Yankees to spend $72 billion this offseason
By Billy O’Douchebag
Staff Writer, New York Post

Last year the Yankees spent $423 million to sign big free agent names like C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira. But this offseason, their plans are even far more ambitious.

According to Yankees front office sources, the Yankees plan to sign every free agent on the market this year, thus leaving the other 29 teams in baseball scrambling to find enough warm bodies to field a team.  ….

Once the Yankees have signed every free agent on the market, the team will have some difficult personnel decisions to make. The team has already informed outfielders Johnny Damon and Nick Swisher that they will be sent down to AA Trenton.

Nats Reach a Double-Triple With 100th Loss

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

For the second straight year the Natinals have lost more than 100 games, reaching the 100 mark Thursday and 101 Friday night to move within one of last year’s 102. They are only the fourth team in 25 years to accomplish the double-triple.

But have heart, struggling Nats fans. The Devil Rays lost 100 in 2001 and 106 in 2002. Six years later, after coming to Jesus and renaming themselves the Rays, they made it to the World Series in 2008.

Nats Edge Closer to Bryce Harper Signing

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

The Pirates and Orioles are turning in Herculean efforts to catch the Nats in the Bryce Harper Sweepstakes, but it’s almost impossible now. After losing six in a row, the Pirates won Friday. The Orioles have lost an impressive eight straight, but even if they lost their remaining nine for a 17-game losing streak, the Nats would have to go 8-1 for the O’s to tie it. Pittsburgh’s win put them back to 5.5 behind with 10 games to go, meaning they would have to lose seven to tie an 8-1 Nats finish.
