We’re talking about:

  • The late trend of treading water. It’s better than completely collapsing, of course, but the inability to get in a groove has been frustrating.
  • The return of Andy Pettitte and how he might get in shape for the postseason. But at this point, is he even the Game 3 starter?
  • The schedule the rest of the way. It’s easy, sure, but the Yanks can’t take anything for granted.
  • The crazy playoff picture. This would be nuts even if there were just one Wild Card.

    Nice job, but I think the following players will be gone next yr. Swisher (low ball to get draft picks) Soriano, Martin, Chavez, Ibanez, Susuki, Garcia, McGhee to the tune of $30 mil. If the Yankee system has a strenth it’s young outfielders. Teams are willing to give young position players an early shot (Trout, Stanton etc.). Expect them to give Flores, Austin, Heathcoat etc. an early look. One of them will replace Grandy the following year. With the exception of Cano long term deals for position guys should be rare for this team since it is stuck with bad contracts. As far as young pitchers go you have to be patient. Hughes is all of 26 and Nova 25. It takes time to learn how to pitch in the bigs.
