Actually been wanting to do a Yankee's post for awhile, after hitting that subject a lot in the early part of the season, I've really dried up lately. But now is not the time to really get into it, but I can start.
Before I start, tho'...I'll take a moment to point to Challies' amusing trade post.
Good batch of trade reports. Cashman is clearly in control of things this year. Shawn, you did great last year, but you're just not doing it in '06--enjoy Pittsburgh. Wilson sounds like a plus, Lidle has to help, and Abreu can't hurt. Hope Torre sticks to the plan and doesn't play Bernie over Melky because of it. Little worried about Andy Phillips, too, in all this. But hey...it's a good day to be a Yankee-fan.
Larry Mahnken, over at Replacement Level Yankees summed it up pretty well:
I'm happy. You're hearing a lot of sour grapes out there ("it can't be fun rooting for a team that buys players!), but we all know it's bull----. It's fun to have a team that'll go out and get those guys when they're available to them. It's fun being in the playoffs every year. It's fun being a Yankees fan.
And all those whining fans of other teams would love it if their teams did the same thing, too.
