@ WWF - I wouldn't cheer too much. This is obviously how the Jays plan to win the division. They're coming for LONGO soon.

Well, they're trying to get under the salary cap because there's stiffer penalties after this season, the team is just such shit though.

It's Hal running things now. Much more frugal than his father, George.

Yeah I know. I was being facetious. I know Hal is anal about the 189 mil luxury tax threshold. That's still no excuse for signing these warn out bums, especially Hafner

Yeah. I never thought I'd see the day a number cruncher would rule the yanks. Even with The Boss gone, Hank tried to carry on his spend at will style, but just doesn't have the passion for baseball to care as much anymore

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

No doubt. Blue Jays ownership saw one of the luckiest teams in MLB history (based on the Pythagorean diagram) contend for the AL East to the last day or two of the season in the Baltimore Orioles (gotta give Buck Showalter a good deal of credit for how he handled their bullpen, too) last year. Red Sox are in rebuilding mode (by their standards, anyway), Yankees are old, fat and lazy (philosophically as a team) and severely banged up. AL East could definitely be more of a race between the Jays and the Rays than anyone else this season, at least if all of their respective pieces fit right (and of course there's always that "if").

What's the Yankee lineup probably going to be Opening Day? There's legitimate concern over whether or not Jeter can make it back, despite his comments to the contrary (knowing him, though, he'll probably just make it... maybe he can DH the first week or two of the season, heh). A-Rod's situation seems cloudy as hell. Now Granderson out until probably mid-May.

If Ichiro has anything left to offer, Yankees might end up being happier about that re-signing than they thought when they went through with it.

Yankees are wise to escape the heightened luxury tax penalties. Ownership realizes that they have to tighten their belts at least a little bit this year if they truly want to keep Robinson Cano wearing pinstripes beyond 2013, just for starters.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Good grief, this Spring Training game between the A's and Angels is going to break records for its length of time.

It took them an hour to play the first inning. Stupid feckless pitchers.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Honestly, if Jeter is able to play from the beginning and Teixiera doesn't have his trademark opening-month(s) slump, I'm not sure how much the Yankees will really miss Granderson. He's certainly a loss, yes, but if they obtain a replacement that is able to get on base well enough, they'll be fine. The lineup will miss the pop that Curtis can bring, but if they can get a player with a solid OBP, they'll be alright.

With that said, their only real internal options are Juan Rivera and Matt Diaz, so things don't look very good.

The AL East is not the almighty powerful anymore. I like it.
