Now the Series is in the bag … or trunk

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Dec 30, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

A reader named Ken e-mailed last night. He’s in India on vacation and visited a temple where the house elephant was bestowing blessings for a price.

So he had the pachyderm bless the Yankees.

“In true Yankees tradition, I even overpaid for the blessing,” wrote Ken, who attached this photo of the ceremony.

Good job by Ken.

    Ken you are the best!!!!!!!!!

    Boston Fans can’t do that in India….they wouldn’t understand a place with any minorities.

  3. westy December 30th, 2008 at 2:16 am

    And the elephant has fewer wrinkles than Madonna. Ba boom boom.

  4. Khoa December 30th, 2008 at 2:36 am

    So funny. Great post.

    The elephant would never survive in the Yankee clubhouse – Girardi banned peanuts.

  6. Ricky December 30th, 2008 at 3:07 am

    Hey thats cool Ken! Im Indian (the biggest Indian Yankee fan probably)and I think thats shows his true love for the Yanks…I actually prayed once (or twice)for the Yanks too at the temple too! GO YANKEES!

  7. SteveB December 30th, 2008 at 3:07 am

    The “house elephant”????

    Sounds like a great opening line for a comedic routine.

    Hey, how do we know the elephant wasn’t really a Red Sox fan and had his fingers crossed while he was blessing the Yankees?

  8. burt December 30th, 2008 at 3:12 am

    Hey, way off subject but was just watching jones vs a welchman from early nov. Is there a better spectator sport to watch then boxing. Do not get me wrong, I love baseball, but as far as being entertained from watching sports is it me or is boxing the most entertaining thing to watch?

  9. you gotta have faith (we are called the evil empire for a reason :) ) December 30th, 2008 at 3:25 am

    lol thats great.

  10. gianthinker December 30th, 2008 at 4:46 am

    What about signing Jerry Hairston Jr.? He can play 6 positions and immediately start in CF. When AJax is ready he’s be a corner OF option or a super UT for us. Thoughts?

  11. joeman December 30th, 2008 at 6:23 am

    Jerry Hairston isn’t the answer in CF,good utility player but not a starter on this team

  12. Y's Guy December 30th, 2008 at 7:27 am

    somehow being blessed by the a’s mascot doesnt make me very confident.

  13. Mike December 30th, 2008 at 7:41 am

    After last season, I’ll take any help the Yankees can get whether it’s in the form of a blessing from an elephant or emptying out the bank for some free agent pick ups.

  14. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 8:19 am

    whoa – dead part of the season indeed… good job by ken, but this kind of post just augments just how far away april is…

    sigh…

    theres a rumor out there that the yanks are in talks with the mariners about trading for ichiro the yanks would give up matsui swisher and aceves

  17. Richard C December 30th, 2008 at 8:47 am

    Thanks Ken for getting us the blessing. Good job.

    I think our Yankee World could use alittle more blessing, well-wishing, prayer and general optimism.

    Maybe a little less scrutinizing, sabermetrics, keyboard General Managing (yes, I know it is fun), pessimism.

    I feel really good about this team, this year. Go yankees! You have my unconditional love and support. First place….last place… you are my team.

  18. Kevin CT December 30th, 2008 at 8:51 am

    Yankee Fan 91, where did you read that? Link?

  19. SamVa December 30th, 2008 at 8:54 am

    -yankeefan91 (sign manny asap hes getting cheaper lol)-

    1. that would be incredible
    2. where did you hear that?
    3. How credible is this rumor? or is this like a Cano for Kemp thing where it would make sense for both clubs and at one time was “discussed” but was never really a serious thing..
    Can you imagine? A lineup with-
    Damon (Dh)
    Jeter (SS)
    Ichiro (CF)
    AROD (3B)
    Tex (1B)
    Posada (C)
    Nady (RF)
    Cano (2B)
    Gardner/Cabrera (LF)
    ——-
    I hate to say this.. but IF that trade were true… we would DOMINATE the AL east.. at a pace that might be unfair (haha right). We would have a team that would win games by ten runs.. consistently… At least 4 out of 5 days we would be watching a potentially perfect game while also watching our offense DESTROY teams. For the first time in a while.. we could rely on our defense. Everywhere we are SOLID (except catcher .. See Jose Molina for safety).. In the words of Harey Caray, (well, Ferrell being Caray) “Think of all the possibilities Norm!”

