I guess the Yankees really are planning on rolling with Cervelli. Let me be the first to suggest a Jorge Posada comeback.

One year deal for this guy is a bit surprising given the lack of catching talent this year. Interested to see the dollar amount.

Can't believe he only got a one-year deal and the Yankees weren't the team to give it to him.

I'd rather have Cervelli behind the plate than the encrusted remains of what used to be Jorge Posada.

It will take Posada a few years to get back into playing shape. The answer here is to slowly work him in over four years while giving the rest of the games to Girardi.

Also, the correct answer here is Romine Regiment.

Romine Regiment > Cervelli Crew > Stewart Squad.

Sadly, all three options are flat-out terrible.

It's not as bad as it's being made out to be. Maybe it'll do us some good having guys in the lineup that don't think the sport of baseball is a homerun derby. Like Russell Martin, for example.

The same Russell Martin who, in addition to the homers, brings a double-digit walk rate and great defense? F that guy! Bring on the inferior players who can neither hit nor defend nearly as well as Martin.

Martin's defense is overrated. His rate of throwing out baserunners last year was mediocre at best.

Ultimately I think it's gonna be Romine. Cervelli's been in the system as a 3rd sting catcher for several years now, they're not just suddenly gonna go to him. And I don't see Stewart starting either. I think the Yankees have a better plan than just giving the job to backups. They obviously think Romine's ready.

If anyone needs me I'll be staring at a list of free agent catchers and a thesaurus entry for "entourage".

It is hilarious how many people are aware of the Cervelli Crew meme

Good work

I despise Pierzynski but would've welcomed him for a year. Sucks for Yankees.

Best FA option is Kelly Shoppach. FML

I would never sign Pierzynski unless there was a clause in his contact that would wear a bag over his head the entire season.

Brilliant signing.

Let the Tyler Flowers era begin!!

Glad AJ gets a chance to win somewhere. No reason to spend $7.5M on a catcher when they aren't going to contend.

Is this thread about AJ signing or the Yankees catchers?
