    I&#39;m merely highlighting the fact that I see that price as being very reasonable.

    Scot, admit it ... it feels good when your team is shelling out the bukoo bucks for elite talent?

    Now you&#39;re getting a taste of how the Yankees live ... you hated it when it was just us, but it sure tastes sweet now, doesn&#39;t it?

    How is 3 years for 21M "bukoo bucks"?? That is what Urbina wanted. I take Foulke over Urbina.

    Only because he&#39;s younger. Otherwise, give me Urbina any time. Foulke is the master of the "heart-attack" save. Comes in with a 3 run lead, gives up 2 runs and there are men on, with 2 outs. Then he finally gets the 3rd out, saving a 3 run lead by only allowing 2 runs in.

    He was much better this past season, but until 2003, this was his M.O.

    Too bad they got worked by a team with 1/4 of the salary in the World Series.

    But they got to the Series. That&#39;s something they have done with regularity the past 80+ seasons. Can&#39;t say the same for that team from Boston, can we???
