Last Week: "Red Sox no longer in running for Texeira"

When in the free agency period have you seen the "have" teams in the middle of a pursuit of a premier free agent make public announcements about pulling out?

I don't recall ever seeing this.

I am going to date myself here...The first Cubs game I went to with a friend and paid for...
I paid $1.50 for a grandstand seat...bleacher seats could be had for the same price...
circa 1970. From the mid- 70's to @ 2001...I averaged 18 Cubs games and 6 Sox games
per year when I lived in Chicagoland. (There were years when I lived in Boston and Kansas City) but the fact is I've always been an avid baseball fan. Now I average 1-5
games per year...and it is because of the expense.

While MLB Owners, Players Union...and plain old greed come ...

News Flash...Yankees interested in Texeira...L.A. to get their 1rst round pick and a sandwich pick?

OK guys...the Yankees only get one first round pick...(assuming it wasn't traded away).
Who gets it?
If we are lucky...they won't ever be allowed a first round pick again!!!

I know how this works when a team signs just one TypeA free agent...but what happens
when they sign multiple free agents? Damn the Yankees.

Thanks guys....SuzyS
