Re: 2009 Winter Meetings thread
I like this deal for the Yanks, but it's not as bad from the Arizona front as some of you suggest. Sherzer is in no way a TOR arm. He throws too many pitches and can't go deep into games. The Backs know that. I watched the guy a lot last year and he's not that great. I would think that Jackson is a better pitcher although you wonder why he's been traded twice in 2 years. Kennedy is a 4th starter with upside if he ever get's healthy. I am guessing Johnny Damon just got notice that he's going elsewhere unless his demands drop big time.
"My mission is to be the ray of hope, the guy who stands out there on that beautiful field and owns up to his mistakes and lets people know it's never completely hopeless, no matter how bad it seems at the time. I have a platform and a message, and now I go to bed at night, sober and happy, praying I can be a good messenger." -Josh Hamilton
