    Feel free to use this post as a place for you to comment on anything Yankees-related (or within reach of tagging the bag of being Yankees-related on a decent slide) today. It could be a casual conversation offering, or, something you saw in the news, or something very detailed that you want to share that’s within the territory of Yankeeland.

    Or, comment on something that someone else has posted here in the comments…

    Have fun. Play nice. And, remember, keep it Yankees-focused.

      So Steve…any thoughts on Hughes’ final AFL numbers? After last night he finished with 21 H, 13 BB, 38 K in 30 IP with a 3.00 ERA & .198 avg against.

      But, FWIW, at first blush, I would say that he did what he was supposed to do:

      Also, it appears the Nats may be in the running for Tex

      Am I hallucinating or did I read that the Jays might be open to trading Halliday, who has two years on his contract? Wouldn’t the Yankees jump on the chance to get him? (Yes, we’d have to give up players.)

      For Halladay, because he’s under control for 2 more years, the price would be huge – bigger than the price for Johan. So, while I would love to see it, I don’t think Cashman would do it.

      Did ya’ll see the report that says the Yankees are still after Mike Cameron. Yikes.

      not to mention why would the jays trade halladay within the same league let alone the same division. IMO hes the best pitcher in the AL

      Yeah they wouldn’t trade him to the Yanks. Most likely they wouldn’t even trade him to an AL team. They’d probably trade him to the Dodgers for someone like Andre Either and maybe that kid James McDonald.

      Depends on the package received. Intradivisional trades do happen.

      With star players in the AL East? Can’t remember that happening for the longest time. If anyone could find out the last time an All Star player in his prime got traded between two AL East teams then I would be interested to see that.

      With regards to Mike Cameron, apparently the Brewers are p’d off about the Yankees “overbid” on Sabathia, so they might not be interested in trading Cameron to the Yanks anymore. So something good might come out of the Sabathia offer even if he doesn’t accept.

      It’s not often that star players get traded. But with Toronto not going anywhere anytime soon, I see no reason they wouldn’t make a deal with TB, BOS, or NY depending on what’s offered.
