    There are a finite number of franchises, but unlimited $10 hot dogs.

    Um, no. How many games did he miss due to injury? Hell, the dude had his damn hip replaced. And then there's the whole debacle around his steroid use that destroyed his value as the next Babe late in his career, which is why the Yankees paid him so much. No, he's a classic example of a player that's rewarded late in his carrer for his prime with another team. Like Pujols.

    apples and oranges, you’re comparing his second deal to the first.
    .....I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

    The Yankees paid him so much because George was getting senile. Cashman wanted to let him walk

    Exactly. During the 10 year deal sign with Texas that was traded to the Yankees, he averaged 151 games a season. He had a cumulative WAR of 82 over those ten seasons, which is more than Jeter's entire career, and above the median hall of fame career. Over that 10 year span he never had a season WAR under 4 (a streak neither Ruth or Williams managed in their careers).

    Benny, you're thinking of the idiotic extension the Yankees signed him to.

    I'm no A Rod fan, but he lived up to that first deal with a major assist from Biogenesis.

    Batters on steroids against pitchers on steroids hitting balls to fielders on steroids. Sounds like a level playing field to me.

    Outside of the HR records I'm not sure why anyone is so bothered by the steroid era of baseball.
