    I'm saying that we had too much of that and it reared its ugly head at us in the post season this year and we don't need any more of it... of course we don't have the same team back... we don't even have a COMPLETE TEAM right now as we speak!
    GO YANKEES!!!!!

If not, we're going to end up like the Mariners.
    I don't want to just pay guys because "well, might as well, don't want to lose them, even though it is likely stupid". Just get the finances in order, sign some solid, if unspectacular players, try and build from within.

    Make the big move when it makes sense. Instead of just wasting resources to keep the same mix together that likely isn't good enough anyway. This is such a weak FA pool to begin with, isn't accurately indicating what these guys should be worth. Horrible time to be looking to spend, actually very happy we aren't part of the overspending.

    Yes - I remember watching that team too. However, I'm referring to this 2012 NYY team in the playoffs... now that crap is just hard to watch. All talk no fight/no action team when it all mattered in the post season!

    what if Martins replacement hits 10-12 Hrs with 50-55 RBIs but hits .240

    wouldnt that be feasible for most catchers and somewhat an improvement and if you dont consider it an improvement wouldnt you say its at least a wash?

    My point is . not going to take a whole lot to replace some of that offense its not like the guy stepping in is going to have all zero's . As for Swisher what does it matter if he stays home during the playoffs. For me the Yankees are about how far they go in the playoffs not whether the make the Allstar team and he just doesnt get it done

    like I was saying 2012 was the most frustrating season I had ever watched and going into the playoffs I could see what was going to happen. didnt need a crystal ball to see that. So I rather see a house cleaning. I dont want to be a really bad team. I do not want to go through rebuilding but I do want to reload.because most of these players just dont get it.

    We need more Jeters and Sabathia's and less Swishers and Grandersons

    Depending on OBP and stuff that would be close enough to a wash. The problem is none of the catchers we currently have could most likely even do that. And besides Pierzynski there are 0 starting catchers available.

    We think that production shouldn't be hard to find, but for the Yankees it will be.

    I know there are actual free agent catchers available. Not seeing any starting caliber ones besides Pierzynski...

    Out of all those catchers the only one that intrigues me is Jesus Flores 1) young, 2) he caught the nats last yr when ramos went down and has postseason experience

    But in reality its because The Yankees right now need Jesus ... Swidt?
