This is the end of an era. I expect that the Yankee front office is well aware of that and intends to reload over the off-season.

Given that Gardner's the best player on the team, and far from the most expensive, the extension was an act of genius comparatively.

True, but a lot of the success of the acquisitions was finding pitchers whose records belied their performance.

Jeter has been about as good as we could have hoped. That said, I'm glad his decision to retire is irrevocable.

If the Yankees somehow are still in the playoff picture on August 31st, it would behoove them to add the Lindgren- types before September 1st and cut bait on the nothing veterans they have now.
Commented on Yankees September call ups preview: Pitchers on Aug 6 2014, 4:09p
Yes, but most of the injured pitchers (Tanaka, Nova, Pineda, and now Phelps) are in their 20s, not their 30s.

When you talk about wRC, don't compare Prado to the MLB. Compare him to what he is replacing. Namely, Ichiro or Roberts.

Jeter is not enough of a power hitter to be a right fielder. He's only one notch up from Suzuki.
