i have noticed that for the longest time, that the yankees arent going out and getting quality players while they are still in thier prime..example i thought they should have tried for Ichiro when O'NIELL retired...they needed a leadoff hitter and right field would have been solidified for 7-8 years..I think if they need a catcher they should give this kid from COLORADO a shot wiiln rosario...YANKS have pitching to send that way and Girardi can work with him...he has a great bat...yanks cant afford to give up free outs this year..and the yankees veterans are a plus in developing young players confidence


They haven't done a whole lot for Nunez...




I will never understand the love affair people have with this guy. He is 25 years old and his best position is at D.H. Lets face facts the guy has 172 errors in 680 games in the minors that is a .940 fielding percentage. At the M.L. level its even worse he has a .926 fielding percentage. You can tolerate poor defense like that if the player is a Wade Boggs or Cano type hitter but Nunez is certainly not even close to that type of hitter.





I'm with you ... can't for the life of me understand why people are so high on an error-laden DH.




   Let me take a shot at explaining the fascination with Nunez...He is about all we got! There is nothing on the horizon for next year that is even worth discussing. So instead, we talk about Nunez.





I see, said the blind man. Wink

I am certainly not excited about our catching situation; however, I think Cervelli is being under rated. He's produced .271/.339/.353 in the majors.  When he got regular playing time his WAR was better than 1.  His defense seems to be described usually as around average.  At 26, he is likely to be a little better than his career numbers.  He definitely would not be one of the worst starters in the league if he became the everyday guy.  Sure he would be in the bottom third, but is that really going to kill us, especially when we might actually get a better than average young starter in Romine? 


I would much rather see the Yankees get a legitimate bat for the DH/backup outfield duties than overspend on another mediocre catcher.

Cervelli's caught stealing 20% is well below 27% league average.  Cervelli actually had a higher CS% in 2009 and the last two years have been a poor 14% CS.  A fast team can literally start the merry-go-round with Cervelli behind the plate.
