Agreed SF. I had no clue he was shut down this year with elbow pain that's why I asked. Tough timing from the sense that he misses all of the season rather than part of it but all in all might be best if he gets the full 13 months plus an entire off-season to recover.

IBM, CC is a huge (no pun intended) part of this off-season if he indeed opts out. I think (as do many others) that CC wants years more than dollars. With the albatross that is Alex's contract already on the books the Yankees just can't throw years at players and forget how bad things will be in years 5-7. I would not be shocked at all to see CC walk and Cash let him. I'm just not ready to say sign him at all costs, length be damned. It would make Cash have to be creative in the short term but long term signing CC for 6-8 more years is just bad planning. So if he does walk the market for Yu and Wilson most certainly change, probably for the worse. Thanks for the info on Gammons and Lackey. I asked above if this was sudden. I didn't remember hearing anything on him being injured but if he was then I apologize. Without knowing there were rumors early this year the timing just seemed too good to be true.

SF, if it was just the editorial or just the add I'd honestly have said nothing. I think it's funny when I am honest and complement the Sox I'm a phony. When I am honest and I don't like how a situation was handled by the Sox former GM I'm "tone deaf" to his importance. I guess that's fine afterall you're a Sox fan and I'm a Yankee fan, it's supposed to be this way. Additionally let's not forget regardless of his Bill Walsh comment, Theo is bailing on the Red Sox at what can be called their lowest point in many years. The cupboard certainly isn't bare and most likely the Sox will be right back in the hunt next season but he gets no points for bailing now. Tito gets a pass. He had a valid argument about changing the messenger etc...Theo has no everyday interaction with this team he's the GM. He bailed on the team he loves so much in a major time of need to go be the president of baseball operations (a promotion and raise) for another club. So again if he was just exhausted and couldn't do it anymore and left it would have seemed more genuine. That's not what he did though. So let's not go crazy with the St. Theo/tone deaf stuff. We don't need to agree but don't consistently discount my opinion.

Looks like NJ is going to be a Yankee as early as tomorrow.
