The Yankees made the Raul Ibanez signing official today. I'm kinda "meh" on his addition. He should still hit decently against RHP and can - unlike Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui - play the field (not well, mind you, but he can still play). Damon is currently a better hitter, but considering he wanted around $5M, signing him (a platoon DH) didn't make sense. And while Matsui might've been willing to take the $1.1M Ibanez got (and is a comparable hitter), he's barely an outfielder anymore either. Ibanez has played at least 129 games in the outfield each of the last six seasons; he brings more versatility.
