The more I think about it, an OF of Soriano, Choo, and Curtis wouldnt be too tough to take. We'll know in a couple of hours, if he hasnt already declined/accepted the QO. 




As of this time, I know that Granderson has rejected the Yankees' QO.


Say, if the Yankees do acquire Shoo then there would be absolutely NO NEED for Curtis Granderson. All Granderson has over Shoo are Homerun and RBI numbers. Those are stats that went dramatically up ever since Grandy became a Yankee in 2010. Prior to 2010, when Granderson was a Tiger, his power numbers were not so much better than Shoo's are at this time. 


I know the argument about Granderson....that his power numbers are somewhat comparable on the road then they were at home, in Yankee Stadium. However, logically thinking, when a hitter hits a certain way for 81 games in stadium (Yankee Stadium)...wouldn't that technique carry over for the 81 games in other stadiums? 


The point is this:


Shin-Soo Choo might not have the big power numbers that Grandy has, but I am willing to bet that if he becomes a Yankee....he can get it. Now with Kevin Long back on board.........hmmmm........I think ya know what I mean.


All in all, if I had a choice between Choo or Grandy....I'd be pick Choo. He is an .OBP machine, hits for modest homerun total, and has a very good batting average......ALL THAT without the short porch in Yankee Stadium Right Field.




Two down and one to go.  Just a question ...do we get a draft pick if Kuroda heads back to Japan?


No surprise.....offically...



Source: Robinson Cano has turned down the Yankees' qualifying offer as expected. He is now officially a free agent.

Yeah all listed will have till next Monday to make decisions to stay or go....





Hold on ... didn't they say they were going to make him a solid offer?




Offer or otherwise, Cano has consistently said, he wants to test the free agent market.  He'll see what the market bears priority to Yankees matching it. Yankees should learn from previous mistakes in regards to bidding against them self.  Lets see who will be knocking....





If he's not interested in remaining a Yankee after coming up through the system, then I don't care if he walks.




100% sure that wasn't your opinion when players like Mo, Jeter and Posada tested FA.




The name Cano should not even be whispered along with those names!




I am not comparing them as players I am saying like those I mentioned Cano is testing the FA market.  


Was Mo (your favorite Yankee) not interested in remaining a Yankee when he became a free agent?  Was Jeter?  Was Jorge?  You can't knock Cano for it and then then exempt the others because they are fan favorites.  Every players wants the most they can get.  Jeter certainly wouldn't be getting $14 mill anywhere else nor does he deserve $14 mill for the 2014 season, you would think he would do the Yanks a favor but no.  But you don't see me throwing that at him.


And like I've said in past threads if the Yanks got rid of that silly rule that they don't extend players then they wouldn't be in this mess.  Yeah they threw an offer out at Cano in the spring but that's laughable to think the Cano would accept that when he only has to wait a year and likely get more money.  Yankees need to show respect to their home grown talent and then they would do the same.

Robbie, we've had this discussions about Cano too many times for me to count; sorry, but I'm just not getting into another one.

Why do you consider pointing out facts arguing?  I'm not being nasty I am just pointing out you should be fair.  When the Yankee organization wants to play hard ball this is what they are going to get.

As reported......
The Nationals are interested in free agent southpaw Boone Logan, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports.  Logan posted strong numbers out of the Yankees bullpen over the last four seasons and is expected to fully recover from recent surgery to remove a bone spur from his throwing elbow.

Yankees should keep Logan, not like the Nats would give up much for him.

I hope Yankees work out a deal to retain Logan.

I am fair ... Jeter, Mo, Jorge ... none of these players had an issue with giving the team everything they had to give ... Cano does ... you know how I feel about his lack of hustle ... we don't have to rehash that again.  Honestly Robbie, us discussing Cano is just so redundant ... so that's why I would rather not ... we don't get anywhere ... all we do is consistently rehash our same feelings about him ... mine are never going to change unless HE CHANGES ... and yours are never going to change.
