If George really wants to top this, after he signs Sheffield, he tells Cashman to make two phone calls. The first one is to Derek Jeter. Tell him he's moving to 3B. The second one is to Tom Hicks. Tell him to send Rodriguez.
in next year's ALCS.
WHAT'S BETTER THAN SCHILLING AND JOHNSON?
How about Schilling and Martinez?

Given Schilling's age and Martinez' contract status, this move has "we want to win it all next year" written all over it.
Expect the Yankees to counter by signing Sheffield before the week is over.
After that, Cashman's real test over the next weeks will be restraining Big Stein to avoid making a panic signing (like giving Colon $15 M a year over 5 years), and instead keep working the Expos to send Vazquez to the Big Apple.
