In fact, Big Bad pointed out the lack of "love" for Bailey, and I noted that no one picked Coghlan. Turns out, they both won the awards yesterday. As a Marlins fan, I'm happy for Coghlan....he really helped keep the team in the playoff race down the stretch, and at the time he got called up, we were desperate for an OF that could hit. If he faltered, they didn't seem to have a backup plan.
How much does Jorge Posada make? In financial terms, if the Yanks did get Giles/Kendall, it might make more sense to keep Kendall and trade Posada. Of course, given Posada's popularity both with the fans and the team, this is pretty unlikely.
