It was a pretty good week all things considered...
New managers: Joe Torre to LA, Girardi to NY is so done. How about a little press time for the other new manager? Scott Brosius was named the manager for the DIII Linfield Wildcats.
Posada giving his thumbs up to Joe G. - a signal to Yankee management that the 3 year, $40 million offer will suit him just fine.
The Yanks picked up the option on Abreu. Are they Gary Sheffielding him or will he be in pinstripes come opening day?
$350 million is the number that Boras is looking to get for A-Rod. At least that's the number Boras told Cashman he'd be willing to get out of bed for a face to face. I can't see a club outside of LAA or the Cubs ready to pony up that kind of jack. I'd love it if the highest offer he gets is actually lower than what he walked away from.
Stop the chatter on Santana. It's not going to happen, nor do we want him. His arm is fatigued - one Carl Pavano per decade is all I can stand.
Payroll? Who said anything about reducing payroll? Cashman telling the press that the Yanks are still big game hunters, and this is still Boss Steinbrenner's team.
Ian Kennedy will be the best Yankee starter in 2008.
