Working only one day out of five and long November thru March vacation earns $36M ($324M nine years contract). Outrageous. $Yankees$ ..... money talks.
They have unlimited money, really, but paying too much luxury tax will hurt anyone!Yankees better hope this works out and he doesn’t disappear after 3 years. He shouldn’t, he’s got great stuff, some people don’t age well though.
Rendon got paid, too. I’m going to miss that guy, completely different feeling from when Harper left.
Yeah, I have a problem with these guys making a ton. Merchandise sales are a factor, too. You know how many New Yorkers are going to be wearing a Cole jersey in a year or two? But for me, I see minor league teams shutting down and minor league players barely making anything and think it’s a little sad.It just seems a shame, all that money, and there are still hundreds of thousands, if not more, barely able to eke by or barely surviving. There has to be a answer...........................but, alas, there is none.
I would have never guessed the Astros were doing that. That said, I specifically remember them bashing that year and it didn’t make sense the pitches they were sitting on. I just chalked it up to uncanny scouting at the time. Some of those sliders they were sitting on and pissing on elite pitchers is unicorn stuff though.Astros fan. Bye clean shaving cole. Astros have been accused of cheating, possibly but I'm still pumped for the season to start. Go stros.
