    Re: Will Yankees be interested in Napoli?

    The Yankees have several firstbaseman on their team, a few more on the D.L. and several more players who at this point probably should be first baseman.  Yes, some of those players will be leaving this year but the Yankees have effectively zero need for another First Baseman.  They will be interested in Drew, in other years perhaps Ellsbury as well.

    Let them take Napoli and Drew.... no different then when they took Boomer and Tiant... we are the team to beat in 2014, 2015, 2016 with or without Napoli/Drew.



    I could see the Yankees taking Drew, Nap, Salty and Ells for that matter.

    I say we let all four go:

    Sox sign Granderson for RF or CF

    Vic stays in RF or CF

    Ross and Vazquez or Lava--C

    Carp @ 1 B

    Xander to SS and

    WMB at 3 B

    Grande's 30 dingers makes up for the power of Ells & Nap. Not the fielder Ells is but he can steal some bags and has a better arm than Ells. Some "Grandesalami's" in the future.

    Xander will hit at least a dozen homers

    Lava will begin to show the ability Bill is confident he has.

        Hi Zac,

          Yankees will go into the offseason with two plans of attack. One if Cano remains a yankee and one if he leaves.

         Either way I don't see them a player for Drew. Between his salary demands and Jeter's contract it would tie up 25M at the SS position.

                (FWIW I don't see Boston trying to keep Drew.)

        Salty makes sense for NY and I agree with you Napoli doesn't.

                 ( Sox will attempt to resign both)

        Yanks need two outfielders, 3rd. baseman,catcher,3 starters and possible a 2nd. baseman and bench depth.

        They will attempt to accomplish that thru free agent signings and trades involving young arms in their system.

    Why you let go Ellsbury and bring in Granderson??  Granderson isnt taking a discount to join Boston.  He is more likely going to try to find his last best contract offer of his life which mean his contract my not be too far off from Ellsbury's.  Bring back Ellsbury!!

    I would keep him another year. I couldn't have been more wrong when I buried him a couple of months ago. I give him all the credit in the world for making me look stupid. But, he's still a crap shoot.

    The Yankees can't use him. Half their team is some kind of risk, and they don't need another one. The Yankees need everything except a stadium. They are really bad, and getting worse. Those who think Jeter is coming back as the Old Jeter are dreaming, and I think they will probably over-pay for Cano. What the Yankees REALLY should address is their ownership.

    How does ownership address ownership?  They could do whatever they want.

     

    What they need to do is fire Ca$hman and hire a GM who could be a team around a long term plan.  They don't need someone to just hand out blank checks to every Free Agent with a pulse.

    If he does, it'll be titled "The Bullet We Dodged".

     

    Please, even the best players get booed by their own fans, when they don't do well.

    Jeter included.


    While we're talking credibility, are you basing your opinion on what you heard on TV, or were you present at the games Yaz and A-rod were booed?

    Or are they all just "stories you've heard"?

    Yep.....agreed.  Rumor is swirling that the Yanks are very interested in Drew.  Who can blame them?  Above average defender that can hit.  Plus in that small stadium he could do some damage.  At this point Jeter is no more than a DH.

    The NYY have a TON of questions for this offseason, on and off the field.

    They may be looking at a 3b, SS, C, CF, 2b, SPing, Closer, as well as those good depth guys. All while staying under 189M.

    actually yes

    granted I'm much older now

    but the boos for yaz were much meaner & more frightening

    half the people booing arod are doing it just for fun

    They will have $33 Million to spend to get

     

    Closer

    Set Up Man

    Left Handed Reliever

    Catcher

    3B

    3 Starting Pitchers

    This assumes that the money they don't have to spend on ARoids next year could be reallocated to cover Cano's extension.

    But $33 Million for all of that?  There will be no CC, Texiera and Burnett of $425,000,000 to buy a Trophy.  Dear Mr Ca$hman will have to be efficient and savvy - not exactly his forte.  Good Luck!

