Can a return to the Yanks be imminent?

It's probably a long shot, but what's the chances of the Sox excercising the $1 million buyout and then resigning him for like $4 or $5 million? They could even make it incentive-laden. I can't imagine the market for him would be all that big, and I bet he'd come back to the Sox for a bit less than market value -- assuming the Yanks don't go for him.

I'd only want him back if he agreed to 2 conditions:

1. He'd take zero salary if he didn't win 15 games.

2. He has to have his mouth surgically sealed before the season so that he will be silent for all 162 games. When they make the playoffs, I'll tolerate his yappin.
