Vlad Makes His Pitch to the Yanks

With Jorge Posada no longer in the Bronx and Jesus Montero taking his promise to Seattle...the New York Yankees have, seemingly, been left without a designate hitter.

But, according to ESPN's Buster Olney...there's one slugger out there that's stumping hard for the gig.

Vladimir Guerrero has made it known to the Yankees that he wants their DH spot. IMO, Raul Ibanez still the frontrunner to sign w/NYY as DH.

Currently, the Yankees have Andruw Jones slated to be their Opening Day DH, but, honestly, I wouldn't be so sure that it doesn't, at some point, end up as Alex Rodriguez's job.

But as far as Jones, Guerrero or Ibanez as your full-time DH?  It's a potential wash if you ask me.  However, you're the New York Yankees, Yankees...why not just get all three under contract and go from there.

And in case any of you were wondering...I'm available as well.
