Yankees agree to contracts with Gaudin and Logan

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jan 18, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Yankees have agreed to contracts with Chad Gaudin and Boone Logan, avoiding arbitration with their only remaining arbitration-eligible players.

UPDATE, 7:53 p.m.: The Yankees just sent this release.

The New York Yankees announced today they have agreed to one-year contracts with right-handed pitcher Chad Gaudin and left-handed pitcher Boone Logan, avoiding arbitration with both players.

Gaudin, 26, was acquired by the Yankees on August 6, 2009, from the San Diego Padres in exchange for cash considerations. He combined to go 6-10 with a 4.64 ERA in 31 appearances (25 starts) with both clubs in 2009. He made 11 appearances (six starts) with the Yankees, going 2-0 with a 3.43 ERA as the Yankees won each of his starts. Gaudin owns a career mark of 34-35 with a 4.50 ERA in 216 Major League appearances (75 starts) with Tampa Bay, Toronto, Oakland, Chicago-NL, San Diego and the Yankees.

Logan, 25, was acquired by the Yankees along with right-handed pitcher Javier Vazquez in exchange for outfielder Melky Cabrera, left-handed pitcher Mike Dunn and minor league right-handed pitcher Arodys Vizcaino on December 22, 2009. He owns 164 career Major League appearances with Chicago-AL and Atlanta, going 5-5 with a 5.78 ERA. He split the 2009 season between Triple-A Gwinnett and the Braves, posting a 1-1 record with a 5.19 ERA at the Major League level where he held left-handed batters to a .231 batting average (9-for-39) with no home runs.

UPDATE, 8:09 p.m.: The Associated Press reports that Gaudin got “about $2.9 million” and Logan got “about $600,000.”

UPDATE, 8:33 p.m.: Make that $2.95 million for Gaudin, $590,000 for Logan.

    get the confetti ready. gaudin = 28

  2. Drive 4- 5 January 18th, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    We all knew that just the threat of Gaudin throwing in the bullpen was enough to put the fear of god into the opponent this postseason. It’s hard to place a dollar value on a level of intimidation, but I’m glad the Yankees have figured one out.

    i spewed all my thoughts on johnny damon yesterday and i think i know baseball pretty well, but i realize i could be totally wrong and blake and erica could be totally right about him. i dont think so, and i might engage in a little back and forth debate, but i respect them and thier right to thier opinions.

    and besides, erica is one of my favorite posters on here, i tend to be very much on the oppc side of things.

    ***************

    Thanks Ham Fighters! I like you too :-)

    I had no issues with your debating me last night. It was constuctive opinions, the way a debate is supposed to be.

    However, I drew the line when others started calling me overemotional and illogical. It just wasn’t necessary or appropriate. I have no idea why people feel the need to turn a simple difference of opinion into a personal battle, but I refuse to get dragged into that and I just choose to ignore those people. I ignore a lot of people :-)

  7. mick January 18th, 2010 at 7:54 pm

    I sent Johnny a note and asked him where he’s been. If we all do that maybe we can move this situation along.

    WHO CARES SIGN DAMON

  11. GeorgeInJax January 18th, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    Nice moves by Cashman.
    Gaudin & Mitre can work as long men in the pen or spot starters. Both will be valuable trade chips should another team have a starter go down. Mitre’s shoulder should be even stronger now & might yield more effectiveness.
    Logan will be nice to have as a situational lefty & spotting Marte some. Bullpen is shaping up nicely!

  12. mick January 18th, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    I find most of the posters in here insincere and unwilling to commit.

  13. GeorgeInJax January 18th, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Who knows if signing these guys means there’s a package being put together for the mystery right handed batting outfielder Cashman has mentioned? I’m ok with B.G., but curious to see what Mr. C pulls off

    i like when people can come to agreement without arbitration. Good. Next move, please? :)

    Ham Fighters -

    I agree with you. It is possible to to not agree with people and yet remain agreeable in one’s posts. Plus, unless I’m unaware of a Lohud game like GT-whatever, no one’s keeping score and you don’t get anything for being right and you don’t get penalized for being wrong. (it doesn’t help when people go into the archives to dredge up year-old opinions, too. :) )

  16. sierchio January 18th, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    whats OPPC

  17. Ham Fighters January 18th, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    i think chad’s point about how underrated a move the vazquez signing is was great! and i also think that gaudin and mitre are great insurance policies to have. gaudin proved last season that he can fit in, and mitre is a guy who could really turn out to be a sleeper in his first season completly healed from tj surgery. on most nl teams, vazquez, gaudin and mitre would be #’s 2,3 & 4, but with the yankees they are #’s 4, 7 & 8. that is some upgrade over the last 2 years.

    i no longer fear the return of sir sidney…

  18. Chris from NJ January 18th, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    I didn’t realize Gaudin was 26?? I thought he was a ‘journeyman’

  19. Laura - I'm ready for baseball!! January 18th, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    February is right around the corner and there are still a lot of guys not signed, Damon being one of them. Still don’t get why the Yankees won’t just offer him a one year deal for 5-6M. As late as it is, I can’t imagine that Damon wouldn’t take it. I understand that the Yankees are trying to cut the payroll, but if they expect us to believe that 6M is going to send them into bankruptcy, they must be suffering from champagne withdrawal.

