    Just about anything, yes… though then again, because of what they can do with free agents and players, they can’t always get the players they want in trades, because they don’t have the system depth to pull off deals – take Dan Haren and Cliff Lee for example, who they managed to miss out on getting, though they were considered the frontrunners at first.

    Hey, so do you find that your email trails sending out links help you? I haven’t been doing that, but I know that you and Chris (Rev) do, and wondered if that was useful at all….

    We all know that whatever the Yankees want they do tend to get and much of the time it’s always been agent Scott Boras there to assist or act as the middle man when it involves a client of his . Sabathia , Teixeira, A-Rod and a slew of others over the years. So what’s about to change once their (Harper & Strasburg ) arbitration clock stops ticking ?

    You could be right TOP, that the Yanks or others will come calling… though I do think with these kind of cornerstones, the Nats could make some good money and may be able to hang on to some of their young talent down the road. Look at teams like the Twins who have found ways to keep some of their stars and expand payroll.

    By the way, any time my friend! Whenever I do those posts, I will always find something of yours to promote… always happy to help friends like you and Rev out.

    I did, too… I was shocked it was only around 10 mil… and imagine if that kid pans out? The cornerstones they could have with Harper and Strasburg? Ridiculous potential right there…

    I totally expected the numbers that Harper ended up signing for to be significantly higher, especially considering who’s representing him.

    It was nice to see them not hold that franchise hostage.
