Agree with wrveres, I don't think the Yankees really concern themselves with future talent. They know they can go out and buy a starting rotation next year.

Then the Yankees will trade back for him. The rest of the league is just a Yankees farm system, didn't you know? :)

The thing is that Boone becomes a free agent after this season ....

I can only hope he hates playing in New York and wants to play on the same team as his brother again. I think if the Mariners had been able to pull off that trade they probably could've signed him to a new contract.

They Yankees don't have to worry about signing him. They can throw money at whoever is available. The can definitely win a Boone bidding war if they feel the need.

[quote="blankman] Boone isn't that big of an improvement over Ventura to warrant trading our best prospect and a guy that will be starting next year when at least 2 Yankee starters leave and for years to come after that. [/quote]

I totally agree with you, Blankman. Obviously Ventura is no Boone, but he's not THAT bad. And the Yankees big hole was in the outfield.


And, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Boone arbitration eligible next year, essentially about a $6 million man?

Sorry, it took me a while to read and understand your post. What you're saying makes sense in a way. Wrveres got what I was trying to say. Ok, here we go, hope I can keep this short.

What I was trying to say is this: Over the years the Yankees have often signed veterans from other teams and haven't used any of their own prospects. Maybe they did and I just didn't notice it, or maybe they don't have very many pitching prospects...

that is what I was trying to say about Claussen being expendable...

There, I think that's long enough. Oh, and thanks for...um...enlightening me! :-D ;-D

The last pitching prospetct the Yankees developed was Pettite. The Yanks will just sign whomever they need next year.

With an unlimited budget, the Yankees don't need to worry about next year.
