Me too, but he would get at least 3 from the Sox or others...
Has anyone else read the report that Hiroyuki Nakajima is in play for the Yankees for 3B...this is the same Japanese player that they Yankees could not come to agreement with after winning the rights to negotiate. Sounds promising....
Dee Gordon - Are you guys kidding? If he is anything like his father - he would be up in a pressure situation & he'd wet his pants!!!!
Jeter 2B/DH (DH until Arod returns)
TOTALLY different lineup from last season. I would love it.
One can dream.
I like Reynolds for the spot too. He adds right handed power that they need, he plays 3B/1B and can DH. I think Shierholtz should be signed as a 4th outfielder. And i have a gut feeling that Cashman will surprise as with a semi-big trade. Cody Ross is not a bad idea in RF if they limit him to 3 yrs at most. For catchers i would love a trade for Ryan Hannigan. Maybe sign AJ and have Hannigan back him up, or maybe a platoon at C with maybe Hannigan and Jaso. RF is a big ? mark though and i really dont know what they will do. I think i read somewhere (maybe mlbtr) that Justin Upton was in play for them, but i dont know how likely that is...same with Stanton. Of course Jim Bowden tweeted that Hamilton was an option...
rather have Upton but Kubel is a good bat to have in the lineup
It makes me angry but just to correct such an obscene lineup:
Andrew Marchand tweeted: Day2: Josh Hamilton, $189 & "possible"!!!
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Diamondbacks have been involved in trade dialogue involving Jason Kubel.
Could it be with us ?
Kugel has an eh BA with pop so he makes sense as a target.
I can't believe somebody suggested signing Drew And Keplinger and ditching Cano. Geez I'm all for a team makeover but that's a bit extreme.
Sign Dan Haren...Pitching is most important and with CC showing signs of decline, Yanks need to reload. That's a 1...2 punch most orgs don't have. Push Kuroda to the 3 and Petitte to the 4....Not worried about offense.
Thoughts of the same exact pitching staff completely bore the hell out of me. Here's the smartest thing I've ever heard Curt Schilling say: " A quality start in the playoffs is usually a loss". Love that. Yankee staff is full of potential quality start guys which is why we win 90+ games but i think you need that extra something in the playoffs and I think Dan Haren is exactly that....
