Since he's still proving he's made of glass, it's time to cut him loose. We have Miranda rotting away in SWB and is well capable of filling in for Tex. That DH spot should be reserved for our old guys, anyway.

 

Another thing, get someone up here who can spell Gardy once in awhile. That dude comes up lame, we're f'ked.

 

Might want to put Posada on the DL and bring up Romine. I don't care how young Cervelli is. Playing the same catcher every day is asking for trouble.

Not too bad. Kind of an automatic out, but he hit a big homer the other day. He's not as good a fielder as I remember from when he played for whoever.

Seattle. He covers ground, played an excellent right field in SF, toughest right field in the majors- but he has a noodle arm.

Nick was not hurting the team. He got on base 38 percent of the time in the number 2 hole... I'd like to see Miranda or anyone else who replaces him do that.

He's hurting the team when you can DH Arod, Jeter, or Posada, all of which (whom) have high OBP's and can play a position without breaking.

 

I swear, if George was younger, Cashman would have a size nine footprint on his ass for the deals he pulled off this winter.

I don't understand. You're saying you can DH those players and thats why NJ is hurting the team, but NJ is a hell of a lot better than Pena or Cervelli, who you'd have to play in the field at that point.

First of all, no one's better than Cervelli at this point. He's been super clutch, and the pitchers love him. Second, although you don't want to lose Jeter's, Arod's or Posada's bats from the line up, they are over the hill age wise. They can no longer take the grind every day. Posada particularly is becoming a hindrance behind the plate. You can also rest some of the younger guys, too, since they're more apt to break down mentally.

Yeah, I see what your saying but its waaaaay too much of a hit to have to play Cervelli and Pena on a regular basis while having "shifting" DH spot for aging players. Both are good bench players, but shouldn't get that many ABs in a season. Why cut Johnson loose? When he's healthy he is light-years better than Cervelli or Pena over the course of a full season.

In a perfect world, Nick Johnson will get healthy, Curtis Granderson will come back and play well and Vazquez will start pitching better...THEN, Casman will call Milwaukee and offer the three of those guys(plus eat some of Grandersons salary) for Prince Fielder ANd slide Ace into the 5th starter spot and bring up Melancon for good.
