I first must apologize for the wrong information I posted regarding Cliff Lee and his signing with the YANKEES. I can not go into the nitty gritty of how and why I got to the point where I felt Lee would definitely be a YANKEE, but I erred by misreading Lee.
However, being someone who is always positive and sees the glass as half full, this may be a good opportunity for the YANKEES to step forward in another direction. Look for some deals to be made, youngsters from the farm to be given a bigger role, and some of the veterans to step up and shine a little brighter. As the old saying goes, 'the tough get going when the going gets tough'. The playoffs are not earned by stats of individual players, but by WINS earned by all players on the team. All of the current commotion and ado can be pushed to the side and the team can and will move forward to the playoffs and beyond for yet another year in 2011. The best rise to a challenge, and we are going to be the best again.
Look for Andy Pettitte to come back for one more year, AJ Burnett to have his best year ever, the captain to rebound with a brilliant year, and some new pitchers on the block to step up. We will earn 28 in 11. And we will earn it because of the character and fortitude our team will display. We are WIN METHOD.
