New York Notes: Wilpon, Sabathia, Torrealba

There seems to be no shortage of on- and off-field baseball news coming out of the Big Apple these days. Here's some of the latest out of New York …

  • High-ranking baseball people are concerned about whether the Wilpons will be able to keep the Mets in the wake of the ongoing Madoff fallout, writes Jon Heyman of SI.com. MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, a "friend and ally" of Wilpon's, according to Heyman, will give Wilpon a long leash in sorting through the mess, but some are doubting whether the Wilpons can withstand a loss worth half or even a quarter of the $1 billion that Madoff trustee Irving Picard is seeking.
  • The Yankees may actually benefit if CC Sabathia opts out of his contract after 2011, writes Joe Sheehan of SI.com. Typically, opt-out clauses are considered player-friendly, but because of Sabathia's injury risk due to his body type and age between 2012-15, the Yanks might do well to let Sabathia walk and spend the money elsewhere, according to Sheehan, especially with some promising pitching prospects on the way up. One interesting hypothetical posed by Sheehan: Let Sabathia walk, move Mark Teixeira to full-time DH duties and sign potential free agent Albert Pujols.
  • The Mets won their grievance case with catcher Yorvit Torrealba, writes Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. An arbitrator ruled that the Mets were within their rights to call off a three-year, $14.4MM agreement they had reached with Torrealba following the 2007 season upon conducting a physical which caused them "concerns" about the condition of Torrealba's throwing shoulder.

    Move Texeira the gold glover to DH? No way, just trade him for pitching, in that extremely hypothetical situation

    • woadude 4 years ago

      Yeah and if Sheehan wants to stay in dream land why not just flip Tex to the Mariners for King Felix and have the Royals give them Joakim Soria for Chamberlain, and the Yanks sign Pujols for 20 million a year because by god, doesnt every player want to be a Yankee?

    • Sorry, enough with these fantasies of trading Teixeira. He has a full no-trade clause. I don’t see him waiving that to leave New York anytime soon.

  2. Redsox1324 4 years ago

    Texiara. A gold glove defender as full time DH. That’s a crime to Tex and the game.

    • jwsox 4 years ago

      not if you have albert playing 1st who has a better track history of both gold glove Defence(that statement lost a ton of credibility after jeter won it this past season) and is a better over all offensive player

  3. wickedkevin 4 years ago

    So the Yankees let CC walk… Move Tex to DH, have Pujols play 1B fulltime, and then they sign… Scot Kazmir?

    oops :)

  4. Sheehan is definitely not thinking with his head, if you want pujols in pinstripes, you trade Teix and use the money for tex on cc to stay. If CC opts out the yankees are screwed for the next coming years anyway unless Hughes reaches his potential sooner rather than later.

    • woadude 4 years ago

      No team is going to give any prospects for the privilege of taking on Tex’s contract, no team, not even the Cubs.

      • I never said you would get much back for Teix… you would just sign Pujols. I want to be clear that in no way am I saying the yankees will get Pujols, or trade Teix and get anything valuable back

        • Brad426 4 years ago

          You know Tex has a NTC, right?

          • Yea I do, that’s why it’s unlikely, but lets say rumors start getting thrown around the Teix is on the block/the yankees are fielding offers for him (like the young situation)… players don’t like to hear that, maybe he would demand a trade. You never know

          • Brad426 4 years ago

            Yeah, certainly not out of the realm. Just wasn’t sure if everyone was aware of his NTC. His salary coupled with the NTC sure makes it seem unlikely he could get moved.

          • You’re better off paying Teix $20 million then Fielder 20 million, that’s how I’m thinking about it.

          • woadude 4 years ago

            having a NTC makes the scenario that he is on the trading block seem pretty delusional.

  5. if cc ops out i can see him landing in philly and now that is one hell of a starting five

    • jmcbosox 4 years ago

      ugh…

    • Yeah, why be an ace on the most successful franchise in baseball history when you can be a #3 or #4 guy on a different aging club? The Phillies would likely have to decline Oswalts $16 million option for 2012 and hope Hamels gives them a hometown discount in order for Sabathia to land there. Oh, and Sabathia would probably have to take less money as well….

