gonna be beastin
And on the best 1st baseman thought;
There are still a number of players that are better.
Pujols - agreed
Delgado - He is way pas his prime and definitively a far worse defensive 1Bman that Tex. The last 2 seasons Teixera also had better offensive numbers.
Derek Lee - They are pretty much equal. Tex is a slightly better fielder and D-Lee is s slightly better hitter.
Miguel Cabrera - We still have the better player in his possition. But his name is Alex Rodriguez. Cabrera is a 3Bman
Prince Fielder - Hits better for power, but the average is pretty much the same, also Tex is far superior defensively
Justin Morneau - Agreed, he is an MVP. Can't argue with that.
Well be more specific next time than
Although Gates owning a non American team would be quite a push.
same thing with Howard.. he's a dh type player, not a first basemen
i would like to have Pettite back but its not looking too good for him
but our rotation will be good this year we got 3 allstar potential pitchers(CC, Burnett, Wang) and 2 ace pictchers(CC and Wang) Hughes will have a breakout year with no pressure on him to be the "saviour" of our rotation and as for the last spot im sure they'll fill in well
Anything except winning the world series will be a huge dissapoiment for this team. And i belive they will dissapoint you.........Go Mets.
1. CC Sabathia
2. A.J Burnett
3. Cheing Ming Wang
4. Joba Chamberlain
5. Phil Hughes
thats sick although i would want Chamberlain to set-up rivera and eventually take over as closer
and we replace his 4 spot with Hughes and 5 will be Acever
Mets are one of the richest teams in baseball too...richest in the National league if not top 2.
And the Mets aren't in a division, the best (American league East) with the Rays and Redsox who are top teams in MLB as of right now, and a above .500 team in Toronto.
I love seein all the haters come out when the yankes flex there muscles with the money they got, especially managers/gms of other teams. Yanks have more money then they know what to do with, they don't care what the hell the economic climate is right now, as they shouldn't. They got money, spend it; make use of it. Is it in retrospect somewhat unfair that the yanks are spending 208 mil and rays i think 48, prob, but thats what we get for being NY. And as the Rays proved, you don't need mad money to be good. So quit complaining that they can do it and other teams can't, or how muc these players are getting. fact is the money athletes make has always been outrageously high. no human being is worth 180 mill or w/e arod is, he simply isn't. that money isn't fathomable. but he's going to get it either way.
I just fail to see how being rich leads to feelings of accomplishment. If the Yankees win the WS, who cares. They SHOULD. Its when teams like the Rays with a tiny payroll and nonstar players gets there that its actually something to worry about.
Teams like the Yankees, Mets, Cubs, and Red Sox should be in there every year with the money that they spend. No excuses. But it isn't anything to brag about with the money they spend.
Bout time we gave props to the teams that are like the Rays who are the ones that deserve it.
psh, lmao at everyone being jelous... Yankees have a smaller playroll than last year right now, so I don't think they are done yet.. I could see 2 or 3 5-8 mil players being signed!
It's baseball but then again it's also a business, whatever sells tickets, get's you championships, you do what you have to.
The Yankees should get my boy Manny, he wants to be home and has been hinting at it. I would watch almost every game if they were to get Manny, he is unreal at the plate, there is no one like him.
I wanted Manny on this team before Tex, I was surprised we shelled out the cash for him but it was the best move to do.
Come on Cashman get Manny on this team!
Pettite stop being a bytch and take the money you were offered!
Manny is an amazing hitter and will go in the hall of fame for his clutch hitting and if we ever got Manny, having Tex AROD and Manny as a 3,4,5 would be the best baseball has ever seen.
