Yankees

The Yankees trying to trade there way to victory is not a new idea, but i dont know if some of these people have any chance of ending up as a Yankee. The Angels are not going to deal washburn unless they get a lot in return, and anyone they get would have to be ready for the majors now because they are making a world series run.

Randy Johnson may not be on a team making a run for the world series but he is very well respected by the diamondbacks front office so even if they are looking to deal him, i dont see him going to NYY because i doubt he wants to go there.

Zito is a possibility although i dont think Oakland is ready to give up on a shot at the World Series and like Anaheim wont deal a star pitcher without getting boatloads of talent in return.

Redman, Estes, and Moyer are all possibilities because all are on struggling teams who will trade them for some minor league talent. Sabathia is a possibility but only once Cleveland is sur ethat they cant still win their division. Although they are a building organization and trading a great, young pitcher may not be the angle they choose to take. I think the yankees are going to have to accept mediocore left-handers if they want to trade for one.
Let's play two!

I don't think the Yankees would even think about getting Pedro. I know Steinbrenner wants to win at all costs but the disrespect Pedro has shown and given the Yankee organization should keep him from becoming a Yankee. IMO, he's over the hill anyway and if neccesary, I'm sure the scouts and Cashman could convince Steinbrenner not to go after him. I also doubt Pedro personally, would sign with the team.

The Yankees don't TRADE their way to victories, they BUY their way to 'em :-D
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

Forgive me, getting to be over the hill. He hasn't pitched well overall this year and I think he's just wearing out. He may be good this year and possibly next year, but to sign him this offseason to a multi-year deal, does not make any sense to me.
