Post by job41475 »

So, when the whole team is healthy, who sits?

Matsui, Abreu, Damon, Sheffield, or Giambi?

lol true. I just haven't heard the whole deal yet. Didn't hear about Lidle but knew it was a possibility. If you can add a bat like Abreu's, you have to.

Yankees have tentative deal for Abreu, Lidle
ESPN.com news services


The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees have a tentative deal to send Phillies right fiedler Bobby Abreu and pitcher Cory Lidle to New York ESPN.com's Jayson Stark and ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reported Sunday.

Stark reported the Yankees will send 20-year-old minor-league shrotstop C.J. Henry -- their No. 1 pick in 2005 -- and 27-year-old left-handed reliever Matt Smith. The Phillies will also pick one other minor-leauge player from an agreed-upon list, while the Yankees will take on responsibility for Abreu and Lidle's contracts. Abreu is owed $15 million for 2007 alone.

Abreu is hitting .277 with 8 home runs and 65 RBI in 99 games. He has a career batting average of .301 with 198 home runs and 841 RBI over 10 seasons.

Lidle, a right-hander, is 8-7 with a 4.74 ERA in 21 starts in 2006. In eight seasons he has a career mark of 78-69 with a 4.54 ERA.

Abreu was in the Phillies' starting lineup Sunday but was pulled for Shane Victorino 10 minutes before their game with the Florida Marlins.

$15,000,000 for one season, that was the reason they had such a hard time trading him.

.277 batting avergae, 8 homeruns and 65 Rbi's = $15,000,000... just another typical Yankee pickup. Let's see just how high the payroll can get :lol:

Hmmm....a look at tomorrow's linuep:
CF Damon
SS Jeter
DH Giambi
3B A-Rod
RF Abreu
C Posada
LF Melky Cabrera/Bernie Williams
1B Andy Phillips
2B Cairo


Possible lineup come September:
CF Damon
SS Jeter
3B A-Rod
1B Giambi
DH Sheffield
LF Matsui
RF Abreu
C Posada
2B Cano

I'm liking the trade. He leads the league in OBP (which is about 10x as important as BA) and I don't think he has to hit HRs to be productive, although Tino Martinez thinks that he could very well have a resurgence with the short porch in right.

No one loves Tino more than me but he is God Awful on "Baseball Tonight". He looks so nervous all the time. Bring back HR ( Damn those "Hugs")

All you Sox fans need to get a clue. If your boy wonder had made this trade you'd be doing your "we win the world series once every 86 years" dance. We trump you (as usual) and all you come up with is $15 million. :roll:

Save it!

Your all a bunch of loosers! :P

Sox don't have a problem spending the 15 million, they just chose more wisely as to what they spend that 15 million on.

Trump us again :roll: . Yup sure you did.. Just like you did with ARod, Contrass, Pavano, Embree.... how did those 'trumps' work out for you?

Now wait a second. Let me propose something to you. Would you take a third baseman who's hitting .280 with 22 HRs, 74 RBIs, 73 runs, .386 OBP, and a .573 SLG? I know Lowell has exceeded expectations and has been a very serviceable 3B in Boston but I'd still take A-Rod.

Given A-Rod isn't going to win MVP this year, but by the end of the year he's still going to end up with 35-40 HRs and over 100 RBIs and runs scored. I don't know what more to expect from him, other than a few less errors, and I don't know why he gets booed. If he was playing like Giambi was last year after "losing 4 pounds by not eating fast food" then they would have a point.



I'm sorry that I'm one of the last Yankee fans still cheering the guy on.
