The bottom line is that a good signing is a good signing, no matter what team did it.


Thats interesting cus the Yankees just signed a setup man for almost the same yearly contract, And I don't remember anybody being upset over that. I even went so far as to say it was a good sign by George. I called it 'couch change' but even you could agree, thats what it was. Oh and it was to keep Flash out of the division. ;-7

so the only other conclusion i could come to is .......



nope, I'm not gonna do it ... :-) :-)

No matter who or what you are referring to, my point still stands. If the Cubs signed LaTroy and the Yanks signed LaTray (fictional pitcher) for the same amount, the Yanks would get blasted by certain members of this board. That's what I was getting at.

I would also like to say that no matter what people say about them and their signings, the Yanks don't set the trends. They let other teams get stupid with their contracts and then they fall behind them. It might bite them in the a** sometimes (Pettitte) but you can't argue that.

I also stand by what I said earlier. Hawkins was a nice signing by the Cubs.

P.S. I like the fact that this was after the fact and you said almost. ;-D

This is what I was refering to .... The Yankees signed 'LaTray' (fictional player) 8-o .... and no one got pissed ..

3.5 million a year is 'couch change' for George....

The Cubbies did well here. Letry is a nice upgrade over Alfonseca and it allows the Twins some financial relief to resign Guardado.
I would NEVER vote Pete Rose into the Hall Of Fame
