DateQuestionAnswer
2009-03-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chances the yankees sign Esteban German now that he's an FA?
(glenihan from nyc)
I think it's worth a try, as he's a more useful player than Angel Berroa (though not a shortstop, a strike against any U-guy). I'm troubled by the decay in his walk rate last year. (Steven Goldman)
2009-03-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Saw a suggestion somewhere that the Yankees might simply slide Cano across the diamond to third and then pick up a middle infielder, which seems like an easier option than finding a quality 3B. What do you think?
(Rob from Brighton)
The market does seem to contain more free talent (Esteban German) or free agents (Ray Durham, Mark Grudzielanek) among second basemen than third basemen, so if Cano could pull off the switch it might be worthwhile. That said, Cano's got enough to worry about with resuscitating his bat, so I'd rather see the Yanks try something else; I like Grudz or the Dodgers' Mark Loretta -- rendered redundant by the Orlando Hudson signing and Blake DeWitt's attempt to become a utilityman for the short term -- as backups who would have value even if A-Rod returns. (Jay Jaffe)
2009-02-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Mark Teahen at 2B - a worthwhile shot, or a waste of time?
(BL from Bozeman)
It can't hurt to try it, but I'm not optimistic about the outcome. Still, while they wait until they can find a dance partner to talk trade later this spring, it's worth exploring. I still have my hopes that Alberto Callaspo pans out, and it isn't like Esteban German getting the job would be an unhappy development. There's only one outright wrong answer, and its name is Bloomquist. (Christina Kahrl)
