To me it is going to happen. The Yankees are going to colapse. They have to many old players and they are signed for to long of a time that they are going to have a team were they are all 30 or 40 years old. They are going into a dynasty of loseing they will experence what all the other teams must face sooner or later.

Yankees Soon Colapse

Well I am going to bring back this arguement and here are my new arguements, first Raines only played with the team from 96 - 98 and also he played a good 4 years after that so I wouldn't consider him OLD like some of the old guys you have now ex) Pettite, Rivera. Also I know the team I know my enemy and my enemy is the Yankees. I will cover every position for you so I can show my knowlage of the Yankees to you.

At Catcher they have Fransico Cervelli who is not a quaility average hitter but does have some power and like any catcher can't run but he is not up to par with most other average catchers in the big leauges. An average catcher is someone like J.P. Arencibia of the Blue Jays or a John Buck of the Marlands. Cervelli will grow as the future goes but by the time he is in his prime all of the good players will most likley be retired or gone due to free agency.

At First Base there is Texiera and he may be out the whole season because he may have to have surgery on his wrist which would put him out for a long period of time. The back up would probally be Youk but then you would be stuck with puting Nunez at third when you need him to back up Jeter and Cano so at first would probally be Juan Rivera and he relly isn't spectacular either.

Second Base there is nothing for me to complain about other than Cano is a free agent at the end of the season and if he leaves than the Yankees will be in some trouble.

At Short Stop Jeter is coming back from an injury that will probally on average lower is batting average from last season about .10 points and also there is the age factor and by looking at history you will find that after the age 35 season that the amount the batting average dips increases more that between the ages of 28 (prime year) and 35. Jeter's average this year if he stays of the DL will be around .270 at most.

At Third Base there is Youk and A-Rod, in my mind even after A-Rod gets back Youk will still be starting or even if A-Rod does start then are you going to get $25 Million dollar production out of him. NO! This is going to be another weak season for third base no matter who starts because Youk is no spring flower either.

In the outfield there is Granderson who is injured and Gardner who relly was never relied apon like he will this season so I expect him to choke under pressure. There is also Ichiro in Right Field and the same goes for him as does Jeter his numbers will start slipping too.

In the Starting Rotation that is a above average one there is CC who is slowing down and Pettite who is old as can be, there is Nova who was mis-managed by Girardi last season because he never played that much, also there is Hughes who has done nothing special in all the years he has played and lastly there is Kuroda who is also old as can be too.

The bullpen is okay too, but there is some things that will have to be managed right, Boone Logan and Chamberlan have never been successfull in any roll you put them in. Girardi will also have to start auditions for a new closer and that will shake things up.

Overall I believe that after this season you will see what I wrote last year and you will be sad waching a Yankeelis postseason that I will love for many years to come!

Yankees Soon Colapse

Hater much?  Learn grammar.  "They have too many old players and they are signed for too long of a time..."
Loseing is not a word.  Losing is.

How old are you, 10?  The Yankees missed the playoffs in 2008.  Other than that season, did you even know what a baseball was the last time they didn't make the playoffs?  Do you even know when that was?  Answer: 1993 (there was no playoffs in 1992).  The Yankees '96 team had some old players too.  Tim Raines, Wade Boggs, Cecil Fielder, David Cone.  Then what happened?  Oh yea, they won the World Series in '98, '99, '00.

But..but..but, how?  Possibly because of a core of young players.  You know, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada.  And what else?  Yep, a large bank account.  The Yankees still have a relatively young core: Brett Gardner, Robbie Cano, Curtis Granderson, Phil Hughes, CC Sabathia.  And they still have a large bank account as well.

Sorry pal, you have nothing to back up your argument, just hate.  The Yankees are, and will continue to be, a dominant force in baseball for a long time.  Get used to it.  You'll be seeing Yankees vs. Red Sox games on Fox on Sunday nights for many years to come.
