Unfortunately or not to some, Youk was our best option.

i like youk and in the right enviroment hes gonna thrive so i expect a good season from him next year
This is what I get for falling asleep at 6:00 P.M. last night. I missed the news lol.
I love this signing. I think it brings some stability to this lineup. He should be able to thrive at Yankee Stadium. And on a one year deal, this is an awesome deal.
Hey if we sign Raul, it would make for a great environment....first the "Youuuuk" chants, than then "Rauuuul" chants. Baseball fans need to be more passionate and stadiums a hell of a lot more louder IMO.

Didn't the 1980 very old Philly team win the WS?
I like the move, even if they overpaid for him. As I read through the thread there are some that would prefer to cheaper options and keep Martin. Apparently, the Yankees believe Martin wasnt worth the 3 yrs. Maybe they are really thinking about AJ? Or that Romaine is close to MLB ready.
Yes just what this team needs.. another over paid player past his prime.
I've been out of pocket for the past 3 weeks so I've missed a lot but were the Yankees linked to Jeff Keppinger at all? I see that he signed for 3/12 with the White Sox. He's the guy I had hoped we might end up with.
