Washburn-Yankees Trade Unlikely

Posted on: July 31, 2008 11:09 am

ESPN's Buster Olney says the Yankees and Mariners are unlikely to resolve their Jarrod Washburn standoff.  The Yankees just won't give up a good prospect at this point.  Should they?

docmilo, you make some great points. I was sick and tired of Bavasi getting his ass handed to him as well. I am just tired of Washburn being the inconsistant goat. If you want you can throw in Bedard and Batista also. 

Anyways, the Mariners are still my favorite team I just don't like the inconsistant baseball I have seen for the last 3 years.

Why should the M's be happy to unload his salary? Safeco is a cash cow, there are no other markets within 600 miles so TV revenues are pretty darn good. The M's have plenty of money. What the M's need to do is let other GM's know they aren't going to get fleeced anymore. Bavasi gave the M's a solid record of getting bent over in trades and that reputation needs to go away.

I'ld rather Washburn not go to the Yankees anyways. I don't want them anywhere near the playoffs.

As a Mariner fan, I could only hope that some team is that desperate to take Washburn off our hands. Come on Yankees show us the money. Jarrod Washburn has been inconsistant since he was signed by the Mariners. He is not worthy of his contract or a trade to a contender, but if someone wants him GREAT.

No way they should give up a good prospect for Washburn. Kennedy has been on fire, and at the end of the day Washburn is not much of an upgrade over Ponson.

Of course they shouldn't. The M's should be happy just to unload his salary. Seems like everything I've read has said the M's asking for way to much for their players. I guess they are content to keep paying bloated salaries and sucking at the same time.
