    I think it is easier to find a mid-rotation starter than a starting shortstop. Obviously if Didi keeps playing this way, he isn't a starting caliber shortstop, but the bar is pretty low these days...

    In every single category, including ABs? If so then no. Otherwise, he will likely bust Jeter's pitiful line if he can get at least 4 months of play.

    And having played most of his career in the days before most fans had internet access, the media was the window to the man. If they didn't like him, they'd make sure no one did.

    ARod and Bonds had reputations as "douches" long before they were accused of using PEDs. People were more likely to forgive guys like Andi and Giambi because they were liked beforehand.

    Yeah but they weren't big free agents like when we hauled in Sabathia, Tex and Burnett. They played it cheap and got very lucky. Didn't work out so well last year.

    Well, yeah. No one gives a **** when WalMart flexes its financial muscle and fails to gain anything. Notice you don't really hear complaints about the Yankees payroll the last two years either....

    Yep. Not at all prospect hugging here. I just don't think that Hamels is what puts us over. He's not Randy Johnson, and we don't have Curt Schilling. I think he just makes us a better mediocre team....

    Looking at the combined salaries in Leo's proposed deal, the Yankees would take on an additional $5.75m by bringing in Pujols (unless they have to pay ARod his HR bonus this year). Since Albert's...

    Is there much difference in cost? Seems to me that, if the salary totals are comparable (2 years of Tex, and likely 3 of ARod and CC), I'd rather have the roster space freed up. Besides, knock $50m...

    Exactly. I still think the Yankees are gun shy after that deal, and maybe now after Tanaka's elbow.

    Still, what hurts is that he was right there for the taking! The Yankees wanted and could have...

    No "if" about it - we already have. Unless they get lucky, the Yankees are deprived the chance to sign the best IFA candidates until 2017. We have about 4 months left to grab all the talent we can....

    Time allotted to commercials (supposedly) haven't changed since 1990. Of course, we now have more pitching changes, and each pitching change adds an addition commercial break.
