Re: Yanks Are Paying More than Triple Market Value For their Players- Sox Getting Better Value

Rafael Sorriano, Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada anyone ?
The Yanks are currently paying more than triple market value for
Jorge Posada isn`t hitting like a real DH right now... Jorge Posada is
hitting like a DA (Designated for assignment). Derek Jeter is currently
suffering from ARS (Age-Related Slump). Mark Teixeira is finally establishing himself as a .250 hitter.
A.J.Burnett is probaly a good five innings pitcher. Mariano Rivera
isn`t pitching like the old Mariano... and to make worse, Mariano
has more miles in his gas mileage than an old Ford Pickup truck.
A-Rod the highest paid player in baseball is off to a good start,
but his age and hip issue may turns this smoking gun into a water
pistol. And the Yanks Nation is already felling very sorry for the
costly acquisiton of Rafael Sorriano.
The Yanks are paying million and million of dollars for these atletes,
and they are getting small returns for their huge investment.
The Yanks are a good team, but the price is too high... their
price is even higher than the Empire State Building
On the hand, The Red Sox are also paying top dollars to their players,
but they may get better returns for their money than the Yanks.
Carl Crawford and J.D Drew are the only players on Sox roster that
are not earning their money right now. But the good news is that
Crawford is still very young and J.D Drew is playing his last year in
Boston. Also the Red Sox have the best defenseve & SP rotation
The Red Sox are young and exciting. In term of long term investment,
Theo Epstein will get better returns from his investment. The facts are
there. Trust me. -- Beni
So true, Beni! And you know, some people can't handle the truth!
