    Anything can happen in the PS, but in those bajillion possible permutations, only 14 result in the Yankees winning a championship. Once-in-a-lifetime contenders (Royals, for instance) need to take...

    Yep. Not at all prospect hugging here. I just don't think that Hamels is what puts us over. He's not Randy Johnson, and we don't have Curt Schilling. I think he just makes us a better mediocre team....

    We all have moments of weakness. We all make stupid decisions. Some of us have been fortunate in that our mistakes didn't result in destroying our lives, even if they could have. So long as a person...

    Looking at the combined salaries in Leo's proposed deal, the Yankees would take on an additional $5.75m by bringing in Pujols (unless they have to pay ARod his HR bonus this year). Since Albert's...

    Is there much difference in cost? Seems to me that, if the salary totals are comparable (2 years of Tex, and likely 3 of ARod and CC), I'd rather have the roster space freed up. Besides, knock $50m...

    1) Moncada was not in their pipe at the time.
    2) Prospects remain prospects. Nothing guaranteed.
    3) The one thing prospects are always good for are trades. There is a pitcher in Philly that could...

    Exactly. I still think the Yankees are gun shy after that deal, and maybe now after Tanaka's elbow.

    Still, what hurts is that he was right there for the taking! The Yankees wanted and could have...

    What do you mean they are using times from the 60s for comparison? I'm comparing TV commercial times from 1990 to now. We are comparing game length from the last decade and still seeing it stretched...

    Still in the minors? Whatever cheap talent the Yankees have been signing, they haven't been making much of an impression in the majors for a long time.

    No "if" about it - we already have. Unless they get lucky, the Yankees are deprived the chance to sign the best IFA candidates until 2017. We have about 4 months left to grab all the talent we can....

    Time allotted to commercials (supposedly) haven't changed since 1990. Of course, we now have more pitching changes, and each pitching change adds an addition commercial break.

    If all there was to baseball was pitches and innings - which haven't changed in at least a century - then games would not have been getting progressively longer.

    You're creating a straw man. At no point do I say no one else is doing it, nor that they shouldn't get punished. ARod was doing it, stupidly, got caught, and was punished. Others were caught up in...
