            Super Bowl? Did you say Super Bowl? The RAIDERS haven't had a winning season since 2003!

            • Peter Gammons: When Rodriguez distraction fades, Yankees can move forward
              Here's excerpts from an interesting Peter Gammons story about the Yankees. roof:



              When A-Riod's career mercifully comes to an end, he will have earned him more than $600M.

              ...Look back at 2013 and realize that through it all, with an aging team ravaged by injuries and sideshows, the Yankees had a run differential of -21, scored 50 fewer runs than the Tampa Bay Rays, patched a starting rotation that was 55-63 and still won 85 games and finished third in the American League East. The Wall Street Journal estimates that their ticket revenues declined by $60M. We get that. We looked at those lineups, we watched Phil Hughes start 30 games and total 145 2/3 innings.

              But as 2013 wasn’t 2012 for the Red Sox or the previous generation for the Pirates, so it is now history for the New York Yankees. It’s just about over, and as we saw that Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi could maintain a better record than half the other major league teams, they can finally move on. Threshold or no threshold, the distractions can fade away into real baseball, even if they have to order Rodriguez to spend spring training at the Orville Triebwasser’s House of Taxidermy, just south of Fort Lonesome, Florida.

              Yes, Robinson Cano is gone. Which reminds us that the top five Yankee home run hitters last season were Cano, Alfonso Soriano, Lyle Overbay, Travis Hafner and Vernon Wells. And they won 85 games.

              No one yet knows if they can sign Masahiro Tanaka, or CC Sabathia’s health or what to expect from Hiroki Kuroda and Ivan Nova, but the starting pitching can be a focal point, not a sidebar to the Cirque du Soleil that is ARod. We shall see what relievers may be added as safety nets for David Robertson, and whether Manny Banuelos or Michael Pineda develops.

              Unlike last spring, when Derek Jeter had to report to spring training without being able to work out after ankle surgery, he will come in conditioned and with motivation to add to his legacy. Mark Teixeira’s wrist isn’t 100 percent.

              Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran can be a dynamic outfield that uses The Stadium’s power spot and covers everything from right-center to the left field line. Brian McCann may hit 35 homers, and is one of those beacon personalities that will own the pre-and-postgame soundbites, as well as the respect of the pitchers.

              Is this likely to be a great team? No. But it is one without expectations, and, for once, one with far, far fewer distractions. Maybe at the end of the 2014 season, they give Clayton Kershaw the Trump Towers. Maybe after 2015 they sign two or three out of Jason Heyward, Chris Davis and Matt Wieters, who could divide catching and DH duties with McCann. By then, they will have paid whatever they have to pay to be divorced from Rodriguez, and, one can be certain, they will be moving on, trying to find who can be the Jeter and the Mariano Rivera of the next generation.
