2. Sign Carl Pavano or Matt Clement. Get a young arm in here, and try to keep Pavano away from Boston if possible. With Vazzy gone, we need some youth in the rotation.

3. Only dump Brown if you get something worthwhile. If you have to pay his entire contract or aren't getting anything worthy, just hold onto him and used him in the back of the rotation.

4. Sign Tino Martinez. Bring back some of the old great clubhouse chemistry. Let him play 1B everyday with Giambi on the bench or DH.

5. Sign Beltran. Not very important but it could be a valuable move considering Bernie is reaching the end of his rope. This is the best young CF in the game, and he's only available now. Bring him in and let Bernie DH and play in right field once in a while.

6. Resign Ruben Sierra, Tanyon Sturtze. These two were very important to the success of the Yanks last year. Sierra is a dominant threat off the bench and as a DH. He can break a game open. Sturtze did well as a long reliever and he could spot start in case of injury.

7. Get some roleplayers as backups. Bring in some guys like Cairo. Pokey Reese might be one to play utility. I'm not sure who else is out there, but get some guys who could be valuable (such as Reese, Dave Roberts, Mienkatwitz were for Boston).

That's what I'd do, anyway.

Either Way, the Spankees WIll not beat the RedSox, its Fate....the more they spend, they won't WIN!

skipping beltran will give the yankees a clear shot at juan pierre next year. he's a great player at a fraction of the cost. GREAT roleplayer.

Forget Pierre. Tori Hunter is the man for the Yanks. A 5 tool player to bat in the 6 hole.

Hunter? Pierre is much better and fills more of the Yankees needs.

Pierre has lost some on his speed and has absolutely no power. Since they have Womack already I really don't think they'll add another Womack clone. One scrappy hitter is enough for the Yanks. Now Hunter is just the best fielding CF in the AL. His defense is awesome and by signing him they will drastically improve their corner OFs. This will make the pitchers happy. Bernie lets way too many balls fall now that he's on the downside. Hunter has 20-30 HR power and he still hasn;t reached his peak. On the Yanks he'll be a 290 100 runs 100 RBIs 20 steal guy and he'll cost half the money than Beltran. The other option is Damon who George really likes alot. :-)

Problem is that Hunter is signed through 2006 with an option for 2007. I doubt George will put up with Bernie's defense until then.

I think Pierre would be a great fit for them. He plays great defense and would be the ideal leadoff hitter letting Jeter move down to 2nd in the order. How is Pierre a Womack clone? His career OBP is .361. Womack's best OBP is .349.

What I meant by clone is 2 no power speed players. It might be a good fit but I really don;t think George will go with 2 speedsters with no power in the AL East. In fact George won't with Boston's lineup being the strongest in baseball right now. If they won't put Womack leadoff right now what will change if they get Pierre? The Yanks will never carry a lineup of Womack 9th and Pierre leadoff. It weakens the lineup too much to have 2 scrappy hitters together and I really can't see Womack moving up to 8th nor do I see Jeter sandwiched between 2 scrappy hitters. Whoever plays center next year will have a lil pop in the bat. The Yanks will make a play for Damon long before Pierre. Damon would hit leadoff followed by Jeter, Arod and Matsui. Now if they get Pierre where are they going to bat Womack?

Pierre actually gets on base a decent amount of the time. That is all you really want out of your leadoff hitter anyway. Power is nice but the lineup already has a ton of power.

This is true but in the Yankee univerese you never have enough of anything (no pun intended here). Because of the fact that the rivalry with the Bosox has gotten red hot over the last 3 years George will go to all extremes to ensure that the Yanks are in a position to beat the Sox. Plus keep in mind alot of the Yanks are aging and have at most 3 more years left. Are you a Yankee fan or a fan of this great American game? :-)