  20. pat January 18th, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    I like the strength in numbers approach Cashman is taking this year with the pitchers. A good blend of aces, reliables, kids from the farm and a low risk/high reward or 2 thrown in.

    If I remember correctly, arbitration deals aren’t guaranteed contracts, are they?

  21. Chad Jennings January 18th, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Gaudin’s still pretty young. He was a 34th-round pick in 2001 and got to the big leagues two years later. He was 20 at the time and had a 3.60 ERA. Pretty good.

  22. Nick in SF in Larkspur January 18th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Maybe the Yankees don’t want Johnny Damon as the everyday leftfielder — for any price.

  23. pat January 18th, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    “Make that $2.95 million for Gaudin”

    Plus incentives according to Mark Carig

  24. Joe from Long Island January 18th, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    Nick/SF/Larkspur – I think that’s becoming pretty obvious. Cash has only said this, what, 579 times?

  25. Tony in Albany January 18th, 2010 at 8:55 pm

    I’m a bit surprised that Gaudin is actually making that much this year….I like keeping him around for insurance since you can really never had too much depth at the position, but if there is so much concern about staying under the 200 Mil mark, and there’s only 2 mill for a left fielder, how is Gaudin worth 2.9 Mill?

  26. Rich in NJ January 18th, 2010 at 8:57 pm

    Gaudin isn’t worth that.

  28. AndrewYF January 18th, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Hey, it’s certainly better than $5+ for Penny or Smoltz.

    How is it that those players got a ton of offseason hype yet Gaudin is viewed (albeit correctly) as pretty much a nonfactor/depth swingman?

  29. blake January 18th, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    Chad,

    Do you think the Yankees are going to watch Sheets throw just to scare other teams into higher bids or do you think they may have legitimate interest if they like what they see?

  31. Joe from Long Island January 18th, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    Tony – we are limited by what we read in the media. We don’t know if there are any special reasons behind them getting Gaudin under contract, and maybe under a certain salary threshold.

    I’m starting to think that a trade may be in the works (whether it comes to fruition or not).

    If Cash wanted to sign a FA OF, like Reed Johnson, it would be done by now (I think). The fact that it hasn’t makes me wonder if Cash is working on a trade, and, Gaudin may be integral to it.

    All speculation of course.

  33. Laura - I'm ready for baseball!! January 18th, 2010 at 9:04 pm

    “Maybe the Yankees don’t want Johnny Damon as the everyday leftfielder — for any price.”

    Yes, but why? They don’t have a problem signing Mr. DL Nick Johnson, but are hesitant to sign JD to a part time gig. I think the guy has proven that he is still a very good professional baseball player. I mean, really – it’s a one year deal. How can that hurt?

  35. m January 18th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    That’s probably commisurate with Gaudin’s experience, but it seems to be an awful lot for the last guy out of the bullpen or AAA starter.

    Trade bait?

  36. Frank January 18th, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    “Do you think the Yankees are going to watch Sheets throw just to scare other teams into higher bids or do you think they may have legitimate interest if they like what they see?”

    Yankees present the same issues for Sheets that they do for Wang. Namely, lack of opportunity. Guys who are going to get one year contracts will need the chance to pitch. A team like the Yankees that runs 6-7 starters deep simply doesn’t offer the opportunity. Other teams are going to know that.

    Hard to fight Gaudin’s number if they went to arbitration when they have a AAA pitcher not on the 40 man making $4 million.

    Some reason he can’t be both? Yankees are his 6th team in 7 MLB seasons.

  43. Stan January 18th, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    I believe there’s a fair amount of payroll flexability. The daily talk of exactly $200 million is somewhat adjustable but perhaps not in the case of Damon.
    Something has drawn the ire of Brian Cashman and it goes beyond Damon’s decline as a leftfielder.
    Economic times are not what they once were and either Damon or Boras or both refuse to realize it.
    Once Nick Johnson was signed, it should have been a clear message to Boras that Cashman meant business.
    The Yankee treasury is healthy but not bottomless.

  44. Nick in SF in Larkspur January 18th, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Laura, at some point you should accept that the Yankees might not agree with your appraisal of the players involved.

    Nick Johnson might end up on the DL, but that’s not what they signed him for. Is there anything about his history that Cashman didn’t consider before signing him?

    Has Johnny Damon made it publically known that he would accept a cheap one-year deal to be a part-time player?

