    IF this was to happen, no way Granderson and his 15 million go for Lee and his 75 million. Need something else to balance that out.
    Lee is also 35 in August. I just don't think the Yankees are trying to get older and more expensive..

    Plus, its time to let the kids step up and handle their business. Again, if you believe in Hughes, resign him now to an extension before he hits FA to a team friendly deal (5 yrs - 30 mil) and lock him up. I think Hughes with Nova and Phelps can become a good 2-3-4 behind CC. Cheap, young, homegrown and so far able to pitch in NY.
    Dude, there is no way Hughes signs for 5 years and 30 Mill. No way. 6 per?? thats not even a good reliever salary...

    Also no way the team heads into any season with Hughes/Nova/Phelps as a 2-3-4. At least not a season they expect to win anything.

    Phil Hughes projected salary for 2013 is 5.7M. He's arbitration eligible for the 2013 and 2014 season.

    I think a deal 5 year 51M dollar deal is a fair extension at this point. We can buy out the 2013 and 2014 years as well as keep him through the 2017 season.

    Breakdown:

    2013: 6M -- 2014: 9M -- 2015-2017: 12M annually

    This way we get, in theory, his prime years (26-31). He would still be young enough that if he pitches well enough during his contract, he can possibly sign another multi year deal after he turns 31.

    Just a thought.

    if nova is ever our number 2 we are in trouble. he's not very good, he only looks good because of immense run support he gets. he's basically the same as phil hughes at best

    everybody seems to be somewhat open to trading cano and letting adams play second. wasn't cano an option to replace arod at 3rd when he opted out? maybe thats an option they could explore for next year

    Hughes has been around since May 2007 in the majors.

    Joba since August 2007.

    Theyve had their chances.

    I'm not saying trade them outright but I would certainly prioritize a Lee for 3 years over them and Nova as well. We passed on Haren who wouldve fit the one year mold perfectly.

    I dont think we should pass this up. It unloads a troublesome offensive player (consistancy, not power, that is) and it gives relief to a still somewhat fragile rotation. CC was very spotty last year and who knows age wise what Pettitte will bring to the table.

    This rotation is one injury away from a shambles if we are not careful and I believe the old baseball axiom goes something like "you can NEVER have enough pitching."

    If you want to give the kids a chance, give Gardener a chance in OF but I wouldnt so easily dismiss Lee.


    And so, a new era begins.....

    Texas is on the verge of getting Justin Upton in a blockbuster trade with 4 teams.

    What a joke.

    Swisher is rumored to be going to the Orioles, (nice out field with Jones and Markakis), and if we trade Granderson, then Justin Upton or Hamilton is really all that is left with Ichiro waiting in the wings...any thoughts?

    Schierholtz Moving Toward Deal; Yankees In Lead

    By Luke Adams [December 5 at 9:27am CST]

    Having generated plenty of interest since hitting the free agent market last week, Nate Schierholtz is making "good progress" toward a new deal, according to ESPN.com's Buster Olney. Olney adds that the Yankees are the early favorites to land the 28-year-old (Twitter links).

    Schierholtz was traded by the Giants to the Phillies in the deadline deal that sent Hunter Pence to San Francisco. For the season, the outfielder hit .257/.321/.407 in 269 plate appearances. Despite a potential arbitration cost of around $1.6MM, according to MLBTR's projections, the Phillies elected not to tender Schierholtz a contract for 2013.

    F'n ridiculous, but that would explain why talks with Hamilton are on hold at this point!
