Yankees Give Aaron Small $1.2 Million/One Year Contract; Chacon up Next
Tuesday, January 24, 2006
Cashman is a sensitive soul

The Yanks successfully avoided arbitration with Small by agreeing to a one year deal worth $1.2 million. Although his asking price was higher, Smally, as Torre affectionately calls him, can also earn up to $80,000 more in bonuses next season.

Now that Smally is squared away, Chacon is the next name on Cashman’s arbitration list. Chacon’s $4.15 million asking price is miles away from the Yankees offer of $3.1 million offer, so it will be interesting to see what sort of salary + bonuses Cash and the gang come up with for Shawn. Yankees Chick Prediction: $3.3 million plus the chance to earn one million more in bonuses. Caveat: bonus requirements include 300 mph fastballs and record-breaking sunflower seed spitting distances.

    Chick...I've been wondering why they wouldn't be interested in Piazza all Winter...even in his declining years and having to Catch FAR more than he should be expected to last year, he had better power numbers than ANY other catcher based on At/Bats (same number of homers as Jorge playing in spacious Shea). The Yankees DIED last year with the pathetic Flaherty playing once a week and Stinett is simply not a serious upgrade but Piazza playing TWICE a week behind the plate would only make Jorge more valuable at this stage of his career AND when Mike is hot he can grab At/Bats at DH. The defensive issue is not important given this scenario since the additional offensive output of a Piazza would CERTAINLY be more valuable than any slight defensive advantage a small time guy like Stinett has and who would be a more threatening presence in a big game at Fenway? They should have signed him in November, give him 325 at bats and smile!
