    What a wast of money, bring johhny damon back he united the club house. Cashman only care about saving money now it looks like after George died. Yankees have no pitching Garcia will get hurt. The Red Sox with Bobby V look more fun to wtach and root for than the yankees at this point. Steinbrenner’s need to sell they don’t know how to run the team like George. We pay a lot of money for tickets and parking for what a retirement playing team

      Yankees are getting old !! A-rod is basically done they will never win a WS with a-rod again he is done!They have no clutch players in the lineup will be boring to watch this year. It looks like they are in a saving mode. I can not blame them for not signing these big names. Trade some guys eat there salaries and move on this crew will not win! Swisher has to go too as well as tex he is a great fielder but a zero clutch player.
