    Maybe the real Bambino curse is that no Sox player will ever live up to their potential once they go to the Yankees ever again?

    As a young person, I like the shift. But I also like cricket from time to time, so I take it for what it's worth.

    I had forgotten that Luis went there. Sparky Lyle did pretty good in pinstripes though.

    he had some rough years professionally and personally, it would be great to see him send it out on a high note. i remember when cleveland had him and bartolo at the top of the rotation, it was like big pun and fat joe. those guys combined for a ton of wins and kís over their careers.

    Another reason to dislike modern pro sports. This retirement tour shit. Hey, if you're a superstar like Lindsey Vonn or Brady if he announces soon, I kinda get it, but CC has been meh for years now, and he thinks he's worthy of a season long goodbye love fest. Good pitcher, but, c'mon. Just quit and go away with your bags of money.

    Machado to Padres....30 mil a year for 10 years. Glad the Yankees did not encumber the team with that. Would rather pay for pitching and let the young guys develop. Gonna have to pay Judge, et al, in a couple of years,

    CC has actually been pretty good the last 3 years, he was meh in his early 30s. And he's second on the active wins list, with 246 wins. I don't see any issue with announcing now.

    There are tons of reasons to hate pro sports, and to hate the Yankees, but this isn't one.

    Holy shit! 300 million! What the fucking fuck. And he's probably on the downslope. Now, that's a good reason to hate modern sports. That's fucking ridiculous.

    Itís just bonkers to me that Machado is commanding the same $ as Harper. Heís talented but a head case, and didnít perform well in the playoffs.

    Harper isnít like some college headed veteran either, but he looks like ghandi compared to Machado.

    except Machado has been way more consistent.

    Really? I guess that surprises me but Iím not really up in his career stats line.

    Harpers numbers are skewed cause heís had years where nobody will pitch to him cause the rest of his team is so shitty

    Noone should get 10 years, its why they havent been signed.
    Padres have a lot of good young talent and a killer farm system, will be good around 2022/3. And then all those players will be looking for a home as Padres wont have $ to sign them...

    Fine by me.

    Looked at in the whole, he's just bringing up the median salary a bit for all the 26 yr olds playing baseball for a living.
