    Man, I know it's only ST, but, this team is kicking some ass !
    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.

    Wow. I didn't know JEJ was a member of the forum.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    I haven't seen but 3 innings, but I am excited for the future.

    I am excited about the coming season mainly because of the young players. Even if they show weakness , I think this is the way to have a good team. I would like to see Torres stay with the club for awhile until Didi comes back. I think he has earned it. Didn't Jeter come up at the age of 20?

    Jeter had AA and AAA ball experience. Torres needs at least a good sample size of games in AA before the Yankees even consider it. I think he's legit as well, but I don't blame the Yankees in giving him more time.

    Melky was also brought up at age 20 for a few games but was overmatched and sent down. He had only a half season at AA at that point and wasn’t ready. Jeter was brought up from AAA at 20 in 95 because Tony Fernandez got hurt.

    if I remember right, he was also mashing AA and AAA and showed he was ready. Torres is definitely the future, his time will come.

    I don't think he was mashing it up that year but he was in 2006 so they called him up and he did much better at age 21-22.

    Yeah, Jeter was definitely ready for the next level hitting wise.
