    twm, steven and zac,

    Do you think Tanaka is a sure thing and the contract terms were warranted, considering he's never pitched in mlb? The fact he's been so sucessful in Japan, there's little to no chance he won't be, against a higher level of hittters?   

     

     I'd appreciate an honest answer

     




     

     

    do U know what bryce harper would say

    ' that's a clown question'

    there R no sure things

    I got to tell U

    it's sounds like sour grapes when U guys

     ignore the fact that plenty of other teams were willing to

    spend more than the yankees on  him

     

     

     

     

      Who? The Dodgers weren't close. Did the cubs offer more money/ years, with an opt out clause after 4 years? You didn't answer the question either. Just your "sour grapes" and clown question to the poster who asked a  a valid question, to which I'm asking for a honest answer

     

    relax slash

    more as in more of their payroll % and rev %

    I did, more than once.  My understanding is the NYY blew all other teams away. Whats sour grapes about that contract for a pitcher who hasn't pitched here, yet who may or not come close to warranting it?

    depends zac.  if this deal caused the yankees to not reset the tax limit by continuing to stay over the luxury tax limit the next few years the % of the impact would severly s|-|ift.**

    but yes, $22MM of a $200MM budget is probably less than the cubs %.  (i use the cubs because as far as i have read they were the only other team to come close to the years/salary that the yankees offered).

    Exactly.  The mods think we've found a way around "that other word".  How long will it be before they start banning l-l too? 

    This would be funny if it weren't so sad - or sad if it weren't so funny.

           "like darvish and kuroda he will have success imho"

                I was thinking the same thing ......... but now?

                I may have to revisit my thought process.

                After all you had Montero as the next Johnny Bench.

                We all know how that turned out.

                Montero wasn't your only prediction that bombed.

                Maybe those other sites are better suited for your abilities.

    not sure how much merit there is in pinning the tax on 1 contract

    but point taken slash

    as far as the tax reset goes

    the way I understand it  

    the yanks could have saved 100 mill over the next 3 yrs

    things is

    I heard they lose over 50 mill if they don't make the PO each yr

    If you're referring to the RS, that goes away after the 2014 season (IIRC - but it's soon) if a team exceeds the LT level.  Some of these contracts the Y's have signed this year could haunt them for years to come - Tanaka and Ellsbury come to mind immediately - as they're going to make it harder and harder for them to get under the LT level.

    EDIT:  My bad, Zac.  I see what you mean now. 

    However, the point I stumbled onto still stands.

    Who because the Dodgers weren't close and my understanding is the Cubs were closer, but no where near. Who were the "plenty of teams who were willing to pay more for him?"

    plenty of stories out there with 5 teams in the running including the Dbacks, wsox etc

    "Plenty of teams" were reportedly, in the mix. None were reported to have come close the NYY offer, let alone pay more. All I'm looking for here is it's the NYY being the NYY. It's how they roll.
