"...the Cliff Lee of this year..."

HoF backhanded compliment right there

Somewhere between Lee and Zito...

yes but, more importantly according to the national media, have the Marlins expressed any feigned interest?

[2] ... is leeto.

i am torn on this guy. lefty, keeps the ball in the park, and thrived in really tough home ballpark. but i hate pitchers who walk everybody.

the truth is that the rotation has 5 spots, and 4 of them contain question marks and/or vacancies. and all of my arguments about getting lee last year (don't care about the $, don't worry about clogging up a spot as they yanks have only once or twice in the last several decades employed 5 good starters at the same time, and no other better options) hold here as well.

this pitcher isn't as good as last year, but the state of the rotation is even worse considering hughes is less reliable than ever and aj confirmed he is guaranteed suck. between wilson and darvish, it's lefty vs shiny new thing. i can't say with any certainty which guy would be better.

From Lohud, apparently there are teams interested in A.J. Swapping the AJ spot for C.J. would make me very happy.

There are a few reasons not to get Wilson, and they're called years, but I don't care.
Get the lefty, Cashman.

I know I'm the lone female voice here, but am I right in assessing that CJ is a stud?

Yu Darvish has the cooler name.

Darson, Wilvish or C Yu.

7) He's handsome, yeah. And apparently loves food, too.

[7] Darvish is quite the beefcake here. Posed in a scandalous "nude" photo spread once awhile back.

[9]Yes, Yu is a pretty boy with refined features and a baby face. I hear he's a character. He's awfully expensive like a cherry red Ferrari.

[8]Liking food, as in a gourmand or a potential fatty?
