OK the winds are swirling about the AJ Burnett deal to the Pirates. So I guess I'll get caught in the wind myself. Like I said. Can't see it. AJ makes to much money....The Pirates ? They don't have any money !! Maybe, Maybe !! If the Yanks pay more than half of the $ 32 plus million he's owed the next 2 years. And for who ? Garrett Jones and 4 prospects ? Don't get me wrong, Jones is a decent player but they don't need another left handed hitting outfielder/first baseman. Uhh ? didn't they just sign Russell Branyan ? Yes. So that will put an end to the Johnny Damon, Raul Ibanez rumors. I could be wrong maybe it will happen but to me it's just fodder to sell papers, check web sites, watch TV and hmmmmm, read this blog.
You can never have enough pitching....good or bad.
I worry about pitchers staying healthy. Is CC going to be over worked ? Can Pineda handle NY ? Can Nova repeat last year ? Hughes starter or bullpen ? Kuroda ? 1 year $ 10 million for a guy who just turned 37 the other day. Sure he pitched well for LA but that's the little boys league. Now he playing in the Mens League. The AL East. So like I said you can never have enough pitching.
Stay tuned for my pitchers and catchers spring training reports. Coming real soon opening day roster and 2012 predictions...Go Yankess !!
