Guess who's paying for A-Rod's contract?

A month later, it’s finally official.

    So much for that “All the free agents are going to live with Joe Torre” argument.

    I want to see 50+ saves every year and some big post-season appearances. Then I’ll swallow my tongue re: $15M.

    • http://riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I can live with the $15M per. The security blanket feeling is well worth it.

    LOL. We need a “Where are they now” segment for all the hysterical commenters that were all over the place back in October.

      I am still here and commenting.

    it know this is off topic and all but is it too early to ask if you guys know who the “watch” will be next year? can we have a vote? I would vote for an a-jax watch

    • dan

      It’s definitely not too early, I remember asking about this once Hughes got to the show. A poll would be nice.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      I’ll do a poll as we get close to Spring Training. The idea of the “Watch” is to keep an eye on a guy that’s not to far off from the bigs. No one wants to see a Dellin Betances Watch on the sidebar for the next 4 years. Right now, the early in-house favorites are Alan Horne, Juan Miranda and Austin Jackson.

        Ill be shocked if Alan Horne isnt the runaway favorite.

          I disagree. If one of the reasons that Johan deal doesnt go through because Cashman wouldnt include AJax, all eyes are going to be on him in Trenton come 2008.

          • dan

            Everything considered, I’d go with Horne, even if he’s only on the watch for a few months. We can worry about the next watch when the time comes.

    I say Juan Miranda watch. Horne doesn’t have a clear spot on the big league roster, but 1st Base is a need position. Miranda is more likely to get a shot sooner than Horne.

    • steve (different one)

      i’m with Mike on Miranda.

      but i think we’ll see both Miranda and Horne in the Bronx at some point this year.

    Ajax for me, please. I want him to take Sickel’s B- and shove it up his fat arse. All I’m asking for is a .300/.400/.500 in Trenton :)

    I think Miranda for sure. lol@Rob
