Obviously Jeter's the captain and was the real face of the team.

But for me, the "faces" of the Yankees in recent times were Teixeira and Nick Swisher  Smiley

Swisher was a great pickup at the time - true sabermetrics type move that was correct in the short term.

Although it was the right move and really set the Yankees up well, I'm bummed about trading Miller.  Guy was a class act all the way, and nasty on the mound.

I want Toronto or Tex in the AL, after that, anyone but Boston.  Price looks to be a BAD contract.  Love how Dombrowski traded their best pitching prospect for another #4.

maybe Dombrowski doesn't think that there's a difference between pitching in Petco & Fenway? haha

it'll be interesting to see what happens when Price has his opt out after a couple more seasons?  
if he chooses to stay in beantown then it'll be because he knows that he's being overpayed ...
and since red sox fans aren't too thrilled with him now, yeah, just wait for those last 5 years of his contract.

Exactly - a flyball pitcher should do extremely well in Fenway....lol.
