So much for only having 15-20 million to spend.. Another example of the "experts" getting it all wrong.

I hope my fellow Yankees fans don't freak out here. Anaheim needed to make these moves. They didn't even make the playoffs last year.


We will make a move or two, but please, don't freak out. We're in good shape, and wouldn't be surprised if we make a great stealth move. I can see us trying to sign Darvish. It doesn't cost us any young talent, he will pay for himself with the new Japanese deals the Yankees can make, and it will put Hughes in the bullpen, which will make the best bullpen in the league even better.


We're okay. Not just now, but potentially for the next 5 - 10 years.

What new Japanese deals? The Red Sox have said they have recovered about $10M in Japanese marketing revenue for Matsuzaka. That still leaves them with an out of pocket expense of over $90M on a 5 year deal. He's not worth $18M a year. If the Yanks spend $100M on Darvish are they going to get anything close to a $20M a year pitcher? Unless he is as good as CC, the answer is no.

the yanks brand travles better to other countries than the red sox's does. The fact that they make 10 million back means that the yanks would probably make 40  million back in that same amount of time.


That being said, the rangers are going to try to do something big, and darvish mught be it.


then again, they may need to get more of a sure thing that they have seen pitch here, like gio or danks.

Don't blame the "experts" they only report what they find out.  Anything can just happen within seconds.

I totally agree.


I don't know about the Darvish-thing, though. However, if it does happen or any other pitcher comes onboard, it might make total sense to put Hughes in the bullpen....given his inability to stay healthy.
