    More to it - Lefty Anthony Banda is also a part of this deal. He's going to the Rays.

    If the Ray's want to reduce payroll, why don't they just trade all the starters for 100 k each and field the local high school team. I can't wait to read the local paper in the morning. And they want a new stadium? Let them MOVE! I can't wait for interleague play.
    I can see the Marlins come to the Trop and they draw less than 1000 people. They are both going to SUCK!

    Hey! You mean to tell me my Drury collection is worth more than $10 now?!?? Maybe I can sell them off without taking a loss!



    Regarding the actual trade, it hurts a little losing Drury because I know it's only a matter of time until he breaks out...not like superstar status but potential All-Star...however, I like Souza and playing in the desert heat at our bandbox he could end up hitting 35-40 bombs. He'll never hit for average and strike out often but he should provide above average defense, steal 15-20 bases, hit some jacks and hopefully the uptick in his OBP will remain or continue to improve. Souza was a late bloomer so I really don't know if his 4+ WAR 2017 season will become the norm or if it was just a fluke but I'm excited to find out. Pollock, Peralta & Souza sounds like an exciting outfield. Sure, I would have preferred J.D. but going with Souza saves us over $100 million so you know...
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> https://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    Wha??? Are you telling me you don't think Banda, Span, Arroyo, Palacios & Cron will draw in crowds from all over the world?? A couple of those guys were All-Stars (in the minors)!!!

    40k in the crowd...all day, every day...even when they don't play.

    These seem to have had a nice Yankees bump today. Not sure what you are into them for but could be time to list.

    Just checked out recent sales and prices have certainly gone up. At least double the price that I had originally paid for them.
