Yankees Whine: Lieber's Playing Hardball

The Junkees have proven, by the way they've handled the whole Lieber situation, why Ca$hman is a buffoon.

They turned down an $8 million option on Lieber with hopes to resign him to a 2-year $12 million deal. Meanwhile, the Mets signed Kris Benson to a 3-year deal worth about $7.5 million per. Now Lieber is just as good, if not better, than Benson, so the idea that you were going to offer him only $6 million per is ridiculous. So he'll probably get a comperable offer elsewhere, and leave New York. So what will end up happening is that the Junkees lost their #2 starter because they didn't want to give him an extra $500,000. Who knows - maybe they are serious about cutting payroll!

I think it’s hilariously ironic that you devoted so much time and energy to whine like the loser you are about the Yankees acquiring Pedro when the METS are about to make an offer to him that is comparable to the Sox’s offer.

Once again, reality makes a hypocrite out of you. You have nothing to say when your own favorite team goes after him, but your hole has plenty of trash to spew when the Yankees do.

In fact, your Red Sox fan partner hasn’t weighed in on Pedro being resigned by the Red Sox. In a perfect world you should both be opposed to Pedro being signed by any team that even approaches the type of deal he’s looking for. But in your delusional fantasyland of Yankee hate, such is never the case. This is yet another example the hypocrisy which diminishes any validity to you as a Yankee hater and your feeble arguments.

Let’s review a couple of your finer moments, shall we:

TV Networks
You hate the YES Network, but are strangely silent on the impending Mets’ network and the fact that NESN is owned by the Red Sox. I guess everyone else can have their network except the team with the most fans across the country and largest demand for such a network. Brilliant. The funny thing is that even when the Mets do have their own network, you, being the loser that you are, would still be watching YES. BTW, was anything good on last night? I missed it because I have a life.

Payroll
You say the Yanks have ruined baseball with their spending, but you give the Sox a free pass while they break the luxury tax threshold in the process of buying their championship. Manny justifies it because of the discrepancy between the Yanks and the Sox. Nice rationalization. Too bad there are plenty of teams that the Sox have a $60 mil advantage over. In fact, there are more of those teams than teams that are within $5 mil of the Red Sox. Furthermore, BOTH teams are over the luxury tax threshold. It’s like one murderer saying he’s not as bad as the next murderer because he only stabbed his victim once as opposed to twice. Get real RSN – when the novelty wears off by next spring, you will be in the same boat as the Yankees. In fact, it’s already happening.

Endorsements
You rip Joe Torre for giving the Boss his approval to pursue Pedro, but you have nothing to say when Willie Randolph does the exact same thing. The really hilarious thing about this is that the Mets are looking more and more like the Yankees in terms of coaches and front office. But it sucks for you because, as your team begins to do things more and more like the Yanks, you will be exposed as the mindless wanker that you are. And the more wins the “Yankee way” produces at Shea, the dumber you look (if that’s possible). How fitting: the better your favorite team does, the more irrelevant you become as a “blogger”. LMAO

On the Leiber situation, you logic is. . .well, nonexistent. What the Mets offer Kris Benson (wtf?) is completely irrelevant to the value of Leiber to the Yankees or his value on the open market at this point in time. (Is Benson the only free agent that you could come up with to compare? If you don’t know enough about MLB beyond your favorite team, you are lowering the bar in baseball blogland.)

And Leiber is not the Yankee’s #2 starter, nor would he be by the time spring training rolls around were he to sign with the Yanks. For someone who watches so much YES, you are completely clueless and lend validity to one of the longest running jokes amongst Yankee fans: If you want to find out about the Yanks, listen to a Yankee-hater and take the exact opposite of what is said.

For example, haters like you said there was no way the Yanks could make any kind of deal last winter. Then they made a deal for A-Rod. Similarly, this year, you’ve been saying that a deal for the Unit is impossible because the Yanks have nothing to offer. Suddenly your “nothing” turns into Javier Vasquez. It’s amazing that you don’t bother to put 1 and 1 together. Big money free agents can only sign with a team that can afford them. A-Rod and Randy Johnson can only go to one or two teams no matter what those teams have or don’t have in terms of prospects to offer in return. (Duh)
