    Geovany Soto is his proper name..

    But anyway..

    Really?

    He batted .198 between the cubs and rangers with a .270 OBP

    Outside of his one good year in 2008 and 2010 he's been garbage.

    His 2011 season was just as good as Martin's 2011 and 2012 seasons. His 2012 were abysmal but there's a good chance that his BAbip numbers revert closer to his career norms in 2013. He's going to be a lot cheaper than what Martin signed for and would be a solid option if we are looking for someone to split duties with Romine or whoever. He's a veteran catcher who is average offensively (for a catcher) and slightly above average defensively.

    He flat out turned down $4.3 million for one year without much negotiation so I'll guess that he's probably seeking more money and years. We would be looking at 2 years for $12 million for someone who batted under .200.

    I'd pass.

    He's in for a rude awakening if he thinks he'll get an AAV over 5M. He batted under .200 last year but I don't believe that is a true indicative of his talent level. If he can repeat his 2011 numbers (which is a definite fair expectation for him) in 2013 then he would easily replace Martin's production at a lower cost.

    No, that is the Yanks of 2002-2009.....these Yankees are now dumpster divers....

    Kind of reminds me of the Granderson trade....Then we will watch our young pups being successful against the league and us like Ian Kennedy and then seeing Phil Coke closing us out....keep the pups...

    Stay away from Upton...just resign Ichy and see what happens for a few months of the season..

    Nothing big....you do not understand the $189 million rule.....no long term contracts and that is what consists of something big.

    Unless they trade every prospect for the cheaper Stanton and Cashman will not do that....

    Expect Romine/Stewart to be catchers and Ichy to be the RF...

    No Off Topic Thread?

    That was easily the best thread on here and fun place to goof around.

    Is this prison?


    Jeez.

    Yeah it's a sad day. But credit to the mods for allowing us to do what we were doing for so long. Any other forum would have easily gotten us multiple bans.

    That is two more good years than the stockpile of garbage we currently have at catcher...
