vazquez to the yankees...

Postby KDOGG » Thu Dec 04, 2003 8:49 pm

i dunno how much i like this deal. certainly they could have signed colon who i thought wouldve been a good fit in new york and they gave up nick johnson, who in my opinion would have overtaken giambi's first base job in the next few years. Obviously im happy that we have vazquez because he is a workhorse who will help bolster that yankee starting 5 but i think we could have filled the hole by different means. What do you guys think ?

The Yankees still have the option of trying to sign Colon. Getting Vaz doesn't stop that.

This is one trade the Georgie made that is good for baseball. IMO.

Vazquez is a top quality pitcher, don't get me wrong. But Johnson is going to help the Expos even more, if the wrist thing isn't a problem. I know that's a big IF, but it allows the Expos to possibly keep Vlad.

I think this allows the expos to stay somewhat competetive next season, and is good overall for baseball.

When Nick went down with wrist problems last year, the articles I read said he would battle wrist injuries his whole career. I'm waiting to see if he stays healthy next season.

The Yanks will sign a stiff like Delgado when Giambi is done, LOL. Does the George have Monopoly money or what??? As for the deal the Yanks did very well, Johnson who knows how good he will be he may never be healthy enough, Rivera is a solid player nothing special, and Choate is a lefty releiver not much there. as for Vazquez he had a huge year last year and has been solid throughout his career he is just now entering his prime. It looks like 3 lbs of hamburger for 1 lb of Porterhouse to me.

Oh George you've done it again!!

What does Giambi's knees have to do with the Expos?

The quote was that Johnson would help the Expos if his wrist isn't a problem.

I pointed out that it probably would be a problem for his entire career based on the articles that I've read.

What does that have to do with Giambi?

Well, now that Johnson is on the Expos, who's going to handle the 1st base job if Giambi can't hack it on a regular basis?
