Hughes in rotation
Well, we keep discussing Yankee matters in topics that are player specific so i thought to open a thread that is more team oriented.
First of all great free agent signings. We addressed our greatest need which is the rotation with 2 ace like starters in CC and AJ. Also bringing Andy back was the smart thing to do especially at the price tag we got him.
Joba should be a starter no question about it. he has electric stuff and will be anchoring our rotation in the future. I hope Wang comes back from injury without any major issues as we know usually pitchers coming back from long rehabilitations struggle.
1) CC Sabathia
2) AJ Burnett
3) Chien M. Wang
4) Joba Chamberlain
5) Andy Pettitte
As far as the line up goes the major addition is Texeira. We needed a big time 1B to cover up the void left by Giambi and we got not only a premiere hitter but a first class defender as well. Put him on the 4 slot behind A-Rod and the lineup gets a major bust of confidence. Hopefully Damon will be able to be his old self and perform well as a lead off hitter. jeter should be our number 2 hitter. From 5 and up it is really up in the air. Possada should be back, hopefully Cano can bounce back from his down year as well. Nick Swisher should be a great insurance policy in the outfield where i would keep Damon platooning with melky at center and Nady and Matsui in the corners with Swisher filling in here and there.
The line Up:
C Jorge Posada (Batting 5th)
SS Derek Jeter (Batting 2nd)
1B Mark Texeira (Batting 4rth)
2B Robinson Cano (Batting 6th)
3B Alexander Rodriguez (Batting 3rd)
LF Xavier Nady (Batting 7th)
RF Nick Swisher (Batting 9th)
CF Johny Damon (batting 1st)
DH Hideki Matsui (Batting 8th)
hope this team feels good taking over and now playing on what was once a child's playground.
the greatest stadium built for any sport of alltime
yeah, childs playground
so let me guess, you must not live anywhere near Yankee Stadium?
Anybody get any tickets yet for this year?? Anyone got anything in mind? I deff want to hit up both new stadiums this year in the inaugural season.
There is no reason to go to Citi Field. I repeat there is no reason to go to Citi Field.
Children play ground or not this is indeed the best stadium billions can buy. I am pretty sure they will find a place for kids to play.
Yankees vs Mets in new yankee stadium
Mets vs Yankees in citi field
Yankkes vs Red Sox in new yankee stadium
Yankee tickets are so much money so the best games to go to are teh Ranger, Rays, Orioles, games etc....its not even worth going to a Yankee/Boston game...the cheapest ticket is a bleacher ticket for like 60 bucks.
ima deff cop me some tickets.
Its a virtual view of how every single seat would look if you were actually sitting and watching the game to check what seats are really better than others, so you don't get screwed when you go to the game.
Check this out while your choosing tickets...i guarantee it will help you out.

And when looking at tickets just find the games that go for $13 cheapest tickets and you can get a good seat for around 80 and up.
If the Yanks face a good team your almost throwing money away.
