Angry White Yankee Fan

Why the hell haven't we signed C.C. "Fat Toad" Sabathia? For a guy who wanted to get his free agency issues out of the way as early and quickly as possible, he sure is taking his time, no? Well here's Angry White Yankee Fan's not-so-original and not-so-source-based opinion on why it's going down like this:

C.C. doesn't want to sign with the Yankees. He, like most players in the Santino Steinbrenner Era, is simply using the Yankees to get a better deal out of a different organization; an organization he respects and wants to play for. But no team is going to offer what the Yankees will and so he's stuck reluctantly going to a team he doesn't want to play for.

So where does that leave the Yankees? They pay a bailout-sized contract to a player who doesn't want to play for them, who also hasn't proven that he can pitch in October, and who probably is going to get defecated on by the entire New York Media that he clearly doesn't want to play in front of. Angry White Yankee fan has said it before and he'll say it again, thank god the Yankees didn't do anything crazy, like trade a 5th starter, the new Mark Prior, and a 4th outfielder to Minnesota for Johan but instead waited around to sign a fat pitcher who can't pitch in October and will only pitch for the Yankees because his players union is pressuring him to sign.

I agree with everything you said. And I still think we need to sign him

it really would be revolutionary for a player to not take the highest bid and play somewhere where he might enjoy himself. regardless, ill enjoy seeing CC take 3m between pitches as he sweats off a few hot dogs whether he plays in LA or NY.

I actually agree with you BH but in this internal battle between my economic world view and my wanting whats best for yankees, the yankees win out. Man I should have added that to my douchebag article
