Former Yankee skipper Joe Torre is coming out with a book titled "The Yankee Years" with Sports Illustrated writer Tom Tom Verducci. In it, Torre reportedly takes shots at general manager Brian Cashman, George Steinbrenner and everyone's favorite lightning rod -- Alex Rodriguez.
After turning down what was a reportedly a guaranteed one-year deal worth $10M, ESPN.com is reporting Andy Pettitte and the Yanks are closing in on a deal worth less guaranteed money.
Did it make sense for the Yanks to sign Nady for $6.5M considering the plummeting contracts free agents are signing? Probably.
First, we'd like to extend a big thank you to Peter Abraham for allowing us to take part in his pinch-hitter series. Peter is what all beat writers should strive to be in the blogosphere, and he's done more than anyone to make the Yankee blog community what it is today. If this is your first time visiting In Mo We Trust, you may know Mike and I from our old stomping grounds, Green Pinstripes and Depressed Fan, respectively. In December, we joined forces to bring our readers more Yankee coverage and different voices. Check after the jump for a brief glimpse into what you can expect from us as the season nears.
With the legitimate induction of Rickey Henderson into the Hall of Fame and the Boston-media-influenced charity induction of Jim Rice, I got to thinking. Mike and I had a conversation the other day about which current Yankees could be headed to the hall five years after their retirement, after the jump we'll take a look.
If this quote from Carl Pavano doesn't get your blood boiling, there might be something wrong with you.
