    pat- yeah, definitely not the most exciting gossip break. ;)

    Interesting discussion I missed last night on foods, vitamins, exercise and whatnot.

    Frankly, my personal, completely uneducated belief, is that good health is largely dictated by genetics (so long as you’re not abusing alcohol, drugs, smoking etc.)

    I’m 67 and, at 6 foot, weigh 160 lbs – 5lbs more than I did in college.
    Thank goodness, I’ve never had any serious illnesses, get very few colds and have no problems with my weight. I do have back and knee problems due, I think, to running. But I gave that up a few years after I quit playing semi-pro ball at 35 and, since then, basically just cycle and walk. I’ve never taken vitamins and, apart from eating a lot fruit and having given up all but chicken, turkey and fish, I don’t pay much attention to a “balanced diet.” I don’t smoke and have only couple of glasses of wine with dinner.

    On the other hand, my wife, who is about the same age as me, has had to fight like crazy to keep from gaining too much weight. She has always paid strict attention to the foods she eats, takes vitamin supplements and reads volumes in heath books and magazines. Yet she is the one who has had several serious illnesses and has far more colds than I’ve had.

    Then there is a friend of ours who has just lost her parents in the last few years; her dad at 90 and her mom at 95! Both were immigrants to the U.S. – Italy and The Netherlands – and neither had the first idea about any kind of special diets, never took any vitamins and didn’t have any kind of organized exercise activities.

    Yes, I guess you could say that they might have lived even longer and better had they done some of the things that people were speaking about. But, at the end of the day, I still think it’s genetic hand that you’ve been dealt that determines how long you live and how healthy you are.

    Good to see their taking care of Randy and his age group. $5 tickets in specially marked seats. Really great that they have changing stations and their own bathrooms close to the seating.

  4. MTU March 27th, 2012 at 9:13 am

    YT-

    I think their could be numerous teams interested.

    For example the Braves.

    They are very thin on Pitching right now due to injuries and what not.

    I think the Mutts could also use Freddy.

    My question is what do they have to offer us in return that would be worth our while ?

    Not at all opposed to expanding the deal a bit if it would help get us something of value.

  5. Yankee Trader March 27th, 2012 at 9:18 am

    GB-

    Can’t find a definitive answer if performance bonuses are transferrable in a trade. I’m going to say that all terms of a signed contract are transferrable and the player might have to sign a new, simarly worded contract with his new team.

    However professonal athletes are treated differently, than just us ordinary folk!

  6. GreenBeret7 March 27th, 2012 at 9:20 am

    I’d need to look at the farm teams of the Braves and Mets to see what position players they may have. NYYs aren’t getting a Daniel Murphy type from the Mets. One could hope that Texas had a need, I suppose. David Murphy wouldn’t be a bad exchange for Garcia. A solid corner outfielder with a fair amount of power and speed.

  7. blake March 27th, 2012 at 9:22 am

    I wonder if the Phillies have called about Nunez? Not saying Id trade him there but Utleys situation is totally up in the air and their offense stinks right now….at a time when they really need to win now. Wonder if they’d over pay for a guy like Nunie?

  8. MTU March 27th, 2012 at 9:23 am

    Couple of things on Garcia :

    Prefer he gets traded to an NL team.

    Don’t want to see his value underestimated. He’s battle-tested in the AL East. He’s a solid addition to any team regardless of his age. He’s slotted as a back-end guy but he could easily outperform that.

  9. Yankee Trader March 27th, 2012 at 9:25 am

    MTU-

    The Braves are moving Prado to 3rd until Chipper is healthy enough to resume playing there. Hinske and Diaz are sharing time in LF. Freeman and Heyward are not hitting. The Braves will not take on salary as they are at their max ceiling.

    They need hitting-specifically a corner OF’er, to allow Prado to assume a full utility role.

    Most likely they will scoop up Justin Maxwell when the Yankees unfortunately put him on waivers, as he is out of options.

    Bottom line-Braves are cheap and will not take on Garcia’s 4+M dollar contract.

  10. MTU March 27th, 2012 at 9:26 am

    GB-

    I like Murphy. Always have.