    • RedSoxDynasty 4 years ago

      Nice dream you’re having there! Time to wake up now!

    • While the thought it scary, I think the Phillies are going to have more holes to fill than worry about paying another pitcher 20M+.

  6. well, if they let him walk they can promote a pitcher or 2, and sign a pitcher or 2…I love CC but Halladay is the best pitcher in the game, and NOONE should make more that much than him, not even Lee…I know its business and “fair market blah blah blah”, but if you can bring in 3-4 good players for the price of one, its worth looking into. They will have to re-sign Cano at some point so there is money right there…Pujols would be a dream, but far fetched, but you never know. Pujols and a FA pitcher and promoting 2 of our big guys to give a shot might be worth trying, even for the Yanks…

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      There’s no one worth signing in winter 2011 that comes anywhere near to being an ace.

  7. Rodriguez and Jeter are going to need DH time in the not-so-distant future. Signing Pujols is contingent upon moving Teixeira to another team or to the DH spot, or moving one of the other players set to occupy the DH spot to free it up for Teixeira or Pujols. Too many moving pieces and even the Yankees shouldn’t invest that much money into a 1B / DH combo.
    (I’m going to remember I wrote this when Pujols signs with the Yankees don’t worry)

  8. monkeyspanked 4 years ago

    The gall of Yankeedom is so ridiculous. Why don’t they just sign everybody, then just order the other teams to lose. Then they can be world champions every year.

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      Or maybe you should realize that was suggested by a writer and not a fan. I think 85% of Yankee fans know it’s not happening (Pujols).

    • East Coast Bias 4 years ago

      Because there aren’t enough roster spots duh

  9. How about this idea, very different then most but whatever. If CC opts out, let him walk.
    2012 rotation is very shaky, but that would be the down year.
    Hughes
    Burnett
    Nova
    Bentances
    Baunuelos

    in the 2013 offseason, assuming Montero has developed into a very good hitter, trade Teix for a young starter. Move Montero to first, let Romine/Sanchez battle for the Catcher spot in ST, and then that’s it. I’m very well aware that noone will agree with this, I don’t even agree with it.

    • Ben_Cherington 4 years ago

      if you dont agree then y post it?

      • i’m not really sure, just in case it happens i look a prophet :)

        • Ben_Cherington 4 years ago

          lol..dont hold your breath!

          • You never know… but if CC opts out, it wouldn’t be that bad an idea.

          • Still trying to figure out why Teixeira would waive his FULL no-trade clause to go anywhere by that time, especially leaving a winning franchise he wanted to sign with in the first place. You have to think about it from both sides. Teixeira had the chance to play “close to home” too, so you can’t use that excuse either. He loves New York.

    • sanchez has only played for like half a season…i wouldn’t expect him next year. as for betances and banuelos, that’s alot of stress on two young arms who both have not thrown more then 150 innings in a single season yet. i wouldn’t let cc walk, too much chance on unproven talent.

      • That’s why I said Romine/Sanchez, in case Sanchez wasn’t ready. And between the 3B’s, you can get the innings for 2 rotation spots. Especially since all 3 aregoing to be in AAA this year, where I promise you they will get 150 innings each. Then they’ll jump to 175 the next year in the mlb. That’s not a big deal in terms of gradual inning increases.

    • Guest 4 years ago

      I think that is what they would have to roll with if CC opts out.

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      You are being very optimistic. As much as I “got love” for Yankee top prospects we can’t assume that any of them are going to be sure things. There’s no way Cashman would go that route unless he absolutely is forced to.

      I can see a rotation in the near future of…

      CC, Hughes, Burnett/Nova, and then two of some of those rookies. The 2013 class of FA pitchers is great but who knows who will make it to the open market.

  10. BillB325 4 years ago

    Cubs sign Fielder and Sabathia and become a very overwieghted team………… in 2 ways

  11. BillB325 4 years ago

    a very overwieghted team*

  12. Ben_Cherington 4 years ago

    do you understand how good he is though. Price was very polished and an abboration

    ahhh reply fail! F U disqus!

    • BillB325 4 years ago

      its fine I didn`t say either of them were less then very good I`m just saying

  13. stop dreaming, teix has a full no-trade clause, he isn’t going anywhere.

