Very interesting. I thought the Yankees were smart not to match Houstons offer sheet. $10 million a year for Pettitte?? Give me a break. Turns out the Yankees actually surpassed it, but when your dealing with 10 figure salaries its gotta be worth 5 million or so to put the national league and 2,000 miles between you and Steinbrenner.
Speaking of which, Steinbrenner the bully must be feeling pretty snubbed. Colangelo in Arizona basically refused to deal Schilling to him and then probably took less to give him to his worst rival. Then a lifetime Yank and multiple world series winner takes a paycut to get out of town. Nice to see the league stand up and show that they have a pair!!
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
