MAX SCHERZER COULD BE THE YANKEE RESPONSE
You never want a knee jerk reaction. But with the Yankees, it happens, and after the Red Sox signed both Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval, my first reaction was... "Oh boy, here it goes... the Yanks will sign Max Scherzer just to look competitive."
Then, Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record, who knows a few things and doesn't get enough credit for it simply writes in Pinstripe Posts:
"Max Scherzer? Why not? As a Scott Boras client, Scherzer might expect to remain a free agent into January, when the climate might have changed enough for the Yanks to pounce."
I have no reason to doubt Pete. But here's my question... do we need Max Scherzer? Our pitching was fine last season, we just couldn't score runs.
As far as I'm concerned, the Yankees priorities are to re-sign Brandon McCarthy, sign Chase Headley before the Giants do, fill the holes of shortstop and second base, be it with youth or with Stephen Drew (I personally think Martin Prado is the most underrated part of the infield scenario) and bring back DRob for whatever he wants.
That's it. Bottom line, we have the tools, we have the youth, the bigger team could be us in the end.
Do you agree? Or, do we really need to go on another spending spree? Comment and tell me why or why not.
