"We've attempted to give ourselves an equal chance to sustain what we have and at the same time fortify our pitching for the next four or five years," Williams said. "The plan is accelerated when you see mediocrity rewarded to the degree it's been rewarded this offseason. That's not a game we're going to play."

Umm.....writer of story, didn't Mussina "re-up" with the Yankees for two seasons?

You need to read it again. He said look at the Sheffield and Johnson trades, not the "re-upping" of Mussina and the Pettitte signing.

Well, it certainly isn't very clearly expressed, because two people already had the same misinterpretation...

No, it was not and I had to read it twice myself.

What is a former Oakland Raiders receiver doing writing MLB stories on Yahoo sports?

That's a solid article for yahoo. I thought the thing KW said to Brian Cashman was funny. I mean, doesn't he generally like any move Cashman makes?

See, this writer doesn't have any Chicago ties, so naturally he's not heartbroken that the Sox "dumped payroll" as a "slap in the face" to their loyal fan base as many of the local writers are. Therefore, he can view KW's moves fairly objectively.

Or, he can be an idiot, just like most of the local writers are.

excellent article, especially the line about the clown suit. I have no worries. KW is the man. As long as Ozzie, Jerry and KW stay hungry, we should stay competitive and win us a few more WS championships.

"When Williams traded Garcia, a workhorse who had thrown at least 200 innings in seven of eight seasons, it was assumed McCarthy, who had bided his time in the bullpen last season, would become the fifth starter."

At least he called the right pitcher the workhorse!
