Imagine a team paying that price tag for a guy who prvious to last year never played a full season :-? Sounds like he will be going to New York 8-o

I don't know. I think Drew would be a perfect fit for the Yankees. He'd be a great cheerleader from the bench during your next uninspiring playoff run this coming season. ;-D

But seriously, although the Mets are no strangers to bad contracts King George and the Yankees would be the only team stupid enough to hand Drew a 5-year contract.

He won't get that either unless Yankees trade Posada and decide they need a catcher. :-b

Are you kidding? 50 mil for a Yankees backup is nothing. B-)

I don't know. I heard the Sox are looking for a great player to sit on their bench now that Nomar is gone.

For all the flak the Mets get about bad contracts, to be fair the Yankees are just as bad, but they spend twice as much so they can still win with the bad contracts.

Veritek has already reduced his demand to 4 years and $36 (?) million because he wants to give the Sox a "hometown discount" 8-o
