Vladimir Guerrero wants the Yankees; Ibanez still considered

This headline would have been great for the Yankees, when Vladimir Guerrero was starting off as an Angel in Anaheim. Now at the age of 37, the former most valuable player is looking for a job and expressed interest in signing on to play designated hitter in the Bronx. Buster Olney first reported the news and adds that Raul Ibanez is still considered the favorite to sign.

After hitting .290/.317/.416 in 590 plate appearances for the Baltimore Orioles, he will definitely be looking for a bounce back season wherever he plays. The only question is how much pop is left in the bat for him.

If the Yankees were to sign him, it would primarily be used for his bat. But it would be nice to see a few throws like this from time to time. (Note: This was 2004. His MVP year.)


Guerrero is not a Yankees "style hitter" because he draws few walks

How about Robinson Cano being a Yankees "style hitter". Hahaha

I just don't like Vlad because he's not really that good anymore. Give me Johnny Damon.

It's funny Chris ... I knew someone would say that.
