Cash? Is this the end of the Shopping Spree?

Christmas is still two days away.

Go buy Manny for Hank's stocking and watch all of baseball's heads asplode.

ESPN - Sources: Mark Teixeira, New York Yankees agree to 8-year deal

Oh, Lord, PLEASE use all your divine powers in guiding Mr Cashman to Manny's bank.

If that DOES happen then the Skanks will truly be the Sawx of old (25 players/25 cabs).

Yes, you can buy a championship (see Marlins/Diamonbacks). However, it is far more difficult to buy team chemistry.

While I would have LOVED it if Theo et al had signed Teix, I have no problem with him not in Rouge Hose. My preference would be to pick up a solid bat/4th outfielder (Hello? Mr Baldelli? This is Mr Henry...).

So, the question won't be answered until some time in September: Did they buy it or are they last years Tigers?

If you think about it, right now the Yanks have traded Giamroido, Abreu, Mussina, Pettite and Pavano for Teixeida, CC, and TJ, with room left before they match last year's roster payroll. Also, I'm pretty sure they don't pay a lux tax next season because they laid money out for the new Stadium; after this season more salary (Damon, Matsui, and someone I can't remember) comes off the books. So....

Cash will have an even bigger than usual pile of Boss bucks to toss around.
