Morning Bits: Free agents 2013, Curious off-season, Oswalt, A-Rod,

Good Morning all it’s already Mid-Week so that’s exciting.  We are getting closer to Friday and to find out what the Yankees will be doing with Nakajima.  From all the reports though it seems that he will be going back to Japan.

Let’s get right to the links.

* The Yankees are saving now for a potential splash next winter.  Some great options in the 2013 class of free-agents.

* They Bombers curious off-season leads to many questions, few answers. IMO it also lead to a lot of head scratching.

* Yankee and Cardinals have interest in Roy Oswalt.  Please please be true.  Let’s lock him up Cashman.

* Batting coach Kevin Long says A-Rod is determined and focused.  Well that’s good to hear.  The Yankees also believe that A-Rod is at full strength.

  1. In the long article it mentions that he will be visiting A-Rod this Thursday for some workouts and Gardner and Montero may be joining in as well. Good to see these guys getting some early workouts with Long.

  2. If A-Rod is 100% that sure as hell would be nice. No make that great. If the Yankees can get 130 to 140 games, 500 plus PA it’s only going to help. And make their offense even more potent. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

    Get Tex’s BA above the Mason/Dixon line and watch out it could be 2009 all over again.

    • agreed it could be something special plus having Montero’s bat over Posada’s is going to be nice as well. Montero being just a DH he might take some time getting used that as some players have an adjustment period going from playing in the field and batting to just batting and sitting.

      I could offense can always help carry a suspect pitching rotation well through the season not really in the playoffs.

  3. Matt, some of your readers might be interested in reading the attached piece from RAB. Particularly the last 2 paragraphs were the ones that interested me. I’ve been advocating the Yankees releasing Feliciano for several weeks now to free up a spot.
