Need new Sheets...


As a Yankees fan... i can honestly say...

I want Ben Sheets!

Well... more than AJ Burnett...

in 8 seasons, Sheets has pitched 30 games for the Brewers 4 times... not exactly great, but it is far more comforting than looking at Burnett's 3 in 10 years.

The Sheets deal is a shorter commitment type deal, i really can't see AJ Burnett staying healthy with the Yankees, and if we lock him up for 5 years... yikes.

If the Yankees sign Sheets, they can focus on Derek Lowe (though i still want CC, i just don't see it happening anymore, will elaborate shortly...) Having signed both Sheets and Lowe, they can then focus their attention on Mark Teixeira, not necessarily giving him the 10 year deal he wants, but letting him know his time in NY will be worth his while...

back to CC, Yankee fans, i haven't yet given up hope... but it truly looks to me like he is keeping the offer on the table to get more money from a West coast team like the Angels or Dodgers. To me, if he was actually considering playing for the Yankees, he'd have taken that whopping 140 million dollar contract.

I still haven't given up hope though... anything is possible, they could make a 'Jack in the box' in New York, let's be honest, that's the only reason he wants to stay on the West. Come on Hal... make it happen!

*Update Wednsday: 7:07 AM* Looks like there was some agreement last night to build Sabathia his own 'all you can eat buffet' eatery, and has started looking more like he is going to sign with the Yankees.
