New York Yankees and NYC hookupsPosted in New York hookups, New York Sports on April 23rd, 2011 by admin – Comments Off
A New Era: The Yankees under Hal Steinbrenner 2010 wasn’t exactly a banner year for the New York Yankees, considering they spent a fortune, and the American League east only got stronger over time. The Mark Teixeira deal did add offensive impact and gold glove presence at first base ,but then again it set the Yankees back 180 million dollars also; and the AJ Burnett deal was an absolute disaster as he was easily one of the worst pitchers in baseball last season, with all things being considered, especially the prospect of New York hookups.
The real story however, is the evolution of the American League East. The Rays are still powerful with their pitching staff despite the departure of Carl Crawford, the young Baltimore Orioles have steadily been improving for some time, the revamped Blue Jays re-signed home run masher Miguel Bautista, and of course the Boston Red Sox had an onslaught of big signings including Carl Crawford and Adrian Gonzalez. Crawford developed into a five tool player down in Tampa with solid defence included, while Adrian Gonzalez proved over in San Diego that he can be a perennial thirty home run, one hundred runs batted in guy. Of course, with heavily weighted inter-divisional play, and the steady dose of New York hookups, the Yankees will be in tough to reach one hundred wins, as it’s debatable whether certain other divisions in baseball are half as talented; in fact, the American League East may just inspire commissioner Bud Selig to implement changes to the playoff format, the reason being to add a couple more teams into the mix, and to add a couple more New York hookups.
Another hot topic in the Big Apple is Alex Rodriguez, and he will continue to be, so long as he earns over twenty five million dollars per season. His production has slipped over the years, due partly to age, but he isn’t getting paid any less, and questions continue about his post-season production, as it has very much been a mixed bag during his Yankee career. It’s safe to day that he’ll no longer hit for .300, nor will he steal as many bases as hookups in New York do, but he’ll continue to hit out of the five hole and provide solid production barring injury. The real key is the pitching, and particularly if C.C. Sabathia can carry the team on his back like management suspected he was capable of doing so, due to his performances for the Brewers and even stretches for the Yankees in his first year with them. If he can have and earned run average under 3.00, and win at least 22 games, the Yankees should be in contention for at least the Wild card, as their lineup is still formidable, as New York hookups are.
