indians rotation is meh. inconsistent and one-hit wonder ubaldo, solid and reliable #2 in masterson.... and tomlin, talbot, huff, carrasco, mcallister, gomez and kluber. maybe some of them can contribute but that rotation screams for veterans.
Ugh, as a Yankees fan I would have strongly preferred Reynolds to Youkilis. Granted, he's a garbage fire at 3rd, but the Yankees desperately need a right handed power bat.
I just don't see what Youk adds to the Yankees aside from a mediocre 3 months as A-Rod's fill-in. And that's assuming that he stays healthy until Rodriguez gets back (which is far from a gimme given his recent record.)
As for the Tribe, this move puts them one piece away from a World Series, no?
LaRoche? I'm suprised a team hasn't jumped on him yet. Contact hitter with power and an excellant glove @ 1st.
Pretty sure I read that he wanted to stay with Washington (Who can blame him, great young club, all upside). I think it's been mentioned that his agent and the team agreed on price, not on term. I'd love to see him jump to the O's, he'd be a great addition.
Anyway, thanks to Marky Mark for his service as an Oriole, he was fun to watch at times, and horrible to watch at others.
