The Yankees have agreed on a deal to buy Al Leiter from the Marlins, Newsday reports. is still saying another player is involved in the deal, but according to Newsday, it's a cash transaction, with the Yankees sending about $250,000 to Florida and paying about $150,000 of what the left-handed is still owed this season. The deal is expected to become official today, allowing the Yankees to start Leiter tomorrow against the Red Sox.

Thank god someone can pitch on Sunday now. :-°

I can't say I'm not relieved. :-° Guess we'll see what he can do, we know he can pitch in the NY spotlight.

It's pretty cool they were able to just go out and get a pitcher for a few hundred grand like that, even if he's a dud.

I know it's only one start but Leiter looked good tonight. Looked like the Leiter of old. Just too bad we lost Wang. A rotation of RJ, Mussina, Pavano, Leiter and Wang would not have been bad. 2 lefties in the rotation which we hadn;t had since Petite and Wells. Time for the Yanks to make a run. GO Yanks! :-)

I'm willing to give Redding a shot tomorrow, although I'm braced for the worst. Only upside is that the Red Sox aren't too familiar with, which gives him atleast a decent shot to give the Yankees to win.

Completely wrong on both accounts. Congrats to Leiter for pulling through, he proved me wrong. Hopefully he can keep it up.
