    But he did sign the major league deal so he's not a prospect any more. He'll be arbitration eligible after this year and while he probably won't make over $1M he's always going to have people saying, "Oh, give him time and he'll be a good defensive player" all his career. If you can trade Pena in a deal like they did for Guillen or Boone then you have to do it. I like WMP but he's just not going to get much better defensively and he's a liability on the base paths to put it kindly.

    You guys are going to love this: Marty said that he was talking to people yesterday and they told him that if Billy Beane were GM, he'd trade Dunn for 3 good arms.

    That ball by Howard took a wicked,mean, nasty bounce off the scoreboard. It kicked hard away from "Thrill". I could have went to third on that one.

    I just noticed for the first time that Gameday says Felipe Lopez, Jr. Sounds weird.

    Its time for the meltdown... as Rollins steals 3rd base crawling.

    Boy, did we ever job the Yankees on that deal.
    The Yankees went to the World Series that year on the back of an Aaron Boone homer. When Boone blew out his ACL they went out and got themselves a heaping helping of A-Rod. I'll guarantee you that if you went to the Yankees and asked them if they'd do the Boone deal again, they'd give you a rousing, "You bet your (insert favorite body here)."

    The Yankees trade for today with the absolute confidence they have the resources to tackle tomorrow when that moves to the front of the line. With one swing of the bat against Tim Wakefield, Aaron Boone justified that trade for the Yankees.

    Unlike the current Reds GM, Beane would be able to identify three good arms and negotiate the deal.

    This club tends to defeat expectations. When you think they can't possibly blow it, they do. When you think it's a given that they'll yak it up, they hold on.

    And then Boone proceeded to go on another one of his famous dirt naps as the Marlins shredded the Yanks in the Series. One homer. Sure it was dramatic. But it was one homer.

    The Yankees certainly could have used Claussen this season. Now they're barely clinging to their lead and may not even make the postseason.

    And a sensible Yankee fan would see the Boone/Claussen deal for what it was--just another step in depleting the Yankee's ability to bargain for trade deadline talent.

    Watching the Reds use four relievers this inning makes me once again wonder if there's anyone who thinks this makes for enjoyable baseball?

    You get late into a game and then the managers suck the life out of the park. It's even hard for the home crowd to care after this many bullpen calls. MLB can't ban this sort of thing soon enough.
