This feels like a deal that'll keep going on-ward into Spring Training. Now that his hip issue has been revealed, every team is going to do the same as the Red Sox, Napoli has basically no leverage what-so-ever here.

A catcher with a bad hip is like a pitcher with a bad shoulder...big trouble.  Using Napoli as a DH is dangerous as it almost necessitates carrying 3 catchers.

Why aren't the Yankees taking advantage of this?  Napoli is a better catcher than what we have.

Umm how is that wrong?  I'm sorry when did Chris Stewart or Cervilli become 20+ home run guys?  His best month was September and it was substantially better than the rest of his months so his hip was probably starting to feel better in September assuming it was bothering him throughout 2012.  And the offseason will can only be helping him with his recovery.  If the Yankees can get him cheap then they have nothing to lose.


Or do you prefer to have a .200 hiter with no power and no threat whatsoever starting for us, cause that's what Stewart is.

I dont prefer having a first baseman as a catcher either. Napoli was not signed to be Bostons catcher and he wont be signed to be the Yankees either. I mean come on be serious do you see the Yankees spending a minumum of 13 million for a bad catcher with a significant injury history who is even more of a risk now with a bad hip.

I just don't see Yankees letting Martin walk only to sign Napoli for 13MM.  That's really crazy....

Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

Yankees didn't re-sign Martin because he wanted a multi-year deal and got one from the Pirates.  If the Yankees can get Napoli for 1 year I see them at least looking into it.

He wasn't signed to be Boston's catcher because they already have Salty.  And like I said if they can get him cheaply they should go for it.  He would add a ton of depth to the lineup, the guy his .320 in 2011.  Also we have no idea his significant the hip injury is, if it was as serious as Boston is making it out to be he would of had surgery, imo it's just something Boston is using against Napoli to lower the price.  


Also like I said only if the Yanks can get him cheap do I think they shouldn't sign him.  I don't see anything wrong with offering him 1 year 5-10 mill.  It still keeps them in line for the 2014 budget.
