    Yankees Tanaka -- 7/$155MM

    Yankees signed the big fish of the off-season.
    Comments?
    Does this deal make them automatic WS contenders?

    All this does is make CC the 2 man in the rotation. Doesn't make them contenders. A bat would.

    World Series contenders? I don't believe so either.. I think we have a pretty decent shot at making the playoffs but the durability of the team scares me. Should be an interesting season to say the least.

    If there is one thing I have learned it is that there is nothing that will guarantee a team of being in the post season'

    ^^^^^ Buck, you of all people should know you can never underestimate the Yankees.

    Payroll used to be a huge factor but that has declined especially in recent years.

    Here's a good article on it.

    Payroll not the factor it used to be
