      The rumors floating around that I am hearing.
      RJ has agreed to a 1 year extension and the Yankees will get a pitching prospect and a major league MR pitcher.
      I am also hearing that that deal is not final and the Padres are still trying to negotiate.
      I am also hearing that they may try and package the MR pitcher [ Vizciano] and Cabrera for the Pirates pitcher Gonzalez.
      Looking at Vuzcianos numbers for a right handed pitcher he handles lefties very well. Something like a 160 BAA last year and over the last 3 years just over .200.

      we get:
      ohlendorf
      vizcaino
      jackson
      gonzalez
      i just think this was a salary dump for the boss, nothing more. ohlendorf supposedly has a plus sinker and is 6'5 but had a 3.6 era or something like that in triple A last year.. he may just be a journeyman mlb guy who knows... maybe he will be a prototype of the CHEINMING
      rumor has it we're going to try to flip some of these pitching prospects for one of santana, zambrano, or willis. i could see willis or zambrano MAYBE being a possibility but not santana... i don't get why the new york post publishes stuff like us getting johan. i think we're definatley going to get clemens now since rj his gone (he's not a fan of randy) and let the young guys like sanchez compete for the #5 spot. my prediction for the '07 rotation:
      clemens
      wang
      moose
      pettite
      igawa/rasner/sanchez/ohlendorf/pavano
      not too bad.. i'm just happy cash dumped malcontent RJ to replace him with roger

      salary dump?
      more like an over the hill pitcher dump

      Jackson-25 years old, 6'5 215. In double AA posted a 2.65 ERA is considered a power pitcher with a "devastating" slider.
      Ohlendorf 24 years old, 6'4 235. In double A had 3.28 ERA with 1 decent start in triple A. His best pitch is his change from what I can see. He has also been clocked in the mid 90's.
      Gonzalez 23 year old SS. Double A his 280 .357 .758. I hear his glove work is very good.
      At any rate these guys are rated C+ to B- level prospects. Throw in a decent major league bullpen arm and very little cash being exchanged then it's a good deal.
      I think another deal is coming though so it is hard to say just how good the move is until it is all said and done.
      You have to like what Cash is doing though.
      He took two guys that wanted out, were old, both coming off injuries and owed 30 million dollars between the 2 of them and turned them into 5 pitching prospects, 1 ss prospect and one major league relief pitcher.

      so the yankees are not doing that bad when in comes to prospects [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      they are getting like 3 or 4 for RJ
      they got 3 pretty good young players for sheff
      and they even made out in the Wright deal....
      thats about 10 young players for 3 old dudes....BC can move these guys around and get some mlb experienced players [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      i like the direction the team is moving in..it really seems they are determined to getting younger

      Still no takers on my sig question? You guys are slippin.
      I'm really happy to see the end of the RJ era in NY. Two of the guys I had the most trouble rooting for on this team were Sheff and RJ. He was a big cry baby on the mound and was NEVER worth the money he was being paid.
      Today's post had a pic of RJ and the title "Good Riddance".
      So, Cash is managing this organization in a very early 90s kinda way. I'm lovin it. Young guys coming in. Old guys with big contracts going out. Good stuff.
      I hear you guys talkin about Clemens. I dont see that happening. I think this year's rotation will remain...
      Wang
      Pettitte
      Moose
      Igawa
      Pavano
      ...with the younger guys waiting for their shot if someones lands on the DL.

      Even if Clemens gets all the money that we saved by trading RJ, it is still a good move.
      IMO Clemens and RJ are a wash. I think both if on the Yankees have a chance of getting close to Randys 05 stats. I just don't see Clemens as being some sort of savior or any better then that.
      But Clemens plus 3 prospects and MR guy> RJ.
      Cash said something about changing the attitude of the team as Clemens has come out and said he doesn't care for RJ's attitude. So it is no surprise that Andy doesn't care for RJ either. Well Cash is changing that attitude and getting younger in the process.

      I think the Yankees made out pretty good in this deal.....Dumped salary only had to pick up 2 to 4 million a year....And got some decent prospects to either bolster the farm or to use in a later trade...

      On the other hand I don't know what the DBacks were thinking ???? X millions for a question mark....That may or may not be healthy and may or may not put asses in the seats going towards 300...
      Its a stop gap move for Arizona......Do the Dbacks even have any of the original Yankee prospects from the first deal???? I know for all the hype and Lusting after Dioner(sp) Navarro he's not with the DBACKS anymore....?

      Last I checked Navarro was on the Drays. Other than that it was Brad Halsey...he may still be with the Dbacks.

      thats what i'm saying. why can't you see us getting roger? not only did we free up a lot of money so far... but we have a lot of question marks in the rotation
      pavano (we all know that story)
      igawa (never pitched in the minors)
      even pettite staying healthy
      seems like a few pitchers go down with us every season... i really hope cash trades for a proven arm without giving up too much

      I won't say its impossible...I think that Roger burned the Yankees pretty bad with the retire/unretire saga. I'm not sure they're going to go head of heels to bring him back now. Hey, I dont mind if they bring him back, I just have the feeling it wont happen.

      You can have Roger if you want him I am unconvinced with his NL numbers that he will be effective...
      Not to mention Clemens on the brite would be even less effective IMO...Some writers have speculated the reason he took those 3 months off was to actually serve a fine for testing positive...

      The Yankees would look bad after the BS he pulled...

      thats the way i feel...i just can't see it
      nor can i see the yankees bending over backwards to accomodate all of his needs(the deal he has with Houston)it just would not be fair to all the other vets on the team.....
      with that said..i still thik the yankees will pick up another pitcher before spring....just a question of who and who is out there????
