have been aggressive after? (Maybe Greg Zaun, but that's a $7 million spare part). This is not a stellar market for pitching and I don't blame Cashman for being lukewarm going after Lilly, Meche, Padilla and the rest. The Yankees could have kept Jaret Wright for similar results next year and saved some money.


The Yankees aren't going to sign Schmidt, and outside of fantasyland it is going to take more than Melky and Sanchez to pry Willis away from Florida. With the price of pitching, if any team is going to trade the Yankees a #1 or #2 starter they are going to start the package at Cano and Hughes.


The only team in baseball that is set right now for next year is the Tigers; every other team that made the post season has huge gaps (name the Twins and Cardinals rotations right now). Even within the division, look at the Toronto and Boston rosters and tell me how worried you are about Toronto's rotation or Boston's bullpen and lineup.


As unfair as it sounds to the spoiled fans, there may not be a superstar solution to the Yankees needs this offseason. Igawa and Karstens could be rounding out the rotation starting the season while the Yankees get their payroll in line with reality and wait patiently for the next wave of kids in late 2007/2008.