    I’d hate to help the Rangers even if it helps us.

    I very much doubt these 2 teams could do buisness. I think there might be bad blood.

  11. MTU March 27th, 2012 at 9:30 am

    OK YT.

    Let’s forget the Bravos then.

    Too bad for them because they really need pitching right now and I’m sure Garcia would approve a trade there.

    Cincy and the Brew crew might be able to use him. As well as the Pads.

    Just not sure Freddy would approve a trade to those types of places.

  12. GreenBeret7 March 27th, 2012 at 9:30 am

    Trader, in the end, I’m not sure that garcia would fair that well in that park, but, like you, I really like what Murphy brings as a solid all-around player. His only problem was that he has always been on a team with sluggers in those two spots.

  13. GreenBeret7 March 27th, 2012 at 9:31 am

    Actually, that was to MTU. You guys all look alike.

  14. Yankee Trader March 27th, 2012 at 9:33 am

    Blake-

    Phillies wanted Pena. I don’t think they would have anything of value to include in a trade for Nunez, that would immediately help the Yankees by the loss of the valuable Nunez.

    Maybe they”ll take back Ibanez! :)

  15. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 27th, 2012 at 9:33 am

    yanks61, I agree that genetics play a part but you are also living a pretty healthy lifestyle according to what you’ve said. I think the way people process stress also plays into health. Since stress compromises the immune system, people who tend to be “stressed out” more than others are also more prone to come down with illnesses. It is those people who probably need the vitamin regimen more than others. I think the part of the country you live in can also play a part. I have an uncle who moved to Florida about 10 years ago and it looks like he discovered the fountain of youth. Of course it doesn’t hurt that he can probably afford to buy the fountain of youth! He has a pretty idylic life.

    I think I’m a pretty healthy kid, but I could be a lot healthier if I forced myself to get enough rest. I don’t take great care of myself and though I don’t eat fried foods, I am not a real heathy eater because I don’t cook and therefore rely a lot on fast food. The one thing I can say is that if sweets were the answer to great health – nobody would be healthier than I!

    I definitely need to add C back to my regimen. I will always be hyperactive and I will always burn the candle at both ends. And I will never cook, ha ha. So I need to keep a good level of Vitamin C in my system.

    You think that’s bad.

    Well get this.

    Mrs. MTU hates to cook too but guess what she does for a living ?

    At least you can avoid it.

    Oh, the irony.

    Since Freddy goes nowhere until June 16th unless he agrees to it, I think it makes great sense to have him around in the event that Andy doesn’t get his groove back or another one of our pitchers has a problem.

    We start out with a glut of pitchers sometimes but we never end up with a glut. Someone always ends up getting hurt, not working out, etc.

    Patience, dear grasshoppers.

    And then again, the Ys and Freddy could be working out something behind the scenes. That’s the only way Freddy moves before June.

    Let’s just enjoy what he brings. Nothing is written in stone yet.

    Hughes appears to be locking up the No. 5 starter spot, Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News reports.

    Recommendation: Given his pedigree and that simple fact that Andy Pettitte is going to need time to get ready for the season, it’s not a huge surprise. Hughes is ultimately competing with Ivan Nova to remain in the rotation upon Pettitte’s return, but there’s reason to think he’ll emerge as the better option during the first month-plus of the season.

    One of the best ways to cut a significant amount of calories out of your diet is to drink mostly water.

    It was really tough at first, but over the last two years, the only time I drink anything else is in my morning smoothies (2 cups of skim milk).

    It’s astonishing how many calories you consume per day in drinks alone, especially if you like to tip a few adult beverages or engage in the cola wars.

    Drinking pop was my biggest bugaboo for many years. Lots of empty calories.

    how can Bill gates and Steve Jobs be smart enough to make computers and programs and not smart enough to put erasers on them?

  29. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 27th, 2012 at 9:49 am

    MTU – that definitely is irony!

    :D

    My best friend is an awesome cook and she takes pity on me lots and gives me food! But I think that if I lived in her house I would weigh 1000 pounds! She moved here from Italy when she was 8, but her family (parents) really brought her up in a traditional Italian household. So she’s brought that same thing into her family life. She never serves fewer than 3 courses, and the portion sizes are humungous. When she serves macaroni, the dishes she uses are almost as big as the macaroni bowl. And that’s only the first course!