  14. BaseballFanatic0707 4 years ago

    My only hope is that the Yankees don’t bid against themselves when it comes time to resign him, since no team out there would pony up 20m a year for him other than the Yanks.

    Of course, based on recent history, my hopes are rather far-fetched.

  15. Alvaro 4 years ago

    Both Pujols and Teix have played 3rd, Teix has a great arm…

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      Yeah but both are 30-31 and haven’t played there in years. No one should ask them to do that. Arod’s move to 3B was easier because he was a SS at the time.

  16. humbb 4 years ago

    Mets start the season 1-0!!

  17. Damn it, why couldn’t Pujols just resign with the Cardinals? Now an entire season of absurd rosterbation………..:(

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      An entier season? That’s a lot of Jurgens (is that what the kids use now)?

      • I have no idea what you’re getting at, but I’ll use this as an opportunity to say that even as an optimistic, life-long Braves fan……I dislike Jair Jurrjens for a number of reasons. I refuse to get into those reasons due to lack of logic, but basically I’d like to see him traded for say…….Brett Gardner? The Yankees could use Jurrjens and his 2009 season and the Braves could certainly use Gardner.

        • hardcoreforhardcore 4 years ago

          Jurgens is a lotion. He was getting at your rosterbation comment.

          • BentoBox 4 years ago

            Appropriate username too.

          • Ahh, I see a ton of people spell Jurrjens that way. Guess that flew by me.

        • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

          “What airline would JJ need to fly from for his physical?”

          B.Cashman

          • Doubt the Yankees are that desperate. It’s pretty clear that Jurrjens has relatively underwhelming stuff, ERA aside. He’s a solid #3. Not sure how big the Yankees are on Gardner, but he’s certainly more valuable than Jurrjens.

            Unless this is the second one in a row from you that flew by my head tonight. A little baked, if I’m honest.

        • InLeylandWeTrust 4 years ago

          *Whoosh*

        • East Coast Bias 4 years ago

          hahaaha excellent reply!

  18. Guest 4 years ago

    or let him walk, and get pitching…
    Oswalt, Carpenter, and (a possibly somewhat re-established) Brandon Webb will be available in Free agency (possibly)…
    Although they’re all kind of old and/or injury prone… so, a trade might be a better option.

    • Dylan 4 years ago

      Barring injuries, Oswalt will either retire or be in Philly next year…why would he leave that situation?

  19. woadude 4 years ago

    wow, I am seven likes away from being in the 500 club

  20. woadude 4 years ago

    Again, Let this sink into your pin striped thick skulls Albert Pujols will NOT BE A YANKEE….and here is another fact to sink in TEXIERA WON’T WAIVE HIS NO TRADE CLAUSE.

    • Guest 4 years ago

      Man you take this rumor pretty “seriously”. I can actually feel the anger and hate coming from this post at Yankees fans. Almost like a jilted lover or something….

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      “Put a finger on each side of your temple and rub in a circular motion and say moo-sah. It’s worked wonders for me all winter.”

      B. Cashman.

  21. dc21892 4 years ago

    So if I’m reading that right, it’s saying let Sabathia walk and sign Pujols. Well then, that leaves NY with virtually no pitching. Sure, go get all the offense you can and hope you score more than enough runs when your team is posting a 6 ERA all season.

    • How about the Yankees package their top 5 starting pitching prospects in an attempt to land Kelly Johnson?

  22. optionn 4 years ago

    The Yankee’s have 3 or 4 guys making the salary that is in the ballpark of what Pujols is going to command. If they want him bad enough they’ll just sign him to age 42 like they did Arod.

  23. Leonard Washington 4 years ago

    I doubt the Yanks do more than check in on Pujols. It would force them to create the worlds most expensive 1st/DH platoon. Not to mention it would jeopardize A-Rod, Jeter, and possibly Posada’s future with the team. As far as CC goes I think he will stay put either way because the Yanks cannot afford to lose him, there will continue to be very few elite SP options available.

  24. Sheehan forgets something. Moving Teixeira to DH and having Pujols play 1B still leaves a left side of the infield that is aging. Even if that happens, in 2012, Jeter would be 38 in June, and A-Rod 37 in July. They will need DH at bats and less time in the field. Hey, Sheehan— THINK THINGS THROUGH!

