Extreme scenario but possible..  What happens if we stand pat this year AND lose BOTH Granderson and Cano as FA next year? Likely? No. But possible. That's why Hamilton makes sense. One or both of Granderson and Cano will have to be replaced next year and our offense is now already average losing Swish and Martin

I'm going to say between now and next offseason, we'll have another bat in the lineup. I'm going to say that the Yankees will make a big effort to trade for someone like Upton or come up with something that we haven't thought about. I don't mean just Upton but a player with his talent level. I don't believe for one second they are going to let their middle of the order go without either re-signing or bringing in another bat. That's my two cents.

Justin Upton makes no sense for this team, not only would trading for him deplete the farm system but he will be a FA after 2015 and he will be another player looking for a long contract.  


Josh Hamilton makes sense because he only costs money and by the sounds of things the most teams are offering him is 3 or 4 years which is very doable for us.  Trade away Granderson for some prospects and re-sign Cano and this lineup is looking a lot healthier.

By 2015 the Yanks will hopefully be under 185mil mark and then they don't have to worry about that but I wasn't talking about just looking at Upton but Upton type talent level. Hamiliton you have to pay big money for right now, so how is signing Hamilton going to make more sense than Upton? While I'd like the idea of having him in the Yanks lineup, he still has the off the field issues plus he's going to cost the Yanks a pretty penny to sign him.

Because he is a great player that won't get a lot of years so it makes sense.  Trade Granderson and they are fine.  Yeah he has his of the field issues but he has been able to handle it so far and I am sure anywhere he signs with will have substance abuse crap in his contract just incase he does go off.

I'm thinking Ca$h has something more than mediocure in the works..When he's quiet like this, and we the fans know what we would like to see but are not seeing it, something breaks. I know a good portion of those reading this are not ca$h fans..I am a Ca$h fan. Not many GM's have his track record.



I forget who's signatures says something like - "Have faith in The Yankees"..I certainly do,

Fair enough and I'm sure that's part of the Yankees doing a background check on Hamilton and possibly getting create with a contract if they are serious about signing him. I guess we'll see what's going to happen soon enough.
