Yeah, chances are that I'm not going to make any friends here. But...the Yankees are just going to dominate the entire AL like it was 1999. The Redsox? FEH! Fat David Wells and Matt Clement? Ha! There is no way they can contend. The 2005 NY Yankees 110-52 and the World Series Champions! Yay!
Playing devil's advocate... if they weren't going to move him anyway (which is now obviously the case) what's so wrong with an angle that allowed him to job to the two biggest 'net darlings out there in an 8 day period?
