    Excellent
    Although it is a little scary that the 4 biggest contracts in all of baseball will be in the same uniform come opening day.

    This move had to be made though. We needed a hitter to complement A-Rod as he was going to be left alone in that line up.

    It also most likely ends the Manny to the Yankees rumors and i was kind of getting used to the idea of having Manny in the Bronx.

    So what happens when they don't win the world series?

    Do they spend another 180 million?


    This **** is getting ridiculous. These players are NOT worth the money they are getting. Why the **** is a GOOD player, not a great player, getting 180 million?

    No player should get that money. I don't care if he hits 200 hrs a year. That is too much money, especially since the economy is in such **** right now.

    The Yankees have the highest-paid first baseman, the highest-paid third baseman, the highest-paid shortstop, the highest-paid catcher, the highest-paid starting pitcher and the highest-paid reliever in the history of the game.

    Anything except winning the world series will be a huge dissapoiment for this team. And i belive they will dissapoint you.........Go Mets.

    1. CC Sabathia
    2. A.J Burnett
    3. Cheing Ming Wang
    4. Joba Chamberlain
    5. Phil Hughes

    thats sick although i would want Chamberlain to set-up rivera and eventually take over as closer

    and we replace his 4 spot with Hughes and 5 will be Acever

    LMFAO talk about dissapointment. The METS are the leaders of choke artist the past two years...can u please stop being in first place and losing it all in September for once?

    Mets are one of the richest teams in baseball too...richest in the National league if not top 2.

    And the Mets aren't in a division, the best (American league East) with the Rays and Redsox who are top teams in MLB as of right now, and a above .500 team in Toronto.

    I love seein all the haters come out when the yankes flex there muscles with the money they got, especially managers/gms of other teams. Yanks have more money then they know what to do with, they don't care what the hell the economic climate is right now, as they shouldn't. They got money, spend it; make use of it. Is it in retrospect somewhat unfair that the yanks are spending 208 mil and rays i think 48, prob, but thats what we get for being NY. And as the Rays proved, you don't need mad money to be good. So quit complaining that they can do it and other teams can't, or how muc these players are getting. fact is the money athletes make has always been outrageously high. no human being is worth 180 mill or w/e arod is, he simply isn't. that money isn't fathomable. but he's going to get it either way.

    I just fail to see how being rich leads to feelings of accomplishment. If the Yankees win the WS, who cares. They SHOULD. Its when teams like the Rays with a tiny payroll and nonstar players gets there that its actually something to worry about.

    Teams like the Yankees, Mets, Cubs, and Red Sox should be in there every year with the money that they spend. No excuses. But it isn't anything to brag about with the money they spend.

    Bout time we gave props to the teams that are like the Rays who are the ones that deserve it.

    The Yankees have the highest payroll in baseball because they won 26 world series and they are the biggest franchise of any team in any sport, so people should stop bythcing about it already. They have the best history and that allowed fans to sell out every single game there. They are in a perfect location to always sell out, thats why there payroll is huge. They attract fans and have a great history that exceeds every other franchise. End of story to the haters.
