Good for Joe, he deserves to stay. Doesn't deserve the crap he gets from George but he deserves to stay, it's his team.
As for the B.J. Ryan thing, all indications are it's going to be a Contreras situation again between NY and Boston, with NY offering more money likely but Boston offering BJ the chance to close, which the Yanks can't match, not with Mariano there anyway.
And I don't see the Mazzone thing happening.
So they're giving up on Foulke?
Throwing him out the door?
Not throwing him out the door but it doesn't hurt to have a back-up plan, does it?
Then Ryan won't be guarenteed anything more than he'll be guarenteed in New York...
It will be interesting, but I think the Yankees have the advantage because they have more moeny to offer, plus the heir to Mariano Rivera's throne in 2-3 years.
