    ARod     25M  21M   20M  20M (+$6M for #660, 714, 755, 756)

    Sab       23M  23M   25M  25M(option w $5M buyout)

    Tex       22.5  22.5  22.5 

    Ells       22M  22M  22M  22M  22M  22M  22M

    Wells    25M > (6M)

    Sori      19M  > (5M)

    McCann 17M 17M 17M  17M  17M  15n (option w/ no buyout)

    Kuroda   16M

    Beltran  15M  15M 15M

    Jeter       8M (Player option with $3M buyout)'

    Suzuki    6.5M

     

    $171M for just 9 guys is shocking.

    $141M for 7 guys (6 for at least 3 years).

    They do lose Wells, Soriano, Jeter and Suzuki after 2014, but that's only about $25M in savings and 4 slots to fill.

     

    [/QUOTE]

    In all seriousness, Moon, why would they have 4 slots to fill?  They would still have 3 good starting outfielders in Ells, Gardner and Beltran, so Ichiro, Soriano & Wells could be replaced by a 4th outfielder type at minimum dollars, and if Jeter decides to retire (doubtful), they have that super defensive SS that you're really high on, Brandon Ryan, signed through 2015, don't they?  

    [/QUOTE]

    True enough. Roster spots, but not really key role positions.

    Pretty amazing ho the Yanks will have 3 back-up OF'ers getting paid close to $50M combined in 2014 (some money coming from other teams).

    They still need to replace Rivera or the set-up slot if they slide a current player to closer.

    They still need another SP despite the Kuroda signing.

    If they can get under the budget for one year then it resets the clock on penalties for going over... but it would not appear they are staying under budget.  Ho Hum... another year with the Yankees.

    Yankees are desperate after last season.  I was LMAO when Cano signed with Seattle and Yankme fans were whining about not overpaying for him.....Are you kidding me.  Throwing money at every player is a Yankme tradition and the only way they know.  It's very gratifying to see the Spanks lose one of their own....please shed some tears with me...lol.  The poor, poor Yankmes.

    Dear Mr. Cano:

    Thank you for leaving the Yankees and the AL East. 

    I wish you the very best in Seattle.  The drive from Seattle to Vancouver during the Spring is very nice.  You should take one of your fancy sports cars and enjoy the ride. 

    Sincerely,

    A Red Sox fan

    I'm a big fan of Gardner, but I don't think he is a huge trading chip.  The reason I was against trading Ells last year was that I thought the value of his walk season, plus the draft pick, was more than we'd have gotten in a trade.  And Gardner is worth less than Ells.

    I understand. All I meant was he was MLB quality, expendable due to Elles taking over at center, and that with only a year left prior to FA he may be of reasonable value to a play-off team.... thus maybe a modest starter could be had to help the rotation.

    He is indeed their only true trade chip.

    The Yankees should go after Omar Infante.  

    As for Gardner, I am not sure what the Yankees can get for him.

    It's so pathetic how the once Mighty Yankees are now trying to keep up with the Sox.  They did the same thing after the Sox won it all in 07 and then the yankees missed the playoffs trying to buy their way back in.  They are still paying for what they did  in the 08 off season and are willing to repeat the cycle...If I were a yankee fan I'd be demanding Cashman be canned.

    The Yankees have issued contracts totaling 311 million dollars this offseason, fiscal resposibility has finally landed in the Bronx, and just think they didn't re-sign Granderson or Cano can you just imagine what they would have spent???????????? Oh wait they are not done spending yet! They don't have a closer or the two starting pitchers they still need.....Bleacher seats are now going to be 175.00 a seat per game!!!! No more cheapseats in the Bronx!!!

     



    don't U feel a tad silly for saying that

     

    considering that even with all this nyy spending you talk about

    it's still cheaper to go to a game in the bronx vs the fens

    others can but I can't blame nyy for having the 2nd highest prices

    but it seems kinda odd for a sox fan w/highest prices to call them on it

    [/QUOTE]

    There's a reason the Sox tickets are the highest, Zac. 38,000 seats vs. 50,000, supply and demand, and if the fans want ownership to continue to put a competive team on the field year after year, it's going to cost them.

    really Jbay

    so that's gives him merit 4 calling the nyy on their prices

    don't U think nyyfans expect to pay extra for having the highest payroll

     

    BTW TB puts a pretty competitive team out there with much cheaper tickets

    sox & nyy tickets are high because that's what they can get

    I didn't say that.  My post was in response to your statement, and what the reason is the Sox ticket prices are the highest; less seating capacity and trying to keep pace with NYY payroll. I think both fan bases expect to pay the highest and said why; supply and demand and  the price you pay, for competitive teams. 

     

    The Rays have had competitive teams because of their 1st round draft picks, which they've  used well. When players hit FA, they don't resign or trade them. Their ticket prices are low because there is supply, with no demand. They can't get fans, as it is.

    Has your cheese slipped so far off the cracker, you can't tell a joke when you see one?
