Tavarez is quickly heading toward the Bengie Molina FA zone of no takers. With the Mets focusing on Baez, Tavarez will have to reassess his insane demand for a 3-4 year deal and perhaps settle on a 1-2 year deal. The Yanks could then trade Sturze and whomever else for a solid RF allowing Sheff to DH and improve our OF defense. Adding Tavarez would give us the bullpen of the ages and improve our bargaining position with regard to Dotel for 2007 and beyond.
Our starting rotation is more than adequate when backed up by a deep bullpen. Your thoughts.
