    Has anyone noticed..We have no DH??

    If the lineup is set for next year, which it appears is a possibility, the only DH we will have next year is Giambi/Andy Phillips. The plan was to have Phillips as a backup 1B to give Giambi a few days off against lefties, but unless we get someone else, he'll be playing every day against both lefties and righties. Do we want that? Will they sign Sierra as a DH? (hopenot) Will they just keep Phillips in every day? Or will they go out and get someone to fill that hole? If so, who?

    I'm hopin' the Yankees get a CF like a Jason Michaels, move Bubba Crosby to RF, and put Sheff in DH.
    It's not the 27 World Championships that drive the New York Yankees. It's the 28th.

    Re: Has anyone noticed..We have no DH??

    My vote goes to signing Nomar. If Bubba falters, Nomar could play left with Matsui shifting to center. If not, Nomar could DH or even play some 1B. If any infielders or oufeilders gets hurt we have a backup option better than Womack, and we'll feel alot better giving Jeter, A-Rod, Cano days off.

    Ummm, no, Just say NO to Garciaparra. I think I'm going to start my own D.A.R.E. program for Garciaparra lovers. I'll call it G.A.S.P. - Garciaparra - Awareness of Suckage Program.

    If possible I would rather re-sign bernie for 2-3 million and DH him or once a true CF is signed move Sheff into the DH spot as previously mentioned ad nauseum.

    As of right now, no. When Sheff DH's we'd have a nice little hole in RF. Plus noone has hinted at taking Sheff out of the OF.

    ACTUALLY... Garciaparra would be an awesome DH IMO.

    Yea I have no clue why Cashman keeps saying that they can start Bubba because they have 8 great hitters in front of him. I count five, but then again ive never been good at math.

    Damn, Nomar @ DH is enticing for the right price and if we have an above-average centerfielder.

    Nomar sucks, but you want to sign Bernie. Just look at their stats for the last 3 years. Nomar can still hit- it';s just a question of him staying healthy.

    I'd take Nomar @ 5 over Bernie for 3M

    I have noticed that, but I think the Yankees are keeping it warm for either Sheffield if they can find a corner outfielder (the Abreu rumor) or Giambi if they can get a first baseman.

    I don't know...I think there's a better chance of Nomar getting injuring himself running the bases than Bernie hitting, running the bases, and playing the outfield combined.

    Between Posada, Giambi, Sheff, Matsui and/or possibly Bernie/Ruben we'll find someone to slot in there.

    sheff. the only reason sheff wasn't the talk of the town for his horrendous OF play was cuz of the implosion in CF.

    sign a glove to play RF. keep sheff's bat intact, away from our pitchers' ERA.

    Would Sheff have a problem with DHing on a regular basis like Giambi?

    I'd take Nomar @ $5mil over Bernie and/or Sierra for free. If Bernie or Sierra come back, our manager will just have to use them, I mean overuse them. I shudder thinking about watching Bernie for another year or two sending those "smoking" groundballs to the second baseman.

    What did Al Bundy used to say, oh yeah, "Just shoot me." Please, please no more Bernie or Reuben.

    Posada, Giambi, Sheff, Matsui rotation works for me.

    Re: Has anyone noticed..We have no DH??

    I think the Yankees want to keep DH relatively open, becasue they think Duncan will be ready to play 1B in 2007. This is why I think it would be a good idea to sign Nomar to a 1 or 2 year deal. It gives us another big bat and it would keep him from being injured. If that doesn't pan out, I say just bring back Bernie for one more year - I could live with him at DH for a year and give it to Giambi in 2007. Basically, I don't want anyone getting 3 years to be the DH because that would only further block Duncan's path to the majors.

    I really don't think we need another DH, especially another old guy who definitley can't play the field.

    Sheff's numbers in the DH slot the last two years have been outstanding (150 ABs or so). It looks like he would not have a problem at first glance.

    We're not short a DH, we're short a RFer.

    if the money was right for the yanks, i don't think it's a terrible idea. not having to catch could do wonders for this guy. $5M for one year...i'd do that.
