2012 Yankees Keep Em’ Or Dump Em’ Results (So Far)

Last Saturday, I posted a Keep Em’ or Dump Em’ article where you voted who you wanted to keep or who you wanted to dump. The results…weren’t very surprising. Let’s break down who you’d strongly keep and who you’d strongly throw away.

Keep Em’

David Robertson (96.83%): David Robertson wasn’t as good as he was in 2011, but he was still very effective in 2012. Let the good pitching keep on going, D-Rob.

CC Sabathia (95.59%): CC Sabathia coming back in 2013? No brainer. He’s the ace. The workhorse. He’s CC. Enough said.

Derek Jeter (95.33%): It’s not a surprise that fans would want to keep Derek Jeter after a great 2012 season but after his ankle injury where he had surgery, going into the future you wonder if Jeter can continue to play SS or if he might have to go to the DH Spot.

Hiroki Kuroda (94.12%): For his first year in the American League East, Kuroda did a good job. If Ichiro re-signs with the Yankees, Kuroda would have to be a no-brainer to follow.

Brett Gardner (93.55%): So Brett Gardner proved that you don’t have to play in order to be extremely valuable to the Yankees. After seeing Cirque Du Left Field in 2012, Yankees fans can’t wait to get their speedy outfielder back into playing shape and defending LF like we know he can.

David Phelps (91.18%): In his first rookie year with the Yankees, Phelps was back and forth from the bullpen to the starting rotation. For a first year–he did good. Would be great to see him get a shot in the rotation in 2013.

Andy Pettitte (91.04%): Andy sure was dandy in 2012, so there’s no question why he’s on the Keep Em’ list. I’d bring back Andy too. Who cares if Andy’s 40 years old? He still pitches like he’s 25!

Boone Logan (90.63%): Boone Logan being in the category where players were to be strongly kept surprised me just a tad bit. But hey. Boone Logan was good in 2012. Can he do it all over again in 2013?

Ichiro Suzuki (90%): Ichiro was a mid season trade for the Yankees. A mid season trade that made Brian Cashman look like a pure genius after a plethora of failure trades (hint, hint: Javier Vasquez, Curtis Granderson, A.J Burnett). Ichiro might come back to the Yankees next season–if you guys were the GM and not Cashman. Honestly, I’d like Ichiro back to. No doubt about it.

Eduardo Nunez (89.93%): Eduardo Nunez is (almost) the perfect back up shortstop. He can run and he can hit. Why he’s not perfect? He can’t field. Hopefully Winter Ball will help him in 2013.

Dump Em’

Freddy Garcia (95.59%): Look at the number of people that don’t want Freddy Garcia. I can’t explain that any further.

Andruw Jones (91.94%): After the terrible 2012 season he had, I can see why Yankees fans wouldn’t want him back in 2013. He says he wants to keep playing. Unfortunately, it’s not with this team.

Nick Swisher (85%): Nick Swisher had a good 2012 regular season but consistent playoff failures according to Yankees fans could be what ultimately sends Nick Swisher and his smiling face–out the door.

Derek Lowe (80%): Derek Lowe could be a great starting pitcher (or bullpen) pitcher for any team–but according to fans, it won’t be with the Yankees.

Alex Rodriguez (70%): Let’s admit it. A-Rod’s contract could possibly be the worst contract in baseball history. He’s deteriorating…and the Yankees still have to give him $110 Million dollars in the next 5 years.  Does any team want A-Rod? Going once? Going twice?

* Not all players from the poll are listed. Just the ones that fans strongly wanted to keep and wanted to get rid of.

  1. it is actually 114 million mininum for arod over next 5 years,……. plus bonus money for hitting marks— cant get a real explanation anywhere on how the bonus money works in the contract.

    but as i showed earlier today,……. in comparison to wllie mays at the same age, the past 5 seasons,…… arod simply does not measure up

    the worst contract in baseball history,….

    and just before the economy tanked,…..spoorts analts on tv were talking abouit high contracts going up to 40 million a year

    now that seems insane and will never happen anytime soon

    players are gonna cap out at 20 million a year,….. probably less

  2. by the way, cablevision settled its dispute with the tribume company last night,….. so i get back wpix 11 and wphl 17—– to late for the mets though

    but i didnt realize tied into this dispute was 50,000 cablevision customers in conneticut, where tribune company owned the fox affiliate tv station– the only fox those people had acees too,…… leaving them not getting the nfl on fox the first 8 weeks,.. as well as missing the first 2 games of the world series

    guess no one in conneticut that has cablevision,. is a customer of this website.

    the p[-ower of the world series, got the dispute settled,.. much like in 2010 when cablevision had a direct dispute with fox owned fox affiliates

  3. JIM GETS WPIX 11 BACK,’

  4. and ant tv,….. which is wpix owned that shows shows like dragnet, adam 12, the monkees, the partridge family, swat,.. and many others, with movies mixed in in the mornings,….. i just saw my first dragnet episode in months, lol

    i was totally suprised in the news artricle today to find out that fox doesnt own all its own affiliates,…. that the fox station servicing parts of conneticut is owned by Tribune.

    my fox here wasnt affected in this current dispute, but theirs was in conneticut
