    Steve, how can you refer the the Rays' offense as no more than satisfactory when, as of now, they are second in the majors in runs per game?

    Has anyone ever taken the time to compile the team the Yankees could have, had they not traded away certain players over the years? This is a rundown of would-be, could-be Yankees, all from the minor league system: C: Posada, Cervelli 2B: Cano SS: Jeter LF: Soriano CF: Gardner RF: Jackson SP: Pettite, Hughes, Lilly RP: Robertson, Chamberlain, Aceves, Rivera Here we have the bare bones of a pretty low-cost team that would easily allow for the signing of a Sabathia here and a Texeira there without being more than three or four times the payroll of small-market teams. Also, consider the two absences at the corner positions, Nick Johnson, who could have been a great first basemen if not for all the injuries (and whom the Yankees still thought worth the risk of bringing back), and Mike Lowell, a third baseman past his prime but who would still make a nice role-player. Just a thought. Nobody ever seems to bring this up.

    Cliff Corcoran calls it the Jegg Weaver syndrome. Can't we have a video of that Game 4 of the 2003 World Series with Joe Torre allowing Jeff Weaver to give up an extra inning game losing HR to Alex Gonzalez with Mariano Rivera sitting in the bullpen and have Joe Girardi see it a thousand times? Not sure about who was facing who, I'm OK with Joba and Robertson and maybe a very suitable lefty-lefty situation to have Marte but even Chan Ho Park before Mo was very stupid enough.

    What do you think about the possibility of picking up Ty Wigginton from Baltimore? Intradivision trades might be uncommon, but Baltimore's so far out of it that it wouldn't matter. Wigginton also can play just about anywhere (I don't think the Yankees would use him at second base except in an emergency, but Wigginton has played there), backing up Tex, ARod and appearing at DH. And if Marcus Thames can play Right Field, Wigginton can play left. Would that work?

    Steve, I think that's an interesting purposal but given the way the Yankee roster is setup, is probably one they should reframe from unless they can somehow Nick Swisher him from the Brewers (almost impossible IMHO) The Yankee fielding setup is a farily simple one, tons of guys are locked up forever and they're also good enough to justify those lockups. but looking forward 2 or 3 year, the need of the OF is questionable, as you pointed out, if Gardner remains around his current production level then Crawford is only a marginal upgrade at best, and one that would come with a much higher price tag. While Werth and Crawford might be an upgrade, they're not really the type of guys the Yankees should actively be seeking to lock up forever, aka guys who look like hall of famer calibler players. while Crawford's chances actually isn't terrible for the HOF (based on the merit of him raking up hits at a pretty high rate ) it seems unlikely that a player who appear to be peaking as a low to mid .800ish OPS guy playing the corner OF can continue his carere into his late 30s . If the Yankees are looking for guys to trade and given the candidates likely to be avalible in the next few years, it seems to be a abosalute no brainer that the #1 target by far is Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez would solve one of the most glaring potential franchise sinking hole going foward. which is obviously what to do after Jeter can play ( can play SS especially) . Given that you could always stash Ramirez in LF or DH while slowly working on transferring Jeter out of SS. this seem like the abosalute trade the Yankees should and must make going foward. so saving their chips for that would be wise.

    Steve: I am of and from this period, and nothing could by more right relative to Ford and Stengel. The old man, and he was probably yournger than I am, had a humanistic insight into the game. He did more than just save Ford. He sort of saved us all, . Further, you could argue, and it might be a good one, that he was a quintesential American hero. Good thing to be on May 30th. Thanks for writing. Barry
