The blog has been a powder keg of sorts lately, with a lot of hard feelings and ill will being tossed around. In an effort to turn the ship around, let's shift our focus to the Hot Stove.
Rumors are swirling that the Red Sox are making a big push for Adrian Gonzalez. To me, the Lackey signing hurt bad (by hurt, I mean, hurt being a Yankee fan) for now the Sox have a very impressive starting 3. Adding Gonzalez will officially mark their return to offensive potentcy. Guys like Gonzalez, Martinez, Youklis, Cameron, and Pedroia? Impressive.
According to SI's Jon Heyman, the Mets "tweaked their offer to Jason Bay," offering five guaranteed years as an alternative. By adding Bay, the Mets are trying to keep up with the Phillies and Braves of the world. I've never seen a team that is so talented achieve so little.
Meanwhile, Johnny Damon has stated, ""I am going to start looking around. Teams are getting better and there are teams interested. I can’t wait forever and I am sure [the Yankees] are trying to figure things out. I have to be ready." So, if Damon moves on, and Bay and Holliday land elsewhere, where do the Yankees turn?
