Reports are the Yanks made their offer. My guess? As before, 6 Yr. $140. I’m seeing, reading and hearing anywhere between 138 and 150 M. We’ll see.
HOF pitcher Bob Feller, 92, is now in hospice care. Prayers for this legend, who lost 3 2/3 years of his career to serving his country during WWII.
Clemens’ trial moved from April, 2011 to July due to “voluminous evidence.” Hmmm. If it is that voluminous, does Roger really stand a chance? Perjury against Congress is NOT a minor little crime.
Andy Pettitte is pulling for the Yanks to land Lee. No surprise. Could this be what it would take to get Andy back as the #4 starter (behind CC, Lee and Hughes and ahead of A.J.)? Just a hunch, but right now my gut—from all I read, hear and see—says that Andy returning is only 30%. Maybe signing Lee gets it to 70%.
Lastly, a rumor the Phils could be interested in Greinke? I’d consider it a mistake. First off, it would take a lot. START with Domonic Brown. Then there is Greinke’s social anxiety disorder to deal with. Think that would play in Philly (or NY or Boston)? I think not.
