I just got done reading on si.com where the Yankees are looking to sign CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett AND Derek Lowe for next season. It looks like Hank is picking up where George left off and throwing multi-million dollar contracts around like they were nothing more than coasters.
And while they've spent the budget of about 37 small world countries over the last 7 years with 0 titles to show for it, this renewed effort by the MFY's to buy themselves a championship has me more than a little nervous.
Hopefully it'll work out as well as giving A-Rod the gross national product has resulted recently, but you can never count the Evil Empire out. To pile on to this, Red Sox Nation is dealing with the possibilities of Mikey Lowell being on his way out and Mark Texiera coming to town. Although if you believe the talking heads, HE'S going to New York as well.
Until it all gets sorted out I'll be in the garage slamming my head repeatedly into the car door.
At least it beats the alternative.
