A few windows I have open in my browser that could not be worked into individual posts:
- Tom Verducci picked his All-Stars, and he only has two Yankees (Jeter and Rivera). I think Teixeira and Sabathia both have a decent shot as well, but his team is fairly reasonable. I will have more on the ASG once the actual teams are released.
- From Buster Olney:
- Ken Singleton was a fine player, ahead of his time with a .388 career OBP. I really had no idea.
- Joe Posnanski on Mariano
and the Yankee mythos. Just an excellent read.
The two sides haggled for a time, and in the end, the Pirates — with a payroll one-quarter the size of the Yankees’ — relented, because it makes sense for them to save as much money as possible, even $400,000, in what’s becoming a summer of frugality. This small trade says a lot about what’s going on in baseball this season. The expectation among a lot of general managers is that you’re going to see a lot of teams looking to make deals like this, eating some salary to get rid of as much as they can. The small handful of teams that appear willing to take on salary — the Red Sox, the Phillies, the Giants, the Mets, perhaps a few others — will be in position to dictate terms in what will be a buyer’s market.
Sounds like a buyer’s market, which bodes well for the Yankees.