    My parents were healthy cooks so at least I had a good foundation. If I had the money, I’d hire a cook and eat nothing but healthy meals. But I don’t, so oh well!

    Drinking lots of water is so healthy. I keep promising myself to drink more of it. But I need it to taste sweet. :) I’ve been using NuStevia in place of sweetners so maybe I could just make lemonade and drink it that way.

    Texas is really struggling to find a LHRP (they released Mitch Stetter and Joe Beimel yesterday leaving them with an unappealing group of Neal Cotts, Michael Kirkman and Robbie Ross). With as well as Cabral and Repada have been pitching this spring, might the Yankees and Rangers consider a Boone Logan for David Murphy swap?

  46. Shame Spencer March 27th, 2012 at 10:08 am

    Since, joining ESPN, Marchand has become less of a writer and more of a hack like his fellow ESPN hack.

    it’s interesting to watch how people talk about health here and strategies for health.

    i think it’s gives some real insight into how they think about baseball and how to get baseball success.

    in health , staying alive and living a high quality of life is of course the goal.

    in baseball i guess the goal is simply winning. that’s the equivalent of being healthy.

    health is incredibly complex though one can be healthy without understanding the complexity or vice versa and be unhealthy and understand the complexity.

    my father is 90. he worked full time in my business in the summer until last summer when we decided he should take a break. he wasn’t happy about that and said he was kind of bored last summer.

    so is it genetics or the fact he grew up on a farm in that essentially produced organic and really healthy food in the old days or was it pure genetics like yanks61 believes. or maybe a mixture of the two?

    my father by the way is not on any pharmaceuticals by the way. that’s mostly from me over the years intervening and providing a natural alternative to the doctor’s prescription. as an aside,i belive if you tae a lot of pharmaceuticals, you’re probably going to die sooner than later because most of them have so many side effects.

    health isn’t an easy subject. do you think someone like steve jobs didn’t eat healthy? do you think he didn’t have the resources to know everything about it, and yet he died from a disease.

    so when we are talking about something simple like how to make a baseball team better we should remember that if it’s like health there is a complexity to it that we can know or not know and still be right or wrong knowing or not knowing.

    i guess i’m saying there is a whole lot of luck too in the process of both baseball success and being healthy. i eat really healthily compared to the average american, but
    as a kid working in tobacco fields i had planes drop DDT on my head with my coworker friends. i worked high up on skyscrapers in colorado when they were putting asbestos on steel girders. i also had owned a natural food heath store at uconn before that and was eating a whole lot of brown rice and miso soup. so was i being healthy?

    so far so good, but who knows? ticking time bombs and all that. i will say that by living in a healthy way you increase the odds. you increase the probability.

    only time will tell if this blog creates so much stress that it will hasten our demise, or on the other hand create healthy stress that makes us stronger.

    of course, sometimes dying might be preferable to having to be on the blog during some games :)

    I read ESPN’s MLB rankings. Of course since they would look like the total D-Bags they are if they had the Sux ranked #1 in the AL East, they stayed away from that. But unlike virtually the rest of the world that has ranked the Yanks #1, ESPN decided to rank the Rays #1. I have nothing against the Rays of course, but the Yanks are so loaded it almost scares me.

    Oh well.

  54. Shame Spencer March 27th, 2012 at 10:13 am

    Are you looking at ESPN’s current rankings, or their “future rankings”?

  56. Crawdaddy March 27th, 2012 at 10:16 am

    You want ESPN to not rank the Yankees #1 as they’re wrong most of the time.

    —————-

    Oh come on – it was my first one this week – I’m a little rusty.

    As for Marchand – I feel like when a local guy goes national (as he did) the audience that was used to reading him always gets this feeling. They have to be so alert of perceived “homerism” that they sometimes go too far the other way with it. Unless of course you’re Peter Gammons.

  58. stuckey March 27th, 2012 at 10:17 am

    Chamberlain to meet with the media today, expected to to tell them there was not any severe blood loss, his life was never in danger, and his injury is not career threatening.

