What are the Yankees going to do about second base? They don't have Robinson Cano anymore, and the best option on the market, Omar Infante, just signed with the Royals, if you can believe that. What will they do? Twitter knows:
Alright #Yankees, I DO NOT WANT KELLY JOHNSON STARTING AT 2ND— Matt Provenzano (@mpro6294) December 13, 2013
Matt P. starts us off with some loud yelling.
If the Yankees seriously passed up signing Infante and go into the year with broke ass Kelly Johnson at second base, I'm going to be upset.— Joseph Giampapa (@JosephGiampapa) December 13, 2013
I know I will be, how about you guys? Let's get some ideas rolling:
Well Since the #Yankees missed out on Omar Infante Now and we didnt Trade for Phillips looks Like Johnson at 2B or Stephen Drew via FA— Chris (@Christeam3232) December 14, 2013
But do we want to give up any more draft picks for Stephen Drew? They have already lost a total of three picks as it is.
Another round of Yankees Hypothetical: Straight platoon at 2B...Kelly Johnson and Brian Roberts. Thoughts? #Yankees— Billy Brost (@Billy_Brost) December 14, 2013
Eh, I don't know. Brian Roberts is never healthy, and also neither of those players can hit lefties very well.
Just a thought for Yankees 2B....Mark Ellis 1 yr deal, platoon w/ Kelly Johnson...address long term after 2014 season— Jared Moore (@MrJaredMoore) December 13, 2013
Not a bad idea at all. Ellis hits lefties well, Johnson hits righties. It could work.
I'm available to platoon with Kelly Johnson Yankees.— blake (@TarYank6) December 13, 2013
In that case, aren't we all?
Cant wait for the 2B: Kelly Johnson, SS: Jeter, 3B Nunez #Yankees infield, you guys.— Joshua. (@J_Nubz) December 13, 2013
