The roster at the moment

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Dec 24, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

As things stand right now, this is the roster …

Damon LF
Jeter SS
Teixeira 1B
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui DH
Posada C
Nady RF
Cano 2B
Gardner or Cabrera CF

Rotation
Sabathia
Wang
Burnett
Chamberlain
Hughes, Kennedy or Aceves

Bench
Swisher
Molina
Ransom or a utility infielder type
Cabrera or Gardner

Bullpen
Rivera
Marte
Bruney
Albaladejo, Veras, Robertson, Ramirez, Coke or Melancon (pick three)
Giese or Aceves

Meanwhile, somebody has to come off the 40-man roster once Teixeira is officially added.

There is a trade to be made somewhere. Here’s a rough list of expendable (at least some some degree) Yankees:

Ian Kennedy
Juan Miranda
Shelly Duncan
Nick Swisher
Hideki Matsui
Xavier Nady
Any reliever other than Rivera or Marte
Kei Igawa
Melky Cabrera or Brett Gardner

Meanwhile, Jesus Montero should dedicate himself to the Tony Pena School of Catching. First base is no longer an option. And stop aging Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada. First base is not an option for you, either.
