just another reason for the Yankees to sign Lester in the off season.

The league needs a scapegoat for all that ails the sport.. Be it steroids or the gap between small market and large market payrolls the Yankees are always the devil to many.

Not unusual, teams don't usually broker a trade within their own division. I wouldn't be annoyed about it.
Always proud to be a Yankee fan.

that's not blacklisted. The teams owners didn't want their players traded to the yankees and they had every right to insist on that. Blacklisting would have been if all owners or the league consipired to not have players traded to the yankees.

as a Yankee fan how would you feel if the Yankees traded Robertson to the Red Sox if they were in contention?

I'm not saying it's "wrong". I wouldn't have traded them in the division either... 


I'm just saying the Yankees will likely use it as another reason (among many) to target Lester.

spite and emotional reactions are a bad thing to react on and I'm sure it will have zero impact on the Yankee decisions on who they sign

The point is, that's their only advantage, because most teams don't really want to deal with them, at least when it comes to big name players.

   Unless Lester or Price can hit a lot better than most experts suspect...I don't want either.

Same thing happened when the Mariners traded Cliff Lee, they pulled the rug out from NYY because of the Rangers adding Smoak, even though NYY had a "handshake deal".


This has been going on for a while now.
