I wouldn't mind seeing Dellucci back with the Yankees.

Nope. On Friday Mark Attansacio and Lee's agents had talks about extended his contract. Unlikely to happen, but probably not going to the Yankees. Think about what Mark got back from the Sexson deal...

I wouldn't be so sure about the Brewers being out of it in July. While they are only at .500 now, their pythagorean win/loss record is tops in the NL central.

When he tanked to get traded out of Milwaukee, I would assume. He's probably pissed the Yankees haven't picked up his option.

It's Griffey out of these 3 even though he won't be here. Cincy will have to trade their guys because nobody is coming to the game....

That was 15 years ago....

And don't people remember what sheffield did last year when the yanks were talking about trading him...

He took less money to stay with the Yankees, he wants to be here.

I don't think that is what nsulham meant though...

He took less money? Says who?

The offseason Sheff signed Vlad signed at $14MM per and Vlad is a lot younger and had equal production as Sheff. Find anything that says Sheff had a higher offer. Try.

"Shef claimed that he made "compensations" to come to the Yanks about 4.5 million worth and if he's traded he wants that money."

Thats what i was referring to. Not sure of other team offers, just remembered that last year sheff said he took less money so he could come here.
