Now what?

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 05, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

While Joe Girardi sat at lunch with the Yankees beat writers, two potential third basemen came off the board.

Jeff Keppinger has signed with the White Sox for three years, $12 million. Eric Chavez has signed with the Diamondbacks for one year, $3 million. Girardi acknowledged that the Yankees had talked about both players. Now the team’s third base situation is as uncertain as ever, with two options — a pair that might have been a nice platoon combination — no longer on the market.

A few thoughts…

• There’s plenty to like about both players, but it says a lot about the state of the Yankees offense that there’s a “what are they going to do now” reaction to guys like Keppinger and Chavez coming off the board. Those are complimentary players, not high-impact guys, yet the third base situation is so uncertain that losing those two really does feel like a huge blow.

• I can understand not wanting to give Keppinger a three-year deal, but one year, $3 million for Chavez? Why not match or top that deal? Wonder if Chavez simply wanted to stay at home in Arizona and money wasn’t a huge issue. Also wonder if the Yankees had major concerns about his health.

• Recognizing that his defense has been a real problem, at this point doesn’t Eduardo Nunez have to be the top internal candidate to be the Yankees starting third baseman? Give David Adams, Corban Joseph and Ronnier Mustelier a look, but Nunez is the most proven player in the bunch. If all else fails — and surely the Yankees will do something eventually — who’s a better option than Nunez?

• In this market, it might be better to start focusing on the less obvious solutions. Brian Cashman has surprised us before, but so far, the only surprise is how little the Yankees have done.

    Give Nunie a chance in spring training.

    Nunez will be traded before the season starts. His D is worthless.

    Nunez has played in the majors and his bat has been ok, for a SS, but Mustelier’s numbers in the minors have far exceeded Nunez’.

  5. mick December 5th, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Why not Mustelier?
    He plays some 3B and the OF and has hit.
    Maybe we will get younger this season?
    Isn’t this what ppl want?

    Shocker. Turn on the FAN and Mike is talking about the Mets. If it’s not the Jets they are talking Mets. This is part of the reason the Yanks are able to get away with the crap they are pulling

    ———————

    Which is weird because he just had Sweeny on wtf

  7. Mike in Harrisburg December 5th, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Absent the rotation, when was the last time we gave a rookie the ball and told him to run with it? Cano taking over for Womack?

  8. Patrick December 5th, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Eric Chavez showed he is all about the money cuz how do you sign a one year deal with the Diamondbacks?

    What? Why shouldn’t he be all about the money?

  9. mick December 5th, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    In 2014 if they lose Andy, Kuroda,Mo, Cano and Granderson….we can be this years redsox.

    Behind Cano, Chavez had the next highest OPS of any regular last year…. I realize that due to his fragility Chavez cannot play everyday anymore but he was much more than a “complimentary player” last year… He is a big loss.

  11. austinmac December 5th, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    Chad is channeling his inner Cashman when he describes less obvious solutions. What that means is worse solutions. It is a process waiting for the worse players to become obviously unwanted by others.

  12. ac1 December 5th, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    Nunez will be traded before the season starts. His D is worthless.
    ___

    It wasnt always and they could get someone in there to work with him.

    New thoughts: Open competitions

    3B: Nunez/Musteiler/Adams
    C: Romine/Murphy/Cervelli (still hope they sign AJ)
    RF: Almonte/Almonte/Mesa/Dickerson (unless they find someone better)

  13. cs in la December 5th, 2012 at 3:37 pm

    Cashman will pull something huge out, just watch. There is a plan.

    Jeter SS
    Gardner CF
    Tex 1B
    Cano 2B
    Nunez 3B
    Granderson LF
    Romine C
    Musteliar RF
    Adams DH

    Why can’t we win with this team? You can switch Adams and Nunez.

  16. BX33 December 5th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Adams, Co-Jo, etc. are career utility players. At least let Nunez get the start because he has the potential to be a starter for us down the line.

  17. DONNYBROOK December 5th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Cashman went outta his way just the other day to mention that Nunez was a SS, and was not gonna be considered as a replacement at 3B for A-Rod. Of course this was before Cashman dropped the ball numerous times while attempting to sign a 3B.

  18. jacksquat December 5th, 2012 at 3:40 pm

  19. fantasygame101 December 5th, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    trade granderson for a legit 3b then re-sign ichiro.

  20. I Am Winning December 5th, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    All we need in right field and 3rd base are good defenders to hit 8th and 9th if the nearly half a billion dollar duo would actually play a little competitive ball.

