Rex has demanded Idzik to be 40 million under the cap come free agent time, they're already 33 under...it's about the only thing Idzik is good at,.... that and keeping his mouth shut.

Still need 2 SPs, BP help.... Yanks say they won't sign Drew which I know makes a lot of people happy lol..... Would love to get both Tanaka and Jimenez, but Garza still isn't a bad one either.....
I'd rather have Jimenez.......he's more durable......Garza is allot like Buchholtz of the sox.....often injured....just can't stay healthy....Garza hasn't had around 200 IP since 2007....While Jimenez has been the opposite......around 200 IP every year since 2007....Yanks need some pen help also a closer in particular......I'd take Balfour there......wonder where Gardner gets traded to and for who or what......remains to be seen.....still allot of work to be done ahead......

Lets start 2014 off the right way in the Yankees forum.

On July 4, 1939, the New York Yankees held "Lou Gehrig Day" at Yankee Stadium. Gehrig had been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) just two weeks earlier. With more than 62,000 fans in attendance, the Iron Horse took the microphone for what would become one of the most memorable moments in baseball history.

At the close of Gehrig's emotional speech, Babe Ruth walked up, put his arm around his former teammate and spoke in his ear the first words they had shared since 1934. Gehrig was elected to the Hall of Fame that December. He died in 1941, at age 37.

The speech:

"Fans, for the past two weeks you have been reading about the bad break I got. Yet today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth. I have been in ballparks for seventeen years and have never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. Look at these grand men. Which of you wouldn't consider it the highlight of his career just to associate with them for even one day?

Sure I'm lucky. Who wouldn't consider it an honor to have known Jacob Ruppert? Also, the builder of baseball's greatest empire, Ed Barrow? To have spent six years with that wonderful little fellow, Miller Huggins? Then to have spent the next nine years with that outstanding leader, that smart student of psychology, the best manager in baseball today, Joe McCarthy?

Sure I'm lucky. When the New York Giants, a team you would give your right arm to beat, and vice versa, sends you a gift -- that's something. When everybody down to the groundskeepers and those boys in white coats remember you with trophies -- that's something. When you have a wonderful mother-in-law who takes sides with you in squabbles with her own daughter -- that's something. When you have a father and a mother who work all their lives so you can have an education and build your body -- it's a blessing. When you have a wife who has been a tower of strength and shown more courage than you dreamed existed -- that's the finest I know.

So I close in saying that I may have had a tough break, but I have an awful lot to live for."

Three years after Lou Gehrig made that farewell speech at Yankee Stadium, Gary Cooper gave his rendition of it in the movie, "Pride of the Yankees." Hollywood mogul Sam Goldwyn had resisted the idea of a movie about a ballplayer, and evidently some tweaking had to be done on the speech to make it more appealing at the theater.

Here is the text of the movie version, with such terms as "Murderers Row" and "Bronx Bombers" added for extra effect:

"I have been walking onto ballfields for 16 years, and I've never received anything but kindness and encouragement from you fans. I have had the great honor to have played with these great veteran ballplayers on my left -- Murderers Row, our championship team of 1927. I have had the further honor living and playing with these men on my right -- the Bronx Bombers, the Yankees of today.

"I have been given fame and undeserved praise by the boys up there behind the wire, my friends, the sports writers. I have worked under the two greatest managers of all time, Miller Huggins and Joe McCarthy.

"I have a mother and father who fought to give me health and a solid background in my youth. I have a wife, a companion for life, who has shown me more courage than I ever knew.

"People all say that I've had a bad break. But today ... today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth."

Yankees Will Not Sign Stephen Drew

By Jeff Todd [December 31, 2013 at 11:59am CST]

Yankees GM Brian Cashman says that the club will not sign Stephen Drew, reports Peter Gammons of GammonsDaily.com (via Twitter). After missing out on Omar Infante, New York had been rumored to be considering a run at the free agent infielder.

