A day after last year's lefty masher, Marcus Thames, moved out to LA, the Yanks wasted no time in filling that roster hole, today signing Andruw Jones to a 1-year deal to be the 4th outfielder.
According to Jon Heyman, the deal is worth $ 2 million with the possibility of another $1.2 mil in incentives. Hmmm, where did I read that contract proposal before? Who could have suggested that deal? Oh that's right, it was ME!
"P.S.- If the Yanks are actually picking nits about money on the deal then I'm going to be pissed. Give the dude 1 year and $ 2 mil with incentives and call it a day."
So I guess they can call it a day now, right? Who cares, hit the music!
