    Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    BP has him as top of the list last year in preventing inherited runners from scoring.

    HIs stats for the last few years have been decent.

    Anybody familiar with him?

    The White Sox acquired him in our infamous White Flag trade with the Giants. He had control problems with us but apparently he got that straightened out.

    Apparently we're talking to him.

    Looks like a pretty decent option - keeps the ball in the park and doesn't give up many free passes.

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    I read articles that stated his first preference is to go back to the giants and he prefers to pitch in the NL. The mets have also shown interest in him.

    Scotty Eyre. I remember him as a 150 pound kid throwing fire in the South Atlantic League in the early 90's. Hurt his arm, and never threw that hard again (though he did put on about 75 pounds).

    He'd be a good fit. Solid lefty.

    I thought he already signed with someone - maybe the Giants? I could be mistaken.

    Nope. That post article I linked is dated today.

    I like Eyre, but he's not my first choice.

    Aah, ok. Then what I read was that he was interested in staying with the Giants, or atleast was talking to them.

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    If we get Ryan and Farnsworth, then no. If we get one (or none) of those two, then I wouldn't mind takign him

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    He's a good option but not a top one.

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    After Ryan he is the best FA lefty reliever. I'd go after him even if we sign Ryan, as Ryan would be a set-up man and won't be used in the traditional role of a lefty out of the pen.

    I don't see Cash laying out that much for the bullpen.

    Ryan + Gordon/Farnsworth + Eyre?

    In their quest for bullpen help, the Yankees have been in contact several times with Tommy Tanzer, the agent for left-handed relief pitcher Scott Eyre. The 33-year-old Eyre is unlikely to re-sign with the Giants, for whom he made 243 appearances over the past three seasons, but it's believed his preference is to remain in the National League in spite of strong interest from the Yankees, Red Sox, Indians and White Sox.

    Does anyone know what type of free agent Eyre is? A, B, or C?

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    Eyre has named 4 NL teams as his preferred landing spots but has not named any AL teams. Maybe that will come later, or maybe he just doesn't want to switch leagues.

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    Ryan is my first choice for the lefty spot, with Matt Smith from the minors as the situational lefty. Smith is murder against lefties, especially last season, when someone got the idea to move him to the pen, after the first month of the season. He can hamdle it, in spite of his problems in the AFL.

    Taveras would be my late inning righty, with Mo at the end, of course.

    Smith, Taveras, Ryan, Mo. With Sturtze, Small/Proctor/DePaula in the long relief roles.

    Sounds good to me.

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    Re: Scott Eyre for bullpen?

    He wasn't leaving the National League so the Yankees were never an option.
