Idealy, I want Nady. He can field, he can really hit, and has the potential to be an all star. However, he can be a HUGE injury risk. Imagine if the Yankees signed him one year, $6-7 mill, and he hurts himself that first game.
Where would the Yankees be?
They'd have a huge, hige hole.
The safe option is to go with Johnny Gomes. But, he is so much of a downgrade, that its not worth it.
After half an hour searching, I found my man:
Although he didn't play left once last year, but has multiple times in the past, and actually played well.
Branyan has said he wants a two year deal: He can play left this year, and if Crawford signs next year, he can be moved to right field.
There is no question Branyan is a great player: He hit 31 homers dispite missing 2 months due to back problems.
2 years, $10 mil a year, and Branyan can wear pinstripes in 2010.
Russell Muscle: My choice for 2010.
