More Grown Man Gossip today at the Winter Meetings.
First, here’s a recap of yesterday’s dish.
And today’s big rumor.
Our man in the field, Chad Jennings has Yankee notes, here and here.
Games We Play
Word has it that Eric Chavez has signed with the D backs. Shame. I liked rooting for Chavey. Does this mean the Yanks overspend for one year of Youk?
Keppinger signed with the Pale Hose. Third base options are drying up.
I hope Plan B is not Nunez.
Can Stephen Drew play 3rd? Might be worth trying out there.
1] I think Youk is on his way, and has the Yanks over a barrel.
Unless Ferocious Scott Brosius or Charlie (Old man Boggs can ride the pine) Hayes wants to come back for a year?
If Keppinger was the righty half of a 3B platoon the Yanks were trying to assemble...who was the lefty? Juan Francisco of the Braves, maybe?
I have a sinking feeling that this just won't go right for the Yanks regardless of what they choose. Cashman seems like he's reading Cliff Notes on Moneyball with a few pages missing...
