Wow nice catch! We'll see!!! I hope they get Armas - he's damn good.

sorry guys, Armas missed his start due to right shoulder stiffness, as reported on the expos web site, but it was a good catch.

Odalis Perez put on the special juice when he faced Bosox this year... he personally requested to move his start back so he wont miss the bosox 3-game series. Hows that for a catch...

Benson wouldn't be much better than either Lieber or Contreras (who's in for another big 2nd half IMO....mid 2 ERA last year starting in 2nd half).

I think they should go after a CF that can cover some ground (even if it means sacrificing offense -- which given Lofton's not done much wouldn't be too difficult).

That would help their starters just as much as getting new starters entirely.

Now that Beltran is off the market I don't really know what good CF is available. I'm happy enough with Bernie there. Hopefully the Yankees can trade for a decent young SP to fill into the 4th or 5th spot in the rotation.

Beltran, P. Wilson, A. Jones, and Maggs would be my first guesses.

Asked about recent published reports that said the Yankees were interested in Colorado outfielder Preston Wilson or Arizona infielder Roberto Alomar, Cashman reiterated, "I have no interest in anything other than pitching."

I think the Yankees will wind up with Russ Ortiz. He's in his option year, and by the end of July, the Braves could well be out of the picture.

They are turning quickly into a small market team, payroll wise, and I don't think they'll have the $$$ to re-sign Ortiz. So I think the Yankees make sense.
