It's a good time to be a Yankee fan, no? The Mientkiewicz
deal and the Cairo re-signing impressed me, and I'd be gladder still if
Cashman could somehow fit Bernie Williams into his master scheme. It's
not The Yankee Way to coldly discard such a proud, loyal Yankee hero, is

Hah. You wish. Minky is probably a short term solution as they just
wouldn't budge even a bit on the amount or length. I think as soon as
the M's fall out of contention, the front office attention will focus
on Broussard who'd be a platoon 1B (probably paired with Phelps). You
know there are some who view Woemack (I hated that guy) as a
fortuitous acquisition. Woemack and Wright falling on their faces
discredited Bill Emslie (the former Yankee traveling secretary who'd
become George's Rasputin from 2002-2005) and that made George retain
Cashman who had been all set to move to Philadelphia. It definitely
is a much better environment and you can almost see it in asbny-y.

But, I am starting to believe you, that come September, the Yankees may
still be under $200m in payroll.
Yup as I don't think Clemens would cost more than 11-12mil for half a
season's service. And as of now they're at 178mil.
