again for the near month absence, although there wasn’t much news to
speak of in Yankee Universe anyway [until today], but alas, a recap of
1. Sabathia Signs The Dotted Line
about eff-n time. I get that this decision for CC was a life choice and
not just a deal, but c’mon.. the pinstripes, the new Yankee Stadium,
New York City, 7 year job security.. oh, and 160 million.. how is it
humanly possible to say no to that? What’s funny about the deal though,
besides the fact that economy is drowning and people were losing their
jobs while CC was thinking: “Hmm.. $160 million.. sounds good I guess,
but gotta check with the wife,” is that this story breaks at the same
time the Mets sign K-Rod, and was it not hilarious that the other New
York team signs a guy who just broke the record for saves last year,
and still, they don’t have the story of the day? Ahh, always second best.. I applaud the effort though. 🙂
2. A Drumroll For Burnett Please
course, it wouldn’t be a real off-season without more than just one
huge deal. The Yanks have supposedly offered Burnett 5 years, with the
amount attached unknown, and A.J. could be making his decision soon. I
know that a great team on paper doesn’t mean squat, as that was sure as
hell proved this past season, but I can’t help but imagine what the
Yankee rotation will be looking like in ’09.
3. Speaking Of ’09
passed by the new Yankee Stadium semi-recently and honestly, saying
that it’s absolutely gorgeous doesn’t even do it justice. I don’t know
about everyone else but just looking at it once makes me forget about
the whining from everyone about it’s price tag.
Honestly, I haven’t been keeping up as much as I should be lately, so you guys are going to have to fill me in on what’s going on lol.
will definitely be making a better effort to keep posting from now on.
Been tied up a little, but I’ll try more to not let the blog die.
Side Side Note: Big congratz to Jeff & Allen at Red State Blue State for coming out on top for most visited Fan Blog this year.
