Additional Trade Thought

In thinking about whether the Pudge trade was a good one for the Yanks, consider the following-

It's the 9th inning and the Yanks are playing the Tigers in the ALCS. Down 1 at home, we need a run to tie. Tell me you're not begging Leyland to bring in Farnsworth!

Also, it's always nice when a player wants to come to NY. From Bill Madden - 

...Rodriguez, who is a free agent after the season, asked for a meeting with Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski at the team hotel in Cleveland, at which he was the one who suggested a trade to the Yankees.

"They need a catcher and I want to catch every day," Rodriguez reportedly told Dombrowski. "Why don't you see if you can work something out?"

According to Boris, Pudge has always wanted to be a Yankee. Whether I believe him, I don't know, but at least he's saying the right things.
