No thank you.


Agreed. I want no part of Pierre.


IMO the Yankees would be lucky to get Pierre for Pavano. Regardless, it's all pointless to discuss because I don't see any reason the Yankees would actually deal away one of their starters.

It would most likely be good for Pavano's fantasy value if he goes almost anywhere else. Something to keep an eye on.

I can answer for me...

...because Pierre isn't that good. I don't really care who we have in CF just so long as they can play defense. They don't need Johnny Damon. They don't need Juan Pierre. Why overspend on a guy like that when you can find a solid defesive player pretty much anywhere? They don't need the offense.

I'd rather sign a cheap fill-in or try out that kid Thompson before I trade away what little prospects I do have for a player like Pierre.

Cardinals would probably be interested in Pavano, but not sure they have parts the Yankees would want. Seems counter-productive to do this, however. Stop throwing more pitchers in the NYY rotation, let the one's you have get accustomed to the role and learn it that way. Otherwise, the Yankees will just be adding another young pitcher into a tough situation who will fail.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Judging by some responses, it's apparent that Pierre is going to be extremely undervalued going in to next year. Looks like I'll be targetting him in all leagues.

This is Real baseball we're talking here. It's entirely different with respect to Pierre.

And dy, my reasons are the same on not wanting him.

I agree... in real baseball, Pierre is horrible.

A .300+ lifetime hitter who scores 100 runs a year (in the NL)? Yeah, no way I would want him on my real life team. ;-7
