What would you consider cheap?


I'm not gonna talk for him, but I would assume that ~$7M is okay.

I'm not a huge Yankees fan, but everybody who is not a fan of the Yankees will bash on any player they sign, big name or not, because of their utter despise for the Yanks. When the most hated team in MLB makes a move, then all the haters come out in full force to bash it in the hope that the bashing will be justified in the player's performance for the Yanks. Yankees fans need to have a thick hide, because you are the fans of the greatest team in MLB history, and are hated for it by all the other non-Yankee fans.

i think if Nomar does go to the Yankees, it makes me like his value for this season even more. He's still eligible at SS, and 3B. I would love it if all he had to do was DH. Less chance for injury, and more chance for offensive production within one of the best offensive lineups in baseball.

No particular order:
A-Rod
Sheffield
Jeter
Matsui
Giambi
Cano
Posada

I'll draft him late when i'm looking for backups without hesitation.

And then, just to round it out, they need to trade Cano, Wang and a prospect to Baltimore for Tejada and shift him to 2nd.

3rd to 1st: A-Rod, Jeter, Tejada, Nomar. Priceless.

Because the signing could help the Jays while it wouldn't help the Yankees (on another note, if it's for 7 Million a year, screw it, Nomar is worthless).

The Yankees don't need more offense, that wasn't their problem last year, pitching was. The Jays do need another bat, and they could use someone who plays 3B and SS, for the Jays Nomar would meet a need, while for the Yankees, he would not.

Anyway, if the offer to Nomar was for 7 million, than it doesn't matter anyway. He's just not worth that much.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

No, I understand that. It's the nature of the criticism. I said the Jays would be overpaying for an old, oft-injured player. I got lambasted for it. Here, everybody is saying it.

Whether or not the Jays need him doesn't change that anybody who signs him will be overpaying, or that he's going to get hurt.

wait so just because the Jays NEED him more, it makes him healthy and ready to go, but because he'll split time with giambi at 1st he'll be worthless? interesting... :-?

nomar wont sniff 7 mil. max i can see him getting is 5 mil a season, and he'll probably get a 3 mil deal lined with a lot of incentives. this is a good deal for the yankees. im not sold yet on him playing 1b because they're carrying andy phillips for backup. i think they're just going to try to ease him into center field if he can prove he can stay healthy.
