Rangers give Soriano for Wang and Cano? Yanks Say No

Postby acsguitar » Fri Jul 01, 2005 3:50 pm

Check the end of this quote.....Its from this link http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/s ... index.html




According to several industry sources, the Yankees would love to put A's outfielder Mark Kotsay in between Hideki Matsui and Gary Sheffield, a move that would considerably tighten up the defense and theoretically improve a suspect pitching staff... The Rangers asked for starting pitcher Chien-Ming Wang and Robinson Cano for Alfonso Soriano and were politely told 'No.'



Ok Cano and Wang seem to be great young players but Soriano is a pimp...I'd do that deal if I were the yanks...That would be one of the best infields around..of course they don't need another bat but It would be nice to see Soriano back

You're insane if you'd do that.

I wouldn't do it myself, and I'm glad to see the Yankees exercise restraint in dealing their prospects for once.

I've said it before, but if Cano gets traded, almost no matter who for, I'm going to lose it %-6

Understandable, but that doesn't go along with the current philosophy does it? Or are we seeing a change?

As much as I liked Soriano (for a while), I like it better when he's chasing low-and-away sliders a foot off the plate in a different uniform. ;-D

I think we're seeing a change otherwise both of them would be wearing different uniforms by now.

What are you talking about? The team realizes it needs to look ahead and with Gene Michael's opinion mattering again, they'll excercise more restraint with their youth.

they're both solid players but neither of them are amazing... unless George really is starting to stagger under the crushing weight of his wallet, i really don't see why this is such a bad deal for the yanks....

Do you realize that not every baseball fan is alerted to Yankee happenings as quickly as you? There are how many other teams out there? I know the media revolves around the Sox and Yanks on the East Coast, it's much different in Oregon. Have some understanding. It's what I'm trying to do ;-D

Alright. Point taken. It's just been all over hear that I'd have thought you'd have known.