    “Has Johnny Damon made it publically known that he would accept a cheap one-year deal to be a part-time player?”

    It’s Jan 18th and he hasn’t been signed yet. I don’t think he has to. I would take it as sort of a given.

  47. Frank January 18th, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    “How is it that those players got a ton of offseason hype yet Gaudin is viewed (albeit correctly) as pretty much a nonfactor/depth swingman?”

    Probably because those guys once enjoyed success in the majors, and in Smoltz’s case, enormous, perhaps even HOF-level success. Gaudin has been a dime a dozen, part time starter, mostly reliever type with slightly less than ordinary numbers.

  48. Nick in SF in Larkspur January 18th, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    A given that Damon will accept a cheap deal to be a part-time player? Perhaps. I’m not sure if he’s there yet.

  49. timo January 18th, 2010 at 9:43 pm

    “Something has drawn the ire of Brian Cashman and it goes beyond Damon’s decline as a leftfielder.”

    Cashman gave Damon preference over Matsui because, as between the two, he wanted a DH who could at least play the field occasionally. Waiting for Damon cost Cashman the chance to sign Matsui when Hideki moved fast. The 2/14 offer (which looks very good now) was then presented to Damon in the context of “you better take this or we’re moving on” to make sure of at least getting Nick Johnson, who occupies the DH spot that was in large part intended for Damon/Matsui.

    So there’s that.

  50. Frank January 18th, 2010 at 9:44 pm

    “It’s Jan 18th and he hasn’t been signed yet. I don’t think he has to. I would take it as sort of a given”

    Wouldn’t say that just yet. Abreu signed his deal with the Angels on February 12, 2009.

  51. Nick in SF in Larkspur January 18th, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Maybe Cashman is waiting for Valentine’s Day to give the 2/14 offer again.

    If I had to pick, I would choose Damon over Abreu.

    Abreu just signed for 2 years @ 19 mil. Yes the Angels over paid. But no way is Damon “washed up”. or worth Gaudin money.

    Theo and company were wrong 4 years ago. IMO today’s detractors will be wrong 2 years from now.

    i dont see what is so surprising about gaudin getting a touch under 3 million…he is at worse a league average pitcher who can spot start/be a 5th starter or be a reliever..he got paid 2 million last year and naturally gets a sizable raise for an average year..this is how baseball is

  76. Chad Jennings January 18th, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Blake, if the Yankees watch Sheets, I’m sure it will be because they have some interest. My guess is he’ll get more money than the Yankees are willing to pay, but they might check him out just in case. I don’t think they’ll show up for the bullpen session just to drive up the price.

    Erica, sorry to hear that about HIMYM. It was a solid episode. Not as good as last week, but pretty funny.

  77. Drive 4- 5 January 18th, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    I know full well that one is a pitcher and the other is a 35 year old outfielder/DH, but if Chad Gaudin is worth $3mil then Johnny Damon is worth 3 times that amount. Gaudin added nothing to the Yanks success last season.

  78. Rob B January 18th, 2010 at 10:15 pm

    Of course, the Cubs had to pay $1.6 million of Gaudin’s salary last season. The Padres and Yankees split the other $0.4 million.

    This season, the Yankees will be paying the whole salary (unless he’s traded).

  79. stuckey January 18th, 2010 at 10:26 pm

    “However, I drew the line when others started calling me overemotional and illogical. It just wasn’t necessary or appropriate. I have no idea why people feel the need to turn a simple difference of opinion into a personal battle,”

    Erica, because you’re referring specifically to me, my answer is because I don’t regard calling your analogy comparing Damon and Abreu illogical “personal” in any way, shape, or form.

    It’s a description of an argument, not the person giving it. EVERYONE (including me and you) have been wrong before, why is it considered an attack to response honestly to your argument. Didn’t you post it with the intent of getting feedback from others?

    I don’t consider myself infallible. I don’t think everything I’ve ever concluded to be just a subjective matter of interpretation. I’ve been mistaken and misinformed … based assumptions on dubious premises. And I appreciate that when this has been the case people having given me the RESPECT to assume I’m mature enough to be told so. I WANT to be better informed, not patronized.

    You said Damon to the Yankees makes “so much sense”. In effect, you’re indirectly saying people who don’t agree with that are not making sense or recognizing sense. Which is fine, I don’t take that personally (nor would I imagine Brian Cashman).

    Someone, I believe Mick said that we seem to be talking at each other and not to each other. In fact, I believe the opposite is true. When people exchange and compare ideas in search of truths, that’s conversation.

    I honestly don’t get why people would gather in a public forum to share ideas about a common interest and leave everything at the level of there are no facts, there is no logic, there is no reason … there is only personal opinion, and we’re all hear just to have hear ourselves talk and “agree to disagree”.

    I enjoy comparing and contrasting my ideas with other smart people and not having to qualify disagreement with some not-entirely genuine social grace.

