McCann is a colossal upgrade at catcher for them in every way. I'm less than thrilled with the Ellsbury signing but he and Gardner (who missed most of last year) give them good speed on the bases and good range in the outfield. I would have preferred they kept Granderson and passed on Ellsbury because Grandy gives you better power for considerably less money, but Ellsbury is a very good player (if he can stay healthy) and hits for higher average. Cano is a big loss but assuming they add a decent replacement at 2B, sign another bat (Beltran, Choo, etc.), and have healthier years from Teixeira and Jeter, the offense should be improved. Pitching is the key, though. They need to add 2 starters.
