    Fraizer at least has options....

    So I guess that makes Ellsbury technically the 5th outfielder.

    the rest is just details.

    He should be ahead of Frazier.

    He's not a bad player. He's a league averageish player with an all-star contract.

    Re: The Hunt for an Ellsbury Trade

    I don't care if we even have to wrap him up with another prospect just so it's a more attractive bait. It would get better odds of getting something back worth keeping. NBA trades are built like that.

    Money dictates that its better to keep Frazier. Plus, something has gone seriously wrong if Frazier can't outplay Ellsbury at this stage.
    His isolated power was one of the best on the team last year. Just needs a little seasoning.

    Source says it’s “unlikely” that Jacoby Ellsbury would waive his no-trade clause to leave the Yankees.

    If he isn't going to allow himself to be traded, they should just place him on the 60 day DL everytime he complains about an ache or pain, or limps a little, or shakes his hand or blinks.

    Just save administration time and put him on the 365 day DL.
    Let the kids play.

    Maybe they have some tainted blood around and could set him up for a failed PED test, not that I'm suggesting that.

    It sounds like you are suggesting that

    I say, make him Chapman's personal catcher and let him go to the 60 day DL the hard way, but I'm not suggesting that.

    True fact: Ken Brett pitched 5 2/3 innings of scoreless relief for the Angels in the Ron Guidry 18 strikeout game. He also walked 0 batters, while wildman Guidry walked 2 in his 9 innings.

    I say make him pitch in blowout losses a la Swisher. With that throwing arm he should be a natural.

    Re: The Hunt for an Ellsbury Trade

    I loathe the idea of going into next season with Ellsbury on the roster.

    Simple Fix:
    Tell Ellsbury to cough up a list of 10 teams he would waive his NTC for or the only time he will step on the field is when he is chalking it. He will also be designated to cleaning the restrooms in uniform starting at the 7th inning stretch.

    Find a taker For 2-3 million a year....and BAM! The recipient of my least favorite contract of all time is donzo.

    It almost sounds like he is trying to force a DFA.

    I would never sell Ken Brett short. I'm guessing his the second-best left-handed pitcher named Ken in MLB history, not to mention the second-best hitter in the Brett family.

    Meh. Even if we disqualify Rogers for being a Kenny rather than a Ken, I can immediately think of Holtzman and Raffensberger who were better. Heintzelman is very close as well.

    Came in as a douche, leaving as a douche.

    Never liked him. Not one bit.

    Looks like he will be an expensive pitch runner.

    It's his right to exercise his no trade clause, just like Stanton.
