DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)when jesus montero starts hitting .375 at triple A, doesn't he force him self into that line up this year? isn't he just waiting for the fragile nick the stick to break down at some point?
(workermonkey from CT)
It would seem that way, but you're asking for two things to happen which always makes the odds longer. You also have to weigh things like the Yankees having the traditional reluctance to DH a youngster and what they want to do about service time, the fact that he's not on the 40-man, and how painlessly simple it would be to move Swisher to DH, play Randy Winn, and pretend that it will all work out in the end. (Steven Goldman)
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)So Damon gets 1/$8. At that price, I kinda wish the Yankees could have kept him. Similar to Abreu before him (at 1/$5, Abreu was a bargain). I like Gardner's defense and baserunning, but I'd be fine with it coming off the bench. And I can do without Randy Winn/Marcus Thames. It's too bad, since the park was such a good fit for him.
(Rob in CT from Andover, CT)
There's a lot that goes into this Damon vs. Gardner 'n' pals thing, and I think in the end it's a lot closer than most are making it out to be. First, there's no guarantee that Damon would continue to be able to hook balls down the line at Stade Yankee, nor, given his age, that his road production would stay in an acceptable place--the split was pretty severe last year, and as we pointed out in the book, there was some good luck on balls in play on the road. Then you've got his growing defensive problems, which encompassed not just throwing but routes. If Gardner can field like a displaced center fielder typically does and hit .275 with reasonable patience and a good number of steals, all of which seems pretty reasonable, this is going to take care of itself. And I can live with seven innings of Marcus Thames in 40 games, followed by a defensive sub. Winn wouldn't have been my choice... At least he's versatile. (Steven Goldman)
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)How long a leash do you think the Yankees will give Brett Gardner? Last year he started out cold the first couple of weeks, and a Melky hot streak later, he had lost the CF gig. If Gardner is batting .190 on May 1st, will Joe Girardi let him ride out his slump?
(Pete from Bronx)
I'm a little worried about this, that Girardi will be too tempted to embrace the veteran wonderfulness of Randy Winn before he's given Gardner enough rope. Knowing the Yankees, this could even happen before the season starts. Say Gardner hits .200 this spring and Winn hits .400. Then Winn is suddenly "back" on the basis of a few windblown Florida balls against Double-A pitchers. That's the one aspect of spring training that drives me insane. (Steven Goldman)
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Steve--Wondering if you ever check out nomaas.org, and if you read through their interview with Brian Cashman? Some interesting comments, especially regarding the Randy Winn decision.
(Juanito from Memphis)
I did read it, and it was a very good interview, maybe slightly overscripted (that is, less give and take than might have been ideal), but I don't want to take away from what was a very good get and some very thoughtful questions. Cashman's rationale for signing Winn, that Reed Johnson's injury history disqualified him, that he needed reliability from his reserves, was well stated. I'm still not sure that Winn is the correct choice given that he's sliding down the other side of the mountain, but I can respect the thought process that went into it. (Steven Goldman)
2010-02-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you see the Marcus Thames/Randy Winn/Jamie Hoffman situation shaking out? Do Thames and Winn have anything left in the tank, given last season's fades? I would have though Thames would pinch hit and Winn would then take over to avoid exposing Thames' glove (or lack thereof). Does this mean Hoffman will be returned to the Dodgers shortly?
(Nick Stone from New York, NY)
First, I think this probably means Hoffman is going back to the Dodgers' organization. I like the natural fit between Thames (a lefty-masher) and Winn (a switch hitter whose bat died vs. lefties last year) or Granderson (who's struggled vs. southpaws lately as well), but it's worth remembering you're talking about fourth and fifth outfielders here, since Brett Gardner is projected to start somewhere, too.

The other good thing about Thames is that he can spot for Nick Johnson at DH against tough lefties, though the Stick has had at least some success against southpaws as well. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Why Randy Winn over re-signing Damon? Is Winn/Granderson that much of an upgrade over Damon/Cabrera-Gardner?
(jamin67038 from Wichita, KS)
I've just been informed that my TA on the topic's been set live on the site. ;) (Christina Kahrl)
2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)I know it's almost obscene to be this angsty over a backup OF, but your thoughts on Randy Winn over Reed Johnson? I don't think some alternatives (Johnson or Baldelli) were explicitly mentioned in your terrific TA piece.
(Eli from Brooklyn)
It's just a couple of million on an initial suggestion for a reserve for a team that probably spends more than that on lunches on the season. Reed Johnson's many things, but just because he shows a bit of leg sartorially, he's not a center fielder, and he doesn't run, walk, or hit for power; when he spanks enough singles against southpaws, he resembles a valuable outfielder, but even then, his career ISO vs. LHPs is .150; he's no Gary Roenicke. Baldelli's someone with fatigue and availability issues. I wouldn't call any of them great choices; landing on Winn at least involves the one who might be healthy and able to be a defensive asset at three positions, and some use as a pinch-runner.

2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Okay, let's say the Braves are in contention around the all-star break. Who are a few corner outfielders they could target?
(DKANDREWS1 from Dan (DC))
Luke Scott, Randy Winn, Adam Dunn. (Joe Sheehan)

(Trevor from austin TX)
They'll be within a few games of .500 either way. If Barry Zito regains even his 2006-07 form, they could be in the wild-card race into September. They also have a lot of veterans, like Edgar Renteria, Aaron Rowand and Randy Winn, who if they tick upwards would push them into a race. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Since the Yankees are looking for a "cheap" catcher under contract for next year, is it possible that they would deal for Bengie Molina? The Giants also have an outfielder (Randy Winn) to fill the Matsui role.
(Chris from IA)
The Yankees really need a left-handed batter with some OBP to platoon with Jose. They have to add some offense, and I wouldn't gamble on Bengie's career year continuing in the AL. The fit is Zaun or Melhuse or Saltalamacchia...just someone to get the .220 OBP out of the lineup. (Joe Sheehan)
