Welcome home, Urban
Greinke about to sign with Rangers.
Hamilton will probably sign with Rangers.
Upton will probably get traded to the Rangers.
The Rangers should get blown up, I conclude.
I think we should trade granderson for the best package we can get. Either for pitchers or young fielders. Two guys i think the yankees should be taking a look at in other trades are Jason Kubel and or Garrett Jones. Both of these guys are 30 hr hitters and at Yankee stadium they could get 40 plus. That would more than make up for what is lost with swisher and Granderson and a fraction of the cost.
I also think Hamilton would put up 50 hrs easy at the stadium.
why are we not in on this kid Wilson from KC??
They say he's the next "can't miss" prospect in the OF.....based on budgets, etc why don't we offer a solid package to bring him into the fold
I hate the Rangers.

he will only cost 1-2 mil so why not have him come back as the DH

Procrastinating from term papers but why not go with an alternative smacked up view of things.
After thinking reading about it and thinking a bit more, though I don't favor it... I think a Cano trade wouldn't be the WORST thing to happen and judging by the 4 year offers Hamilton is getting, I'm sure the Yankees would be very able jump in and grab him. It would have to be a package that blows the Yankees away though.
Again, I focus on Texas - even though their lineup would be downright scary with Cano and he'd probably take it personally especially when playing against us.
Rangers Acquire: Robinson Cano
Yankees Acquire: Jurickson Profar, Martin Perez, Mike Olt, Jorge Alfaro
I'm begrudgingly adding in Youk to the lineup...
Hell since we are already this far fetched lets get more freaky...
Marlins Acquire: Mike Olt, Ivan Nova, Michael Saunders, Mason Williams, Jorge Alfaro, James Paxton, Adam Warren (looks to be an overwhelming package... hell even add in Betances for good measure)
Mariners Acquire: Curtis Granderson
Yankees Acquire: Mike Stanton, Ricky Nolasco (11$ salary dump)
Yeah, I went there... and tell me you didn't just pitch a tent in your trousers...

If u want to feel bad for a fan base, go on the Rays thread page. It's a ghost town of nothing.
No wonder they get 12 people a game.
