Fielder is a no brainer yet that contract is going to bite them in the you know what. I agree baseball hypocritical. When the yankees sign tex cc and aj. Ppl were outrage when we sign them.  Yet we need a 1st baseman and a ace at that time.  Yet this one is almost a george steinbrenner type of mouth or as anyone like to call it. A knee jerk reaction signing.

9 years though is really amazing.  Boras did a hell of a job and it kills me to say that.

Didn't you know, everyone else is allowed to purchase key players at high prices and spend the $$$ it takes to get to the post-season ... EXCEPT THE YANKEES!

I don't really think this was a wise investment. I'm sure they will win the central but their 3 best hitters best position in the field is 1st base. Fielder is overweight now when he was playing for a big contract. What's going to happen to that body in the next 9 years with the comfort of that contract. A guy like Arod who keeps himself in good shape can't even hold up . This reminds me of when the Yanks signed Giambi. I would be surprised if they don't regret this signing in a few years.

I can see that down the line too.  9 years is entirely too long for a guy with that body type.

what worries me is he is Cano's  agent. What is he going to try to squeeze out of the Steinbrenners after the 2013 season?


My guess is that he is  going to demand 9 years at at least  25  million.  Hal might let Cano walk.
