Carl Pavano decided Saturday he wanted to pitch for the Yankees, and his agent and New York closed in on a four-year contract worth about $39 million.

The Yankees acquiring both Pavano and Wright may make them willing to fill their 1b hole (assuming Giambi is not in their plans) by trading us Vasquez and some cash for Paulie.

Or, now that they've added two pitchers, they may no longer be interested in RJ. If RJ knows the Yankees are no longer a possibility for him, he may decide the White Sox aren't such a bad team to play for after all.

Mike Mussina
Kevin Brown
Javier Vazquez
Carl Pavano
Orlando Hernandez (will most likely be re-signed)
Jaret Wright

So they will have 6 starters. I think the Konerko for Vazquez trade is a good possibility. The Yankees still need a first baseman.

The Sox covet Vazquez, who struggled in the second half of the season and was not in the postseason rotation. It's believed the Sox will offer Paul Konerko in a deal only if Johnson ends up on the South Side. If they are a third party with Johnson landing in the Bronx, Carlos Lee could be the Sox's contribution with Vazquez coming to Chicago
So looks like we're only getting rid of PK is we get Randy Johnson in return. Well, at least according to the Trib...

If we trade Lee to net us Vazquez, we can still have the following lineup...

2B Willie Harris
CF Aaron Rowand
1B Paul Konerko
RF Jermaine Dye
LF Carl Everett
DH Ross Gload (until Frank is healthy)
SS Juan Uribe
3B Joe Crede
C Ben Davis

Gload could even play some 1B with Konerko DH'ing. The thought of Everett in LF is kind of scary but some people weren't too high on Lee's defense there anyways, although he has gotten alot better recently.
