Trying to get a sense of just how good the 2014 Yankees will be. They made a bunch of high profile moves with Ellsbury, Beltran, Roberts, and now Tanaka joining the team.
But they still have an even older Jeter and a big question mark at 3rd. Texeria could bounce back but I don't see how Roberts replaces the power and production of Cano. What other moves have I missed?
Are the Yanks dramatically better on paper?
- They still need one more starting pitcher to replace the losses of Phil Hughes and Andy Pettite
- They need CC Sabathia to return to his pre-2010 self
- They need a healthy Mark Teixera
- They need an everyday Thirdbaseman or atleast a good 3rd base platoon
Lots of holes. Lots of upside with the new additions.
I think they've improved overall from last season but not by much if Teixera doesn't get healthy again and Sabathia doesn't return to form...
