Get ready for the departure of LBJ...

I don't get it. So far, the additions have not been inspiring.

allan said...

Well, LBJ is leaving no matter who they sign, isn't he?

9casey said...

Not this year, we still own him for this year. But know they are looking to trade him for pitching.

Daily News:
LUPICA: Hear that groan? It's the Yankees regretting they signed broken-down A-Rod to the dumbest contract in the history of sports

If we could turn LBJ around for a frontline starter. We will be in decent shape.

FenFan said...

This deal does not inspire me. Years and numbers seem high. Is he really valued at this level?

Meanwhile, pitching is still a question mark, especially in the relief corp.

9casey said...

Relief Corp? That might be one of our strengths.........We need more starting pitching....

I almost can't wait, just to stop hearing this.

(Not from 9C, from everyfuckingone.)

Yahoo's Passan says these recent moves are more about fixing the clubhouse than winning games.

If I had to choose between those two...

L, if it was up to me I would just sign LBJ long term. But Ben and Larry don't return my calls or text messages. But they did send me a certified letter asking to stay 500 feet away from them, I don't know what that is all about......

Youk's apparently in a good position with 3B scarce. This morning it's said he has a one-year $12m offer from the Yanks! And 2/16-18 from other teams. Damn. According to a Ken Rosenthal tweet (I've been watching the tweet roundup from Yahoo).

Crunching numbers of newest Sox

How many MFY fans' heads would explode if they realized they had to root for Yook?!?!?

9casey said...

The Yankees are moving in slow motion and I would be surprised if Yook took that deal, Seeing Arod would be back in June. but 12 million would be hard to turn down.
