    Getting a bag of balls for Sheffield would have been more than even.

    John Wetteland was hospitalized today, after apparent suicidal behavior.
    The Denton County Sheriff's office says they took a call from the Argyle/Bartonville area around 12:30 Thursday on a possibly suicidal person.

    When officers arrived to the home, a man later identified as Wetteland came out with his hands in the air, saying he "needed help."
    Best wishes to him.

    But I thought Jeff Karstens was great, and Cashman was an idiot for letting him get away!

    Anyone who knocks that trade is the King of All Hindsight. That was a fantastic move by Cash, who picked up Sheffield's option explicitly to trade him. He judged the market right in that there was at least one suitor willing to give up prime prospects to acquire/extend a slugging RH bat. As pitching prospects go, Sanchez was a gem and Whelan was a project with a tremendous arm. Sanchez has had injury problems and is looking like he's flaming out. He's only pitched ~50 innings since TJ surgery in '07. I know the Yanks released and then re-signed him last year, but I don't think they've given up on him entirely. Hopefully it just took him some extra time to recover from TJ and he can develop into a contributor for us or another org.

    Whelan's issue is control. He has overpowering stuff - he just can't locate it. See his '09 stats between Trenton and SWB...

    Whelan '09: 4-0, 2.67 ERA, 67 IP, 85 K, 41 BB, 6.0 H/9, 11.4 K/9

    Pirates have tentative interest in Xavier Nady and Ron Villone
    Ron Villone is still in baseball? I thought he was finished a year and a half ago.

    The Mets and Cards are also looking at Nady as a buy-low guy. A supplemental pick would have been nice but I can understand why the FO didn't want to risk having him back on a 1 year/$7+ million deal.

    Stanton Pumped To Start Coaching Prep Team

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/yanke...a9t3yhfTqoIyyM

    Mike Stanton has yet to retire from baseball officially, but he has found himself a pretty good job in the game he loves.

    The lefty reliever, who earned three championship rings during his time with the Yankees, now is the head coach at Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J.

    The school has a tremendous winning tradition, just like the Yankees. The Ironmen football team was No. 1 in the nation this past season, and over the last two years the baseball team put up a 59-5 record, including a majestic 33-0 mark in 2008 under Greg Butler, who is now an athletic director at another school. Stanton helped with the team last year on the freshman, JV and varsity level.
    Stanton, 42, looks at this as a great opportunity, plus he gets to coach his son, Cameron, who is a right-handed pitcher and outfielder.
    Why did Stanton want to coach at this level?

    “I’ve been on the road so much,” he said. “Then I started going to see my son play. It kind of turned into me hanging around every day and they ended up giving me a uniform. But I’ve always had a passion of working with kids."
    “One of the things we’re really going to preach is teamwork, and being for the team,” Stanton said. “That’s always been my approach to put the team first, especially being the offensive linemen of baseball. While I was in New York, my job was to protect Mariano.”
    Best of luck to my favorite player...
    “Sometimes all of us need to be reminded that this is just a kid’s game. We just happen to be grown men playing it.” --Mike Stanton
