    Baseball is built up the middle. I like Torres as a 2b. I like our pitching staff. Our catcher sucks. We donít have a SS. We donít have a CFer

Each year theyíve filled one hole with a top line guy and skimped elsewhere, that weak link cost us. Get a CFer, a SS and a good defensive catcher. The rest of the team is good enough to win.
    That's 3 big holes.

    There were years where the Yanks went "top shelf" on 3 slots or more in a winter.

    I remember the 2013-2014 winter signings. There were 13 players who declined their QO's. The Yanks signed 4 of them.

    Ellsbury
    McCann
    C Beltran
    Kuroda (basically, re-signed)

    2009 probably beats them all:
    Teixeira $180M/8
    Sabathia $161/7
    Burnett $83M/5

    These were the top 3 deals, by far. The next was Derek Lowe at $60M/4.

    Those were the days, huh?

    Now, we both sit back and watch the Dodgers be the Yanks of old.

    We donít need a Salvy Perez at C. We could use a guy like Gomes who can handle the blocking and pitch calling and isnít embarrassing behind the dish. We need better D out of our catchers. SS and CF, we need the whole package

    Frazier is broken. When the brain is irreparably harmed, itís time to cut bait. Feel for the kid, because the hands are quick and the talent immense, but concussions have ruined him

    Concussions are weird.

    It just took one too all but end the careers of Jason Bay and Justin Morneau, but Brandon Belt just keeps stacking them up and plowing forward…

    We are only scratching the surface of post concussion care. Iíve met people who cannot be in bright light due to their traumatic brain injuries. Those who have chronic dizziness, headaches, memory loss, personality changes, etc. if this kid walks away from baseball with a few million in his pocket and the ability to remember his grandkids names, he should be happy