  25. 0bsessions 4 years ago

    “Why do you think it will go fine if it was left to Cashman? ”

    Personally, I’d say it’s because he’s exhibited this offseason that he actually gets the concept of where to draw the line. He’ll obviously overpay a guy and he makes some big mistakes, but he also seems to accept that outbidding himself just because he can is no way to do business.

  26. A lot of talk about money and players going here and there. CC is from the west coast, and if he were to op-out I think he would want to try and go back there. As he has started to establish roots in NY, I think he would have to think really hard about uprooting his kid(s) and wife again to go anywhere but “home.” On that line of thought, I give only the Giants and the Angels any chance of pulling him away.

    As far as getting AP and making Tex a DH… for a sports writer, his baseball logic is a bit off.

  27. stonepie 4 years ago

    haha i wrote about CC opting out and the yankees going after pujols in stead the other day. guess im not the only one thinking this…

  28. Ben_Cherington 4 years ago

    exactly…whos on first!

    haha funniest joke you ever made and didnt even realize it!!!! hahahaha

  29. Ferrariman 4 years ago

    not that he’s a full fledged rookie, but the Rays did fine with Price(not a rookie, but still new to starting and young) and Davis.

  30. i hope mark teixeira declines like wayne rooney

  31. This wouldn’t be a good for a big market team, but for a team that doesn’t have many funds it would make sense i guess.

  32. Crackis4lovers 4 years ago

    Price was a guy that was expected to spend very little time in the minors. He was a sure fire ace as prospects go. The Yankee prospects are good, but putting them in the same sentence as Price is ridiculous. Price and Strasburg are two guys that could have come right to the majors. The B’s are not.

    Wade Davis has not really proven all that much yet. He has had his struggles.

    This plan would be bound to fail miserably IMO. As a Red Sox fan I’d love to see them do this.

  33. woadude 4 years ago

    Couldn’t agree more and I would like to add that the Yankees are NOT getting Pujols under any circumstances, it just doesn’t work, shed some tears Yankee fans but reality is right in front of you, he wears number 25 and is under a Yankee contract, which mean no other team would take on his remaining contract.

  34. Guest 4 years ago

    What about the Nationals? They offered him more $$$ plus they were all in with Lee. Why isn’t that possible if they lay it out for Tex that they want to move him?

  35. MB923 4 years ago

    Off topic, but welcome back! We thought your account got deleted.

  36. woadude 4 years ago

    The Idea of them signing Pujols is nutso because he has no position to play, unless they DH A-Rod and put him at third, the idea of the Yankees paying 27 million a year for a DH is in itself the most ridiculous thing ever.

  37. RedSoxDynasty 4 years ago

    Agreed! How can Sheehan say with a straight face that losing CC would benefit the Yankees? It would cripple them and take them out of playoff contention totally IMO! And never count the Yanks out of signing any FA, especially Pujols!

  38. jwsox 4 years ago

    but they will wind up doing it anyway when arod is at the end of his deal he will be the full time DH making that much…

  39. Guest 4 years ago

    But the Nation said they would love to grab Pujols by flipping AGONE & Pujols between the DH & 1B position & it was applauded. What gives? Oh that’s right. Anything to bash the Yankees. How is the Red Sox scenario any better then the Yankees?

  40. tomymogo 4 years ago

    I’m guessing Pujols is not gonna change positions, but if the Yankees really wanted him, and they offered him a ton of money, I’m guessing he could still play LF…….Now I don’t believe that Pujols will decide solely on money, at least thats the impression he has given me.

  41. No they wouldn’t save money there, i realize that. 30 million for pujols, the 20 million that was for Teix is used on CC when/if he opts out. Your budget increases by 10 million and you keep CC and get the best hitter of the decade.

  42. It’s essentially what Sheehan did in the article above.

    I love discussing baseball. What I don’t love is discussing unreasonable trade scenario’s and FA signings. Every fan from every team is going to give his or her case for signing Albert Pujols. Since I’m already unbelievably bored already with it, I think it’s best to stay off the internet until November. That’s impossible though, as it’s part of my job.

    I just pray the Cardinals give him 10/300 at some point during the season.

