Yeah, it's certainly possible.On the other hand, a suspension lasting as long as has been proposed would save the Yankees about $34 million. More than just saved salary, that money wouldn't count against the team's luxury tax threshold. That could open the door for the Yankees to aggressively pursue a variety of high-priced players, ranging from re-signing Robinson Cano and Hiroki Kuroda to courting free agents like Shin Soo-Choo, Jacoby Ellsbury, Matt Garza, Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Hunter Pence, and others.
Yankees, Mets, Rangers, Giants, Mariners, Cubs, Phillies, Redsox, Tigers...
It seems near impossible for Reds to sign Choo.
no need to retain arroyo at all
As for Choo while I would love to keep him, I don't see any way possible. He will command too much money. The only way is if he gives us a discount because likes Cincinnati. I still would be hesitant to give him a lot of years. I don't think that would be in the interest of the team.
guess who has more walks than K's
Encarnacion who hit his 30th homer today, boy the reds paid a lot for Rolen's "leadership" as well as his error in game 3
Plus EE and Ruben Mateo sure was a huge price that Texas paid to get Rob Bell.
I agree that the reds got the best of the rob bell trade, but to disparage ee's performance is not fair, after all the present reds third baseman is in throes of an 0-30 performance and last years "clubhouse leader" lost game 3 of the playoffs
I was not trying to disparage EE's performance but rather to point out how little it has to do with the trade. He was available two more times after being waived by teams after he left the Reds. He was hardly seen as a big price to pay at the time and at the time most Reds fans, at lest on here, were more upset/ concerned by the loss of the minor league pitchers than they were by the loss of EE.
good point I am surprised too but the guy is a fantastic hitter
I have often thought where he would play with the reds who desperately need right handed prowess, he certainly is a butcher at third but he is so much better than rolen or frazier at the plate
I mean the error that Rolen made in the tenth inning of game three when the giants barely had a pulse