    It’s unbelievable to think we need 6 $20m a year batters to be competitive. It’s not like this doesn’t happen to other teams, it just kills the Yankeea because of the length and size of the contract. Players underperform way more than they exceed expectations.

    With that being said, ARod and Tex are what they are offensively, and maybe signing Swisher wouldn’t have been such a bad idea.

  21. DONNYBROOK December 5th, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Youk, following in the footsteps of Boggs, wants to go Yankee.

  22. Jerkface December 5th, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Very hard to win with a lineup that has Nunez, Mustelier, Romine, & Adams all expecting to get significant playing time or starting in the same lineup.

    That lineup also has 2 guys out of position.

  23. Against All Odds December 5th, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Jeter SS
    Gardner CF
    Tex 1B
    Cano 2B
    Nunez 3B

    Adams DH

    Why can’t we win with this team? You can switch Adams and Nunez.

    ———————–

    You would be relying on 3 rookies

  24. Russell Munson December 5th, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    The Yankees don’t need offense out of 3B or RF. They just need someone who can field the position and situationally hit.

  25. Triple Short of a Cycle December 5th, 2012 at 3:43 pm

    Well at least we have Tex to carry the team until Arod comes back. Oh wait

  32. austinmac December 5th, 2012 at 3:46 pm

    Mustelier is reportedly not very good defensively. We shall soon find out. Youkilis isn’t coming in all liklihood.

  33. mick December 5th, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    Who’s out of position? Gardner and Grandy can be changed.
    Mustelier or Adams can also get a shot at 3rd and Nunez can DH.
    Don’t be so anal…

  34. spidanyc December 5th, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Yankees: Olt and Upton

    Listen – the only team Hamilton can platoon on is the Dodgers – and at the rate their going – he might be a pinch hitter with their current funding levels – – – -

    Right, he is a guy that has a wide platoon split (.150 points) but would never really be platooned, because he is hits great vs the side that throws 66% of the time. He isn’t an A-rod or Pujols though, whose OPS are the same vs both hands. A-rod’s career OPS numbers vs LHP & RHP are .001 points apart.

    *****

    I find your lack of sense of humor disturbing – - – -(I would link to Darth Vader youtube scene right now – but cannot get youtube – dang)

    Maybe people are choosing to stay away from NYC because of how public Cashman is making these issues regarding the CBA and 2014…..

    RONNIER MUSTELIER
    RONNIER MUSTELIER
    RONNIER MUSTELIER
    RONNIER MUSTELIER
    RONNIER MUSTELIER

    - Just turned 28 in August so he’s much younger than A-Rod.

    - Bats righthanded.

    - From Cuba which has turned out some good players, (El Duque, Cespedes et.al.)

    - . 324/.378./.497/.875 career slashline with only 85 SO in 656 PA in two minor league seasons.

    - Quintipled his homerun total in 2012 (3 HR in 2011 to 15 in 2012.)

    - Better gloveman than A-Rod and certainly Eduardo Nunez.

    - Could play some LF.

    – Can steal a base (19 SB in 27 SB attempts including 16 for 20 outside of his bad patch 3 for 7 with Trenton.)

    - Low-risk, high-reward.

    - Is more MLB-ready than fellow Yankee farmhands David Adams and Corbin Joseph.

    NO to Kevin Youkilis, Mark Reynolds, Scott Rolen, Casey McGhee, Adams, and Joseph.

  39. mick December 5th, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Polanco will fall in our laps and will play for free.

  40. blake December 5th, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    @KenDavidoff: The #Yankees and Eric Chavez never held substantive conversations about contract terms.

    How did the Yanks basically not even talk to Chavez unless they had another iron in the fire that they felt good about?

  41. Yankee Trader December 5th, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Cashman will sign someone when a player tells him he’ll play for free.

    There is no Granderson trade coming. He’s been quietly shopped since early November.

    When you call Brian Cashman’s phone you get this message.”Hello, please leave a message if you are an agent or player willing to play for free or at most a one year contract for the New York Yankees. “

  42. luis December 5th, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Mick,

    Hi… Yes, I could live with that lineup… But probably they will prefer some vets instead… I would play Adams at third though.

    Odds,

    Hey buddy… Yes, three rookies, but what they probably could get on the market is probably far worse, but I think they will go with the vets instead. I hope they would go after Hamilton, but I don’t think they will. Or they could gut the farm, which would be even worse and shortsighted.

  43. Jerkface December 5th, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    Blake-

    As soon as players and their agents found out that the Yankees needed a 3rd baseman Cashman was getting all kinds of calls. Maybe Chavez saw the writing on the wall and wanted to play elsewhere and never called him.

