But we paid the same for frickin Jaret Wright. I'd easily take the money that funded that April Fool's joke and give it to Lieber.

it sucks. I think that Wright will have some struggles. He will be away from Mazone. Lieber was very solid in the playoffs and we know what we could get out of him. I would easliy take Lieber over him. When I read that we would be paying Wright that kind of money I wasnt too happy.

Wright and Lieber are overpaid. As a Yankee fan, though, wouldn't you rather pay Lieber for a one year, $8 million contract than Wright for a three year, 21 mill contract? The Yankees are weird.

No Cashman is an idiot. He obviously got blind-sided by the Benson deal thinking he could get Lieber for 2 years/12 M. So instead of cutting his losses and paying Lieber, he overpays for a pitcher that is worse than Lieber IMO.

I'd agree. As much as I don't like admitting it, I do think it takes a special pitcher to pitch in NY. The Yankees just let one go--is Wright one of them? I don't think so.

And I'd bet Cashman isn't driving the bus.

Maybe. It is usually difficult to tell how much George is meddling. However, I can't see George saying..."I want Milton and Wright and Womack". I can see him saying "I want RJ". Cashman is way overrated as a GM and has made a LOT of mistakes since 2001 IMO.

LOL. When I read that I pictured Cashman sitting in Steinbrenner's office like George on Seinfeld and Steinbrenner going I want RJ, I want him now. :-D

I want RJ... and a Paizano's calzone!

But yeah, Lieber is a lot better than Wright and they're being paid the same amount for the same time period :-? WTF were the Yankees thinking?

For what it's worth, the Boston Globe reports that Lieber's deal was really 3/18--which should really get some Yankee fans boiling, if true.
