The New York Yankees are in jepordy of becoming the most expensive failure since Pluto Nash, with a dismal 22-29 record at the start of june. Their pitchers have been abysmal, with the Yank's having to use something like 20 different starters in April, and Mariano Rivera is not Mariano Rivera. Nobody has been able to hit with any consistency (outside of A-Rods April tear) and the fielding has been     questionable at times.I think its time for Stienbrenner and the boys to consider perhaps a little rebulding?.They need to trade whatever they possibly can for some prospects and a few solid Major Leaguers. Damon still has value to some teams and is probably their most tradeable asset. Somebody would probably take Rivera (although i think he has been too good to them and will retire a yankee) and a contender might have some interest in, say, Andy Pettit 35 or Mike Mussina 40. They would be lucky to ditch Bobby Abreu for anything back in return, because I think he has just hit a wall offensively and can no longer "Do It".Trading A-Rod is a possibility, but I dont think they could get fair value in return. I sure hope that the Yankees try and build a new team instead of just buying one like always. By the way, we all know Rockets coming back and he will be solid, not spectacular, but a pitcher 4-5 games over .500, but not the savior for NY. What the bosses decide to do this summer will speak volumes for what their plans are for the future. Either they make some trades to get some prospects and start forging a new identity, or they stand pat and hit the free agent market hard this winter, buying up whatever they can, trying to patch the holes. Hopefully they do move some older players and start to build from the farm system again, but dont be surprised come next winter, George has his chequebook out ready to make a splash. But hey, thats just my opinion.
