Need an economic uplift?

mark-teixeira-3Just watch the New York Yankees as they continue to gobble up every high-profile, huge-salary, free agent on the market. Just when I thought the Yankees were blowing smoke about signing Mark Teixeira, they go on and sign him for $180 million over four years – it’s those damn Yankess. Don’t they have enough already with Sabathia and Burnett? And what the hell were the Red Sox thinking? They needed Teixeira to compliment Big Papi; don’t we remember how Manny did it when he was in Boston?

I’m happy for Teixeira because he got the big paycheck and it’s always nice to see a hometown guy, not only get paid like a superstar but, play like a superstar. Unfortunately for Maryland and I, he didn’t end up in Baltimore or D.C. like most of us would have hoped. It’s those Yankees again, going after the free agent market like recessions don’t even exist. It has also been reported that they may still pursue Manny Ramirez, which would probably force the networks to televise every single Yankees’ game. The Yankees off-season free agent bill is already sitting at $424 million and they’re still thinking of Manny? Almost unbelievable…
