Meh. Even if this is true, the Yankees still haven't addressed their biggest weakness - pitching. Sabathia is a lame duck in the playoffs and he's their best pitcher. Besides, Minnesota won't be in the playoffs for them to beat up on.

Hitting .261 this season. I can only assume that's going to improve in his new lineup.
Ichiro will definitely see worse pitching, so his AVG might pick up some; only TB in the AL East (and the Yanks) can match the pitching of Oakland, Texas, and the Angels.
Not surprised he was moved (there have been a lot of grumblings the last couple of seasons and he was likely not going to be locked into another long-term contract soon), but shocked that it was the Yanks. Cashman basically said they were holding pat at the deadline.
