Is It Time For Another Ninja Move?
Prince Fielder still hasn't been signed. The Yankees need a DH. Is it time for another Teixeira style ninja move? Sure, we don't want to spend a ton of money on a guy who can only DH. But maybe, for the bat we'd be getting, we wouldn't be spending a ton of money at this point. That is, maybe we can get him for cheaper than one might have thought, and considering his age, and the role he'll play (DH), it will be worth it. That said, we don't know how he would do as a DH. He's always been a first baseman and we know from our Giambi experience that not everyone can take to DHing. But man, if we had Fielder as our DH, combined w/ A-Rod (even old A-Rod), Teixeira, Cano, Granderson. Oh man. That would be crazy. Probably not worth it for more than the first couple years, but crazy.
