An interesting take on the Yanks offseason
Larry Mahnken over at The Harball Times has a very interesting look at the Yankees offseason moves. Larry is a Yankees fan, and is the author of Replacement Level Yankees Weblog. In the article over at THT, he basically vents about all the offseason moves that Cashmen and Steinbrenner have made. I hate the Yankees, and even I do not think some of these moves are that bad. Larry takes the opposite view. His article is a must read, and you can find it here.
Wade Boggs and Ryne Sandberg were elected into the Hall of Fame yesterday. I was a huge Wade Boggs fan, and it is always sad to see him wear a Yankee hat. Nevertheless, he was an excellent hitter and a great third baseman. I never read Dan Shaughnessy, because he usually is just bashing the Red Sox or one of their players. However, over at Baseball Primer, there was a discussion about his article on Wade Boggs and I did not see any negative comments about his article. I decided to read Shaughnessy for the first time in months, and it is a very good article and can be found here.
