Third base market grows clearer

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 09, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

According to MLB.com, the Indians have agreed to a one-year contract with corner infielder Mark Reynolds. The deal could set the stage for Kevin Youkilis to accept the Yankees one-year offer.

Youkilis is believed to be deciding between offers from the Yankees and Indians (though others could be in the mix), and the Reynolds deal could knock Cleveland out of the running. The Indians have Lonnie Chisenhall to play third.

Reynolds could have been a match for the Yankees, but his third-base defense is pretty bad. Probably would have fit better as a designated hitter and backup at the infield corners.

    Is YOOOOOOOK on the way?

  2. Ed Whitson December 9th, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Do not want Youkilis on our team under any circumstances. He is a certified Grade “A” douchebag.

  3. blake December 9th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Say no to Youk

  4. UnKnown December 9th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    This place is about to burn down to the ground with a Youk signing. Should be entertaining.

    Go Dodgers!

  6. blake December 9th, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    I’m mentally preparing myself for having to look at youk every game next year…..or at least until he gets hurt…..

    silver lining is the way this club is shaping up so far I’ll be asleep by the 4th inning most nights anyway

  7. blake December 9th, 2012 at 9:07 pm

    Drinking copious quantities of alcohol during games might make it easier to look at Youk in pinstripes

  8. mick December 9th, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    Youk presser soon!

    Exactly.

    If LAD offer a decent 2 yr. deal that might get him since he lives out there.

    NOOO!!!!!

  11. LordD99 December 9th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Glad Reynolds is off the market. It eliminates any chance he’d be on the team, even if the Yankees lose Youkilis. Reynolds is probably the worst defensive player in the game, giving back virrually all his value with the bat. He’s like a 0.5 WAR player. Horrible. Might as well go with Nunez at that point.

    I consider myself to be a 6 beer minimum so I think Youk would take a case + a handle of vodka before he becomes pretty.

    re: Saunders

    He’d been looking like he’d never make it in the majors and then had a bit of a break-thru last off season. Apparently, he developed a unique hitting program with a private batting instructor and, for the most part was able to carry that into the season to take a big step forward. He’s continuing with it this off season…

    http://tinyurl.com/ajjv8kz

    So, I guess we’ll see – hopefully, he’ll continue to progress.

    The Yankees remind me of VH1′s Divas Live which in the past featured Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Gloria Estefan, Tina Turner, Cher, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, and Patti LaBelle..

    This years Divas Live will feature: Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Jordin Sparks, and Kelly Rowland… that’s right… they couldn’t even get the most famous member of Destiny’s Child there.

    We’re in the market for Kelly Rowland right now, is what I’m saying.

    Gross.

    @AndrewMarchand: If you sign Hamilton and trade Granderson, you essentially trading them for each other plus whatever players you receive in Grandy pkge

  18. blake December 9th, 2012 at 9:30 pm

    @AndrewMarchand: To me, Hamilton plus, let’s say a package of young players, for Granderson makes a lot of sense for Yanks

    As a Yankees and Marlins (for my NL team), I’m really glad either didn’t sign Reynolds.

  21. blake December 9th, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    @AndrewMarchand: .@jackstrawelf I do think that the Yanks need to sell tix. I think right now, they will have a very unexcited fan base.

    @AndrewMarchand: So the money you potentially will save being under $189M, you could lose with lack of tix sales, etc.

    With local broadcast money and attendance for the league remaining strong, according to sources after two years of seeing revenues relatively flat at $7 billion, Major League Baseball will see revenues of $7.5 billion for 2012. To place this in perspective, when accounting for inflation, baseball’s revenues have increased 257 percent since 1995 when they were $1.4 billion.

    And while the number is impressive, it’s just the beginning of what will likely be one of—if not the—largest spike in revenue growth in league history. That’s because starting in 2014 the new national broadcast deals with FOX, ESPN, and TBS kick in which will add an additional $788.3 million a year. That means if MLB’s revenues remained static, league revenues for 2014 would exceed $8.4 billion. That, of course, isn’t going to happen. Revenues will get a further hefty bounce when the Dodgers finalize their broadcast deal which is reportedly worth $6-$7 billion. Depending on when that kicks in, it’s very possible that MLB could flirt with, or surpass, the $9 billion gross revenue plateau in a couple of years.

    “Yankees need to realize these prices, and inflating payrolls aint going away”

    Correct….they are quickly becoming just another team (which is what MLB wanted) as their payroll goes down and other teams payroll goes up…..the gap is closing or has already closed for the dodgers…..

  29. DocTodd December 9th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Rumor has it Youk is deciding on whether to accept the Yanks offer, or turn it down to begin filming Shrek 4 immediately….

  30. Ys Guy December 9th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    there are going to be a bunch of trades at some point, i think the first one has to go down to break the ice then a bunch of others will follow. i’d guess the yankees think they can land a catcher.

  31. cs in la December 9th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    If you thought Youk was ugly before, wait until he shaves his beard. Almost unwatchable.

  32. chicken little December 9th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Joe Girardi was introduced as manager of the Yanks shorlty after A-Rod opted out. He was asked repeatedly what would be done to replace A-Rod (as obviously at the time no one knew A-Rod would return). His repeated response was “We are the Yankees.” He said it as if it were a mantra. I think its about time he reminded Hal which franchise he has the keys to. This isn’t Milwaukee, isn’t Tampa Bay, hell, this isn’t Los Angeles. This is New York. I think pretty much every Yankee fan comprehends deep down that a World Series title every year isn’t realistic. But not trying? Not spending money we know he has? Its time for Hal to remember “We are the Yankees.”