    YOU don’t think people who think Damon is a bad idea are making any sense. Why not just say so. Tell us why we aren’t making sense. You might find that some people not only won’t be offended, they’d rather enjoy hearing you express yourself directly.

    When people say things we disagree with, we THINK there are wrong. We can respect their right to be wrong, but why so some people want to pretend this isn’t the case?

    Drive,

    Would you pay Damon $9M? When there’s no other (apparent) suitors?

    I don’t think Cashman’s going to be the one to initiate contact on this one.

    If Boras calls Cashman, how does he break the ice? :)

    In order to save face, Cashman has thrown in a bonus to appease Damon.

    JD can run GTLU on days when Erica can’t. (mostly day games during the week)

    He’ll also get a signed pair of Gretzky ice skates (not to be worn during the game) and other fine parting gifts at the end of the year….

    I used to emulate Mickey’s walk when I was nine-years-old.

    In hindsight, a nine-year-old white kid walking around like Mickey Rivers probably could only have worked in the late-’70s.

    The only reason I gave my opinion at all, is because another poster asked me straightforwardly for my opinion on the matter. So I gave it to him. It was not my intention to start any kind of debate. I was answering the question raised to me.

    To me, resigning Damon makes sense. I realize not everyone agrees with that. I welcome a difference of opinion. However, when someone tells me that something that makes sense to me- is not logic, I take offense.

    The medical stuff at the bottom of this article about Beltran and Bay’s contract negotiations with Boston and physicals is an interesting behind the scenes look from Gammons I hadn’t read or seen before.

    Beltran had 20-30 ligament fractures removed from his knee. I’m guessing he needed the surgery.

    Gaudin @ $2.9 is reasonable considering he’s young and a swingman. But as Rob B alluded to, the Yanks are paying his whole salary this year. I’d be very surprised if he ended the season on the team. He’s a piece of a package. Just don’t know who the other pieces are as yet or for whom they intend to get for him. Same could be said for Mitre. He doesn’t have a long-term future on this team.

    The Seattle Mariners have been shuffling the deck, but it looks like they’ll keep their ace.

    lastname
    Hernandez

    On the eve of exchanging salary figures for arbitration, right-hander Felix Hernandez has agreed to a multiyear contract with the team, pending a physical, a source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com’s Keith Law on Monday.

    The amount or length of the deal were not immediately available.

    Hernandez made a case for a big payday with a 19-5 record and a 2.46 ERA in 2009. He had earned $3.8 million in his first year of arbitration eligibility.

  99. Jerkface January 19th, 2010 at 12:22 am

    Will have to be seen the length, he could just agree to buy out his remaining arbitration years.

  100. Bret the Hitman January 19th, 2010 at 12:32 am

    The extension for King Felix is especially unexpected if the Mariners actually bought out any of his FA seasons beyond 2011. As he would have turned 26 during his first FA season during 2012, Hernandez would have potentially been the most lucrative FA pitcher in the history of baseball and would have quite possibly incited a bidding war between the two highest spending teams–the Yankees and Red Sox on a scale that would have resembled the Cold War Soviet Union and the United States. In short, he would have been an agent’s dream–young, successful, durable, and stuff to die for on the supply-side and plenty of demand from the super powers due to potential losses (Retirement-Pettitte, Wakefield; Possible FA–Beckett, Vazquez, Dice-K, etc.)

  103. YankFan January 19th, 2010 at 1:12 am

    Get rid of Gaudin and Miltre and you have about $4MM. Yanks want to pay $3MM to LF. add the $4MM and the $3MM and you have $7MM. Doesn’t Damon take that??

  108. gianthinker January 19th, 2010 at 3:37 am

    I’d love to see the Yankees take a chance on Rick Ankeil. I think his swing is perfect for Yankee stadium. He could challenge Gardner for the LF job and if he doesn’t win it he could give all of our OF a breather when they need it. He could be had for cheap at this point. He struggled in a HUGE way last season but he has high upside and with the ability to play all 3 OF spots and the fact that he’s got speed and bats lefty he could fit in well in the Bronx.

  109. Juke Early January 19th, 2010 at 4:32 am

    So, I guess this means season 2010 being a lock, we can all go away this Summer? meanwhile Boston morons are running blogs like: is this Sux staff the best of all time in the MLB? who will hit the most homeruns on the Sux? which Sux fan is the dumbest ( I’m guessing that’s at least a 273,586 way tie )

    For the uneducated – Nippon Ham is the name of the company. The team nick name is The Fighters. They are not HAM fighting -that would be something entirely different. Not to mention, you know what. . ..

