That Other Team

Ok, time to give some of our YF contingent a little love. See, there's a certain non-fireballing, 32 year old lefty who relies on control rather than velocity still on the market right now, with a couple of suitors. Let's have some fun – what are the predictions for where this aging veteran lands, and for how much? 

Put your estimates in the comments. And also put your thoughts on what happens if he loses just a tiny bit of that pinpoint control… 

(we kid…)

  • I say 7/158M, Yankees.

  • 7/161, same as CC

  • I think 7/147, Rangers

  • (10 years, $275 million)
    ;)
    He has to sign a 7 year contract, right? Is he really going to be the first guy to turn down the money in the history of mankind?
    Really though, 7 years, $161 like sammy said…

  • Cashman bribed the Orioles into signing Mark Reynolds in order to bait Cliff Lee to come to the AL East.
    Yankees, 7/150

  • Also, if Lee signs elsewhere then Cashman gets canned within 3 hours of the signing. Totally not his fault though.

  • The Sox should offer Lee an eight year deal (for eight bucks) and see if the agent can convince the Yankees to keep going!

  • NYY, 7/175

  • Holy shit Johnny Damon:
    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2010/12/damon-would-play-in-boston-giants-not-interested.html
    Vetoes a trade mid-season last year because he loves Detroit, but is now begging to come back now that we have Crawford/Gonzalez

  • ““Obviously, I’d love to return to Boston,” he said. “I loved playing there, and I think it would be a perfect fit,”
    Ha! Perfect fit where? Johnny cant reach first base from short stop with his arm.

    sam-YF December 9, 2010, 12:33 pm
  • I am fuming at Johnny Damon suddenly wanting back in Boston.

    Atheose - SF December 9, 2010, 12:36 pm
  • “I think it would be a perfect fit”
    This is such a great line. Thank God for professional athletes.

    SF December 9, 2010, 12:41 pm
  • It would have been a perfect fit last season when we were missing 2/3 of our outfield and were trying to make the playoffs. Not to mention the last thing we need right now is another left-handed bat.

  • Johnny Damon is rivaling Luke Scott for dumbest line of the offseason.
    I say the Yankees, 7/175. I hope he does the right thing and chooses Texas at 6/144, or something like that.

    7/175 for Johnny Damon?! Do it Cashman, do it!!

  • for the sake of the sports pundits that have already installed the sox as the al east favorites, i hope you’re right paul…it would be messy for them to have to backtrack on that now…hehe

    dc December 9, 2010, 1:04 pm
  • 7/160 ought to do it
    Let’s also postulate on Adrian Gonzalez while we’re at it. Let’s say his shoulder never fully heals and he loses his power stroke. (We kid…)

    Steve A December 9, 2010, 1:10 pm
  • I’ll say NYY at 7/175 (plus $1, hey it works on the Price is Right!!).
