    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.

      just a friendly reminder to all, no matter who you may support, to go out and vote.

      Yes indeed.

      And on a Yankee topic, how about that Feinsand report that Cashman still likes Pavano and might make a pitch to bring him back?

      Or that Peavey has added the Yankees to the list of acceptable trade destinations?

      Or that Jeter’s defensive reputation is taking some more major hits?

      i can see how the issue with Pavano could be a tricky one… its very easy to just dismiss his tenure here in NY, and move on.

      but when you take a second glance, you finally have him back, healthy, and hungry for a new contract. the yankees can prob take a chance on picking up that option for the purpose of bringing him into spring training as an audition for other teams… maybe even hold onto him until the trade deadline if things are going well.

      Let’s spice things up a little bit…who is the Barack Obama of the Yankees? Who is the John McCain of the Yankees? Who is the Sarah Palin of the Yankees? and who is the Joe Biden of the Yankees?

      I say we include front office, managers/coaches, and players.

      OnceIWasAYankeeFan, others – FYI, I just started an entry on the Pavano thing. I thought it merited an entry by itself.

      Come on Steve that is not politics…relating Yankees to politicians? It could be another fun way for you to bash Cashman!

      It’s not tricky @ all. Especially when you consider his time in the majors.

      Here’s a thought for discussion: what about moving Cano to center field? I don’t know for sure but I’ll assume that he has an above average arm for an outfielder and he certainly has speed and a good glove.

      The Yanks need an athletic center fielder. The better the defensive ability then the less important is the offense. By those standards, his offense does not have to be to the max potential that many see in him.

      Then, filling in 2nd base is a lot easier than CF.
