Best of what’s left

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 08, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The weekend after the Winter Meetings seems like a good time to take a look at what’s left on the free agent market. Obviously not all of these players fit the Yankees needs, but it does give some idea of the strength of the market as we wrap up the first week of December.

Lineup
CF Michael Bourn
3B Kevin Youkilis
LF Josh Hamilton
RF Nick Swisher
1B Adam LaRoche
DH Cody Ross
C A.J. Pierzynski
2B Kelly Johnson
SS Stephen Drew

Most of these choices are pretty clear. I’ll give Youkilis the nod over Mark Reynolds as the top third baseman on the market, and I’ll give Ross the DH spot ahead of an injury risk like Lance Berkman. Second base and shortstop — not surprisingly — are clearly the weakest spots on the market right now. And take a look at the bottom half of this order. There are a lot of left-handed bats out there.

Bench
OF Ichiro Suzuki
2B/SS Hiroyuki Nakajima
1B/3B Mark Reynolds
C Rod Barajas

The outfield market matters a great deal to the Yankees. The stars are obviously listed above in my starting lineup, but there’s still significant depth available, especially with platoon bats. Guys like Ryan Sweeney, Scott Hairston, Delmon Young, Raul Ibanez, Matt Diaz, Andres Torres and even (if he’s healthy) Grady Sizemore could be helpful in specific roles. As for a utility option, I have no idea whether Nakajima — the guy the Yankees actually had the rights to last winter — can hit in the big leagues or play somewhere other than shortstop, but given the alternatives, I’d rather give him a shot.

Rotation
RHP Zack Greinke
RHP Anibal Sanchez
RHP Edwin Jackson
RHP Kyle Lohse
RHP Shaun Marcum

After Greinke, the starting pitching market has always been full of good-but-not-great options; guys who could be anywhere from a No. 2 to a No. 4, and who come with some obvious questions about either durability or high-end potential. The Yankees grabbed two of those guys when they re-signed Hiroki Kuroda and Andy Pettitte. For the most part, the rest of the top starters are still available. My list doesn’t include Ryan Dempster, Joe Saunders or Francisco Liriano. There are still plenty of interesting rotation options out there.

Bullpen
RHP Rafael Soriano
RHP Brian Wilson
RHP Mike Adams
RHP Jose Valverde
RHP Brett Myers
RHP Matt Capps
RHP Carlos Villanueva

I usually try to make these resemble actual rosters, but for this bullpen, my choices are more about making a point than creating a pitching staff. There’s significant risk in guys like Brian Wilson, Matt Capps and (yikes) Jose Valverde, but the market does offer plenty of options that have late-inning or closing experience. Clearly Soriano is the cream of the crop, but he’s also going to be wildly more expensive than the others. It’s going to be interesting to see what kind of opportunities these guys get (and what kind of role Villanueva settles into).

    Best of what’s left? All the good players are left pretty much…..you just have to pay for them

  2. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 9:08 am

    Thanks Chad. Now, let’s guess what non-Yankee team these guys will play for. Rule out the starters. Too long term for our new system.

    CNN/SI described the Yankees as the losing team at the meetings. Shocker.

  3. blake December 8th, 2012 at 9:09 am

    @Espngreeny: Reading of Cano’s pending free agency in NYDN. So this year will he actually run to 1st base? Dive for a ball? For 250 mil? Please?

    Blake, Austin, who knows, you guys might surprise anyways despite the lack of funds at this point. As for me, I’m glad there is no hockey in the meantime; imagine getting paid so much for having no academic merit and pushing a cold piece of rubber around!?

  6. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 9:16 am

    AAO,

    I am old school. I like a player at every position or else it looks like Hanley chasing after the ball and getting it when it stops rolling.

