***yankees official offseason thread*****
 
1. Please don't sign Jorge... He's the only catcher ever to improve at this age and i'm sure it's due to some type of steroid that he'll probably stop taking now since he's gonna get his big contract

2. Make sure pettite and MARIANO will resign before you can the manager (even tho I think he's an idiot)

3. Leave room for GIAMBI to play!!

4. Who are the best defensive CF's available

5. Get ready to trade for johan mid-season

1.) I can understand the argument that Posada probably had a career year and will decline soon, but who out there is better? I think you almost have to sign him to a 3-4 year contract and just hope for the best.

2.) Rivera has already said that he will test the FA market, but I figure he'll be back. Pettitte may want to retire if Torre isn't there, but at the end of the day, I think he'll come back with that $16 million option.

3.) This will probably happen.

4.) Torre Hunter and Andruw Jones are both FA's. As a Braves fan, allow me to suggest that you not overpay for Andruw. He's in a serious decline and Boras claims to want 7 years, $140 million for him. Even if he goes for something like 6 years, $80 million, that contract is going to look very bad in a few years.

5.) I have to think you'd have to give up AT LEAST either Hughes or Joba for Santana. Would the Yankees be willing to do that?

If Rivera did sign with another team would he have to change his number? Cause I think seeing Rivera in anything other than 42 would be kinda odd.

1. The Yankees are going to re-sign Posada.

2. Pettitte's unneccessary next year - I'd like to see him back, but the Yankees' rotation will be much different next season.

3. Giambi sucks. I'll be curious what PECOTA projects for him next season but he cannot get in this lineup with that SLG next year. Trade/waive/whatever - he's useless now. Isn't next year his last year on this contract?

4. Melky Cabrera's pretty good. The Yankees aren't signing a center fielder IMO.

5. If they are going to trade for Santana, they should do it in the off-season. They honestly don't need Santana but if they can get him without giving up Hughes or Chamberlain (unlikely), they should - if he's signed longterm first of course.

triumph, y don't u think the yankes could use someone like santana?? in fact, they prolly need someone to fill a future hole imo...

i think they stand pat at CF, melky is actually more than servicable imo, but who knows with the yankees

because they have hughes and chamberlain, who project to be #1 or #2 starters for the next decade? plus a ton of other starting pitching?

Unnecessary? I really don't see how you don't bring him back.

No way the Yanks can have Johan without giving up Hughes or Joba. Not in the off-season anyway.
