The bloodbath has begun. Travis Lee’s 2005 option has been declined, as has the 2006 option for Paul Quantrill, leaving us to wonder whether he will return for the final year of his contract. Our guess: don’t expect to see him on the 05 roster.
What will the Yankees do at first? Will Giambi ever return to health? Will his offensive numbers justify his poor defense? Will Olerud stay on? Will the acquisition of Beltran leave Bernie and Jason to battle over the DH slot? So much time to mull….
