    Who is going to DH?

    I guess the short answer is Gomes, since he can't play defense. Wouldn't it be nice to have Vmart now? He could play 1B full time and Naps could DH. Perhaps we could make a deal with Detroit to get him back along with Porcello.

    What would it take?

    We don't need VMart now or 2 years ago.

    I'm also glad we got Barnes and Owens as comp picks for letting him walk.

    Nava is better from the left side.

    Maybe Gomez or Lavarnway.

    We also don't need Victorino or Gomes but we are saddled with them.

    I never said we needed Vmart, I said it would be nice to have him.

    No it wouldn't; just like it isn't nice to have SV or Dempster.

    I would rather take Barnes and Owens than 4 yrs - 1 yr of VMart.

    Me too.  I will also happily take Adrian Gonzalez back.  And Adrian Beltre.  And Jon Papelbon.  And, shoot, Josh Reddick while we are at it.

    Is Victor even walking yet? How about we bring in Grady Sizemore too?

    Gomes is hitting .208 against Sabathia in 24 at bats Nava .286 with a HR.  Easy choice




    I didnt realize that. I will remove my earlier comment and go with Nava then.

    What is there to like?  34 y.o., missed 2012, has a .666 in ST, and is owed $25M.

    Gee, I don't know, how about this career line:

    .303 .370 .469 .840

    And the fact that he can catch. Do you actually think that the ST OPS is reflective of his talent?

    You are losing it JB.

    Given his knee surgery,  it is extremely unlikely Martinez ever plays catcher again...

    I wouldn't trade Carp for VMart and that salary, which would put us over the luxury tax limit. I might do  Ellsbury and Carp for Porcello and VMart.

    We need Vmart about as much as Bill Gates needs Wal-Marts

    If he could catch, he would still be catching.  He wasn't catching even when he was healthy.

    Plus, we already have two catchers.

    And I don't pay too much attention to career numbers when players get old.

    Still, if you want to spend $25M/2 for an aging DH, because our DH is going to miss 2 weeks, go with it.

    You probably won't remember it, but I brought up the subject of trading for VMart back in November, before Napoli.  My suggestion back then was that Detroit pick up $6M of his salary to make the deal even.  $12.5M is way too high for a guy that just missed a full season of BB.
