I'm surprised the Yanks didn't give him a run at that price. Wang+minor prospect such as Tim Battle may have done the trick. Wang+Melky Cabrera would've certainly been more than enough.


Why? Yanks would have to pay him 10M plus and they already have Cano. He can;t and/or won't play CF. Why trade for someone like that when he does not fit the teams needs?

Besides, Clueless Brian is too busy sitting on his hands or signing downgrades to his bullpen to be concerned with this sort of thing. Right now I am sure he is contemplating the wisdom of Bubba Crosby vs Jacque Jones. Or whether he should bring back Nuclear Al for a left specialist role.


Money's never an issue with the Yankees...and I'm sure he could be convinced to play 2B eventually if he has to. Would he rather play CF for the Yanks or 2B (is he, even or is Vidro?) for the Nats?


It doesn't really matter because he doesn't fit their needs. They need a CF who can play defense. And if they are going to add another bat, it shouldn't be another hacker who doesn't get on base enough.

Wang is much too high a price to pay for a guy who won't fit any of the Yankees needs.

great trade. :-b yeah id love to be in a money keeper league with you. money in the bank for me. pedro for street, soriano. wow.

probably gona be soriano/guillen. i can hear them both complaining when the both keep flying out to the warning track.

Street's not a keeper beyond one year, and Sori just got sent to Hitter Hell. Pedro will likely out-perform both of them next year (combined it should be closer), and I figure he's got at least 2 more years in addition as a "top 4 rounds" guy. Once you account for the format of the league, eftda made a really good move.

I was thinking, what will the Nationals do with Vidro? I was thinking he could be a sleeper this year.

I could see Vidro moving to Oakland for a pitcher.

That's what happens when you raise ticket prices and only draw 4 million fans....and have to pay Kevin Brown and Pavano and Wright and Womack and Tino and Posada and RJ to all underperform.

unless he made the trade today, he traded soriano, who at the time was the top 2b, AND street for pedro. lets face it, how many more years does pedro have left in him? 1 or 2? unless street falls off the map, he's an upper-teir closer and soriano should still hit in rfk, they may not be top 2b numbers, but the park wont hold him out of top 3. we know what pedro's arm is, and he's gona pitch in the WBC. who knows how much more wear his arm can take. too much of an injury risk if you ask me.

Nats already said Soriano is headed to left. Vidro is staying at 2b.

Theres no way you keep Street for 2007 in a 4 player (+1 rookie) keeper league. Come on...
