Note to Brian Cashman:

Just buy the Royals and their farm system.Sell every current Yankee to anyone who will buy them.  Fire sale.Otherwise, eat the contracts.But buy the Royals.  You can win until your contract runs out.Otherwise.  Misery followed by stupidity.

Brian (Fredo) Cashman gets contract extension, and I have had enough

I was already in a bad mood today. My purse was stolen last week when I was in an Upper West Side Thai restaurant called Land. (Helpful hint -- don't ever eat there!) Anyhow, I have spent the past 10 days dealing with all of the repercussions involved with the crime -- talking to the police and the insurance company, getting the credit card companies to remove the many hundreds...
