Trade Alex Rodriguez to the Marlins (They would take on his $) !!!
Get Heath Bell take on his money. (Hope he bounces back to All Star form)
Get younger at SS and 3rd Base. (Nunez will play a big role)
Allow Jeter more DH time and rest (ankle injury)
Keep Cano at 2B (trading him idea is pure idiotic)
Have a potential Bullpen next year of...
Rafael Soriano (please don't leave!)

IF it was up to me , my decision .. bare with me would be Fire Girardi and hire .... Jorge Posada as our manager
why? it seems like these new young managers know how to get the job done ( mike matheny, Ventura )
ok maybe thats a little far fetched but in all seriousness fire Girardi and hire a NEW manager, one who has a feel for situations ( Gardenhire, Scioscia, Joe Maddon ) God i wish i had anyone of those as a Yankees manager. Maybe it is someone young or maybe it can be Tony Pena?
I just feel as in Girardi isn't the right guy ( For the Yankees ) IMO he is an NL type manager with his statistics and "Binder''
As for A-Rod if we're going to eat his contract we might as well keep him because at the moment we have noone we can put @ third
You can't blame him for what these hitters are doing because its just unexplainable. If anything you need to commend him for having the balls to pinch hit for Arod and bench all your star players when they arent performing. A lot of managers would just sit tight and ride or die with their big name guys because they would be too afraid of the fallout if they pulled them and got no production from their replacements.
So yea, Girardi is not the problem, its our overpriced ******** hitters that cant do a ****ing thing when it counts that are.
I wonder if David wright is on the Yankees checklist
I would have no problem with resigning Ichiro,then go with Gardner and lets see what Dickerson can do, I kinda like that kid.
Some other teams that make sense other than the Dodgers and Marlins are the Angels and Whitesox. Not sure what their 3rd Base situation looks like, but they are possibilities.
Cano and Arod for Stanton and Miller?
