Right and we are crying about Jeter's deal, Arod's deal, Teix deal and we will have to figure out what to do with Cano. Another monster deal is a dumb move.. Let Hamilton become an albatross contract for another team..
LOL.. I guess no contract can make anyone happy anymore. Smh.
There's plenty of contracts I'd love. I'm just sick of overpaying for dudes for are on the wrong side of 30 and we will be paying as they decline. Josh Hamilton is almost guaranteed to be a contract some team regrets 3 years from now. Why make the same mistake we've made with Arod, Tex, Giambi, etc?
and you are settign yourself up for future failure
you will have an infield of againg players locked that cant be traded and an OF and ace, you wont be able to make trades cause you will likely need to fill the rest of the team with mediocrity, there will be a rush to produce so whats left of the minor leaguers will either be traded for more band aids or their development be messed up, they wont have the money to draft so there wont be future international free agents like cano, nova or any amatuer top talent, we wont be allowed to spend i nthe draft
we will continue to see the same team we see now because we will continue to add payroll and unmovable players
that does not bode well for success, so then we will have to read whinny people make threads down the road on how the yankees are being cheap
Everything above is ON POINT.. And frankly I'd rather read those whiny threads knowing the Yankees are doing the right thing. Bringing down the payroll to avoid heavy taxing and not signing stupid contracts.
I want josh for pure entertainment. But anything over a 4 year deal is silly.
Business wise, he would provide plenty of revenue upside and that's really all that matters to the yanks.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought things like Jersey sales were subject to revenue sharing. So I'm not really sure how much income he'd bring in. My assumption has always been that the marketability of the team far outweighs that of any individual players. And I'm not sure Josh Hamilton really adds that much to NY.
