The Yankees paid him well for his past 10 years, and don't owe him anything. The Yankee tradition is fine without him. He needs the Yankees more than the Yankees need him.


youre being too hard on him. i wasnt for greatly overpaying him, but i dont think the deal is bad. youre knocking him for negotiating, which isnt a new concept. as for your hard stance take it or leave it offers, youd just be asking him to leave, which would not go well at all. at the end of the day hes a yankee great and hasnt done much if anything wrong, so why play bully on him when hes down?

How is offering him double what any other team would pay him playing "bully on him when hes down"?

If I were the Yankees I would have said to him "We will give you 3/$45 million this week. Next week the offer will be 3/$42 million. The week after the offer will be 3/$39 million. After that, 3/$36 million.

"Let me know when you are ready to sign."
