Because I just don't understand how the Yankees (or any other team in baseball) couldn't have beaten this offer with ease.
Rumors in Detroit were that the DBacks were asking for top prospect Jacob Turner, lefty Andrew Oliver, and Charles Furbush. These are the better Tiger pitching prospects. So why did Zona settle for what seems like such a bad deal? Was it a pride thing? like he wasn't going to go back to Boston or the Yanks and revisit counter offers? Making your team stink is not a sound cost cutting technique. Gotta wonder what went wrong.

Pitchers Brett Anderson, Dana Eveland and Greg Smith; infielder Chris Carter; and outfielders Aaron Cunningham and Carlos Gonzalez.
