I love it when young players are in the mix. Anytime Giambi is benched is good by me and the outfield definitely looks better with Melky in center. Cano will hopefully keep getting better and we'll replace Abreu next year with a triple AAA-er and suddenly you're looking at a much younger team with a lot of building blocks for the future. (Did I mention Hughes, Kennedy and Joba?) But god help us if Jeter is injured for a long time; he's the Captain in every way and is the perfect mentor for these kids via his example.
