The Best Team Money Can Buy?....NOT!

Associated Press writer Ronald Blum recently had a story published exalting the New York Yankees for their "acqui$ition" of pitchers CC Sabathia and A.J. Burnett in a story titles, "Yankees get the last laugh."
We will see who gets the last laugh.
Add as many abreviated first names as you want.
Perhaps the Yankees are not done spending money to buy what they think is the best team that money can buy. I think it was the Tigers last year that made similar acquisitions and the baseball world is still waiting for that team to start playing ball.
We probably need to take a wait and see approach but right now, I believe that the Yankees have spent a ton of money and they still may not make the playoffs.
After the smoke of the winter meetings has cleared, it will be easier to sort out and evaluate the haves and the have nots. I don't care.
I am saying that right now, the Indians beat the Yankees in 2009 season head to head play.
I am saying that right now, the Indians reach the playoffs in 2009, the Yankees may not...again!
I am not impressed, not at all, and definitely not like Ronald Blum.
I say, "Bring on the Yankees!"

I'm not impressed either... slightly sickened, but not impressed.

The Yankees do not know how to built a "team" of people that can win over a long 162-game season and into late October (and early Nov).

Their players, no matter what they say, are only there for the money. They don't care about the history, tradition, or the way they look in pinstripes. They're overpaid people with oversized egos and that gets in the way of building a team that can win over the long haul.

No one wants the hastle of the NYC media... they actually contribute to the disfunction of the Yankees.
