            I really would like that signing. I don't care what the money is, doesn't really matter as long as it's one year. Batting ninth in a lineup like the Yankees could let him rebound to some of his previous years. Allows us not to rush Montero or Romine as well.

            • Don't see why Martin would pick the Yankees over the Red Sox if the dollar figures were equal. We're capable of giving him more AB's and hitting further up in the lineup. We'll see with that one. I would be pretty disappointed if that were true.

                How are you capable of giving him more ABs? Maybe a few more by hitting 7 or 8 over 9 but thats it.

                  Jason Varitek sucks. And I thought that Jesus was the starter going into the season (or at least until he totally bombs as a defender)?

                    We don't have a catching prospect coming down the pipe that he has to worry about and we're starting Salty and Varitek going into the year. He would hit higher in the order, potentially as high as 6th. Wouldn't be insurgence for a guy in case he bombs, might have a future here if he plays well.

                      I guess because he doesn't have to split time with Jorge only Varitek and Salty both of who aren't very good.

                        If we sign Martin, Monetero will start in AAA. And Martin will be our starter. He'd start the majority of the games.

                        • Martin would also be able to DH a solid amount on the Yankees as well. Not so much on the Sox

                            Jorge's not catching this year. If he starts 10 games at catcher unless because of injury, I'll be shocked.

                              This I doubt. Jorge is going to be the everyday DH.

                                No he wouldn't. The Yankees have a rotating door of Posada/A-Rod/Jeter at DH.
