    Yeah, I know, there's a Hot Stove thread.
    But this is the best pitcher in baseball and The Evil Empire:

    Tell them to start with Chamberlain or hang up the phone.

    Apparently Joba is off limits... Hughes might not be.

    Steinbrenner "didn't rule out" Kennedy, either.

    I gotta get some rest. I really thought the title said "Let the Santa Sweepstakes Begin" which would have been cool.

    As did I. And I thought it was weird that spnited started it.

    Tell the Yankees that the bidding starts at Joba, Hughes and a bat.

    Now hang up.

    Then hang up the phone. This is the best pitcher in baseball. He is only 28 years old. Hughes, Melky Cabrera and a prospect (a rumor I read) isn't that good of a deal. If they want the best pitcher in the game, a kid with 24 major league innings shouldn't be off limits.

    And Kennedy shouldn't be in the discussion, unless it is to deal him along with Hughes and Cabrera. Kennedy doesn't have the kind of elite-level stuff the other two do.

    Of course, if the Twinkies get too greedy Johan could play out his final year in Minnesota and walk away for nothing in return at this time next year.

    I'd think the Twins would ask for Kennedy, Cabrera, and Hughes. The Yanks will call Joba their only off-limit prospect. Just a hunch.