  7. yankfan1 December 8th, 2012 at 9:16 am

    Some reasonable trades:

    1)Curtis Granderson for Dayan Viciedo and a prospect (downgrade, but cheaper, and does similar things, ChiSox will to spend and want a LH bat)
    2)Hughes, Campos, and Adams/Nunez for Moustakas (probably an overpay, but need young talented bats in this lineup, especially in 3B)
    3) With money saved not having to sign Youk and the Grandy trade can give some of that money to AJ in a 1 year deal. Or what Id rather see is sign Delmon Young, to a 1 year deal if the market completely falls on him. Really dont understand why we havent heard his name anywhere this offseason. Id consider giving him a 2 year deal honestly. Not a HR hitter, more line drive one, clutch hitter ( around .300 RISP in his career), and we saw what he can do in the postseason. Add to the fact he went .308/.333/.500 against lefties last year. sign Ichiro to play against RHs once in a while, if hes willing to take such a reduced role.
    *3 b) If you can get Hamilton on 4 years you do it, and let Cano walk the next year. No reason to trade him, thats a championship caliber team with those 2 in the lineup. Go for broke.

    C Romine/ Cervelli
    1B Tex
    2B Cano
    3B Moustakas
    SS Jeter
    LF Viciedo
    CF Gardner
    RF Young (or Hamilton)
    DH Arod (Young until he comes back, with dickerson/ichiro and a RH platoon bat splitting time until he comes back)

    I know young isnt the greatest fielder, but neither was Swish, Gardner will make up for some of his inabilities.
    And Hamilton is a strech, highly doubt it happens.

    Against, opposing fans must indeed be basking in your team’s struggles. Let’s face it everybody is looking for that feel good moment. I’m glad enough for the recent history of the Giants, the Cards,…not so much :)

    Ancient Chinese saying :

    Sometimes by doing nothing you do something.

    (Not really. It was in a fortune cookie is all. I can’t tell a lie.)

    :(
    ////

    I effectively sent the same message in an email to Cashman not long ago (though it seems like centuries). The Chinese have a point, but Cashman didn’t get it. Instead of doing “nothing” to continue to build on a something, He did a something and was left with a nothing.

    :(.

    If Blake ends up spelling “Youkalis” correctly any time soon, then I fear all is lost.

    While driving last night, ESPN Radio quoted Cashman as having said he knows he can’t win with the current lineup…. no kidding, even Swisher isn’t in it… but it foretells something is brewing. What I say to the Yankees is also proverbial:

    First, do no harm.

  16. blake December 8th, 2012 at 9:24 am

    I wouldn’t call the Yankees losers yet for not having signed a bunch of bench players…..it depends on why they didn’t sign them…

    .if really are planning on stop gapping like half the team and were asleep and missed out then yea they are losers…… But if they are actually planning something to improve the club and didnt want to take up roster spots with lesser players who would be over paid then that’s another thing……we have to see which of these it is

  22. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 9:26 am

    If it were me I would sign Drew for 2-3 years as NY does not have a qualified internal option as they have already flushed Nunez from consideration.

    I’d go Hamilton 4/100, with an opt out after year 1.

    I’d sign AJP for 2 years and 18 mil. With 12 mil in year 1.

    I’d trade Granderson and Hughes(if he is not interested in extending) to get the best near ML ready SS available.

    I’d bring Adams, Nunez, Mustalier and C. Joseph to spring training and let them know it is an open competition for starting 3B and back-up 2B job. Compete and have fun.

    I’d withdraw my offer from Youkalis.

    what would you suggest gets a deal done. I think its pretty fair, he hasnt been that impressive so far in his career. Hes not going to be a superstar. But I guess it all depends on Hughes sign-ability. Im hesitant to trade Nova, really like the kid, showed me a lot for 1 year and a half, not gonna let half a season, though abysmal, switch my view on him.

  51. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 9:43 am

    Since the winter of 2008, everytime Cashman gets in front of a microphone he has done nothing but to quell excitement and lower expectations among Yankee fans.

    He is a master at throwing a wet blanket around any and all hope and excitement fans may still hold out on. Take a look at this guy’s expression. Does it inspire confidence that this is a guy leading the Yankees back to the promised land?

    Why is this guy still the GM? Aside from signing scrap heap players what really has he done to improve the team and sustain it for LT success, once ownership gave him some budget constraints? Has he shown any sliver of creativity to find value?

  52. jmills December 8th, 2012 at 9:46 am

    Alfred, none of them are worth it. I saw an interview with Marcel Dionne ( in Gretzky’s rookie year, he tied slow Wayne with 137 points and won the title based upon more goals ); Dionne basically stated that the present ice pusher was an over paid brat out of touch with the supportive fan – couldn’t concur more!

