A-Rod was an A free agent, Posada was an A free agent and Rivera was an A free agent. Pettite is an A free agent. We've already signed 3 and are trying to sign a forth in Andy. What was the rule again about not being allowed to sign more than 3 A free agents this year? Will it have an impact on us if we need to sign Rowand or something?

Young players improve defensively normally, they don't regress.

I'm pretty sure resigning your own players doesn't count, so there would be no problem with signing Rowand.

There are a lot of problems with signing Rowand, this just won't be one of them.

Why are you so in love with ROWAND? You think Melky at 23 is going to get worse next year, but ROWAND at 30 isn't? WTF?

ya i can see him becoming a very good left fielder... but theres no way his range is going to improve... he's going to get somewhat bulkier...possibly alot...also he'd probably be a better hitter if he bulked up and lost some speed

i meant melky's D will get worse in 3-5 years... . i was referring to making him the yankee CF for the rest of his career setitment being thrown around on this thread

ROWAND for the next three years will be better than melky...the team will improve dramatically with him in center
