this could have huge Fantasy Implications, not just for 8-rod if he is moved back to SS, but for who ever comes in to don the pinstripes.
Now, I was looking at the new lineup card provided to us by Geek, and its obvious it has to be a power bat cus he will need to break up some of those lefthanders so that means he will need to hit in the heart of the order. So we need
A) a RH bat,
B) one who can hit a ball above his thighs,
C) is not pretty,
D) and must score better than 17th in the MVP voting during his off years.
(C) is going to limit things a bit. I mean we can rule out Spiezio right now ..
but heres the lineupGeek wrote:
2--Jeter, (RH) SS
3--Abreu, (LH) RF
4--Giambi (LH)/Eduardo Perez (RH) DH
5--Matsui, (LH) LF
6--Posada, (RH) C
7--Cano, (LH) 2b
5. ????? According to Geek, the only possible suitor is the Cubs. Now I know it won't be the popular choice, but I am leaning towards Kerry Wood here, anybody else? ... 8-Rod for Wood, thoughts?
of course Kerry and Williams are both FA's, so Steinbrenner could just buy a Woody
So there you go.
Who is the New Yankee 1B/3B?
this could be a huge boost in somebodies value.
Aaron Boone is a FA. I imagine his stock should be bumped a tad, hes familar with the team and loved by all.
Well like you said, Big Stein can just buy Wood, so the trade would be for Prior I bet. As fas as 1B, I see a 3 year, $45M deal for Bagwell.
