Robert, you 47 year fairy, You have the nerve to post on the Santa helpers forum as Yankeefan4ever, and complain about pics? Are you really a man?? Just because some dumb church has brainwashed you into all these Jesus lies? By the way, tell your church that Jesus mom was really a hooker and was embarrassed she had sex with a guy while not married. So the church had to cover this up and say it was the immaculate conception. What a joke and a whore. Her name was Mary I believe. They foolishly brainwashed you into thinking Jesus was some son of some god. What a croc and so are you
oh boy

<quoted text>Did they get Lastings Milledge for him? I saw yanks dumped Andy Phillips too. Offering Melky and Hughes for Santana. Looks like they aren't as confident in their "home grown" talent as the fans are. I hope Nats are dumb enough to throw young gun clippard against the Mets. He had his 15 minutes of glory. At least yanks still have Desalvo
They didn't get Milledge for Clippard. I also saw the Yanks dumped Phillips.

The reason I’m willing to play devil’s advocate is because all those great pitchers who have been in Santana’s position prior to Santana none of them has delivered as they should have and only one has earned a WS title and that was Kevin Brown and he won prior to signing that huge contract with the Dodgers (huge at that time) and the others Zito and Hampton just like Brown turned out to be huge disappointments.
Besides, if Santana doesn’t pan out for the sux they would have had surrendered some top prospects and players and inflated their already huge payroll (huge by their standards) and they will be without Manny for the 2009 season and without those prospects as well (great things happen to those who wait).
Regarding Brown & Co. it’s worth noting the media and the “experts” they all agreed at that time those hurlers deserved the money they got and they declared those teams had walked away with what everybody thought was a sure ace and winner.
History doesn’t back up those who want Santana at all costs. A pitching star is more delicate than a Stradivarius (and far more expensive too) and needs to be in fine shape every game every year to be worth the investment. It that goes even by a small margin you no longer get what you paid for and a team like the Yankees is known for making matters worse by trying to adjust on the fly and overspend on top of any initial investment made however huge.
So know what you’re getting into (a $25+ Mil per year pitcher who already missed some games because of an arm problem) and be ready to face the consequences of your actions and have a plan B ready well ahead of time.
Once you have done your due diligence then go with your gut feeling and live with that decision for richer or poorer. A wrong decision in this case will cost some people their jobs without fail; the media will make sure of that.
thanks
