    IMO, Polanco would make a fine lead-off hitter. It is true that he didn't draw many walks last year. Neverthelss, he seldom strikes out, he puts the ball in play regularly, he has the 2nd highest OBP of any player on the team (with over 90 AB), and he scores a lot of runs.

    As I said, it's a mixed bag. Unless Granderson drastically reduces his strikeouts, Polanco is the next best thing we have to a leadoff hitter. I would still site his lack of walks and his speed to be somewhat a deterrent, but I wouldn't have anything against him leading off.

    ESPN - Pena, Young are MLB comeback players for 2007 - MLB

    Both are good stories. Too bad they didn't happen when these guys were wearing Tigers uniforms.

    Gary Sheffield to have shoulder surgery Monday

    Some good news. If he's healthy next year it would be huge help to the team.

    Hmmm ... this is good news. An old guy like Shef, however, you wonder if he can stay injury free throughout the season.

    It should be noted that Sheffield had torn his labrum. Thankfully the surgery was a success.

    It looks like we're stuck with Inge and his contract. He won't get any better.

    I'm confident DD will at least attempt to make a shake-up in this FA market, though its not a very good looking market. Maybe we land pull a couple strings and land a SS like Renteria.

    That loud F-bomb coming out of NY was Steinbrenner and Torre saying it simultaneousley as the Yankees go down to the Indians and get bounced out of the playoffs in the first round for third year in a row. It wasn't as dramatic as the Tigers taking them out the Yanks last year, but it's good to see the guy with the highest payroll and his nasty threats to his manager will be upset the whole winter. Speaking of upset, the TBS announcer indicated during the 7th inning stretch that if the Indians won the series over the Yanks it would be upset??????

    I think the Yankees need a change at the helm and it looks like they'll get one finally. Wow, people sure hate that team, and it seems to revolve around their payroll and the team's ability to outspend everyone. Seems like the Red Wings used to employ the same tactic.

    Steinbrenner has NEVER understood how important chemistry can be. They didn't need A-Rod to win titles. They haven't won one with him OR Giambi. The Yankees that won in the past had guys who knew their roles. And as much as people hate the Yankees, those teams that had a lot of good players (and not necessarily great ones) like Bernie Williams, Paul O'Neill, and Scott Brosius were a thing of beauty to watch.

    Steinbrenner didn't need Clemens either although his 10 appearances may have been enough to beat our Tigers to the pennant. Maybe if Dombrowki had made a move at the trade deadline he could have offset that lake Yankee surge.

    I have to give it to Steiney though. He makes move to make his team better paying above the proverbial luxury tax while teams in Detroit get to the finals or world series and think they have enough in the tank to get back and win so they don't spend extra dollar for the extra person fearing they will upset the apple cart and of course spend to much money..

    It is a good move. I would've thought they'd try to netogiate longer term with lower annual salary. Maybe they did and Pudge didn't agree. But we still need him. There are no alternatives.

    Without Arod Yanks don't make playoffs. Clemons steadied that pitching roster like Rogers did last year. Arod carried that team in April and May{when they stank the most}

    I don't know man, great pitchers want great catchers. Pudge is top notch.
