“Where the hell are the Yankees? They’re not at the Winter Meetings. … The Yankees are in the process of building a team that could prove not only unsuccessful but also unwatchable … Maybe this is all misdirection. … The Yankees of old would routinely pull stunts like that, claiming to be out on a player, then signing him the next day.  Those Yankees made no apologies for their financial muscle, but you had to admire them – they were rascals.  These Yankees? They’re accountants.  And they’re putting all of us to sleep.”
