Yankees to waste more money on old injured people!! Sweet!

Postby acsguitar » Tue Nov 07, 2006 4:46 pm

Ok if the rockies were any good I might drop my allegiance to the yankees down a few notches when they are considering such moves as

Bring Back Clemens and Pettitte

Ok Clemens still has it but he'll cost 200000 bizillion dollars and pettite is bound to be done soon. :-t
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Both are done. They're just talking, I doubt either of them get a deal though when they can have Mussina for cheaper.

Cashman is trying to fix a mistake that happened years ago. Too late Brian!

I doubt the Yankees land either one of those pitchers. But if they do get them, I hope the Yankees spend about 40 million to land both of them.

Even if they do waste money on them, why does it really matter? The Yankees have unlimited resources.

The Red Sox are also talking to Clemens, in case they don't win the rights to Matsuzaka/

It's hard to say Pettitte is done. Let's take a look at the numbers.

For an offensively challenged Astro team:

2005: 17-9 222.1 IPs 171 Ks 2.39 ERA
Cy Young caliber season

2006: 14-13 214.1 IPs 178 Ks 4.20 ERA
While he racked up a high ERA, 14 wins with the Astros offense is pretty solid. 4.20 is out there yes i know, but look a little closer.

1st half: 7-9 5.28 ERA
2nd half: 7-4 2.80 ERA

He was brilliant down the stretch for them last season, we know he can pitch successfully in the AL East, and he's a big game pitcher. While i wouldnt sign him for a long term deal, I'd love to see him back in pinstripes for 2 or 3 more years.

Agreed. I expect these deals to be made if Schmidt and Matsuzaka go elsewhere.

Considering Mussina was better overall last year and would come cheaper, Andy Pettitte will not be on the team next year if Cashman truly is in charge of making decisions.

acs, I think you and I will suffer dumb old players on the decline in the clubhouse for years from our team.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind getting Clemens back for a year, I however believe Pettite is too inconsistent and is getting up there in years (also losing some velocity) to be a good signing for the money he will demand.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
