Yeah but it’s still an upgrade. Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera were their oldest players last year. I think they had pretty good seasons. And the Mets are asking a lot for the oldest SP in baseball in Colon. I’d also say there’s no argument that the oldest DH and oldest active closer (teammates) are 2 of the best in baseball still as well.

Age is completely irrelevant outside of multi-year/long contracts imo. Production outways it every time. Byrd’s option only vests with 600 or more PA in 2015, so that’d mean he was healthy all year. Not bad .

According to WFAN they didn’t have to give up much at all. Apparently a lowly rated infielder. Not Ref.

Not sure about that..Cashman walked into his kitchen and took Byrd and stuffed a $twenty in the cookie jar…Ruben will notice it in the morning. August 1st.

Hey, at least they’re trying to improve, whereas the Red Sox lost about 4 wins today..

Maybe there’s a fake Bowden too? That would explain most of his articles.

I’ll take that! He’s an upgrade in RF

The Yankees need to make 1 more move, a Starting Pitcher.

Jim Bowden is wrong 99.99 percent of time. This trade won’t happen. Huff’s dog had it first!

The last time Byrd was in the AL East worked out marvelously. The youth movement should work out great for the Yanks.

Amaro has been telling teams all day that he wants their top three prospects in exchange for Byrd or any other player on his roster. If the Yankees got him for basically nothing, I smell collusion and something doesn’t appear right.

I think the top 3 discussions were only on hamels, the only guy with any real prospective trade value

Yankees promised Amaro a job after he gets canned in the offseason….that would be my guess haha
