Yankees acquire another All Star

And they do it again. The Yankees add another all-star Javy Vasquez today, all while not hurting their 2010 major league team all that much. They did give up a potential power arm in Vizcaino (but he's 19 years old, a lot of things can go wrong between now and 3-4 years when he would be ready to help a major league team).

And they also put themselves back in the market for a corner outfielder (Damon), so it decreases the Mets leverage slightly with Bay until the Yankees fill that "supposed void" with another all-star. It will be interesting to see if the Yankees do have a budget and don't bid on Damon, Bay or Matt Halladay.

As far as the hot and heavy rumors of RA Dickey, please see my comment under the Jason Marquis posting.

  1. Now we have a rumor of Phillips and Arroyo for Pelfrey? Oh wait, we have RA Dickey! The Mets better have a plan...right now, there is nothing under the Mets Christmas tree to open...leave it to the Mets to make everything interesting...

    anybody else think Bay and Molina aren't coming? Offers made 3 weeks ago and nothing? And Bay's agent has re-opened talks with Boston. Sounds to me like somebody doesn't want to be a Met...

    Mets need to find a way to battle...
