With each passing day, it looks more and more as though the 2010 Yankees’ are set. And although many fans — myself among them — secretly hope Johnny Damon will return to planet Earth and sign with the team for a modest amount so both sides can repeat this year, that’s not even the direction the rumors are headed in anymore. What we see, with the exception of some minor tweaks, is probably what we’ll get. And as we’ve broken down here and here, what we should be getting is an excellent baseball team.
What is known is that the Yankees got considerable production from two of the 3 players they’ve lost. They appear to have replaced that production (and I’ll go so far as to say improved upon it, as the likelihood of Matsui and Damon repeating their 2009 efforts are slim) but next year’s squad won’t hit as many home runs as the 2009 guys. In order for Johnson and Gardner to be productive they’ll need to get on base, and have others in the lineup knock them in. That’s a big change from an ’09 team that featured a lineup full of double-digit home run guys.
