Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

It has to be noted that the Yankees had a chance to trade for Roy Oswalt last July and they pretty much passed. They were a playoff team who had old teammate Andy Pettitte as a selling point and his remaining contract is chicken feed to them but yet the Yankees did not pursue Oswalt with any enthusiasm. Do you think they are re-thinking that decisions lately?... Am I the only one waiting for the NASCAR headline that reads "Danica Patrick on Pole"? And it meaning what you hope it means?... “Alcohol may be man’s worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.” – Frank Sinatra... Speaking of Andy Pettitte - it has to be remembered that last time around the Yankees gave him the high hat with a take it or leave it $5.5 million contract offer. People keep talking about Carl Pavano as the best remaining free agent starter but it is actually Andy Pettitte. How big of an FU would it be if Pettitte decided to play again this year but just not for the Yankees? Can you imagine the ripping Hank Steinbrenner would get if Pettitte signed with say the Rangers?... If I worked in the front office of an independent minor league team - I would have made a 7-year contract offer to Cliff Lee just so I could send out press release saying I was mystery team...
