The quest for a 28th championship has died this year. The team with a payroll big enough to slide a bunch of smaller market teams fell to the Rangers . I am STUNNED. This is the Yankees . They should be rolling teams under the table with that big $300+ million payroll.
Next year the Yankees will need to SPEND MORE. At least up the ante and try and get payroll to $400 million and win baby. A 28th Championship must happen for them. The fans are demanding more spending to win damn it !
Some will say this is karma of some kind. That the Yankees beat the Rangers a few times and knocked em outta the playoffs. But hell...they deserved it. Was their payroll big and did they have superstars beyond A-Rod when they handed him $250+ million ?
Nooooo ! So what happens ...the Rangers have to have a fire sale and pretty much like a flea market , sell A-Rod off to the highest bidder between the Red Sox and Yankees.
Hell is it any shock Tom Hicks went broke ?
I mean the guy was $500+ million in debt and needed to unload the team by 2010. Dude..ya give one player $250+ million in 10 years , I'm sure beyond bein the Yankees , you'd go broke too !
The newest owner was a pleasent suprise. Who would guess that the group that bought the Rangers would have Hall of Famer , Nolan Ryan as president ?
Nolan you best enjoy this prize for now. The 1st Rangers trip to the World Series in 50 years. Because by god...the Yankees will have vengence. If they have to sign everyone to win next year ...they will. Because the Steinbrenner's demand to win !
