I don't think Giambi is a fine replacement at all.

The Yankees paid WAYYYY too much for him. Got even less out of it in the postseason and lost a clubhouse leader, standup guy and proven playoff performer to boot. Way to reward the guy who worked hard for you and kept the series going last year with what I think will be my most memorable HR ever.

It's tough being a Yankee fan in the buying spree times. The players I like have always... and will always be the talent they nurture (who then does deserve their money) Jeter, Williams, Soriano and the journeyman guys like Paulie and Tino. That's who keeps me around, not Jason freakin' Giambi.

At this point it'd be a pretty even deal. Elias isn't really producing that much and neither is Tanguay. Skoola and Danton are pretty much throw ins. Hinote adds a little something to the Devils but not much.

I can assure you that the Avs would kick everyone avs if this deal went down.

It's like akin to getting Drury back.

I don't see the Devils getting anything out of this (unless the ONLY objective is salary dump), and that's why I think it's either what the Avs WANT out of the deal or just a complete (N)Đ„verson fabrication. History leans toward the latter.

I was the regular writer in Port Charlotte when many of the Rangers crop came through there.
Pudge was sooooo young, then. It's so bizarre to hear stuff about him now. Going to Japan seems so wrong. It's amazing that no one wants to take the chance on him and that he's even considering that.

And didn't this come after a report in one of the legit papers saying that the Devs absolutely don't want Hinote?

Arnott will get some love... maybe not much.

I think he'll get a good reception.

The fans on hand at the game are a lot more lenient than we tend to be here. Although that's not exactly right, cause I too would applaud his name in an announcement -- no matter what I think of the end of his tenure with us. But I'm generally like that for past Devils (there are only a handful that I would not applaud and would actually boo.)
