Have at it. There are the holes, assuming that we don't re-sign ANY of the free-agents. Who fills in the holes? Free Agents? Do we have a prospect in the minors?

We need to get hitters in the 3 and 4 hole, a SP, a Closer, Set-up, and some bullpen otherwise.

Minky at 1B, Wilson at 3B, Giradi as a player manager at Catcher, and for a closer, JOba. They fill the spots with 2 more pitchers

See the bold...

I doubt both Mo and Pettite will leave though, meaning we'll only NEED to sign one FA pitcher.

Not sure what it would take....maybe Cano/Melky and another prospect to the Braves for Brian McCann

I could live with a Duncan/Meinkiewicz platoon at 1B

Other than that...just don't feel like looking at all the potential FAs at the moment. I have a feeling Jorge leaves and if so his bat needs to be replaced. McCann is a guy who would do wonders in Yankee Stadium.

I love Duncan, but is he REALLY more than an occasional player at 1B? Yankees need to fill in a LOT of offense if ARod and Posada are both gone.

I filled this in based on your scenario, of Petitte/Posada/MO leaving. I doubt that happens, especially with MO.

I'm sure we can sign some free agents plug into those positions. I want to see this team concentrate on pitching. We turned into the Indians of the late 90's. Trying to win a championship outscoring everyone, instead of pitching like we did during the dynasty.

Yanks need RH bats as it is.... McCann doesn't help there though he's a good hitter.

They need to make a big play for Cabrera or sign a Andrew Jones type.

Thats exactly what they SHOULDNT be doing.

I'd like to see them try and get Mike Lowell. He'd be a perfect fit for the Yanks imo.

Agree. I am assuming the Sox resign the WS MVP.....if so you have to admit the Yanks have no right handed presence in their line-up. Jeter is a nice average hitter but you need some pop from that side or lefties will kill you without ARod.

What a difference a year makes....Lowell is now a nice commodity and not the guy the Marlins dumped in raping the RSox in the Beckett deal.

Id like another right handed bat. Nice underhanded comment about Jeter too. HAll of Famers are average now apparently.

Why would you guys want Joba closing if he can be a starter?

Because we KNOW he's good out of the bullpen. We have NO IDEA what he'll be like in the rotation. He needs to work on his change-up...

Because they don't understand that a guy who pitches 200 innings is more valuable than a guy who pitches 80 for some reason.

No he wouldn't. He is a complete product of fenway park and would be a disaster as a yankee.

So you are saying you wouldn't take the numbers he put up in Florida along with his Gold Glove defense?

His career spans longer than 3 seasons and I'll remind you again....you were absolutely wrong about him THIS season as well when you swore he'd freefall in the 2nd half.

Name a better alternative.

He's a solid hitter who's FLAWLESS at third base.

Fenway helped him, but he's still a solid hard nosed player.

Lowell would be a fine pickup for the Yanks. MadMike is wrong about everything.

C'mon Bob..not everything...I mean he did say..

Wes Welker sucks

Josh Beckett sucks

Randy Johnson is worth 17 mil at his age coming off of back surgery

Chad Pennington is better than Drew Brees

Jason Giambi is a stud

Stolen bases are meaningless

Ron Villone is only a bad pitcher because of Joe Torre

hmmm....I stand corrected

Yeah lets sign a player who, over the last 3 seasons had a BA 100 points higher and a OPS almost 300 points higher in ONE BALLPARK. Great idea.

So Mike Lowell sucks? Umm okay...

Who doesnt suck who's available? There isnt a better option than Lowell on the market.

And maybe if you didnt come off so abrasive in your posts people wouldnt attack you. Just some advice.

I don't care what you think about my posts. I don't call people morons like you do because you can't rebuff arguments with facts.

riight.

Lowell, like I said is a good hitter. Not great, he's good. He'll get you around 20 HR's and anywhere from 85-95 rbi's most likely. He also plays a flawless 3rd base.

What about that argument bothers you?
