    If you like .288 OBP's having the most AB's per game, I can see why you'd like it.

    With a .316 OBP. Almost as bad as Martin and definitely among the worst of the regulars on the team.

    Re: Arod has a fractured wrist

    With A-Rod out a couple of weeks the Yanks could use another right handed bat to platoon with Chavez at 3b. One guy I thought of who could still be useful at DH once A-Rod comes back is Aramis Ramirez, who the Brewers might look to trade once they fall completely out of contention. He's having a solid year and has always been a very good hitter. He would give the clubhouse another solid veteran that will show up to play everyday

    Why not Laird? He's hitting .366 over the last 10 days.

    Chavez to get the bulk of the starts or Pena?

    Well at least Pena can field. But he can't hit at all.

    I recall his fielding wasn't pristine either last time he was up. I really hope that he is not Cashman's "answer" to this problem.

    I was thinking Laird, also.
    Wasn't he like the defensive player of the year last year?

    Can Corban Joseph play any 3B? He's been raking in AAA this year and he's not likely to have much of a future at 2B as long as Cano is on this team.

    Seriously. Even if his defense was on the level of Brooks Robinson he's still worthless offensively and we already have a black hole at the bottom of the lineup in the Stewart/Martin combo.

    I would rather have ARod play with a broken wrist than have Ramiro Pena as our 3B for the months of August and September.

    I'm pretty sure that recalling Pena means that it will be a Chavez-Nix platoon unless and until another move is made.

    Pena will be the backup to Jeter etc., a job for which Nix has proven his inadequacy. Pena is being called up to take that job, not to take Arod's.

I bear no ill will against Hernandez and Ackley needn't be injured. A well-placed fastball to a meaty part of the upper legs will suffice. I just think Seattle needs to be reminded that it can't drill two batters and nearly a third (Ibanez in top 9th. I don't count the Ichiro HBP since it was a breaking ball off his foot) and break a person's hand without having to face consequences. Heck, if no warning is issued I would throw at the next guy (probably Saunders) as well. Again, aim low. I don't want injury - just accountability. Tempers might flare a little but the Yankees could stand to get fired up a bit, especially after what happened this evening.
    With a .194 batting average and .272 on-base percentage at home this season, the Seattle Mariners might welcome putting the leadoff hitter on base today.

So its possible the Yankees don't even have the pieces Arizona is looking for. I mean they checked-in on him now and if something could be worked out don't you think they would've gotten a little further (maybe they did and we didn't know about it, but it doesn't seem like anyone was close to landing Upton). What's really going to change in the offseason?

    Plus a guy like Upton is likely to cost a lot more than Headley and while he is a better player he'll be paid more than twice Headley's salary over the next couple years.

    If you can get Headley for a fair price (good prospects, but nothing ridiculous) its a smart move. Headley also affords the Yankees defensive flexibility when ARod returns as he can play some OF and 1B if needed.

    Just based on San Diego extending Quentin, I don't see them trading Headley unless the get something ridiculous from another team as they can easily afford him in their budget with new ownership coming in.
    Poor ownership can hold a baseball team down for years!

    Ichiro! should bat ninth. If nothing else, it might cut down on Captain Groundball's double plays.

    Per LoHud, Ichiro leading off today, with the Captain batting second. Same effect, I guess.

    Re: Arod has a fractured wrist

    Did the YES Guy misspeak?

    I'm watching Yankees Batting Practice and he said Arod will be out 4 to 6 Weeks

    I thought it was 6 to 8 Weeks?
