    haven’t they tried this playing prime time at multiple positions before? Don’t recall it going well……

  2. austinmac March 5th, 2014 at 8:56 am

    FWIW, the Post says the Mariners and the White Spx were scouting us last night. The M’s want a starter and the Sox want a catcher. Both could have OiF help.

  3. Against All Odds March 5th, 2014 at 8:58 am

    How did this prime time thing start??

    ————–

    The middle infielders the W Sox can send the Yanks way are underwhelming. Not sure about the Mariners (although I’m guessing they’re not much better)

  5. Tackelberry March 5th, 2014 at 9:26 am

    Post said Mariners are scouting Phelps. Would probably take more than Phelps though to get Franklin

  6. CountryClub March 5th, 2014 at 9:28 am

    Regarding the White Sox:

    Rickie Weeks has hit .222/.320/.384 (94 wRC+) with 31 homers and 23 steals these last two years, a far cry from his 2009-11 peak.

    Jeff Keppinger, who New York showed some interest in at the trade deadline last year………hit .253/.283/.317 (60 wRC+) last summer and is owed $9.5M through 2015. Gordon Beckham, 27, managed a .267/.322/.372 (88 wRC+) line last year, his best season since 2009. He’s owed $4.175M this year and is under team control in 2015 as well.

    “Post said Mariners are scouting Phelps. Would probably take more than Phelps though to get Franklin”

    I wouldn’t think a ton more…..at least I wouldn’t give a ton more. Phelps is fairly established now and a cheap back end starter…..Franklin profiles as an average regular…..not a star or anything and he’s probably a 2B and not a SS. Phelps for Franklin seems pretty fair to me……young cheap back end starter for young cheap infield prospect with limited ceiling.

  9. Tackelberry March 5th, 2014 at 9:33 am

    Best option is to deal with the Dbacks. No interest in Weeks or Keppinger or Beckham

  10. Mike Ri March 5th, 2014 at 9:34 am

    Yangervis Solarte = Primetime

  11. Cashmoney March 5th, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Franklin and Ackley? His prime time possess far superior pedigree both in physicality and spirituality. A virtuoso in versatility. It is sometime difficult to gleam greatness when lady fortuna has chose to sabotage such generational talents with inopportune injuries in the past, though that time has past. A new era of Prime Time everywhere are envisioned by those who shepherd the only franchise in name and practice that befits the utter primal specimen that is his prime time!

    In Prime Time we trust.

  12. Mottsx March 5th, 2014 at 9:36 am

    Any chance a team will take Ichiro too? Guy is depressing me. Kinda wish he went to the Phillies last year.

    He just felt like calling him prime time or did Nunez do something spectacular? Lol

  14. blake March 5th, 2014 at 9:41 am

    “Best option is to deal with the Dbacks. No interest in Weeks or Keppinger or Beckham”

    I think I’d almost rather trade Phelps for Franklin than to trade JR for Gregorius if those are the options. I don’t know that they can do either…..I guess you could make a case that trading Phelps hurts the 2014 team a good bit though…..I think he could be a big factor in the pen.

  15. CountryClub March 5th, 2014 at 9:44 am

    I think I’d almost rather trade Phelps for Franklin than to trade JR for Gregorius.

    —————-

    Agreed. Romine + for Gregorius I would do. Not Murphy, though.

  16. Ys Guy March 5th, 2014 at 9:49 am

    The Mariner’s don’t need a starting pitcher, they have Hector Noesi!

  17. AAA March 5th, 2014 at 9:52 am

    Phelps for Franklin seems pretty fair to me……young cheap back end starter for young cheap infield prospect with limited ceiling.

    ===========================

    Phelps isn’t young though. And his ceiling is probably more limited than Phelps is.

  18. Ys Guy March 5th, 2014 at 9:53 am

    phelps for franklin is a fair trade.

  19. CountryClub March 5th, 2014 at 9:57 am

    That King article mentioned the Brewers being interested in catchers too. What would you give up for Aramis ramirez if the Brewers eat a good portion of his money?

    Playing Ramirez at 3rd frees up Johnson to play 2nd. Ramirez will hit (not great defensively) and will turn 36 this yr. So, again, I wouldn’t give Murphy up for him.

    Romine is a no brainer. But what about Cervelli? Would you trade Cervelli for Ramirez (since Cervelli most likely isn’t in Yanks long term plans) straight up.

  20. Cashmoney March 5th, 2014 at 9:57 am

    I would be far more incline to trade J.R than Phelps, the reasons are quite obvious.

  21. Cashmoney March 5th, 2014 at 10:02 am

    CC, Brewer will have to absorb a substantial amt of salary to make it work for the Yanks now as Yanks has shut down further spending. Romine or Cervelli, I don’t think it matters as the other side of the equation.

    bottomline, unlikely as of now.

  22. austinmac March 5th, 2014 at 10:08 am

    I want to only trade for someone who is young and can help in the infield going forward.

  23. sjb23 March 5th, 2014 at 11:04 am

    I’ve been advocating a trade for Phelps+others package for Franklin for a while now, but I’m starting to think the Yanks aren’t looking for 2B/SS guys right now as much as a third baseman. With all the statements Girardi’s made about Roberts playing time & as much as they seem to be depending on Kelly Johnson to back up several infield spots, I think they’d rather have Johnson split time at 2nd & actually get someone more experienced at 3rd. Sizemore and/or Solarte seem to be intriguing options, but still come with question marks. Chicago’s Jeff Keppinger sort of fits the bill. There are questions about his arm strength at 3rd, but he has experience there, as well as @ 2nd & 1st. I don’t think he is anything more than a utility player for Chicago this season, & the White Sox owe him $8M+ in 2014 & 2015. My guess is it won’t take much to get him.

    Since the White Sox want a catcher, I propose Romine (I’d rather keep Murphy) & Nunez (I believe Chicago was interested in Nunez a couple of seasons ago) for Jeff Keppinger. Romine gives them a young backup for Flowers, and Nunez becomes their utility infielder @ 3rd & SS. The extra open spot on the Yanks’ 40-man roster enables them to add either Solarte or Sizemore and stash either @ Scranton for depth.

    I’m also starting to think that David Phelps may be more valuable to the team as a late-inning reliever, rather than trade bait. Phelps seems to have nerves of steel, doesn’t get rattled, nor does he routinely give up the long ball. I think his velocity would also tick up a notch or two if he knows he’s only throwing one inning. Personally I’d rather not depend on Shawn Kelley, who may have overachieved last season. Of course Pineda’s ability to step into the #5 spot is important to free up Phelps for a role in the pen.

    For some, getting pregnant isn’t as easy as it sounds. If you’ve been trying to conceive for over a year without success or are investigating and/or attempting alternate or more intense methods of conceiving (The Next Level), we may be the group for you. From medical intervention to careful charting, we’re ready to support you and your decisions along your next level journey. This is not a group for those just beginning their TTC process “Getting Pregnant” is the group to start with. We’re blunt and matter of fact, and cheer hard when Next Level TTC becomes a pregnancy! Do not post about your BFP if you are not a recognized active member!For some, getting pregnant isn’t as easy as it sounds. I figure those are easy to get and can be used no matter what the future gender is and even if they are more one way than the other they can go under clothes. But I’ve done good. I’ve not bought anything baby related in a while or even gone through the baby dept (since my m/c it’s just been to hard for me to look at things and think “Oh in ___ number of weeks our baby could have worn that”) The stuff that I do have is in the attic away from my eyes.
