The Hot Stove season has been rather cold, and not much has happened on the Yankee front, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things we can discuss, even if briefly.
The Yankees have contacted Cliff Lee’s agent, and the Red Sox have contacted Jayson Werth’s agent
Shocked. I’m absolutely SHOCKED by both of these developments. Yeah, this should come as no surprise to absolutely anyone. I’m much more confident in Lee ending up with the Yankees than I am in Werth ending up in Boston. Would Werth be a good fit? Sure, but like the Yankees, the Sox would have to move an outfielder first. I wonder if there are those who say they should trade J.D. Drew to make room for Werth just like some Yankee fans who say the same about Nick Swisher. I’m not sure where Werth ends up, but I don’t think it’s in the AL East.
Joe Morgan and Jon Miller are out on Sunday Night Baseball
I don’t like Miller as much as others do, but he’s certainly better than most. I’m very glad that Morgan is gone. His “analysis” was always very shallow and his unabashed hate for anything unfamiliar was incredibly off putting.
The Mets hired J.P. Riccardi and Paul DePodesta for the front office
Great moves by the Mets here. They’re building themselves a hell of a front office and should be in a position to improve the team. Of course, nothing is going to be overnight. The right pieces are in place, now they just have to make their moves (/loose chess analogy…I SUCK at chess).
Bud Selig still thinks Abner Doubleday invented baseball
I’ve got nothing here. This is just silly. JoePoz has a great breakdown here.
Three Yankee infielders won Gold Gloves
Robinson Cano? I’m cool with it. Mark Teixeira? Yep, fine with me. Derek Jeter? Absolutely not. 2009? Yeah, sure. He was great in the field in 2009. In 2010? Just, no. His range looked bad and his arm didn’t look nearly as strong as it used to be (which some scouts questioned anyway). At the same time, though, I can’t get too pissed about this. The Gold Glove is an total joke and has been since Rafael Palmeiro won the award in 1999 despite playing fewer than 30 games in the field.
This week has been quiet thus far, aside from a Jeter tidbit from yesterday. Someone needs to add fuel to this (not yet fired up) Hot Stove.
