I'll be back with more about Tex's new-Yankee value later on. For now here's a list of links with the story rundown:
Again, more on this later... I just wanted to get the news out as quickly as I could.
"And the Yankees, who had $88 million come off the books after a very discouraging 2008 season, still have money to chase Derek Lowe, Ben Sheets, Andy Pettitte and possibly Mark Teixeira or Manny Ramirez."Now, before getting to the fantasy impact of A.J. Burnett's arrival, I have to weigh in and say that I cannot see the Yankees chasing Derek Lowe or Mark Teixeira of all the names listed above. Its been made apparent that the 5th spot in the Yankees rotation belongs to Pettitte, if he wants it. If not, enter Ben Sheets. It's about as simple as that.
