I guess it's final: The Yanks will be BUYERS before the trade deadline...

It will probably be Dan Giese for now, not exactly someone worth rushing out to add to your fantasy team. Of the Yankees' AAA pitchers, the one with the best chance to be an impact fantasy player is Alan Horne.

I think if the Yankees make a trade, it will be within the next two weeks. They can't afford to wait until the deadline with ticking timebombs like Rasner, Mussina and (probably) Giese in the rotation. And of course the problem with going after CC now is that Cleveland's in a bad division and may not view themselves out of playoff contention yet. I've been listening to local sports radio and Bronson Arroyo's named was brought up and that made me throw up a little.

Seriously, the opposite argument could be made. Shoot, he even says it: They're not used to doing it.

Maybe that means they should get rid of the DH. O:-) :-D

I have him in a 16 team auction keeper league; luckily I have four DL spots and can stash him. He's likely going to be a keeper for me anyways at $1 (got him in the initial draft two years ago for that price), and hopefully he'll come back later in the year and make some solid contributions.

As for my 12 team league, he's already off my team. Can't afford to stash him with three others injured and only one DL spot. :-t

With the money people are paying ptichers now I don't think they should be batting. The chance of them getting hurt running the bases or getting hit by a pitch in the hand, etc...doesn't make sense for guys who are being paid in the upwards of $10 million a year.

Does anyone know how many times a pitcher has actually been DL'd as a result of a hitting/base running incident? I'm curious to know how big, or small, of an issue it really is. I've started a thread on Steinbrenner's comments in baseball leftovers.
