        Probably in New Jersey.

          • Ken Rosenthal on Winter Meetings

            A-Rod will be traded. The Red Sox already have improved significantly by adding Curt Schilling as a co-ace. A trade for Alex Rodriguez would make him their best player since Ted Williams, and the team would reap an addition-by-subtraction benefit with the departures of clueless slugger Manny Ramirez and clubhouse downer Nomar Garciaparra.

            I've got a dollar bet with a general manager that a Rodriguez trade will happen, though I may need to accept a deferred payment because the G.M. is with a low-revenue club. Rodriguez even could polish his image by restructuring his $252 million contract to ease the Red Sox's burden, though Mike Hampton didn't sacrifice a cent when he escaped Colorado.

            The Rangers want payroll relief. The Red Sox want Ramirez relief. And Rodriguez wants to win. The Sox will need to cut corners in other areas if they add Rodriguez and take back a salary for Garciaparra. Given their needs for a closer and second baseman, they figure to be active even if the trade collapses.


            The Yankees' payroll will exceed $200 million. Is there any doubt? The bullpen alone figures to be a $25 million ensemble. And once the Yankees are finished re-signing Andy Pettitte and/or trading for the Dodgers' Kevin Brown, owner George Steinbrenner will run out of zeroes on his calculator.

            The Marlins' upset of the Yankees in the World Series prompted the latest Steinbrenner rampage, and the Red Sox's acquisition of Schilling ensured that it would reach epic proportions. Free-agent relievers Tom Gordon and Paul Quantrill were coveted by several clubs. The Yankees scooped them up like appetizers.

            Look at the bright side: The Yankees' penalty for exceeding the luxury-tax threshold next season might be higher than the Brewers' payroll!

              They were playing the Lions. They could have brought Stan Humphries out of retirement,give him a concussion,and they would still beat the Lions.

              Meanwhile, most of us in Chicago are willing to volunteer to pack Dick Jauron's bags and send him on a one way trip out of town after another humiliating loss to the Pack.

                please give me a break with your boy pete. he hasn't won jack! my bad, he did win the smack down event with zim, it almost looked like a chief J strong-bow move. i don't think those other four guys were on a pitch count. last list just shows how far of a reach you have to go to give this guy any credibility.

                        • It's brainless . . .

                          I can't believe Yankees were so careless with Pettitte. How can they just let a 21 game winner slip out of thier hands and land in Houston?
