Yeh but didn't the Dodgers already just pay 50 million dollars or something for that Cuban Second Baseman? They are said to have absolutely no interest in Cano and haven't even tried to sign him.
I think the best way to describe the Dodgers is to remember how many times the Yankees have stated their lack of, or no interest in a player over the years before leaping on them like a Cheetah. These are games big market teams and high priced agents like Boras play. I'm not saying Cano doesn't stay in NY, or Hanley in LA after next season buts its fun to watch the rich push the price up on eachother in hopes one gets strapped financially for years to come.
I expect this off season for the Yankees to be similar to when they swept up Tex, Burnett and CC. They did win a WC with them but have been burned ever since. I want the Sox to make one big trade (like Kemp or Braun) that could impact the middle of their lineup like the Manny/Papi days but other than that we look pretty good if we can sign Hart or Nap.
I know instinctively I am supposed to say no to Kemp.
And I am quite certain about this.
But I am having trouble getting the image of Kemp/JBJ/Vic in the OF, out of my head.
And with the LAD still looking for an SP and RP, I keep wondering if they'd be interested in Dempster as part of the Kemp contribution, as well as Morales.
Peavy or Lackey, maybe. Dempster? Unlikely.
The next two weeks should be at the very least fun to watch.
... The Yanks still need Cano badlly and SP
... The Dodgers need to dump an OF salary and improve SP plus
... The Sox need a solid OF bat, preferably with more power and to sign a 1B
Should make things fun to watch!