  59. Shame Spencer March 27th, 2012 at 10:17 am

    trisha – I was watching ESPN yesterday (against my will!) and they had this ridiculous segment on Tebow that blew me away. They had these two ‘experts’ have a ‘debate’ over who is the better player and they used their stats from last year to evaluate. All the while, never mentioning that Sanchez’s numbers for his entire career weren’t being factored in. Only those from last season. Made me laugh even more when they again brought up how Tebow is “obviously a proven winner.” OBVIOUSLY?! I wanted to hurl something at the tv it was so offensive to literate people.

    Bottom line: ESPN can suck it.

    “Whoa. Giving the Phillies Nunez? Who for? I don’t want to trade Nunez; he’s become a necessity.”

    Given their situation I woukd just be curious to know if they’ve called about him and if they would over pay for him given that they really need to win now with their roster construction….

    stuckey – I read it in the ESPN magazine for this month. I don’t subscribe to that intentionally, by the way. When I played fantasy baseball, I wanted to be able to read the Insider and part of subscribing to that was getting ESPN the magazine free. I typically don’t read it but since I started going to the gym I need something to distract me. I am assuming they’re talking this season.

    Craw, I agree. On top of it, I think if they ranked the Yanks #1 it would be to try to put some kind of curse of them.

    Well, they’d really have to overpay. We have a strong need for a UIF (who can double as an OF) who has a quick bat, gap power and who can steal a base for us.

I’m just not sure he has the quiver factor I need to compete with Gale’s hotness lol. I mean, in the end, she picks one or the other so you’d think they’d wanna make it a little more even. Poor Josh :( I definitely like the Helmsworth guy a lot more when he doesnt talk. Big plus for me re: the movie lol. It wasn’t about the triangle at all, I loved that, because the books are so much more.

    Did you hear all this noise about people freaking out over them making some of the characters black in the movie?! Like spitting a lot of really racist sh*t all over Twitter cause Rue was black?! I’ve never seen anything like this…. and from people that have read the books its even more crazy cause I’m not sure what you read that you liked if you’re bugging over someone being a black kid.

    I think if I were the Yankees I would have to do it. I agree with you about the age at SS and 3b but we’re also looking at a FA in RF who is 50/50 to be retained at this point. Brown has a lot more upside to his game than Nunez does too.

    Why would the Yankees trade Boone Logan? With Logan, the Yankees know what they have in boone Logan and over the last two years, that’s a pretty valuable and consistant pitcher. You can’t say the same about Rapada and Cabral.

    Nunez is an interesting guy… I like him on our team but he could be so much more of an asset on another club. Definitely wouldn’t sell low on him.

    Hey Chip, what could we get from the Mets, Phils, Marlins, Royals or Pirates for a package that is based around both Garcia and Nunez?

    In fact, I’ll direct that at everyone and not just hog all of Chip’s time ;)

    I think Garcia + Nunez + a prospect could bring back a pretty good haul actually.

  85. trisha - true pinstriped blue March 27th, 2012 at 10:33 am

    “i’m undecided on the subject, but lean to it not mattering much.”

    It may not, but it also may give them a boost of confidence that they take into the season. I don’t think there is necessarily a positive correlation between finishing on top and finishing that way for the season. But for certain teams, especially those who don’t ordinarily achieve, it may be medicinal for the psyche. And having swagger doesn’t hurt!

    NY might be able to get a decent value for Nunez, but, not full value for his talents, and certainly can’t get enough value to cover what it would cost NY if they were put in the position to make an emergency trade to fill a Rodriguez or Jeter position if they got hurt.

  91. DONNYBROOK March 27th, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Completely disagree concerning Brown having “more upside” than Nunez. Nunez has already achieved success at the MLB Level at several positions, and has Not topped out.

    The problem is, the Yankees need him in pinstripes. They have no convincing answer for SS if Jeter goes down. If the Yankees are peddling Nunez, which I doubt, they’re certifiable. Didn’t they refuse to give him up on their second attempt to be rid of Montero? He’s Jeter insurance.

