lol?   Who was their captain from 1996-2002?  Or the first four years he owned the team.  Plus, there are a bunch of years mixed in between where there was no captain.

And there was also like a 30 year drop off of no captains until he bought the team. Theres been a bunch since hes owned the team. I think that tells us something.

If you want to play semantics, yea, theres a couple years sprinkled in between each captain. Does that mean theres gonna be decades passing between captains after jeter is gone? Highly unlikely. We know what this ownership is about. They sell mystique. End of story.

Six years is a decent stretch.

All my point was that there is not always a captain.  It's generally someone of significance and respect.  I don't know who fits that mold after Jeter.  Rivera would easily, but he'll be out at a similar time.

Hey, you never know. That was my point really. Montero is a homegrown guy. If he turns out to be a stud with his bat, and he represents the yanks off the field as good as he does on it, you never know.

True.  But I know nothing about the guys ouside of of baseball-related stuff.  Never even heard him speak.

He's supposed to be a hitter along the lines of Heyward, etc...

Jenks to Boston. Not a bad pick up for Theo. Just 2 years and no draft picks. Boston has 3 potential closers who can work the 7th-8th-9th innings. Although something tells me Paps may be gone.

Cheap too.

I wouldn't mind a little overspend on R Soriano for NY right now.  But, I may change my mind in a few hours....

the mets are noteably absent from all talks here and on mlb boards are they just giving up, or just standing pat with the bad hand that they dealt themselves. k-rod  bust santana burn out beltran diaster, no real need to go on. attendance sucks.

He's going year to year via arbitration, and he has said on numerous occasions that he wants to be the best closer in the game, and to be paid like it as well.

He's good, and he's still a top closer, but his throwing style and lack of pitches will never allow him to be the "best in the game" (over a long period of time). He  wants huge money and a long term deal; the sox know this...hence why they will eventually let him walk or trade him.

Pap's problem is that he was so good, so quick, people expect him to be lights out 100% of the time.

Thats a major piece of the Yankee's puzzle. They had to do something and that might be the move that keeps them in stride with the Red Sox.  Should be a very interesting year for both teams.

lol!!!!

I like the addition.  It helps the team.  The money's insane for a middle reliever, but I think the idea might be that they hope he opts out after year 1.

I would like to see them use this as a way to get Chamberlain back into the starting rotation, but they've been standing firm on not doing that, for some reason.

Great 4th OF.  Still destroys LHP, and is a defensive upgrade from Thames.

guy is only 33 won't be 34 till end of april  and hit 19 homers in 278 at bats with a decent obase pct. yanks made a good pick up. he could be a major player in the right hands read good coaching with the proper motivation.

Yup.

He could also be a replacement should the Yankees have to swap Gardner in a trade for a SP or if Gardner's wrist injury from last year has not healed.

I used to really like Manny, all the way until he got to Chicaco last year.  Now I think he's a bum.

Tampa will not fall off a cliff like many have said.

NEW YORK -- The Core Four is now down to We Three.

As many expected since the New York Yankees' 2010 season ended in disappointment in Texas, Andy Pettitte will officially announce his retirement at a news conference at Yankee Stadium at 10:30 a.m. ET on Friday.