  49. kd December 5th, 2012 at 3:57 pm

    The Yanks have to find 79 home runs from somewhere in 2013…and counting.

    That’s what Swisher (24), Martin (21), ARod (18) and Chavez (16) contributed.

    We can maybe put Cervelli down for one and Nunez for 9 or 10. Where are the rest coming from?

  68. Shame Spencer December 5th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

  69. SonyBravo December 5th, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    I’d love to see Nunez get a chance. He should play winter ball and spring training as a pure third baseman. With some intensive work at one position, maybe there’s hope? If Nunie can catch the ball at all, he’s the kind of player the Yanks could really use.

    Frankly, I’m glad to have A-Rod out of the way for a while. He looks like dead weight these days. I realize he hasn’t been healthy for a long time, but at this stage, that could be a permanent condition.

    I can’t wait to hear the excuses from Cash about why none of the mediocre players the Yanks targeted signed with the Yanks. It should be good for a few one-liners such as “beggars can’t be choosers,” “not comfortable in the marketplace,” etc …

    The Yanks have to find 79 home runs from somewhere in 2013…and counting.

    That’s what Swisher (24), Martin (21), ARod (18) and Chavez (16) contributed.

    These players may still be able to hit homeruns too…. not like the guys from last year, but it isnt 0 vs. 100. Also, Tex will hpefully be healthier this year and hit more than 25 or whatever he had. I’d expect Gardner to get one more in front of Cano and Tex too. Granderson should be able to hit over .220 (if he isnt traded)….

  101. Bucky December 5th, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    Yanks set a franchise record for homeruns last year. It is unrealistic to expect we’d hit that many every year. I’d rather see improvements in our ability to score guys from 3rd with less than two out, or move a guy from 2nd with no outs…

    Unfortunately, I fear a Yankee overreaction and a trade for a marginal player or throwing crazy money at someone which will hamper the team for years to come.

    No reason to give Keppinger a 3 year deal. He’s not worthy of that deal.

    Nunez could always start at 3rd and see what happens. From what we all know, guys like

    Two ways this could go:
    1) Yankees do nothing
    2) Yankees sign Hammy and Greinke (and some spare INF bench parts)

    Scenario 1 is most likely, but scenario 2 is not out of the question.

    CC
    Greinke
    Kuroda
    Pettite
    Hughes/Nova/Pineda

    Jeter – SS
    Granderson – CF
    Hammy – RF/DH
    Cano – 2B
    ARod – 3B/DH
    Teixeira – 1B
    Ichiro – LF
    Romine – C

    Bench – Gardner OF, Nunez/Reynolds INF, Cervelli C, AJ C/DH

    They would go from barely relevant in the East, to the perennial favorites once again.

    One might suggest there is too much risk with those two guys, but there isn’t another team in the MLB with more risk tolerance.

    Also 2d source says #Yankees liked Keppinger and, obviously, Chavez, but never made an offer of any type to either

    —————-

    We…. must be up to something else, right? I mean, that has to be the only explanation. That they couldnt make an offer because they were busy doing something else (trade).

    So this week we are targeting people but not offering them anything, Kepp and Chavez? Havent even talked to Ichiro? Like Pierzynski but wont offer him anything? The most significant thing Cashman did this week was announce A-Rod out until July.

    And that was all Sherman!!

    Reynolds vs the Yankees last year:

    What will he hit when not facing Ivan Nova or Freddy Garcia? Reynolds would not be awful if only because they could move him to DH once A-rod comes back, but he really, really cannot play 3B. Worse than Nunez there, potentially.

  182. NYY_Girl_Penny December 5th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Chavez didn’t wanna come back and play with this team of boring bottom of the league players.. (sans jeter, and cano when nobody is on base).

    Jeter .300
    Granderson .230
    Gardner .280?
    Tex .250
    Cano .300 empty bases
    RF ??
    3B – Reynolds ????? Youk??? Yeah great
    C – ??
    DH – .230 Raul??

    its quite clear that the yankees aren’t going to do anything that will change the lineup for the better this year. I can’t wait to see their plan blow up in their face when nobody shows up for games. Even if Arod was healthy, so what he isn’t Arod feared hitter anymore.

    Yankees just trying to get better draft position for next year, hoping to come in last place.

    Betcha Ichiro signs somewhere else.

  188. Captain Clutch December 5th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    If the Yanks trade Granderson and sign Hamilton then I am ok with signing Reynolds for cheap. But we know that will never happen. Otherwise they can’t continue to add these nothing hitters that no one wants to an already bad and old lineup.

