The Yankees have now signed A.J. Burnett, to go along with C.C. Sabathia. Reports are 5 years $82.5 Million. I'm cautiously optimistic about both of these deals...it could go either way. But the starting rotation looks pretty good on the illustrious "paper"

Sabathia
Burnett
Wang
Chamberlin
Hughes or Kennedy.

Of course since the Yankees had approx. $88 million coming off the books, they haven't even spent half of that yet. Stay tuned...

The rotation will look good, but I highly doubt it's going to be that list. After C.C., A.J., & Wang, it's still way up in the air. Pettitte's definitely going to play for Yanks, if he comes back. It's just a matter of the two sides agreeing on how much. I hear the Yanks are still going to go after either Lowe or Sheets. Chamberlin has to go back into relief, setting up Mariano IMO because for all the they have put in for starting, it's going to go into crap if they don't strengthen their bullpen. And Hughes or Kennedy may start (I'm thinking more likely Hughes), but the Yanks may rather try to use one of them for long relief or just trade them away.

The Yankees are very good at putting together a good team on paper.

I think I would prefer to see Joba in the bullpen as well. He can pitch the 7th and 8th and eventually replace Rivera.

For as much as they talk about Rivera being irreplaceable, they're not going to appreciate him until he's gone.

Are you kidding me? Anybody who can break down the heart of an order into a puddle of melted popsicles in the bottom of the ninth when you're only up by 1 will be noticed and appreciated thoroughly. Isn't he still the highest paid reliever/closer in baseball?

*Furthermore, the whole stadium sings along to Enter Sandman when he comes out. More people sing Enter Sandman in Yankee Stadium than the national anthem.

I have to say I always find people who hate entire groups of fans to be rather ridiculous. I didn't like it when the Yankees became the Evil Empire, and I don't like it now with this mindless Boston hate from everyone outside of NYC.
