That would be perfect. Matsui is a natural RF. Giles has a lil speed and has played CF before for his prior teams. Since LF is almost like a CF at Yankee Stadium, Giles would be the perfect LF.

It would shape up like this

LF Giles
CF Rowand
RF Matsui

Looks real good!

Giles plays right in Petco. Matsui is already a leftfielder. You might as well just keep Hideki in left and keep Giles in right. No use switching them at this point.

And I'd love that outfield, but it's unfortunate that crybaby Sheffield won't allow himself to be traded. :-t

Oooh how i'd love to have that Outfield, but like someone said Sheff would never allow the trade that would be needed to make that happen. Also I really hope they don't go for Damon. The last thing the Yanks need to do is get another older player who isn't that great of a defender. I would prefer them get someone who they just send out there to play great CF and hit's 9th in the order over a big bat that won't be much better then Bernie.

I too would be quite happy to have Bubba play fulltime next year. I think given a full season his offensive numbers would work out just fine (at least as good as bernie's this year) and he can cover much more ground out there.

Agreed, somewhat. He fills their defensive needs well enough, and might not hurt them offensively any more than Bernie did. At the same time, defensive talent aside, do we really want another year with a CFer with a sub-.700 OPS? Another advantage is his price, I think he's making league minimum plus the cost of a bag of pretzels. If they wanted to give him a chance, I couldn't complain (although I cringe watching that uppercut swing, looks like he's TRYING to strike out). But they couldn't really give him the job without having a backup plan in place, and you can't let those hopes ride on Kevin Thompson just yet.

Some Yankee scouts feel that free agent Johnny Damon is no longer a good defensive center fielder and not worth the $50 million dollar price tag he will be asking for.
The Twins' Torii Hunter is probably number one on their trade list, but its debatable whether Minnesota would actually part with him. Some other trade options could be the Marlins' Juan Pierre, Angels' Steve Finley and Dodgers' Milton Bradley. Oct. 20 - 10:15 am et

Thank the lord. As everyone knows, I've been on the no-Damon horse for a long time now.

Absolutely no on that racist, Milton Bradley :-t He's the absolute last thing they need. :-t

Finley's too old :-t

Pierre simply sucks for his price :-t

Hunter though ;-D

Yeah, I meant good news that they seem to be passing on Damon. The rest of those guys suck though, save Hunter.

Giles doesn't play CF. :-?

I'd hardly call 15 starts there in 2 years worthy of playing CF.

Giles played right-field in San Diego because it's so humongous; his defense was best utilized in right, especially seeing as Payton and Roberts could man center fine. Giles can play center, though, no problem. He looked great in right this past season.
