I'm not ready to give up. The Yankees survived the 80's, and they can survive this (despite the gloating of the Yankee-haters). Sure, the Yankees might not be "dominant" anymore, in that sense, but what the hell do I care? Real fans - of any team - will like them even if they're at the bottom of their division. I'm trying not to let the gloating get to me.
Signing Tanaka would definitely help, I'll grant that much.
