    Too much money for him to walk away from I think

    I agree with what you said about Cashman but I'm pretty sure it was either Hank or Hal that wanted Arod. Cashman was against it but they overruled it.

    So how would adding Oswalt, coming off an injury and a 5.80 ERA last season with the Rangers, help their back of the rotation problems? I live in Texas, and watched him play. He was God awful. Barring a big time turn around/miracle, Oswalt won't do anything to help the Yankees.

    You're judging him based on last year? For the price they can probably get him for, it doesn't matter. It's worth the risk. He's been a very good pitcher throughout his career.

    I believe A-Rod would be better off just hanging it up now. Health problems are catching up with the Hips and PED use on top of that. Would be better to just hang it up.

    That's kind of how sports works. He's been trending downwards for 2 years, why would it get better pitching in Yankee Stadium?

    I do like the Hafner deal though, he'll have a solid year with the Yanks.....
    How is it you 'like' the Hafner deal if ur a Yankees fan? He's never been the same since the shoulder injury he had a few years ago and he's only played over 100 games in a season once since 2007 'cause he's always hurt. He came off hitting .228 last year and he's gonna be 36 years old this year. How is any of this adding up to 'good' for the yankees?? It smells like desperation to me.

    But, you know what? I think it's a great for the Yankees...only cause I'm a Dodger fan and hate the Yanks with a passion...

    Also, Lambeau, don't expect the Yankees to be throwing so much money around in the near future. I hear the Stienbrenner's want the salarly for the near future to be under $190 milllion, $18 million a year less than it already is.

    Like Gladdy said, ya, that's kinda how baseball works. He might have been a good pitcher in the past, but none of that means a hill of beans now.

    In the last two years, his ERA is up a full run over his career average. His WHIP is up substantially, as are his hits allowed per 9 innings pitched. His walks are up, and his strikeouts are down. None of those metrics are encouraging. Who cares if the Yankees have money to spend? It doesn't mean they should spend it foolishly, and signing Oswalt is a high risk/low reward deal.
