    All this stuff is very small sample size but the Delarosa data is encouraging. And I'm looking to buy stock in Mookie at this point.

    The Yanks would only lose a 3rd round pick if I remember correctly but their luxury tax hit would be huge. Every once in a while Boras loses and this might be an instance. I still think Drew goes past the draft deadline and only signs then to keep from costing a pick. I'm beginning to think he may not even sign then. People remember how he couldn't hit a lick in the playoffs.

    Teams want Drew. It's all about the cost and draft pick/no draft pick. 

    When the value of a draft pick is now thought to be close to $7-10M, it's hard to see the logic in signing a player like Drew to a $7-10M one year deal.

    Once the draft passes, he will get a good deal, but it will be pro-rated to about 2/3rds of a season.

    I think I have been a bit higher on de la Rosa than many here, and I was glad they kept him as a starter.

    Boom, Moon and Jasko, you're all very good posters who offer much to this forum and these discussions. Perhaps the tension of our slow start is amping up your lack of patience with one another? Why can't we all just get along? It's not like any of you are trolling here or just trying to incite others. Let's keep the personal attacks and vitriol in John Farrell's discussions about replay where it belongs.

    Moon, I really liked this Stefan Welch, a big left-handed hitting corner infielder. Saw quite a bit of him in ST in both ML games and back field games and he's a legitimate power threat. Great swing, big pop.

    jasko has been taking the Mr. Know it all position for a long time while acting like myself and others act like we are know it alls.

    I appreciate the peace keeping effort, and I suppose that life is too short to spend time on this.

    Would be nice to have a surprise prospect jump the already packed top prospetc lists.

    lol. It is okay he has told me numerous times he is a mature successful family and business man... I am sure he won't indulge my antics. He will take the high road.

    Anyhow - we should have signed Kuroda

    [/QUOTE]

    Not many agreed with boom on signing Kuroda, even if there was a chance for him to come here. jasko is almost certainly right that Kuroda would never come here no matter what, but nobody knows with 100% certainty if he'd had taken $30M/1 to play here. of if we offered $22M/1, if the Yanks would even need to top it to get him- I'd guess probably not.

    The point is, this is a site where many posters come to speculate "what ifs". Some are obviously preposterous. Some are more dreams than reality. Some we never know, even if a player, agent or GM makes a statement that sounds definitive. There are countless examples of someone saying something then doing the opposite, so pretending to know something as fact based on personal statements may be true many or most of the time, but not all of the time.

    (I do think Kuroda would not sign with Boston, even for $30M/1, but boom's point about possibly driving up the cost to the Yanks is not outlandish.)

    His point also involved trading one of our starters to fill another need somewhere, which is also not outlandish. I disagree with boom on this one, but he didn't deserve the abuse he got for voicing that opinion.

    I seem to recall that he was talked of as having top-of-the-rotation potential when we first acquired him, but he seems to be forgotten often in our young pitching discussion. (I know he's not technically a prospect, but still.)
