    Any interest in these outfielders?

    I know we are constantly worrying about what to do with Swisher, Granderson, Ichiro, and Jones! What do you think of these free agents coming to the Bronx!

    Cody Ross Shane Victorino
    Angel Pagan Michael Bourn
    Delmon Young (who killed us!)

    Many are younger than Swisher, cheaper and a better post season pedigree!

    Pagan, Two year deal with option for 3rd year. 2/25 with option or buyout.

    How about some new blood in outfield?

    We need a new face to replace Swisher since he wants so much money, is getting older, and not a great post season performer of late. What do you think of FAs Delmon Young, Cody Ross, Angel Pagan, Shane Vitorino, and Michael Bourn?

    Did you really need 2 threads for this? Especially when we have an offseason thread?

    The answer is, of course, no.


    As for the options listed. Every single one is a downgrade from Swisher. We need to face facts, despite his post season performances, Swisher is a VERY good OFer. He's the 2nd best OFer on the market. (Hamilton) So maybe we can save some money, but we probably make the team worse.

    If Swisher is unreasonable, I like Bourn and Ross. I think Bourn will also be vastly overpaid. So maybe Cody Ross is a ok stop gap.

    Delmon Young is not the type of guy any team should want.

    I think they work the trade front instead of the free agency market

    There's a huge issue there. I'm not sure what we have for viable trade pieces. Most of our prospects who are closest to the majors suffered injuries and setbacks this season. So Banuelos, Romine, and Bettances have all lost value. I really don't know that this offseason is the right one to make a trade. And I also don't see some great RF option that should be available.

    agreed all the free agent options would be too expensive or would be bad signings

    There numbers stink in post season. Small sample size..but hardly better "post season pedigree"

    Age wise most are near the same age is swisher. Everyone acts like swisher is old. He's 31.

    Angal Pagan .188BAwith a .230 OBP
    Michael Bourn .167BA with a .167 OBP

    Good fielder, not great. League average hitter, so below average for a corner OF position. No power to speak of. I don't get the love to be honest.

    His position is CF though isnt it?

    I don't love him but wouldn't mind him if he was cheap.

    only OF i like is Sizemore that is out on the free agent market. But that is only to replace Jones on the bench

    And we need a RFer. Given that we currently have a LFer and a CFer, I'd assume anyone we sign is being put in RF. Heck, does Angel even have the arm for right?
