The Eagles are obviously upset about the new posting rules which max out at $20m to the team. Under the old system they would have likely tripled that. Good for them. As a Met fan and Yankee hater this is great news.
It will be difficult for the Yankees to make the playoffs with a rotation of:
Sabathia
Nova
Kuroda
Arroyo (insert any other average and soon to be overpaid starter here)
Phelps
