i heard the payroll is now 190 million and they have 6 of the 12 biggest contracts in baseball. ridiculous.
Yea, I agree with ya that I don't think it is that great of a trade for them, but it is the idea of them just being able to get the best player in baseball just like that. As far as the trade, I agree. I thought that Aaron Boone was a pretty good third baseman for them. I didn't think he needed replacing. Soriano is very young as you said and could get 40/40 any year. Didn't he have like 39/42 two years ago?
