    If they got scared off from those early numbers, what did they think was going to happen on the open market? They makes their decision not to trade him in 2013 even less understandable. I am always...

    Now that Jeets is gone, the Core Four gone, YS2 is gone, Torre is retired, Monument Park safely houses Tino and Pauley.... I think maybe now is the time we also say good-bye to that last connection...

    They should have tried to sign him to another rather then let him hit the market. If they did, and Boras/Jay-Z said "no" so be it, but to my knowledge no one has ever hinted at such an exchange. What...

    Who says he didn't?

    We have to be careful about taking a report like this at face value. We don't know who said what, let alone what actually happened. Any speculation about a private conversation...

    But that belief is based on faith, is it not? No real evidence that he would have taken that much less money. How much can you say we did not negotiate in good faith when we offered the 2nd largest...

    Don't care about the closer role. The guy has been an elite or near-elite reliever since 2009. I have no reason to think pitching one inning later will destroy that talent. Obviously there is...

    So I guess that it is good for the Cubbies to be starting a second century without a championship? Or to let the Mets flounder in the game's biggest market? Or for the A's and Rays to compete while...

    He's played 40-odd games in 2 seasons, which isn't much better. As for Jeter, he's mediocre, not worth the money they are paying him if he wasn't *Derek Jeter*, but at least he doesn't have bad hips....

    The difference is Joba was ALWAYS a starter before the Yankees brought him up in relief. He had the makeup and stuff to be successful as a starter. DB doesn't. He admits it. He has gone on record...

    There's other factors here beyond the salary. That's a sunk cost whether ARod plays or not. Sure a miracle may happen and wipe him off the books (another ban, someone taking his contract, retirement)...

    It wasn't aimed at you, it was aimed at Greater Baseball Wisdom in general. But since you brought them up:

    Going to be tough because salaries didn't get to $100m until relatively recently. I thought Zito might beat Wells, but he's got about 33 WAR.

    Yes, that's been the narrative for some time. That he started using when he went to Toronto and brought that culture with him when he was traded to NY.

    Exactly. And as much as my Yankees-bias makes me stand by Ruth as the greatest ever, the truth is he would never be that good today. But just taking Ruth into 2014 wouldn't be fair to him, because he...

    The trick, as always, is determining what Cashman is responsible for. The roster problems are largely a holdover from Plan 189, and just as it took a couple of years to do that damage, it was going...

    The problem with that statement is that there aren't many people as well known as A-Rod period, let alone in baseball. Are there even 10 other players in the last decade as well known as he is?
