    Oh, I’m not blaming anyone.

    Just posting what I’m seeing as I avoid sportscenter.

    Would like to stay under the cap.

    Another arm is always good.

    The AL is loaded.

    Yanks still the 4th best team IMO...

    3rd best.
    Houston
    Cleveland

    Then Wild cards come are Texas, Seattle, Angels, Red Sox next year.

    Seems weird that a small first year would matter. It's all getting paid to him anyway.

    I’d imagine it more he thinks he’s better than 7 for 160.

    He’s not...

    Seems late to have so many top FA’s unsigned, no? Not sure why... maybe because the ‘19 FA crop is supposed to be loaded?

    Combination this year sucks, Boras has them all, the luxury cap is feared by a few and next year will be huge.

    I’m hoping this makes DLsbury look cheap.

    If the redsux bastard would just lift his no trade, we could get something done...

    We will eat a half of 3 for 68.

    Or..

    Add a top prospect and it's a third...

    My favorite Yankee is Jacoby. He is an example of how FA has gotten out of control. He is one of Cashman’s few mistakes. I don’t a single Red Sox fan that was upset when he signed with the Yankees.

    It's a bad, no VERY bad signing.

    It's the only time he lost his cool.

    Robby Cano could've been Jeter on steroids...if I may.

    A 3000 hits guy with 400 HRs...and a Dominican hero in NYC.

    And he took the $$$ and went to Seattle.

    So Cash throw the $$$ in his face, says your about as good as this guy...and signs DlLsbury.

    Asinine.

    That’s a lot of Fenway booing for fans that aren’t upset.

    They don’t like anyone going to the Yankees. Even if it’s someone draining the Yankee payroll with little production and their replacement is much better.

    He got some boos but a lot of cheers his first game back.
    It was nothing like Damon, Clemens, Boggs.
    No Red Sox fan wanted him back at that price.
    He wasn’t hated anything close to others.
    He got the any Yankee at Fenway booing before the fanbase has gotten apathetic like it is now. They cheered Jeter on the way out.
    You nailed it in your 2nd paragraph.

    Doorman is sorta right...I just moved him out.

    He’s free to go get his stuff...at the bottom of the East River.
