ESPNEWS just reported that Boras said the deal isn't done yet.
I'm back. Sorta.

I'm trying to think of another good move they have done. Lets see.....Strawberry, Eric Davis, Brown, Carlos Perez, FREAKING Darren Dreifort, letting Sheffield AND Piazza out of town.....


Congrats on the Dodgers first good deal.....EVER! ;-D


Don't forget about taking Hundley off our hands.....that was a good move by the Dodgers.... ;-)

Yankee fans were crying in WS, why did Torre bring Weaver in? Now, that he's moved, Yank fans are crying over Jeff again?

Yeah, I'll bet the farm that Schilling has a healthier year than Brown. Pedro is another story.

I didn't read all the posts on this thread but I would just like to say that I will be looking to get Weaver in this year's draft. LA is an awesome park to pitch in and his numbers should show it. I look for Kevin Brown to break down by the allstar break.

Brown while overpriced will put up better #'s than Pettitte will. What was all the hype over AP anyway? Always a decent pitcher but has had the luxury of pitching with one the all time dominant teams (relative to their era) since he entered the bigs. His ERA and WHIP have always been a little high for my tastes and now he plays in one of the top hitters parks in baseball. If Kevin Brown stays healthy he can contend for the AL CY. His ERA may take a little hit but I expect it to be around 3.3 and with the Yankees offense 20 wins should be a given. Of course staying healthy is the key which is why he's a little of a gamble, ok a big gamble. The way I see it is that the Yanks have three potential 20 game winners in Brown, Vasquez, and Moose, a decent fourth guy in Contreras, and some questionable choices at the number 5 spot. Thats without taking Wells into consideration( because I don't know what his situation is).

They just need to dump some pitching $$ so they can spend some hitting dollars. A mental and cheap Jeff Weaver is better than a 38 year old potentially-DL'ed Kevin Brown, especially with their poor excuse for an offense. PLUS they get cash and a few farmhands. ;-D

Best deal they have since :-? ...........well............ :-? :-?

Exactly! mtarail caught me on that on page 2 of this post...and I fell on the proverbial sword. So they have made a few decent ones.....and a WHOLE lot of bad signings/trades. Usually Montreal owns us in trades.....
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.

NYY signed him to a minor league deal.

Sounds like someone is still bitter about Pedro. Lasorda said he wasn't big enough to be an ace.
