Just a quick question. Who's going to replace Jorge Posada? He's 33, and doesn't have that much left to give to the organization with production at the plate.

This is one reason why I think they should have never trade Dioner Navarro.

I liked the trade for Johnson, except for Navarro. He could be a great catcher in the majors for 8-10 years, and the Dodgers got a great player in him. As for a replacement, the Yankees could call up a minor leaguer to learn under Posada like he did under Girardi. A candidate is Will Nieves. He is only 26 and has a .294 BA in AAA Columbus. So he could catch for 4-5 years for New York. Or, the more probable route, they could go for a free agent such as Johnny Estrada or Ramon Hernandez. I actually don't know how soon they will be available, though...

26 is pretty old for being in AAA. He's probably not the answer.

I don't think that Johnny Estrada is going anywhere. From what I've heard/read, the Braves are very happy with him. Except when Darin Erstad ran over him at the plate, LOL. Sorry, had to say that. About Ramon Hernandez, I've been hearing trade rumors about him, but nothing concrete. I don't think he's going anywhere either. Only probable choice, is Jason Kendall of the A's. The A's have two top Catcher prospects, so they could deal Jason Kendall. They'll probably ask for a pitching prospect in return, knowing the A's.

But the Braves have a very good catching prospect in Brian McCann. One of them will have to go.

Felix isn't much...Plus I don't think he will come to new York he has to shave and cut his hair and follow alot of rules the Sox don't have.

I think Felix is a very good pitcher. His career ERA is 3.44, and he has proved to be an outstanding setup man in the past, most notably with the 2001 Giants. And about Damon: I am pretty sure he would cut his hair for $55 million if that was the best offer. He has already shown he dosn't care where he plays as long as he gets his money.

Can't believe I forgot about him. Um, then I guess Estrada will be traded for a pitching prospect(s). That would be the probable thing.

My main point on Damon is why keep getting older and more expensive with a guy like Damon when you could get a guy entering his prime and is going to reach 29 at around the same time as Can and Wang.

Scott Spiezio of the 2002 Angles surely thought he was a good pitcher. He thought he wsa a great pitcher when he let Scott hit the 3-run homer to win Game 6 for the Angels, which sent the series to a Game 7, which we all know how that turned out. I think Felix Rodriguez gets a bouqet of flowers ever Valentine's Day from Scott Spiezio.

Man, I know. It's also due in part to the fact I'm playing MVP Baseball 2005 right now, and trying to win against the Rockies in extra innings.

Letting the Rockies take you to extra innings...That's pitiful. Very Happy

What team do you use? By the way, I just won the World Series with the Yankees going 173-0. A-Rod finished the year with a .397 BA, 77 HR and 209 RBI.

Anyway, don't sleep on the Braves' Brayan Pena. He is hitting .332 in AAA, and is only 23 years old...

Maybe it's time to up the difficulty a little...