  110. blake January 19th, 2010 at 7:21 am

    This is hypothetical of course but let’s say that the Yankees do have a certain amount of money they are saving for Damon, then let’s say they go watch Sheets pitch and they love what they see.. If that were the case then which should they go after? I know they may not have money for either..I said it was hypothetical

  111. Patrick from CT January 19th, 2010 at 7:51 am

    2.95mil for your #7 starter is a lot of $$. I could see him get traded. Cash has said he would bring 9-10 starters to camp though.
    If the top 5 remain healthy through camp, we might see Ace and maybe even Phil start the year in AAA. I think they will break camp with only 11 pitchers if Phil and Gaudin are both in the pen.
    Logan is not going to make the team. Let’s hope Marte is ready to pitch this year.

  112. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 7:58 am

    a few morning thoughts:

    1. I don’t see the Yankees dealing either Mitre or Gaudin – I think Girardi really believes that Mitre is a diamond in the rough who can help this team and views Gaudin as a plausable fifth starter if he wants to put Joba in the pen and send Hughes to AAA to open the season on an innings’ count.

    2. Please, enough with the Johnny Damon talk. He’s not going to accept 2 mil and the Yankees aren’t going to give him 6 or 7 mil. And that’s fine. The Yankees don’t need Damon. With Johnson batting second and Gardner in LF the Yankee lineup is just as good as it was last year and their defense is much better – there’s just no obvious need for Damon. In addition, by not signing Damon, Cash leaves himself wiggle room with his budget for later in the season if he does need to bring in a bat or arm.

    3. I’m fine with a bench of: Cervelli, Pena, Hoffmann and either Reed Johnson/Rocco Baldelli/Fernando Tatis – though of the three Tatis would be my first choice. If the Yankees find they need more bench help later on would it shock anyone for them to reach out to Jed Hoyer in San Diego and bring in both Hairston brothers?

  113. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 8:04 am

    Patrick –

    Why wouldn’t Logan make the squad? The Yankees would like to have two left handed options out of the pen (which is why they were against trading Mike Dunn until the Braves included Logan).

    If we assume the Yankees take 12 pitchers north it’s entirely possible we see the squad look something like this:

    Starters: CC, AJ, Andy, Javy, Gaudin
    Pen: RHP – Mo, Aceves, Joba, Robertson, Mitre
    LHP – Marte, Logan

    There are a couple of reasons for this – with the schedule being what it is the Yankees won’t need a fifth starter to open the season so they can leave Hughes in extended spring to get regular work and go with a four man rotation to keep everyone on regular rest. Also, given how relatively inexpesnive the Yankee bullpen is – spending a little over 3.5 mil on Mitre and Gaudin isn’t a budget buster if Cash and Girardi think they can help.

  114. Frank January 19th, 2010 at 8:19 am

    “The extension for King Felix is especially unexpected if the Mariners actually bought out any of his FA seasons beyond 2011″

    Scuttlebut’s been it’s a 5-6 year deal. If that’s the case, he’s an FA at age 29-30, which still positions him pretty well.

  115. Patrick from CT January 19th, 2010 at 8:20 am

    Chip,
    I don’t think Logan makes the team because he’s not vary good. The Yankees have lots of good arms that will prove better than his.
    I believe the Joba starts the season as the #5 starter so long as he’s healthy. He will get one last shot to become a reliable starter.
    I’m starting to think those of you that say Phil will not start the season with the big league club may be right. If the top 5 are healthy, I give it 50/50.

  116. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 8:29 am

    Patrick –

    I don’t think Joba starts in the rotation if for no other reason than that the Yankees won’t need a fifth starter early in the season.

    Joba or Hughes would be throwing on something like 9 days rest over the course of the first month.

    I think Logan has a good shot to make the team but he’s going to have to compete for his spot. In fact I think there will be competition between:

    Logan, Mitre, Melancon, Edwar, Romulo, Albaladejo, and Nova for two spots in the pen. Robertson has his spot all but assured, but an awful spring could see him start in AAA as well.

    As for Nova, between his fantastic 2009 season and his dominance in Winter Ball it wouldn’t totally shock me if the Yankees decided to open with him as the 5th starter if Gaudin and Mitre both look shakey.

    I think it’s silly what they’ve done with Joba over the last couple of years, and now that he could throw without restrictions it’s even sillier but I really do think he’s headed back to the pen.

  117. MTU January 19th, 2010 at 8:30 am

    Frank-

    The Yankees might have a good problem on their hands soon -
    a potential logjam of good young arms at the upper levels of the minors(Z-Mac, Nova, etc.).

    You can never have enough pitching but some of these guys might wind up as trade chips for ?

    And by the way, if he becomes available, Matt Cain would be a
    great target. I think he is scheduled to be a FA soon. Probably will get locked up like the others.

  118. Will January 19th, 2010 at 8:31 am

    Blake, the other question seems to me to be, if the NYY don’t have any more money in their budget, why are they even bothering about having a look at Sheets?

    By the way, talking about missing persons on the Blog, has anyone seen/heard anything from Giuseppe Franco? I know he had been sick but thought he had been slowly recovering.

