eternal yankees

Jesse Marinoff Reyes:

baseball covers (heavily laden with Yankees) to whet the appetite for the smell of green grass, the crack of the bat, and the ever eternal boys of summer. See if you can spot a few of “my” ringers… PLAY BALL!

Is this the one where A-Rod (famously) sticks his foot in his mouth? Yup. Note: This is shortly after then-Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks signed Rodriguez to a then-record shattering (and still embarrassing) 10-year, $252M contract. Once again, the Yankees, Red Sox, et. al. may have the biggest payrolls, but it’s the so-called smaller market clubs that go nuts and sign players over value. Of course, that doesn’t explain the Yankees bettering the contract when A-Rod “renegotiated” in 2007 after using a Rangers-negotiated opt-out clause.
