A Short Pros and Cons list for CC

I know CC Sabathia probably spent his weekend mulling over the completely insane $140 million/6 years offer the Yankees put on the table. I've compiled a brief pro/con list to help him more thoroughly evaluate the offer.

Con: Selling your soul to Satan.

Pro: Satan will pay you enough for your soul so that you can buy 78,212,290 and 1/2 Slurpees at 7-Eleven. That comes out to 35,697 Slupees a day for 6 years, or-if you're the frugal sort-4,283 Slurpees a day for the next 50 years.

Choose wisely.

All I can think of is the knight at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: "You must choose, but choose wisely."

Or at $220K each he could buy 636 Lamborghini Diablos.

Insane! There gets to be a point where more money does no real good on an individual level.

With Carl Pavano gone, the Yanks need a new albatross. Here's hoping CC's their bird.

Re-TAH-ded offer.

The brewers made him some kind of offer right? Heres hoping there are some people out there that still want to be heroes to fans who will appreciate them forever.

Speaking of that, I just watched a Kirby Puckett tribute I picked up on VHS at Goodwill for $2. It was made the year he retired.

Did anyone else realize that both Kirby and Torii Hunter were hit in the face the last year they were Twins? Obivously, it was what ended Puck's career, and Torii wasn't hurt as badly... but thinking about that incident now, makes me think it was a beyond-the-grave warning to Mr. Hunter.

To bad he didn't listen.

Take heed, Carsten Charles.

He could also buy 7,782,101 games of Monopoly (17.99 at Target) and have some spare change left over.

When A-Rod signed his contract last off-season, I helped him spend his money in this blog post.

With that kind of money, he could have put in almost as much money as the Pohlads did with our new stadium!
I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but it's interesting.
