Comments on: Sorry Mark Teixeira! The Yankees aren’t back just yet Baseball from a lady's perspective. Thu, 23 Oct 2014 07:11:40 +0000 hourly 1 By: @LadyLovesPins Fri, 21 Feb 2014 22:43:10 +0000 Thank you Steve!

The Red Sox farm system is loaded….I am jealous.

Regarding this coming season, I cannot reiterate more that the Yankees have about 12-15 great players and if they stay healthy all year long…watch out!!! But you and I both know that the odds of that happening is close to zero.

By: Steve Karsay Wed, 19 Feb 2014 20:10:14 +0000 Wow way to do your HW lol. I thought I was the only Yankees fan brave enough to research the sox farm system. Alas it is much deeper/healthier than ours…

The concerns you voice are very real we just hate hearing it. Cognitive dissonance 101 lol.

By: @LadyLovesPins Wed, 19 Feb 2014 04:48:41 +0000 Richard – Big Papi is a DH, which means less injury risk. And the Red Sox has a strong farm system and a second baseman…Mookie Best who went .314/.417/.506 with 15 homers and 38 steals in 2013. He is the ranks 3rd on the toop 100 prospect list at second base…and keeps getting better. So if Pedoria got hurt this kid has a ton of promise.

Much better than the Yankees options which consists of an injury riddled Brian Roberts, who spent his career with the O's but they let him walk.

Injuries are inevitable…..but the Yankees are starting guys who should be solid back-ups for the veteran players coming off of serious injuries like Tex and Jeter. The Yankees filled holes but dug others but that is getting masked by the new big names they signed.

By: Richard Wed, 19 Feb 2014 03:19:28 +0000 I'll go on record right now that you will be thanking Cashman for Roberts and KJ. You keep harping on injuries – nothing is new there. Imagine if the Sox lost Pedroia or Popi. It's a long season. Injuries just part of the game.

By: @LadyLovesPins Tue, 18 Feb 2014 19:46:48 +0000 Thank you Steve. Admittedly, I am trying to hide my higher hopes this ST because if injuries happen, the Yankees will be right back to using other team's castoffs as back-ups. Also, I do not think people realize the impact of not having Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning will be. I have faith that D-Rob can do the job but no one will ever be able to do it like Mo….but it won't hit fans until Enter Sandman is not blaring for the first closing situation in the Bronx.

Yes, I do have hope but I do not like the alternatives. I realize that last season the number of injuries was freakishly high, but if Tex or Jeter or D-Rob go down it will be trouble.

Pineda can be a real difference maker if he solid because the kid can throw heat.

By: Steve Karsay Tue, 18 Feb 2014 13:34:52 +0000 Fair points but I still I have a much more positive feeling coming into 2014 than I did in 2013. After watching the laundry list of 2013 scrubs (i.e. Stewart, Nunie, Wells) how can you not have high (or at-least higher) hopes?

2nd and 3rd are glaring holes however… I hope Roberts and Kelly have what it takes or its Nunie or "clank" time as I like to say.

Good post Kate, keep us Yankees fans even keeled. Lets get through ST without any ridiculous injuries first like you said.
