Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Left-hander Boone Logan and the New York Yankees have agreed to a $3.15 million, one-year contract, a raise of $1.25 million.

Logan earned the trust of Joe Girardi’s as a reliable and durable bullpen arm.  He agreed Friday on the non-guaranteed deal avoided salary arbitration.

One New York player remains in arbitration, with reliever David Robertson asking for a raise from $1,625,000 to $3.55 million and the Yankees offering $2.85 million.

Obviously if Mo doesn’t miss the bulk of 2012 he’s probably at the top of this list and Kimbrel spent most of 2010 in the minors, but Robertson probably deserves what he’s asking for.  I guess from the Yankees’ point of view it behooves them to pay him as little as they can in 2013 so that he won’t make that much more in 2014, when every penny spent above necessary is a disaster.

I was wondering over the weekend if the entire $189M payroll situation is a well-calculated and thought-out negotiating ploy to deal with Robinson Cano.  Then I realized that the Yankees aren’t that clever.