  37. rm December 9th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    I think Youk would be an excellent 1 year fit to play third when Alex can’t and back up at 1st base to replace Swish in that role. Swish always got a lot of important hits against us. Hopefully he will start getting thos big hit for us instead.

    But I have to wonder if Joba will still find a way to keep hitting him with pitches. Maybe in batting practice.

  41. Ys Guy December 9th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    so your point is that cheap hal is going to sign the most expensive 3b man on the board this offseason? (to cover a position he’s already paying $25M to cover?)

  43. martin-from-providence December 9th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    I’m not crazy about Youk at 3B. I thought the Red Sox destroyed a good thing when they had Youk at first and Beltre at third – all because Theo had the hots for Gonzales. The same as he had for Drew, Lugo, etc. …

    Anyway, if I were Youk, I’d take the Yankees offer (no matter what it was), since it would mean that Joba would not be “accidentally” throwing near my head any more.

    You seem to be making some point, but not addressing the fundamental issue many raise.

  52. NYY fan in NH December 9th, 2012 at 10:21 pm

    Since I live in Red Sox territory. I’ve seen Youkilis since his very first call up years ago, this guy’s a gamer with the ability to be clutch. He’s got some motivation when he plays against his old team if he signs here. I’ll take him for 1 year. I still think you could use Scott Hairston as well. If only Hamilton was real shot.

    I don’t care Youkilis used to be a Sox pain in the rear or is ugly. But, can he play anymore? Will his signing eliminate other signings more helpful? Those are my concerns.

  76. chicken little December 9th, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Before we all jump off a cliff, lets just remember — Wil Myers is a prospect. A great one, but a prospect nonetheless. Lets also remember — the key to the Rays’ kingdom is pitching. Thanks to the Fish, the Rays’ stadium chances are basically kaput. That means — Big Game James will have company leaving Tampa Bay. Basically — this is Tampa Bay’s big shot. This year and maybe next year. Then, barring a miracle, bye bye David Price. And no matter how stupid Hal seems to be right now, do we really think he will allow his moneymaker Yankee Stadium to become a wasteland …

  82. Jerkface December 9th, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    I should say the most valuable position player prospect with no MLB time, Profar would of course be the #1. Hopefully Myers busts hard because if the Rays get their hooks in him on some team friendly long term deal its gonna suck.

    Price is on the team until 2016, maybe longer as he has been opining for long term deal on twitter.

  83. Tar December 9th, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    That is still a really good Rays rotation. They needed another bat to pair with Longo. Kind of sucks, looks like well be seeing him for a long time. Shields never scared me, I always thought the Yankees had a good chance to beat him.

    I agree, Tar, James Shields is crazy overrated. He never even earned his ‘big game’ name. He has like a 5 career ERA vs the Yankees. The rays will have good pitching without him. Hellickson is the next james shields anyways.

    Have no clue who those other players are. But in doesn’t sound good for us.

    Davis will probably start for the Royals, so I guess the thinking is 2 quality starters for the rotation. But it seems like a lot to give up for 2 yrs of Shields.

    Gutsy deal by Royals that will help them next two years to contend and haunt them six years from now

    My quick take: This is the worst trade in MLB history unless Wade Davis becomes a good starter, in which case it’s only the second worst.

    I look at it like this…..Yankee Stadium, runners on 2nd and 3rd, 2 outs, down by 1 bottom of the 8th, who would you rather have up after Jeter and maybe Cano if he’s not slumping….Granderson, ARod, Teixeira, or Youkilis….
    I go with Youkilis, he is clutch…..and would be a good signing for an offense in need of some real professional hitters…

    So both Rays fans are feeling pretty good tonight? :neutral:

    The worst hockey trade -’92, basically the Flames get Gary Leeman for Doug Gilour. Gilmour goes on to be a major#1 player with Toronto, while Leeman disappers. Gilmour had previously been traded from St. Louis for Brett Hull, and won a cup with Calgary vs Montreal.

    Keith, I appreciate the effort… I will file that away if/when Youk actually comes on board, but I won’t want to waste any emotion on come to terms with Yankee Youk before I have to.

    Mariners Minors ?@MiLBMariners
    Shouldn’t be surprised by the Rays Royals trade since Dayton Moore did acquire Yuni Betancourt not once but twice. Bavasi-esque deal.

  100. Tar December 9th, 2012 at 11:32 pm

    Not only did the Rays get younger and better and cheaper, they did it by getting rid of 2 pitchers that they really had no need for. One of them that the Yankees like to beat up on.

    Sucky trade for a Yankee fan.

    Sorry, ‘ disappears “

    Read it and weep :arrow:

    $40M for the Yankees 3B ($28M A-Rod + $12M Youkilis) – ridiculous.

    The Yanks should sign Jack Hannahan for a year.

    ‘Dude plays good defense, isn’t old, and made only $1.14M in 2012.

    He’ll automatically cost $12M minus X less than Youkilis who isn’t as good a 3B as Hannahan is defensively.

    Maybe Hannahan gives us a year like Scott Brosius gave us (‘not expecting a 1998 or 2001 Brosius, but a 1999 or 2000 Brosius would be nice.)
