Gary who?

The Yankees trade for Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle just continues to pay off. Both shined for the Yanks tonight. It will be quite interesting to see what happens with Gary Sheffield in the offseason. I know that the acquisition of Abreu would probably mean that Sheff's option wouldn't be picked up for 2007. I just can't even fathom what the Yankees lineup would be like though if they were to pick up the option and use Sheffield at DH or First Base next year. A lineup with a healthy Sheffield and Matsui, Jeter, A-Rod, Cano, Jorge, Giambi, Damon, and Abreu would have to be the best in the American League. The age-old question would be the rotation since it is very much old age right now. I shouldn't be thinking about 2007 quite yet because obviously there is still a lot of baseball and unfinished business to take care of in 2006.
