Yankees Need To Get Cliff Lee

Back in 2010, the Yankees failed to get Cliff Lee because minor league infielder David Adams didn't pass a physical due to a bum ankle and so the trade never happened with Seattle and Lee went to Texas instead and helped the Rangers win the pennant.  Lee, at that time, was the surest pitcher in baseball.  He isn't that now, at the age of 34, but the Yankees should still go get him.

Now Or Nova

Unless Phil Hughes turns it around fairly soon and fully develops into what Yankee fans thought he would be (this writer thinks the time has come and gone for him to do so), someone must take that spot.

You could argue that if you were to give a theme to the 2013 season for the New York Yankees, it would probably be "the good, the bad and the ugly." This afternoon's game at Comerica Park in Detroit was a perfect example of that theme, as the Yankees dropped the opener of a three-game set to the Tigers, by a score of 8-3.
