How many WS will the Yankees win in a row this time?

Recommended Posts

More home grown players on the Yankees. Fact.

You cant spin your way out of this fact with your typical irrelevant rhetoric. You still tried tho, congrats.

Doesn't it make sense that the Yankees HAVE to have more homegrown talent because of the wealth of money spent on free agents? As much as Yankees fans would like you cannot have All-Stars fill out your bench and bullpen and end of the rotation starters.

That actually doesn't make sense. The Yankees have how many Hall of Famers on their team that they drafted?

Na max, none of the homegrown yankees contributed anything all season. All bench guys/spot starters. :yes:

Don't be afraid to comepletely spin what I said guys. I wasn't talking about the Jeters and Riveras of the world. I'm talking about the Gardners and Melkys. The Yankess have to fill out their roster with guys from their system that are solid but nothing pectacular because they spent so much money in free agents for their top players. It makes perfect sense.

Melky had a pretty good year. Gardner was a 5th outfielder\late inning defense\steal a base guy. In their roles, they were both pretty damn good.

You are way off here.

No. No I'm not. You actually proved my point, thanks.

Let me break it down for you:

Player - What they made in 09 (with signing bonuses)

A-Rod - 33 million

CC - 17 million

Tex - 25 million

Burnett - 16.5 million

Matsui - 13 million

Damon - 13 million

That's 117.5 million for 6 players. That doesn't include contracts for the original four {Jeter (20), Pettitte (5.5), Posada (13), and Rivera(15)}. If you were to include them that's 10 players for 171 million dollars. That leavs 15 roster spots. Given the Yankees are already paying a boatload of money to those players, it would stand to reason they'd have to fill out most of the rest of the roster with homegrown talent and therefore they'd have more homegrown talent on their roster. Now, I know money is no object for the Yankees, but it wouldn't be fiscally responsible to not try and bring guys the drafted into the fold to offset some of the costs of the other players they brought onto the team.

Make sense now?

So? Are you complaining about it? You sound like a Yankee fan whining that they never signed Miguel Tejada to play back up infielder. There have always been Ricky Ledees and Juan Riveras on the team. Some times they performed quite well.

I'm not complaining about it at all. My point was the Yankees always have a bunch of homegrown players on their team out of necessity. That's all. I'm sorry I had to go and actually prove my point.

Prove what point? You and Scotty must hang out in the same blank space of time. Again, maybe it will sink in...I don't give a crap what a team pays it's players and where they got them from...EXECUTION! And you of all people should know that from the 2004 season. The Sox don't "execute" after being down 0-3, they don't win.

Enough of the money ****...can't believe I'm debating a Sox fan whose team had the greatest payroll discrepancy when they played the Rockies.

Seriously, enjoy those 2 championships...I'm enjoying my 16 out of 27.

Nice rant. Too bad it has nothing to do with anything currently being discussed. Reading comprehension is not good in this thread for some reason. Again. If you don't care about the topic then don't chime in!

Good stuff. A sox fan telling a Yankees fan about reading comprehension...LOL. Okay, the original question posed by Max in this thread was...How many WS will the Yankees win in a row this time? ...my answer...two. Your turn...but, then again you went on your own "rant" a few times in this thread. Reading comprehension...good stuff.

I just responded to some other questions raised in this thread. That's not illegal.

And I don't think the Yankees repeat. They were very fortunate this season with injuries and it is very difficult to repeat in any sport, nonetheless one with a grueling 162 game season. A lot of it will depend on what happens this offseason and which teams improve themselves.

So you were arguing the obvious and made it sound so complex to confuse everyone?

Sorry everythig sounds complex to Yankee fans. ;)
