 What will the New York Yankees outfield look like next season? Nick Swisher salutes the crowd during ‘roll call’ at the June 8, 2009 Yankee vs. Rays. For starters, CF Curtis Granderson and LF Brett Gardner will be back. The Yankees picked up Grandy’s 2013 option and Gardner is under team control till 2015 but is arbitration eligible. So that leaves GM Brain Cashman with a need in right field and a sub off the bench that need to be filled. The free agent options are not endless so lets start with what the Yankees already have, or had. NOT SO SWISHALICIOUS IN PINSTRIPES: You can bet that Nick Swisher will be gone as he wants a multi-year deal and some other team will give him one. Over his four years spent in the Bronx, Swisher hit 105 homers, 349 RBIs, drew 327 walks, 531 strikeouts and posted a .268 batting average. Unfortunately the last impression Swisher left was during the 2012 postseason where he had a .167 batting average, three RBIs, with 10-strikeouts and he made game chang...

  • If the Yankees were smart they would move Gardener to center and trade Granderson..they should get a younger professional hitting outfielder...a player who hits .280, 20-25 HRs and 85-90 RBIs and a top minor league prospect...the Yankees don't need a homerun or nothing hitter...the Yankees should re-think the possibility of signing a 37 yr. old outfielder, in Hunter...the Yankees need youth, not another older player...they should start taking a chance with their own minor leaguers..instead of letting them die on the vine.
  • Granderson isn't going anywhere, guys who can hit 40 hrs and drive in 100 runs don't grow on trees. Yankee fans have to get over the bad post season he had. Remember he wasn't the only one who stunk it up. They're gonna move Ichiro to right,(because he's not done), and Gardner goes back in left, Grandy stays in center. They'll have 2 leadoff caliber hitters at the top of the lineup with DJ and Ichiro and Gardner in the 8 or 9 slot. Swisher however is gone, he's a great team guy and a decent hitter but he's gonna ask way more than the Yankees are willing to pay for him.
