    Soria is willing to set up for Mariano Rivera?

    Make that happen. Now

    Please take the gamble on this one Cashman. This would have such upside.

    Josh Hamilton will be the biggest mistake of this offseason. He's on the wrong side of 30, constantly injured, and has poured insane amounts of bad stuff through his system. Anything over 3 years for him will be a mistake. And I'm shocked people think it would be wise to give him more. Don't like the way ARod or Teix or Mauer or Pujols is aging? This guy is in his prime and can't stay healthy. What do you think he'll be @ 36?

    Hypothetically speaking.

    If the Yankees did sign Josh Hamilton and he guaranteed you a 100 percent chance of a WS win next year in 2013. Number 28 in the bag for sure. But then 4-5 definite years of under performance injury and relapse after that, would you do it?

    Thankfully you have a different mindset. #28 is valuable but fans proposing Josh Hamilton left and right need to realize its just not worth it with all the potential baggage.

    He want's 7 years 175 million dollars.

    He hasn't had a full healthy season since 2008. Is a relapsed/recovering druggie/alcoholic. Just the guy for NY. Not.

    Yankees want to cut payroll.

    He's also a career .227 post season hitter. His OBS AT .295 is alright.

    One of the most streakiest players in baseball. Same people here who want swisher gone because he is streaky and is terrible in the post season, want's to give Hamilton 175 million dollars. Then they will be the people who will say signing Josh Hamilton is one of the 5 biggest mistakes in Yankees history.

    I agree. Besides Hamilton there are a lot of options for Outfield. Investing all of our coin in him would not be a smart investment at all.

    Trust me, I fell in love with Josh Hamilton in 2008 because of his Homerun Derby performance at Yankee Stadium.

    I always felt he would be a Yankee but with his ridiculous salary demands it's just not worth it.

    His shady past in regards to drugs and alcohol I dont even consider. He's a man of faith and I know he will conquer those demons.

    It's his injury history and his ridiculous demands for 7/175 at age 32 that make me say no.

    We can get someone else for much less and it would be a better fit.

    if Ross is only asking for this much it will be interesting to see if the Yankees make a play for him.

    You are all probably right.
    If he wasn't so injury prone and if he finished the season like he started it, then maybe there would be a different tone here. Was Fielder worth +$200M - no. Pujols - no. Arod - no. Hamilton not.

    7yrs is a long time when you suck. One ring wouldn't be enough for that contract length. Just ask Arod.

    I'd rather not handcuff our team anymore than we are. Get younger, get cheaper, get smarter.

    No, Ross is a product of Fenway. He hit .232 away from Boston. He struck out 27% of his ABs. Of the Yankees, only Grandy struck out more often.

    They have no SS depth at all with Pennington and Drew gone. Nunez has a decent enough bat and, important for them, doesn't hit free agency until 2017, so why not trade away one of the arms? If it's not Griffin, who would they give us?
    I'm saying they wouldn't because he's a young pitcher who was very good in his 15 starts and Nunez, though I like him, hasn't shown much of anything.

    And yes, no thank you to Ross.
