     the Yankees will look at first baseman Lyle Overbay, sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

    The Boston Red Sox released Overbay on Tuesday.

    Overbay, 36, would add to the Yankees' spirit-of-'06 roster, because that is the year he had an .880 OPS. Vernon Wells, Kevin Youkilis, and Chien-Ming Wang are also recent Yankees additions who excelled in 2006 -- and haven't done as much since.

    Overbay played just 65 games in the majors in 2012 and had an OPS of .727. He is left-handed, something Juan Rivera is not.

    no doubt we find out

    just how short that wall is this yr

    Hafner is worth reviving or at least hoping he stays healthy

     overbay isn't

    I was hoping they went for Chase Headley

    but the NYY injuring bug is bigger than just the 25 man roster ;-)

    I guess we caught a break by not getting him

     

    naaaaaa

    If you didn't care,why did you bother opening the thread?I thought the title was pretty obvious that it wasn't another thread about Jackie Bradley Jr or anything else you might consider "newsworthy".

    If you're not interested,don't read it.Pretty simple.

    Really?

    I have a feeling the Youkilis of 2008-2010 begs to differ. :)

    why couldn't we have spent 100,000 to send him to the minors?i think he was worth that much.i don't think carp is that good.but he can play outfield and 1b.i just don't get why we couldn't as a high payroll team allow for a 100,00 deal.

    he would have to OK it. Most players would rather be playing in the bigs making the league minimum at worst than playing in AAA waiting for someone to get hurt..

    bosox hero--I don't think it's as simple as just paying him $100,000 and sending him down. With the CBA the player with 6 or more MLB years of time has some rights. I think it was Peter Abraham that kind of explained in the On Line Headlines on the Sox Page.mef's reply gets to the personal aspect--if you had a chance to play in the majors over AAA would you take it?

    The chances are very good he will be on the Yankees 25 man roster opening day.

           GM Zac,

             Team wide injuries can cause GM's to do strange things.

             Never did I think the yanks would be players for guys like Overbay,Wells,Youk and Wang at this point of their careers.

             I'am sure TWM has a list of top prospects that deserved consideration over the players they inked.

            Cashman should have called him first.

    Evidently Overbay has three days to make a sufficient impression--he stays goes to the minors or is DFA'd.

    pinstripe may have the best thought--move Youk to 1B and put the rookie Mustelier at 3B. I haven't seen him play there but he's had a good sping with some pop. Nice to see some youth injected into the Sox and Yankee lineups.

    They're scraping the bottom of the barrel; at this juncture, I'm surprised they didn't invite Giambi.

    SS is also an  issue.

    They're looking for blow-out patches not signing any of these people to long term contracts.

    Big difference.

    Other than Musty who is actually a 28 year old Cuban with a good bat and suspect glove who Zac mentioned there are no prospects in the organization for either position ready for major league play.

    Players for guys like Youk? So Youk is washed up huh? Is that what you think?

    Wang was given a minor league contract no big gamble he deserves a shot to try to come back he is one of ours. 

    Why no one here takes any of your opinions seriously.

    thank you for the info.i just thought he would be needed as a late inning replacement.but i have since read that napoli is improving immensely.so i guess it isn't to big a loss.
