    This is some added experience and power back to the rotation the Yankees been missing since 2003...Red Sox/ Matzukaka prepare to be owned.

    yeah, i'm glad they got him back. he never should've left in the beginning, though. now if only they'd trade a-rod for soriano and call it even...

    on another note, the red sox, according to several reports, might not sign matsuzaka.

    It's a better deal than giving Lilly or Meche 4 year deals, but now the two highest paid pitchers in the AL are Randy Johnson and Andy Pettitte, and neither of them figure to put up a sub 4.50 ERA. He will be a good innings eater, and he will be better than Pavano, but I don't see how a pitcher who gave up 238 hits, 27 HR's, and had a 4.20 ERA in the NL Central is anything to be scared of.

    last time he was on the Yankees he was 21-8 in 2003 and 96'...I would be scared.Dont try to tell me he isn't one of the best lefties.And isn't he tied for the best post season record?And expect Clemens to come begging back to the Yankees to follow Andy.

    The sox will get Matsuzaka. I would bet my left leg nothing is announced until the 14th though.

    You won't be talking when he gets injured half way through the season.

    Kind of like Schilling?If Pettitte is hurt half way though the season then we can just use Roger Clemens and/or Igawa/Pavano. lol

    And what makes you think that will happen? With the exception of his last injury Pettite has had a remarkably healthy career for a pitcher.

    :blahblah: Yanks still won't win a championship. I know the astros suck, but what's that got to do with the yankees blowing all that money for nothing.

    This year the Yankees haven't jumped on loads of deals and have been trading for prospects while the Red Sox spent 50 mil just to talk to a guy they won't even sign and Lugo/drew aren't worth their prices.So go talk about other teams wasting money.the Astros were call by Pettitte's Agent and were told the Yankees Offer and they were able to Match it but they picked not to.

    LOL. Pettitte won't ever be that good again. Well, at least not good enough to be a threat. Yankees only signed him to get to Clemens. :boink:
