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.

Daily Finance: The Yankees Score Big with a $1.5 Billion TV Deal

According to Bloomberg, the Yankees are now signed with the YES Network through 2042—an incredibly long 30-year television contract. The club got $85 million in fees from YES for the current year, and the sale includes a 5 percent increase annually in that rate for 30 years.

That means that by 2042, the club will be making $367 million per year just to have their games shown on TV. At today’s salaries for ball players, that’s enough to pay the top 16 contracts in baseball—with enough money left to fill out the roster.

I have no idea what’s going on with our host now, and don’t feel like spending my Thanksgiving figuring it out so I’m bringing this version of the site back temporarily.

Back to this article, it seems to me that any time you commit to a 30 year contract you may end up regretting it by the end of it.  And I don’t want to even get into the whole Rupert Murdoch possibily owning the Yankees eventually thing.
