The Yankees signed 10-time All Star Andruw Jones to a one-year deal worth $2M. The deal which was agreed to last month and finalized this week, includes performance bonuses. Jones who was signed to be the fourth outfielder last season hit .247 with 13 home runs and 33 RBI with the Yanks. His stats picked up in the second half when he batted .291 overall and .344 off left handed pitching.
Over at the Yankee Analysts, Michael Eder wrote a “controversial” post on why A.J. Burnett should be the fifth starter. He compares some of Burnett’s numbers with another major leaguer to prove his point. That other pitcher? Tim Lincecum.
Mike Axisa of River Avenue Blues answers a question from the Mailbag about the Yankees chances in acquiring Domonic Brown and Jason Heyward.
And in a post close to my heart, Brien Jackson of It’s About the Money, suggests the Yankees should go after someone from the recent past to fill the DH role: Jason Giambi. He thinks it makes sense, well, kind of. I wholeheartedly agree! Bring Big G and the Golden Thong back!
