If the yankees are giving up Sheff I would think Prior or Zambrano are in the deal.

I'd be down with trading Sheff for some young talent...that would be sweet...I'd feel better about the future
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

JD Drew? Come on man, that's just dumb. A young outstanding fielder with speed for the top of the lineup in CF is exactly what the team needed.

"dumb", huh?

$10mil C.Beltran 7HR 1SB .285/.342/.444
$9mil JD.Drew 11HR 1SB .280/.402/.502
$9mil G.Anderson 7HR 0SB .322/.344/.478
$1.15mil B.Clark 6HR 6SB .323/.384/.444
$365K C.Crisp 7HR 6SB .285/.344/.477

Yeah, basing guys value on 2 and 1/2 months is much better than years and years of it.

Clearly you are correct - but paying big bucks because Scot Boras tells you too isn't the best idea either.

Using that as your argument further emphasizes how dumb that statement is. It's been what, 60 games and Drew has stayed healthy how many times? And he's as good in the field as Beltran? And he plays CF, the position the Yankees need desperately?

Give me a break.
