Kevin Brown's Future

Postby ajgnydc722 » Sat Dec 04, 2004 12:30 am

I've thought so much about getting this guy off the Yankees that I forget he's still on our roster. Are the Yankees going to trade him? Is he going to be in the starting rotation next year again? What do you see him doing in 2005 and for who?

I don't follow the Yankees much but every move they make or even think about making always makes a big splash. That being said I've heard nothing about Brown so far, so I assume he's going to be back in pin stripes in '05. :-?

My guess is that he remains with the Yankees. I think they'd like to move him but in order to do so they'd have to eat some of that contract. That's going to be a problem considering that the Yankees are working with limited financial flexibility this year and especially if they decide to go after Beltran.

On top of that, if the R.J. deal goes through and they lose Vazquez it might not be in their best interest to move him. Even if they sign Pavano or Milton. It's not too bad when your #3 or #4 pitcher is Kevin Brown. :-b

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

They would if they could. No one wants Brown and his contract. And paying some team most of the 15M to take him makes little sense either. I would love to see him gone. Vazquez too. Both are huge losers.

Vazquez is no Contreras. He is good, just not cut out for New York. If he makes it back to the National League he will end up with 10th - 15th overall best SP numbers next year.

Brown in his prime was definately no loser. His best days are long behind him, but he is still a decent #3 pitcher on any roster.

Only a Yankee's fan could complain about haveing those two :-D .

I'm not complaing about having them. I'd like to see Vazquez stay and despite what Brown has done, he showed some flashes of his prior greatness.

Vaz is no Contreras...the analogy is one with Mr. Weaver. CON-treras has no talent. Weaver did/does but was a gutless wonder who could not pitch under pressure. Vaz can go put up nice numbers with some 2nd division team ala Kenny Rogers over his career. Still is a loser and of no value to a contender.


As to Brown, he is years past his prime and outside of the 97 Marlins and pennant winning 98 Padres never won a thing. And he is also one of the dumbest idiots in MLB. Loser is the perfect term for the guy. He may not be as big a loser as someone like Vaz or Giambi, but he is still a loser.

The objective is to win not to collect talent that needs time to adjust to NY or get their heads straightened out and not stuck in their behinds. Brown will liekly stay because dealing him for anything notable money or player-wise is near impossible. Why pay someone 14 of Brown;s 15 M salary just to be rid of him?
Vaz still has value and shoul dbe shipped out before he completely implodes in 05 and becomes near worthless.

Very interesting article. That could be a topic unto itself.

Sheesh. It's no wonder people see Yankees fans and whining sniveling spoiled crybabies. Just last year they were saying the same about Mussina. :-t :-t :-t

Look at some other staffs and get a reality check. :-t
