But instead he opted for choice B, which is that I will consider him spineless and greedy for all of eternity. Of course, the $161 million probably sweetens that deal a little.
It's spiteful, I know.....but there is a tiny little evil part of me that hopes the Brewers, by pitching him on short rest pretty much every rotation there at the end, wore him out just enough so that he's merely mediocre with the Yankees. The mere thought of the Yankees shelling out $161 million dollars for mediocrity makes me giddy. No, it's not likely. But a girl can dream, can't she?
On the other side of town, I was pretty pleased about K-Rod to the Mets for 2 reasons:
- K-Rod's out of the AL.
- I cannot, in good conscience, begrudge the Mets any sort of upgrade in the bullpen. Maybe Johan can take it a little easier now....poor fella.
