And how did the Phillies get both Lee and Halladay to take massive pay cuts over the last two years to sign with them?
The Royals are licking their lips in anticipation of the haul they're gonna get for Greinke.
What else can the Yanks do? Brandon Webb?
CARL PAVANO? Ironic.
I don't see any way the Yankees deal for Grienke. The Yankees can beg Pettitte to come back and go with a rotation of Sabathia-Hughes-Pettitte-Burnett-Nova and spend the money saved from Lee on bolstering the bullpen with guys like Wood and Feliciano. Maybe Soriano if they are real desperate and he's willing to play a setup role (for closer pay).
You guys quickly forget that the Yankees routinely won 95-100 games and the AL East every year from 2004-2007 with garbage in their rotation. Aaron Small and Shawn Chacon anyone? This team is certainly talented enough to compete for a WC at the very least with their lineup. And they have a ton of financial flexibility now.
Agreed, the Yankees will be more than fine. They aren't the AL East favorites, but I don't see any team that will overtake them for the WC in the AL. Should win at least 90 games again.