    If they sent him to the GM meetings with orders to not spend a dime, I don’t blame him.

    You have the Yankees telling him to not spend any money, and people here saying basically to not trade prospects unless you can fleece the other team (not happening), what exactly does he have left to do?

  54. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Odds;

    Hal should say why don’t you give them a chance? Why didn’t we have one ML AB from a position player rookie in 2012 until after the rosters expanded? You don’t trust them do you? If not, why not? Is it a coaching, development, issue? If it is, why are they still coaching in the minor leagues? Why don’t you take actions instead of spending my millions on guys like Andru Jones, Casey McGhee and Steve Pearce?

  55. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 9:50 am

    jacksquat; why didn’t Cashman strongly advocate signing one of the cuban OF last year or trading Swisher last year if he knew budget would be tight the next couple of years? Why wasn’t he more proactive? Is it a sudden surprise he can’t spend any money, oh poor Cashman, maybe if he had produced some position players and had the b**** to give them a chance he wouldn’t be crying about lack of spending money at the winter meetings.

  56. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 9:56 am

    jacksquat; I have to go but let me be clear. I think Hal is a suit who could care less about the Yankees and their fans. He is fixated on profit. He doesn’t recognize he is selling entertainment and people will not spend $$$ to watch a boring, uninteresting product. All that said I am concerned that Cashman is being made out to be some kind of martyr that he can do no wrong because his daddy won’t give him any money for Christmas.

    Give me a break, Cashman is as much to blame for the Yankees situation as is Hal.

    I guess Hal can say those things but Hal strikes me as a guy not that in tune with the minors and how players develop.

    Beggars can’t be choosers and Having no authority were put out for public consumption for a reason. I don’t for a minute believe it was just to deflect blame from Cashman.

    I keep coming back to there is something going on that we are not aware of. Or possibly I just over estimate the whole Yankee front office.

  64. MTU December 8th, 2012 at 10:03 am

    This about sums things up :

    “They that have power to hurt and will do none,
    That do not do the thing they most do show,
    Who, moving others, are themselves as stone,
    Unmoved, cold, and to temptation slow,
    They rightly do inherit heaven’s graces
    And husband nature’s riches from expense;
    They are the lords and owners of their faces,
    Others but stewards of their excellence.
    The summer’s flower is to the summer sweet,
    Though to itself it only live and die,
    But if that flower with base infection meet,
    The basest weed outbraves his dignity:
    For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;
    Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.”

    I’ll catch you after the mid-day Sun has transited the sky.

  65. luis December 8th, 2012 at 10:03 am

    Good morning guys,

    Jacksquat,

    I am a prospect hugger, that is no secret, but I wouldn’t be so adverse to trades right now if not for the following reasons:

    1) I don’t trust their talent evaluation capabilities when it comes down to players on the farm. I am afraid they are going to trade the keepers instead of the true trade chips. We’ve got plenty of examples in the recent past to think this time won’t happen again.

    2) Since we are in a weak position ( we just lost Arod, Swisher, Jeter’s injury ) we are bound to overpay in talent, plus we are not one player away, but several to have a true championship team.

    3) Last but not least, we need to rebuild the core.

    I am not saying don’t make trades, what I would do is assume the reality that this team may compete, but the are larger things at risk here ( long term success ). Meaning, we have a lot of aging players, no payroll flexibility or willingness to spend more and no inmediate help from within. We are going in to a downward period, they just should recognize this and act accordingly to make it as short as it can be.

  66. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:04 am

    Cashman has turned into Eeyore. It is depressing whenever he opens his mouth.

    And yes,the Yankees were losers. All of baseball is laughing at them. They went to the winter meetings without authority to spend any money. That, my friends, is a joke.

  67. jacksquat December 8th, 2012 at 10:09 am

    Really, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cashman quit with his apparent working conditions. He might be just sticking around to collect the money from him contract. From reports it sounds like he locked himself in his hotel room the last day of the Winter meetings and wouldn’t talk to any reporters.

    “Don’t spend any money”

    “You want me to go the Winter Meetings but not have any money?”

    “Yes”

    “Then why bother going at all?”

    “We are the Yankees. We need to keep up appearances.”

    (Levine to Hal) “Hey, the press is killing us and season ticket sales are way down.”

