    Re: ESPN: Yankees out of the run for Cliff Lee

    Who? They already missed out on the top 3 guys.

    Clif Lee
    Carl Crawford
    Jayson Werth

    While the Red Sox added Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzales and will be getting back a healthy Pedroia, Youk and Ellsbury.

    Red Sox vs Phillies would be an epic World Series.

    I doubt Werth was ever on the Yankees radar and Crawford wasn't worth the money he got from the Sox for us with what he would bring to the table. They are probably looking for a starting pitcher via trade.

    Do they have the pitching to do it? They're lineup certainly improved but has the pitching?

    We had two Cy Young candidates last year....

    If Beckett, Lackey and Dice-K are your worst 3 pitchers you're in pretty good shape.

    The Sox certainly have the pitching to go all the way. What was missing from our line-up was a big bat or two. They've definitely taken care of that so far this offseason.

    Re: ESPN: Yankees out of the run for Cliff Lee

    I'm lost on how some fans downplay Crawford. What part of a Five-Tool player don't they get? Oh right, he doesn't hit 40 home runs..............

    Re: ESPN: Yankees out of the run for Cliff Lee

    The only possible stud I could see them going after is Zach Greinke....I think they are pissed now and will overpay or give up too much just to make a move and keep their fans happy....I love this offseason....

    Go Sox.....Yankees SUCK

    Re: ESPN: Yankees out of the run for Cliff Lee

    Gardner doesn't = Crawford, but he does offer some of the same production at a fraction of the cost. Also, where Gardner can't match Crawford (doesn't have the same power or a .300 avg for example), he is a better defender (the best LF'er in baseball according to Fangraphs...apply salt) and is superior at getting on base. One is a 2 or 3 hitter in the line-up, while the other bats lead-off. So yes, Crawford is the better overall player, but Gardner is (at this point) an extremely productive player in his own right.
