You're a couple of posts late, but thanks anyway.

The A's gotta be pissed at The Giants. This is like the Mets signing a Yankee.

18 Million for a guy who hasn't won more than 16 games in 4 straight years (all on pretty good teams)

For 18 million, I want a guy who is a perenial Cy Young candidate

i'm disapointed that he's not a met but i'm glad they didn't give him 18 million per year.

i do think he'll do very well in that ballpark, however. his mistakes to right handers will die in that 421 foot right centerfield alley.

it's probably the best contract boras has ever gotten one of his clients... big money, pitcher's ballpark, switches to an easier league and the guy doesn't even have to move.

Boras needed to make up for the Matsuzaka deal. I agree, wanted him in the Bronx, but, just how many people can the Yankees overpay? A lot, I know.

Maybe this really does mean that if they deal Johnson they'll roll with a young guy or two in the rotation.

Bobby Murcer is having surgery on a brain tumor. Hope it goes well (I'm sure there are jokes to be made here, but, I'm rooting for Bobby to get through this trouble-free).

I doubt it. I think Clemens is the obvious target.

You wouldn't have gotten that in this market. You think Johan Santana wouldn't have exceeded that number if he had been a free agent this year?

Clemens is a no brainer, agreed. But, if Johnson is gone, they have 3 starters...Mussina, Wang and Pettitte. I've read that they want Igawa in the pen. So, sure, they want Clemens, but they need 2 starters now, 1 if Igawa goes into the rotation...and as you know, Clemens, if he does elect to pitch, and pitch for the Yanks, is not gonna sign until mid-season.

So, yes, Clemens is a target, but they need someone for April.

they basically spent 9 million a year for the next 5 years to throw Igawa in the pen?

I thought Igawa was going to be a starter, and for that money, he should be.

And hey, the Yanks still have Pavano.

Chip, I've read both, that he'll start and that he'' relieve. Maybe the attempt to deal Johnson means the rotation. They have been craving a quality lefty out of the pen for years, though. That's a lot of $$$ for a reliever, though, agreed.

You guys gonna keep Weaver?

Igawa isn't going in the pen and Clemens probably won't go to the Yankees.
Let me get this straight here:
The Yankees ALLEGEDLY are looking to trade a 43 year old and then they are ALLEGEDLY looking to replace him with a 44 year old. Ain't buying it! This kind of talk is up there with "Joe Torre being fired" and "Arod being traded". Despite all the squawking, they never happened.

If murder were legal for a day, Brian Cashman would go strangle Pavano.

if Boras wasn't Weavers agent, I'd say yes, it seems like Weaver really wants to stay. But the Cardinals won't put up the kind of money Boras will demand, and someone will go crazy and give him a big contract based on the playoffs last year, while ignoring his 6 era during the regular season.
