Beltran would be nice but offense obviously isn't the yanks problem
The need is not offense. It's this question: Who will play CF for the Yanks in 2006, 2007 etc?
I understand that thinking - really I do. The best CF in the game is on the market so why not get him.
It's not like the Yankees have been hard pressed to make deals. I'm pretty sure they could pass on Beltran and get a CF, either through free agency or more likely a trade, in a year or so. Andruw Jones is one name that comes to mind.
That is true. That's why I personally don't care if he's in pinstripes this year. I know the Yankees will get someone else when the time comes. I just want a great pitching staff.
