I know the Sox could have done without Julio Lugo. I'm still waiting for JD to be JD.

Good thing you aren't holding your breath while your waiting- you'd be dead.

They have done without Pavano for most of the year and if you don't think giambi being out has really hurt this team you're dreaming.

If you're talking about contracts added last off season:

Mets ---- right now you'd have to say Alou...........any healthy LF would be better though I will be extremely happy if he's in our post season line-up..... if we make it.

Yanks---- Pettitte I guess is the only big contract they took on unless you wanna count Clemens who was signed to the "Roger plan" in season. Since Pavano held true to form you really can't kill the Pettitte signing and other than just recently, he has been very good.

SOX----JD was a huge contract but I still say he will hit. Who they could have signed instead?....Jose Guillen.

I don't like Giambi, never did. he's always hurt and can't play the field. so what good is he?

Always hurt? What about last year when he was the 2nd best hitter on the team besides jeter and played 140 games? The yankees REALLY miss that production.

He has put up elite production, I agree there, but I won't use his injury as a reason for our lack of success..

You can put his 02,03,06 and 05 season's against any player in baseball.

Even if you hate him it's clear the yankees miss his bat in the middle of the lineup.

They have absolutely sucked as a whole (hitting wise) when they have gotten good pitching. Giambi would not have made a difference.

So replacing Miguel "Useless" Cairo in the lineup with Giambi of 06 wouldn't have made a difference?

Jason Giambi!!!!!

!!!!!

His best performance this year was his cameo in "The Bronx is Burning."

I'm neutral here:

Yanks- Pavano

Mets- Beltran

Sorry..but the Mets overpaid for a player that had 10 HR's in a postseason. He is not a very productive player for the salary he makes...especially his spot in the line up.

Let me get this right:

Giambi has been elite and Abreau has put up HOF numbers?

He hit 41 HR's last year and is struggling with a Quad injury this year. He is also arguably the best post season hitter in NY. Everyone is overpaid nowadays.

I applaud your loyalty to those blokes but Giambi is "hurt," once again, and Abreu is so bad that he is attempting to bunt every other game just to get on base.

LOL @ loyalty. This is about cold hard numbers, not loyalty. And I said Abreu had 9 hall of fame quality years, obviously this year isn't on that list.

I will go out on a limb and say that 99% of the people who post in this forum will back me up when I say that you talk up the Yankees and the prospects in the minors over any Red Sox or any other player in MLB.

Okajima: He doesn't deserve to make the All-Star Team.

Ellsbury: Overrated.

Lowell: He sucks in the 2nd half.

Varitek: Not one of the best catchers in the game.

I could go on and on.

I give my honest opinion of every player no matter what team they play for.

Yanks- Johnny Damon ,Carl Pavano ,Jaret Wirght

Mets - Delgado , Pedro Martinez

Pedro filled his purpose of giving Minaya's Mets credibility as a team where FAs could go. Fans funneled back into Shea and it opened the Latino market for the Mets, which there are more Latinos at Shea. If he never pitches again, it doesn't matter, that signing created this Mets team.

Pirates: Tony Armas. UGH.

I bet you guys are all glad none of your teams payed up to sign Barry Zito.

That was the best decision Omar made this offseason. I am very pleased the Mets didnt sign him. He would have been a bigger bust in NY.
