    Yanks Officially Make Qualifying Offers

    Soriano
    Swisher
    Kuroda


    They can either take the $13.3m one year deal or we get a draft pick if they decline.

    The Yankees have announced that they made qualifying offers to Hiroki Kuroda, Rafael Soriano and Nick Swisher. Soriano and Swisher seem likely to reject, but there’s a chance Kuroda will accept.

    I hope Kuroda takes it and the others decline as predicted above.

    Wrong, Wrong, and Wrong.

    1. We do not know if Kuroda will accept. (We should hope he does)

    2. Even if we get Kuroda we still have the money and rotation spot for Haren.
    CC, Kuroda, Hughes, Nova, Phelps.... Seriously, you don't think we can bump Nova or Phelps for Dan Haren?

    3. Kuroda was better than Haren last season. I love Haren, but he's showing more signs of decline than Hiroki, regardless of age.

    On top of that, we might not want to trade any more prospects for a pitcher when we can try to retain Andy and Hiroki. The rumors already point to us having limited interest in Haren.

    The trade was already made but how was Cashman going to sign Pettitte, Rivera, Kuroda and then Haren and his $13 million?

    Nova and Hughes helps keep the payroll lower.....If George was here then yes but Hal and his mothball wallet run the show now.....

    Haren would be a one year rental.

    Well, maybe let's not bring Pettitte back. You talked about health issues in another thread. Andy missed more time this season than Haren ever has. And Soriano's opting out covers Haren's money.

    And let's stop pretending if George were here everything would be different Has payroll declined since George let the kids run the team? Are the new luxury tax rules not insane? Wouldn't any owner be hell bent on getting under that cap # to reset the luxury tax???

    He's a part time catcher at best.

    We're not offering Martin a qualifying offer, because he'd take it. It would be more than we could get him for as a free agent.

    I would sign him if he's willing to accept a 1 year deal...he could be the perfect dh/backup catcher...he can raise his stock and try to repeat his 2011 season... Could be a great fit at yankees stadium

    how bad is he kicking himself for not signing that 20 million dollar extension he was rumored to be offered?

    No to Napoli. Another slow, station to station, all or nothing guy, with zero defensive skills at any position. He struck out 35% of his ABs in 2012. Our own human strikeout machine (Granderson) struck out "only" 32% of the time by comparison.

    Im warming to the idea of bringing Martin back.

    He's still a better catcher than most out there.
