    Unless I am completely missing something the taxes going from 50% to 17% (which I think is what happens if they stay under one year) are really not that huge of a difference.

    If the limit stays the same at 189M and they go to their normal $210 payroll its a $10.5M tax hit with the 50% tax rate and a $3.57M tax hit at 17%. People really think they are doing this to save 7M? The tax hit just seems like a well timed excuse for the team. The bottom line is that they want to lower payroll to save the 40M they save doing that. I don't think it has much to do with the tax hit. Unless I'm missing something huge here.

    BTW, its fine if the Yankees want to lower payroll. I just think they can go about it smarter than they are and not try to do it one shot. If they gradually do it over the next couple years I feel like they'd be in a much better spot for now and the future.

    and they have put us in aposition that is might not be. eveyr simpyl assumignt hey will be terrible next year is wrong. this team could still compete, the pitchign staff is good, the offense we have now is fine and we'll see who the fill the other offensive holes with


    who could they have thrown money at that would significantly ahve helped this team that has signed already? the only one i'm uspet we lost out on is chavez

    we weren't winning championships spending 200 million a year while othe rchepaer temas were. its not that he doesnt want to win championships, he doesnt want to spend that kind of money and not win. thats not the way to do it in basbeall, and if you lookm at the teams that have been winning is shows.

    the plan shouldnt be get under 189 and then spend like crazy thats stupid, the plan should be get under 189 and then try to make smarter moves going forward, they may go over 189 but they should focus on younger and more balanced team, not the team that pays the most in FA

    He said exactly what I've been saying the ENTIRE time. As of now, barring a trade for a big young bat, gearing up for a youth movement starting next year and a wave of stud FA's for 2015. Derek will retire, I'm going out on a limb and saying that A Rod will retire if he keeps his current pace as well.

    Very possible 2015 Lineup (without any significant trades being made)

    Elvis Andrus SS
    Mason Williams (LF if Gardner is resigned, CF if not)
    Robby Cano 2B
    Billy Butler DH
    Chase Headly 3B
    Mark Teixeira 1B
    Tyler Austin RF
    Gary Sachez C
    Brett Gardner CF / Slade Heathcott LF

    Clayton Kershaw
    Felix Hernandez
    CC Sabathia
    Michael Pineda
    Manny Banuelos

    (Keep in note, Stanton is a FA in 2016)

    King Felix isn't going to leave the Ms and the Dodgers have the money to keep Kershaw.
    Friend: I think the NBA payed off the Heat in the first yr because of the politics. They threw game four and they payed Lebron because they were angry with what he did. So he had pay one way or another.

    F:There is no one in the draft coming out and trading players isn't going to happen. The Lakers are in trouble.

    F: Vogel doesn't run that team. Shaw does. If he leaves they are going to suck and Vogel will get fired.

    I'm reading two compelling sides to this argument.

    1. This is New York, not Kansas City.....spend the $$

    2. Be patient build a young core nucleus, compete in 2014-15

    I believe that a lot of this comes from the age of Yankees fans. Fans under 30 have really never known losing. If you were 13 years old in 1995 you have witnessed your Yankees win five world series and play postseason baseball 17 out of 18 years. The thought of not making the playoffs is absolutely absurd and almost incomprehensible to you.
    The other 29 major league teams have not fared quite as well. Reality for most teams is that just making the playoffs is a huge thing.

    Fans who remember the Mattingly years understand that making the playoffs in 1995 was incredible after so many lean years. The Yankees had witnessed the rise and fall of the mets in he 80s and now it was there turn. Young homegrown studs surrounded by mostly players acquired through smart trades the 90s Yankee juggernaut was built to not only win, but sustain winning.

    Throwing money after money is not a smart move right now. The Yankee farm system isn't as bare as some like to think, and players will always want to play here.

    Jeter, Arod, CC, Tex are all overpaid for what they can offer in the next 2 years. Adding Hamilton etc is throwing good money after bad. Yankees need to be smart here and build another dynasty not a year to year spending spree.

    Report: Cano will not give Yankees a hometown discount
    By Mike Axisa

    This is not terribly surprising, but Mark Feinsand and Christian Red are reporting that Robinson Cano will not give the Yankees a hometown discount with his next contract. In fact, one source indicated he may seek an Alex Rodriguez-type contract. “He knows he’s the best player on the Yankees,” said the source. “There’s no reason for him not to be paid that way.”

    Cano, 30, hit .313/.379/.550 (150 wRC+) this season and set career-highs in a number of offensive categories. He finished in the top six of the MVP voting for the third straight year and played at least 159 games for the sixth straight year. The current records for second base contracts are $15M annually (Cano and Ian Kinsler) and $85M total (Chase Utley), but Robbie is probably going to double that latter number. There’s no way he’ll get an A-Rod contract since all of baseball is looking at that albatross and laughing at the Yankees, but Cano didn’t hire Scott Boras last year to take any kind of discount.

    No non-sense!

    This also affects our IFA money, which guys like Cano and Mariano Rivera were signed through. So it's imperative that the yankees reach this goal.

    I don't get what is so hard to understand, stop acting like a spoiled brat, there is no reason we can't win with a payroll of 189 of less. The yankees have one WON championship in the last 10 years with this whole throw money at everybody approach, it's time for a change. If you can't get with this, find another team to be a fan of. It's getting annoying. Deal with it or change teams, simple.
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Hey, baseball is a marvelous sport but is also a business. Even the NYY have to stick to a budget. It's time to avoid bad contracts like ARod's.

    I love the Yankees and I love the fact that they are competitive every year, but during the 86-93 they did not even have a chance and I was a devoted fan just like right now. Your favorite team is like family: in good times and in bad times you love your family.

    PS: Robby Canó and Snake Boras want a contract for more than 7 years?...Adios Robinson!!!

    So shouldn't the plan be to get under 189M when it is best for the club? Like maybe when there are prospects a little closer to the bigs so they actually have options to fill positions cheaply. That seems like the better way to go about this than just cutting off spending completely and somehow try to build a completely new team in 2014.

    I'd feel a lot more confident if I thought the team had any plan at all. I could always be wrong but it doesn't seem like they do.
