Maybe that's what he's trying to do. :-D I've always thought Cashman was the most overrated GM in baseball, if not all sport. Any accolades are too much for him IMO.

ESPN 1050 (NY) is reporting both deals (Womack, Wright) are done.

I was really liking Wright this year, but how will pitching for the Yanks affect him?

I don't know why you're all so worked up about Womack. He's got more upside than Cairo. He's a better fielder, is MUCH MUCH faster, and he had a good year last year in front of St. Louis's sluggers. I think he'll do a decent job.

I'm not thrilled about Wright. I don't know much about him, how good is he? Does anyone (Braves/Indians fans) know if he can succeed in the Bronx?

Womack is 35 how much upside can he have? :-D

I have to hear Cashman on this these. These should go a long way towards not winning next year.

Unless Womack is being paid 2M to backup Cairo and take Wilson's job, it has to be one of the dumber moves he has made. Then again, this clown gave Heredia a two year deal last year, signed Hitchcock and Vazquez, traded for Witasik...Acevedo...Gabe White, Weaver, RonDL, Hammond, ...

Cairo wasn't offered arbitration so it'd be a stretch for the Yankees to resign him. He'll be gone by then.

its an ok deal

Postby Ballwreckers » Wed Dec 08, 2004 1:20 am

These are not your normal yankee like deals if I say so myself. If they pick up Beltran, would womack still bat near the top of the order?

Womack
Beltran
Jeter
A-Rod
Sheff
Matsui
Posada
Williams
Martinez?

OR


Jeter
Beltran
A-Rod
Sheff
Matsui
Posada
Williams
Martinez?
Womack

What he hit 2 years ago?....220 something...no power...K's a lot...does not walk much...just great. A perfect leadoff man.

A guy with an OPS that in a good year barely makes 700.


No Power--- Hmm, yeah we really needed a power 2nd baseman. A-Rod, Sheffield, Matsui, Posada and potentially Beltran is just not enough.

K's alot--- 60-80 times. It's not great but it's not Soriano-esque either.

Batted .220 2 years ago--- He played for 3 teams, and only played about 100 total games.

I'm not saying he's some all-star player, but on the Yankees, they don't need one. I'm sick of people who think the Yankees need to buy guys like Kent or Soriano. I'm perfectly happy with Womack or Cairo there. The last thing we need is another ego.

Amazinz- I'm not saying Womack nessicarily has upside, but him at his best is better than Cairo at his best.
