Lets say they all leave... Yankees 08 lineup

Recommended Posts

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.

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

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.

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.

Name a better alternative you moron

Anyone who doesn't suck. And lay off the personal attacks.

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.

You're a moron. Thats a fact.

Sorry.

And you have no idea how to craft an argument so you resort to name calling.

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?

Nothing bothers me. I just pointed out the fact that he's a completely different player away from fenway which you have no responce for. He's a 33 year old coming off the best year of his career because of a small ballpark. Thats the DEFINITION of buying at an apex and makes zero sense for the yankees.

Of course Fenway inflates his stats. He's still a pretty solid hitter though and is arguably the best defensive 3rd baseman in baseball. A 3 year deal isnt a bad move.

WHO RIGHT NOW IS A BETTER ALTERNATIVE?

Youre also basically saying we shouldnt resign Posada either.

There is no FA who makes sense. If a trade isn't available the yankees are better off putting betemit at 3rd.

As for posada he's had 3 great years in a row (on the road AND at home) and any deal with him comes with the proviso that he'll be a 1B sooner than later.

Well then we disagree. I'd prefer to sign Lowell for 3 years than play Betemit.

Good thing you're not the GM.

Judging by your past ideas, I'd consider the Yankees blessed that you arent either.

Hell, you still think Giambi is a good player.

And you think that someone who is top 40 off all time in OPS, OBP and SLG sucks. LMAO. But you know better than cold hard facts don't you... I mean you watch the games. You must know.

You couldnt give Giambi away right now. Give him away. Thats all you need to know about him.

LOL @ anyone thinking Giambi's any good at this point. LMAO.

Funny how people were spewing this crap before the 06 season too and Giambi was one of the best players in baseball that year.

Says who? The saber geeks?

Giambi hasnt been one of the best players in baseball since Oakland.

Yeah his 975 and 971 OPS's in 05 and 06 were horrible. I mean the yankees should kick him and his 440 OBP out the window for nothing. And you call me a moron...

He cant drive the ball to the gaps. He cant run. He cant play the field. He cant hit the opposite way.

He walks a lot, great. He cant run. He's one of the slowest players in baseball. OBP doesnt mean nearly as much when you can barely move.

Other than that, those numbers look great!
