    If you listen to my interview with Jim Baumbach from Tampa, you'll hear that even Moose thinks it won't be picked up--unless he "wins 25 games."

      I can be short about this. If he has a solid season in 2006, I say yes. Otherwise let him go.

        Yea I think it was a double in the 6th. The thing is Yes never shows this game on Yankees Classic.

          Not even if Moose goes 27-1 should that option be picked up.
          If Moose has the season I think he will, which is about 14-9, then I say renegotiate with him...maybe a 2 yr deal at $10M a pop. And that's being very generous.

I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

            I'd more go with a 1-yr deal then an team option for the same. If it's incentivized, like a low ERA, hi Ks, etc, I'm fine, but nothing like the number of games pitched.

              That's true.
              I'd do a 1yr with team option for another year.

              But I would only pay between $8-$10M no higher.
              If I was Cash I'd actually push hard for a $7M deal and make easy incentives for Moose such as Winning 13-15 Games, Pitching 150Inn and with Bonuses the deal could hit about $10M.

                I first read $7 million, but SEVENTEEN is way too much.
                And if Hughes is living up to the expectations, what do we need Moose for?

                If they negotiate about a lower amount, we can reconsider. But indeed $17 million is way too much.

That 1 hit was a line drive that barely went over a leaping Tino Martinez. Clemens was amazing that game.
                  I remember that too. He knocked A-Rod down two times in a row in the first inning.
