The Boss isn't wasting any time reworking the bullpen.

There are the relevant links to ESPN.com

Each of these guys is making approx. $3.5m/year, for two years. For some reason, as a Sox fan, these deals bother me more than the Sheffield deal. Gordon and Quantrill are a couple of solid relievers, and go a long way to remaking a Yankee bullpen that lost its share of games last season. I guess we can't look forward to beating up on Felix Heredia and Antonio Osuna anymore.

Nah, we can still pick on Heredia. They re-upped him for two years too.

Ah, sweetness. Thank you, Dr. Jay.

I think it's safe to say Jeff Nelson is history, so where does that leave the Yankee pen?

Heredia, White (if they re-sign him), Weaver (unless he starts or is traded), Quantrill, Gordon, Rivera. Am I missing anyone? Is Chris Hammond still under contract? It's worth noting that, of the 6 players listed, 3 of them are left-handed. What we don't know, of course, is how closely this will resemble the finished product.

It seems the Yanks are also in talks to land Vazquez, and this pleases me. We already know the Yanks will pull in another high-profile quality starter this offseason; the best the rest of us can hope for is that they have to give up Nick Johnson, Alfonso Soriano, or both in order to do it. And I would love to get Nick Johnson out of that Yankee lineup. Not only is he a great young hitter, he takes pressure off Giambi's bum knee.

It also sounds like Steinbrenner is getting more involved in the direct operation of the team. Sounds like the bad years of the 80s for me!

Incidentally, I wonder if the Yankees will ever straighten out their bullpen before Rivera anymore.

Gordon will go a very long way to straightening things out as a set-up man there. He was lights-out for the White Sox for most of last season, and as a Pale Hose fan I am really disappointed they couldn't bring him back.

Steve Karsay is coming off of surgery. And I think White already had another year on his deal.

And I hate having to lose Nick Johnson for Vazquez, but I still think it's better than paying 13 million for an out of shape Colon.

I personally would love to replace Kevin Millar at first with Nick Johnson. I agree that Vazquez is better than Colon, but we're talking about the Yankees here. They went into camp with seven starters last year, and they will likely do it again. Why not just sign Milwood AND Colon?

It's all part of the plan hatched by America's second most evil George to fill his middle relief with a bunch of shlubs who used to play for the Sox. Maybe they could get Dennis Lamp and Dana Kiecker.
