    Feel free to use this post as a place for you to comment on anything Yankees-related (or within reach of tagging the bag of being Yankees-related on a decent slide) today. It could be a casual conversation offering, or, something you saw in the news, or something very detailed that you want to share that’s within the territory of Yankeeland.

    Or, comment on something that someone else has posted here in the comments…

    Have fun. Play nice. And, remember, keep it Yankees-focused.

      Trade Kennedy and a mid level prospect like Pope for Kila Ka’aihue of the Royals.

      With less pressure in KC, Kennedy could blossom into a middle rotation starter. He’s young and did great flying through the minors.

      Ka’aihue in 2008 at AA had a .450+ OBP, 104/67 BB/K, and 37 jacks in just over 400 ABs. He could be a guy to step in as the first baseman for the Yanks for many years to come. Since the Royals just traded for Jacobs and also have Butler and Shealy at first, it would appear the Kila could be available.

      If all those guys are available with the arrival of Jacobs, you go for the best player in the bunch. That’s Billy Butler.

      Butler’s a poor defender. The word is he may be moved to DH by the Royals.
