    Dunn definitely fits better in the Yanks lineup, like you mentioned earlier in the week about all the K's between he and Pena. It would be another big bat but a lot of K's. Yanks can absorb that more than the Rays.

    Look at Damon and Matsui's numbers this year. Dunn would launch so many into the short porch.

    I am starting to convince myself the Yanks are going to end up with one of these two. Berkman is probably a better fit because of the less prospects but I think Nova would be pretty attractive to the Nats, he is big league ready. I can also see the Yanks picking up Qualls, who is much much better than his numbers. He should cost almost nothing.

    should be an interesting 24 hours.

    I'm really looking to see what happens if dunn or berkman gets moved. really puts the pressure on the team that fails to make a deal.

    don't rays and yanks play this weekend?

    Yes they do. This was mentioned in the Yanks thread but how horrible would it be if Arod's 600th was a catwalk shot in that joke of a stadium

    Huge series.

    And as I say that, a Berkman deal is almost done.

    Jeter
    Swish
    Tex
    Arod
    Cano
    Berkman
    Posada
    Granderson
    Gardner

    Not fucking bad if I say so myself.

    Berkmans numbers since June 1 and especially July 1 are much much better than on the whole season

    can't wait for Arod to hit 600 so I don't have to hear about it anymore. as a non-yankee fan it has to be the least interesting milestone of all time (since he cheated).

    but whatever, you know how I feel about Arod

    I hear you. The cheating thing is so overblown to me but that is a whole different conversation.

    Yeah, man. That is solid. Granderson is on fire and would be hitting 8th and Gardner who is around .300 batting 9th. Tough tough lineup.

    I don't understand why cano isn't hitting 3rd, but that's just nit picking

    Feinsand says it is about to happen and no big prospects will be given up. I like it.

    This shit better not blow up.

    Some dude says Berkman is thinking about 4 destinations so who knows, all I know if another trade blows up my head will too.
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 28,720
    Yeah, Cano can hit either. I think they gave him the opportunity to hit 5th this year and it was a lot to ask of him after his RISP numbers last year. He has been more than comfortable and they probably dont want to fuck with it. Plus I am sure with Tex's struggles, they wanted him in front of Arod. I like it the way it is.

    Cliff, didn't you say you hit PSU football games?

    My wife and her friends plan a trip every year. Just got confirmation that we are going 10/30 for the michigan game...night game too. pretty fired up, last year they booked indiana.

    Of course if the phils are playing a home WS game, I will be backing out of this trip at the last minute...and I'll probably be single come Halloween

    You sound as if you love your wife, but would rather have her as your girlfriend, no?

    I do hit a lot of PSU fooball games, at least 1 a year, usually more. That is going to be an awesome time. I went to the Ohio State night game a few years back when they won. One of the best sporting events I have been to.

    That is a great game to go too and I would definitely be there but I think I am going to be in Barecelona that week. Which also sucks because if the Yanks are in the World Series i will be staying up all night to watch the games. Oh well, I will figure it out. Shitty timing but only time this trip can happen.

    Sounds like some weird 10 and 5 thing as to why it wont be announced until tomorrow but it is agreed upon and he has waived his no trade clause.

    Sounds like the Yanks will be paying it all and sending a non-prospect minor leaguer. Hell of a deal.

    The Nationals are frustrated in their attempts to get equal value for Adam Dunn, and conversely, rival teams are saying that the asking price for Dunn is enormous. This is why the Yankees turned away from the Dunn talks and snagged the player they perceive to be the second-best DH type on the market, Lance Berkman -- figuring the Rays might have turned to Berkman if they had ultimately lost out on Dunn. It's like a game of musical chairs. - Buster Olney
