Sure, the Yankees just picked up Javier Vazquez from the Braves for the worst regular in their lineup. And while you may think they look unbeatable now, does this read like a quality lineup to you?
Jorge Posada, C: Is very slow. Like a sloth.
Mark Teixeira, 1B: Has never won an MVP award.
Robinson Cano, 2B: Has never drawn 40 walks in a season.
Alex Rodriguez, 3B: Home runs have declined from 54 to 35 to 30. What's next?
Derek Jeter, SS: Only four players have grounded into more double plays the past three seasons.
Brett Gardner, LF: OPS+ was less than league average.
Curtis Granderson, CF: Can't hit lefties.
Nick Swisher, RF: Not exactly Reggie Jackson.
Nick Johnson, DH: Has never hit .300 in a season.
CC Sabathia, P: Has never won 20 games.
A.J. Burnett, P: Led the AL in walks and wild pitches.
Andy Pettitte, P: Has allowed the fourth-most runs in baseball over the past four seasons.
Javier Vazquez, P: This ain't the National League, bud.
Joba Chamberlain, P: Posted 5.40 ERA in the second half.
Mariano Rivera, P: Was only a .500 pitcher (3-3) last season.