  20. Patrick December 30th, 2008 at 8:55 am

    “Yankee Fan 91, where did you read that? Link?”

    He’s probably lying, that deal makes zero sense for both sides.

  21. Bronx Jeers December 30th, 2008 at 9:00 am

    Well I don’t know about that elephant but they could definitely have used the services of
    Jobu last season.

    Remember, it is very bad to steal Jobu’s rum.

  23. Tom December 30th, 2008 at 9:09 am

    It was either a talk radio trade suggestion or an internet rumor.

    “theres a rumor out there that the yanks are in talks with the mariners about trading for ichiro the yanks would give up matsui swisher and aceves”

    Where did you hear this?

    I posted this last night. A business associate from Seattle emailed me and asked if I had heard any Ichiro talk in NY because he heard the tail end of a discussion about it on the radio in Seattle and wasn’t sure if it was a fan suggestion or something that could really be happening.

  25. Y's Guy December 30th, 2008 at 9:13 am

    so its not even rumor, its an idiot on talk radio in seattle….

    i guess bernie’s #51 is safe…

  26. pat December 30th, 2008 at 9:22 am

    “so its not even rumor, its an idiot on talk radio in seattle….”

    That was my take and why I posted it to see if anyone else had heard anything. Yankeefan91 posting it too makes me wonder where they heard it because what are the odds they heard it on Seattle radio too.

    ——

    Thats a lot to give up for Ichiro. I would rather keep swisher if possible. Put Nady in that deal and sign Manny :)

    Ichiro wouldn’t bat third in our line up but maybe second and either Jeter drops to third or he drops down much further.

  28. jared December 30th, 2008 at 9:35 am

    now that would be some trade

    if it was true…

    Enrique Rojas from espn had reported this those were the players he mention

  30. yankeefan91 (sign manny asap hes getting cheaper lol) December 30th, 2008 at 9:44 am

    its in spanish i found it in a music website and dey had said enrique rojas had reported this

    Con la adquisición del 1B Mark Teixeira, los Yankees de Nueva York repentinamente poseen una sobrepoblación de jardineros de esquinas, pero ninguna opción confiable para el jardín central. Los Marineros de Seattle se encuentran en un franco proceso de cambio de imagen con un nuevo gerente general (Jack Zduriencik ), un nuevo manager (Don Wakamatsu) y uno de los jardines menos poderosos de la historia del béisbol con Endy Chávez (LF), Ichiro Suzuki (CF) y Franklin Gutiérrez (RF). Suzuki, de 35 años, es la máxima estrella de los Marineros, pero el matrimonio entre ambos no marcha tan bien como se ve desde afuera. Es de conocimiento público que Ichiro no está conforme con el rumbo del club y al mismo tiempo algunos de sus compañeros piensan que el japonés es un excéntrico y egoista que solamente juega pensando en sus números (como si eso fuera un fenómeno extraño en Grandes Ligas) y no en la entidad. Ichiro tiene pendientes cuatro años y 68 millones de dólares (17 anuales) en el contrato de 90 millones por 5 temporadas que firmó en julio del 2007. Un cambio por su compatriota Hideki Matsui, el 1B-OF Nick Swisher y el lanzador Alfredo Aceves no estaría fuera de toda lógica. Los Marineros aumentarían considerablemente el poder de sus jardineros con Matsui en el lado izquierdo, profundidad en el cuadro y jardines con Swisher y el pitcheo con Aceves. Al mismo tiempo mantendrían la presencia de un nipón popular en el equipo con el primer mánager de Grandes Ligas con orígenes japoneses y con un dueño mayoritario de ese país. Como negocio, salir de ese contrato le daría más flexibilidad a Zduriencik para establecer su programa de reconstrucción. Y Nueva York resolvería el asunto del jardín central y el bateador abridor de forma definitiva y al más puro estilo Yankees. Si Nueva York estaba dispuesto a cargar con Mike Cameron y su salario de 10 millones, no veo problemas para comprometerse a largo plazo por Ichiro, uno de los jugadores más dedicados y profesionales.

