im not going to argue with you anymore, everything i say you twist and turn into something completely different. this started out as me making a mere observation as to what the patriots did this offseason you think it's different from the yankees fine whatever.
oh yea and some people would say randy moss is washed up too, and donte stallworth when was the last time he played a full season?
the money aspect i don't even know where you pulling this stuff from. I was jsut making a mere observation that a lot of times the teams with the most talented individual players do not win, and i was using the yankees as an example of that. unbelievable.
point remains its an opinion and there is no right or wrong answer.
what is not an opinion however si that you said these players have no gas left in the tank, the numbers dont lie buddy they have all had just as good years with the yankees as they have throughout their career, with the exception of randy johnson.
the guys that got injured last year had nothing to do with frailty or being old, matsui breaking his hand while making a diving catch, the guys whole wrist bent backwards ANYONE is going to break something in that situation. on to sheffield the guy rarely gets hurt and last year he got injured when he got tripped in a freak play at first base. as for the pitchers i have no idea pitchers in general just seem to get hurt a lot and don't tell me otherwise, because i would say like 90% of teams have had at least one pitcher on the DL this season and most teams more then one.
regardless of the fact im done arguing with you, i address your points and then you go on to bring up irrelevant facts like contracts which were never even brought into the equation. then you go to say im bragging that we HAVENT won in a few years, I have no idea where you come from but NOT winning isnt something to be bragging about.
NOW MY POINT IS ADDING THE MOST TALENT IS NOT GOING TO EQUAL A SUPERBOWL/CHAMPIONSHIP AND I WAS USING THE YANKEES AS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS. IM NOT TALKING ABOUT MONEY OR LONG TERM CONTRACTS OR ANYTHING ELSE IS THAT SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR YOU.
ok now go twist that statement into something else, oh yea and as a yankee fan its funny because i think they do stupid things too, and i agree they have been bad in their free agent signings, but not because the guys have not performed. It's just that a team of mercenaries is never going to win because they are never going to try as hard and have the same chemistry as a home grown team, with some veteran leadership so there is no need to attack the yankees way of doing thing. ok? i agree i submit on that point.
