The plan is going to be Ichiro and a Hairston-type back up for OF ... they are trying to work trades but nothing is materializing at the moment. Be patient.. they've already offered Nova/Hughes/Granderson - so far nothing but they don't have to make all the decisions right now. There still is time.
i would bet any other big move the Yanks make will be dependent on Granderson

I wish the yankees were the ones in that 3-way with arizona and cincy giving up granderson. We could have had a very serviceable outfielder with speed in stubbs and get a possible front line starter in bauer. Maybe could have gotten more out of it too.
I dunno. But we don't want Lee we want the NEXT Lee.
Bottom line is we don't need to be taking on other team's awful albatross contracts. Lee makes 25 million over the next three years and 27.5 in his final year at age 37. HE WILL NOT LIVE UP TO THIS CONTRACT.
Have we learned nothing with Teix, Arod, etc? Trading for Lee is a dumb idea, the Yankees need to get smart not continue to bang their heads against the wall and bail out other teams..
