View Full Version : Yankee Fans Take on the Colon Deal

01-15-2003, 02:32 PM
As a Yankee fan, I think this trade works out for everyone. I'm happy to get rid of El Duque and make some progress in reducing the amount of starting pitchers and salary. Oshuna is a legit replacement for Mendoza, and best of all, the WhiteSox get Colon, and he doesn't go to Boston!! It seems like you guys didn't have to give up a ton to get him either. Just hope you can sign him next year.

And this was all made possible by Larry Luchino, who's comments probably provoked George to have Cashman do anything to prevent the Red Sox from getting Colon.

Any of you guys have any info on the young pitcher we got?

Anyway, see you in the playoffs, cause lord knows you have the pitching to get there now...

Delvis Lantigua, very young pitcher,(19 i believe) from the dominican republic, supposedly very highly regarded....this guy could be very good in a couple of years. type of guy people ask for in a trade....
