    He sucked in 2011 for us, the Mets thought they were getting a similarly valued OF and a very good setup man.

    It didn't worked out that way.

    I think the Mets culture makes people suck and they want out. Besides Dickey, who is a freak, it seems most guys go south there.

    The Mets acquire guys way past their prime a lot too.

    Guys like Mo Vaughn, Roberto Alomar, Carlos Baerga, etc etc..

    Honestly i think that Citi Field in it's prior incarnation actually scared Jason Bay and got into his head.

    We had guys who didn't go south though like Beltran, Delgado, Piazza, Olerud, Ventura etc etc.

    Yeah, I mean recently. In the last 5 years.....who has been a good signing or trade? I can't think of one besides RAD.

    Yeah but they haven't made many significant signings the last 5 years lol...

    Rauch and Hairston have been their best FA acquisition outside of RA Dickey

    What the deal if ARod is out till July, would his salary count towards the cap while he's on the DL?

    Yes, they get insurance relief but no cap relief.

    uhh Swisher isn't on the Red Sux. But lets have fun with this

    Granderson>Ellsbury(fluke season)
    Cano>Pedroia
    Texeria>Napoli
    Ortiz>???(Don't have a Dh yet)
    Arod>Middlebrooks(only has a half a season under his belt he is still a mystery)
    Gardner>Gomes (rather have a .270 hitter than someone who will be lucky to hit his own weight
    Jeter>Igiesias
    Ross>Cervelli


    Yankees 6 Red Sux 2

    how are they better again?

    Well, I think you have some issues there.

    I guarantee our fans would take:

    Ellsbury over Grandy
    Middlebrooks over Arods replacement
    And most of them like Swisher over itchy

    Oh, and they save about $70 million over us.

    We've been mentioned to be interested in Cody Ross and Scott Hairston... both guys would be good additions here.
    GO YANKEES!!!!!
