  • Yeah the Yanks don't have any room at DH either. Jesus is going to have to DH the 2nd half of the year when he gets called up as well.

    • If they sign Martin, they are signing him to start 100-110 games this year at catcher. The only thing that would stop that is if Montero either improves his defense so much he forces the issue (not happening), or Montero is just embarassing AAA pitching so much that his defense won't even matter.

        I personally think the latter is going to happen. The last choice though would be you guys don't sign Lee, panic, and trade Montero for a SP.

          There is no SP rumored to be had worth trading Montero for. Not even Greinke. He's too much of a wild card for NY.

          • I don't think the Yanks are going to be able to handle Mike Napoli-esque defense back there. Of course, Posada and Cervelli both blew defensively last year but they will probably look like world beaters compared to Jesus.

              Hence the panic part.

                Montero for Armandao Galarraga.

                  Not good enough, the scrub couldn't even throw a Perfect Game.

                    Cervelli is very good defensively. He couldn't throw out a runner last year because he kind of became AJ's personal catcher. And AJ is the easiest pitcher in baseball to run on. Doesn't matter who is behind the plate.

                      I don't think they'd panic. Cashman isn't the type to do that. They'd probably hold off and wait to see what's available in June/July.

                        Ownership might.

                          I know defensive metrics can be off, but that is unbelievably bad.

                            They don't make decisions. Except signing the checks.

                            • Sources saying Toronto and KC in talks about Greinke...AL East raping apparently. I wish the O's could get him but even so it would be a strech to make playoffs... maybe in 2-3 years. Wishful thinking.

                                Well I'm not familiar with how those stats are computed, nor do I care, but numbers aren't numbers in a vacuum. They stand for something real. I'm not sure what they said about Cervelli in 2009 when he was excellent. But his main problem in 2010 was catching AJ all the time. Who can't even come close to holding a runner, and has no idea where the ball is going half the time.
