    Sexson cut by Mariners

    Interesting? Not to me, but some on this forum have wanted Sexson on the team. The story mentions that Bedard is on the dl as well, so it looks like he probably won't be traded.

    And in response to the (I'm sure soon) question. No the Yanks should not go after him.

    Sure for a minor league contract why not. Right handed power off the bench couldn't hurt and his numbers against left handed pitchers are excellent.

    I know, I worded it that way so it wouldn't look like I was responding directly to you.

    For a pro-rated league minimum? It's a no brainer, he could be the right handed bat off the bench we've lacked all season. It's not like we rake against lefties.

    He's not a long term solution or anything and if he has an attitude you just cut him and no big loss.

    For the league minimum and considering the makeup of the team, yes, absolutely, and better still until Matsui is at full strength, a platoon of Sexon and Broussard or Miranda at DH wouldn't be terrible.

    I think he is worth trying off the bench against lefties on a minor league deal.. Once Matsui returns and Posada begins to catch full time I would designate Moeller and try Sexson.

    RH power off the bench, and late inning defensive replacement for Giambi. For low $ sure.

    Yanks need to make this happen. Theyve been dying for RH power off the bench for a few years now.

    Game on the line, LH reliever is in the game, Yanks need a 2R HR to tie it up. Who would you rather bat? Gardner, Melky, Moeller, Molina, or Sexson?

    Hmmm...a pop up, a ground out, a fly out, a foul out, or a K...

    Still better than Betemit as a platoon 1B both offensively and defensively. The only reason I'm reluctant is we don't know Posada's medical situation, whether the Yankees are covering up a re-injury. If that's the case they may need to keep some games open at 1B for Posada, which means no role for Sexson.

    Re: Sexson cut by Mariners

    Since he is hitting lefties well this year, I'd take a chance on him at a righty off the bench.

    I really wouldn't mind Barry Bonds for league minimum.

    Re: Sexson cut by Mariners

    Sexson is at least a decent fielder, so to bring him to the roster in place of Moeller might make sense (provided they don't need a 3rd catcher), but in terms of a bat they would be better off with pretty much any other right handed hitter.

    Say No To Sexson (which I am sure Cash will)
