Yankees rumors

  1. Yankees rumors


    I've heard a number of different rumors from the media and Yanks fans. They say the following players on the Yanks roster are a possibility:
    Nomar at 2B
    Varitek at C
    Posada traded to Arizona in a deal for Randy Johnson
    Pedro Martinez or Carl Pavano

    If Giambi comes back 100% (BIG IF) and Nomar is at 2nd, that will be the best infield in baseball (better than Texas and St. Louis), and maybe the best of all time!


  2. And we can't forget Carlos Beltran in CF.


    Man it has to suck to be a Red Sox fan.

  3. If they trade Varitek & Pedro to the Yankees, I'm done with Baseball. I refuse to see half our lineup in pinstripes.

    Pedro and Varitek wouldn't be traded. They are free agents. Along with 15 other Red Sox

    Sorry fellas, he is right. Pedro and Varitek are free to go where they choose.

    And pinstripes would label them TRADER. Like none as seen since the likes of Benedict Arnold.

    True. Either way I would be disgusted.

    The major problem is that players don't think like fans do. All that BS with Pedro and Zimmer is in the past. Varitek and AROD could one day be best of friends. Most athletes want 3 things:
    1) Lots of money, and
    2) A chance to win every year
    3) A chance to play (obviously)

    Some athletes don't even care about #2 ! I'd be willing to bet that one way or another Pedro and Varitek LOVE that Steinbrenner is drolling over them. 10 years ago a younger generation was having this exact same conversation about Roger Clemens, and he will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in Yankee pin-stripes. Again, I'm not a Yankees fan, I just wouldn't be amazed to see some of these guys in NY.

    I know and it's unfortunate. Game 1 in Fenway this year is going to be rough.

  15. They should have NY vs. MLB allstars instead of NL vs. AL if the Yanks get those players.

    Boston has money, they can keep them if they want them bad enough.

  18. i don't even want Nomar he's a crybaby and has no heart
    give me cairo any day

  19. nomar may have no heart but he is still an improvement over cairo.

  20. this is still all rumors

  21. cairo had a great year considering he was our 8/9 hitter and showed heart if you ask me
    nomar SAT OUT the yankee game where jeter made his amazing play
    plus i'd rather not have every superstar in baseball honestly i'm sick of hearing about how much the yankees spend and the offense is fine (especially since they're going to get beltran)
    they NEED pitching both starting and relief

  22. yes good for them if they get beltran, sucks to be them if they pick up nomar for some reason. I guaruntee they don't get vtek. So where does that leave them????

    oh in the same spot as last year - sick offense (yet still behind the Angels AND RED SOX) and oh yeh without any pitching.
    I guess they'll need some bats seeing as how they'll be giving up 6-7 runs a game next year with the rotation they have now.

    you may not think that defense wins championships b/c the top two offenses in the league were in the world series but the cards won what 4 total gold gloves this year (3 maybe??) and the sox had 3 gold gloves in their infield, speed in the outfield and plenty of pitching.
    The yankees had a good left infield but no one who could shag a long flyball in the outfield (personally I think it's b/c sheff's pants were like 5 sizes too small. look at him its like he's rocking spandex so of course he couldn't run out those long fly balls. That and he and bernie are old enough to start collecting SS in the next 5 years).

    that being said I'm a die-hard sox fan and will most like vomit on myself if I hear that the sox let vtek and pedro go to the yankees

    The BS with Pedro and Zimmer is in the past because Pedro wont be on the Red Sox next season, and Zimm has been part of the Devil Rays organization since last offseason. One additional problem the Yankees have is that they just lost Willie Randolf to the Mets and Mel Stottlemyre might retire.

  24. FYI - mel is already gone...he quit before he could be fired

  25. I heard Vasquez for Soriano. I would love to see Sori back in stripes. Add Soriano and Beltran, and you have the best lineup of all time. And you know they will be beefing up their pitching.

    Hi Steve

    Looks like we could be in for a very interesting off season.

    Randolph managing the Mets.
    Mattingly filling Willie's spot?
    Stottelmyre retiring.
    Lofton, Sierra, Clark, Ciarro, etc...free agents?
    Bernie...perminent DH?
    Giambi...?
    Shane Spencer is in Columbus (or some other NY farm) last I heard and would be a nice re-addition.
    Johnson...we need pitching!!!

    Too many trips to the show lately without a win for George. I would not be surprised if things get shaken up a bit.
    Look at all these little kids takin' care of the music biz don't their bus'ness take good care of me...

  27. Indeed, I expect it will rival last year. Johnson would be spectacular.

  28. johnson would be great but how are you going to get him? AZ wants pitching and young prospects in return. Randy isn't a free agent so shelling out money just wont cut it. Thats why they couldn't get him before the trade deadline cuz the yankees have no prospects and no pitching to offer AZ.

    The yankees already have $170 million in payroll tied up next year. I wouldn't be surprised if they hit the $210 million dollar mark in another desparate effort to buy a championship

    They are also interested in a catcher, enter Jorge Posada. A multiple year all-star capable of 30+ home run power. He was by far the best catcher in the AL until pudge came over. Sorry Varitek, i guess you have to settle for the back seat.

  30. Boston has made signing Varitek a priority. I think they'll shell out and retain him.

  31. yeh i'm perfectly fine w/ vtek taking a back seat to pudge and jorge...whatever keeps him in boston

  32. A rumor in the San Jose Mercury news is the A's may trade Tim Hudson for Jorge Posada if the A's are far off Hudson's asking price before the season starts. That would suck since I'm an A's fan and Huddy is the heart of the team.
