Winn to Yankees?

Postby BillyMafia » Wed Jul 20, 2005 4:58 pm

According to the Seattle Times, the Yankees have resumed their interest in Randy Winn.
With the way New York's center fielders have played lately, Winn's value just keeps going up. ''I don't know a thing,'' Winn said. ''There's nothing you can do about it anyway. My job is to play the best I can, and whatever happens, happens.'' Jul. 20 - 10:35 am et

If traded, does he play full-time or platoon?

that would be a terrible move for the yankees. It may be a moderate upgrade defensively but Winn's batting #s are barely better then Williams'. They can do better, I'd rather see them acquire a defensive genius that bats .100 then Winn.

I agree. I would take Winn at this point (that Melky experiment went sour :-B ) only if the cost was minimal. Everyone knows the Yanks are desperate so Seatle will ask for much more than Winn is worth.

You Yankee fans think that Bernie Williams is all that. Randy Winn is a very solid CF who knows how to catch a ball, which Bernie does not. Winn is a good baserunner and a solid .270 hitter. Bernie, hitting at a staggering .245 clip is done. If the NYY can get Winn from Seattle in a fair deal, then they should do it.

Bernie has no problem catching the ball, he has a terrible arm and always has. Obviously Bernie is not the great player he used to be but acquiring Winn would only be a slight upgrade.

I'd much rather see them pay a decent price for Griffey ( i know they would ask a lot and clearly giving up Cano is NOT an option but if some magic can be worked out im all for it) and take their chances with his injuries. He looks to have put the injury riddled years behind him (knock on wood) but we'll see what happens, change is needed and is imminent.
