Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

I don't think Hunter would be willing to switch to a corner outfield position. The first name that came to mind for me was Jay Payton, but with Thomas not hitting he may start playing more for the A's.

Hunter would play center and Damon would move to left. Damon has already said he'd move I believe.

I think Shannon Stewart right now is the most logical guy though and can probably be had cheaper.

You don't want Stewart. The combination of his rag-arm and Damon's wet-noodle would give you the weakest outfield arms in the history of the game.

Hunter playing center and Damon moving to left would be an excellent move IMO (I personally wouldn't be happy about Hunter going to NY, but that's irrelevant).

Not to mention Bernie, with Sheffield on the DL as well. Teams would be taking extra bases at will.

The other tough thing for the Yankees, is that Damon hurt himself a little bit on that Mirabelli catch. I have no doubt he'll play hurt, but that shoulder has hurt his production at the plate in the past.

Well Matsui was never known to have a strong arm either. We just need a guy to go out thier and catch the ball and fill some of Matsui's offensive voids. I just think Hunter would cost too much. But if the Twins really want to dump him then I'd be all for it. I'm just not all for overpaying for yes a suberb defensive outfielder but IMO a very overrated offensive player.

While Matsui isn't known for a strong arm, I don't think you truly comprehend how awful Stewart's arm is. It is TERRIBLE. It's quite possible that he has the weakest outfield arm in all of baseball.

He would, no question about that.

He's not overrated offensively, his offensive shortcomings are well documented at this point. He has made no improvement offensively over the years, which is disappointing given the amount of talent he has (and how much he has gotten paid). He has crazy bat speed (much like Sheffield) but absolutely no discipline. He is an underrated baserunner/basestealer though.

Re: The 2006 New York Yankees

Torri Hunter
Alfonso Soriano
Shannon Stewart


Those are the big three, it'd be very interesting if Soriano returned to pinstripes.

I would add Bobby Abreu to that mix. Buster Olney has been saying his name quite alot lately. I don't see how the Phils would trade one of their best players when they are in the NL East Race, but apparently hes due 30 mil for this year and next year.

Sori was one of my favorite players and he always said he wants to come back so I definetly wouldn't mind him. Although I haven't seen much of him in left this year i've heard he has gotten better. I'm not sure how much he will cost but hes a free agent after the year.
