Yankees released Boone. And even if he wont be back this year, i know there's A LOT of Willie Harris doubters here, so Boone could play 2B. Who knows what teams will be vying for him. I dont think Kenny will make any attempt to get Boone now or at the season's end. But i definatly think that Boone will be awesome again. Going to school in Dayton...there's so many Aaron Boone fans, and from what i hear, he is realy committed to everything he does. I think he'd make a good addition.

Might be something to keep in mind down the road. If there's anything our organization does well, it's rehab guys.

maybe Jr could kill 2 birds with one Boone and sign him for the Bulls as well.

Perhaps a two year deal at minimum salary this year and a $2 million dollar option next year will do it.

If Harris fails as a 2B, then I don't have a problem with trying Boone as a reclamation rehab project at 2B.

I think that would be a great idea. We would probably be able to get him for cheaper than normal bacause he would be coming off an injury. Since I doubt Willie is going to do anything this year we may very well see this happen.

Not as cheap as you think, from Newsday:
"He'll be healthy again," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "He'll be able to play again. For that reason, there might be an issue we could work out that would be comfortable for both sides. And we'll continue having those discussions."

its a good idea if willie falls on his face, but if he is really commited to everything he does, why would he have jeapordized his career by going against his contract and playing basketball?

i'd take a risk on him but for the right price. a contract based on playing time and performance would be good.

Anyone remember a guy by the name of Robin Ventura?

I would love to see him here. I think Crede is going to be our 3rd baseman for a long time to come, and I think that Uribe may play short for a while. With Willie stinking up the place like most think he will, we may try to make a run at him depending on the price. I think a contract like the Yankee's gave him would be good though, just in case he decided to play B Ball again.

Who needs Boone when we have Juan Uribe?
