    Regarding RF, the Yankees could have had the switch hitting Nick Swisher for $13 million (his contract with Cleveland) or right handed hitting Justin Upton for $14.5 million (his contract with Arizona) in 2014 plus an occasional amount of playing time for Ichiro out there, batting left handed. Juston Upton might be worth the $1.5 million plus some alocation of Ichiro's salary when we want another lefty in the lineup (and not to mention some proration of Youkalis's salary to spell Texiera at 1B now that Swisher is gone) more than Swisher, but not the 3 prospects that it would take to get him on top of that money.

    Kubel's alright...not my cup of tea. Cashman ain't going for another lefty anyway.

    trade

    If I remember, upton had almost 200 k's last year. They don't need two batters in the lineup with 200 k's.

    Neither are likely for us. Only trade that makes sense for the Yanks is Morse, since he's right handed and will cost the least prospects

    Nope. 130s. He had 157 in 2010.

    ^ interesting simile. Although, are you saying there are a bunch of players out there like upton? Sorry to disappoint you, but players like him are not a dime a dozen. I don't necessarily like him or think we should trade specs for him, but I recognize he's a good player and would help us, in theory.

    well yeah if he was on our team and cost nothing that would be a plus but the price in money and prospects that would take to get him wont match what he brings, hes not an elite star hes just had the potential tag on him

    Well yeah, I'm not trying to trade our farm for him. We might as well try for Stanton in that case. I just would love to have him, at the right price of course.
