Yanks Partner with China; Helton Will Not Be Traded to Boston
By mvyb, 14:39

After flying over two continents and an ocean, Yankee officials have reached a landmark agreement with the People's Republic of China.

The New York Yankees and the Chinese Baseball Association held a press conference today in Beijing, China to announce a landmark Memorandum of Understanding that for the first time formalizes a strategic alliance between a Major League Baseball Club and the Chinese Baseball Association.

The Agreement, subject to Major League Baseball’s rules, regulations and agreements pertaining to The People’s Republic of China, states that the Yankees will provide the CBA with guidance in training baseball players, which will include sending staff (coaches, player development, scouting and training personnel) to China to assist the CBA. The partnership will also allow the CBA to send staff to the Yankees’ facilities in the United States in furtherance of those goals.

Among the men working out this deal were NYY Team President Randy Levine,  General Manager Brian Cashman, Assistant General Manager Jean Afterman, and Michael Tusiani, Vice President of Corporate Sales and Sponsorship.
The results of this deal could be very beneficial for the Yankees, sometime down the road. New York will be able to grab China's top prospects and ship them straight to Florida and into pinstripes. For more on this story head over to the The Journal News.
Rockies chairman and CEO Charlie Monfort announced Monday night that talks with the Red Sox regarding a possible trade of first baseman Todd Helton had broken off. The club's two-paragraph statement said, "There will be no further discussions."

The fact the teams were talking went public during the weekend, but Monfort told MLB.com that "it seems like one percent of all deals get made." Immediately thereafter, media reports surfaced noting sticking points, such as the players the Rockies would receive from the Red Sox and the amount of the $90.1 million Helton is owed for the next five seasons that Colorado would pay.

So instead of heading to Boston, Helton is being counted on by the Rockies -- as he has been since breaking in late in the 1997 season -- as Spring Training approaches.

The Rockies and BoSox have a somewhat tense relationship, so I'm not really that surprised the deal fell through. But I am very happy Bronx pitchers won't have to face him this year...
