No Shoulder Surgery for Sheffield / Posada on Block?

I wonder if the Yankee fans will finally shut up about how heroic it was for Sheffield to play with a bum shoulder. Obviously, if he doesn't need surgery, it wasn't as bad as they made it out to be. So he had shoulder pain? What major leaguer plays without pain? That's what happens! That's why they get paid the big bucks!

And what's all this stupidity I hear about the Yankees trading Posada to the Diamond Backs for Randy Johnson? Why on earth would Arizona do it? Posada is heading downhill, he makes way too much money, and a team that lost 111 games doesn't need a veteran catcher - they need prospects, and they need pitching. The Junkees' farm system is in shambles, and other teams that want Johnson have much more to offer. I guess when you buy every player you want, you get used to it as a way of life. So the spoiled Yankee fans think everything is coming to them, but if they think Arizona is so dumb that they'll take an aging catcher in return for the best pitcher in baseball, they're in for a rude awakening.

I think the Yanks are putting Posada on the block to try and make a run for Varitek. Even if the Yanks can't trade Posada, George would love to scare the Red Sox fans by driving up the price on Varitek. But Varitek is rightfully Boston's top priority. Only thing that scares me is that only the Yankees will be willing to give Varitek, a catcher over 30, a 5-year deal.

But Varitek, unlike Pedro, probably prefers Boston to NY. And Posada is untradeable, unless the Yanks eat tons of salary. The guy is not worth what he's getting paid for. With the emergence of Victor Martinez and others, Posada's days as one of the AL's elite catchers are numbered.

hey guys-

I just finished shooting a film about Sox winning the World Series and I thought you'd be interested in it. It's a comedy about two life-long Red Sox fans who miraculously land tickets to the World Series. Completely professional too, we shot in High Definition. We used all local guys and even used a Dunkin Donuts as a set.

Here's our website: http://www.1918film.com/

If you have any questions I'd love to answer them.

Go Sox.

Um, I have a question. Why would you think anyone outside of New England cares? Good luck in finding a distributor. LMFAO

I love the above post. You're on a Red Sox blog, idiot. I saw that film at the Providence Film Fest, and it was a hit. Good luck winning the World Series this year with your pitching staff. LMFAO at you and your highest payroll in baseball.
