But all things are not equal. Look at the Mets payroll at < $100M. Consider the Yankees payroll which is still > $200M.
Also, don't believe everything Cashman says (or any other GM for that matter). What Ryan said to the Yankees in so many words is if you pay me I will come. I will come setup for you if you pay me as a closer. They wouldn't do it. I'm not saying that's a mistake either just the current situation.
So you're telling me that Cashman is lying, yet you claim to know the truth? I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm just trying to point out the fault in your argument. I'm sure if the Yankees dished out $60 million, Ryan would have come. But who in their right mind would do that for a setup man?
I'm not even saying that the Yankees would get into a bidding war with the Mets. All I am saying is that they easily could, if they wanted to. You're acting like they are in some amazing financial bind. That isn't the case.
