    NYT had a bit where its like 3 of the 5 leading catcher prospects are yankees so it isn't like they are now FUBAR at the position. Now, when it comes to A-Rod... good lord are they stuck like a log in shit there with that contract.

    +1, I just don't understand why Charles Johnson's career was so damn short. What an excellent catcher.

    Unlike teams insuring contracts for this stuff, unfortunately, no.

    So what DHs are available. Vlad? Man Ram? Need someone to protect Cabrera

    maybe they trade for an OF. maybe it's time to let go of their beloved Jacob Turner who they project to be the #2 in a couple years behind Verlander.

    I'm so happy that there's been a huge influx of Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez, videos from the late 90s to 2000's on youtube.

    I don't know if MLB wised up and now allows MLB content on youtube, but damn its awesome seeing a roided up Manny hitting triple deck right field homers in yankee stadium, and pedro basically playing with batters (and almost ripping his arm off with every pitch) during his salad days (even some old footage of him from his Expos days).

    Yu Darvish to the Rangers for 6 years and 60 million. Hideo Nomo or Hideki Irabu?

    Dice K was a "power nibbler" which meant that when the scouting caught up with him he'd get shelled... he'd shy away from his plus 4 seam fastball (which could reach 97) and try to two seam a 91mph one on the corner and just take the walk or worst get hammered.

    Darvish looks to be a normal tall power pitcher/curveball guy comparable to josh beckett... so if he's undisciplined and challenges too much he'll get shelled....I'm rooting for the guy... hopefully he's not hard headed and also gets used to the MLB baseballs (larger seams/stitching).
