Well, considering the wonderful deal he struck with Jeter, A-Rod, Posada, AJ Burnett, Weaver, Contreras, that Japanese pitcher, the big unit, etc. I think it is fine for him to gloat about the one expensive bullet he dodged.

I gotta say I am nauseated by all the attention Posada got last night. The DH got a single (woo hoo!) with men in scoring position. Give the guy a medal. If it were Bernie Williams doing that we would just yawn because that is what is expected of a Yankee. Posada has been terrible all season and now he gets one key hit and he is seen as a new Mr October.

The teams in the small market underinvestment spiral like the Florida Marlins still make money: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/08/24/1789068/leaked-data-show-strong-profits.html Teams can either focus on winning or focus on making money. The Marlins have been fairly competitive, have one of the lowest payrolls in baseball, very few fans at the games and make money even in seasons where they truly suck.

All of the sudden it looks generous? It is way too generous. We don't pay players for past performance. Cano makes 9 million, can anyone say that the in the next three years Jeter will be worth more to the team than Cano?

The most telling thing about Giambi is that last year with the Yankees the opposing teams would put up these ridiculous fielding shifts and he wouldn't try to learn to pull the ball just to get a friggin' hit. He could have bunted on 20 times during the season easily, but no....all about swinging big.