  189. Yankee Trader December 5th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    Reynolds loses like 200 points off his batting average when he gets to 2 strikes. If someone could teach him to shorten up with 2 strikes he may be a better hitter. He is one of the guys who would most benefit from it, given the sharp disparity between his actions with 2 strikes and without.

    Outside of 3-2, he is worthless with 2 strikes.

    The fact that the Yankees didn’t offer Chavez anything after finding out that Alex was down for the count tells me one of two things:
    1) Cash is working on some mega trade that will shock us all
    2)The family plans to sell the team and doesn’t care what they throw on the field next season

    I’m guessing it’s #1. If the Yankees field a crappy team, that works against a sale as tickets sales will go down and the overall value of the team gets lowered.

    The Angels reinforced their bullpen with another free agent today, reaching an agreement with lefty Sean Burnett on a two-year deal with a club option, according to MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez. Burnett is represented by Jim Munsey.
    Burnett, 30, had been drawing strong interest as one of the best free agent lefty relievers available this offseason. He posted a 2.38 ERA, 9.1 K/9, 1.9 BB/9, 0.64 HR/9, and 57.4% groundball rate in 56 2/3 innings for the Nationals in 2012.

    Still – no offer to Chavez? No offer to Keppinger?

  235. comnsnse December 5th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    Despite Hughes winning 16 in two seasons he is still somewhat suspect as a one pitch guy. He has yet to develop a consistent second pitch and therefore every start his #1 which is not overpowering must hit corners or tempt hitters above the shoulders.

    The Yankees have three pitchers with very similar stuff and while Hughes is seen as the most experienced,if hey are going to move anyone in a deal,he would be my choice

    Nova has the stuff and the highest ceiling,while Phelps must be spot on with his control but could serve as the #5. Warren who has similar stuff to Phelps could audition again for another slot during the spring.

    Mark Reynolds career: .145 .236 .276 .512

    Its hard for anyone to hit with 2 strikes. Mark Reynolds gets almost all of his on base & power from hitting with less than 2 strikes. Its why I’d suggest he cut it down with 2 strikes, because he isn’t hitting HRs or anything with 2 strikes.

    Gardner with 2 strikes is fouling pitches off and working walks even with 2 strikes.

    Plus, there very well could be much better players available around the 2013 trade

    Why rush right now?

    Your 2012 Yankees:

    Brett Gardner CF
    Derek Jeter SS/DH
    Robinson Cano 2B
    Mark Teixeira 1B
    Curtis Granderson LF
    Gary Sanchez C
    Slade Heathcott RF
    Eduardo Nunez DH/SS
    David Adams 3B

    Bench: Cervelli, Mustelier, Mesa…

    That would at least be interesting.

    On the one hand I’d be happy if the Yanks got Headley (pending the cost, but on the other I’d miss hearing Jon Miller pronounce Headley’s name when the Pads play the Giants. He does it like he’s announcing the arrival of an aristocratic land baron at the Spring Cotillion.

  256. jacksquat December 5th, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    With all the money saved they could sign Greinke.

    Reynolds for anywhere near $7.5 million is a complete waste. This is just like it was in the non-championship years between 2000 and 2009. Guy has a little success against the Yankees (e.g. Jaret Wright) or was successful 10 years ago (e.g. Kenny Lofton), the Yanks go out and sign him. Offer him $2 million. If he declines, move on to the next crappy option.

    Oh my good luck – Doreen and Nick posting – just when i decide to check in after a while – thought reading some of these comments, it’s going to be a while, again…..

    Doreen – if you’re still around – I hope you and your family are well. Best wishes for the holidays, happy baking! I agree, these are secondary players – keppinger and chavez – we’re talking about, after all. i wouldn’t be surprised, nor disappointed, to see david adams playing some 3rd base for yanks. the kid’s been in the system for a while, and seems to be at a point where one has to find out if he can play in the majors or not. in many other teams, he’d be a no brainer.

    Nick – fyi – i’m enjoying a little bit – well, two fingers worth (it’s been a rough day – actually much worse for other people, if you know what i mean) of caol ila, before dinner. i hope you are well, and have a good evening yourself.

    Mad Prince,

    Not sure who he is. He claims to work or have an association with the team & posts rumors here & on Twitter. He called the Tex signing when everyone here thought Swisher was our starting 1b.

    I don’t dismiss him like some do. Rumors are fun for some of us & don’t cause steam to come from our ears when someone posts them.

