Yankees may offer bogus contracts

joe-torreIt has been reported that the New York Yankees are thinking about putting a clause in the future contracts of their players and coaches that would restrict them from saying anything negative about the team and/or organization. Although it may sound like a crock, making you ask yourself “can they really do that?”, it is all in response to Joe Torre’s new book (recalling the 12 years he spent with the Yankees).

I believe the New York Yankees called it a “confidentiality clause”, but we all realize the sole purpose of the idea. The Yankees want to buy up everyone in the free agent pool, buy all the best coaches and managers, and now they want to make sure that the team ONLY gets positive publicity. What the hell does that say about the Yankees organization? To me, the Yankees are banking that someone who leaves the organization would most likely have negative things to say, and the Steinbrenner’s don’t want any part of that.

Just another great reason to root for the Yankees.
