Buster Olney's Rumors

Here`s a few Buster Olney rumors, some of them are very interesting to me.
  • He thinks that Texiera will probably go to the Yankees. When first reading this I wasn't happy but then I read that he believes the yankees offer would probably be about 6 years, 18-20 million per year. I doubt that would get it done but if it could then it`d be a very good signing. The key with Texiera is how many years, any more than 6-7 years and I`ll be upset with it.
  • He reinforces the idea that the Yankees will blow everybody else away, by 30-40% (!) in the C.C. Sabathia bidding. While I would love to get the guy I hope the Yankees stay fairly sane in this.

It seems like those rumors about wanting to bring payroll down to around 180 million dollars are unfounded. That`s probably not happening if they bring in both Sabathia and Texiera.
