World Series Champions NY Yankees Season Thread 95-67

Quote:
The New York Yankees, Arizona Diamondbacks and Detroit Tigers are on the verge of the first major trade of baseball's winter meetings, a deal that would send Tigers outfielder Curtis Granderson to New York, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

In the trade, the Diamondbacks would obtain Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy, while the Tigers will pick up Max Scherzer, Phil Coke and outfield prospect Austin Jackson.

The deal would give the Yankees a starting center fielder. Starting outfielder Johnny Damon and designated hitter Hideki Matsui are both free agents.

In return, the Tigers would get a hard thrower in Scherzer and a well-regarded prospect in Austin Jackson, while the Diamondbacks get a pair of starting pitchers in Edwin Jackson and Kennedy.

Damn I didn't want to give up Austin Jackson but Granderson is a solid pickup.

Good deal for Yanks. Rumors initially were that Detroit wanted Hughes and Jackson but I knew that wouldnt fly. Kennedy isnt elite at all IMO.
Im a little shocked by this trade, by giving up maybe the top CF prospect in all of basbeall, Austin Jackson, but im ok with letting Coke and Kennedy go.

I liuke granderson, and im excited about him in Center.

Supposely a done deal, all thats left is physicals and its a done deal.
been agreed upon,

Wow. What a scary lineup. Granderson hit 30 bombs in Detroit of all places...what's he gonna do with the short porch?

Melky in left? Bring Damon back?

I doubt Damon comes back now unless he accepts a paycut and reduced playing time.
Yankees are scary good, A-Rod, Texiera and Granderson


Eff this trade.

Don't want to lose Granderson!

Thats who I'd have. He definitely proved himself last year and having Gardner as a backup wouldn't be too bad. Although the Cubs have something else to say about that.

Chicago Tribune - With Curtis Granderson coming to the Yankees, the Chicago Cubs will make a run at Melky Cabrera, according to sources.

The Cubs were also in the running for Granderson, but weren't willing to part with Starlin Castro

MSNBC - Alex Rodriguez and Kate Hudson have broken off their relationship, according to a report from Gossipcop.com.

Hudson was seen leaving a celebration at New York nightclub 1OAK in a huff.

Last Thursday, Hudson appeared on “Late Show With David Letterman” and giggled her way through a series of questions about the baseball star. The couple appeared in good spirits together at Hudson’s premiere for her new film, “Nine,” on Dec. 4 in London.

The news of the breakup took a mutual friend of the couple by surprise. “Wow, they were happy a week ago,” she said.

The Centaur is on the loose again!!!

Melky to Atlanta for Javier Vasquez

You're slippin', MT.

I didn't like Vasquez the first time he was here, and I really liked Melky. Oh well.
