Fricking Gammons hits his head on the nitestand looking for his spit rag, gets a vision, and all the sudden its news ... ???

two huge problems here Petey ... can I call ya Petey ?..

1) Why would Chicago give up Frank Thomas for Jeff Weaver (already mentioned above)Because there contract are similar? ??Thats the only thing I can think of ..
2) After LA gets Frank Thomas... Who is going to play first for them. Certainly not Frank Thomas ...

Sorry Petey, now go back to bed .. :-°

Gammons said that others were involved in the deal, but didn't say who. I would hope the Yankees have to give up more than Weaver to get Frank Thomas!

If the Yanks do go after Brown, then they'll have to work a three-way deal, I think, because the Yanks won't trade Soriano, and the Dodgers need hitting.
I'm back. Sorta.

Maybe because Weaver is a very talented pitcher who gets paid under 10 million and Frank Thomas is an old DH?

Most GMs still think Weaver can be great. It's the New York think that he seems to have trouble with.

As a Yankee fan, I would much rather the Yankees keep Weaver, make him a starter, let him struggle if he does at all, and see what he can do, than to go get Brown. Weaver's been on the SP->RP->Minor League circuit for the Yanks. He never knows what his job is. It's understandable he has problems.

I still think he can be a solid #5 at a minimum for the Yanks, if they just let him be that.

Is Brown a better fanatsy pitcher in NY or LA. I think LA.

His wins will increase in NY but his ERA and WHIP may increase as well. There really is nowhere better to pitch than in the NL West with SD, LA and SF all being pitchers parks and the fact that NL pitchers face pitchers instead of DH's.

Anyone else care to weigh in?

I agree. Brown's era/whip would go up, and so would the wins if he goes to NY.

If he stays in LA, then the era/whip will be nice, but wins are a question.

Will Brown be able to stay healthy two seasons in a row?

I think you're right about LA being better for him fantasy-wise. He knows how to use good pitching ballparks, FLA, SD, and LA.


Anywho.....I've said it a million times, If Peter "Back" Gammons say's it, it WILL not happen. I'm not sure how the Schilling deal didn't get screwed up, but I guess thats a testimate to Theo.


And I'm just sure Frank Thomas would be SUCH a happy camper in a doders uni.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.
