I would rather have that than a gaping hole in the lineup which is what Wilson is. I'm sure this will be addressed either from within or through a trade so I am not worried and I'm not whining.
not to nitpick but dont you think that the the current Yankees linup (and the whole team prolly)is better than the Yankees of a few years ago... its just that some of the teams that every team in their division has gotten better... and i don't know of Stienbrenner knows this or not- but you can't just go out and buy a player everytime you need one. plus the Yankees have very little trade bait except for Navarro... no one wants Lofton

also the Yankees prolly have more bandwagon fans than all the teams in MLB combined.. in mean i can respect all true fans of any team but those kinda people just piss me off. i bet more than half of the Yankee "fans" can't even name all the teams in the majors and just to make it clear i don't think that there are any significant numbers of "bandwagon Yankee haters".. people who hate/dislike the Yankees do for a reason and not because its fashionable to hate the Yankees
