John Sterling: It's A Done Deal
John Sterling told WFAN the A-Rod deal was all but signed and would be ten years at $275 mil. Great. The over-spending Yankees look just as stupid as Texas, bidding against themselves to give A-Rod the highest package in baseball (if not sports) history. That's a DISCOUNT? A discount would be to let A-Rod get a firm offer from some other team and then come back to the Yankees for LESS. It is NOT a discount to give him the biggest deal in baseball history. And what is A-Rod thinking? Does he think we'll be grateful? The moment he grounds out on Opening Day, fans will start booing again. If Cashman didn't adamantly oppose this, he's an idiot. We may be cursed for the next ten seasons.
