Ok, I saw it now. The odd part is that the article makes it look like an interesting deal. 8-o

Here's an update:

Kevin Brown - S - Los Angeles Dodgers Dec 2

Newsday reports that the Dodgers and Yankees are talking about a Kevin Brown-for-Jeff Weaver swap.
A $14.25 million savings over two years wouldn't be enough to make this a fair one-for-one deal for the Dodgers. If the Yankees throw in Nick Johnson, however, maybe something could happen. Sources told Newsday that Brown would have no problem waiving his no-trade clause to join the Yankees. Source: Newsday


Not a surprise there.

I can feel it:
"One season after being traded to the L.A. Dodgers, Jeff Weaver's earned run average plummets from 5.99 to 2.39."

I agree with that as well.

Chavez is great for pitching and terrible for hitters.

As a Sox fan I'm all for this deal. Yanks lose a great young hitter in Johnson and eat $15 mil for a 39-year old with a laundry list of injury problems, all but guaranteeing no Vazquez in pinstripes.

Then again who knows with Boss Hogg :-?
