    I don't do ST games - does anyone else charge "premium" tickets like this?

    Regardless, I see the Sox got fined - that money should be used to refund the fans who went to the game, if not for the...

    What was the mistake?

    Keeping all our players, getting 85 wins, sitting home in October, and having to lose draft picks to sign FAs to shore up a gutted team because we have a poor farm system?

    But Jeter went around Cashman and got more money out of Levine and Hal. Cash was going to resign him, but probably for less. I didn't complain a whit about Mo.



    We got ARod from Texas on a...

    While I agree in general, the problem is that the ownership put the cap on while also burdening the payroll with contracts such as ARod, Jeter, Ichiro, and the Sorianos. That substantially reduces...

    He's had "full control" since 2008, no? That's long enough to build a better farm system.

    However, I don't know that he's had full control for some time, if ever. 2008 (youth movement FTL) and...

    And that's a debate we'll continue to have - how far does that consent go? How does age factor in? Does that include incest or polygamy or homosexuality or interrace and interfaith marriage?...

    To my knowledge, the church's basic stance has for a long time been "hate the sin, love the sinner." I don't believe that's changed or is going to at any time in the future. The Catholic Church is...

    a) I've been in favor of gay marriage since a friend raised the question over 20 years ago. Before then I never gave it a thought (and not many straight people had either).

    b) Logically, unless...

    For many principled reasons I am against this idea.

    But selfishly, as a teacher who will never get to go to an opening day game until after I retire, I also in favor of this idea.

    Let me be fair to the other artists - they may work in other contexts. The second one looks like it belongs in an elementary school, the other maybe in a mall or a hotel. Only the first makes sense...

    You know, sometimes it is OK to lie about an injury. Just tell us he pulled a hammy, or had an ingrown toe nail. Anything.

    While that affects his dollars, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. A good utility player can be valuable, and I don't really see many of them.

    In 24 hours we went from Yankees being frontrunners to Yankees not making an offer. Someone's sources are off base.

    We lost Cano, Mo, Pettite, Granderson, Boone Logan AND Alex Rodriguez. And I think you have to count those losses in with the gains when evaluating the offseason.

    Include this year and the buy out the Yankees have Gardner guaranteed for 5 years and $60mil or 6 and $70m if they pick up his option. He's averaging more than 3 WAR at this point. As long as he...

    Thing is the Yankees are in need (this year or next) in three infield positions, with no one really close to ready in the minors. Whether he is ML ready or just someone who can jump in to AA or AAA,...

    That's the power of free agency. Once others get to make offers, prices rise.

    I'm going to guess that in choosing Ellsbury over Granderson, they Yankees may be changing their approach to offense, looking for more guys that are able to make contact than the all-or-nothing...

    Really this is the price of stupidity. They clung to this "no extensions" policy, when they should have signed Gardner (and D-Rob and Cano) to an extension years ago.

    Apparently this was being negotiated back to the winter meetings, and thus when the salary agreement for this year was made. If you fold this year into the deal then you get Gardner for 5 years at...

    So does this mean we can start talking with D-Rob now?
  23. I doubt he would sign the contract and let...

    I doubt he would sign the contract and let himself be traded at least in the next two seasons. If he's going to a new team, better to hit the open market in November.
  24. I have nothing to base this on but hopes, rumors...

    I have nothing to base this on but hopes, rumors and supposition, but its pretty obvious Soriano is gone after this season. I expect them to work their way out of ARod's contract, either because he...

    Hell yes! My favorite Yankee will remains so beyond the life of ARod, CC's, Teix's and Beltran's contract!
