Ditto - even though it not hard to be a Yankee fan. I really love the nostagia, tradition and history of the game. I guess you can say that deep down I'm a traditionalist. :-D

Why do we need another 20 homerun, .260 hitter in the lineup?

I'd rather have a 3 homerun, .315 hitter with a great OBP who can bat ahead of Jeter-ARod-Sheff-Matsui-etc.

Pierre is a much better fit in New York.

I don't see the Yanks going with Womack and Pierre batiing 9th and 1st. These players won't drive in runs and in the AL you need run producers especially in the AL east. The last time they went with all speed or slap happy hitters they lost. How soon you forget the recent debacle with Cairo and Wilson batting 8th and 9th? Gee those guys drove in alot of runs didn't they. Pierre is a better hitter but the point is made. Womack and Pierre will not drive in 80 runs and will be lucky if they reach 60. Now ponder this if Williams and Martinez get on base and they are facing Clement or Schilling do you think these batters have a chance of scoring when Womack and Pierre are next at bat nope. By the time Jeter is up there would be 2 outs or inning over. Or ponder man on 2nd 1 out Martinez up and Womack and Pierre up next do you pitch to Tino or go after Womack and Pierre. Tino gets passed and you go after the slap happy guys. In both scenarios rally killed.

This looks better

1. Damon
2. Jeter
3. Rodriguez
4. Matsui
5. Sheffield
6. Posada
7. Giambi/Williams
8. Martinez
9. Womack

I wouldn't mind Damon either. He's a stereotypical leadoff hitter. He or Pierre I'd be thrilled with. Not Torii Hunter. :-t

Hunter is not a bad ballplayer and he hasn't peaked yet. Keep in mind Shef is no spring chicken and within a few years both he and Bernie will prob be gone.

This could be another NY media hype story but there was talk I think in the Post that the Yanks are considering making a play for Helton before he wastes away in Colorado. Now I wouldn't mind a Damon, Helton and Hunter replacement over Bernie, Shef and Giambi. And then there's the possibility of Sheets replacing Brown. ;-D :-) :-) :-)

Ok fresh off the press from the NY Post....how about Andrew Jones in center through a trade? Overall a better player than Hunter, Damon and Pierre. Would fit in well in center defensively and in the lineup offensively in the 6 or 7 hole. I think he's only 28 which is also a plus.

Damon/Pierre >>> Jones/Hunter

Also, I don't want Helton. We don't need to throw away money on un-needed superstars.

Pierre is not eligible for free agency until after the 2006 season, not this year. His contract will expire but he is still bound by arbitration. He will very likely be trade bait but NY is an unlikely destination via trade.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
