News and Notes

  • Cashman says that A-Rod is "doing well".
  • The Yankees also brought A-Hole, A-Fraud Rodriguez in for some serious "big boy" talk. Sounds like he got a stern talking to (AKA "ENOUGH WITH THE STRIPPERS!).
  • Ken Rosenthal says that Melky is on the market.
  • Former Yankee Johnny Blanchard passed away this morning, he was 76.
  • A long time writer, Arther Richman, who worked with both the Yankees and the Mets has died.
  • Andy Pettitte had a sucessful minor leauge outing today.
  • As another slap in the face to the royal fans who were reloacted (me), the Yankees are only allowing field level ticket holders to roam the field level concessions. No more will you be able to watch batting practice from field level either.
  • The trusty screen that caught that drunk kid in the old Yankee Stadium, has not been moved into the new one.

    Across Town

    Right things may look bad for the Yankees. However, the Mets are in an even worse spot now. Outside of Johan Santana, they have no reliable starters. Even Pedro is not what he used to be. Their bullpen is truly pathetic. They`ll probably end up overpaying for K-Rod or Brian Fuentes in the offseason out of desperation. Their offense is all they have. On top of all this they have no farm system to speak of.

    They collpased for the second year in a row and extended their GM Omar Minaya. So, things could be worse.

    The End is Near

    Sidney Ponson is scheduled to pitch on Friday against the shining New York Mets. As you should know Sir Sidney is not one of the most skilled pitchers in the league but lets face it the Mets are not one of the Juggernauts of baseball. The one good thing about him pitching is that if the Mets lose it is the ultimate smack in the face. Anytime a Mets fan says something arrogant to you, you can coolly reply "Sidney Ponson". Lets hope this fat Aruban can shut down the "fear evoking" Mets offense

    Lets Hope He Is Sober By Then.

    Santana Deal Done

    UPDATE: Santana Passed Physical

    Johan Santana is now officially a Met. The extension is for six years and $137.5 million. He was given a $7 million bonus to his $13.25 million deal for this year. So in total it is seven years and $150.75 million, or an annual payment of $21.5 million. I've said it before and I'll say it again, that is a hell of a lot of money for a pitcher. Yeah, they're important, but they play once every five days. Santana will be thirty-six at the end of the deal, and those last few years could make the Mets regret this trade. Especially considering the players it would take to get him, I'm glad the Yankees didn't make this deal. It simply wasn't worth it to them. As Pete Abraham pointed out, with the luxury tax, they would be paying him $28 million per year. It makes a lot more sense for the Mets and I think this is a good deal for them. So congratulations Mets, your are now the fourth best team in baseball.

    Pirates Attempt to Get Even Worse

    Are you a 32 year-old major league pitcher? Have you never thrown over 200 innings in a season? Is your career ERA 5.09 (90 ERA+)? Well, the Pittsburgh Pirates have a job for you. Jaret Wright, I know you all remember him, has signed a minor-league deal with the Pirates and will make $800k if he makes the major league roster.

    In other news: The (Devil) Rays locked up James Shields with a very creative contract. Take note Yankees. Also, the Mets are now the frontrunners for Johan Santana, pretty much because they're still interested.

    Santana Not Worth The Price

    I am writing this from deep in the heart of Red Sox Nation, where I am visiting family. As you might expect, everyone here is a hick, and this is being written on the only computer in a five-mile radius. All I have been hearing is, "Don't worry, maybe the Bruins won't win the Stanley Cup," as well as the proclamation of Jacoby Ellsbury as the second coming of Jesus and how laptop-boy is better than Hughes.

    Anyway, I found this article by Vince Gennaro, a baseball economist. He analyzes the possible Johan Santana trades and it is very interesting, you should definitely check it out. With regards to the possible Santana to Yankees deal, he says it does not make financial sense for the Yanks. He describes the prospects necessary to complete the deal as a tariff, because Santana would require a large sum of money to be signed long-term. I agree with this 100%. He doesn't say it specifically, but implies that it would make sense to sign him as a free agent after this year.

    He later adds that it makes even less sense for the Red Sox, but a case could be made for a Mets trade.

    Yankees Pull Santana Offer

    The Yankees have pulled their offer for Johan Santana off of the table according to ESPN Radio's Andrew Marchand. You can breathe easy now Phil you are safe. Now it seems the Mets and the Red Sox and the two main teams in the hunt for Santana. Recent news points to the Mets as the frontrunners.
