O.K. Enough CNN. Enough local radio bulletins. Enough obsessing about the fire. It’s making me a nervous wreck. Despite the water-dropping planes and the best efforts of heroic firefighters, it’s not contained and the winds are supposed to get worse tomorrow and a friend who evacuated last night came back to his beautiful house today to find this.
Very depressing. I’d rather focus on the offer the Yankees made to Sabathia – $140 million for six years. And that was just the opening bid! Rumor has it we’ll go to $150 mil before it’s over!
But I’d be remiss if I didn’t alert the Yanks to the additional costs CC will incur. I mean, take a look at him.
He’s the size of a hippopotamus, no offense, and he’ll require several extras that will run up the Yankees’ tab.
For example, it’ll be a fortune just to feed him.
And keep him hydrated.
And to convey him between his residence and the ballpark.
He’ll need a bed suitable for his ample girth.
And size 18 EEEE Prada shoes.
Even the usual chain or two won’t be enough for his neck; he’ll need several.
You get the idea. We’re talking about the Yankees having to cough it up for super-sized everything. And so I have to ask: Is he worth it?
Absolutely. (It’s not my money.)
