Do you change something that wins?
My answer is absolutely not, it would be stupid. If it ain’t broke, why break it? Why ruin a good thing?
In my humble, fan’s opinion neither should go anywhere.
The pair happen to be two of the largest factors to this years success. Moreover, they shined where it mattered most, in the World Series.
Both are just darn good baseball players, who can handle the pressures of the spotlight by playing the game the smart way.
The debating game between fans and media is just starting.
In my following two posts I will give my plea for keeping both thesetwo players. Mainly focusing on what they have accomplished this seasonbut in this case the post-season would give me plenty of reasons tofight with already.
*Please not that the Yankees also have Andy Pettitte but that is a no-brainer, that is if Pettitte wants to continue to play.
*Other players of note Jose Molina, Jerry Hariston, Eric Hinske, Xavier Nady and Chien-Ming Wang contracts are all up.
Molina is the only real possibility of staying in pinstripes. Cashman will probably stay with in house Francisco Cervelli showing he can play, hit and got some nice playing time in the bigs.
Nady and Wang will not be ready when 2010 begins so bye-bye.
Hinske and Hariston switch teams as fast as Damon stole two bases on the Phillies. Hariston can be replaced in-house and Hinske was never really used.
