Darek Braunecker Sucks

What the hell is with this guy?  He's probably been the leak for all these bogus Washington National/7-year deal/new teams involved stories surrounding Lee over the last couple days and now he decides to just up and leave the meetings without giving anybody, most importantly the Yankees, a chance to make a formal offer to his client.  The fucking balls, huh? 

I definitely don't remember reading the chapter that discusses bailing out on all your potential suitors in "The Art of The Deal."  Something tells me the rest of these negotiations are going to go something like this:

Heyman Says Cliff Lee Offer Coming Today

"Yankees are going to make a "very strong" six-year offer to Cliff Lee today that is expected to be for $23 to $25 million per year." - via

Well there you go, Nolan Ryan.  If this is true then you and your gang of yokels might as well check out of your hotel rooms, grab your ten gallon hats, and mosey your fat Texas asses back to Arlington because there ain't no way in Hell you're competing with that.

All we can do now is sit back and wait for it to become public...