  93. Joe from Long Island March 27th, 2012 at 10:39 am

    playing nunez in the of has a lot of benefit – if not for the yanks, then maybe for another team.

    i could see the phillies being interested in nunez, a lot more so than ramiro pena.

    nunez for brown? i think it really depends on brown’s hitting. initially, i think he had problems with a swing that was too long. i saw him play in clearwater a couple weeks ago, and his first ab it looked like he shortened up a bit, and hit a strong line drive. however, his following two abs it looked like he got a lot longer to the ball, and didn’t drive the ball either time. so, i don’t know if he’s consistently gotten a shorter swing.

    long story short, it really depends on the yanks doing their scouting diligence here, in regards to brown, before i would make that trade.

    on another note, i could see them packaging a starter – garcia, say – along with one of the lefties, maybe cabral – in a deal.

    _______________________

    Its when reading posts like this I get confused as to what standard of criteria people are using exactly?

    Dominic Brown is universally regarded as having higher upside than Nunez. He was the #4 prospect in baseball a year ago according to BA.

    He is a lefty power bat, who has yet to get in a full season at the ML’s yet.

    But okay, one prefers immediate success at the ML level as an indicator. We can do that.

    Dom Brown’s OPS was .027 points higher in 2011 than Nunez’s.

    So how has Nunez achieved success that Brown has not?

    The answer is because Brown’s ceiling is MUCH higher than .725 and Nunez’s isn’t nearly as high, so Nunez’s .698 is regarded as success at the ML level and Brown’s is regarded a disappointment.

    There is virtually no objective measure by which if the Yankees offered Dom Brown for Nunez straight up, you don’t say “yes, please” before Amaro completes the sentence.

If things are going right, he’s not much of a factor. I just think if you can’t get good value for just Nunez or just Garcia, but can for both, you do it, IMO. I like Nunez on our bench, but I think we could find someone else to fill that role if we needed to.

    Lack of power is the only thing keeping Williams from being labeled a five tool player, but I always felt he would develop decent power as he continued to fill out. Angelo Gumbs on the other hand has tremendous power potential. Charleston is gonna be a fun team to follow this year

    I think Nunez for Brown is interesting as I posted…..I think Id make Philly kick in more though to do the deal seeing as how they are desperate and also that they don’t believe Brown is good enough to be in the big leagues now. I liked what I from his swing this spring and Lefty bats are always nice in YS……the problem of course is that Nunez is pretty valuable for the Yankees for 2012…..

    She was on a month of a tetracycline-type antibiotic, followed by boosters of lyme vaccine. We caught it early b/c she had started limping, and we had found quite a few ticks on her, despite being on tick preventative meds. We suspected Lyme’s and the vet was happy to test for it. She had not been vaccinated prior b/c the vaccine is not that effective, and we previously did not have a large tick population.

    Yet the “go wrong” factor probability is on the increase, with a 37 year old SS and 36 year old 3B (who’s coming off hip and knee surgery).

    I also don’t think of Nunez as just a safety plan who has to have an injury occur to get playing time.

    With the exit of Montero, the need for a hitter like Nunez has gone up in Yankeeland. If anything, they should be finding creative ways to get him into the lineup.

  147. Chip March 27th, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Nunez for Brown is an interesting concept but it’s also got its drawbacks:

    1. Dom Brown is quickly becoming a bust – this is now three years in a row where he’s been given a chance to win a roster spot but hasn’t been able to do so. Also he’s suffered a series of flukey injuries. So while the potential is there the question is whether he will ever live up to it.

    2. Nunez, while flawed, is still a good back-up option for the Yankees at positions where they need good depth. If you trade Eduardo you’re looking at some combination of Ramiro Pena, Brandon Laird, Billy Hall and Eric Chavez if Jeter or Alex get hurt.

    Lyme is a big deal in Princeton area as well. Lots of woodlands and moisture.

    I suspect lyme is an underlying or undetected cause in a lot of disorders, such as rheumatism, heart problems, etc.

    One theory is that constant building at the cost of woodlands and forests has increased the problem over the years, because deer and rodents are spending more and more time in people’s yards, parks, etc.

