I thought Helton specifically said he didn't want to go to NY.

That could be true. I missed it if it was said. All I know that there are cases where he'll waive the clause.

HA! Good stuff, Mr. Jerky. ;-D

Only thing I could imagine is the Yanks trying to keep Helton out of Boston. Although I don't really see where Boston was planning on playing Helton with Youkilis at 1B and DH taken.


I just pray someone takes Farnsworthless. I can't stand him and any deal getting rid of him would be very impressive.


Fuentes would obviously help this team a lot. Myers should be done pitching to Ortiz by now.

is it smart for the Yankees to bring in someone like Helton?
as someone who doesnt like the Yankees i say go for it.. another aging vetran with an unmovable contract.
sure Helton has been having a nice year so far, but i dont buy it lasting. the previous 2 seasons hes been a better hitter in Colorado(surprise 8-o ) so going to NY, would he be the same, or worse?
plus what it would take to get Helton and/if Fuentes.. im guessing young players.
so maybe the Yankees will be getting even older and trading away young players.. yeah good move ;-D
if the Yankees were smart, they would forget about bringing in aging vetrans, unless they get them real cheap.. and i dont think Helton and Fuentes will or should come cheap.

i personally hope Fuentes doesnt get traded, unless its somewhere else to close because hes the only real top tier closer i have.

it would be pointless for the rox to move helton for giambi. why move a bad contract for an even worse one while clogging up a spot on the field. the whole point of moving helton would be to get baker in at 1st and get some prospects.

helton and fuentes

for

clippard, tabata, farnsy

i think this is what it would take to get the deal done. fairly steep price but clippard is nothing more than a #4 pitcher in the AL. tabata could replace tavereas in time. farnsy just to have a power arm in the bullpen...
