well, i'm just gonna forget for a moment about the steroids, because it makes me sad and angry. i'm going back to the good old yankee bashing while sox are still the champions! yankees just rewarded an aging infielder with a career year for the team with the best record in baseball (coincidence?) with a two year deal. yankees also rewarded an once washed up but miraculously resurrected his career pitcher with a three year deal. i'm no baseball executive (duh), but no wonder yankees have a ridiculously high payroll, no depth on their roster and an aging team with most players in their declining phase of their career... womack had a career year in every sense - and it wasn't that good. he's not worth two years at $2 mil per. can you imagine paying a 36 year old womack $2 mil? wright resurrected his career, no doubt partly because of the magician leo mazzone (see neagle, hampton, etc.), which may or may not be a real resurrection. handing him 3 years at $7 mil per is a really risky move. out of 8 years he's been in the majors, he's pitched more than 100 innings just three times. given the state of yankees bullpen, why do they need a starter that is a huge gamble to pitch even 100 innings? i guess compared to brown and vazquez, $7 mil per year isn't that much, eh? yankee fans: please commence the sox's offseason move bashing!