    Nunez is basically the backup for the DH. He will play SS & 3B giving Jeter & ARod ABs at DH. His speed is a game changer. I truly hope Maxwell gets added to the roster because of the same thing. He plays very good D & has blazing speed. Both have some pop as well.

    The assignment of Iglesias to AAA may be the first public indication of the rift between Valentine and the GM who didn’t actually want Valentine in the first place.

    Valentine was picked by Larry Lucchino – Ben Cherrington preferred one of the guys that he and Theo were discussing after Tito left and before Theo went to the cubs, but Lucchino picked Bobby V.

    Anyway – Valentine wanted Iglesias to be his starting SS over Mike Aviles/Nick Punto and has been over ruled by Cherrington – this should be fun to watch.

    I read that Brown’s D was the reason he was sent down, and not his bat. His D has supposedly been pretty awful and they want him to go down and improve his play, have him in LF I believe. I think his bat/plate discipline has improved, but he isn’t putting up the power numbers they expected. Probably I will get a chance to see him play in a couple of weeks when I go see SWB at LHV.

    I agree – it’s a really interesting trade and a big risk for both clubs. On the one hand Brown has a lot more talent than Nunez, the question is whether or not he’ll put it together.

    In the end – I think an everyday OF is more valuable than a back up MI and would make the deal. You’ll have guys like Adams and Joseph coming up; you’ve still got Pena, Laird and Chavez and picking up a MI midseason isn’t the hardest thing in the world to do.

    actually i get them the most because i hate buying golf balls.

    i stand on the tee box and think ” where would people like gb 7 lose their ball?”

    that’s almost always off to the right because that kind of golfer slices the crap out of the ball.

    there are a few places on the links course along the ocean i play in that have literally hundreds of balls just sitting there like in a golf store . i only take the high quality ones. titleist pro v1′s are my favorites.

    i have to go through brush and stickers that a sane person wouldn’t attempt, and then there s a short window to do it when the season is over , but the spring growth hasn’t kicked in yet.

    I think you’re over rating the ability to find a good hitting short stop. Nunez is a pretty talented player. Guys who have bat speed like that and can play the position aren’t available in trades.

    We had a lot of infielders in the system who started at SS and were moved elsewhere. None of them could stay at the position. They’re just not that easy to find, or to grow. Nunez is actually something of a rarity.

    and a few have gotten the red bullseye that makes you have to go to the doctor and get antibiotics ( now that’s something i believe in).

    ———————————————————————-

    I never saw the bullseye and I suspect I had it for over 10yrs before I knew.

    Alot harder to treat when it is what they call cronic.

    As far as antibotics, it’s not easy to find doctors that will prescribe them for long enough for someone with cronic LD.

    JAP – Again, I just disagree.

    I do recognize Nunez’s value… but he has more with a club that will let him play every day. He’s not a starter here and would be on another team. When you have players like that sitting around, I’d rather move them. I just don’t get bent outta shape over the bench players, no matter how good or how much I love watching them play (Miguel Cairo!). They’re all interchangeable pieces in my eyes. I wouldn’t ship him out for free, but I’d more than listen to offers for him and I’d absolutely explore what a package including him and Garcia could get you.

    I’m not down on the guy. I think he’s a really talented player and I do see how valuable he can be for us this season because of his diversity… but if I had the chance to get something in return that could help us, I’d do it.

  199. yankeefeminista March 27th, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Nunez is maligned but he is multifaceted and could be a super utility player for this team in 2012. He probably has better bat speed than most of our hitters. He just needs to get enough work in to stay sharp on both sides of the ball. Of course he isn’t a lefty and he is not going to give you the pop you’d hope to get from a COF. But his value is that he can play SS (most of the time); no reason why he can’t play RF when needed, as well. I think the Yankees value him more than most people think. And he will probably get into more games this year than in the past.

  200. stuckey March 27th, 2012 at 11:39 am

    Soler is a 19 year old prospect.

    There is a limit to which 19 year old prospects make sense in any other context than being 19 year old prospects.

