English: Hal Steinbrenner (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Just last week at the MLB owners’ meetings in Arizona inherited New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner gave fans hope when he told the Wall Street Journal
and New York Post, “Is our goal 189 next year? Yes, but only if I’m convinced that the team I see we put together is a championship-caliber team.”
Hal also said this about the upcoming 2013 season, “We’ve got some work to do still. We need another bat. We’re not done yet.”
Ok well at least Hal and I agree on one aspect of this off-season, except that I think an asterisk should follow his above statements because thus far I have yet to see the Yankees act like the Yankees.
See in order for Hal’s financial plan to work by 2014, the 2013 Yankees will have to suffer in order for this to work.
Hence, the reason, for GM Brian Cashman being basically limited to offering one-year deals this off-season.
Here is what the Yankees are on the books for in 2014, and remember this is sans Robi...
