Randy is a Yankee
Looks like the Yanks traded for Randy. Of course, they gave up Vazquez, Dioner Navarro and Eric Duncan in order to get him. If Randy stays healthy and pitches for the Yanks for another 3 years, then maybe it's worth it. I'm not happy giving up 2 of the Yankees top minor leaguers, but then again the Yanks have had a less than stellar record of developing young players, and Navarro, though young, didn't play so well after getting promoted to AAA.
Questions that remain unanswered:
- How long will Randy pitch for the Yankees?
- WIll Randy stay healthy and effective?
- Who will replace Posada when he becomes unable to catch any longer?
- Will the Yankees ever again bring up a player from their minors to play a major role on their team?
I guess we'll have to wait and see. Up next? Carlos Beltran (or perhaps a healthy JD Drew).
