This makes sense, because the Yankees desperately need Lee after giving a billion dollars to another left-hander in the 2008 offseason…

Willis would fit right in with the Diamondbacks.

Shocker that the Yanks would go after the top pitching FA

I think if Brandon Webb was healthy he would no doubt be the top pitcher available,

Right, and if Greg Maddux were in his prime, he’s fetch 10/300…

Your sarcasim is horriable. If brandon Webb was healthy this year and last he would have been hands down the best pitcher in the FA this year,

Would it shock you if the Red Sox did that too? Considering they did do that this year with Lackey.

Not exactly, Boston tends to go after the weak pitching classes top pitcher.

Insert obligatory “yanks are ruining baseball, no they’re not, yes they are, no they aren’t” argument.

I love it when the Yanks sign everyone and fail to win… makes me feel better as a Twins fan.

I love when my team pockets the 35 MIL they receive from MLB.com’s website every year…and then cry poverty when their best pitcher is headed towards free-agency..
the money they save sure helps me pay for my yacht

I love it when this is our strategy, and we win. You know, like last year.

Can someone explain why Grady Sizemore gets so much hype every year? What does he really bring to the table? He has a .272 career average, never hit over .300, he’s averaged 20hrs, and 60rbi a year. (129 hrs, 426 rbi over 7 years). I mean, I get that he’s a great fielder, and his career OPS (not OBP, sorry for the mistype Venn177, I value your input, you’re one of my favorite commenters on here) is an .840, but there isn’t really much special about him. Am I the only person who doesn’t really see why he’s consistantly named a top 5 player, especially from a fantasy standpoint?

Sizemore had a great start to his career but has really tailed off the past two seasons. Injuries are obviously a big part but last year he still played 100 games but his offensive skills really fell off.

I just went back to look at his stats because I was never hugely impressed with him, mainly because he hasn’t done much lately. He really did have some awesome seasons his first 3-4 years in the league. The batting average was never amazing, but around .280 is very good when he contributes in a ton of other categories like home runs and steals.

Not sure if he’ll make it back to what he used to be though, so now he is living off hype.

If his OBP was .840, he’d be getting paid $40MM/year.

Because well, batting average is relatively meaningless and well, Sizemore had a .907 OPS as a 23 year-old. As for his being a top-5 fantasy guy, that’s a thing of the past…