  31. Tom December 30th, 2008 at 9:48 am

    Here’s the “Google Translated” english version of Rojas’s report:

    “Ichiro en route to the Bronx
    With the acquisition of 1B Mark Teixeira, the New York Yankees suddenly have an overpopulation of gardeners corner, but no reliable option for the central garden.

    Seattle Mariners are in a process of change of image with a new general manager (Jack Zduriencik), a new manager (Don Wakamatsu) and the gardens of a less powerful in the history of baseball with Endy Chavez (LF) Ichiro Suzuki (CF) and Franklin Gutierrez (RF).

    Suzuki, 35, is the top star of the Sailors, but the marriage between them is not working as well as seen from outside.

    It is public knowledge that Ichiro is not consistent with the direction of the club and while some of his colleagues think that the Japanese is an eccentric and selfish than only thinking about playing in their numbers (as if that were a strange phenomenon in Major League) and not in the entity.

    Ichiro still has four years and $ 68 million (17 per year) in the contract of 90 million for 5 seasons which it signed in July 2007. A change for his compatriot Hideki Matsui, the 1B-OF Nick Swisher and pitcher Alfredo Aceves would not be beyond any logic.

    The Mariners would considerably increase the power of their gardeners with Matsui on the left side, deep in the box and gardens with Swisher and pitcheo with Aceves.

    At the same time maintain the presence of a popular Japanese team in the first major league manager with Japanese roots and a majority owned by that country. As a business, get out of that contract would give more flexibility to Zduriencik to establish its reconstruction program.

    And New York would resolve the issue of the central garden and the batter opener final form and style Yankees. If New York was willing to pay Mike Cameron and his salary of 10 million, I see no problems for long-term commitment by Ichiro, one of the most dedicated and professional players.”

    If the SEA rumor is true, I’d do that deal, but I wouldn’t give up Aceves. I’d give them Kennedy.

    “And New York would resolve the issue of the central garden and the batter opener final form and style Yankees.”

    I think this proves that Felix Lopez has more power than we realized.

  38. GreenBeret7 December 30th, 2008 at 10:01 am

    If there was actually a trade dialogue between NYY and Seattle involving Suzuki, I’d prefer sending Kennedy, Nady, Veras and Miranda and keeping Swisher and Acevas.

  39. Tom December 30th, 2008 at 10:03 am

  41. pat December 30th, 2008 at 10:06 am

    As long as we’re dreaming, substitute Igawa for Kennedy in the deal.

  42. GreenBeret7 December 30th, 2008 at 10:12 am

    Fine…add Matsui and ask for Ryan Rowland-Smith or shortstop Tug Hulett in return.

  43. Viper December 30th, 2008 at 10:15 am

    I don’t believe that SEA trade rumor for a minute.

    Why would Cashman want a 36 year old Ichiro who is obviously in major decline and still has four years left on his deal.

    There’s no way Cashman would make that deal. Sure, he would have loved to have Ichiro about 7 years ago but certainly not now.

    Megan Fox will show up on my doorstep before the Yanks trade for Ichiro.

    On a slow baseball day, I would just like to say that I hope everyone has a wonderful day and manages to live in the present. Enjoy the breeze on your face (well, it’s breezy here, snow supposedly on the way), and try to touch the moment as opposed to giving away the present by always living in the future. I speak to myself as well as everyone else since we seem to be propelled through life waiting for what is to come and never appreciating what actually is.

    *Yesterday’s the past and tomorrow’s the future. Today is a gift — which is why they call it the present.” So, unwrap your gift with reverence, relish it, cherish it, and nourish it.*

    Spring training will be here soon enough. We have a lot of living to do in the meantime. Carpe diem!

  47. yankeefan91 (sign manny asap hes getting cheaper lol) December 30th, 2008 at 10:21 am

    ichiro could run his ass off i bet wen hes 80 he can out run all of us and he can hit i havent seen a decline in him hes always getting 20 hits wow u put him in this lineup who the hell beats us

  48. trisha - CC and AJ and Sheets - OH MY! December 30th, 2008 at 10:21 am

    Also, I will never get the T and A advertising on a site that is supposedly family oriented.

  49. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 10:21 am

    I think you meant MY doorstep.

    And no – I’d doubt Cash would want a Ichiro in decline for the next 4 years. 1) it blocks A Jax. 2) even if they move Ichiro back to right for Ajax, is a 37, 38, 39, 40 year Ichiro something we’d want? I’d rather keep Nady in right and Damon/Swisher in left.

