2 words: Salary Dump
it's not just Contreras and Navarro - it's Contreras with his (most of) salary paid and Navarro..makes a heck of a lot more sense. Best part about the Yankees (if you're a fan) they CAN afford to this. And to lure Randy in, we offer a 2 year extension so he can get his 300 wins. Again, they CAN afford to do this.
That's why you will see RJ pitching in the Bronx this summer and fall.
Sorry it's a little late, but I just had to bring this back up. Rmeesig you talked a lot of smack about how Johnson would be going to the Yankees. You even fitted him for pinstripes in one post in this thread.
No "yeah buts" or anything dealing with anything else. Just admit you blew this one and then the next time you make a guarantee I'll give it at least a bit of belief
