Raul Ibanez provided the Yankees with some great moments in 2012, but he will not be back with the team in 2013.
The 2012 Yankees were a lot of things, but consistent wasn’t one of them. After getting off to a slow start, the Yankees were faced with losing two powerful components of their pitching staff. After having a 10 game lead until mid-August, the Yankees’ offense fell asleep. The Yankees merely stumbled into the playoffs, but were determined to prove themselves. After defeating the Baltimore Orioles in Game 5 of the ALDS, the Yankees entered the ALCS against the Detroit Tigers. And in just four games, the Tigers proved to be the better team, and advanced to the World Series, while the Yankees watched the celebration from the visitors dugout at Comerica Park.
No one could have predicted the timeline of events that occurred during the 2012 season. As the year comes to an end, let’s take a look back at the most significant events that contributed the outcome of the Yankees’ seas...

The Seattle Mariners' logjam at the first base/DH/left field positions isn't getting cleared up much. Instead, it's getting more jammed. The addition of Raul Ibanez the day after Christmas means the field is absolutely packed heading into spring training, although general manager Jack Zduriencik said there is room for more roster moves between now and mid-February...

3rd time in Mariners Blue
It is pretty obvious that the Mariners front office realizes that something needs to change if they want to keep their jobs.
When the Mariners signed Jason Bay, I thought it was something that could be worth the risk. A change of scenery could be all the guy needs to make things happen again.
It bunched up the DH and outfield slots a bit, especially considering...