    Giuseppe, if you’re out there, let us know how you’re doing. I always enjoyed reading your comments and miss hearing them now.

    Blake-

    I think it’s just DD on Sheets.

    Boras/Damon really screwed up.

  121. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 8:56 am

    My history professor used to have a sign on his office door: Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

    What shocks me is that Damon/Boras learned nothing from what happened to Bobby Abreu, Orlando Hudson, Orlando Cabrera, and others last season.

    Abreu kept waiting for a payday that was never going to come and took a 1 year deal from the Angels. This year he grabbed their two year 20 mil deal with both hands the minute it was offered – and at the time I said “well there’s the perfect benchmark for Johnny Damon. 2 years 20 mil and he’s back.” and that’s what the Yankees offered and he balked, waiting for a payday that just wasn’t out there.

    Matsui was paying attention – he knew that there was a chance the Yankees would make him an offer, but in this baseball climate where the premium is put on younger players with lots of athletic ability, Matsui wasn’t going to be left out there without a chair when the music stopped and so he jumped at the first firm offer to cross his path. Randy Wolf did the same thing and snagged a 3 year 30 mil contract from the Brewers – Marquis did it with the Nationals – Joel Pinero on the other hand will be lucky to get a contract in the realm of what Wolf got despite being a younger, healthier and more reliable pitcher.

    That’s why Brian is in no rush to solidify his roster – it isn’t that he’s holding out for Damon or working on a super secret contract with him, it’s that there are so many options that there’s no reason to rush into a deal with a Reed Johnson or Rocco Baldelli – because if one of those guys signs then there are still five just like him and one less team bidding means the contract demands will drop a little lower.

  122. Parnis Hemsway January 19th, 2010 at 9:00 am

    I didn’t realize that Gaudin was so young – makes me more excited about the idea of retaining him moving forward. He could evolve into a #5 after Andy leaves if one of the young guns (Joba or Phil) doesn’t take a slot, or if Vasquez leaves after his contract ends. He was pretty good in NY, and was better than the other back of the rotation options they threw out there.

    He’s a big if, but he gives the team some rotation depth, which is nice. (especially since he is arguably the #7 pitcher in the rotation, and how many teams have a guy like that as their #7?).

  126. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 9:15 am

    By the way – regarding Jon Heyman’s post that the Yankees had the sixth best offseason, I can’t truly complain if he’s including players in that list, but if he means just teams then he’s far underselling them based solely on the fact that he thinks they should re-sign Damon. Here’s my list – players included:

    1. Seattle. Without losing anything of consequence they added an ACE to be their number 2 starter, locked in a very good third baseman and an underrated first baseman and added a little more thump to their lineup. At the same time they watched their main rival in the division take hit after hit after hit.

    2. Matt Holliday. With no real competition for his services he was still able to get a mammoth contract to play where he wanted to play in the first place.

    3. Detroit Tigers. Yes they had to give up Curtis Granderson and Edwin Jackson but did extremely well for themselves in the deal. Not that the Yankees gave up a ton for Granderson but to somehow get two starters with front of the rotation stuff and six years of cost control for Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy is amazing.

    4. Randy Wolf. Do you realize that of all pitchers he got the biggest contract this winter and, I believe, the 5th largest contract overall? This spot could be shared by Bobby Abreu, Chone Figgins and every other player who was smart enough to sign early.

    5. Pudge Rodriguez. Coming off the worst year in his career and a year in which he had to take a make good contract from the Astros, Pudge managed to get a 2 year contract from Washington for more than double the amount he made last year. True this says more about Washington’s ineptitude than anythinng else, but it doesn’t change the fact that Pudge is a big winner this winter.

    6. New York Yankees. They are a better defensive team than they were a year ago, just as dynamic an offensive team, and got a huge upgrade in their rotation while giving up only 1 key prospect (Jackson) who could have impacted the team in the next three years, without giving out a massive contract to a player, and without giving up their draft picks.

    7. Boston. They are also a better defensive team than they were last year and because of the signings of Bay and Wagner they don’t lose draft picks for picking up Lackey or Scutaro. The hits against the Sox are that their offense isn’t nearly as good as it was a year ago and their bench has no versatility with Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek taking up two spots.

    8. Phillies. Would be higher if they managed to keep Lee along with Halladay but you can’t argue with the fact that they got the best pitcher out there and signed him to a very reasonable extension. Would rather have seen them go a different route than Polanco at 3b but I don’t think he’ll make or break the Phillies’ chances.

    9. Baltimore. They won’t make the playoffs but I like what they’ve done. They brought in a veteran (Millwood) to help bring along their young pitchers and also got themselves a good 3b in Atkins who is due to bounce back. At this point, I think they could be a sleeper to snag Damon if he wants to stay in the AL East. He would do well in that park and add some veteran leadership to their team.

