NYY sign Quantrill

This is going to be a very expensive bullpen.

Reliever's deal worth $6.8 million

ESPN.com news services
The Yankees ironed out a contract with a free-agent reliever for the second time in three days, agreeing Wednesday with right-hander Paul Quantrill on a two-year deal worth $6.8 million, ESPN's Peter Gammons reports.


New York and veteran Tom Gordon agreed Monday night on a two-year contract for $7.25 million.


Meanwhile the Yankees, who began their string of agreements Sunday with a three-year deal for free-agent outfielder Gary Sheffield, and the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to mull a Jeff Weaver-for-Kevin Brown trade.


In other Gammons' reporting Wednesday on the free-agent front:



Outfielder Jeffrey Hammonds will receive a one-year deal with incentives to remain with the San Francisco Giants.



Outfielder Raul Mondesi and catcher Benito Santiago are close to signing with the Kansas City Royals.


On the Brown front, Dodgers sources told The Los Angeles Times that the veteran right-hander is open to a trade to a team closer to his offseason home in Macon, Ga.


According to The Times' report Wednesday, sources said Brown's agent Scott Boras recently informed general manager Dan Evans that Brown would waive his no-trade clause to join the Yankees.


Evans declined to comment on his talks with Boras.


"Kevin Brown is a Dodger and he has every intention of fulfilling his contract," Boras told The Times, adding "all I will say is that if an opportunity presented itself, the only way he would consider waiving his no-trade clause would be because of his family.


"... The fact that anyone who knows Kevin knows how important his wife and children are to him and how difficult it is for him to be away from them during the season, that's the only way he would consider something like that."


Though he hasn't demanded a trade, sources told The Times, he has the right to as a player with at least 10 seasons in the majors and five with one team. Brown was 14-9 last season with a 2.39 ERA, second-best in the NL, and 185 strikeouts in 211 innings.


Brown turns 39 in March and is guaranteed to make $15 million in each of the next two seasons, which makes him a risk considering the major injuries to his elbow and back suffered in recent seasons.

I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Now the question is: Who will have a higher salary? The Devil Rays or the Yankees bullpen?

How about the question: What team will again spend a ton of money and not even come close to making the playoffs again?

You can't complain about the Yankees for spending without looking in the mirror first

On topic, Quantrill is a good pickup for the Yanks ;-D The bullpen is looking MUCH better now:

Quantrill
Heredia
White
Karsay
Gordon
Mr. Automatic

Hammond will likely be traded if possible
