Understood. What I meant was that they could've signed Colon for more years and kept Nick Johnson. Johnson is one of the Yankees best pitchers, I believe, with a great on base percentage. Sure his health is an issue, but so is Vaz's. Plus, he can be erratic at times, as Madison repeatedly warned me when I was trading for him.
Plus, this could be a huge issue for Vaz--going to NY. I was half-joking about being "Weavered", but as a friend of mine emailed me, it's a big difference between pitching in New York and pitching in front of four families and the occasional dog.
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
