Being a die hard Yankees fan for my whole life and watching every single game, it's going to be tough for the Yankees next year. The big time players need to step up and take charge otherwise the Yankees have NO chance. They don't have any young players, and all they do is continue to spend money on mid thirty year old players. They had a chance with Peter O'Brian, but they traded him away for Martin Prado. They had a chance with Rafael De'Paula who was pretty good in AA, but traded him and Yangervis Solarte who was my favorite player and I was devastated. Gosuke Katoh didn't work out for the yankees after batting over .300 in AAA in 2013, he started out the season in 2014 batting .190.
Derek Jeter is leaving, but it's for the best. His statistics (batting average too) are going down every season. Jose Pirela has a chance to become the Yankees shortstop, but so does Hanley Ramirez, Troy Tulowizki, and J.J Hardy. I would LOVE to see Hanley Ramirez in pinstripes, being a partial Dodgers fan, Hanley Ramirez is one of my favorite players. The Dodgers are one the most fun teams to watch in baseball. Back to the Yankees. I think the Yankees need to bring up the young guys and put Sabathia and Teixeria out of the question.
The Dodgers have a bunch of young prospects and have a VERY bright future... All the Yankees have is money, and that won't get you very far.
