Yankees Getting Nervous?

Tags: MLB Cliff Lee NY Yankees Texas Rangers
Is it unrealistic to think that the Yankees might be starting to get nervous about Cliff Lee? After Carl Crawford was signed by the Red Sox the Yankees upped the ante for the 32 year old free agent hurler by adding a seventh year to a now $160 million dollar deal. I have to think that if Lee were really looking to "cash-in" this would be a no-brainer and he'd already have had a photo op and this would be a done deal, but it's starting to appear that the welcome wagon that was out for the Rangers fans in the playoffs might possibly end up being the deal breaker.
If the Rangers are close in cash and the bride is already happy, then New York might have just signed their biggest free agent in Derek Jeter, which at $51 million bucks has had me rolling on the floor for days now.
 
I read this gem from a NY story today: "For somebody of that stature, it would certainly behoove him to be a Yankee, which would probably be for the rest of his career," Steinbrenner, the Yankees' co-chairman, told the The Associated Press on Friday. "I think that would be a great move for him but, of course I'm prejudiced."
 
After reading this I thought, yeah Cliff, take your wife from the small confines of Benton Arkansas, move her to a city where she and the kids can be tormented to no end if you go 1-4 to start the year while the NY beat writer's tear you a new ass on how much of a bust you are. Lee doesn't need the Yankees, but it's pretty clear the Yankees need him. This comment also screams, EVERYONE wants to play for the Yankees. I have to believe not everyone wants to play for Boston, so it's not inconceivable that someone, such as Cliff Lee might not want to play in NY for a lot of reasons, aside from his wife being trashed by so-called fans.
If the Yankees don't nab Lee it's probably going to make it even tougher for them to get Andy Pettitte to come back, unless they ink a deal with Zach Greinke, otherwise Pettitte would be coming back to the same team he just played with and Boston is loading up to run the table, so what's the point other than for just the sake of stocking up the bank account?

Thoughts from an Island GirL.

 

We are being fed a lot of baloney regarding awards like the Heisman,   BCS Champions and Cy Young Award winners.   Writers and apologists have clever explanations why they vote as they do and you know what?  It’s your fault.     That’s right,  you bloggers.   

 

You upstarts have the gall to have websites and blogs.   You dare question the writer’s dogmas and the writers resent you for that.   How dare you?

 

So then,   how do writers get around to mitigating the effects of blogs aside from marginalization of bloggers?   They come up with clever rationalizations.     If you call them on their shows and get to uppity,  they just hang up on you,  then bash you afterwards.

 

But sportwriters who vote on various awards and rankings,  can affect the casual sports fan,  in a way similar to hanging up.    And the results are final.   Remember Reggie Bush or O.J. Simpson’s Heismans?  Ha!

 

Or this year’s American League Cy Young Award.   These sportwriters know better than we do.  If not for them the integrity of the games would be lost and undeserved winners would continue to garner undue accolades.    A  13-12 pitcher.?  Need I say more?    

 

And even the umpires and refs have gotten into the act.  Like their talk show counterparts,   their renderings on close calls are as controversial as Bristol Palin on dancing with the stars.

 

Three incidents take front row seats in this madness.   

 

1)   Miles Austin hurdling a teammate after a TD reception.    It was more intriguing than a violation of league policy about excessive celebrations.    It was more about a portly middle-aged Viagra user,  taking a rule to the extreme.   

2)  Arkansas/Auburn -     There was first the phantom TD by Auburnand then the fumble by Broderick Green that wasn’t a fumble.    The refs hid behind the call on the field rule and actually doing the right thing and the consequences of not doing that.    

 

3).  Appalachian State/Villanova and talk of irony.    The guy with the funny name did not reach the end zone but because the play was called a TD,   then overturning the call was very unlikely.     Again!   Remember those SEC refs?   Suspended last year for being imcompetent.    Need I say more?

 

 

This is the Christmas season.     And as a gift for the coming,  I pray for a little integrity on behalf of the media but I guess that is like Dr House getting a shave….  lol
