There's nothing wrong with being a hired gun. And no one is pretending otherwise. Though Schilling as you would expect mouthed some nonsense about history and tradition and blah, blah, blah. Hey, what ever. It's not like the Yanks haven't done the same thing on any number of occasions.
That's a formidable Sawx rotation-if everyone stays healthy.
KC is willing to trade Beltran, but the Yanks would like to give up Soriano, who's eligible for arbitration, which would expand his salary out beyond what KC would like to pay. No deal there.
