Do you think the Yanks got "their money's worth" with ARod and Giambi?
Giambi? He was 31 when the Yankees signed him. 4 of the first 5 years, he received MVP votes. Then he turned 36 and the wheels fell off. Steroids or not, did anyone really think he would maintain his prime performance into his late 30s?
The Yankees didnt get full value, not because Giambi took steroids, but because they ignored common sense. I'm guessing they signed him knowing that the contract would be a disaster at the end and that it was the cost of getting those first few years of MVP type performance.
