Isn’t there supposed to be a recession going on? Aparently, everyone is hurting for money in this world except for the New York Yankees. C.C. Sabathia joins the Bronx Bombers signing a 7-year, $161 million dollar deal.
Look, this is getting absolutely disgusting. How many times can we take a look at an instance where the New York Yankees went out and got the biggest gun they could find? All the while you hear Yankee fans snicker like the fat kid who’s eaten so many chocolates he’s going to vomit. They even know it’s ridiculous but they’ll give you some kind of half-assed retort that “well it’s good for us and bad for you”. ‘You’ is every fan who doesn’t choose to follow the evil empire.
Oh, so now you want to add Derek Lowe or A.J. Burnett (watch it be both) to a pitching staff that already includes now Sabathia, Chien-Ming Wang, Phil Hughes,
Carl Pavano, Joba Chamberlain, and possibly And Pettite. Know what? That’s fucking annoying. You don’t need all that.
And next year I’ll allow myself to reference this post while the Yankees get in bed with the top 8 members of the 2009 free agent class. You can literally picture any star in baseball wearing pinstripes, and why is that? Isn’t there something backhanded about that whole concept?
How about this: the Yankees ask the city of New York for $370 million dollars so they can go and have their hands in every marquee player’s contract negotiations. Meanwhile, Indians fans are texting me about how essential the Kerry Wood signing is going to be and Reds fans are coming up with theories about how Ramon Hernandez could hit 30 home runs in Great American Ball Park this season.
Once again, eat shit Yankees. You’re crooked and you get away with it.
