But I doubt it. Unless the Yanks decide to eat a bunch of his contract, then no. Because we're probably gonna try to pick up a good arm (Schmidt), and with A-Rod we'd have a ton of money tied up in Richie, Adrian, A-Rod, and the pitcher. Personally, I would like to move Sexson this offseason, and try to get a lefty power first-baseman. Beltre showing signs recently that he has maybe figured out Safeco, and since May he has been one of the best 3B in the game. I would love our 2007 lineup to be:
1. Ichiro CF/L
2. Chris Snelling RF/L
3. Adrian Beltre 3B/R
4. Lee Seung-Yeop 1B/L (really, really, really wishful thinking)
5. Raul Ibanez LF/L
6. Ben Broussard DH/L
7. Kenji Johjima C/R
8. Jose Lopez 2B/R
9. Yuniesky Betancourt SS/R
(I'm assuming that the yanks don't trade a-Rod and that we somehow get Lee)
(The lineup needs tweaking b/c of the L,L,R,L,L,L,R,R,R arrangement.)
ROTATION
1. Felix Hernandez RHP
2. Daisuke Matsuzaka RHP
3. Jason Schmidt RHP
4. Jarrod Washburn LHP
5. Jake Woods LHP
(We have a great Japanese culture for players, so hopefully we could swing Matsuzaka.)
(Although I would prefer to take a guy from the AL, see: Beckett, Burnett, Pavano, Johnson, etc. I would not mind Schmidt. Zito would be incredible, but with Boras he'll get way too much money. Maybe Mulder or Marquis, but decent NL pitchers don't translate well to the AL. At least Schmidt is a dominant NL guy.)
BULLPEN
Set-up guys
1. Rafael Soriano RHP
2. George Sherrill LHP
CL. J.J. Putz RHP
other relievers
Sean Green
Eric O'Flaherty
maybe Jon Huber and Joel Pinero
