one problem i see is the Tax structure in NY , NJ, is a burden on salary, with Ohtani last year he is more comfortable on the left coast , closer to Japan ...Corbin suprised me turning down the Yankees whom he pulled for growing up in the Syracruse area upsate ..it ALWAYS COMES DOWN TO $$$ ,


also the TRAFFIC to /from stadium on the best of days is ..one stalled car or truck away from GRIDLOCK..., funny how Tanaka got a 7 yr deal , with opt out after 4 ..yet Cashman didnt wanna go for a 6 year deal , not much more $$ for that extra year...NOT THAT 100 MIL OVER 4-5 IS SOMETHING TO SNEEZE AT .

"it's when the Yankees score eight runs in the first inning .....and then slowly pull away"

Hearing Yankees never made official 5-year, $100M offer to Corbin. Told him they’d be comfortable w/ 4 or 5 years for $17M to $20M per year. So $100M was floated. When Corbin said he was seeking “Darvish money,” NY didn’t make offer. We will discuss on Hot Stove on YES at 7.

What it means is that the Yankees didn't want to overpay for Corbin. Nor should they. I wanted the Yanks to sign him but 5/100M was more than fair. 6/140 means the Nats overpaid.

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.

Corbin has already made over $15 million, an amount most of us will never see in an entire lifetime.  Add to that the $100 million the Yankees offered.  If he accepted that amount do you think he'd ever have to work again after baseball (while enjoying a very nice life style)?  Not to mention he'd be eligible for more millions after the 5-year deal was up.  To my way of thinking, once you're over $100 million it's more important to secure a place in an organization and location of your dreams than it is to grab a few more dollars and be unhappy.  Evidently, Corbin's Yankee dreams weren't very compelling at all.  But I still see the Yankees winning more championships in the next 5 (or 6) years than the Nationals. 




Must be nice to be a Rockefeller where $40 mil is "a few dollars more."

   I just hope the Yankees are not saving all their money for one signing...either Machado or Harper.

Exactly.


And there's no "snub"...he took the best offer, like any sane person would.

Sorry you're greedy, but YES, YES, and DOUBLE YES. Happiness ALWAYS comes first in my life, never greed. Ballplayers of today (and people who think the way you do) no longer care about loyalty, and their happiness comes in the way of the mighty dollar. The Nats can win 10 championships (they won't even win 1 in my lifetime), and it will never amount to ANYTHING compared to 1 Yankees championship. So yes, my answer remains the same. He's already rich, he doesn't need to be a billionaire. He only proved himself to be a phony Yankee fan, who only cares about money. That, and a coward, since he probably also feels if he came to the AL east, he would become the next Sonny Gray!
