the yanks need some meat in the bullpen. their pitching will be fine if pettite comes back, as Hughes has more than proved himsel, Joba doesn't even have to qualify, and then you have moose and wang.
the a-rod situation. this is a touchy subject. i look it like this, if it had happened any other way, like every other free-agency deal--yeah, he opted out, just listen--nobody would have cared. people choose to fish around all the time, like Jorge did, and Mo, see?
but, you have to realize, athletes pay their agents a lot of money to make decisions for them. a-rod has had his agent since he was 16 years old, and has made him the highest played athlete in the world!!
he listened to some horrible advice, adn when he realized that it was effecting how people thought of him, he immidialtly contacted the yanks and began talks on how to fix things. then he goes and signs a 10-year deal? to me that says he's ready to be a yanke till he retires, and ready to go into the hall of fame for all the records he's going to break as a yankee!
he's proven, to me at least, that he wants to be in NY. he righted the wrong he did, which was based on a greedy agents bullshit.
now, on to fun stuff... who can't wait till Joba starts his first game in yankee stadium???
oh, and i wanna thank the mod who changed this thread to something more official!
