Morning Bits: Jeter, Sabathia, Soriano, Bronx Businesses, Martin

Good morning everyone. Welcome to another day of the Yankees offseason but if you want to watch some baseball, the Giants and Cardinals play tonight with everything on the line. Cardinals try to punch a ticket to the World Series tonight while the Giants try to force a Game 7. Let’s get on with the morning links.

— With no Yankees baseball until April in the Bronx, businesses on 161st Street are beginning to suffer this winter.

—  According to Rafael Soriano‘s agent Scott Boras (of course), he says there’s a strong chance that Soriano will opt out of his contract.

CC Sabathia is going to visit Dr. Andrews about getting surgery for his elbow. He would just need to get some spurs shaved off and should be ready by Spring Training.

— Speaking of Surgery, Derek Jeter had surgery yesterday. Jeter should be ready to play in 4-5 months. (Also in the article explains Andruw Jones‘s “excuse” as to why he hit .197 in the regular season).

— 2 Yankees pitchers want the Yankees to bring back Russell Martin next season; CC Sabathia and Derek Lowe (who most likely won’t be on the team next year)

  1. I’m fine with Soriano walking and the Yankees having that money to use elsewhere.

    Any time a pitcher needs to see Dr. Andrews that’s a red flag. Let’s hope its not serious for C.C.

    I’d be ok with Martin gone if its for a cheaper option. Sucks that Romine was hurt most of last season because he could have fit in there.

  2. say C.C. needs major surgery and out for half or all of next year when they really look at his elbow. What moves plans do you see the Yankees making.

    • Yankees could make Kuroda the “ace” and then shop around for a legit #2 starter. Kuroda was better than CC last season.

      • Regardless to what happens with CC the Yankees need to tender Kuroda. If he accepts he becomes a trade asset on June 15th if the Yankees season tanks.

        • Free, I see the Yanks signing Kuroda, Ichiro, Ibanez, and signing a free agent starter like Anibal Sanchez and a relief pitcher. I also think Monte has a chance to stick if he does well in spring training. Looks like Pettite will come back also along with Martin.

    • Id rather not think about it lol

    • Depends on cost as the Yankees only have 1.8 million to spend next year.

      • Matt to be honest on second thought I don’t have much interest. I am looking for SS and 3rd internationally next year if I am the Yankees.

        The Yankees already have way too much pitching at the lower levels.
