    With Jeter coming off the injury, and being another year older next year - - combined with ARod possibly having to turn in his glove for good....

    Perhaps it is time to see if Jeter would do a Ripken, move to 3B, and sign say S Drew to take over at SS?

    Crazy?

    Maybe. Doubtful that the FO is going to go over a year, bargain or not. I also dont see a FA taking a 2 year deal at a bargain.

    I think the FO's mo this offseason is to fix the team through trades, overpay on a year deal, or bargain bin. Possibly let the farm fill lesser roles.

    I did not say a bargain. I said a relatively low price.

    And I think you are wrong about the Yankees not doing any multi-year deals this winter. I would bet they do at least one multi-year deal, probably not for a star like Hamilton, but they would give Hairston two years if the price was right. And they would give the ex-Rays IFer a two year deal at the right price, and probably Drew as well. They can't be talking to Cody Ross without knowing that they would have to give him a multi-year pact.

    The problem with Hairston is that he had a career year in 2012 and probably will get more than he is worth from some team. It is not that he will get two years.

    Re: New York Yankees 2012-2013 Offseason Outlook

    The two year deal for Scott Hairston story has been debunked for whatever that's worth. I doubt he gets a two year deal but crazier things have happened. Something tells me they're going to be in "wait and see" mode for anything significant on the outfield market. I doubt they make any moves there before the Winter Meetings end and aren't going to pick up someone who'll prevent them for making a move if a guy like Josh Hamilton's market completely evaporates or if they can swing a deal for Upton.


    My guess is they'll patch up the infield and sign another starter to a mL deal before they get an outfielder (a returning fogey like Ichiro or Ibanez notwithstanding).

    Wouldn't mind seeing Grady Sizemore on a minor league contract. Could be a low risk, high reward player. His injury background is a bit scary tho.

    I think it more likely that you would see a Nunez/Chavez or maybe even a David Adams or Corban Joseph/Chavez platoon than signing both you Youk and Chavez.

    I heard someone pose this very question on MLB this afternoon, and wondered. Is $30 million worth it? I like the concept of overpaying a guy for a one year deal, but that sounds like crazy money to me.

    Actually, he's already slated to miss substantial time in 2013:

    It is an absurd amount of money, but perhaps the only way the Yankees can land an impact bat to replace the losses of Swisher/ARod while honoring the magical $189 million threshold for 2014.

    Yikes. what if he has a great year, then goes out on the open market for a multiyear deal next winter? Holy smokes! He'll be asking five years, $200 million at least.

    Joel Sherman lists the possible replacements:

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/yanke...dW6KMTlDI6RxCL

    1. Stephen Drew
    2. Chavez
    3. Nakajima
    4. Keppinger
    5. Headley
    6. Reynolds
    7. Youkilis
    8. Rolen
    9. Hairston Jr.
    10. Scutaro

    Read the full article with explanations...

    Let's get Reynolds and see if he & Granderson can team up to strike out 500+ times in one season.

    Seriously, I have a gut feeling Yuk will be a Yankee.

    The payroll thing....

    NYY have been open to talks about Curtis Granderson. If they move his $15m salary, it would provide more flexibility to do other things.

    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    Imagine the outfield being Ichiro, Gardner, Ibanez / platoon journeyman. Good luck with that.

    He did, but he also finished poorly and teams seem to be leery of giving him a long term deal. If he doesn't find a long term deal to his liking, he may be inclined to take a one year deal at an elevated salary and re-enter free agency next winter.

    It may not be the worst idea for Hamilton, who could potentially hit 50 HR playing in YS and further enhance his value as a FA for 2014.

    Josh Hamilton in NY? He has one relapse per year outside of NY. That guy in NY with all the temptations in Manhattan? I was sitting in the bleachers in the summer of 2009 when Texas was in town. The bleacher creatures started chanting "Rehab". Hamilton turned around gave them the finger.

    Exactly. This is becoming ridiculous. If they replace him with some aged veteran (only because that person is willing to take a one year deal) I'm going to become enraged. This team plays in New York and is a billion dollar organization. There is NO reason for them to act like they're the Royals.
