Speaking of albatrosses, what about A-Rod? Jeter?

ARod hit 30 hr and 125 rbi last year despite being hurt. How is that an albatross?

Jeter I am not happy about, but the Yankees have money to burn so oh well. As long as they move him to LF and sign Hanley Ramirez next year I am cool with it.

Hanley Ramirez is under contract until 2014 with Florida.

There have been rumors that he is headed to the Yankees, but I thought it was through free agency. I guess they would have to trade for him.

I agree he is a good fit for this clubhouse and this should be an exciting season for them

I realize there isn't a cap, but the Sox do have a budget, and although they have one of the largest in the league, they do have a limit. I like the signing and I think Crawford is a great fit with this team, but he is still overpaid based on his production. I'm just happy he is young enough that we will have him for most of his prime.

So what's the Beltre market looking like? Guy could be great in StL, too bad they just spent a ton of money on Lance Berkman....to play OF every day.

That's a pretty garbage speculative article, honestly.

There's no rumours there, just some writer writing about one of the best SS's in the game and speculating (baselessly, on his own) that he'd be a good Yankee (well, duh... he'd be a good anyone) in 4 years.

I mean, anyone could write that article.

It's cool. Just trade Rasmus to the Jays.

They'll take him for you to free up the OF spot.

Of that, I am aware.