  50. 86w183 December 30th, 2008 at 10:22 am

    I would be surprised to see the Yanks take on four years @ $ 18 per for a 35-year-old OF. Good deal for 2009, but not a good one for the three years that follow.

    I believe Swisher is a very valuable player and would not like seeing him moved. I have never shared the view that CF is a problem. The Yanks have two guys there who could get much better offensively and are already good defensive players. They can also get offensive with Damon in some situations and use Melky/Gardner for late inning defense.

    I like the idea of Jerry Hairston Jr. A very good utility guy is the biggest need on this team right now.

    Hey Ken, what does a good “trunk job” cost these days?

  51. Phil Parcells December 30th, 2008 at 10:22 am

    I’d trade for Ichiro.

  52. YankeeRay December 30th, 2008 at 10:25 am

    Lots of moving parts in the Ichiro trade potential. I’d still rather move Nady and Matsui for either Bedard or prospects and depth and sign Manny.

    Call me crazy but with Manny’s bat in our line up I am fine with Gardner or Melky in CF. You can always move Swisher or Damon there if you had to but I think the 2 kids would be ok there for now.
    Ichiro is a 1-2 hitter and that would move Jeter or Damon out of one of those two spots. I don’t like Jeter hitting third.
    Lots to think about as the stove is heating up again and it’sobvious Cash has more up his sleeve.

    That Hanley Ramirez thing with Boston is pretty interesting considering he is locked up through 2014 at a reasonable price. If Florida was listening on Bucholz and Ellsbury maybe we have sonething they need more.
    Florida just traded Cabrera last year for CF Cameron Maybrin so they don’t need Ellsbury.
    They do need young pitching, a bull pen guy and a catcher.
    Hughes, Veres, Montero, Kennedy, that kind of combination could catch their attention IMO.
    Hanley has been rumored to be heading to the OF down here for sometime and he would be a better bat and cheaper than Ichiro.
    Leave it to Theo to get creative now Cash can follow in his wake and do the deal for us.

  53. Phil Parcells December 30th, 2008 at 10:25 am

    Ichiro batted .310 on a team that lost 101 games!

  54. Y's Guy December 30th, 2008 at 10:28 am

    “ichiro could run his ass off i bet wen hes 80 he can out run all of us and he can hit i havent seen a decline in him hes always getting 20 hits wow u put him in this lineup who the hell beats us”

    i dont know what you see but i saw 2 balls fall in front if ichiro vs. the yankees that anybody could have had if they made the effort. i wont say he quit on his team, i guess he just quit WITH his team.

    i used to love ichiro but id take a pass here for sure.

    If Hanley was a Yankee and Joba and Hughes were Marlins and the Marlins asked for Hanley… who would you want back – Joba or Hughes?

  58. Laura December 30th, 2008 at 10:34 am

    “Call me crazy but with Manny’s bat in our line up I am fine with Gardner or Melky in CF.”

    It would seem to me that the Tex signing has put any Manny deal into the realm of “It ain’t gonna happen”.

  59. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 10:36 am

    *It would seem to me that the Tex signing has put any Manny deal into the realm of “It ain’t gonna happen”.*

  60. Laura December 30th, 2008 at 10:37 am

    “i wont say he quit on his team, i guess he just quit WITH his team.”

    SEA was a nightmare last year. Ichiro must have been so frustrated that he just gave up. I doubt that would happen if he came here.

    If the Yankees really want Jackson in CF next year, they should pass on Ichiro. Let Gardner/Melky handle CF with Damon in there on occasion.

  61. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 10:38 am

    i dont much like nba and as for the nhl….have they settled that strike yet?

    bring on the baseball network!

  70. josh December 30th, 2008 at 10:47 am

    i agree with greenberat7, ichiro still performs at a great level. i mean this guy gives a ton of effort. dont you see on the top ten play when he climbs the wall. i mean the dont give him the nickname “spiderman” for no reason

  71. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 10:48 am

    If the Yanks were indeed thinking about how to get Hanley Ramirez – first they’d have to find a position for him. They’re certainly not going to move Jeter (unwisely). So CF for a year, and then left after damon goes and Ajax in center in 2010.

