    Why block Montero doesn't make any sense

    If we're in the bottom of the 9th, runners on 1st and 2nd with 2 outs and we're down by 1...of the following players who do I trust most?

    Arod
    Tex
    Granderson
    Cano
    Papi

    It is very close between Cano and Papi and they leave the other top players on the Yankees in the dust. Papi would make our team real dangerous.

    It does if you're trying to win now, and now who says we have to block him?

    Montero could play C. He might not be a good one but he can play there.

    No thanks, I just couldn't see them pursuing Ortiz after being on the other side for so long. I also want to see Montero more involved in the lineup next season by splitting time at catcher and DH. That wouldn't be able to happen if Ortiz occupied the DH spot for most of the season.

    If we are thinkin about getting Ortiz than why not go after Prince and let him DH and turn to Barry Bonds with that short RF porch

    No.

    Why? Another aging, fat, vocal bafoon. We need the DH spot open! So the "permanent" DH has to be versatile and able to play field when needed to.

    That is one scary lineup. It is such a tempting idea. If Montero could be full time catcher next season...wow. Could you imagine trying to pitch against this stacked line up...good God.

    Actually....not to be a stinky fun killer here, but that lineup is old.

    You're looking at possible regression from Jeter and Papi. Continued regression from Big Tex, A-Rod and Swish. Grandy played out of his mind this year, but can he continue it? You're counting on a rookie catcher who, while a monster, is still a rookie.

    I'm sorry, but the only one in that lineup I fully trust to give me excellent numbers next year is Robbie.

    Thing is, I love Papi, always have and always will, but the fac tof the matter is it is our collection of youth and aging veterans that keeps the Yanks from falling off too much. The thought of Papi dropping bombs on the creatures is drool inducing, but Papi is just too old and removes all lineup flexibility that Joe G. has.

    It's a Steinbrenner move. Pure and simple. If it happens, it comes from Hank, not from Cash.

    My word.

    There are firsts to be had in the world of prosportsdaily.

    I'm actually going to agree 100% w Krixsong on this.

    Ortiz on a short deal could be deadly AND clutch in the midst of that order. The Steinbrenners went against Cashman's wishes last offseason and signed Soriano as what is speculated as a reactionary signing in order to give the appearance that we were indeed active in the offseason. This move would pay far greater dividends if we are still using that mindset. In addition, it would probably signal the ultimate cadence to the on-going collapse of 'the nation.'

    I say do it if for no other reason than that.....


    And so, a new era begins.....

    Boston Media is KILLING the Sox LOL!!!! They did it to Ted Willams, Yaz, Remember Jim Rice refused to talk to the Boston Media all of his career? Roger Clemens had a problem, Nomar had it on the way out the door. Pedro, Papi and Manny had their trouble. And now Beckett, Lester and Lackey and most of all Tito Francona, it's disgusting that the Boston Media would talk about his personal life, just because he didn't say it was his choice and take the heat off the Boston front office.

    That's a bad sign for the Sox, when your heart and soul says he admires "the enemy" and how they are treated by their club and respect. And he HATES the drama on his own team and might keep him from signing there and he would consider signing with your worst rival! HAHAH!!

    Bad days in beantown!!!

    I beat CC will think twice about opt'in out and going to Boston!! He might opt out, but it won't be Boston..Or anyone for that matter, what a mess!!!
