re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Lance Lynn is still struggling with lefties. Adam Eaton ruffling some feathers in Spring Training. First he had an encounter with "Mikey Moo" Moustakas and now Eaton collided with Brett Anderson. Loving it.

Brett Anderson is made out of candy glass. That guy will never stay healthy for an extended period of time for the A's.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I think the Yankees will be fine. Their rotation and bullpen is a great neutralizer. Still probably the second best group of SP's in the AL East, behind Tampa, and I think that is arguable. I don't think their lineup will be as dreadful as people think. Jeter, Gardner, and Ichiro can all handle the bat at the top of the order. They're still pretty good. Cano will drive a lot of runs in. Nunez is a good hitter.

Don't sleep on them. Granderson and Tex will be back by the end of April - middle May. Plenty of time for them to make an impact.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I'm not really worried about Granderson, but Tex's injury could be a problem. We don't know how the wrist will heal, but God forbid we get a Bautista situation.

Not to mention the bench is straight garbage (Hafner raking with his .167 :shaq). This is what worries me the most. Last year we had guys like Chavez and Ibanez, and a versatile guy like Swisher (Swish ). This year...

I'm glad at least one of us is optimistic Flex but bottom line, Cashman really FUBAR'd this offseason.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Yeah Yankees aren't gonna do much with a bunch of slap hitters. Cano is their only big run producer right now, unless you're insanely high on Youkilis (but he'll be hurt by the end of April, don't worry).

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I agree that they lack depth and the bottom of their order is rather unappealing. I think that the top portion of the order can play enough small ball to carry them through treacherous time. Ichiro returned to good form last year. He, Jeter, Gardner, and Youk just do what it takes to win. Everyone else, besides Cano, will probably struggle. I think Nunez has proven to be capable, but shifting his role constantly has messed with his head it seems.

Like I said, get through the first few COLD months, when pitching dominates anyways, you set yourselves up for a chance with the remaining 3/4's - 2/3's of the season remaining when your mashers return. CC, Kuroda, and Pettitte will carry them. Rivera and Robertson is as shut down as it gets. If they can stay afloat and go .500, they'll be in okay position moving forward.

Just my take.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Is he in Tampa again?

I remember him being pretty good for a few years in around '06-'09 or something.
