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.
[QUOTE=TallicaFan87;24602949]People also need to stop acting like we have the same lineup back from last year. We don't have a ton of all or nothing HR hitters.
The lineup is down Martin, ARod, Chavez, Swisher, possibly Ibanez. Thats 40% of the HRs from last year with no viable replacements right no
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
We need more Jeters and Sabathia's and less Swishers and Grandersons
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...
Bring on the platoon of Cervelli and Steward.

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?