    (Hal) “Put out a rumor we are interested in Hamilton, stat. Then sign Youkilis or something.”

    “What about the other positions?”

    “What other positions?”

  68. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 10:09 am

    How do you know he didn’t? You don’t think it’s possible he wanted to do that and it wasn’t approved by Hal? “Too risky, offer him peanuts”. Same with Yu probably, their bid was pathetic. “I still have to pay the money even if only half counts against the CBT limit”. “Hmmm, ticket sales are down, we need to make a splash, sign Soriano for whatever it takes”…

    Jacksquat; how do you know he did? It is simple none of us do know who he did or didn’t advocate behind closed doors to ownership. However I look at the track record, I look at his tenure and any examples of operating in a pro-active fashion in the last 4 years. I just do not see enough of it to give me any confidence that Cashman can run this franchise successfully. I think he just does not have the necessary competencies.

  69. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:11 am

    Jack,

    Good one. Probably close to accurate.

  70. raymagnetic December 8th, 2012 at 10:11 am

    “What about a guy like Kepp I wouldn’t have given him those yrs but he could have helped the team.”

    So you think the years weren’t good but Cashman should’ve signed him anyway :-?

    Seems to me that Cashman just can’t win.

    And trust me I think Cashman got played big time by Seattle a couple of times and I’m not a Cashman cheerleader by any means. But c’mon man, Keppinger?

    I don’t consider Keppinger to be anyone of importance. Adams or Mustelier can fill Keppinger’s role for a fraction of the cost.

  71. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 10:11 am

    Yeah, real smart move by Cashman railing against signing Soriano a couple years back. Let me ask you, where would the Yankees have finished if they did not have Soriano last year? You can call Levine a jerk in so many words but he got that one right.

    Another great example of pro-active thinking on Cashman’s part.

  74. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I remember when Cashman wanted to add Cameron at the TD a few years ago and Hal refused. Hal controls all expenditures. I don’t know how much is Cashman’s fault. I would guess he has little power.

    He will leave when his contract is up.

  76. jacksquat December 8th, 2012 at 10:15 am

    1) I don’t trust their talent evaluation capabilities when it comes down to players on the farm. I am afraid they are going to trade the keepers instead of the true trade chips. We’ve got plenty of examples in the recent past to think this time won’t happen again.

    Hey Luis. :)

    The problem is, you aren’t going to get much if anything trading B prospects. On top of that, our blue chippers are A ballers, a few just about to start AA. You could basically only trade them for other prospects, or have to “overpay” with them to get a major leaguer because they are somewhat unproven.

    Speaking of trading for other prospects, what do you think of your countryman Wilmer Flores? He is blocked by David Wright now, I think we should trade one of our outfielders for him.

  78. PhiltheThrill December 8th, 2012 at 10:17 am

    Cashman’s a bright guy and a generally good GM. He’s been in a tough situation in terms of ownership. First with George, who would make deals behind his back and refused to spend on the draft, and now with Hal, who makes deals behind his back, refused to spend on the draft and IFA before the rules changed, and who isn’t driven to win. What Cash doesn’t get enough credit for is rebuilding the farm and the scouting staff. Trading Montero was a pretty massive mistake, based on the idea that they could trade for a young ace, instead of having to buy one.

  79. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:19 am

    Ray,

    The word is neither Adams nor Mustelier are adequate defensively at third. Adams has only had a few dozen games there. Keppinger is far better than neither is likely to be. End of the world? No, but if they don’t add some good players, I agree with Cashman, they can’t win.

  80. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 10:19 am

    I think it is time for Cashman to move on. He does not add any value.

    I think it is time for Hal to sell the team or make a committment to invest in the team, long term.

  81. yankeefeminista December 8th, 2012 at 10:19 am

    Speaking of poetics, do no harm to the farm has a nice ring to it. Or I should say, do no further,/i> harm…

    Another great example of pro-active thinking on Cashman’s part.

    Soriano was a terrible sign. You have to evaluate at the time of the trade. We had Mo, and we signed a mega-expensive closer to be a middle reliever, for 3 years, and he had full opt out control. Mo had shown practically zero signs of decline. It was dumb. The Yankees only got “lucky” that Mo got hurt and Soriano actually earned his money for one year, then lucky again when he opted out.

