A Needed Day o Rest


The Yanks are patching it together with their suspect infield and sooner or later moves will be made.

In the meantime, sure is nice to have a guy like Ichi around, huh?

Chad Jennings has the notes from last night’s game (and he provided this cool picture too).

If Stephen Drew had a different agent he'd already be on someone's team. I dunno how the Yanks don't give him a call now. And yes, i apologize for my positive remark about their depth; I was hoping the infield wouldn't fall apart thatquickly.

Just a guess but Romine and Sizemore are likely if they can find a roster spot. Scranton is short players with Wheeler injured. The Yanks are scrambling to cope with openings on the lower levels as well. Good thing they are off today.

1) Yeah. How about a Drew?

I think Ichiro should learn 1st base.

Do the Angels have a 1st baseman? Knowing the Angels and their lopsided trades, we should propose that we trade Ichiro for Trout. If they would take on Vernon Wells and all his salary, they just might do it.

Calling Stephen Drew...

thing with Drew is, he probably wouldn't be ready for a few weeks anyway...plus unless Roberts really is hurt (which is totally possible) it probably sends a bad message to say "If you miss two games you could very well lose your job"

All that being said I think Drew could help the Yankees, as well as a lot of other teams, and it's jaw-dropping to me that he hasn't been signed.

5) I agree with your assessment at to how long it will take Drew to get ready, butwhat happens if Jeter gets dinged up worse? Drew will not be on the board for that much longer. It was surprising that the Tigers (Who deal with Boras a lot) did not take him when they lost their starting SS.

I wonder how much this has to do with the Yanks not wanting to disrespect Jeter and have all this energy on Drew as his heir apparent?

Boras will not drop the price a whole lot, but it must be lower now that the season has started. But a one more injury to the Yanks infield and Boras will be in full fleece mode, if he isn't already. Drew might also push him to get a deal done, as I imagine this is not where he wanted to start the season watching and not cashing checks.

[7] Actually it says they are not interested in either of them unless their asking price comes down. Like I said, if it were anyone besides Boras, he or they would have been signed already. Boras offers so much pie-in-the-sky but he's only really interested in his clients who are currently superstars because he can get the most ducats for/out of them. Morales says it's not fair; I agree, but there's nothing that says anyone has to spend that much on second-tier or less players.
