nah the yankees already have enough power in that lineup. they need people that can get on base in front of the sluggers. plus their top talent is going to be their future first baseman, Eric Duncan. if giambi doesnt pan out, duncan will get a shot before any 1b FAs are signed.
Duncan's last two years in the minors:
2004 A Tampa - 51 G, 173 AB, 4 HR, 26 RBI, .254/.366/.462.828
2004 A Battle Creek - 78 G, 288 AB, 12 HR, 57 RBI, .260/.351/.479/830
2005 AA Trenton 126 G, 451 AB, 19 HR, 61 RBI, .235/.328/.408/.736
I wouldn't call that top talent... Good luck with Duncan being the "future" at first base
