Same family. Very different allegiances.
I really enjoy reading Joe Posnanski, but this article is a swing and miss. People continue to discuss the Yankees age as a problem. It seems that everyone forgets that from 2005-2008 this team was much older and they still were one of the top 2 or 3 teams in baseball in each of those years. This team is younger and has a more talent and a better farm system to hold up those older players. Yea they have close to $130 million tied up in 6 players (Posnanski failed to distinguish players with options not guaranteed years i.e. Granderson) plus a few arbitration raises, but $70 million plus is more than enough to fill out the remaining roster.
Oh and fyi, they have $50 million in expiring contracts after that season. Bye-bye Jeter, Burnett and Soriano.
