I keep hearing that we may see guys like Hideki Matsui, Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez being moved soon in a trade and/or waiver type deal. So, that leads to today’s wild thought.
If one of these three becomes available, should the Yankees look to pick them up, for August/September insurance; or, at the least, to keep them away from the Rays? Or, is it not worth losing someone off the 40-man roster to get them on the team for a few weeks?
Just an add-on: I think, but am not sure, that with Nick Johnson on the D.L., maybe the Yankees could sneak one of these guys on to the post-season roster. Imagine if they had Manny Ramirez as their D.H. in the post-season?
I’m not sure how I would feel about that? But, for sure, it’s interesting and a wild thought, no?
And, for certain, I would not mind having Damon or Matsui hanging around, in September, just to add some good karma in the clubhouse, etc.
