    Next man out of the Bronx!

    As reported on MLBTR. com this morning another pitcher has escaped the clutches of the evil empire. Boone Logan has decided that he will taking his talents to Colorado for the 2014 season. Can either Jacoby or McCann pitch?

    Logan is a pretty good bullpen  lefty.

    I'm surprised the Yankees let him get away.

    Boone Logan - R - Yankees

    CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rockies will sign Boone Logan to a three-year, $16.5 million contract.

    Josh Outman has been great the last two seasons versus lefties, so it's puzzling as to why the Rockies felt the need to give a lefty specialist $5.5 million per season. Logan has posted a 3.38 ERA with 202 strikeouts across 176 innings over the last four seasons for the Yankees, so he'll certainly help. It just doesn't seem like a great way for Colorado to spend their money. Logan is coming off arthroscopic elbow surgery but will be 100 percent for spring training.

    Boone Logan, IMO, is a waay bigger loss. That's really surprising. I wonder if Cano leaving along with so many holes in the team is making everyone panic.

    Jete, I'm sorry. Seriously. I enjoy the Yankees demise (IMO, of course), but I honestly feel bad for a person/Yankee fan like you. I hope you understand that. I know you're here, and I know you read posts here, like mine :), but I also know what it's like to be on the losing end of things. On the bright side, they are the Yankees...ya never know.

    it's all good Kim, i can take the knocks...i said back in the offseason that i had already prepared myself to 2013 possibly being the year the Yanks could/would take a hit but hope they could compete somehow..it happens...despite the constant crowing of some, you guys are well versed in what losing seasons feel like...but are also proof positive that despite your choice of words, not a demise does it make..

    I have been in Manhattan for the past month and a half for work and who you should really feel bad for are the Mets fans.  There is a collective manic depression among fans of that team around here right now... I can't even listen to talk radio here or I want to run a hot tub with a sharp blade.

    They signed Colon to a two year deal with the fat baaastard is 41 years old after his best season and paid 2 years @ $20 million until he is 43 years old... he was paid to take the place of Matt Harvey who is out for the season.   Every fan who calls in thinks he had a steroid year since his last year was so good after being terrible (including a bout with the Red Sox).  Harvey had Tommy John on October 22 and pitched to a 2.27 ERA in 177 innings next year.

    The other sign they had was Chris Young for $7.25 million for one year and Granderson... that is literally it for a team that was 22 games back in their division last year with possibly the best starter in the NL in Harvey making rotations.

    Re: Next man out of the Bronx!

    I am always happy when somebody who showed that they can handle the bright lights in Yankee Stadium leaves the pin stripes.  Logan was really good... I'm glad we don't have to face him next year and I'm glad the bullpen took another step back in addition to losing Mariano to father time.

    Re: Next man out of the Bronx!

    Boone LOgan getting $5.5mill a year for 3 years might be the worst contract this offseason.  That is ALOT for a LOOGY who throws maybe 40-50IP per year.

     

    In contract, the best contract to date looks like the Twins' steal of Phil Hughes, for only $2.5mill more per year.  They got a 170IP starting pitcher whose biggest fault is that he cannot pitch in Yankee Stadium (2013: 6.32ERA at home, 3.88ERA away).  Teams looking for "low cost, controllable" starting pitchers - especially those who play in bigger parks like the Angels - might have missed out here...

    Re: Next man out of the Bronx!

    the Yankees lost out in the bidding war with KC for Omar Infante, the bombers offered 3 @ 24mil and KC ponied up 4@ 30mil. Score another win for keeping the Yankees down! Can't wait to see what happeens when all the chairs are filled, with the last big chips being still in play most are high end Starting pitchers and High end closers! Break out that paycheck NYY you ain't getting noone on the cheap, at least noone who is a franchise maker! Jete I ain't hating I'm just relating!!! Seems like #22 is the new jersey for former Red Sox Stars who venture onto Yankees rosters...

    and had the Yanks signed him, you guys would have trotted out every negative you could think against Infante...starting with ...he'll be 35 before  that contract ends...

    probably jete.

    but the signing (or rather, non-signing) of Infante wouldn't matter either way. The yankees are toast if they don't find some pitching. Not signing infante was a better move in the scope of things. more money to spend on a decent pitcher.

    I'm already on record as saying Infante for $32M/4 would've been a good signing by the NYY.

    They still a 2B.  And they need an ace SP probably, but that will also cost on the level of 3x Infante.

    I would not have re-signed Logan either if it took the 5 M per year for a three year contract to keep him.

    He is only a decent situational lefty and is going to make more than Koji?   Another guy can be found by the Yankees to do what Logan did for far less money in an off season where the Yankees are worried about the luxury tax.

    Can't blame the Yankees for no longer wanting to supplement so many of the bottom teams with millions and millions of dollars. They are set to save tons of money by not going over the tax this year.

    No, I would have STARTED with "he isn't very good and was coming off a career year."  I would have brought up the 35 thing, though.

     

    So, be happy they did not get him.  And allow me to keep the dream alive that they waste whatever prospects they have left on the incredibly overrated Brandon Phillips...

    I can't blame the NYY for this one.  The Rox don't have that much money, and they pay Logan $100k/IP+?  He had a good year in '13, but his two years before that were 3.62 ERA with a 1.361 Whip, against mostly just lefties, with less than 50 IPs per year.
