At least they didn't offer him 2/24.

Not sure he will come here regardless.

The allure of NYY is probably too much.

I don't know, he already had enough of Boston media. Also, once A-Chicken comes back, Youk will not get at bats.

Exactly the kind of signing I expect us to make.

It really all depends on the what Youk wants more; the security of a multiple-year deal OR more money on a one-year deal.  If the Yankees expect him to come in and play 3B like he did a couple years ago, they'll be sadly mistaken.  Youk at this point is a 1B/DH and if they bring him in to play 3B, it won't be long before the fans and media in New York are on him about his defense at the hot corner.  Cleveland offers him the chance of playing a position he's still capable of playing and the security of a 2-year deal.  I'm hoping he thinks the same way I'm thinking and he decides to come here instead.

It's amazing teams like the Yankees will spend 12 million for 6 months of Youkilis declining away from his prime.

Couldn't they just get Hannahan and dump him when A-roid comes back?

i just hope he isn't finished - unless he signs with the yankees, of course.

also speculation that tribe leads in swisher race. will be a vastly different team if we get those two and trade cabrera for some starting pitching.

I would be OK with this if it means cutting ties with Hafner.

Yeah, we might be competitive if we do that and move Choo for some more pitching.

then you must really not like the thought of the indians paying him $18 mill or so to decline over two years.

Actually to correct myself I meant 3 months because he becomes a parttime player when A-roid comes back.

They are willing to spend 4 million a month for 3 months of fulltime play.

We are only willing to spend 1.3 million a month which is a lot less for what he will provide in a worst case scenario.

18 million is the highside of what he deserves, but hey even Hannahan is rumored to get a multiyear deal. eek1

Good point, forgot they let go most of their DH's from 2012 in Eric Chavez, Raul Ibañez, and Jones.

Apparently A-Rod will be out until the all-star break, he will probably end up playing 120 games if he doesn't break down.

Its unlikely he will sign in Cleveland regardless but will be interesting to see how he produces next year.

I fear he is done and would rather pursue Swisher if the difference in price is not crazy.

I checked on the report of the 2-year, $18M Tribe offer to Youk. It could be a little higher than $18M for 2.

It seems as if the two are not mutually exclusive.

As long as it is not more than 2 year 20 or 2 year 18 with a option 3rd year at 10 - 11 mil that only kicked in if he hit certain incentives.

He could always become the Dh back-up 1st baseman to Aguliar if he does not hit a bump in his development down the road during the 3rd year just a thought.

True, but the Indians have been so inactive in free agency of late that the idea that they might get 2 guys and spend over $20 million per year in salary for them is just too hard to comprehend.