  84. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 10:22 am

    Austinmac; Adams just started playing 3B, from what I read he was not a butcher there and has good infielder abilities as a 2B which could transfer over. I don’t think you can lump him in with Mustelier in terms of defensive ability.

    I’d give Mustelier a shot as a DH and utility guy. All indications are he can hit.

  85. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:22 am

    I will believe the farm is rebuilt when it produces top quality MLB players. Until then it is hyperbole. Cano and Granderson, at 29, are their youngest home grown position players.

    Pitching? Hughes and Robertson?

  87. yankee21 December 8th, 2012 at 10:24 am

    jacksquat; I was one of the few who didn’t think signing Soriano was a dumb sign. When Soriano was signed, Mo was 41 years old. What was the succession plan Cashman had in mind to succeed Mo, or was he just thinking that this super-human indidvidual would close games forever and not worry about it?

  88. raymagnetic December 8th, 2012 at 10:24 am

  89. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:25 am

    Yankees21,

    That’s why I said Adams only had a few games there. The Yankees have announced to the world he isn’t ready. He better be. And why would they let that be known?

  90. yankeefeminista December 8th, 2012 at 10:25 am

    In the games I saw at AA, Adams was adequate at third; made some good plays going to his right, but he has barely played there. Yanks probably won’t give him a shot though. They’ll be overly cautious like they always are. I have no idea what Mustelier’s D is like, but don’t think it is very good.

  91. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 10:26 am

    The Yankees are relying even more heavily on Mo at 43 coming back from a broken ankle. No one wants to acknowledge that risk for fear of offending a legend.

  92. luis December 8th, 2012 at 10:29 am

    JS,

    :D. I meant that I would trade those A prospects that are redundant and not as good as other prospects. That is the hard part, separating the realyy good one from just the good ones.

    About Flores… Yes!… I have seen him in the Liga Profesional down here this season, and he is playing very well… I think that he even was selected for the AS game… He is realizing his potential.. He has pop and a good plate approach, he has a gun for an arm and soft hands… So yeah, I would trade for him.

    Mustelier’s fld% at 3B (only 26 games total) is .941, a little below average. He’s probably below average there. They seem to be playing him more in the outfield.

    A Mustelier/Dickerson platoon in RF might work.

    One of the reasons why the Yanks should look into Hamilton is because Cano is a free agent next year. It’s going to be a real test to see how Hal handles his contract. Everyone knows that the Dodgers are going to blow him away with an offer and I doubt that Hal will top it. At least if Cano leaves the Yanks will have Hamilton in the middle of the order. It obviously doesn’t replace him but it’s hard to know what to expect from the front office moving forward. The fact that they haven’t even tried to sign Cano to a long term deal yet makes absolutely no sense.

    AJ will never catch for the Yanks as long as Girardi is the manager. They got rid of Montero because Girardi refused to get him catch. Unless his price really drops I don’t think there is anyway he is a Yankee. Girardi would rather have a catcher hit .170 instead of .290 if it means having great defense.

    The Yanks would be able to match but it basically assures you’re pushing Mo, Andy and Kuroda completely off the table for 2014.

    An opportunity like this fell into George’s lap, and he would snap-it-up.

  135. RMS December 8th, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    Also will take 8 or 9 years and 200+ million most likely…..Hamilton for 4 or even 5 years is a better investment especially when you’d have them both for 2013

    =======================================================
    Don’t think Hamilton wants/should have to deal with NY media after every game. That alone might drive him to drink/drugs. NY is not a good fit for him.

    George was actually the more balanced of the 3.
    He was able to balance his checkbook and his impulsiveness for whatever the cost athletes.

  138. DONNYBROOK December 8th, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Right now, Texas is being allowed to proceed at their own pace concerning their choice of Greinke of Hamilton. George woulda chased Hamilton to get Texas “off the dime”, and to ratchet the price up. Hal aint gotta clue when it comes to a playing poker. Hal has NO idea what, “you don’t play The Hand, you play The Man” means. He is a typical “Bottom Line”, 1 dimensional thinker.

  139. tucker December 8th, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    It will be interesting to see what Cano gets. There are no real comparables out there for 2b. Guys like Utley and Ian Kinsler did not receive over-the-top contracts. What did Brandon Phillips get — six years $72.5 million.

