Womack's not a bad player, but I wouldn't have given him two years. I think Cairo is just as good, so unless they got a heck of a discount on Womack, it will probably fall into the "mistake" category IMO.
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.
