      i gotta think they get it done before the weekend. the Yankees open camp Sunday i think and the Pirates on Friday so they would want to get it done by then. sucks for players now. the talk of this trade has been going on for a couple of days and will probably take a couple more to complete. crappy to not know where you're reporting to the week you get ready to start your season.

      Yep, clock is ticking. ...but if it doesnt happen by Sunday... how does that work, can he still be traded once camp opens?

      He can be traded until the trade deadline.

      I never realized that...I was always under the assumption the trade deadline was more of a trade window. So I assume... they really want to move him to clear the roster spot and potentially land a DH before the season starts.

      I think the rule is if you sign a FA in the offseason you cant trade him until he has been on the rooster a certain amount of time.

      If you had him the prior year you can trade him anytime from basically the WS to the trade deadline.

      yea its FA signings and recent draft picks fall under a limitation on when they can be traded. i don't think they can trade Freddy Garcia but Hughes, Nova, Sabathia, Burnett are all technically available.

      Yanks have interest in the Cuban Ofer Soler... they call him a younger version of Cespedes. He's only 19, so not ML ready.

      Clock still tickin on AJ. Rumored teams... Indians (for Hafner, though that is off the table now I think, Pirates (for ? or Garret Jones) and the Angels were said to be interested, though AJ has a no trade clause to them. There is one "mystery team" in the mix? Mets?

      some more stuff on Burnett, the Yankees want the deal done by Saturday which makes sense since they don't want it running into camp. also read on Twitter than Burnett turned down a trade to the Angels for fan favorite....Bobby Abreu,

      If AJ remains a Yankee and continues to stink the boooosss are going to be out of control. When the fans know that there was a trade in place that he vetoed.

      However I dont want him in LA anyway.

      More of me wants him gone then wants him to stay. But I still feel like there is something there and that he can be a big contributer.

      Im in the opposite camp. They need to dump him in a trade now, or they will pay that entire contract and get very little in return if anything. If he pitches around where he pitched last year in terms of performance he becomes more and more untradeable.

      Good interview with CC this morning on the Fan. Says he never even thought about opting out... that his wife would kill him if they left Alpine. Also said he never lets his son beat him at anything, not even one on one driveway basketball. LMAO

      2 more days!

      So this AJ trade seems imminent. Part of me hates to lose him because he's such an enigma, but mostly I'm thrilled about it.

      I dont have any reservations about this. He was literally one of the worst (if not the worst) starting pitcher in all of baseball last year over the number of innings he pitched. If Cashman, can dump him... after THAT season... AND get a team to give us a couple prospects AND get that same team to eat $15mm of the remaining $33mm... Then I'll go out on a limb and say that this is one of Cashman's most savvy deals as a GM yet.

      One more day fellas!

      I wonder if within minutes of the AJ deal, which is rumored to close on Saturday, there will be an announcement of a DH signing or either Damon, Ibanez, Vlad or Matsui (in my order or preference)

      AJ just doesn't fit in NY. Just like a J.Vasquez, pitches great everywhere else.

      He'll be a better fit somewhere more mellow and less pressure.

      IMO bad comparison.

      Ajs first year with the Yankees he had a 4 era over 200 innings about 200ks and had 7 shut out innings in the biggest game of the ws. I honestly think he has just lost something on his fastball. At his age he has thrown more innings with the Yankees then ever in his career.

      I also think javey doesn't get treated fairly. He was awesome the first half of the year with the Yankees then got hurt and stunk.

      Second time around he lost serious velocity on his fastball from the previous season with the braves.

      At best I think it was equal parts stuff and between the ears.

      ill miss him. i mean outside of the whole black eye incident, he seemed like a model teammate and really wanted to be here and perform for the 3 years. always took blame for his outings and was accountable to the media. hope he has a great season in Pittsburgh.

      and Prior isnt on the team anymore. who knows what happened with him. im pretty sure he got shut down at some point but i dont know if he came back from that or not.

      The deal is official... Good luck in Pitt AJ.... Clay Rapada (loogy) signed to a minor league deal. Damon says he and the Yanks have moved on from talks.

      im not too happy with the Ibanez deal. specifically that its a major league deal. make the guy prove something in spring training and give a guy like Branyan a fair shot at making the team. whats crazy is reading that the Yankees are pretty much up to their budget for the year and held off on signing Ibanez until the Burnett deal went through.

      [/SIZE][/FONT]JUPITER, Fla. -- Albert Pujols' departure from the St. Louis Cardinals after 11 seasons drove home a point to his closest friend on the team. At the end of the day, it's a hard, cold business.

      Four-time Gold Glove catcher Yadier Molina enters spring training this year a lifetime Cardinal seeking a long-term extension, just like Pujols a year ago. Molina is heading into the final year of his contract and he would like to stay in St. Louis.

      I feel Albert is like my big brother. ... When you see a guy going like he did last year, going to another team, yeah, it affected me.
      -- Yadier Molina

      But he emphasizes it's a two-way street. And it can't help matters that Pujols is now two time zones away.

      "When you spend time for how many years, eight years, I feel Albert is like my big brother," Molina said. "When you see a guy going like he did last year, going to another team, yeah, it affected me."

      The 29-year-old Molina, the youngest and most talented of three brothers to catch on in the major leagues, is coming off perhaps his best season. In addition to a strong year behind the plate, he set career offensive highs with a .300 average, 14 homers and 65 RBIs, then added nine RBIs in the World Series.

      As much as he'd love to stick around, as much as he respects the management team of chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. and general manager John Mozeliak, Molina does not intend to give the Cardinals a hometown discount to get the deal sealed. Eyes wide open from the failed Pujols talks, he points out that the money has to be right on the other side of the table, too.

      "I will say this: I like the town, I like the city, but at the same time I have to think about my family," Molina said. "Like they would about their team. Like I said, this is business. If I get good money, I'll take it. If I don't, I'll go away."

      Molina said talks have stalled the last two weeks. Unlike Pujols, who cut off negotiations on the first day of spring training last February with the clear intention to test free agency, Molina plans no such ultimatum.

      Whenever the Cardinals are ready to resume negotiations, Molina is ready, too.

      "Yeah," he said. "I'm open to talk."

      Mozeliak said the Cardinals will do what they can to make a deal.

      "I think it's more open-ended at this point," the GM said. "Our desire would be to find a way to sign him."

      Ideally, Molina would like to have a deal done before Opening Day so he can devote his full attention to the game and help the Cardinals defend their World Series title. He appears trimmer than last season, although he says nothing has changed, and enthusiastically told new manager Mike Matheny he wanted to play all 162 games, though he said that has nothing to do with any sort of salary drive.

      "I always come in good shape, this is not a different year," Molina said. "I can't wait to get out there and catch."

      There's no doubt in Matheny's mind that Molina has come to camp motivated.

      "Obviously he had a front row seat to watch how things went and that's going to probably weigh on him a little bit, I imagine," Matheny said. "The one thing I know is that he's motivated to get better, and I can't believe the contract thing weighs on him that much.

      "It's on his mind but I know he has always tried to be the best catcher there is in the game, and when you go about it that way, the other stuff works itself out."
