The answer is: D) Alex Rodriguez.

I know. Fairly obvious given the choices but interesting nonetheless. Among other crowing in the winter of 2003-04 about A-Rod signing with NY:

* “Summer or Winter, the Yankees Show the Red Sox How to Win” — New York Times
* “A-Rod Steal is Bombers' Best Move Since Babe” — New York Post

From “Don't Let Us Win Tonight: An Oral History of the 2004 Boston Red Sox's Impossible Playoff Run” by Allan Wood and Bill Nowlin.
