NO NO NO NO!!! I guess if one is okay with gluttony, you can think it is like paying only 7.5 million a year subtracting Weaver's salary, but the Yankee Payroll has to be close to 210,000,000 dollars after we finally sign Sheffield for real. Its a shame, the Yanks already had a great starting rotation. Here's what it is now:








All of these guys could be 1 starters (Well Lieber was.) This is just insane, and I think Bartolome de Las Casas said it best:

"Ill acquired wealth will make Spain the poorest country on Earth."


Will Yankee fans be able to tolerate non-all star teams in the future? It can't keep going on like this, it is far too inefficient. Its crazy.

maybe he just needs a change of scenery



He was an adequate pitcher in Detroit, but I don't know. He changed his whole approach and style in New York, and when I saw him pitch at Yankee Stadium in July, he was AWFUL. Weaver could be good in LA I guess, but I doubt it.
