His arm stinks, but can't be worse than Bernie's.
I just don't see very many CFers out there for NY, possibly Damon but I'd rather have Pierre anyways personally, but then again you can just sign Damon rather than having to trade for Pierre.
Just because his arm is an upgrade over Bernie's doesn't mean that's a plus. The Yankees aren't looking to go from an F centerfielder to a D centerfielder. That would serve no purpose.
Pierre is a fine player, but the Yankees do not need him. They don't need Damon either. He's similar to Pierre, with probably even more downside. I'd rather the Yankees take a scrub with solid defense to play there until they can either develop a young CF, or find the right person to take over long-term.
The options available to New York right now are not ideal. So rather than go out and take one anyway (what the Yankees usually do) they should wait it out and put crap out there for a year or two if need be...then find the right guy.
