Vizcaino to the Rox?

A-Rod's deal finalized
A thought on the Mitchell list

Tim at MLB Trade Rumors speculates that The Viz may have reached an agreement with the Rockies. If true, the Yanks would get a sandwich round draft pick as compensation, and depending on where some remaining free agents sign, this pick could be as high as #39 overall. At worst it will be #46. So basically it boils down to this: the Yanks traded Vizcaino to the Rockies for LaTroy Hawkins, a draft pick between #39 and 46 overall, and about $8-10M in salary relief. Sweet deal.

    That’s a great way of looking at it Mike. I feel better about LaTroy already! :-)

    Not bad when you look at it that way. Of course, we still have LaSuck pitching for us, but it could be worse.

      It could be worse. We could have Vizcaino pitching for us.

    Vizcaino wanted too much money. What I don’t understand is why the Yankees haven’t more aggressively tried to shop Kyle “I give up 2 runs an outing” Farnsworth?

  • Bo

    Why not get Farnsworth figured out then deal him for 10 cents on the dollar?

    We can get another sandwich pick (or higher) if we lose Hawkins next year!

    All middle relief is a crapshoot. You can’t predict guys from oneyear to the next. Just stick with the guys that can throw hard and throw strikes and see who gets hot.
