Spring training snapshot of the 2013 yankees this team could win five games it for the answers. When the world and why he says that so confidently. Because there's a lot of -- that room. You know I've heard a lot of discussions about you know the Yankees didn't make your free big free agent splash this year. Well we didn't necessarily. Outside of the people that we were all very aware of that were important parts of our club. You know. A rookie Kuroda was dodger last year and signed with the with the you know we think that's pretty good pretty big time. If any that it was. An Astro we signed to back that would have been a pretty big -- If Mariano Rivera was. I don't know where Mo would have been if he was somewhere else we signed you know the greatest closer of all time that's a pretty big signs so I think. Sometimes of people that we signed. We kind of overlooked. Them because they've been around here so much those are pretty exciting. I know they're not long term deals. But they are extremely important. To our club so I believe we're still -- very talented club that won 95 games last year. And with the best record in the the American League now. I know we didn't get it done in the playoffs. But you win a 105 games. And not win the playoffs that doesn't mean that you weren't a good team. And there are. Teams that made big splashes. In the free agent market last year were expected to win the World Series and get the playoffs and didn't even get there so there's no guarantees. I'd love the people we brought back because I know they're tested and I know they know how to play in new York and I've seen him have success in new York and to me that's real important.
