Yankees Suck.

I now need to find my old yankees suck t-shirts, or get a new one that could say "A-Rod blows Tex" or something like that.

How a team has the 4 highest paid players in baseball, after asking for about $400 mill from tax money to help build their $1 billion stadium, and can go spend at least $423.5 million on the hot stove.

So by my math, that makes the yankees spending $1.82 billion in a year.

Let's talk.

Lets not.

There are 2 possible options

1. Talk to Rusty
2. Be gay

I'd take both if there were such a way

This is why baseball needs a salary cap. You have teams that are fucking pathetic like the Yankees that spend limitless money on players just to win, and they end up not winning. Know why? Money doesn't get you everywhere, and that's showed because when's the last time the Yankees won a World Series?

I think sports players are paid way too much. There are people that work harder, like working 60-70 hours a week with no overtime just to pay the bills and feed the family. These guys entertain us. Sure, they have to have a lot of talent and be pretty strong, but is it really worth 180 million dollars? Hell no.

Baseball needs to talk salary cap to give teams like the Pirates a chance to win. I mean, 423 million dollars, while the Pirates have 50 million at our dispense. Fucking pathetic. If the Yanks roll face this year, I'm not even watching baseball.

I don't follow baseball, but are these players even that good to be worth half a billion dollars a year?

I'm 99% sure that it was not for a year...

I imagine it's a certain number of years contract...

If I'm wrong, fuck that shit.
