That is a pretty solid lineup right there
Keppinger WOULD be a nice fit, and would certainly help us at 3B offensively. How is he there defensively, though?

Also, the guy recently broke his fibula. I'm no doctor, but could he feasibly be ready in time for Spring Training?

Before he broke his fibula, he may have been 1 step faster than Paulie. It may be a dead heat now.

He will hit for a better average than Youk but with very little power for a 3rd baseman. Basically a singles hitter because of his speed. Better defensively than Youk.

Dodgers have emerged as a potential surprise suitor for a.j. pierzynski, who was terrific in 2012. http://cbsprt.co/StspLU

He was about an inch away from signing there in 2010 before the chairman put in a last minute call. Hope he does the same here.

Russel Martin just signed with the Pirates so the Yankees will be looking for a catcher. I think that AJ is a much better fit for the Yankees and Yankee Stadium than for the Dodgers.

Russell Martin just signed for two years 17.5 million.

It's been real Anthony John

Welp. I guess that we're going to find out what kind of player Tyler Flowers really is.

The Yankees considering the rest of the league as their farm system makes me burn with a white hot rage, wishing an asteroid would destroy Yankee Stadium (during the offseason when it is empty of people), and the vault that keeps the Steinbrenner fortune.

Source: #WhiteSox exploring addition of starting pitcher, lower-end type at the right price. Would give them flexibility to trade Floyd.

This...doesn't make sense to me. The Sox supposedly have six starters already. Trading away Floyd would still leave them with five. Why bother going after another arm?

Only reason I can think of for doing this is that they don't trust Santiago or something.

There we go! Some action finally...or at least the possibility of some movement.

If they don't find anything though, I think they have enough options that they could move Floyd anyway.

Mark Gonzales writes, several end-of-season comments by pitchers indicate they're just as content with Flowers behind the plate.

Hahn on 3rd base situation. Says any major moves would require in essence shedding some payroll first, says if a deal is made it probably will involve the Sox trading some starting pitching.

This gets to the point about 'why trade pitching?' because if you deal Floyd and his salary it gives you some flexibility to add potentially a cheaper starting pitcher AND another piece somewhere else.
