How about this juicy little Gammons nugget

There is no way the Yanks move Soriano to the Royals or the Expos. He is arbitration eligible after this following season. There is no way in hell either team could afford to keep him beyond next year. They will move Nick Johnson for some pitching, hopefully package him with Juan Rivera (Vlad will be gone) and get back Javier Vasquez. They will move Soriano to the outfield with Matsui and Williams. They can't move Boone to 2nd base because they still need a leadoff hitter and I don't know of any leadoff third basemen. Luis Castillo's hip scares me. Any suggestions for a leadoff hitter/2nd basemen?

And NY fans think the systems fair? What a list.

Almost without hesitation, Gammons stated that he thinks Soriano WILL be gone, either packaged with Nick Johnson to Montreal for Vazquez and Vidro OR to KC for Beltran.

Starting to sound more and more like Soriano might not be in NY next season.

Affect his fantasy status at all?


Well KC, is the AL Coors. It will help anyone. Beltran will be hurt leaving KC. His slits are enormous.

well maybe george will realize that he should ease up on his boys and keep most of the same team intact with maybe just some minor things added here and there. hell realize that his team trys hard and that he should become a nicer human being.



or maybe thats just my 3 lacrosse concussions speaking....

Why can't a 3B leadoff? I've never seen a rule that stated no 3B can bat leadoff.

I wasn't one of them. Dunn leading off was kinda funny to me. :-b

Boone could leadoff. I'm just confused as to why his defensive position makes a difference to our "Guest".
