My point was more about the long history of the Yankee's using their money to attract A's players to their team/city than anything I could predict.

I don't know where he'll end up but I do know that the A's won't be able to afford him beyond this contract if he stays healthy and keeps improving.

The Giants could use a great left fielder and I'd like to see him stick around this area.

Sad to see Jeter go down
Yup -
Not a Yankee fan (at all), but Jeter is an all time A list player

Yankees made it interesting again in the 9th - can never really count them out

Another Strong Performance from Verlander & Coke in relief (former Yankee ) = the Tigers WIN 2 - 1 to go 3 Up

The Giants and the Cards are dealing with the possibility of a rain delay.

Cool. NBC lost the play by play audio.
Don't have to listen to Tim and Joe, just the sounds of the game.

Carpenter goes deep.

I just started reading this thread on this page, so I have no idea which player this is directed at. I do know however that the A's have about a 12-15 year track record of specifically NOT keeping players once their "market value" becomes too high. It is a brilliant plan in all honesty.

And yes, the Yankees have often been on the receiving end of this strategy, mostly because they have historically had the most money to spend. I did hear on ESPN Radio this morning that they are looking to cut payroll, starting with A-Rod if they can find someone to take his contract (which is still worth over 100 Million for a 36 year old player)..

Cespedas was the player I had mentioned.

And the only ways anyone would take A-Rod is if the Yankees pay a good chunk of his salary through the life of this contract OR if the other team has some close to equal (Multiple players?) dead weight to trade to the Yankees.

It's a HUGE sports night in the SF area with the Giant's and the 9ers both playing tonight.

That works.
And I hope you get the chance to try to beat both of our Bay Area teams.
