    .....The More They Stay The Same

    Despite hearing that the Evil Empire wants to change their sick ways of outspending all their opponents and finally get under the 2014 salary cap threshold of $189,000,000.00, we have today's news:

    "Major League Baseball sent a revised accounting to the Yankees Tuesday, raising New York's payment to $19,311,642 from $18,917,994. New York is the only team to pay the luxury tax this year. The Yankees' final payroll for luxury tax purposes climbed from $222.5 million to $223.4 million. The Yankees pay at a 42.5 percent rate on the amount over the $178 million threshold."

    The ONLY TEAM that was in default of the guidelines.....sort of like having The Boss still occupying the big desk,eh? Well - good thing they didn't waste all that money and went out and brought home the hardware.....wait - never mind!

    Well, that was the Yankee fan mantra back in the late 1990's and very early 2000's, and most defintely what they told Sox fans.   All The Time!  

     

    What happened to change all that?

    JD Drew's contract didn't get signed until some time in Feb.

    JD Drew's contract didn't get signed until some time in Feb.

    good call carnie

    never said I had a good memory

    all though I probably did at 1 time ;-)



    That's 14 days of silence. For J.D. Drew, that's nothing. His wait lasted 52.

    "Fifty-two days … The worst part of those were the first few days," Drew said. "With Theo [Epstein], our relationship, and Scott, it was understood we were going to get this deal done. I don't know what they're telling Napoli. I'm sure it's similar to that."

    Drew might be the standard bearer when it comes to an example of a contract being reworked due to medical issues. His detour started in a hotel room on Dec. 13, 2006, when it was relayed that he would not be sharing a press conference with Julio Lugo as planned, and stretched all the way until late January 2007.

    "It would have been nice to work it out in 20 days instead of 52 days. It was a unique situation to say the least," Drew said. "I can say this: It got me out of a big, stinking press conference."

    Drew can relate somewhat to whatever Napoli might be feeling, although while such situations are similar, they are, as the former outfielder points out, rarely exactly the same.
