THat looks like the right answer.

Seriously what would the Yanks give the Phils for Abreu? Propects? Ahhhahahahahahaha....... :-b

They dont have ANY pitchers that would improve the Phils enough for Abreu, and their bench is crap.

So that leaves starters. I'd take ARod for Abreu straight up, that would fill the hole at 3rd real nice like :-D , but I dont expect the George would.

The Yankees shouldnt make a trade. They are revuilding the farm system and shouldnt jeopardize their future for a small upgrade like shannon stewart

Philip Hughes.

But I wouldn't trade him, certainly not for Abreu. Besides for him, they have nobody.

I don't even consider Griffey a superstar anymore.

I'm not even sure he's a lock for the Hall of Fame at this point. I guess probably he does, but it's at least debatable, which is pretty amazing for a guy who used to be one of the '50 best players of the century'.. :-?

He's easily a HOFer, and a 1st ballot HOFer at that. That's not the point though. He won't likely be going anywhere soon.

Black Ink: Batting - 26 (68) (Average HOFer ~ 27)
Gray Ink: Batting - 160 (70) (Average HOFer ~ 144)
HOF Standards: Batting - 56.4 (41) (Average HOFer ~ 50)
HOF Monitor: Batting - 209.0 (34) (Likely HOFer > 100)

Overall Rank in parentheses.

He's cetainly in, but I wouldn't be suprised if he wasn't a 1st balloter. You know how funny they can be.




Who thinks Soriano could go back and why? I thought there was zero chance of that.

None of the above. The Yankees won't chase anyone.

They need pitching not hitting
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

The Yanks have Pavano coming back soon. He will help. My guess is Hunter

It all depends on how long Matsui is out. Remember, Sheff will likely be back before the end of may. If Matsui's on track to come back around the All-Star Break, they'll plug Bubba Crosby in there, and that still leaves Bernie and Cabrera as backups. Bubba's maturing into a decent everyday player.

If Matsui's out all year, that's another story, but I don't really see a big trade happening any time soon. In the meantime, I'll be wearing my "55" jersey with pride...
