We need some youth on this team and we need guys who are Hungry! I'd love to see the Yankees go after Hamilton but his injury issues concern me a bit. Upton wouldn't be a good fit in my opinion
I wanna look at napoli victorino broxton madson and ofcourse would love to acquire headley upton or span
Pick up the option to Cano, and package him, A-Rod and hughes in a trade to the Marlins for Staton and scraps. Now that they traded Bell, they have cap room.

I am back. Mods stink. And the Yankees pissed me off. Oh, Swisher. Can't say I told you so.
I'll toast to that.

Again, The 90s dynasty Yankees is a standard that can't be equal with because those teams come once every 30 years...you can not use them...
And again, explain why Cano went cold after having good postseasons prior? They all got cold at the same time not because of relying on the HR but because they were pitched differently and never made the adjustments.
There is no simple formula....you just got to be hot in Oct.
Leo's Thought Of The Day
Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.
Holy ****! After reading some of these posts, it's going to be a long offseason. Have to make sure that I have enough Ibuprofen to last me until April.
Usual guys are fine. But some people tend to make some absolutely stupid trade/FA requests.
Hamilton is not signing for less than 6 years. It's looking like A-Rod is here to stay. Were not opening the checkbook like "The Boss" days, and getting rid of players and replacing them with virtually the same type of players is stupid. That is a CLEAR sign of making moves just to make moves.
Trade/FA wise, not including pitching, I like Span, and who knows, possibly Butler? Although that would probably require significant pieces to be moved. But if you're going to make signings or trades you do it for those type of players. Not an injury prone, recovering addict who would implode in NY. And sure, let's replace Grandy with B.J. Upton. That way, we can keep the high strikeout total intact and get about half the homeruns.
And enough with the Russell Martin hate. Who are you going to replace him with? A Free Agent? HAH, yeah let's make that position a little more like sh.!t. A catcher from our farm? No, and here is why. Sanchez is not ready, Romine, not so sure. Martin may hit in the low .200's, but you can pencil him in for 20 homers, and there was an article on ESPN that I read which said that Martin, just by the way he frames pitches, saves about 10 runs a year. It was stated he is the best framer in the game, and if you think that isn't important, well I'm sure you're posts would show why There is nobody better out there right now.
Swisher can go, and quite frankly if we can't get anyone via FA or trade who is better to replace him, I would love to have Ichiro back.

Guys that I don't think will be back.
Hughes- Traded. Honestly thought it would happen sooner.
Chavez- FA, although would not mind him coming back.
Soriano- Opts out
I see Phelps and Hughes as our two main trade bait pitchers. Not sure about Nova, but I'm pulling for him to be a solid part of this team. If not, oh well.

I Everyones dreams this happens:
Cano and A-Rod for Giancarlo Stanton and Josh Johnson
Hughes and Grandy for Justin Upton
This most likely wont happen. So lets be more realistic. Do I think they will make big changes? Yes...but not to this extreme.
I do think that Granderson could be traded and i honestly would trade Cano because he wants 10 yrs and after A-Rod contract im hesitant.
