    Matt Thorton to the Yankees

    Report: Yankees sign Thornton for 2-yrs, $7MM

    The Yankees have agreed to a 2-year, $7 million deal with free agent lefty reliever Matt Thornton.

    Thorton, 37, is coming off a 3.74 ERA and 30/15 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings this past season between the White Sox and Red Sox. He's a cost-effective replacement for Boone Logan, who suckered the Rockies into paying him $16.5 million over three years. Thornton, at this point in his career, is a decent middle-inning relief option.

    We have pretty good numbers against Thornton.  Not too worried about him going to the Yankees.  

    Thornton appeared in 26 gms against the Sox and has pitched 24 innnigs allowing 25 hits, 12 earned runs and 15 walks while striking out 27 batters.  1.667 WHIP and Thornton was hit pretty hard at the Fenway and the Yankees stadium in his career.

    2 years 7 million? I'd be pretty upset if the Red Sox gave him that contract!

    Re: Matt Thorton to the Yankees

    No problem with Thornton going anywhere else.  In fact, good for him that he got a two year deal somewhere.

    After some good years earlier in his career, he is fast becoming a journeyman, bullpen lefty who may have a good year left so that one good year could be next season in NY or perhaps in another year down the road.

    He was not worth a 7M two year contract to the Sox as they have better and cheaper lefty relievers already on their roster.

    because it is funny.  your ownership tells you one thing and then does the complete opposite.  they spending obscene money but let the best position playerin recent history to wear pinstripes walk out the door.  no luxury tax reset for you!!!

    The Yankees, who have fielded a payroll in excess of $195 million for nine consecutive years, would like to keep their payroll for next season below $189 million, which would keep them under the luxury tax and reset their tax rate to the lowest level so that they'd pay less in taxes if they exceed the threshold in future years.

    Not only are they not going to be under the 189 threshold , but they are going to be the oldest team in MLB! Ellsbury was their youngest key addition and he will be 31 this year!!! This 70 win team should keep the Yankees fans happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    but that's what we all expect from a guy called N C Slash

     

     

      they spending obscene money but let the best position playerin recent history to wear pinstripes walk out the door. 

    U still playing that card

    we both know if nyy signed cano the parrots would be out in full force

    speaking of which how much did their age hurt the yanks last yr

     

    how did being to old hurt these old timers last yr when they were injured

     


    Andrew Marchand 2m
    Michael Pineda only turns 25 next month. Manny Banuelos is just 22. Those two are probably more important than any signings this offseason

    The yankees were far better when they were developing their own players. Since they have been spending crazy they have won a single series. Which model works better?

    He wasn't a consistent Strike thrower. Thats my only beef, he still has the arm, but he'll put people on base. Not good for a Reliever.

    I realize that Yankee fans are not upset about going over the luxury tax limit, but how many are jumping for joy about the Matt Thornton signing?

    Maybe it really doesn't matter but I find it strange and perilous to continually sign old players.... one after another. 

    They are building a bridge to knowhere.
