  1. If Hamiliton takes a “paycut” for the Yankees I will laugh my ass off.

    I still think you offer Hamilton 3yr/30m to play right field.

      hamilton is getting way more than that

      • Murderers' Row Boat 3 years ago

        Key word here is “offer”.

        • jpg1200 3 years ago

          there is no point in wasting time with that offer, you’d be lucky if you could get swisher to sign for that

          • Murderers' Row Boat 3 years ago

            Haha, I just realized I meant 3yr/ 30m a year, and posted a 10 aav. I couldn’t figure out why you guys were busting my balls.

        • Ben_Cherington 3 years ago

          Why? Hell thats not even driving up the price for others. 3/30 lol

  3. lol you think he would come for 10 mil per season? try 3 years 70 mil.

  4. Austin 3 years ago

    @first bullet point. LOL

  5. Kevin Swords 3 years ago

    Excel Sports Management also represents Andy Pettitte, as should be noted.

  6. Murderers' Row Boat 3 years ago

    My fault. Meant to type 3yrs at 30m a year.

      Hamilton wouldn’t have any interest in a 3-year deal (making him a free agent again at the horribly undesirable age of 35), and the Yankees would be making their bad payroll worse with such a deal. They’re trying to make the best out of what have turned into severe overpayment contracts to Rodriguez and Teixeira — not to mention Rivera and Jeter, who are both more likely (MORE LIKELY) to decline than to sustain their recent levels of success.

      • LazerTown 3 years ago

        Yep, would result in a higher aav, but that is still $85M short of his requests. If he completely falls apart then how much money will he get? For a player like him he should take take a long deal, because coming off a 40+ hr year as a cf still makes him desirable, if he goes down to rf and 25 hr power in 3 years which is likely, and with a lower obp and higher k rate he won’t get nearly as much.

  7. Austin 3 years ago

    All the Yankees need to do is sign an above average power hitter and put him at a needed position. It’s not that hard to hit 40HRs in a softball field like Yankee stadium

      Chase Headley…

    • MB923 3 years ago

      Well, it’s only been done by 10 players, with 4 of those 10 only doing it once. Matter of fact, based on BallPark Factors this year, Yankee Stadium was not even the most friendly HR hitters park. It was actually ranked 8th.

      • Tony DiQuattro 3 years ago

        Nevermind…

        • MB923 3 years ago

          I meant by 10 Yankee players in history and this dates back to Ruth and Gehrig years.

          Here are the 10 Yankees who have hit 40 HR, as mentioned some more than once, others just once

          Ruth
          Maris (Once)
          Mantle
          A-Rod
          Gehrig
          Dimaggio (Once)
          Tino (Once)
          Granderson
          Giambi
          Reggie (Once)

      Matt. Stairs.

    • Rich 3 years ago

      Then go and tryout. You yap like it’s a cake walk, so go for it.

  8. Just sign Ichiro for one year and then hopefully Williams and/or Austin will be ready the year after.

  9. JRC 3 years ago

    great keep the team old and useless. :-(

    the yankees signing middle of the road players, i do not believe it. they are just laying in the weeds watching the other teams,then they will swoop down and snag the top of the line players like they have always done. all of this stuff about staying under 180 million dollar payroll to avoid the luxury tax is all a bunch of balonie.the will continue to sign top of the line players.

    • LazerTown 3 years ago

      It makes some sense. Free agent class this year has a ton of scrubs. So many of the players have big question marks. This is not a year to be commiting big money to free agents.

    Yea, and they also said they would stay out of the bidding for tex….
