    And which of those is not going to be playing at first or second or in the outfield, especially against RHed pitchers? Are you counting on Dan Johnson, like that other guy?

    I was of the thinking that the DH position against LH pitchers would be more difficult.
    The Yankees will not be afforded the luxury of having a superstar DH or 4th outfielder this season (as it looks right now). Therefore, I think they'll play a 4th LH hitting outfielder and have the regular OFer DH for that day.

    And who is that 4th LH hitting OFer whom you assume they will play? They are going to have to add someone to the 40 man roster.

    The poster to whom I responded said all the Yankees needed to do was add a RHed hitting OFer. I pointed out that they also needed a LHed DH and said they would get one. But it seems to me that getting someone who can provide power to the short porch from the left side is important.

    That someone you speak of might not exist. (without significant price)
    It's my estimation, right now, that they'll try to fill the 4th OFer spot from within.

    And where do you find a 4th LHed hitting OFer, or DH, within the organization?

    Johnson looks like the only alternative thus far to DH from the left side. I can't believe they are not going to add someone else before the start of the season.

    But I am repeating myself. If you don't get the point, so be it. I am sure Cashman gets it.

    I certainly don't know all of the outfielders in the minor leagues, but I'm certain there is one that bats LH....
    And yes - the releasing of Chris Dickerson perplexed me.

    Zolio Almonte might be a more legit prospect if he didn't have bad split differentials.

    He could be that guy.

    I think the Yankees are combing the obituaries to look for outfielders... they may sign Musial.

    Finally, something that would be logical.

    But Hafner and Youkilis in the same line-up would bring the Yankees to an all time ugly low, I'm afraid.

    That's good....

    I think with Nick Johnson retired, the Yankees are going in the right decision if they are looking to sign the most oft-injured DH in baseball.

    So what happened to the idea of getting a DH who can play the field too?
