part 2 of a 2 part series BiLLaBaLLa's 2008 Yankees


BiLLyBaLLa's 2008 YANKEES

Part 2 was prepared prior to the fiasco of A-Rodiculous returning. With the new addition of the old subtractions inevitable return. Part 2 has now been altered. Part 2 is still based on trading some younger players for a Johan Santana and Miguel Cabrera.








Remember, I was in favor of trading none of our prospects in part #1~>

..............and rebuilding with what we have and waiting for the big 2009 class. Now that A-Rod is back our needs may have changed dramatically. The prefix of trading for a Miguel Cabrera prior to A-Rods return was on one condition and that is that he would have to agree on moving to 1st base and also on a new contract especially when giving up young players.







Well my stance hasn't changed but our needs have. Prior I was reluctingly willing to part with a Ian Kennedy, Russ Olendorf, and Melky to bring in Cabrera which is what it would take to get him. Now that has changed. It sounds like Cabrera is probably going to either the Angels or Dodgers which saves us from trading any of these prospects which is what I wanted. Maybe wherever he winds up he will refuse to sign and go the free agent path in 2009 and than we can bring him in to play 1base. Giambi and Farnsworth will be forgotten headaches by than and Damon and Matsui whom I'm not opposed to trading, will have one more year left.






The big story now is that of Johan Santana. My sources and they are credible at the very least are stating the Yankees and Twins have talked and exchanged names to make a trade happen. The Twins are reluctant to trade him yet based on the fact that they now have a new stadium and they want him starting in the new stadium with hopes to resign him. There fan base would be up in arms if they traded him.











So in order to get him now your gonna have to blow away the Twins with an offer. The rumor is that Cano will have to be involved in the trade just to start it. My feelings based on multiple sources is that Melky and 1 of the big 3 along with a top level prospect would also have to be involved.







Well you know as well as I do that the Yankees cannot give up Cano, Melk, IPK, and a (Tabata or Betances) for Santana.








My initial proposal once again prior to the A-Rod circus returning was to trade Cano, Melk, Steven White, and a Humberto Sanchez to obtain Santana.






Remember we are getting one of the top 3 pitchers in baseball that is in his prime and throws LEFTY








! I do not want to part with any prospects but trading these 3 for Santana would make the Yankees instantaneously stronger. Where losing 2 young starting position players (in Cano's case a star in the making) and 2 unknow minor league pitchers.





We now open up 2nd base for Jeter ............to begin the rest of his career defending which is what I stressed in part 1 anyhow............ We than give Brett Gardner or Austin Jackson ( the 2 closest MLB ready players) a shot to start in CF thus replacing Melky and keeping the team infused with youngsters.











In Brett Gardner's case your adding a player that can steal you 40 bases, is an above avg fielder who will get better, has an above avg arm, and will slap the ball to all fields with little power. These are the type of players that we need to help create excitement in this lineup with the addition of speed. These are the type of players that Girardi will desire in order to help rid this team of the Joe Torre base to base offense that shuts down in the playoffs.








One of these 2 will be ready to make the jump and both are plus defenders. At the very worse they may not add much offensively but with this lineup I'm sure as the year progresses they will fit in like a Dustin Pedroia did. The shortstop can be filled by Alberto Gonzalez (until Carmine Agnello is ready) whom will be an upgrade defensively with scouts saying he has the potential to be a gold glover. He may not hit better than .250 with 5 homeruns and 40 RBI's but defensively our team has improved behind this new starting rotation that would be second to none.














Our new rotation will be Santana, Wang, Petite, Hughes, and Chamberlain. Wow! Give them some defense and we have the team to beat once again.
