NEW YORK -- Hank Steinbrenner believes the Yankees are in position to repeat as World Series champions after adding pitcher Javier Vazquez and outfielder Curtis Granderson during the offseason.
The Yankees' co-chairman spoke with the Associated Press on Thursday in Tampa, Fla., speaking highly of general manager's Brian Cashman's offseason moves to bolster New York's rotation and change the appearance of New York's outfield.

"The two trades that Brian did, I was really pleased with and very proud of," Steinbrenner told the AP. "I think that is going to make a big difference for us."
Acquired from the Braves, Vazquez will slide into a rotation that already includes CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte, with the fifth starter still yet to be decided.
Yeah, like a platoon CF and a starter who's going to put up an ERA of 4.91 are really going to make the team better...
