I wouldn't overpay for Santana -- but leave the possibility open.

I hate this. Its fine if the Yankees want to trim payroll. But you don't draw lines in the sand when it comes to Arod or potentially Johan. These are guys the Yankees should overpay for. I mean, christ, its the Yankees.

Hughes - Chamberlain - Wang - Kennedy - Mussina.

That rotation would have talent, but if you start the season with that rotation I'd pick the Yankees for third in the AL East behind Boston and Toronto. Starting three rookies is a recipe for disaster.

I don't know how much stock to put into the "having rookies learn how to pitch, stay healthy, play in the MLB or in NY" idea, but if you put any value on that, having Moose be that guy would be horribly horrible and Pettite's the best option.

I think Pettite retires but I hate it.

1. Trade Hughes for Santana (I think Kennedy's a better pitcher anyway),

2.Melky is gonna be a great centerfielder once he gets a full season at the position under his belt( his numbers were pretty damn good, and defensifvly hes in the top tier already)

3. Resign Posada, and Riviera (theres no better free agents available)

4. 1st Base is a problem but I dont think andrew jones is the solution.

5. Next Years Hopeful Rotation should be Johan, Wang, Pettite, Chamberlain, Kennedy.

If by Moose you mean Pettite. If Pettite walks, he walks. But if he doesn't we should trade Moose.

Totally fair. I was just making my one-of-the-other preference known.
