And again here is me playing my one string banjo...teams based in NYC should not have to take a chance on the reigning Cy Young winner. But i guess teams based in NYC should not let the reigning batting champ leave town without making him an offer, either.
you are talking out of your ass, any kind of an injury is not a black or white thing...it could have been severe or it could have been nothing...and by all accounts it was nothing to worry about (it was in 2010, and did not require surgery).
