The New York Yankees were once the mightiest team in the history of Baseball. Since, they have declined. They haven't won a World Series, they haven't got to the Championship Series and lastly, they haven't finished in first in what appears to be ages for them. However, things are about to change... Brian Cashman has been fired, even though he was a stellar General Manager for the club, signing free agents like Mark Teixeira, C.C Sabathia and A.J Burnett in the 2008-09 off-season. Regardless, Nick Stevenson has been given a shot at turning the franchise around with beloved manager and former catcher, Joe Giradi.

Up next... Stevenson and Giradi announce the 2009 New York Yankees Lineup...

I do hate the Yankees. I just want to see how bad they'll be on Power Pros with their 2009 team.

A press conference is called...

"It is a tough decision to make," Giradi said. "I didn't want to disappoint anyone, but I agree with Stevenson, trading Alex Rodriguez is/was a fantastic move. If we kept him around, our chemistry would continue to suffer. He's out for most of the season and based on Stevenson's experience, he believes Rodriguez will not make a full recovery. I happen to agree. Now... fans, we have acquired Garret Atkins. He will be our starting third baseman. We received offers from the Red Sox, including Mike Lowell and Ryan Khoury, but I urged our new GM not to trade anyone to that team."

"Mr. Atkins.. we expect the best of you. We expect you to put up numbers that make us a contender for the division and you for Most Valuable Player." General Manager Stevenson said eagerly to his new player. After that, he walked away and let Giradi show everyone a picture of the projected opening day lineup against the Orioles.

"We have a solid lineup and a solid pitching staff. I believe this is the team to beat." Giradi said before following in Stevenson's footsteps by walking off.

*(#/#) is my opinion of how good they can be.

They always win 100+ games unless their pitching dies, my game always makes Joba the closer and Mo the set-up man but their offense is scary, especially in power pros

And nice start!
