IF Carl ends up being a one-year wonder...I'll be content with that.

I don't think that will happen. He was money in 2002. Especially in the post season.

As a Yanks fan i'm happy with the pick up but I won't be satisfied until where holding a press conference annoucing Randy Johnson as our new ace!

The Red Sox are making a huge mistake by giving Pedro what he wants and not giving Pavano what was needed.

The SOX staff is very old now. Curt, Pedro, Wells.....a lot of wear and tear there.

The Yanks staff, while maybe not as good is younger (Pavano, Vazquez, and Wright) along with Mussina.

The Sox staff is clearly better (as of today), but the big question is will those arms make it through 162 plus a post season.

If the Yanks add Milton, a leftie who is also younger, then their staff will look very good going into next season.

NY Post on Saturday also reports even with signing Pavano, Yanks GM Brian Cashman hasn't conceded Pedro just yet. He has said the Yanks are waiting to make their first offer.

But the Red Sox are trying to trade for Tim Hudson as well by Monday. And a Hudson trade could push Pedro out the door.

Should be an interesting 48 hours.

Red Sox wont get hudson -- But i'll tell you who will..... THE DODGERS....for Edwin Jackson and a 2B Prospect.. Just what Billy beane wants, a young stud pitcher and a stud prospect. Hudson wants out and he wants out NOW....Living in the bay area you tend to hear and see things about bay area players that out of state people dont hear.

yeah I know it's being reported everywhere but I just wanted to let everyone know that there's not chance of the deal falling through like the A-Rod to the Red Sox deal last year!

MLB needs a damn cap. Keep dreaming.

Salary cap's are unamerican in nature. The fact the NBA and NFL have them just shows they have weak unions.

With all that money they offered Pavano, who wouldnt go.

He should of really considered staying in Florida Though. we upgraded our rotation with Leiter and then he leaves. With him we would of been winning in 2005 alot more.
