Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

NJ.com: MLB free agency rumors: Eduardo Nunez to Yankees?

Could Eduardo Nunez find his way back to the Bronx?

As the new year begins, the Yankees still have glaring holes at second and third base created by trade (Starlin Castro) and free agency (Todd Frazier). While bringing back the popular Frazier makes a ton of sense, finances could be an immovable object.

According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, there’s a chance youngsters like, say, Gleyber Torres and Tyler Wade could man half of the infield on opening day in April. But don’t count out a veteran arriving to provide some cover.

More likely, one of those positions will be manned by someone not currently in the organization. The Yankees expressed interest in the Orioles’ Manny Machado and have been in contact with free agent third baseman Todd Frazier. A reunion with Eduardo Nunez is another option.

Machado’s name stands out, but Nunez could represent a much more realistic and cost-effective option. The ex-Yankees infielder finished the 2017 season with the Boston Red Sox after a midseason trade brought him over from San Francisco.

Nunez, 30, posted an .801 OPS and 110 OPS+ across 491 plate appearances last season. That mark included a robust .892 OPS down the stretch for the AL East champs in Boston.

I am an unabashed fan of Nun-E.  But his defense is still not good and I don’t think he’s a guy you want starting at an infield position regularly.  But if you can get him at a reasonable price for a year or two, I don’t see a problem here.

Until he makes that first error of course.
