No - let him rot in Houston, if being a Yankee is so important to him he should have stuck around 2 years ago.

If it were just taking on the salary, I'd love the deal, but that likely won't work. :-/


As much as it would be nice for the Yankees to develop some of their youngsters, they just don't work like that. I love the energy that he has brought to the team but no one knows if he is a long-term solution.

As a Red Sox fan, nothing pleases me more when the Yankees trade young talent for aging veterans. (Well, it's a close race with signing aging players instead of young superstars.)

I think Cano, Wang and Duncan would do it. ;-D
I'm back. Sorta.

funny that half of the people the respond to this are not Yankee fans. Just shows the continuation of an obsession with the Yankees by other teams and their fans :-°

Just posting my opinion. Trust me, I have an opinion on every team in baseball. You're not that special. :-D Anyway, it's not like we came here bashing the Yankees. This is a pretty interesting story that we all know is going to unfold as the deadline nears.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I was more referring to the comment of Trans, not yours. Sorry for lack of clarification

I'm with Amazinz. It's a story involving one of the greatest players any of us have ever seen or will ever see, so as a baseball fan of course I take an interest. The fact that it's the Yankees has no impact on my intereste whatsoever, but apparently that's just me. :-?

Well said. ;-D I've been thinking this for quite some time now.

What's wrong with my comment? Who's obsessed with whom here? The Yankees are my favorite team's biggest rivals; am I supposed to ignore them? Seriously. :-b

Well, in the Yankees defense, they have made an artform of overhyping their prospects to the extent that they can get a ton for them. I understand that a lot of the deals that they make are them taking on a lot of salary but their claim to fame used to be dumping prospects and watching them excel elsewhere. Can anyone name a prospect or 2 that the Yankees have traded away that has come back to bite them in the rump??

Depends what you call a prospect, and what you define as biting you in the rump. :-D

Mike Lowell comes to mind. Willy Mo Pena. Marte. All would be helpful on the Yankees now. Halsey is a good one, and Claussen could be half decent. I'm sure there are many more I'm forgetting.
I'm back. Sorta.