    So, first who does the Marlins want. IMO, it’d be nothing short of Joba, but let’s say they were pursuaded into the 0-4 6.62 era Hughes and they’d want a CF, so it’d have to be AJax. Since the Sox couldn’t pursuade the Marlins with their package of Ellsbury/Buccholz, then Hughes/Ajax would not be enough either. According to SI.com the Marlins need to be “overwhelmed” so I’d doubt that a low tier prospect like Cody Ransom or Brett Gardner/Melky would entice the Marlins. You’d have to probably include a prospect in the realm of Melancon or Betances or MacAllister. I dunno. If you were Cash – would you do that deal? I’m leaning towards no. Besides, I still believe the Marlins would ask for Joba first and foremost.

  72. ham fighters December 30th, 2008 at 10:48 am

  74. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 10:49 am

    ps… if Ajax is included in the deal (which he would be) then Hanley is our future CF.

    ——

    Laura, you are probably right but thats what everyone said about signing Tex after CC. It just makes too much sense.

    Ham, #51 – This is the only trick left for us to play. Then we are DONE.

    harwood-

    It’s on channel 280 here in Jersey (Comcast). I turned it on and they are showing a loop of the greatest Home runs in history.

    Right as I flipped over there’s Jeter hitting his series walk-off.

    It seems as if they are just playing stock baseball video until the first of the year, but it’s on….

    Trade Cano to Dodgers for Matt Kemp and sign Orlando hudson. Second – Trade Matsui or Nady to the giants.

    Ichiro is a bad contract waiting to happen. He looked like he was dogging it a bit last time the Yankees played them. Speculation is fun, but this one is not happenning.

  82. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 11:01 am

    (Repeat): Matsui has a full no-trade, had two knee surgeries in 10 months and is a defensive liability, there is no DH in the NL, and is still owed $13 million in a market where Manny or Abreu can’t find a job. Good luck with that.

    Yeh we cant even tune to that channel yet. Its odd because when they add a new channel it usually has a place holder like PPV commercials for a while before it goes active.

  84. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 11:04 am

    Oh yeah, the Dodgers value Kemp higher than they do Cano (who was awful last year to the tune of .271, 14 HR, and a OBP of .305). You’re overvaluing the Yankee players a tad and undervaluing the other teams some as well. And Hudson would cost another draft pick.

    I remember hearing Matsui saying he would accept a trade for the good of the team last time talks of moving him sprung up. Id suspect Seattle is at the top of his list too.

    ——

    They live on stock piling young pitchers. They need help in the bullpen as they just lost 4 relievers from last years team and are rumored to be in on Derrick Turnbow. They need a catcher badly and were rumored to be in on Pudge but everyone knows that they won’t pay big bucks for either of them.

    So if the Yanks have any interest in Ramirez for CF they would need at least 1 young pitcher, at least 1 RP and a catcher to open a discussion.

    i want matsui on our team. he will be healthy for ST and will be very productive this year. no way you get equal value for him, it would be a salary dump or bad contract for bad contract type of deal.

    i want matsui batting behind arod this season the guy is a solid clutch hitter.

  88. sunny615 December 30th, 2008 at 11:12 am

    harwood, I would think teams in the AL would be more appetising to him considering his knee problems and the DH role that AL teams can place him in. I can’t see him as an everyday LF anymore.

    Ham, against lefties Alex would never see a strike. Matsui has been pulling off the ball for the past 2 years against lefties and with a runner on first is too much of a dbl play threat.
    Now if this is due to his knee hurting then maybe that would change but I doubt it.
    If you have watched his at bats his body is pulling out way too early and though he has been productive for us, I think with only 1 yr left it wouldn’t be the worst thing if we moved him. He is a DH only and doesn’t run well.
    Now it depends on what you get back or why you are dumping the salary but I won’t go there.

  99. 86w183 December 30th, 2008 at 11:28 am

    If there was any way to get Hanley Ramirez you have to try as hard as you can to make it happen. He is one of the most talented and exciting offensive players in the game.

    He may eventuially be a CF, which is a problem with Austin Jackson but for a great player at age 26 you do it.