    Grande is going to be 33 when the 2014 season starts---he will be coming off an injury season.
    The Sox could be in the ballpark with 3 years @ $12 M plus some incentives. Similar total to Victorino's contract. Curtis is a good clubhouse and community person. Certainly a lot less money  than what Ells will be demanding. They will need lefthanded bats with Drew and Ells most likely leaving.

            Zac my friend you are correct in mentioning Arod. I left him off because it's a partial unknown at this time and the salary relief isn't long enough.

     

            I listed need for 2 outfielders because other than Gardner I didn't see a starter. Sori should be the teams DH, Wells and Ichiro backups.

            It will be a very busy off season for both our teams.

            Sox have to decide to go with proven vets or trust a few top  prospects.

            I like Xander but not sold completely on Bradley.

            To be completely honest if the Sox season ended today I wouldn't feel cheated.

            They already have given me more than I ever expected.

    Come to think of it Zac we both forgot about who replaces Mo next year.

    I hope that the Red Sox priorities this off season would be resigning Salty and Drew first.  I prefer Ellsbury over Bradley Jr., but with the price tag for Ellsbury looking more expensive than what the Red Sox would like to pay, the Red Sox front office will be hard pressed to resign him.

    If the Red Sox lose Napoli, you have a few options, my preference would be to move Middlebrooks from third to first, and insert Bogaerts at third if the Red Sox were to resign Drew.  You could also move Nava to first also.

    I was high Bradley in spring training, but watching him since Ellsbury went down, he isn't working the count as much as I thought he would, he swings at alot of first or second pitches.  He seems to be pressing (strictly my observations).  I think he needs a few more months in Pawtuckett.

    It will be interesting to see if Cecchini continues his rapid development in the minors and gets a chance sometime next season.  He could be another answer (at 3rd) if Bogaerts is moved to SS if Drew isn't resigned.

    Re: Will Yankees be interested in Napoli?

    Ben will work within his budget and have contingencies

    Ellsbury is the first priority - 6/100 take it or leave it and then move to Plan B (JBJ)

    Then Lester - most likely execute the option and keep him for one more year (you could always deal him during the season if necessary)

    Then Salty - 2 year 26 million w/ performance triggered 3rd year @ $13 million

    After that, fixing the pen

    Then Napoli - 2 year 26 million (that would give him his original 3/39 deal back in tact that he lost)

     I don't think they bother w/ Drew.  Bogie seems to be ready to take the job at a fraction of the cost.  We'll have to save $ somewhere.

    Remember, unlike the yankees having to cut their budget by $50 million, we could actually increase our budget by $25 million


    AWESOME!!!!!!!

    EXACTLY!!!!  There is no way they would do that for next year.  That's why I really think brinking back Napps for 2 years is perfect...as is brining back Drew.  It gives them a ton of flexibility in the infield next year and Napps can be the DH in 15' when Papi retires and 'the switch' can happen that year.

    It's a possibility.  If Drew accepts and Nap declines.  If Drew is not the SS, then we need to trade Drew and sign a 1B.  I think it be easier at that point to play WMB at 1st, Drew at SS, and XBo at 3rd, then hope Marrero is ready for 2015.

    here's my point:

     

     

     




     

     

     

     

     

     

    2 questions 4 'no cred slash'

    1) will 'no cred slash' ever stand behind his statements with reasonable/credible support

    2) will arod be getting a statue at the fens 30 yrs from now

    the reason I ask is

    I haven't heard any booed like that at fenway since yaz was booed

    and have heard stories of ted getting booed pretty hard  too

    and both those guys have statues




    Zac....that was lame and you know it.  Not too long ago the fans booed Jeter and Mo quite loudly.  All teams fans do that from time to time.  Now if you can gauge the 'mean factor' from the booes you hear on TV than all the power to you....but really...come on, you're better than this.
