With Brian McCann off the the roster, the Yankees find themselves with a wide open spot for DH. Not much was thought of the McCann trade other than the fact that it freed up some space, so the young guys could get more at bats. Guys like Tyler Austin, Rob Refsynder, and Aaron Judge would all benefit from this move since the roster spots are limited with so many positions already filled. Those young guns shouldn't be getting too excited just yet because an old head might be coming for their job. Multiple reports have said there's some interest in bringing back Carlos Beltran, who before being traded away the day of the trade deadline was our best hitter. He batted .300, hit 20HR's, and drove in 60 RBI's for the Yankees last season. After we dealt Beltran not only did the team get better, but Beltran got worse, he clearly showed signs of himself slowing down, and I really couldn't tell you how effective he'll end up being this year. I'd take Beltran though, I'm all for it, he was my favorite Yankee player on the team last season before being traded, now Sanchez has taken that throne, but oh well doesn't hurt to have multiple players that you admire. Beltran wouldn't have to play the field anymore with the DH spot now open, that's huge because he's a total liability in the field. Beltran numbers won't be close to last years, I'm being realistic, if he can hit .270 with 20 dingers though, I'll be happy with him being our DH. No doubt he'd be a great veteran presence in the lockerroom, you'll never hear anyone complain about having a future HOF, and champion in the clubhouse to show the young guns the ropes. I'm all for this move, Cashman has pushed all the right buttons recently, so anything he decides to do I'm going to believe in. Cashman is setting up a dynasty, he wants a few more rings, Beltran won't be apart of that, but he will be apart of our current success, which Cashman is doing a great job of winning and staying competitive while building for the future. Take notes fellow GM's, Cashman is showing you all how it's done, except Theo, Theo keep doing you, it seems to be working just fine.
