We will revist this when we see how Chacon and Leiter are doing in a month. Some $hit will stick on the wall

Only "decent" pitcher available is Burnett and it looks like no one will pay a high enough price for the Marlins to move him. Yanks certainly are not going to pay even if they could the price the Marlins want for a rental.

Schmidt might be around also, but he is very expensive and has not pitched all that well either.

Be creative, re-aquire Vazquez. I hear that he's going to demand to be traded at the end of the season.

I understand that the Yanks are in tough shape, so I can't blame them throwing more stuff against the wall.

I just hope Embree's straight low 90s fastball stays straight and dead center over the plate. He has no offspeed stuff, so he needs that thing up higher, and at the corners.
I'm back. Sorta.

Some scouts claim that he's gotten better lately and is just a change of scenery away. Time will tell, but I know the Sox aren't happy that the Yankees ended up with him as opposed to anyone else.

Well we are not in the market for SPs with huge yellow streaks down their spinal column. Plus, rumor has it he wants to be traded to a Florida team so that he can more easily make the filming of his new film. He has the tilte role in the next Disney film "Bambi in the headlights".

Aside from the fact that Vazquez pitched like trash during his time in New York, how exactly would the Yankees accquire him? I'm pretty sure that if Arizona was willing to accept Melky Cabrera for him, he'd already be a Yankee. Arizona is still alive in the playoff hunt since they are in 2nd place and everyone in that division sucks. They haven't been sellers.

Yeah, I wish he had gone to Arizona or something like that. But, on the other hand, if this stops the Yanks from getting Villone, or someone like him, I'm all for it.

By the way, is it hard to forget that this guy closed out game 7 last year?

That's what's keeping me from thinking this is awful. Embree has been garbage this year but wasn't he pretty good in 2003 and 2004? I don't have the stats in front of me, but I'm pretty sure he put up good numbers with Boston. Maybe a change of scenery can help him regain at least a little bit of what made him effective in Boston over the past 2 years.

Well, he's lost like 5 miles per hour on his fastball, and for someone without a remotely good offspeed pitch, it's killing him.
