Rumor this weekend was the Yanks were interested in Wiggington, and were theoretically willing to part with Scott Proctor. I think that would be a steal to land Proctor, but I don't think the Yanks are that dumb. Don't get me wrong, I think Wiggington is OK, but Proctor is a stud MR.
As for this past weekend, we just don't have a complete team. What good is scoring 8 to 10 runs a game when the bullpen gives it back plus 10 more? With CC hurt, Jamie and Aki were bound to come back to earth, and Rocco's absence in the lineup is really starting to show. Recipe for bigtime losses.
We are not going anywhere this year, but with Evan hopefully coming up in September along with Niemann, we'll get a good glimpse of another couple of young studs to add to the lineup. Don't forget if all goes well, Price may be up the second half of '08.
We've got good young arms on the farm that we could package for some real relief, and like raiders said, maybe a free agent signing or two could make "wait 'till next year" really mean something.
