    Anyone but the Red Sox is good. I'm not sure I would have liked him on the Yankees because I'm not crazy about having a different set of rules for one guy (show up when you want; only pitch at home, take the Spring off, etc...).

    I'll kill someone if we do that. Hughes will be better than the overated Dontrelle Willis.

    Willis is young and a proven MLB winner. His last few starts have been much better. Hughes, as good as he's rated, is a question mark. I hate to give up the farm, but it's pretty much desperaton point for this season - Yanks don't add a 1 or 2 starter, they aren't a contender.

    They're going to want Cano or Wang if not Hughes. I'm less willing to give up either one of them...

    our staff definitely needs to get younger. our 1 and 2 starters are in their 40s and upper 30s respectively.

    i wouldn't give up cano or wang. wang is the real deal. he keeps the ball down, and when you do that, you're going to have success in the majors. and cano is also a proven player in this league. hughes i could part with if it means dontrelle. this guy is young, energetic, left-handed, and would have a great presence in the clubhouse. hughes is a ?

    whoever thinks willis is a good pitcher check the facts

    hes a number three starter in the al...he plays in a football stadium in florida......look at his numbers before last season....if he came to the yanks he would have a 4.30 era at best and would get beat down

    they just said on pti that the report was premature. i guess we'll have to wait for the truth to come out, but he probably has signed with the astros.

    He should stay in the NL where he has to bat.

    It's a good thing some of you Yankee fans are not the GM of the Yankees, but then again could you do worse than Brian Cashman?

    Yeah - like Contreras, Vazquez, Pavano, Weaver, and all the other guys that came here and choked are all Cashman's fault.

    As I've said a million times, all these guys were heavily sought after free agents that the Yanks signed, who subsequently choked in NY. Then they went elsewhere and played well again. How can you predict that?

    Cashman is not a genius, but he's still an above average GM.

    that's a lot of wild speculation on your part. Sure his ERA will take a hit in the AL, but he is still the best available starter on the market. That's why we're talking about him.
