    Your 2013 New York Yankees

    Or: When Keeping It Real with Expensive Stars Goes Bad

    I saw the Yanks called up a fellow named Zoilo Almonte, and I was inspired to create a thread about the 2013 Yankees, a team decimated by the injuries (and re-injuries) of Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Kevin Youkilis, Francisco Cervelli, Eduardo Nunez, etc. Of course, they still have some notable fellows who aren't injured (yet), namely Robinson Cano, Vernon Wells, Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki, and Travis Hafner on offense and a generally healthy rotation, but here are the other guys who have ranged from regular playing time to brief stints since April 1 for the Bronx Bombers.

    Position players
    Chris Stewart
    Lyle Overbay
    Jayson Nix
    David Adams
    Reid Brignac
    Austin Romine
    Alberto Gonzalez
    Corban Joseph
    Thomas Neal
    Brennan Boesch
    Ben Francisco
    Chris Nelson

    Pitchers
    Preston Claiborne
    Adam Warren
    Vidal Nuno
    Brett Marshall
    Cody Eppley
    David Huff
    Chris Bootcheck

    A few guys on the 40 Man they could call up
    Manny Banuelos
    Dellin Betances
    Jose Ramirez
    Nik Turley
    Ramon Flores
    Melky Mesa

    And there's still 90+ games to go! They even just acquired former OF prospect/total dud Fernando Martinez for AAA depth. It's a bizarre train wreck and I want to see them go all out with these guys off the scrap heap and rookies 95% of people have never heard of.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
