    I have no problem with Youk on the Yankees. He didn't go there like Damon who took the offer without allowing the Sox a chance to match his offer. And he was booted off the Sox by a completely mad Valentine. He's free to do whatever is best for him as far as I'm concerned.

    I do believe part of the Yankees interest is just signing ex-Sox players to annoy the Sox, and probably get a little inside info on the players. I hope Youk doesn't go down that road as I'm sure the team didn't want him gone, and for sure the fans didn't want him gone. I believe Youk will always be good with Boston for what's he meant to the fans here, and will not be booed at the games. He'll be welcomed as he should be since we all had to endure the Valentine         storm.

    By the way - Red Sox always end up with the Yankees.  But it never ever goes the other way - yankees never become red sox (except scrub yankees).

    the last Yankee to go to Boston that was any good was Mike Torres.

    Mark Melancon.

                   "Mark Melancon"

    WOW. You actually have the nuts to bring up another one of the yankee prospects you pegged as a "can't miss future star". I believe you had Melancon pegged as "Mo's replacement".

    Too funny Pops.

    [/QUOTE]


    Last time I checked Mark Melancon came up throught the yankee farm system and is now with the Red Sox which makes him a former Yankee.

          Pop's, that's exactly what I said. You have lost it.

         What part of future stardom you predicted for a another yankee prospect who has failed don't you understand?

    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. 

    [/QUOTE]


    JIM

    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

    maybe worse

    [/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.

    [/QUOTE]


    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.

    [/QUOTE]

          DH's are paid to hit.

         Not sure Arod's updated resume covers that area.

         You bring up a good point nevertheless.

    Seems like yesterday when Austin Jackson was at AAA and you were ragging on him like you are now on Montero.

                        I said the Yankees gave up too much in that trade.

    That never happened.

    I did point out the reasons Aceves was offered a minor league contract by the Yankees before he signed with the Sox.

    He couldn't be counted on down the stretch the season prior because of his back problems, he refused surgery to fix the problem in the off-season (which the Yankees recommended) and then broke his shoulder on a bike mishap.

    I questioned whether or not he could hold up pitching as often as he did for the Sox as did countless others because of previous back issues.

    Points:

    Chavez wanted to play closer to home. NY paid Youk a tad too much, but it is a one year deal which keeps them on pace for their 2014 payroll mandate. I think once A-Rod comes back, then they flip flop both players at position and DH.

    My Yankees are trying to rebuild while remaining competitive (not sure if this is doable). The higher prospects in the farm system have not panned out as expected, so they had little choice here. They have already decided that they will go with an unproven behind the plate. Couldn't do that at 3rd as well.

    Not the biggest fan of Youk, but will certainly root for him. I was never the biggest proponent of Youk moving to 3rd when the Sox did so. Hopefully he is 100% going into 2013 and can give NY some decent production.

    As for Swish playing for the Sox - I can see it. Always liked him, but not when a clutch hit was needed, especially in October.

    Not the biggest fan of Youk, but will certainly root for him. I was never the biggest proponent of Youk moving to 3rd when the Sox did so. Hopefully he is 100% going into 2013 and can give NY some decent production.

    As for Swish playing for the Sox - I can see it. Always liked him, but not when a clutch hit was needed, especially in October.

    Good player, good attitude, terrible in the PS. Was actually a reclamation project when they got him from the WS (Hit 219 the yr before, in a big time hitters park). He also wants a Werth type deal, and he's not 'worth it' given the above. Albeit more talented, ditto Hamilton.

    The only thing I fear is Youk getting worse, hitting around or below the Mendoza line; his bat speed last yr is worrisome. Once a gold glover at 1st base, his defense is worse too. And he's more injury prone. Perhaps if he plays 100-120 games that would help.

    By signing Youkilis, the Yankees got "younger".   LOL