  43. woadude 4 years ago

    I have made 1239, and after reading this 1240 comments.

  44. MB923 4 years ago

    Do they have the Hall Of Very Good also?

  45. young starters = Hughes, Nova, Phelps, Noesi (2011)
    Battling for a spot = Hughes, Joba, Mitre, Gaudin (2010)
    Developing = Cano, Hughes,Gardner, Nunez, Robertson

  46. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    Why are you assuming any of us are shedding tears?

  47. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    how about it wasn’t $28 mil?

  48. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    You make it sound like we’re talking about Adam LaRoche here.

  49. RedSoxDynasty 4 years ago

    Anythings possible as these two teams try to one up the other!

  50. woadude 4 years ago

    First off, I am not a Red Sox fan, I am a Mariners fan, second if you consider that AGon cost only 6.5 million, he has whats called trade value, also consider he is a FA just like Mr. Pujols, I have already stated on how he cannot be under a contract because of fraud….so a player making 6.5 million comparred to 23 million a year is much more moveable than a guy who is under control for the next 6 got it?

  51. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    Did I miss something? Did we finish in 4th place last year?

  52. Honestly, the Yankees have the highest payroll in baseball and you’re acting as if their winning ways are over for a while. 2011 could be rough, but at worst I see them finishing with a respectable record. Surely they’re capable of bringing in top talent pretty regularly.

    See, I really do dislike the Yankees and it’s irritating that I end up defending them when someone’s being illogical.

  53. Guest 4 years ago

    They were willing to take him on for more per year. They must have taken that into account when they made that offer.

  54. Cano, Hughes, Montero, Gardner is a good start in my mind. If you get Joba in there, because most people expect him to bounce back somewhat, its a similar core to what the yankees used to have.

    Jeter – Cano
    Hughes – Pettitte
    Montero – Posada
    There was a point where i could have said Rivera – Joba

  55. I’m not saying these younger players are going to be as good, I’m just pointing out the old core four to the new core.

  56. Marky Mark 4 years ago

    just because hes a great ball player doesnt mean other teams will pay for the latter of the contract he signed, AND give up a pitcher.. highly unlikely

  57. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    Hahaha. Why do ppl act as if the Yanks don’t have several home grown guys from the last 7 years on the team?

    Didn’t Cabrera and Gardner battle 2 years ago? Didn’t Hughes and Joba battle last spring? Aren’t Romine and Montero battling this year?

  58. not trying to be funny its truth

  59. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    That bicycle kick goal was pretty sweet though!

  60. Dylan 4 years ago

    There is a mutual option for 16m if I am correct…

  61. MB923 4 years ago

    The Nationals offered the most money but not at an AAV. They were willing to offer $200 million but for 10 years. He took the Yankees for 8 years and $180+

    So less total, but more AAV. Kind of like Cliff Lee when he choose Philly over Texas and NY.

  62. MB923 4 years ago

    Why do you think it will go fine if it was left to Cashman?

  63. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    Welll….your outfit sucked!!

    ****Ok…let me first make it clear that I don’t see any of this ever happening and it shouldn’t even be entertained. However, if I had to think of a scenario where it COULD happen then let’s try. This is just a “what if” type of luncay*****

    First let’s agree that if Tex was a free agent this year @ age 31 in April a 6/$132 deal would not be a crazy thought. Same age as AP, not as good but a great alternative to something over $200-$300 mil lasting into AP’s late 30’s early 40’s. You would be getting him for ages 31-36.

    Let’s look at scenarios.

    What if?? the Angles felt that it was going to be near impossible to resign Weaver because of discussions had with Boras recently about an extension on thru the 2011 season. We already know that the Angels had interest in him already and were willing to pay similar amounts annually into his mid 30’s.

    Weaver (plus an agreed to extension of 5/$100 mil) and Wells (and all of what’s owed) for Tex (all of his contract) w/ the Angels giving him an extra year @ $20 mil to waive the no-trade? Angles save $62 mil and put that towards Tex. Yanks get a top of rotation arm in return and can then either sign AP or maybe even use Montero there if they fail to sign AP (doubtful).

    What if? Cardinals are unable to do anything positive with AP. He refutes their best offer. What if the Yanks offered them….

