    Very good news. Now to see what Andy decides. If Andy does return do they package Hughes for an OF?

    Wow that's a pleasant surprise as I thought someone here posted that he wanted to pitch in the West Coast as he will be that much closer to his kids in Japan.

    LOL

    In 500+ AAA plate appearances Cervelli has a .248/.334/.323 line

    Tommy John surgery is a lot different than repairing a torn labrum

    But Pineda has one of the few injuries in baseball that doesn't have a great history of recovery, nor does it have an exact timetable to follow. The shoulder is still a pitcher's worst nightmare

    Most likely they would package Nova.

    WOW. This is great news. This was the one guy I wanted back. Like Brian said: we were lucky to get him and waht he did and are lucky to have him this year. I am sure some teams offered him 2 years but did not see this coming. (As for Nova: it will depend on Andy. I really don't know what happened at the end of last season. He looked so good until then.)

    (OK Crevelli is a back up but I like his helmit - it's looks like Spaceballs (great movie) I still don't want Martin back. Yes he has more HRs so does Grandy we need hits.)

    Yeah, Ichiro. You don't believe me that he will get 200 hits, do you? Come on, I didn't let you down on Andy and Jeter, I told you they would have strong years. Trust me on this one. You know how football guys always have one definite pick? Well this is mine.

    That would be awesome if he does, I hope you are right on this one too.

    Well sadly it probably won't make a difference, because I don't think he's coming back with the Yanks.

    Yes, Andy pitched well, but he won a total of 5 games last year and was injured for most of the season. Try not to pull a muscle patting yourself on the back for that one :-)
    My top 10 players:

    1. Babe Ruth
    2. Barry Bonds
    3. Ty Cobb
    4. Ted Williams
    5. Willie Mays
    6. Alex Rodriguez
    7. Hank Aaron
    8. Honus Wagner
    9. Lou Gehrig
    10. Mickey Mantle

    Where do you think he will play? He said he was not playing in the WBC 2013 but I haven't heard much otherwise.

    For 2013 that would make sense but Hughes is a free agent after next season. In 2014 it makes more sense to keep Nova.

    That is a sign he wants to play for the Yanks. They are not fans of the wbc

    Well, I think he wants to play for the Yanks, but I don't think they want him back. They haven't shown any interest, and instead were looking at inferior outfielders.

    Yeah, but just like relationships, it takes two to tango.

    Good. He is a bad fit to replace Swish with Gardner in the other corner. A right handed power hitter is the ideal fit.

    Would you bee happy with 200 hits and 12 home runs? Keep Gardner, try and trade Grandy.

    A. I doubt he gets 200 hits and if he does he probably gets zero walks.

    B. Grandy is the one with some pop. If you got a great deal for Gardner and could get Suzuki on a one year deal then ok. He is similar to Gardner at this stage of his career. Not as good but similar.

    Bottom line is the Yanks need some right handed pop in the lineup.

    Russell Martin wants to play SS in the WBC. Interesting. He claims it is his most natural position and he has played 2b and 3b before as well.

    I know it is a stretch but if he handles it in the WBC, might it be an option as an extra back up?? How much worse could he be then Jeter and Nunez??

    What? Trying to be creative in providing depth in particular when we know Jeter and A-Rod will need time off???
