I want to say I like the approach, letting Cano go instead of giving him 250 million.  But they are paying money out elsewhere by the truck load, that always scares me.

 

They will be better next year but will they have the starting pitching to win the division?  How will the bullpen hold up without Mariano?

Tanaka coming, he hired Jeter's agent and Pineda should finally be back adding a young power arm. I also have to assume C.C. can't be that bad again. I'm somewhat optimistic about what the opening day rotation could look like.

What's the deal with Tanaka?  I heard about that but real life has kept me from looking it up.  He can sign with any time?  Or is it that normal bidding process?

And Pineda ... was so excited about him 2 years ago.  If he comes back and stays healthy that cut put them over the top.

He was posted by his team yesterday. The old rules where the team that bid the highest in a closed bidding process got exclusive rights to negotiate like when the Rangers bid 56 mil for Darvish. The new rules are the posting bid is maxed out at 20 mil for his Japanese team and anyone willing to pay that can negotiate so he's essentially a free agent and teams have till the 24th of January to work out a deal. He hired Jeters agent and the Yankees are already in contact so I got my fingers crossed, the rotation obviously looks much better with him.

Thanks.

 

One question, the 20 million, does that get paid by everyone who wants to negotiate?  Or just by the team that signs him.  Pretty wild if that is what you pay just to talk to him.

Just the team that wins, better for the player for sure. I think Darvish got like 10 a year. Now with teams bidding against each other I'm reading his deal will be 17 per minimum.

I also don't normally get that excited about their pitchers cause they work backwards with off speed stuff. This guy works off a really great split finger fastball so I think he can transition right away.

Yankees even with Tanaka, which isn't guaranteed, still have major questions throughout the pitching staff. I think they'll be much more competitive than they were last season though. Will challenge the Sox for the AL East again.

The AL East is going to be tough.  No easy games in that division.

This. A healthy Toronto team would be in the mix and Baltimore and Tampa both have the potential to put together monster seasons.

 

I'm excited about the prospect of Tanaka on the Yankees. I'll believe in Michael Pineda when I see it. It's a whole new bullpen world with Mo gone. I'm a big fan of D-Rob, but the ninth inning will no longer seem automatic.

 

Does Boston fall off with the loss of a couple of stars? We'll see.

Ellsbury is injury prone and sucks.  :)

 

Els is the only real loss.  Jackie Bradley should be an adequate replacement for Ellsbury.  More so in 2015, but he should be able to fill Els shoes defensively now and should produce similarly offensively...eventually.  Even if he does not,  Victorino, Gomes, Nava and Carp can replace Els bat.  The guy that legs out 2B/3B/Steals...not so much.

 

Xander Bogarts should be a plus bat over Drew, but is not there defensively.

 

The good thing for the Sox, the pitching will keep them in games. 

 

Boston Strong is over...as is the beards.  They will be good, but they could be over .500 and finish in last place.
