    Shawn Chacón is not the answer to what the Yankees need.

    As far as what the Yankees gave up, Ramon Ramirez and Edwardo Sierra, who knows? Ramirez is a small RHP, who used to be an OF, and was signed by NY out of Japan. He’s got some stuff – but needs seasoning. Sierra came to NY from Oakland in the Chris
    Hammond trade. As far as I know, he’s a non-prospect.

    If they Yankees did not need a starter for Saturday, I wonder if they still make this trade?

      Dammit SL, the last 4-5 posts have been a gloom and doom festival…no amount of prognistication about pitching can drown the fact that the team’s won 3 of its 4 series since the break.

      Also, re: the YES network high definition ad during games: Is it me, or does Michael Kay sound like Harvey Fierstein when he says:

      “WHAT A PLAY BY DEREK JETER!!!”

      Kay in drag, not a pretty thought.

      Sorry about the doom and gloom Jason. But, I gotta call them like I see them.

      Now, if I had started a blog in 1998, well, that would have been a fun season to jot about.

      At this stage in the game, it couldn’t hurt to run him out there to see what he has.

      I’ll say it again…..at this point- who cares?

      put everyone and the kitchen sink out there for a start….if they pitch well- great…pitch them again.

      If not- go to columbus…go directly to Columbus…do not pass go, do not collect $200,000
