yep, had a feeling Pettite would go play near his hometown. The guy has 4 rings already. Brown better come through for the Yanks or they could be in trouble

Weaver, so you guys didn't lose much in the trade. Good luck trying to get a lot of starts out of Brown, though.

Nice trade for the Yankees. Brown is far better than Weaver IMO and with some run support I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see 20 W's out of him.

15 million dollars X 2 years for a 39 y/o pitcher with more injuries than Wilt has bedded women? You've got to be joking!

Great news for Sox fans, now we're even:

Headcases:
Yanks: +1 (Brown, soon to be +2 with Sheffield)
Sox: +1 (Manny)

EDIT: ohhh I hope they put Shef's locker next to Brown's again! :evil:

Brown will win 8 games and then get hurt again. You heard it here first.

Well if Nomar would have stepped up to the plate during the playoffs he wouldn't have to deal with this BS. This is the last year of his contract, look for him to be in a Giants uniform afterwards!

My guess is that now the Sox will have to trade Manny for A-Rod and get rid of Nomar as a result. That would bring it back down to 1.

No way, Petey is fine and couldn't be better in his time off. He just likes to headhunt Yankees, it's expected since they're rivals. Get over it already.

Until he's in another pressure situation and he comes completely unglued!

Although I like Nomar he really didn't do much in the playoffs. Also, his agent is a freaking TWIT. He advised Nomar to turn down a 4 yr/60million deal (God knows why), and a 13.5/14mil a year deal mid season last year. It's Nomar's own fault, he should have known his market value would drop since noone would take big money guys anymore (or sign them).

I'll take ARod over Nomar anyday, think of all the millions he'll bring in with his mug alone on NESN. And all the women who like him just b/c of his looks and he's single ;)

I wonder why the Yankees let Pettitte go. It isn't the money because they are going to spend more money and still have poorer pitching.

Hell Pettite has reached the pinnacle of his profession many times. I doubt that he minds playing for a team that might not be guaranteed a playoff berth just to do what he loves and to be close to his family (plus making huge money to boot)

You mean until his manager decides to leave him in for too long?

I agree. He took a lot less money to play for the Houston Astros. But the Yankees could have kept him if they really wanted to. He said in his interviews today that until a couple of weeks ago he had planned on ending his career with the Yankees. I think a call from GS would have made the difference.

Big deal, wo8uld the Sox fans have been satisfied with beating the Yanks only to lose in the WS to the Marlins?? Err.. check that, of course they would have:)

BTW, where is Pudge going to play next year? The Giants sure could use him!
