    ...Except the Blue Jays.....and moving up to 125 million or so in payroll isnt negative when youve got the second richest baseball owner.

    I don't think horrible is a strong enough word to describe it.
    That's true.

    so apparently if he retires early the yanks can recoup anywhere from 70%-100% of his remaining 114 million dollar contract if doctors list him as unable to physically play baseball anymore, so for them the best case scenario is this surgery goes awry and they get off the hook.

    That's the only way he retires, otherwise the Yankees are on the hook for the next 5 years and 114 million.

    4-6 months, plus time getting ready to play after.

    Pretty much done for the season.

    that's true, but as a right handed hitter your left hip is extreme important to swinging the bat with power, he really might be done, i would feel bad that his career would end that way, but that's how it goes some time.

    He probably is done with an injury like that so late in his career but i really don't see him retiring because it would help the Yankees.

    He's gonna do what most athletes do and collect his money.

    I hope the Dr gives him ole PUP slip. Yankees are insured for the contract and will get back most if not all the money that is left on his contract. This was a terrible, terrible contract. I hope the Yankees and other teams as well have learned from this big mistake.

    I really doubt anyone sees a 10yr/275 million dollar deal at 31 years old ever again.

    The juice had us all fooled after what he did in 2007 and i think teams will start to realize how these guys truly age without the synthetic help.

    Toronto has to pounce on their opportunity to be on top of the East this season. The pressure is on them. The division is wide open now to everyone besides my Sox.

    It's being reported that the Jays will not be making any more significant additions to the roster (so we're not supposed to expect Dickey here anytime soon). They're looking at depth SP to start in AAA and ready to be replacements if injuries occur to the top 5, and possibly a right handed bat to platoon with Lind at DH if he continues to struggle vs left handed pitching.

    As for the Yankees, with a rotation of Sabathia, Pettitte and Kuroda and their lineup still containing Jeter, Cano, Granderson, Texiera, and likely Ichiro they're still a threat, although obviously a diminished one. I'd be surprised if they don't manage to win 87 games at a minimum.
