Default Do the Yankees need Maartinez and R.Johnson????

I believe that if the Yankees get MArtinez it is goin to be a huge mistake. He's already injury prone and is not what he once was. He's only going to get worse as the years go on!! However I think the YAnkees winning the World Series depends on if they can get R.Johnson. They need a dominant starter and I don't think Pavano is up to the task. Playing in New York is differetn than playing in Florida. Mussina would be a perfect No.2 pitcher behind Johnson. Imagine this rotation: 1.R.Johnson 2. M.Mussina 3. E.Milton 4.K.Brown 5.J.Lieber



P.S. I think that Loaiza will make a great closer after waatching him in the postseason. The Yankees should sign him and make him aset uo guy and nurture him to be the closer after Rivera retires!!!!

I agree with you totally and love your point about loiaza. I was thinken he should get sent to the bullpen after seeing him in the post season. If he can do that all the time we will have no problems replacing Mo once he retires.

You do realize that Loaiza is only two years younger than Rivera and has twice as many innings on his arm don't you? Besides that Loaiza can probably get more money as a potential starter with a team who thinks he may be able to bounce back. There is a long list of teams who are interested in bringing him in as a low salaried starter for next season. I think chances are slim and none that Loaiza comes back to NY if they intend on moving him permanently to the pen.

Loaiza is only 2 yrs younger then Mo wow i didnt know that. Well I still say Iliked what he did in the playoffs but if we dont sign him based on what you said LOiza you were a disapointment since we got you even though I was very glad that we did but you didnt live up to excpectations.

Well, Loaiza's agent is claiming that Esteban was suffering from a tired arm at the break last year and the move to the pen gave him a chance to rest his arm and he was getting his velocity back in October.

Yeah, Loaiza has been milling about in the majors for a while he just did not have that breakthrough year until two years ago.

The Yankees need Randy Johnson. Pedro is very vunerable after 6 innings.