As MLBTR's Charlie Wilmoth recently explained, Drew is far and away the most attractive middle infielder left on the open market. For New York, then, choosing to pass on his services means that the club will not further supplement its infield mix through a significant free agent signing. A trade may still be possible, but having re-signed Derek Jeter and Brendan Ryan while adding Brian Roberts and Kelly Johnson, the Yanks have already been quite active in adding players who can man short, second, or third.

If the Yankees are indeed out on Drew, relatively dry demand figures to remain the major impediment to a substantial, multi-year deal for the 30-year-old. Last we heard, Drew was still in discussions with the Mets. And, of course, Drew could still fit in Boston. But as Gammons notes, it will be "delicate" for the Red Sox to bring him back on a pillow contract after he turned down the club's qualifying offer.

I see you've been commenting on the available FA's for the rotation. I still prefer Garza who's no stranger to the AL East. Buyers should be beware of Jimenez who''s lost 3 MPH on his 2 and 4 seam fastball. I know he finished strong in 2013 but I'm not sure he handle NY either...Fu passes on Jimenez

Cafardo On Tanaka, Jimenez, Cruz, Lackey, Ichiro

By Zach Links [December 29, 2013 at 8:34am CST]

In this week's column, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe writes that the Orioles owe it to their fans to take a shot at a championship by bolstering the roster. The O's moved Jim Johnson to save on his expected $10MM salary for 2014 but the nixing of Grant Balfour's deal leaves them without a proven closer. The Orioles, with a few fixes, could be exciting and fun to watch, but they need more if they want to win it all. More from this week's column..
•Cafardo cautions not to sleep on the Red Sox in the Masahiro Tanaka hunt and one AL scout says it’s the perfect time for the Red Sox to strike.“They have veteran pitchers in the final year or two years remaining on their deals,” he said.“They’ll be clearing out a lot of payroll soon. I know they feel they have good young pitching on the horizon, but Tanaka should be a very good No. 2 or No. 3 starter on any staff. I would think with their emphasis on pitching, they would get into it.” The Yankees, Cubs, Rangers, and Dodgers figure to be the most aggressive and the Angels, Phillies, Royals, and Blue Jays are expected to get into it.
•Will the Red Sox's experience with Daisuke Matsuzaka scare them off of Tanaka?“I don’t think that can enter their thinking. I’m sure they would have gone after Yu Darvish in retrospect,” said one National League GM.
•Cafardo recently spoke with a few GMs who feel the Yankees may wind up with Ubaldo Jimenez, even if they land Tanaka.“He had an excellent second half, has great stuff, and he has the type of personality that would fit New York,” one GM said.“He doesn’t let things get to him. He’s good at shrugging off things and turning the page.” If the Yankees ink both pitchers, it's pretty difficult to see them staying under the $189MM mark.
•Nelson Cruz is the best available free agent among position players, but his demand of four years at $75MM has turned off teams. While other PED guys such as Jhonny Peralta have cashed in, teams are worried that Cruz, who more relies on his power is of greater concern for teams who worry that being off the stuff could hurt his power numbers.
•John Lackey’s name has come up consistently this winter, but the Red Sox aren’t motivated to deal him. That could change, but the club is enthused about his $500K option for 2015.
•It'll be interesting to see if the Yankees can move ichiro Suzuki given their crowded outfield. The Giants remain a possibility, Cafardo writes.
•The Dodgers could still trade from their outfield surplus. When it comes to Matt Kemp, of course, teams want to see how he rebounds from shoulder and ankle surgeries.
•With Brian McCann aboard and Francisco Cervelli as backup, Yankees catcher Austin Romine is very much available.
•Johan Santana is getting closer to making a decision on a minor league deal with a team. There’s been some speculation about the Twins since Santana still resides in Fort Myers, Fla., where the Twins have spring training. A small-market team such as the Astros could also have some interest.
