Even though the Yankee payroll is currently at $195 million, Steinbrenner might not be finished with his shopping spree. Another major league source says the Yankees are moving closer to signing Greg Maddux, another client of super agent Scott Boras, putting the finishing touches on what The Boss could rightfully call the greatest Yankee team ever.
So would adding Maddux push the edge in starting pitching to the Yankees? I personnally think so, they wouldn't be as desperate if someone was to go down, and they'd have Lieber to rely on for long relief, and waiting in the wings should he have to start. Good move by the Big Stien, if he pulls it off. Let the this is terrible for Baseball chants begin Red Sox fans....
It is in there. Somwhere in the middle of the article.
It actually makes sense. I bet Boras said to the Yanks I can get Arod to play third if you give Maddux what he wants. I bet the Yanks wind up with all three Boras clients now. (Maddux, Arod, Travis Lee).
