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.
I honestly do not think anyone knows where Igawa is going yet, not sure how you can be so positive about it....

Edit - Unless you've read something I've missed lately? Hard to keep up with the NY papers here in LA.

And some things do happen, like Sheffield going to the Tigers. You know, at first he was ALLEGEDLY going there.

Not everything pans out, true, but you never know.

We all knew Sheff was history after the season. It makes zero sense to put this guy in the pen. Plus, it has been stated that he would be a back end starter in the rotation. I site www.newsday.com as a source. Unlike the New York Post, their stories pan out.

It was also stated that he'd be a reliever, was just wondering if you'd read anything else lately, that's all....thanks for the info.

Hey Headache, stop stealing The Rock's material!
Seriously though, Yankee broadcaster Bobby Murcer had his brain tumor surgery today. Right now he's recovering. Get well soon, Bobby.

He must lamenate the paper first....hehe.

Hey Numb, Headache, what do you think our Mets will do pitching wise (starters)

1. Glavine
2. Hernandez
3. Maine
4. Pelfrey
5. Perez


I would think thats the way it looks at the moment. I still get off when it was mentioned we were going to try to get Haren or Peavy. But after the price of pitchers skyrocked. It would take Humber, Pelfey, and Milledge at least I would assume to get one of them if not more (Heilman). With all it took to get Jennings, I think it would take at least this.......man.

I know last year's rotation was not much better and I know the Mets can get by until Pedro comes back or make a deal at the deadline. I guess I would hate to see the Mets make a move just for the sake of making a move.

Amen. I wished him well earlier in the thread and asked people not to make any jokes about it.

That Met rotation looks good, but not great.

I wonder who has the strongest rotation going into next season, now that the bulk of the free agents are signed. I still maintain that Jason Schmidt has been the best signing of the winter....a lot of $$$, but not too many years, and he's still pretty good. Just one man's opinion.

I would have to think Boston's Rotation looks great.

Beckett
Schilling
Papelbon
Matsuzaka
Lester
Wakefield

That looks formidable.

I know this is way out of left field.....But what about Doug Davis? He is not listed in the Brew Crews rotation. He is a FA or what?

Davis got dealt to the D-Backs.

I agree that the Sox rotation looks good, but, 3 question marks. Well, 4, possibly 5.

1 - Is Matsuzaka for real
2 - Will Beckett post another 5.00 ERA, cos if so, that's not too formidable.
3 - Schilling's getting older and more injury prone, can he holdd up
4 - Lester? Health????
5 - Will Papelbon make the transition back to starting?

I'm sure #5 will not be too much of an issue, Papelbon has great stuff....but the other 4, who knows? So, potentially a very scary rotation, but there is potential there for things going wrong, too. Fun to talk about, though.

Not sure if you're serious or not.

I think a lot of people considered the Brewers on the brink of being good last year.

If Sheets can go for a whole year, and Suppan can post 15 wins, who knows. Capuano is an ok #2, then Suppan would be 3, I think, with Vargas and Bush rounding things out. Cordero and Turnbow in the pen.

After seeing the Tigers do what they did last year, few things would surprise me this coming season.

Milwaukee would love to have a Brewers team do well, been so long since they even contended.....