    Some will consider this blasphemy but I wouldn’t rule out Joba in this case. I’d clearly rather not, but Ramirez is that good. I don’t think the Yanks can offer a catcher anywhere near MLB ready and that may be a problem. They certainly can offer Hughes/Veras/Romine/Angellini as a package that has a great deal of talent.

    This trade would be bold and it would be costly. Don’t delude yourself into thinking it could be done for Kennedy, Edwar and Cody Ransom.

  101. Tom December 30th, 2008 at 11:29 am

    Both Nady (.854 OPS vs LHP career) and Swisher (.825 OPS career) are good against lefties.

  102. ham fighters December 30th, 2008 at 11:32 am

    i could act like i know something about hitting and say that matsui’s pulling off and decline in slg% was obviously caused by his inability to generate power from his bad knees, but i hate it when people do that.

    a healthy matsui is a very solid clutch hitter and better than the alternatives the yankees have now to hit behind arod (i assume tex/arod but it could b the other way.)

    should they sign another OF that could change, of course and its the yankees so you can never say never. but from what i know of cashman and hal, i think theres no way manny ever wears pinstripes.

    so working with what he have, matsui gives us the best opportunity to bring home alex and those he leaves on the bases.

    i think people should start getting used to the idea. he is gonna be the godzilla this year! enjoy it!

    sunny,

    Yes, Matsui might be hard to move, but he can be moved. I’d like to engage Seattle in a swap of sorts, though I think the Giants would be a better match if they buy into his ability to play some more LF. I doubt they do though.

    I’d try to ship Nady to SF for Jonathan Sanchez and slot him in as the 5th starter if Pettitte doesn’t re-sign within the next 5 days.

    I don’t want Dunn and I won’t comment on the other one though the Dodgers are saying that Manram is still their first choice so there ya go he will follow the money.

    As far as protecting Arod I guess I would bat matsui there against righties and Posada against lefties. If Posada is 100% healthy and hitting this year I would probably leave him in the 5 hole so they can’t mix and match later in the game.
    I don’t like our options there if you haven’t noticed.

    I’m not a big fan of moving Matsui anyway. I like Matsui; always have. I mean, come on – the guy apologized for getting injured. How can you not like him? Yes, he’s got two bum knees. That being said, I think that he’s got something left to give. I say we keep him and let him finish out his contract. He’ll probably retire after the season is over anyway.

  107. UpState December 30th, 2008 at 11:40 am

    …and finacially related — Matsui is a huge positive factor for the Yankees marketing/sales efforts in Japan.

    Matsui is a baseball god over there; Ichiro is second shelf.

  109. 86w183 December 30th, 2008 at 11:42 am

    I don’t get all the love for Jonathan Sanchez on this board. The guy walks a batter every other inning and is always behind hitters. And that’s in the weakest hitting division in the weaker league. He’s got a great arm, but he’s not worth Nady.

    Matsui is clearly the Yanks’ best hope for the # 5 spot in the order at this time. I don’t know how healthy he’ll be, nor does anyone else which is why trade talk about him is a waste of time. If he has a great spring and shows he can play in the OF then you could see a major deal in late March, but not befroe then and he would have veto rights on any deal anyway.

  110. ham fighters December 30th, 2008 at 11:42 am

    i understand you dont like our options there ray, and i was kinda hard on you about the manny thing, sorry. ill just agree to disagree there.

    anyway, i believe that the yankees really did stretch the budget to get tex b/c of next yrs poor fa class, and that they’re not going to do anything more, unless its signing pettitte.

    so i think it will come down to playing who we got. sure your guy would be better behind arod than anyone we have, but until/unless hes here, we have to keep matsui and hope he’s healthy. we know what he can do if he is and it will be more than adequate. obviously if hes not healthy, we have another problem to deal with and you go to plan b. but until somebody better than matsui shows up in pinstripes, matsui’s our guy.

    have confidence, he’s gonna be great!

  111. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes December 30th, 2008 at 11:48 am

    the only reason I am ok with guys that are potential injury risks is because it opens up the possibility of guys on the farm getting a shot at the bigs.

    rest assured that one of matsui or posada will get hurt and miss games at some point or another. its inevitable.

