In response to JimfromFlorida's comment:
I do not understand this.
He goes to NY knowing when ARod comes back he is on the bench or at best the DH and a part time 3B/1B
He is looking for playing time versus ARod. Teixera, and probably Andruw Jones ??.
Whereas if he went to Cleveland right now he'd be the starting first baseman and back with familar faces on that team and coaching.
I think and if so give him credit
if he's doing it for the action
it was said he missed the intensity while in chicago
for the same reasons
I could see swish taking less money to go to sox over clev
maybe we can trade them once arod gets back
watching swish in a sox uni will be just as bad 4 me
[/QUOTE] Hi Zac,
Good signing for NY.
Youk will man 3rd. base until July.
Rest on the bench for a couple of months.
And be rested come October when Arod stops hitting.
You really think when Arod comes back from hip surgery in July, or at all that the Yanks are gonna stick him back at 3B? If he comes back at all in 2013 he will be the NYY designated hitter. Youk will man 3B for the whole season, barring injury.