    We had a poster here way back when named Bobcat who also broke some news in here before anyone anywhere had it. Not sure if Lost is Bobcat.

    Joe, I think I know what you mean and I’m sorry about the rough day for you and them. I had some Dewars last week at my cousin’s house in Arlington VA and I was thinking about how much I wished it was a nice malt instead. Someday I will tell my little story about Caol Ila, but it’s not such a great story and not suitable for the blog.

    Mad Prince,

    Don’t get me started on LOST the show. That show quite honestly went from my favorite show of all time to something I can’t even rewatch now due to the way they ended it. They literally destroyed seasons of great storytelling by screwing up that final season. I haven’t put the Blu Ray set in the player since my wife bought them for me because I hated that final season so passionately.

    The point Kay just made about the Yanks not being able to give out multi-year deals this off-season because they effect next year’s $189M budget is completely valid. If the Yankees can reset their luxury tax by being below $189M for just one year in 2014 it’s probably worth it…

    BUT, why are the Yankees being shy about giving 1 year deals for 2013 that have no effect on 2014??? They should have given Chavez $3.5M for this year if that’s what it would take for him. They should give AJ Piezynzki a nice 1 year deal. They should be able to give Ichiro a nice 1 year deal instead of going cheap with Nate Sh.tholes… Why are they seemingly being cheap on 1 year deals that have nothing to do with $189M in 2014????

    That makes NO SENSE.

    first off, you know not to listen to what cashman says about what the yankees are going to do. he has no intention of telling you what they are really thinking.

    secondly, i do believe that the yankees dont WANT to put nunez at 3b and the only way it’s going to happen is if a bunch of other things don’t work out, one way or another. and a bunch of other things did not work out today, so we’re somewhat closer to the yankees reconsidering that decision.

    the next set of options probably include a trade including either a third baseman coming in or nunez going out, both of which bring up esciting possibilities.

    so to me, since i didnt like the keppinger/chavez/youkilis plan and 2/3 of that is dead now and the other is on life support, so that’s a good thing to me.

    make a big trade, cashman.

    if not, nunez goes to third and its all good.

    Resetting the luxury tax is not that big of a deal at all. Going from a 50% tax to 17.5% on $210M payroll is about a $7M savings.

  323. G. Love December 5th, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    SoS,

    First off, good to see you as always.

    As for most disappointing, I have to go with Lost. That final season made the previous seasons pointless. It was such a total let down. At least the Sopranos you can rewatch (although I don’t). I don’t love the Sopranos like some claim to do, but I respect how they went out. Lost killed all the momentum of the show the way they went out.

    Right now I’m just hoping that Breaking Bad gets it right. That’s my favorite show and if they end it well, and I believe they will, it will go down as one of the best series ever.

    Also hoping they get Game of Thrones & Walking Dead right when those series reach their finales.

    The guy who wrote the Game of Thrones books actually called out the Lost creators and told them what a horrible job they did ending the series. He’s promising that won’t happen with his books and the subsequent show.

  324. LGY December 5th, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    The amount of misinformation out there is crazy.

    People are either just scared of by the 50% number because it sounds bad or think the entire payroll is taxed at 50%.

  325. Jerkface December 5th, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Resetting the luxury tax is not that big of a deal at all. Going from a 50% tax to 17.5% on $210M payroll is about a $7M savings.

    People have trouble understanding the concept of marginal tax brackets. The Yankees are only taxed on overages, so its a relatively small amount of the payroll that is subject to it.

    Havnt seen breaking bad. Will have to look into it. I have been glued to Walking Dead though and it was a great season or mid season so far. Also like Game of Thrones and yes hope it doesnt dissapoint. Its like watching 3 hours of a Yankee loss. All I can think of is damn I could have used this time to take a nap. Imagine how much beauty sleep(not sure if thats what you call it if your a man) hours I could have had if those two shows bomb in the end.

    LGY,

    I heard Feisand on MLB radio the other day, and it sure sounded like he thought the tax was on the entire payroll. They risk so much in goodwill for ultimately little savings.

  331. G. Love December 5th, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    SoS,

    Watching Walking Dead & Homeland back to back on Sunday night’s I feel like I need a mental health day on Monday’s. It’s intense.

    Definitely check out Breaking Bad. It’s brilliant, but I know some people hate the drug part of it so much they can’t handle it. It’s streamable on Netflix if you have that.

  332. SoS December 5th, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    Will do G.
    Catch you later.

  333. blake December 5th, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    I don’t think it’s as much about the tax as it is just havin an excuse to lower the payroll.

  334. blake December 5th, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    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.
