Yankees to add Maddox to their allstar team


 Share

Recommended Posts

Sources say that the Yankees are very close to a deal will maddox and expect to sign him tomorrow.

Okay, I understand that this is the most amazing thing for a yankees fan, but this is a slap in the face to every other team and fan.

I dont give a ****, Yankees are making MLB a ****ing joke.

If I was a yankee fan and im far from one, I would be happy, cause its an amazing team, but deep down inside I would know this is not how championships should be won.

This really makes me sick and it is no wonder that MLB intrest have gone down as every year passes

Doesnt MLB have a salary cap? How the hell are the Yanks afford all these great stars?

No, you have the money you can buy anyone you want.

Only thing they have in place is a luxury tax which doesnt mean jack if you can pony up the dough

I never said I didnt want it, I just understand that it will never happen

I am almost convinced after all this, it will definitely be in the talks, and the players union has zero leverage.

Stuff like this makes 1/3 of the teams in the league completely obsolete. Fans will lose interest, and such.

If Maddox signs with the Yankees, baseball will become sport's official joke.

Baseball is to far from hockey, you wont have superstars not play well together like the Rangers. Baseball is almost like a one on one sport. Hockey you need to atleast somewhat like/respect your teamates. You need to know there positioning and the such. But I must say that, even though this is a joke, I would be happy to be a Yankee's fan. As a fan, you can only ask your owner do one thing and that is give your team a chance to win every year. Who defines that more the Boss? I really hope my Angels kick his ass.

no. NO. NOOO. **** NOOOOO.

You have got to be kidding me.

First of all, its Maddux with a U

Second, the Yankees suck more than ever before if this happen

This would turn Greg Maddux from my favorite player ever to a disgrace.

He has had several great offers from great teams. If he signs with the Yankees, it would be lower than low. Tom Glavine would be a hero to Braves fans again.

This is pathetic.

I was just about to go to bed and i decide to do one last neowin check, and i see this load of buffalo ****. I swear if this happens, im going to cry.

PLEASE GREG, DONT DO IT!

I'm off to pout about the Yankees. Later.

I'm from Boston and i've always hated the Yankees, but this just makes it all that much worse. :crazy:

It'll take away from the actual competition of the game between good teams...and make it a monopoly of sorts as they win most games against basically any other team in the league. :angry:

Where is the source of this story ?? I've read other news articles that completely contradicts this rumour

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=1736923

Yankees GM denies the rumor however this is what he should be doing. Tomorow afternoon is A-Rods day when they make the offical press conference welcoming him to the yanks. It would be foolish of him to say they are close to a deal with maddux and take some spotlight off A-Rod.

Yankess GM in my opinion will want to keep this off the radar just like they did with A-Rod.

Its not a gareentee because I know Maddux said he only wants to pitch in the NL, but odder things have happened.

I think it is a done deal.

Hahaha, I invite them to take Maddux. He hasn't exactly been impressive the past few years (watching Braves games when he pitched became hard to watch alot of times).

This is funny, though. The players won't even have to strike to ruin the game once and for all. I'm sure alot of the fans will become disgusted with the sport by the end of the year. I know I already am.

I refuse to go see the Yankees in Oakland this year.

I'm done defending the Yankees. George spends his money well, simple as that. Go yankees!

Yeah, when you can buy championships no **** you're spending your money well. It ruins the game for everyone else though.

It's almost like they're to the point that they'll need to split the teams up in divisions according to team salaries.
