What Me Worry? Guest Blogger Johnny Lopez aka Johnnyyankee

I used to read MAD Magazine all the time and one of the things Mr. Newman used to say was precisely that, 'What Me worry?" Well, we should not worry if Brian Cashman has not done any dealings, besides securing his Ace and bringing back Freddy for 2012. That we didn't go after Yu, probably the last guy any Yankee fan would think Cashman for sure would outbid anyone, so what? That he may turn out to be the second coming of Koufax, so what? What if he turns out to be the second coming of Igawa? Can't take a chance on something like that, besides Bobby V. liked him, meaning that the Red sox would go after him, but did they?

Some here are speculating that the Cuban Cespedes, the 5 tool player that everyone is salivating on, will eventually be Brian's target, once he clears his paperwork. If not, who cares?

What we really need is for Alex to have his usual great season. People forget that last season he was hurt, but he's the same guy that since he joined us has had great seasons, so if he should come back healthy, we wouldn't need to worry about not signing Pujols, Fielder, nor Cespedes. Also, if Tex learns the art of hitting to the left side, and if Swisher doesn't jump off the gate like he did in 2011, our offense will be set. Really, I won't mention Cano, because the kid is great. Sure, there's space for him to get better, but for now he will be just fine.

Why worry then that no signings have been made by us? That the Angels did and some other teams like the Marlins? So what? Lets worry then that all of the above concerning our hitters come through, and that we get great pitching from CC and Noesi, good pitching from A.J., Hughes and Freddy(?) and that our bullpen is as great as last year, that we don't commit so many errors, and MLB will be the ones that will worry about the Yankees. For now, what me worry?
