It is not cool that there is a possibility that the Yankees could sign C.C. Sabathia, Derek Lowe, A.J. Burnett and then trade for Jake Peavy. Does anyone else find this to be a little unfair?
I have written a few other articles about how I think there should be a salary cap because this is just getting out of hand. My favorite team will be lucky to sign Lowe or Burnett, let alone both and then Sabathia. This is not cool at all.
What ever happened to developing players and then using them in the majors?
Let’s not forget about the ridiculous trades they make. Nick Swisher for Wilson Betemit, Jeff Marquez and Jhonny Nunez. Betemit was good when he was with the Braves and sparing Chipper from time to time. He hasn’t produced at all with the Yankees. Nunez has a whole 3 innings pitched in the Dominican Winter League while Marquez has allowed 11 runs in 22 innings in the Arizona Fall League.
I thought that the trade was supposed to benefit both teams. Seems to me like the White Sox got screwed big time. Swisher had a down year average wise but still put up respectable power numbers. Why does it seem that the Yankees give up no one and get solid players in return. This whole thing is ridiculous.
