just to put another thorn into the side of red sox nation...

all the red sox has to do was agree to two million dollars more per year and the a-rod-manny deal would've gone through...

two million... that's it.

With all the money Texas is gonna pay towards the remainder of A(inanimate carbon)Rod's contract, it will work out to them having paid an average of $46.7Million per season for the 3 seasons he played for them, all 3 being last place finishes...now that's smart business...they'd have been better off keeping GWB as GM.

I haven't seen the Red Sox books. Maybe $2million per year for 7-8 years was beyond them w/ their current team. one thing we know, is the Yankees are never limited by $.

It never ends!

The rich in talent might be getting richer still ...

Free-agent pitcher Greg Maddux will sign with the New York Yankees sometime later this week, according to a report on New York's WABC-TV.

The Bergen Record, a New Jersey newspaper, reported that the Yankees have offered Maddux a deal and that the pitching is mulling it over but has yet to agree.

"We are not involved with Greg Maddux," Cashman said at the time.

Maddux turned down a New York offer in 1992 before signing with the Atlanta Braves.

The news from what the Record called "a Major League Baseball source" came despite reports Sunday that the Chicago Cubs were nearing a deal with the perennial All-Star right-hander.

The Cubs reportedly raised their initial offer of two years at $10 million (combined) to more like the $14 million to $15 million range.

There is no word yet on how much the Yankees offered.


Maddux is said to have rejected a multiyear offer from the San Francisco Giants but was said by some to be considering the Los Angeles Dodgers as well as the Cubs. Others said he already had pushed away feelers by the Dodgers and the St. Louis Cardinals.


However, all that wooing appears to have been to no avail.

Maybe on opening day A-"Inanimate Carbon" Rod and Derek "Michael's Twin" Jeter will collide going for a pop up and both be out for season...yeah, that's the ticket.

The Sports Guy (Bill Simmons) wrote a column about how Red Sox fans need to calm down and take a step back from all the craziness about the A-rod move.

I always enjoy Simmons' take on stuff like this

This does not really help them that much. I think it was a good trade, that does not significantly improve them. Soriano was putting up good nu,bers.

now that's one of the biggest loads of crap i'ver heard in a long time... they came up with 600 million dollars to buy the damn team, you're telling me they couldn't come up with 2 million more per year to finalize the a-rod deal? if they knew the yankees would get involved, they would have had no problem paying the 2 million. but they thought they were the only players, and that a few months into the season they could revisit the deal, with the rangers more likely to give up on the extra 2 million when they were in last place aaaagain.

theo epstein and larry luchino have no one to blame but themselves for not getting this deal done. just like the mets have no one to blame for not signing a-rod when he was a free agent 4 years ago, or vlad guerrero this off season.

Except that in the playoffs, Soriano was figured out...throw it outside, he'll chase it and whiff (to the tune of .133 in ALCS). I think the Yanks were wise to deal him, I think his best years are already behind him.

that's a bold statement to make about a guy who's hit 77 dingers, 201 rbis, and stolen 76 bases over the last 2 years... and who hasn't even turned 27 yet... yes he looked horrific in the post-season, but to say they've "figured out" a 26 year old kid is kinda jumping the gun a bit. there's no reason to believe that his best days are over. he just needs to make adjustments to his approach.

and anyone who could actually get to see him on a semi-regular basis knows that the strikeout thing is nothing new... he's averaging like 140 strikeouts over that same 2 year period. he swings at anything and everything... always has.

looks like the cubs have signed maddux, i guess they're trying to buy a championship
