    Certainly a decent little buy low option. I know we all hate the lefty specialists but Tim Byrdak will probably come relatively cheap, is a killer vs lefties and has been pretty durable throughout his career.

    Not that I'm aware of. He's pretty dominant and knows the AL East well.

    I wish we could have A Rod on a similar year-to-year basis. That would make me feel warm and fuzzy.

    This would be an excellent addition for next year and beyond.

    I think it's kind of an interesting idea. Solves the DH issue too; Hunter makes ~60 starts in the OF against LH starters, 50-60 at DH against RHP, and it still leaves close to 50 DH starts each for A-Rod and Jeter, which is probably more than they'll need anyway.
    I kinda like it:

    pros:
    Hunter and Ichiro help address some of our BA deficiencies
    Hunter as a pt-DH will help keep him fresh, given his age (37)

    cons:
    Hunter is likely due for a tank season after a great one last yr
    depending on how much Hunter and Ichiro want, this could be expensive
    Ichiro is likely due for a[nother] tank season after a short resurgence last August/Sept


    all 4 hitters have flaws, but they also have good upside. Girardi would have a tough job balancing all 4 getting playing time, and I fear Gardner would end up the odd-man out, because he's the least veteran.
    like delv, but better

    I seem to remember some talk about trading for him last year or the year before and being disappointed that it didn't happen.

    That would be.... wow. I'm really against signing relief pitchers this year but him on a one year deal with a team option... that would be magic.

    Why is his age relevant if he'd be willing to sign to a one-year deal?

    Eli Whiteside seems like a kind of random pickup, mostly because he's not really an improvement on Stewart (he and Chris were the Giants' catchers in 2011 after Buster Posey went down). Think he'll mostly be used for trading later?

    He'll be DFA in a few months, stored in Triple-A with Romine and be his backup. Nothing wrong with it, imo.

    Assuming he makes it through waivers, which he should since the Yankees were awarded the waiver claim, I think that is their plan.
    Forgive me for taking the Contrarian view

    Soria isn't a free agent is he? This is definitely something I'd love to get. Soria is young, he could take over Mo when he's done. Can anyone tell me how much prospect wise a young closer/8th inning guy would cost?

    The Royals declined his option so he's a FA.

    If the Royals had exercised his 2013 option at $8M, they would have kept the rights to a 2014 option valued at $8.75MM. If I'm Cashman I would offer a similar deal (maybe add another option year).

    The Red Sox have shown interest in Torii Hunter, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Hunter, a free agent, has previously expressed interest in playing in Boston alongside David Ortiz.
    "I'm open to anybody, especially if David is there," Hunter told WEEI.com in late August. "David is one of my guys. We were roommates in Minnesota and he's one of my brothers.

    I am confident that he will accept the qualifying offer or will agree a deal with the Yankees at similar money.

    Then this is a no brainer. Cash should definitely do it. But, here's a question, does Soria really want to be the 8th inning guy? He might go somewhere where he could get a guaranteed closer job for 2013.
