Sure. Do you know how quotes are supposed to be used?
I don't think you do.

We've always been good, I don't take this stuff personally. Do you?

Very much so.   Deeply personal.   That's what the internet is all about, right?

You should probably work on not taking it personally.

If I valued your opinion, I might.

You secretly value my opinion and want my approval.

If you know about it, it's not a secret, right?

Well, it's our secret. Or it was.

Back on topic:

Much like Pete Rose, A-Rod has become his own worst enemy.  Whether it was him personally or just "his people" stating that he will fight any suspension handed down on him for Biogenesis, he's looking like he believes he should be above the game.  By taking such a combative stance, he's daring Bud to use his "best interests of the game" powers to ban him and cut off any chance of an appeal.

I honestly don't see him ever playing another game in Yankee pinstripes.  And as a Yankee fan, I just want to move on from him.

Bronx Zoo 2.0 needs to come to an end.

I disagree. It's well within Arod's rights under the JDA to appeal a suspension. It's Selig acting "above the game" by indicating that he will suspend Arod outside the rules of the JDA and not allow an appeal to an arbitrator. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Arod, he still has a right to due process.

USA Today published an interview with Buck Showalter. He's pretty ****** at the thought the Yankees are going to be completely freed from ARod's contract - he said it'll create an imbalance in the league and give the Yanks freedom to spend their way out of their current situation and right back to the top of the AL again. I totally agree. These suspensions should not benefit the teams these players play for. Milwaukee got a gift as well with Braun's suspension coming now. It's utterly stupid.

But there is one comment Buck made in the article that I'm really shocked at and if it's an actual quote, it was a really stupid move by Buck:

"If Bud lets them get away with that, they're under the luxury tax," Showalter told USA TODAY Sports. "If they can reset, they can spend again and I guarantee you in two years Matt Wieters is in New York."

Why would you say that out loud about one of your own players? Is he trying to shame Wieters into signing an extension? Makes no sense.

In 2020, Machado will represent the Yankees in the All Star game.
