Palmeiro to the Bronx?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Gang Green » Mon Dec 08, 2003 11:00 pm

This is mere speculation on my part about Palmeiro. However, there are people on NY talk radio who work for the Yankees. So far, everything they have predicted since the end of the World Series has come to fruition. From Sheffield to re-signing Heredia. Of course, they have also said as of a few days ago that resigning Pettitte is about a 50/50 proposition. That I'll admit scares the daylights out of me. With Colon looking like he's going to the Angels, the Yanks would be out of luck as far as another top of the line starter.

With Colon signing with the Angels, the Yanks would be almost forced to give Pettite the pay increase he wants and sign him.

Alright so now that prick George is gonna throw another say 8 mill at Palmeiro. I am sick of it, it's time for a cap, you can quote me on this, 5 years down the road this is remembered as offseason the yanks and red sox ruined baseball. i love to game so much, which why it hurts so much that it is going down the tubes.

from MLB.com

Dec. 7 -- The Yankees extended an arbitration offer to Pettitte. The Yankees and Astros remain the leading candidates to secure his services. Houston discussed a three-year, $30 million offer with the veteran left-hander last week during a face-to-face meeting at Minute Maid Park, but the Yankees are reportedly considering a four-year offer worth approximately $50 million.

Thank you. :-)

I'm going to put this up again since it seems that it got overlooked:

Not exactly a bench warmer or a guy who can't hit.

Mad, I know he's reliable, but I would be very pleased if the Yankees signed a hitter on the slide, who just hit .260 (.273, .273, .288 in prior years). I hope they offer him a five year deal.
I'm back. Sorta.

i never said palmeiro wasnt reliable .. im just sayin from a yankee standpoint they dont need all the offense they can sacrifice a little offense and get travis lee who is better defensively cheaper and not a bum offensively

Raffy's number's may be on the slide, but even if he hit .255 with 35 hr's, he's going to be hitting 7th or 8th in the Yankee lineup. Not too shabby numbers from the bottom of the order.
Also, Giambi's numbers are much more impressive when he plays first base as opposed to being DH. Over the past 3 seasons, he has a little over 1000 AB's when he's the first baseman with a batting avg. of .327. He has 500 AB's over the past 3 years as DH and his average is .252. Giambi also has been very vocal about how his head is much more "in the game" if he is playing in the field. If he stays healthy, most of his AB's will come as the 1B. Which means, the guys that you bring in to play first base will/should see significant time at DH. Palmeiro's power numbers are much more prototypical of a DH's production than anybody else that's out there.

It could be a combination of his head being in the game, and the fact that when he plays DH, he's most likely injured. Being DH probably isn't the cause, but rather the effect.
