    Why Christian before Gardner?

    Want to make sure Gardner is still getting his full reps in, Justin is older, more experienced and can handle sporatic playing time. Plus his speed is comparable to Brett's

    Next move seems to be likely before the Houston series where they are likely to DFA Moeller for Christian... we'll have to see if it comes to fruition.
    If this move happens (Moeller for Christian) instead of Gardner and Duncan remains up? I would fire Cashman on the spot

    Brett is 25 years old, has now had a full year of AAA, played in college, and is hitting over .300 in the minors, I dont believe in the full reps if a player can help out the big club, the purpose of the minor leagues is to help out the big club

    I'm just going off of what I've read, mostly from everyone's favorite Interested Reader. He says that he's seen him play a couple of times recently and that his speed exceeds anyone we have on the MLB roster right now (IIRC). That'd put him faster than Damon, obviously. I don't have any comps beyond that; but the way everyone talks about him, I assume his speed is somewhere in the neighborhood of Brian Roberts.

    Agreed purpose is to help the big club... however one must look at the long term benefits vs short term....

    Gardner better long term option
    Christian better short term option.

    You dont have to be that fast to be faster than anyone on our roster.

    With LoHud Pete reporting Albaladejo out for the year w/stress fracture in elbow... this will soon free up a spot on the 40 man roster as he will certainly be shifted to the 60 day DL

    They call him Radio because he can be heard but not seen.
    I have no association with "TEPLimey" at nomaas. Apparently a very disturbed individual likes to get their rocks off on pretending they are me. Sad, really.

    Albadalejo moved to 60 day dl, Oneli Perez claimed from Cleveland, added to 40 man roster and assigned to AA Trenton; Additionally Ponson, the Curacao Coconut has been signed and sent to AAA Scranton-WB.

    Close enough. I laughed even though I knew it wasn't accurate.

    Re: Official 40 Man Roster Tracker

    I understand that the Matsui news is good but you know how you keep him healthy? By making him a full time DH. I wouldnt play him in the OF for the rest of the year. He is a butcher out there anyways. Tell him to simply focus on keeping that knee healthy and DH five days a week. Brett Gardner should be added to the roster and be the teams 4th Outfielder. He can spell Damon in LF and spell Melky in CF. And when yuo need Abreu to get a day off you can put Melky in RF and place Gardner in CF for a game. Gardner can play LF at least once a week, Center and RF once a week as well and be a valuable D replacement and pinch runner.

    I have seen Gardner run, he is MUCH faster than Damon, easily the fastest player in the Yankee organization. I have seen Ellsbury play in person as well, and I think they both can burn at the same rate. Not good speed but GREAT speed, gamebreaking type of speed. One of the five fastest men in the sport, trust me he can burn

    If he played everyday as a Yankee I think he could still at least 50 bases

    I read in another thread that Steve White was placed on waivers off the 40 man roster. So who is taking his place?

    Well, he would need to be on-base to get those SB.....
    Hoping Rivera can pitch forever!

    White cleared waivers and has been removed from 40 man roster... still in AAA Scranton. 39/40 slots taken.

    Re: Official 40 Man Roster Tracker

    The front office should put Moeller on the DL (so not to lose him) and call Gardner up for 15 days and see whether he can play the position defensively. If so, maybe they could give him some ABs in place of Melky.
    For the love of GOD, please stop talking Hank.