    10. Florida. Yes they had to be dragged to the altar by MLB, but getting the Josh Johnson signing done (and at a heck of a good price) makes them a winner. Johnson and Ramirez are the cornerstones of that team and now they’re both locked up for the near future.

  127. blake January 19th, 2010 at 9:19 am

    Some of you may be right on Damon. He may not even be on the Yankees radar anymore but I think its a bit naïve not to admit that its a least a possibility, especially when half of baseball thinks its going to happen.

  128. CountryClub January 19th, 2010 at 9:21 am

    Gaudin isnt worth 3 mil…but, he would have gotten a few hundred k more than that in arbitration. So, the yanks signing him before arb probably saved them a little bit of money. 3 mil for your 7th starter isnt bad.

  129. upstate kate January 19th, 2010 at 9:22 am

    I like your list Chip, altho I am not sure I would include Detroit…I guess it will depend on what they get out of their young pitchers.

    I hope Seattle has a good year and wins the west.

  130. blake January 19th, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Its great that these teams are working out extensions with their stars but can someone tell me why the players would accept them when they could make twice as much as free agents? Felix just accepted an extension for less money than Lackey signed for.

    Maybe they are just showing some loyality and if so that’s a great sign for the future of the sport.

  131. Frank January 19th, 2010 at 9:27 am

    “7. Boston. They are also a better defensive team than they were last year and because of the signings of Bay and Wagner they don’t lose draft picks for picking up Lackey or Scutaro. The hits against the Sox are that their offense isn’t nearly as good as it was a year ago and their bench has no versatility with Mike Lowell and Jason Varitek taking up two spots.”

    I’d argue that Hermida, Lowrie and Hall give them enough flexibility on their bench to start the year. Still think Lowell will be gone before opening day. Not really buying their offense took nearly the hit people believe either.

    “9. Baltimore. They won’t make the playoffs but I like what they’ve done. They brought in a veteran (Millwood) to help bring along their young pitchers and also got themselves a good 3b in Atkins who is due to bounce back. At this point, I think they could be a sleeper to snag Damon if he wants to stay in the AL East. He would do well in that park and add some veteran leadership to their team.”

    Wouldn’t necessarily say they had a good offseason, though the Millwood addition helps with the young pitchers like Matusz and Tillman. I just like the overall direction McPhail has been taking them since being there. So long as Angelos can stay out of the way, they stand to be a pretty good club, pretty soon.

  132. Frank January 19th, 2010 at 9:32 am

    “Its great that these teams are working out extensions with their stars but can someone tell me why the players would accept them when they could make twice as much as free agents? Felix just accepted an extension for less money than Lackey signed for.”

    Because free agency is 2 seasons away. The deal was supposedly 5 and $78M, which means the M’s bought out three years of FA. I’d be willing to bet the last three years of that deal are $20M each, which isn’t far off from what he’d see in the FA market. Some loyalty by Hernandez, but some security he can bank on too. Plus he’ll be able to enter free agency at basically the same age as Sabathia was when he did. That worked out reasonably well for him, no?

    How are the Cardinals ranked 3rd. They need 3rd base, pitching in both their rotation and pen along with a bat off bench?

    They signed a player with no other bidders, and upped their own offer (giving the largest contract in their club’s history) to sign Holliday. That’s not a high ranking offseason

  134. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 9:41 am

    And here are my big winter losers:

    1. Johnny Damon. We all know the reasons – could have had 2 years 20 mil, now will be lucky to get 1 year 5 mil. Also sharing this spot are Orlando Hudson, Orlando Cabrera, Jermaine Dye and Joel Pinero.

    2. LA Angels. Lost their number one starter, starting 3b/leadoff hitter, and their top relief prospect to injury and have only added Matsui whom they are planning to play in the OF from time to time. This team has gotten very old in the outfield, and very young in the rotation. They have a weak pen and the Mariners have gotten much better. Not a great combination.

    3. New York Mets. Signing Jason Bay was a plus, but they have not addressed their glaring need in the rotation, haven’t signed a catcher, lost thier best player before the season even starts to an injury that could keep him out until June, gotten into a controversy with that player, and still have both Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez under contract.

    4. Washington Nationals. I like the signing of Marquis as a veteran leader on that team, but unless Jesus Flores has a broken knee and shoulder I don’t get the Pudge deal. He’s old, he’s not nearly the player he once was, and he’s not the catcher you want to have bringing along your young pitchers.

    5. Texas Rangers. Trading Kevin Millwood was a good thing. Investing the money saved on Kevin Millwood in Rich Harden and Vladdy was not. Vlad’s going to hit, no doubt about it, but they are now a team that relies heavily on injury prone players. This was the year when the Angels were vulnerable, they should have gone after more sure things – the sale of the team does make it tough though.

