    ? about the Yankees...

    What the haters fail to realize is that the Yankees have reduced their payroll from last year by close to 20 million dollars at this point and are going to field a far better team from a year ago. The igmorant baseball fans dont see that 86 million dollars came off and we have replaced it with a much more talented 65 million worth of contracts. I feel that Brian Cashman deserves a great deal of credit for taking the moey we were wasting on Pavano,Giambi, Pettite and even Mussina (who was not seriously gonna have another season like that) and using it to sign the top three free agents available. So when the yankees win the world series I hope the haters have a better excuse than overspending!

    • he would deserve credit if he wasnt responsible for the f'n problem. he signed most of those contracts. + igawa+ keeping kennedy and cabrera instead of trading for johan. he is a moron and only a moron would defend him

    • Correct they chopped off close to 90 million subtracting many spots on their roster..They filled three spots for for close to 60 million so far..Pettit, another 10 - 15 if he signs, Manny, another 15-20 if he signs..oopps there is your 90 million smart A$$ and they still have pitching spots to fill and DH/OF and bench. More than likely they will exceed the 226 million they spent last year and come close to 240. That will be nearly 80 - 100 million more than any other team like it has been for the last 10 years. Keep spending sooner or later they'll figure it out that its not about buying theb best players its about finding the hungry players.
