Also if the Yanks sign Sabbathia or Yu Darvish.

    Yu Darvish--did a little research on him and there is a high possibility that he could be coming to the MLB this offseason on the condition that whatever team he signs for allows him to play for his Japan in the WBC in 2009...There were rumors about this past offseason but he wanted to play in the Olympics...the Nippon Ham Fighters said that they would listen to any MLB offers for him

    Giambi- He's gone, sure he hits for a lot of power but he's getting older and his average hasn't been very high the past few years.
    Abreu- He's a valuable part of the NYY roster. The man still has a helluva an arm and is still a competent defender in the field. He still hits for average and some power and he continues to work th count. He'll stay 2-3 years
    Pettite-depends on Kennedy/Hughes
    Moose- see Pettite
    Pavano- HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
    Farnsworth- depends on how he fares in the set-up role with Joba in the rotation.
    Hawkins- see Pavano
    Morgan Ensberg- i never understood why they needed him in the first place.
    Betemit- He's a good utility man with some pop. I say he stays
    Bruney- He's been a consistent pitcher out of the 'pen for NYY. He'll stick around

    Trot was in Cleveland last year, I don't know where he's at now.

    Trot Nixon is playing for Arizona's AAA team.

    I just want to put it out there now as June 1st approaches and we start looking and the Trade Season and we take some peaks ahead at the upcoming free agency (without taking our eye off of this season) i just wanted to make a list of Yankees who contracts are coming off the books and how much they are worth:
    -Name- UFA, Arbitration, or Option (Buyout Amount)- 2008 Salary

    -Jason Giambi- Team Option ($5 Million)- $16 Million
    -Bobby Abreu- UFA- $16 Million
    -Andy Pettitte- UFA- $16 Million
    -Mike Mussina- UFA- $11 Million
    -Carl Pavano- Team Option ($1.95 Million)- $11 Million
    -Kyle Fransworth- UFA- $5.5 Million
    -LaTroy Hawkins- UFA- $3.75 Million
    -Morgan Ensberg-UFA- $1.75 Million
    -Wilson Betemit- Arbitration- $1.165 Million
    -Brian Bruney- Arbitration- .725 Million

    If there are any errors or additons let me know so i can update it
    BTW...

    C. Wang: $4M (expect this number to go up via Arbitration or a contract)
    Robinson Cano: $3M (This number jumps to $6M next season)

    But the Yanks should clear enough money to bring in a Texiera, but I'm hoping it's not some crazy $150M type of deal.

    According to Wikipedia:

    He is currently working to rejoin the Boston Red Sox as a minor league manager or scout.

    Damon's contract was for '06, '07, '08, and '09. Right now you're in the third year of a 4-yr deal.

    Isn't Johnny contract up? It was 4 years and isn't this his fourth year (seems like 5)? I really like Bobby (with Action Jackson has 4th). Good time to retool with some young arms.

    Watching ESPN - where does Don Cherry (always liked him with his Dog Blue) find those clothes? It's unreal in HD. Classic.

    Don't be surprised if the Yanks re-up Bobby Abreu for maybe 2 years plus an option.

    I had hoped Jackson would be ready to earn a Sept. call up and possibly get the job next season, but he probably needs more seasoning.

    Brian Bruney most likely will be back.

    I think the Yankees will do anything to get Teixeira. They really need a good first baseman, and Teixeira hits 30 HR's and 100 RBI's every year. It's the most obvious signing in years. The Mets are going to be going after him hard too. How high do you think the Yankees will go? I'm guessing 5-6 years for $18-$20 million per year and maybe as high as $22.

    ...

    I for one and very excited about this upcoming offseason. With so much money getting cut from the payroll, it will be nice to see the Yankees go hard after Texeira.

    hmmmmm I wounder if they are going to pick up the option on Pavano? bye bye Carl finally!

    I think they will resign Bobby, maybe Bruney. Have to see if Moose & Andy decide to retire or not.

    But the rest........ There goes some dead weight and some wasted money!
