Baby Boss: "The Kids Ain't Going..."

Yankees say young pitchers not available - Baseball -
It’s pretty obvious which players we’re not going to trade,” the owner’s son said Wednesday, before rattling off the team’s most-prized young pitchers. “Chamberlain, Hughes and even Kennedy. Not for a position player.

People, take note of that final sentence, and then say to yourself, "Hankie has some serious Yohan Santana lust written into that statement."

Sounds like Baby learned something from Daddy Darth: "don't go berserk until you get something good in return."

Still say that Hank and the Skanks will get Willis & Cabrera. What they'll give up is still TBD.

I don't know about that, Chief. No one seems to be drooling over A-Hole, and Boras needs at least two teams to go to war to drive the price up to the level he thinks he can get; pulling that stunt during Game Four probably scared a lot of possible suitors off because it showed everyone that despite any words coming out of his mouth, A-Hole will always be a "24-1" kind of guy.

Also, I really believe (though no one will say it) that Selig put the word out among the owners that there will be hell to pay if anyone plays Boras's game this time and drives the market further into the abyss. The Yanks' arbitration offer (which would probably include a multi-year extension, if accepted) might be the best deal he can get, because he would have a hard time convincing the arbitrator that the highest paid player in the game needs $35 million for one frickin' season, no matter what that fat fucking folder Boras put together says.

Dealing for Santana would make a boatload of sense, considering the situation with Pettitte. Also, it would possibly make that dumbass A-Hole realize the Yanks are still probably the only chance he'll ever get a ring, because they are probably the only group of players who will put up with his prima donna bullshit.
