Yankees Decide to Get Some Takeout

ESPN.com - MLB - Yankees seek working agreement with China baseball:
A contingent of executives from the New York Yankees will fly to China next week with the hope of concluding ongoing negotiations on a working agreement with the China Baseball Association. This could lead to the Yankees dispatching coaches and trainers to work with players in China, and perhaps, in years to come, beginning a baseball academy.

According to a major league executive who has been briefed on the organization's intentions, the Yankees -- operating in consultation with Major League Baseball -- have been in negotiations for seven months on this deal. The Yankees' goal is to get their brand into the world's most populated nation, and put themselves in position, down the road, to scout talent, while working with members of the CBA to improve the state of baseball in China.

As the article notes, this doesn't mean any other team is blocked from pursuing the same kind of deal, but let's be serious; those mad BossBucks can put a Yankee cap on so many Chinese heads that "Yankees" and "baseball" will be friggin' synonyms.

I personally think it would be more appropriate if the Yanks created a partnership with North Korea and Iran..

HAHA! LMAO! ROTF! that teh funny! ELEVENTY!!11!!

It wasn't Darth Boss George's idea that this "revenue sharing" shit got implemented ("extortion for succeeding"... which the Sox are now getting up close and personal with), and it wasn't DBG who threw a shitfit when the Yankees cut a deal with Adidas.

The Yanks are the ones who are considered the epitome of business; the rest of the league? mostly whiny commie Democrat bitches who won't spend their own money, but demanded handouts from the Big Daddy in the Bronx.

Gotta agree with you, TC. Our respective owners are 'doing it right' while the rest of the league's ass-clowns haven't a clue. New York is shelling out $200M for parking and a park and the rest is coming out of DBG's exceptionally deep pockets. The Sox are spending their own coin in refurbishing Fenway. The rest suck on the teet of gummint. I'll do some research this weekend and post something on how much each team gets/has got from their 'locals.'

WB will have problems with the Chi-Coms as long as Wang Chung is in the lineup. Remember, he's from Taiwan.

Feh, by the time the Commies produce a player who can make the majors Wang will be rearry rong time retired.

Chief? Take a hard look at KC. I can't believe those fuckers ain't making money.