    Tex and $25 mil (reduces annual cost for Tex to $18 mil per) for Chris Carpenter and and prospect not named Miller.

    What if? the Cubs miss out on AP and Z has a good year but agrees to waive a no-trade for more years added to the contract?

    Tex for Zambrano straight up each team pays whatever is due? Yanks sign AP.

    Again…no way should the Yanks pursue AP but in the interest of entertainment….just throwing it out there.

  64. MB923 4 years ago

    Well at least they are better run than the team across the town :p (I know you’re a Red Sox fan, I’m just saying the most poor run MLB team in NY is not the team that plays in the Bronx)

  65. …yes? A-Rod is a complete player. When I said “1B / DH combo” I meant two players, one of which playing first base the other DH. Not one player who plays first base and / or DH. Paying for a complete player makes more sense than relegating a complete player like Teixeira or Pujols to strictly DH duty for that kind of money. If Pujols or Teixeira could play anywhere other than first or designated hitter, I’d say NY should go for it.

  66. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Yeah but who are they offering? Tex for Lannan straight up?! You can’t replace Sabathia with Marquis! This whole trading Tex thing is ridiculous who ever is giving credence to the idea.

  67. MB923 4 years ago

    reality2100 said it, not me.

  68. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Wrong. Check his deal. He’s making like 20-21mil in the last few years of his deal.

  69. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Hypotheticals, right? I’d rank the most possible to least possible as follows:
    1. Angels
    2. Cards
    3. Cubs

  70. 0bsessions 4 years ago

    The glaring hole in that Angels scenario is that most people would probably rather have Weaver @ 20 million for five than Texeira at $22 for six, especially considering Teixeira’s absolutely abysmal splits outside of NYS the last two years. I wouldn’t touch that deal with a ten foot pole.

    The Cubs and Cardinals situations are feasible in a vague sense, though I’d find it unlikely. The Cubs one, in particular, because Z is signed a lot shorter than Teixeira, who’s honestly signed to way too many years.

  71. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Easy on the haterade, dude. Not ALL of your posts have to say something negative about the Yanks. Did Jeter steal your girlfriend or something? It’s okay, you’re not alone.

  72. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Haha you’re right, my bad.

  73. He’s assuming none of you are shedding tears, but is telling you to start. To be honest, all these wild rumours about teams performing amazing feats to turn their roster upside down for the chance to land Pujols are rather annoying.

  74. MB923 4 years ago

    Seems as if the Angels never get who they want who’s a free agent, I’d put them 30th possibly.

  75. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    Tex’s contract ends at age 36. That’s typically the same cut of age that the Sox extend/sign their own players/FA thru. I’m not sure how his contract is “too long” compared to the ages most superstars sign their 1st FA deal thru. Sounds a little bit like some hateration going on.

  76. East Coast Bias 4 years ago

    Unless he opts out during the world series. Then he’ll only get like 1.5m extra after firing his agent.

  77. 0bsessions 4 years ago

    Haterade versus putting words in mouth: where did I say he’s signed too long? I simply said that I’d rather have Weaver for a lower AAV and less years committed than Teixeira for more money and more years. In basic terms, I’d take Weaver over Teixeira money aside, add in that Teiexeira’s more expensive and signed longer than you think Weaver would sign leads me to the realm of: why would they do that? I understand it’s Reagins, but c’mon?

    Now, I see how you brought up taking Wells to compensate, but considering the Angels traded for him mere months ago, I have to assume they had a reason to and wouldn’t just dump him in NY just so they can get back a guy whose splits outside of hitters’ parks the last few years are incredibly questionable.

    That all said, if I’m Reagins, I MIGHT make that deal if you threw in Gardner. Otherwise, I’d rather take my chances trying to see if I can re-sign Weaver.

    They didn’t offer him more money, they were out bid by the Red Sox who were just outbid by the Yankees….

    A-Rod doesn’t suck at third, if anything he is a natural 3rd baseman and was a stellar SS.

    I think you misunderstood. The Red Sox will be in on Pujols keeping AGONE. They will rotate them between 1B & DH, at least if they acquire Pujols. Again, how is this any worse then what the Yankees propose?