    I know there is more money flowing in baseball, but it would be quite a leap for Cano to command more than $200 million when you see what other all-star caliber second basemen earn.

  140. mick December 8th, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Hank was the force behind the overpayment of Arod.
    He is as one dimensional as Hal, to the other extreme.
    Together they represent the bipolarity of George.

  141. jacksquat December 8th, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    Cano for Zunino

    Tyler Austin or Slade Heathcott for Wilmer Flores

    Sign Hamilton

    Gardner CF
    Jeter SS
    Hamilton RF
    Teixeira 1B
    Granderson LF
    DH (need a good solution here; Berkman?)
    Zunino C
    Flores 3B
    Nunez/Adams 2B

    When/if Arod gets back he can play 3B if Flores is not working out, or DH if the DH is not working out, or split time between both.

  142. mick December 8th, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    If we don’t bring Cano back that’s another clue they are selling the team as last place will be on the future horizon.

  143. Captain Clutch December 8th, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I think that Cashman is trying to trade for a RFer before he signs a free agent. At least that would explain why the Yanks haven’t been connected to any free agent outfielders besides Ichiro. I find it hard to believe that if they sign Youk that would be the only addition to the offense.

  144. mick December 8th, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    Some have said Swisher could fall back into our laps. So far, other teams are playing the waiting game on him and he could be the last man standing as far as RF is concerned.

  145. DaSaint007 December 8th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Mick, I think you’re right.

  146. mick December 8th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Why would Youk come here? He clearly did not jump at the chance of being a Yankee and is negotiating with Cleveland where he could be big man on campus and get special treatment from Tito .

    Clearly, being a Yankee, is a thing of the past.

  147. mick December 8th, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Hal seems to be playing the role of CBS in the good old days when they presided over decayed Yankee teams.

    Full circle would be if they sold to Cuban and he became the new George.

    Hal never wanted to get involved back in the day and now we know why.
    He stood no chance against the tag team tandem of Hank and George.
    Wonder what those Thanksgiving dinners were like?

  148. mick December 8th, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Seems like there is no interest in Ichiro among other teams.
    Could see he, Hairston and Ibanez as some combo platter of RF/DH with Barajas catching.

  149. oak2455 December 8th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Barajas is crap

  150. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Mick,

    I could easily see that combination. In my view, too old and too likely to be worse than they were last year. Hairston had a career year, Ibanez returned from Hogwarts for one last trick and Ichiro had two pretty good months in the last two years.

  151. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    I believe I read Barajas threw out 13% of base runners last year. But, on the other hand, he can’t hit either.

  152. austinmac December 8th, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    According tomRichard Justice, the Rangers may add Greinke, Upton and bring back Hamilton. Don’t worry, Reynolds is still out there. Team him with Grandy and records will fall.

  153. joeman December 8th, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Cano has never taken pride in being a yankee. He can careless if he played for boston or whoever else. He even has an ortiz looking beard.

    I really dont care to keep cano as long as we have a similar replacement, doesnt have to be 2B .. Ive never viewed cano as a clutch game changer.. and he has zero ability to put this team on his back. None.

    Not just about whats goin on now but i really think that the yankees are being destroyed from within and its only gonna het worse. Someone shoulda been groomed to take over for George stein, now we have clueless morons destroying what he built. Time for mets and yanks to switch sides.

  193. Duh Innings II December 8th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    SI are Yankees-hating losers led by the chief Yankees-hating loser Tom Verducci.

    The Yanks signed the best three free agent pitchers as a group in Kuroda, Pettitte, and Rivera and certainly got the best deal for them ($37M for 2013 only plus Mo’s incentives I hope he earns one or two of or all three.)

    How come the mighty Swisher hasn’t signed with anyone yet? People realizing he’s a 32-year old two years away from being a full-time DH?

    The Yanks should offer him two years at $13.3M per year or double their qualifying offer to him, take it or leave it. No one is giving Swisher, a 32-year old two years away from being a full-time DH three or four years at $14-16M per year or they’d have done so by now. Hunter got a deal much quicker than him and Hunter had a better 2012 than Swisher overall.

  194. FreeAgentSignee December 12th, 2012 at 2:48 am

    I agree Chad.
    The Yankees should re-sign these –

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    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.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    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.
