With Texas losing a reliever for the season, I know they are on the market for one. If they don't like Sheets medical outlook, fixing the bullpen is the next option. But I'll **** my pants if that happens.

The fact that he is a type A has scared off a lot of teams. No one wants to kick up a 1st rounder for him. If the first pick is protected, it may be tempting if the price is right.

it is just the looss of a First Round pick keeping teams away....the team that gets him will have to be a highly competetive team that will end up with a late draft pick anyway...

exactly, however, if the Yankees do sign him, he'll only cost a 3rd or fourth rounder...

does anyone think the Mets might be a fit?

as of right now...any team willing to pay the price is a fit...imagine if it's Cruz- Putz- K-Rod in the 7th, 8th, 9th, respectively....nasty...

yankees, phillies or dbacks are the only ones who would risk the draft pick as of right now

I think the Yankees can't sign anymore type A free agents. They really don't need Cruz either. Their bull pen was strong last year.

That is true. There is a limit of three:


If there are 14 or fewer Type A or Type B free agents available, no team can sign more than one type A or B player. If there are between 15-38, no team can sign more than two. If there are between 39 and 62, there's a limit of three. However, teams can sign as many Type A or B free agents as they've lost, regardless of the limits above.

Wrong.


Fear not, greedy Yankee fans, the Yankees can sign all the Type A free agents if they want.

A story on MLB.com today said the Yankees had reached the quota on Type A free agents.

This led to seriously a dozen e-mails from fans who want Juan Cruz, Adam Dunn and/or Manny Ramirez.

Turns out the story is wrong. Brian Cashman said the Yankees could sign up to eight if they want. Im not sure of the exact number, but its one we wont worry about either way, he said.

Im not clear on the exact reasons. But the large pool of FAs led to an adjustment in the quota. I also think it has something to do with how many ranked FAs they had.

Panic over. Think big thoughts.
And, no, Cash wouldnt way whether than plan to sign anybody else.

And so what if the Yankees bullpen was good last year? Bullpens sway from Great to Terrible all the time. This would just make it better on paper, and a better chance at being great again

Detroit wouldn't have to give up a first rounder and they could use bullpen!

He's not signed yet because he would cost a first rounder and I don;t know where he will end up.

I have been hoping for that all this off season, but it has not been discussed. I would ove to see him get a shot to close.

Yeah Texas makes sense. Adam Dunn makes a lot of sense for Texas too. I'm very surprised they haven't went after him yet. It seems like a perfect fit. Imagine how many dingers this guy would smash in that ball park? There's still some really decent free agents available. I guess the economy really is that bad huh?

I want Juan Cruz on the Yankee's, I think that he is a beast, and could make the Yankees have the best bullpen in all of baseball, along with a top 3 rotation...this bullpen would be deadly...

the yankees can sign up to 8 type a FAs... and you can NEVER have too much depth in the bullpen.

I'd love Dunn here, if he were a righty I think we would be all over him. But this lineup is lefty stacked, and we would probably have to trade Blalock to sign another bat. Manny makes sense to, Hamilton/Manny mmmmmmmmmmm
