The yankees already have a set rotation if if they don't get RJ, they are paying the Brown, Pavano, Vazquez, Brown, and Moose too much much to have Miller take on of their spots, while either Arroyo or Wake could go to the bullpen if Miller is healthy.
what sources are those !!??...he has a torn rotator cuff and elected not to have surgery and instead is "resting and rehabbing" and he was instructed not to throw until late december... $1.5 m is a fair price for a torn rotator cuff BUT this is a high risk signing that only a team w/ a $100m + budget can afford..the chances he wins 8 games for the redsox are the same as him not making it out of spring training

Just like the Mantei signing, this is a high risk/high reward move. Can't beat the price though ;-D

I'm also pumped because Wade is a PA boy like myself, as is Clement.

Now all they need is Moose to come on board and they'll have the keystone pitcher market locked up ;-7

Pedro had the same injury in 2001, I think, and only did rest and rehab as well. He did ok. And I don't think only a few teams can risk 1.5 million on a pitcher like Wade. Not when people like Arthur Rhodes are making $1.8 million.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

;-)

Remember what Theo has constantly said. We're not building our team to win the division. He acknowledges the Yanks will win 100-110 games a year. This is a huge signing on this basis:

Schilling - Johnson (assuming this gets done eventually, Adv Sox)
Wells - Mussina (advantage Yanks)
Clement - Pavano (advantage Yanks)
Miller - Wright (Advantage Sox)

The Yankees depth clearly makes them a better team over 162 games, but the addition of Miller gives the Sox the ALCS AGAIN!!!

First off, welcome to the forum. Its about time the Red Sox got some fans around here.

Second, I think you might be abit biased in the Schilling v Johnson matchup. ;-D

Hmm, I'm sensing tongue firmly in cheek on this one ;-)
To be fair though, I have noticed a lot of new Yankee fans popping up lately :-?
