Still Waiting On A Leftfielder

Sunday, December 27, 2009

Brian Cashman did plenty of Christmas shopping this past month, but there is still one thing he still needs: a leftfielder.

Now, the name that has recently surfaced is Reed Johnson. Johnson is a right-handed hitter who can play all three outfield positions, so he is a fit for leftfield. However, he is not a great hitter and would fit as more of a platoon guy with Brett Gardner because of his splits.

Right now, the leftfield situation is about looking for a hitter to fill the 9th spot. Some people think they should give Gradner a shot, but I think you will expose Gardner if you give him a lot of at bats. Also Gardner gives us depth on the bench. I still think Mark DeRosa is the best option but it looks like he could be heading to San Francisco.

Sam Borden looks at Johnny Gomes and Xavier Nady as possibilities.

Honestly, after watching the Yankees World Series DVD I got for Christmas, I miss Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui already. I was content with the Yankees moving on without them, but then I watched that video and I wished they were coming back. I really wish the Yankees would stop pretending they have a budget and just sign Damon. But they want to clear as much money off the budget for next year to give Jeter and Rivera extensions.

I don't know what the Yankees will do for leftfield, but it won't be anything of the likes of Jason Bay or Matt Holliday.
