So, the Yankees traded Mr. Unreliable, Jose Contreras, for Esteban Loaiza, in essence getting reliability but trading a player with four years left on his contract for one who is a free agent at the end of the season. I think it’s a fantastic, and unexpected move, and it should shore the starting rotation up going into the stretch run. The moral of the story is that the Yankees want to win it all this year, and are willing to continue to mortgage the future to do it. In many ways, this was a better, smarter deal than any one involving Randy Johnson would have been. Kudos to Mr. Cashman.
