I hate the Yankees

True the Yankees signed some busts. But overall their huge payroll guarantees them an advantage in team talent, year after year.  They haven't had a losing season since when the 1980's, and I don't think they will ever have another one (unless MLB puts on a salary cap).  

Girardi failed to get the most of the talent he had, especially in the post season. That's why the Yankees eventually gave up on him and let him go.  I don't think Girardi would have been successful with the Orioles either.  He's a mediocre manager and he is very annoying, with his intensity and demeanor. 

Teixera was by far a bust for them. Almost 1000 games in 8 season, and very good WAR in 4 seasons, and 2 more positive number WAR for 2 bad seasons.

I think most teams would have taken that.

To give just one example, the 2014-2015 teams were not much on paper. Girardi led both to second-place finishes and post-season appearances. The rosters for both teams were so weak that no pundits predicted they could go all the way. That wasn't Girardi's fault.

I'm sure Girardi was a veritable wizard to coax 84 wins out of a $258 million payroll in '14.  Wasn't that the highest payroll in the history of baseball?  That was the Yanks version of the 1998 Orioles.

Red sox 2019 payroll is listed at 249, per Sportrac

Sportrac shows the Yankees at 245 mill.

The Yankees were outscored by 21 runs in 2013 and yet won 85 games; by 31 runs in 2014 and yet won 84 games; and by 22 runs in 2016 and yet won 84 games.    I consider that to be a very good job by Girardi.    Yes he had big payrolls on those teams, but a lot of aging, unproductive players and that wasn’t his fault.

I’m close to wrapping up a project where I’ve calculated the surplus or deficit of every MLB contract in history over $100 mm, using the valuations calculated by Fangraphs based on prevailing free agent prices at the time.  I’ll  be posting the full results within a few days.    But for now, just know that Teixeira was paid $180 mm and his performance based on prevailing prices was worth $123.5 mm, a $56.5 mm deficit.    That’s pretty bad, but there have been about 20 contracts that were worse so far (out of 78 contracts over $100 mm, about 25 of which are too early to judge).   So, bad contract, but one the Yankees could easily afford.

first 4 years was pretty smooth sailings, as he had a very strong WAR.

Everybody gambles on players not getting hurt, which is not the norm, and they do get hurt, or get older, and somebody both.

This will forever sum up all Yankee fans always.

Anyone else pick up what that fat dude is saying?  It sure ain't, "I need another hot dog".

That's one of a dozen little Yankee Fan things in that scene.  Apparently something really good just happened, and that guy's first reaction is to angrily say "F-you" to the world.

Not many better ways than to see the Yankees exit the postseason than by seeing Chapman give up a walkoff.  

10 years without a WS appearance.  They must be in meltdown mode.

Try since 1983, dickfarts.  Try that one on for size and let me know how it feels.

Say what you will about Bud Selig, but his expanded playoffs have made it very, very difficult for a team that has unlimited resources and never really has an off year to build a true dynasty.  If this was the old days, prior to playoffs, where you go straight to the World Series, the Yanks would have had six or eight or ten more championships since 2000.  Even with the old 4-team playoffs they'd probably have another 4-5 titles.