    6. Atlanta Braves. Instead of just bringing back Gonzalez and Soriano the Braves went to Wagner and Saito, older players who don’t have health on their side. They also went from Adam LaRoche to Troy Glaus, and surrendered their top draft pick to the Red Sox for Wagner. They also gave up their ace for a fourth outfielder, a prospect too far away to project and a relief pitcher who doesn’t throw enough strikes. Throw in the fact that for the second time they have been screwed by a player accepting arbitration (Soriano did it this year and they had to trade him for pennies on the dollar; Maddux did it once upon a time forcing them to trade Millwood) and this was not a good offseason for Atlanta. Oh yeah, and they are still overpaying Derek Lowe.

    7. Teams trying to undo mistakes: Mike Lowell, Luis Castillo, Milton Bradley, Carlos Silva, Derek Lowe, Ollie Perez, Vernon Wells. All players that teams wanted to move to get their salaries off the books, some signed as recently as last year. The only ones to move were Bradley and Silva who were traded for each other. At some point teams will have to stop blaming the free agent system for not being able to compete and will start having to look at their own business practices.

    8. Reds. I get the appeal of Aroldis Chapman, but in a winnable division you’re telling me that the Reds wouldn’t have been better off giving that money to guys who can contribute this year instead? And Scott Rolen’s a good guy and all, but giving him a contract extension to shave a couple of bucks off this year’s payroll is just nutty.

    9. Boston Red Sox – they appear on both lists and not just because I don’t like Boston. They are better defensively then they were, no doubt. But Bay and Lowell out for Beltre and Cameron is a major hit offensively. Who knows what they’re going to get from Ortiz and Drew, they overpaid for Scutaro, they don’t have a great pen and were unable to unload Lowell or convince Varitek to decline his option and retire so now they are stuck paying the two of them a combined $15 mil to ride the bench.

    10a. St. Louis – Getting Holliday’s supposed to be a good thing but there are a lot of negatives to the signing, now they have to figure out how to keep Pujols. They also blew their budget on Matt and could have spent that money on a number of players – they have no third baseman since both Glaus and DeRosa are gone, the rotation took a hit with the likely departure of Piniero, they are losing Ankiel as well and no money to fill any of those holes.

    10b. San Francisco – a team in desperate need of offense and all they add are Mark DeRosa and Aubrey Huff? Really? Couldn’t have gone for Miguel Tejada, Johnny Damon, even Rick Ankiel here?

  135. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 9:47 am

    Frank –

    I don’t see how they’re going to unload Lowell before the season starts – and even if they do they are going to have to swallow at least 10 mil to do so (especially now that he’s failed his physical)

    I like Hermida, but I don’t see when he is going to play. He’s left handed, just like Ellsbury and Drew and so the Sox aren’t going to use him in any sort of platoon, and they also aren’t going to platoon him with Cameron. Bill Hall has been awful the last few years, and I can’t believe Varitek is going to be the good solider all season while he sits – more to the point, I can’t see Tito sitting him all season.

    My guess is that loyalty gets the best of Francona and we end up seeing a lot of Victor at 1b with Youk at 3rd and Varitek behind the plate.

  136. Chip January 19th, 2010 at 9:54 am

    Kate –

    I’m just in shock over what they got for Edwin Jackson. He’s had one very good half season in his entire career and is making triple what Scherzer and Schlereth are making. To think that they essentially flipped Ryan Raburn for those two is amazing. Unless Scherzer’s arm actually falls off I can’t see this not being a big win for Detroit, and with a young rotation of Verlander, Porcello, and Scherzer – my goodness, they are going to be a force for a while.

  137. Frank January 19th, 2010 at 10:07 am

    Chip:

    I don’t see them unloading Lowell WITHOUT paying $9M or $10M of his salary, but that’s a little less than they pay to have him not play in Boston.

    Hermida? You have a somewhat brittle Drew and a 37 year old Cameron. Be surprised if he didn’t get 300+ PA’s. Huge upgrade over Baldelli. Varitek gets 35 or so starts at C. Hall and Lowrie are no great shakes, but nobody’s bench is. They can be adequate fill ins in small spurts as needed. If they lose one of their infielders for an extended period, they’ve got a little bit of an issue, but then again, so would the Yankees.

  138. Ken January 19th, 2010 at 10:58 am

    I think this is good news. When the Yankees are the BEST is when there pitching is the Strongest.

  139. Raul January 19th, 2010 at 11:17 am

    Just bring J. Damon back and we are set for the season and number 28th.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

(There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Needed to send you a tiny observation in order to thank you yet again just for the unique knowledge you have discussed at this time. This has been certainly open-handed with people like you to offer freely just what a lot of folks could have advertised as an ebook to help make some profit for themselves, and in particular seeing that you could possibly have done it in case you considered necessary. Those suggestions also acted like a good way to be aware that most people have a similar zeal just like my personal own to figure out a great deal more in terms of this condition. I’m sure there are some more fun situations up front for many who find out your site.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
