Money does talk.


Kiss my azz , Corbin.




Would you turn down $40M ???? No, and neither did he...




All this sanctimonious bleating about a player taking the bigger offer is childish.  Nbody here, NOBODY wold turn down a job offer paying 40% more so complaining about Corbin is hypocritical.




Speak for yourself, because if I could get less but wear the Yankee pinstripes, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Not everyone in this world is a sellout, regardless to what most have been brainwashed to believe!




Yeh, well, you aren't ever going to wear the pinstripes so that is irrelevant.  So you are saying if a company you've wanted to wotk for offered you a job at $100K/year, but another company offered you $140K/yr you'de take the $100K?  Yeh, right, sure you would.




Stupid comparison, 100-140k while is a lot of money isn't even near the same realm as 100 million.  Like I said he would be set for life whether it be a 100 million or 120 million, he chose greed over his own happiness.




"happiness"?? people make assumptions. he might have had some sort of dream of pitching for the the yankees but does anyone think he's gonna be "unhappy" on the nats. he's moved from arizona to washington so he's closer to his family plus now he doesn't have to adjust to a new league and they'll be a lot less pressure. he probably considered all these things and more. emotions and preferences aside, it's still a business. 





Seriously.  He isn't choosing between pitching for the Yankees and pitching for the Long Island Ducks.  Either way he's going to be in major league facilities and playing for a decent team.  This is a hard concept for baseball fans to come to terms with...  but once you're an actual MLB player I would imagine some of the fandom wears off.  That whole "dream of playing for the Yankees" thing sort of becomes a little less vivid when you've played in the majors for 7 years and competed against the Yankees several times.  I doubt Corbin was sitting there in his Yankee pj's watching the playoff games this past October.  I'm sure he thinks it would be cool to wear Pinstripes before his career is over, but it obviously wasn't that much of a priority.

It's actually a lot of pressure to pitch in front of family and friends in NY. Remaining in NL also takes some pressure off the table.

When I was a kid one of my coaches had pitched for the Cardinals; he always wore a Cardinal cap. One day, after the '64 WS, I jokingly called him a traitor. He went on to explain to me that he never got a paycheck from the Yankees.
