    Garrett Jones is the new Nick Swisher. He will find his way into the lineup a lot and take at bats from A-rod, spell Tex and Beltran when they need off and even take at bats from Young.

    So are you saying that the $50 million signing bonus recently given to Scherzer does not count toward the cap? I thought all bonuses did count toward the cap.

    Yes that is allowed. 2B and SS often play on OF grass. in fact, with my apologies, all 7 non-pitching infielders that face home plate can play anywhere within fair territory. I was just trying to...

    While I agree that MLB hitters should be able to hit / bunt / chop the opposite way on demand, baseball does not allow more than 4 infielders on the entire infield. If we are being fair about it,...

    I feel very sorry for John Sterling. However, perhaps he can now move to Florida and retire and start a new life. I can't wait for a new voice for a new Yankees Dynasty in the making in a few years.

    Yes. I've said all along that he is worth 3 /45, but i agree that you are probably right that some team might be stupid enough to give him 4 years. It is also possible that he is similar to Ubaldo...
