So Ramirez and Damon go to The Rays. While Tampa cleaned out the roster house, I'm still one of those few that think both ManRam and Johnny D have something left in the tank - and want to prove it. They'll help Tampa's draw, but do not believe they'll finish better than 4th in the AL East.
Vernon Wells heads West to the Angels. Don't know why, I just always liked the idea of Wells being a Yankee. Clearly not going to happen for while now. He'll regain his form on the West Coast.
I don't mind the signing of Andruw Jones - but it does remind me that it would have been an unnesary addition had the Yanks opted to hold onto Tabata or Austin Jackson.
With Rafael Soriano on the books the Yanks have a chance to have one of the most dominating back-ends baseball has ever seen.
What to do with Joba? 7th inning guy, give him another shot as a starter? or trade?
