Keppinger is mentioned also. He would command less from yanks, frees up more money than beckham and would open up 3rd for Davidson. I see DeAza and or Keppinger being dealt, the Sox arent going to want bench players making money on this club.

I hope I'm wrong, but I really don't see much hope of moving either Keppinger or De Aza. I'd love for the Sox to be able to unload either or both.

I'd like to see Beckham traded to the Yanks for Pineda and Murphy. I am hoping Semien is our new 2nd baseman.

Didn't the Yankees sign Brian Roberts to play second? I thought I saw something on TV that he is expected to be their everyday guy at 2B.

Can anyone give a thumbnail on these four Yankee catchers for those of us less in the know? Who's the best defender? Who's the best hitter? Any of them do both well?

They did, but Roberts has only played a total of 192 games the past 4 seasons so I would assume they are anticipating he will not be available for a large chunk of the upcoming season.

Yeah. An average of 48 games a season doesn't exactly inspire a lot of confidence in his dependability.

Can you do us a favor and shut down that GIF in your sig before the Yankees change their minds?

They don't have any catchers in the minors worth Beckham. That's selling low. Beckham showed some improvement, too.
We also don't have a 2B on the roster that's ready. The young guys need more time in the minors, and Keppinger would deteriorate our defense.

Keppinger for a catcher? Sure.

This is how I feel as well. Keppinger is the guy you want to move. He simply doesn't have a place on this team anymore and is blocking the younger Matt Davidson or even Conor Gillaspie from playing time. A 33 year old veteran "super utility" who is on the decline and has two years remaining on his contract is definitely the one you want to move. Perhaps Keppinger's infield versatility would interest the Yanks and his contract is a drop in the bucket for them. I'd rather keep the 27 year old Beckham and hope he rebounds now that he is healthy rather than trade him for the Yankees 3rd best catcher.

How is it selling low on Beckham when he's already given you a 5 year sample size of bad along with clocking on arbitration years?

It's get what you can for him at this point.
