I can understand the skepticism with Hicks, but when Bird has been healthy, he has raked. Many will point to the Yankee trades last year as to why they did as well as they did, but Bird coming back had a bigger impact than any of the moves they made. Even if Hicks isn't that good, the lineup is strong enough to carry him. Bird otoh, is very important. I'm very comfortable with the lineup and the pen. The Rotation is worrisome and while they have the chips to add a quality arm or 2, I think they messed up by not adding Cole for cheap. Chance Adams is not that good.