  112. jennifer December 30th, 2008 at 11:48 am

    Ham, I have managed at the high school and college level and still train kids in south florida while manageing my sons 13 yr olds year round travel team. We are pretty good and the competitoon in So Florida is pretty intense, a lot of fun.
    I don’t profess to know why Matsui has been pulling off and I will leave that to Girardi and staff.
    As far as Tex/Arod I would bat Tex third to continue to break up the lefty righty hitters between Jeter and Arod and that why I like Posada 5th.

    I still think Cash is up to something and putting this team together for a 3 yr run to me is his plan. Matsui and Nady are gone after this year and if he can take care of all family business right now heading into new stadium it makes sense.

    How intriguing is Hanley all of a sudden?

    How funny would that be if Theo paved the way?

  114. The Mad Prince in Pinstripes December 30th, 2008 at 11:55 am

    Hanley would demand a king’s ransom.

    Any of you tempted to throw Joba into a trade discussion for HanRam are CRAZY. Hughes, sure, but Joba? No. That guy is going to take New York by storm over the next 10 years…be ready for it.

    Our three best prospects would have to be included in any trade for Hanley and that would decimate what cashman has been rebuilding.

  115. 86w183 December 30th, 2008 at 12:15 pm

    Mad Prince —

    I’m not crazy, but to totally rule out including Joba in a Hanley Ramirez trade is. I love Joba’s potential as a starter and his proven ability out of the pen, but Ramirez has Cooperstown ability. That said, I would certainly try to do the deal without him.

    Three top prospects would not decimate the Yankees system, not even close. If Hughes, Veras, Romine and Angelini gets it done I’d pull the trigger. Hughes , A-Jax and Romine might be too steep for me.

    What legit price would you pay for a 26-year-old who is already among the best offensive players in the game?

  116. Doreen December 30th, 2008 at 12:16 pm

    Question, why would Hanley Ramirez be available?

    While I agree Cashman may not be finished, I don’t see anything being done unless it’s a knock-your-socks-off kind of deal being offered to him. I don’t necessarily believe he is shopping around his “surplus” outfielders/DHs. What is surplus in December could be very, very valuable in February/March/April.

    Anyone else read that the Mets might be interested in a trade for Andruw Jones? How crazy is that when Abreu is available on the FA market for cash only? Abreu seems exactly the kind of player that would appeal to the Mets. Unless they’re not interested in 3-year commitments, either. Sounds like Bobby might have to set his sights on a shorter-term contract if he wants a job. If only he wasn’t afraid of the wall…..

    Went to the Rangers game last night. My first hockey game. So much more fun in person than on tv. We saw 3 fights, a guy go down and a stretcher called out (though he walked – oops, skated – off the ice on his own), and 8 goals being scored (the ninth happened after we left). Oh, and lest I forget, we also saw a human hockey puck race. Don’t ask. :lol:

  117. Doreen December 30th, 2008 at 12:17 pm

    Oh, and about Ramirez – how can anyone be sure he’d be okay not as a SS?

  118. Doreen December 30th, 2008 at 12:20 pm

    Or, is this all a joke and someone just thought since the Manny Ramirez talk had been played out, we could keep it in the family, so to speak, by switching first names???? :lol:

  119. 86w183 December 30th, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    Ray —

    I agree about Matsui vs LHP, but I think he should hit in the five hole against RHP.

    Matsui had a great year vs LHP in 2005, but over his career he has not been very productive against lefties. Look at his annual OPS vs LHP:

    2008 .751
    2007 .814
    2006 .626
    2005 .972
    2004 .726
    2003 .776

    I would expect to see Nady or Swisher DH against many lefties in 2009 if no trades are made that change the roster significantly.

  120. Brooke December 30th, 2008 at 1:27 pm

  123. Kurt Philippin January 9th, 2009 at 2:15 am

    Hanley Ramirez is a young, MVP caliber player. Probably can be transitioned into CF immediately and plug our biggest remaining hole. Probably one of the few guys I’d prefer to have over manny in my pipe dream.

    I’d be more than willing to give up Hughes, Betances, AJAX, and Nady. And although I’m not sure what the Marlin’s needs are, a major league ready pitcher with ace potential, minor league pitch with ace potential, a highly regarded minor league OF, and a serviceable corner outfielder with only $3 mil left on his contract sounds like a good deal to me.

    If not, sign manny and see whether Torre is willing to exchange Kemp for Kennedy, Melky, Matsui and a minor league pitcher.
