As reported on MLBTR. com this morning another pitcher has escaped the clutches of the evil empire. Boone Logan has decided that he will taking his talents to Colorado for the 2014 season. Can either Jacoby or McCann pitch?
[/QUOTE] he did a good job...i did think he would stay somehow...
Jete, I'm sorry. Seriously. I enjoy the Yankees demise (IMO, of course), but I honestly feel bad for a person/Yankee fan like you. I hope you understand that. I know you're here, and I know you read posts here, like mine :), but I also know what it's like to be on the losing end of things. On the bright side, they are the Yankees...ya never know.
I have been in Manhattan for the past month and a half for work and who you should really feel bad for are the Mets fans. There is a collective manic depression among fans of that team around here right now... I can't even listen to talk radio here or I want to run a hot tub with a sharp blade.
They signed Colon to a two year deal with the fat baaastard is 41 years old after his best season and paid 2 years @ $20 million until he is 43 years old... he was paid to take the place of Matt Harvey who is out for the season. Every fan who calls in thinks he had a steroid year since his last year was so good after being terrible (including a bout with the Red Sox). Harvey had Tommy John on October 22 and pitched to a 2.27 ERA in 177 innings next year.
The other sign they had was Chris Young for $7.25 million for one year and Granderson... that is literally it for a team that was 22 games back in their division last year with possibly the best starter in the NL in Harvey making rotations.
I do feel bad for the Mets. All the time. I'm always happy when they can come up with a good contract. They've always been in the shadow of the Yankees, and that's gotta be tough. And I actually know one of the Mets.
