Word is Florida asked for Sean Henn and Scott Procter and the Yanks didn't say no!!!!!!!! They are working out the details of a deal.

Im not a huge Pierre fan (as noted in the past), but with Giles off the market and I don't want to give big bucks to a breaking down Johnny Damon, this might be the best option. Considering we aren't giving up anything its worth a shot. Texas is also after Pierre.

Why the Yanks want him is because its a 1 year deal. After this year Pierre is arbitration eligable. So the Yanks can let him walk and in 2007 Andru Jones, Tori Hunter and others are FREE AGENTS. So they can make a move on one of them.

ESPN INSIDER has this info.

What a steal. I'm an Angels fan first but my dad is Yankees fan for life. I've always had a soft spot for them and I have to say this is a steal beyond steals.

Maybe the Marlins like pitchers who look like John Cena (Procter) and tall lefties who consistently throw one-hoopers to home plate (Henn).

how many pitching prospects do the marlins need, this is getting rediculous

Calling these guys prospects is being kind.

Henn used to be considered something though...

Juan Pierre is regardless of his detractors a great player.

:lol:

Seems like a STEEP price to pay for an "old" centerfielder, eh Mike?

This would be a very good trade for the Yankees. Juan Pierre although isn't a strong bat (which the Yankees don't need anyway), he's very good on the bases in the field. Giving up Henn and Procter are no big deal.

Also Mike, Torii Hunter and Jones aren't free agents after the 2006 season. Hunter has a team option (which is a lot of money so the Twins could possibly let him go). Jones is a FA after the 2007 season (along with Vernon Wells).

CFers who are FA after 2006 are Jim Edmonds, Cameron (team option), Pierre, Randy Winn, Milton Bradley, Aaron Rowland (player and team option + arb.), Dave Roberts, Gary Mathews Jr., Steve Finley (team option), and David Dellucci.

.

From ESPN INSIDER: What makes Pierre attractive is that it's likely a one-year deal, since Pierre can become a free agent after the season and the 2007 class of free-agent center fielders will include Andruw Jones, Torii Hunter and Mike Cameron.

Write them and correct them! :shakeno:

You might be reading it wrong, Class of 2007 could mean after the 2007 season?

Anyway here's a link to FA after the 2006 season:

Go to it and tell me if you see Jones there? If not try this link to FA after the 2007 season:
http://www.mlb4u.com/0708FA.html

I'll try to find another site about their contracts though.

From SI.com: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/scorecard/09/13/truth.rumors.mlb/

Will the Braves approach NL Most Valuable Player candidate Andruw Jones about another extension? "We probably will," general manager John Schuerholz said. "When it's time." When Jones agreed to a six-year, $75 million contract extension with the Braves in November 2001, he relied on advice from his father instead of his agent, the famously hard-bargaining Scott Boras. Right about now, the Braves have to hope Jones will consider a similar approach on his next contract.
-- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

He signed a contract in 2001 for 6 years so doing the math that means he'll be a FA after the 2007 season. Maybe you should write to ESPN to correct them.

Ugh, Henn and Proctor are crap. We have enough pitching prospects, especially starters. We want Cano. Cano and Proctor is not too attractive to me. But the Marlins would pull the trigger on that. This is sad....

Procter might turn into a good middle inning/long reliever with some time and work. Playing in meaningless games in Florida might actually speed up the process.

Henn is just utter garbage.

The Marlins are GIVING away Juan Pierre for nothing, but the Mets had to give up their top pitching prospect for Carlos Delgado, and assume about 83% of his contract? WTF?!? :fire:

Granted, Pierre isn't that great, but for crying out loud, these two guys are absolute garbage. Henn is worthless and Proctor is only useful in that he can come out of the bullpen and take a beating.

Incidentally, this report says differently about this whole thing: http://www.nj.com/yankees/ledger/index.ssf?/base/sports-0/1133591671326090.xml&coll=1&thispage=2

Maybe things changed this AM, though.

If they trade Pierre for scrubs, I'm not watching that team anymore.

As a yank fan, henn isnt much, but Proctor can throw GAS (98,99 mph). He had control issues, but he is young and has potential

Actually, Furcal's signing with LA could open a lot of doors. Chicago is desperate to make a splash, and the Marlins are going to ask for Felix Pie. The Cubs want JP, and Pie is a monster. Or LA, which has tons of question marks, could fill the center field one in exchange for C Russell Martin, who is roadblocked by top prospect Dioner Navarro but could turn out better, or 2B Delwyn Young, who is blocked by Kent and whose numbers are fantastic in AA/AAA.