  201. yankeefeminista March 27th, 2012 at 11:41 am

    Yeah, blake, will give a report on Brown after I see him. Probably will see him quite a few times in April b/c SWB has a few games in LHV.

    As for Soler, I wish he’d take a minor league deal but with the competition for him, I would think he will be able to get a major league one, unfortunately.

    JAP-

    Only one good use for a tick.

    A good place for some gasoline and a match.

    Provided they are already off the body of course.

    I love the smell of burning ticks in the morning.

    :)

    “One theory is that constant building at the cost of woodlands and forests has increased the problem over the years, because deer and rodents are spending more and more time in people’s yards, parks, etc.”

    there’s a suburban deer herd problem in so east ma that has to carry a lot of deer ticks which are the real bad guys. lots of deer on cape cod too. way more than you’d think.

    i was on I-495 coming towards the cape a few years ago and 5-6 deer just walked into the right lane as i was driving by. that was interesting.

  204. Shame Spencer March 27th, 2012 at 11:41 am

    If there were other middle infield alternatives in baseball, Philadelphia would have filled it by now. They knew in December that Utley wasn’t healthy.
    ————————–

    A fair point, and very true. But who’s to say we couldn’t get an IF prospect back? I’m not saying we need to move him, I’m just saying he’s still only a back up and will be all season. And next season. And… well.. you get what I mean. Unless they decide they want Nunez to be our RF next year, I don’t know where he fits. Didn’t we trade some other guy because he didn’t have a position….. :lol:

  205. Chip March 27th, 2012 at 11:42 am

    How about this for a deal:

    Justin Maxwell to the Mets for Bobby Parnell and Kirk Nieuwenhuis?

    Maxwell’s not making the 25 – sad but true – but he would make the Mets and could even push Andres Torres for the starting CF job.

    Parnell on the other hand is being pushed further out in the Mets pecking order for relief pitchers, Nieuwenhuis is a decent prospect who has had issues staying healthy, but has options and could play in AAA.

  206. yankeefeminista March 27th, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Shame, you won’t get in return what Nunez is worth to the Yankees though.

    it’s a ticks vs free golf ball question.

    The price of a golf ball is cheap compared to the cost of Lyme.

    ////

    He’s a starter if your 37 year-old SS goes down. With age, the potential for injury increases. What do the Yankees do, if Jeter goes down? Now, I don’t even want to contemplate that, but it’s something that you need insurance against.

    Who is your SS, if it happens?

    “I never saw the bullseye and I suspect I had it for over 10yrs before I knew.

    yeah, that’s a problem.

    one of my potters had it for years without knowing it and everyone thought he was losing his mind and being a slacker letting his business fall apart. then he was diagnosed with lyme disease and it all made sense. he still isn’t back to normal though.

  211. yankeefeminista March 27th, 2012 at 11:46 am

    When I arrive home late at night, there are sometimes 20 deer sitting on my lawn. They just look into the headlights for a moment, blink, and go back to eating the grass. They are so used to being around humans that even seeing a car doesn’t phase them. I think there are some herbs that are Lyme preventative. Astragalus is one of them.

  212. Shame Spencer March 27th, 2012 at 11:49 am

    “Who is your SS, if it happens?”

    Who is our catcher right now if Russell Munson goes down? You think Cervelli and Romine are going to couple together to = Martin? It just doesn’t shake out like that. IMO you don’t let that hold you back from possibly getting a good return for a player that you know has no future as a starter for your team.

    fem – I do understand that but considering what everyone is telling me about how hard it is to find a guy like Nunez, we should be able to get something nice in return, no? Especially since, again, his value would be higher as a starter for another club. I understand how he’s valuable to us.. I’m just willing to explore exactly how valuable he might be to other teams.

  213. randy l. March 27th, 2012 at 11:49 am

    “The price of a golf ball is cheap compared to the cost of Lyme.”

    i assume every time i go out to play golf that i’m going to get a tick, so i take an immediate shower and make sure no ticks. i’m careful with throwing clothes in wash right away too.

    ticks can easily get in the house in a lot of ways. you just have to really pay attention to them.
    when is the bad tick season in maine?
    i haven’t noticed many in cape elizabeth yet this spring.
